About Renekton

On a faraway world, Renekton was born a member of a race of bestial guardians created to serve as the rulers and protectors of their people. Alongside his brother Nasus, Renekton oversaw the upkeep of the Great Library, which served as both a vault of ancient knowledge and the repository of the teachings of the Cycle of Life and Death. While the enlightened Nasus taught those scholars who came to study, Renekton served as the Great Library's gatekeeper. He could sense the true natures of those who sought Nasus' teachings, and he sent away those with dark ambitions. Over time, however, his repeated exposure to this evil infected his mind. He grew furious with the malevolence in the hearts of men, and as he descended deeper into madness, he discovered he could quell the fury by cutting the evil from the men who possessed it. Unfortunately, the relief was as short-lived as the subjects, and the ''butcher's rage'', as it came to be known, would resurge even stronger. Consumed by his anger, Renekton turned on the one being who could defeat him -- his own brother. Nasus pleaded with Renekton to see reason. Realizing that he was beyond redemption, the despondent Nasus valiantly struck down his wayward sibling. Defenseless, Renekton waited eagerly for death's release. It never came. He was spared when summoners from the League of Legends claimed his brother. Caught in the wake of this powerful spell, Renekton tumbled for what seemed like ages between realities. When he finally emerged, he fell deep into the sewers of Zaun. Insane with fury, Renekton languished in his newfound home, driven senseless by his rage. That is until, by happenstance, he caught a familiar scent on the air. Believing that the familiar scent who guide him to the solace which was fading from his memory, he his brother all the way to the Institute of War. ''My brother has become hollow. Full of rage, but empty.'' -- Nasus, the Curator of the Sands.

Hi everyone! I'm new here. I created my account because I want to learn more about LoL and other champions. Well..., in this guide I'll show you how do i play with Renekton, the Butcher of the Sands.

Reign of Anger
Reign of Anger (Passive)- Renekton gains 5 Fury per attack. Having 50 or more Fury empowers his abilities with bonus effects but drains 50 Fury when they are used. Out of combat, he loses 5 Fury every 2 seconds.When below half health Renekton gains 50% more fury.

Cull the Meek
1. Cull the Meek- Renekton spins his blade, damaging all enemy units and healing himself for a small percentage of the damage dealt.It combines great damage, has a decent range and heals you at the same time, all of these on a really short cooldown.

Ruthless Predator
2. Ruthless Predator- Renekton will attack twice on his next attack (rage bonus:he will attack three times and do more damage) and stun his target.All you need to do is dashing next to it, auto-attacking once and using this ability which is just enough to destroy it in time.

Slice and Dice
3. Slice and Dice- Renekton spins forward doing damage. After using Slice and Dice you can use it again in a diferent direction within 4sec.You can bypass the terrain with it by dashing over thin objects, including the walls of the bases.

4. Dominus (ulti)- Renekton grows in sizea and deals more damage with his abilities. He also damage around himself while Dominus active.The huge health gain provides easy towerdiving early and can save your life in ganks or give you the upper edge over your opponent at any time. It has exceptionally good synergy with Atma's Impaler, providing you even more damage while it is on.

Some tips:
-you can use Slice and Dice to escape or get away from enemies
-Slice and Dice can jump through walls
-you can also use Slice and Dice to chase enemies
-if you are low health go to some minions and use only Cull the Meek, because it can heal you for a percentage of the damage dealt
-if you are low health and in a fight just use Dominus and you'll get some bonus health to escape from the battle

For runes I use:
Greater Mark of DesolationGreater Markcof Desolation
Greater Mark of Desolation- I use the ArP (Armor Penetration) Marks because Renekton is a high damage dealer. That means if that you will deal much more damage if you have ArP.

Greater Seal of Resilience
Greater Seal of Resilience- this Seal will help you survive in early game. Renekton really needs armor cuz he is a dangerous fighter.

Greater Sealcof Warding
Same as above, but with Magic Ressistance.

Greater Glyph of Focus
Greater Glyph of Focus- Renekton has got very hight cooldowns. =| Without cooldown reduction all of his abilities would have a cooldown of 10-13 sec.

Greater Quintessence of DesolationGreater Quintessence of Desolation
Greater Quintessence of Desolation- more ArP -> more damage.

For masteries I take a standard 21/9/0 for fighters. Renekton needs attack damage but he also needs armor because he goes all the time in fights.

On the beggining take Doran's Bldae. Better take the sword than shield, because it gives you more AD, and you need AD in early game so you will have more kills.

Next time when you are going to base, buy yourself and 2 , so you would heal yourself in early game. Next you should buy yourself . They will give you -15% cooldown reduction and move speed.

Now you need damage and health. Buy a than make a . Now you need Attack Speed, Crit Chance and Move Speed. Buy a and upgrade it into a . Ok... The next thing you should buy is a and after it buy a . and as your final item buy a .

In the meantime, if you wont have enough gold when you recall, just sell the

On the end buy a . Its a must for Renekton. It will give you armor, health and a higher HP regenerarion. It has a great Passive and great Active.

Ok, after you bought buy a for more damage, better crit chance and a higher crit damage.

Renekton is a great farmer. He can take entire minion waves alone. And the best part is that you can heal yourself on minions if you are low HP.
