Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello! This is my first guide about League of Legends.And im going to do guide about my favourite solo lane champion - Renetkon.Renekton is tanky dps which excels at dominating lane with his high damage from W. Renekton does massive damage ultil late game,in late game his damage falls off way too big.
red armor pen
blue magic resist or magic resist per lvl,both works fine
quints 2 armor pen and 1 health quint
Not much to explain.
There's two ways to set up Renekton
1st - You can go offensive masteries (21/0/9)
2nd - Or you cant go by defensive (0/21/9)
I pretty much always use defensive masteries,because i feel more comfortable by having more defensive stats in early game.
I usually start with dorans blade.But sometimes i start with dorans shield if opponent is someone like irelia,lee sin or someone that you think going to give you hard time in your lane.
After first back i always grab boots and start building brutallizer(don't forget wards too!) after that i go for phage and i usually build atma's because at that time i probbably have around 2k hp~ and that's enough at the moment but you can be more confident and get more hp first.Usually my full builds is : Youmuu's Ghost blade,Frozen Mallet,Boots(depends on their team),Atma's Impaler,Guardian's Angel,and Sunfire Cape if you need more armor or Force of Nature if you need more magic resist
Standart sequence against those who don't have too much of harassment or sustainability - Max W first,than Q,and E,Always get your R when possible.
Against those who have quite harassment and sustainability - Max Q first,than W,and E,Always get your R
Flash/Exhaust - i recommended grabing flash instead of ghost because you can easily escape ganks with double E + Flash
Ghost/Exhaust - This one i don't really recommend i've used it long time ago,but when i tried using flash it was way better for everything
Flash/Ignite - Those who have heals (like Warwick)
Overall Renekton is an okay tanky dps which can dominate lane pretty hard but in a late game becomes quite a wuss.
Now let's talk about Renektons opponents
Easy ones :
Cho'gath - you can outharass him easily just dont get too greedy because he can always nom you when you're low hp
Yorick - You can outharass him easily if you level up Q first with no problems
Riven - No mather what you will max you should always defeat her
Talon - No sustainability,Easy to harass
Gangplank - After his nerfs he's not that hard to defeat,but can still be quite the pickle
Nasus - Don't let him farm and he'll become useless afterwards
Tough ones :
Irelia : She's one my most problematic champions sometimes her W and R can screw you over
Warwick : He's Q can harass you badly and ruin your lanning phase against him
Jax : Too much dodge,but beatable.
I know i haven't mention lot of other champions,but i've wrote those that i think you should know about
Pros / Cons
* Deals nice amount of damage in early/mid game
* Can outlane lot's of other champions
* His W damage is amazing
* R gives you nice amount of hp and deals bit of aoe damage
* Q gives him nice sustain
* E lets you to escape ganks
*Lacks of damage in late game
*His Stats could be better,since he's a damn giant crocodile
* Can be CC'ed
This is my first build,so don't judge too much me,my english is not perfect either.This guide is not perfect.This is only how i play Renekton.I've played around 100+ matches with him.I'm playing right now at 1,4k elo,it's not too high,but it's not too low either.
