Plans

Here are a few tips to help you get started:



1. Avoid his unique item in the early game. It’s going to be tempting, but you’ll do better sticking with standard items at first and picking up the Bonetooth Necklace when you can snowball it fast.

2. His Savagery (Q) affects turrets, unlike some similar abilities on other champions. Use it to push lanes and crush turrets quickly

3. His leap from brush can go over walls--picking the right place to ambush can provide you the opportunity to make a quick escape if things don’t go as planned.

How he plays

    Not unlike your standard house cat, Rengar loves to jump on things. But while your friendly pet enjoys the couch and countertops, Rengar prefers to go after the caster/support characters.
    His unique pouncing mechanic is easily the most fun aspect of the champion and the main determinate of whether or not you’re interested in buying him. When Rengar enters brush, his next auto-attack will cause him to leap at his target, within moderate range. It’s the perfect ambushing tool and fits in perfectly with his stalker gameplay.
    There’s a sadistic pleasure in watching someone debate internally whether or not you’re hiding in the brush. Their character steps forward, hesitates, takes a step back, and then timidly advances. POUNCE! You jump out of the bushes laughing while he curses his curiosity.

Cons And Pros

The rest of Rengar’s abilities are more straightforward, focused on tearing through enemy HP pools with single-target melee AD damage. A self-heal using his Ferocity resource (think of it as a Rogue’s combo points in WoW that can only be spent when you have 5) gives him an amazing presence in the jungle, the perfect environment for his shrub-hugging, team-jumping ways.

But even in a lane, his hopping is great for netting last hits on minions without fully exposing yourself to harassment. I preferred Rengar as a jungler/ganker, but I had a good time in-lane too.

The biggest concern players have about a new champ on launch day is how overpowered it is. Right now, Rengar feels almost perfect in that department. He’s strong, especially early game with his brutal Q stab-stab ability and self-heals, but he’s kept in check by his big susceptibility to CC--if you can lock him down for a few seconds, you can kill him.
