Through this guide I'll point out some tips for Renekton, what to do and what not to do, while keeping it short and to the point

In regards to runes, Marks = Attack damage, try to get some attack speed and the rest is up to you

These are the item purchase order I use and have obtained games of 20/3/8 and maintain games like that

On spawn, purchase Vampiric Scepter, then purchase Ionion boots - if you cannot buy it in fool, buy boots of speed and then upgrade it to ionion boots. Then you should buy The Brutalizer, this lowers your cooldowns along with Ionion. Using the Scepter from before, purchase a blood thirster, then black cleaver, then frozen mallet

How to use him

Starting off, don't go mid. Renekton is squishy early game and you need a partner to fall back on.

Once at the lane, you and your partner should hide in the bush, wait for the enemy and attack. If he gets away, no problem, he'll recall and it'll be 2v1. START FARMING. Go into a bunch of minions and hit Q to get some HP back all the while killing minions. Remember, using Q on Champions gives you 300% health back.

If your in range of an enemy and your partner is with you, hit W. W has about a 5-6 second timeframe where after you've hit W, you can still use it. Hit W then hit the enemy, you hit him 2 times with your attack damage + a little more, and if you have over 50 fury, you'll hit him 3 times. At this point if hes getting away, use your Exhaust and Ignite him, Hit Q and use E to get close to him. Once W is back, W him again and he should be dead by this time.

If your being ganked, RUN. If you can't get away, use Renek's E (Slice 'n Dice) to teleport through walls. Make sure you can make the teleport though, because if you fail, you'll die for sure. Also, in teambattles, use your ultimate, it deals damage passively to nearby enemies and gives you a HP Boost so you can last longer. It also makes you bigger and that intimidates the enemy.

If your low on health and you don't want to leave your lane, go into ALOT of minions and hit Q, at maxed Q you should be getting 170-250HP back. If you want even more, hit a champion with it, but thats too risky.

Use your W to stun and kill, and E to catchup and runaway.
