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.
Reign of Anger
Your passive, gives you Fury generation. When you have 50 fury, it boosts the skill you use next (except ulti)...
Cull the Meek
Very good AoE skill, makes dmg+heals you and it generates fury very well...It is used for harassment early in the game.
Deals a strong portion of dmg and stuns the target. The Devs made this skill to be used with fury, but other skills got boosted with the latest patch too.
Slice and Dice
Can be used in many ways(Jumping to target, Dmging it, etc.). When used with fury, it will lower targets armor.
Your ULTIMATE! Makes you look HUGE and give you HP and a portion of MDmg to your enemies. It also generates fury (5 per second).
For runes I choose this setup:
Greater Mark of Desolationx9
Greater Seal of Evasionx9(work very nice with defense mastery - evasion)
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reductionx9
Greater Quintessence of Desolationx3
This will allow you to take kills and hold lane all time. If you prefer, you can take some flat HP and MR per lvl.
Boots 3 pot is a truely awesome start on ren, as you get that early move speed you need to establish lane dominance, as well as 3 potions for strong sustain.
Standard items for starting. When you have farmed enough or got a kill, and you have 1100 gold, recall and buy Sight Ward and maybe some health potions if you haven't used them all.
Good, if you have these items and you haven't died yet, farm a bit or try to get some kills. After doing so, recall and buy .Perfect! now you have massive lifesteal and a permanent ward.
Some aromr pen for your dmg, also good CDR
Now you need some dmg, you will buy or you can skip for CDR( if you have gold )
Good item for slowing, having HP and doing some dmg more.
Armor, HP and scales perfectly with your ultimate.
Time for some attack speed, magic resist and bonus dmg on hits
Also u can use
Just get this after the Wit's End( or other optional).
Now finish with for extra slow,dmg and health.
5. Laning phase
There is an important thing I would like to mention. As a melee dps carry, you need to farm well during the laning phase. The bad thing that I saw at many players is that as soon as they get low on HP, they recall back to base loosing precious EXP and gold. Good thing about Renekton is that he can stay in the lane at low HP. If you play with my skill build you can heal yourself very well. Stay in the EXP range, and just out of the range for mages and champs like Jax and Xin Zhao. Don't attack minions, wait for them to come to your turret, get 50 fury and use Cull the Meek on them. 2-3 times like that and you will get good HP. Use this as much as possible.
Good laning partners for Renekton are pretty much champions with CCs. If your lane enemies are too scared and run away as soon as u come close, your Ruthless Predator just won't be enough for the kill.
6. Harassment during laning phase
1. Jump in with Slice and Dice, be sure to hit a least one minion to get Dice ready to use.
2. If there is only 1 champion ahead of you, use Ruthless Predator on him and then Cull the Meek. If there are 2 champions ahead, just use Cull the Meek.
3. Jump out with Slice and Dice (Dice part of the skill)
When basic minion killer combo is to use Slice and Dice to harass them, go in the middle between melee and caster minions, use Cull the Meek and then Slice and Dice (Dice part) to make more dmg. With this you will easily kill minions and push while enemies are dead or busy with your teammates.
8. Turret dive
The thing I love to do and it's easy to do with Renekton, tnx to Slice and Dice. When you see low HP enemies chillin' by the turret, run into them or Slice and Dice to them, stun with Ruthless Predator, then Cull the Meek. If you're low HP or there are two enemies, you can always use Dominus for easier killing and tanking the turret...
9. Champions I don't rly like for enemies
Kassadin: He can blink away a lot, slow you and run like hell >.>
Vladimir: You can't rly kill Vlad on 1v1 if he knows what he is doing, so that becomes annoying for you...
Rammus: Every good played Rammus is bad Rammus for you, since he can watch you attacking him with your physical
dmg and just say "That tickles" and then use skill and give you back the dmg >.>
Warwick(Lanewick): You need some skill to beat this beast.
If you comment, please leave some constructive feedback for me to improve this build. Thx ^^
