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.
NOTE: Most of the time this will end up as an mid to end game build. This means you really have to play it cautious at the beggining.
Now, Continue on to the actual build guide! :)
So I've read a couple of these guides for Renekton, and tried most of them. All were good, but in real matches with real-time situations where I had to decide on stuff; I was pretty clueless as to what I should do. In one game my team was failing (courtesy of Riot's matchmaking) and I really didn't feel like losing. I changed my build from more of a tank/DPS buildset to a Lifesteal/DPS set. I got ganked by 3 of the the enemies players and killed them all. We ended up winning that game, and I was thoroughly surprised at how well the lifestealing worked. So, I went off to try it again and with much success I got my first quadra kill, and it could have been a penta kill had the fifth player not been on death timer. So all and all, this build works.
All right, for items as I said in the introduction you will be wanting lifestaling. So we start off with a Doran's Sword to have damage + health and some minor lifestealing. Unfortunately due to the patch, we can't get a health potion, but that's why we have Cull of The Meek. You can survive pretty long in your lane with just that, but if you die or have a chance to you'll want to get the Ionian Boots of Lucidity. If you die early on and have the money, go ahead and get the boots of speed. I usually go back every now and then and build up to get The Brutalizer for extra cooldown reduction. After that build up to get your first major lifestealing item, Stark's Fervor. This is nice to get before The Bloodthirster because it gives both you and your team an advantage, plus some nice bonus attack speed. After this point, you should be racking up some major kills, and have a really nice inflow of cash. So, you want to get a Vampiric Scepter for extra lifesteal and get The Black Cleaver to really hit hard on the enemies. You should be able to really kill them fast by now, and should get The Bloodthirster for extra lifesteal + damage. If your inflow really isn't that great, go ahead and stick with the Bilgewater Cutlass, which has some nice added damage and lifesteal. If you're really reaping in the cash, go ahead and get your Hextech Gunblade, as you get a bunch of bonus stats for that. With this complete you can easily withstand tough ganks with your massive health regen.
To open off you're going to want to go into Cull of The Meek first because it's a nice substitute for the no health potion. You can gather the minions nearby after getting your fury up and heal nearly half your health with one swipe. Later in the game you can one hit all the minions without even needing fury. For your second level go with Slice and Dice because it really works with Cull of The Meek. You slice in, use Cull, then dice back out. It's nice even when you have low health because most opponents won't be able to react fast enough if you do it really quick. Go with Ruthless Predator next, then go on ahead and max Cull for maximum self healing. After that you get your Ruthless Predator maxed out for stun and damage. Then you finish off with Slice and Dice for some nice bonus damage. Also, use Slice and Dice to your advantage in a 1 on 1 fight. You can Slice through them then Dice back through for extra damage.
Pros / Cons
1. A TON of self-healing.
2. Can survive team fights, and come out on top with damage.
3. High damage, and high survivability.
1. Not much health, so if you're stunned or blinded you have to rely on Cull of The Meek.
2. Silences completely own Renekton, but lifesteal can help you survive this.
