Welcome to my Rengar guide! Here you will find a guide on how to hunt your as if you were the Predator himself.
Rengar is a melee fighter who excels in both top lane and is so-so in jungle. I was fairly dissapointed on a badass looking champion, and how he didn't seem very good , however, just recently I was playing with a Rengar, and he was going AP, since they had a couple AFK, I overlooked it, but then i started to try it out.
This is my first little mini-guide, as I'm not too good at making them , and before you vote, make sure you try him out, maybe not in ranked at first, but he's pretty much the most fun I've had played LoL in a long time, I'm also hoping to clean the build up, make it look nice, and in general add a lot more information, this is just a quick little guide of what I've been doing with AP Rengar enjoy!
Lore - Rengar, the Pridestalker
On every wall of his den, the trophy hunter Rengar mounts the heads, horns, claws, and fangs of the most lethal creatures in Valoran. Though his collection is extensive, he remains unsatisfied, tirelessly seeking greater game. He takes time with every kill, studying his prey, learning, and preparing himself for the next encounter with the one monster he never managed to defeat.
Rengar never knew his real parents, but was raised by a human who was revered as a legendary hunter. He was an ideal pupil, intently absorbing the lessons of his father, and improving them with his uncanny feral instincts. Before his mane had fully grown, Rengar set off on his own and claimed a wide territory for himself. Along its perimeter, he mounted the skulls of his slain prey - a warning to would-be aggressors. He thought undisputed reign of a region would fulfill him, but instead, he grew restless. No beasts in his domain proved challenging prey, and without formidable adversaries to push his limits, Rengar's spirit waned. He feared that no worthwhile game remained, that he would never again feel the thrill of the hunt. Just when things seemed their bleakest, he encountered the monster. It was a disturbing, alien thing, distinctly out of place in his world. It bore huge scything claws and devoured any animal that strayed across its path. Overzealous at the prospect of a challenge, Rengar ambushed the monster in haste. It far outclassed anything he'd hunted before. Their fight was savage, and each suffered crippling wounds. Rengar lost an eye, but the most grievous blow was to his pride. He had never before failed to make the kill. Worse yet, the severity of his injuries forced him to retreat. Over the following days, he hovered on the threshold between life and death. He was wracked with pain, but beneath it, he felt a glimmer of joy. The hunt was on. If such powerful beings existed in the world, he would find them, and stack their heads high. The monster, however, was a kill he wanted to savor. On his den's largest wall, he reserves a space for the beast's head, a trophy he swears will one day be the centerpiece of his collection.
"Prey on the weak and you will survive, prey on the strong and you will live." -Rengar
+Extremely fun to play
+Very high burst damage
+Great early game damage/harass
-Ult (countered by pink wards, oracles, TF's ult etc.)
Why AP? Are you trolling? High?
No, not at all, Rengar's W is a 1:1 ratio for AP, this means that endgame, if you have 800 AP, you can use your W, which ( for arguments sake) would hit an 1000, the base damage plus the AP if you use this at 5 stacks or 4 to get yourself to 5 stacks, you can use it twice, dealing huge AoE burst, then bola someone, maybe Q, ult and jump back on their squishies to finish them off with one or two more W's and your ignite.
I have played almost 40 games with AP Rengar in public matches and almost won all of them, I'm also 14/1 as of writing this with him in ranked.
