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 Guys! Please Read Before You Vote! You want to play Renek huh? Well this is my build and what i normal go as him there are different ways to playing him but I find this very effective! You may be thinking: "WHAT no brutalizer?!!?! No ionian's?!?!?!!? what is this sorcery!!!?!?
+ Strong Early and Mid
+ Super Strong Top
+ Good Farmer
+ Can get out of ganks easily
+ Awesome Ulty
+ No long ranger abilities
+ Hard to master
Runes are your own personal choice. These are the runes of my preference.[*] Greater Mark of Desolation [*] Greater Seal of Resilience [*] Greater Mark of Shielding I like these because I do not go Brutalizer and it gives me armor pen and great cool down reduction.
I am going 21 into offense 9 into defense and 0 into utility. I am doing this because I like the damage out put you get early game from the offensive perks. You can also go 9 21 0 into your masteries also. You may not see the 4 points going into the cool down reduction before but this is very nice and the whole .5 attack damage per level .5x18=9 which is pretty much nothing; the rest is pretty basic.
Farming is pretty simple on this champion you can either wait for the minions to kill themselves and auto attack them right before they do it to play passively or you can ability farm which is generally simple while use your [*] Cull the Meek to farm works well and the life steal from it with rage 50+ is very good. [*] Slice and Dice isnt the best for farming but it would do good damage if you use it twice through mage minions then cull the meek to get the farm. Your W isnt the best so I wont include that.
You can Either boots or cloth in beginning
[*] Boots of Speed good for getting away from ganks and good chase potential
[*] Cloth Armor and 5 [*] Health Potions really good sustain great vs heavy ad
[*] Doran Blade (all though they got nerfed health wise from 100-80 they are still groovy)
[*] Ninja Tabi will provide good armor and the passive that reduces auto attack damage is good against an ad top
[*] Phage has a good passive slow at 30% which will improve your chase skill
[*] Hexdrinker I will later finish [*] Frozen Mallet this will let you have great health/slows frozen plus your ability to chase will be amazing! Amazing I TELL YOU! I will go into
[*] Maw of Malmortius this will give you good magic resist and great attack damage plus its passive its so op.
[*] Guardians Angel this is a good item going into late game has great resistances and the passive come back to life with 750 health or something like that is good. ( I would have normally gone atmas back before the patch but the healh to attack damage ratio got nerfed from 2.0% to 1.5% just not really worth it anymore)
[*] Zeke's Herald good item I like it is kinda supporty good for ad carry and gives you ok life steal attack speed and decent cool down reduction which is always nice
[*] Last Whisper good item when it starts getting late game people are grabing armor you need to tear through it like a croc and good attack damage
As you can see I dont have A LOT of cool down reduction but I think I have enough CD with the masteries and the zekes has good cd also. I am mainly building a heavy bruiser build like renekton should be this and a good tanky jungle is just a monstrous combo.
[*] Force of Nature this is a good item if the enemy team ap is doing well.
[*] Sunfire Cape this item has good armor and attack damage resist. IF I were to go this I would pair it with a atma's even though it got nerfed especially if you follow the build to frozen mallet.
[*] Randuin's Omen this item has a gp5 item if you are doing bad in lane you can pick up heart of gold, also it has good armor and health regen with wardens mail plus the active of the item is just amazing to shut down that special someone( ad carry )
