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.
Hi i'm Michelle, i recently bought Renekton because I remember when i played against Renekton , anytime I harassed him, he just used Cull the Meek on the minions and half full hp without a problem. I thought he might have been hard to pick up but hes not! if you have a general sense of what his skills are and how to use them in a combo, he is devastating and easy! Oh and btw, switch the Greater Seal of Magic Resist and the Greater Glyph of Armor because i couldn't find warding in glyphs...
I like to play Renekton as a tanky dps champion. So the reason i choose 9 21 0 build is because you don't need much more but the Exhaust / Ignite buff in the offence tree + the armor penetration. I do like 21 in the defense because it makes Renekton just that much more of a pain when he uses his ult and when he builds hp. The utility tree isn't really needed unless you want extra movement speed but i find offence to be better.
I choose to go for Boots of Speed with 3 Health Potion because of the sustain and movement speed for easier harass, but if I'm up against a duo lane or something who hits hard early have I will use Cloth Armor with 5 Health Potion. Remember that these are preferences, you do not have to follow everything that I suggest.
This is what i mainly build on Renekton because it's tanky dps with a vast amount of hp and enough damage to kill a squishy easily.
This build will consist on more heavy hitters on the ability power side or simply to revive with a certain amount of hp due to guardians. Although you loose hp, you get a nice amount of extra armor and magic resist.
Farming is a really good thing to do with Renekton. you can harass and farm at the same time if you get better with him. 1st try to always last hit so you never push the wave. If the enemy is around the minions for some cs and you have your 3 main spells up just slice in, Cull the Meek, Ruthless Predator, from this point you can either auto attack him out of lane or you can dice out. Either or. Cull the Meek will heal you but usually push the lane so be sure to place wards down if needed :D.
For your skills you generally want to get Ruthless Predator and keep it there because if someones going to try to harass you just hit him and he is stunned for 1 - 1.5 seconds depending on your Fury . Next, you want to max out Cull the Meek as quick as possible for it is a good damage source and it is your sustain (don't forget to get Slice and Dice at lvl 4 for escapes). Max Ruthless Predator next at 13 grabbing your ult whenever possible. after you can grab slice / dice to max last for it is mainly to just catch up or run away.
