Threats to Renekton with this build

Low

Show all
Threat Champion Notes
3
Tryndamere Play smart you out trade him when he has no rage. Don't dive when he hits 6 unless you know he doesn't have ult. This is generally a fairly easy match up.
3
Malphite This is simple you out farm him hard. Build Black Cleaver and this should be no problem.
3
Teemo This little demon is easy to beat. Step one close in on him step two out trade him step three kill him under tower he won't be able to stop you if you get any bit of a lead. Oh an important note to mention he can make you w miss so to avoid this auto first till the blind is gone then proceed with your attack his blind however doesn't effect renekton q

Welcome to my guide

Hi my summoner name is Dracofirestar this is my first guide and it most certainly could use improvement so comment as often as possible. I will be adding more and more match ups so just comment a match up and I will try and get to it.

Renekton

Why you choose

He is a high base damage ad bruiser that out trades and has high harass in lane.
His early game is one of the best in game and very few skilled at playing Renekton will have problems in his match ups for one reason they are generally who knows their champ better and when to do things. Renekton is not item based however he has very clear power spikes when he gets certain items. For instance Ravenous Hydra is a good example of an item that helps Renekton in every way

Pros / Cons

PROS
High burst early game
Can escape Slice and Dice
Reign of Anger empowered abilities provide a surprise to your opponents
Innate Sustain due to Cull the Meek
Great early game duelist

CONS
Your team fight power isn't great like Darius who can help his team get kills
Easily kited
Late game kill power lost due to others catching up to you

Items


----
This item synergies well with Renekton by giving him a decent power spike that can be push through early game

----
This item allows Renekton to handle tanks like Malphite who are just generally tanky and don't seem to take damage. Because of its passive that allows you to get armor pen of which combined with Ruthless Predator applies multiple times.

----
This allows Renekton to bridge the gap between enemies for Renekton this coupled with Renektons initial move speed allows him to keep on his enemies and get secure the kill.

----
This item synergies with Renekton for a couple reasons 1st it has quite a nice mr for the item. 2nd it synergies with the Ravenous Hydra that is built on Renekton and 3rd Renekton's Cull the Meek synergies as well.

This is used just to make sure you can cs a little better and hit your lane opponent more often.

This is to provide more damage so you can hurt your enemy laner early game and gain a lead.

to provide you with early life steal so you can stay in lane longer

used to provide extra damage of a successful w

Armor pen for dealing with those top lane tanks

Your w provides multiple stacks and more ad. This is also better against tank champs because you will have more damage earlier in the game

More damage for your early game

more damage due to being a solo lane. This helps in the long run due to the fact you can allow your jungler to help other lanes because you can handle your by yourself

To secure those executes on your laner after harassing him down easier

To reap the benefit of killing your enemy and allow yourself to survive a gank and potentially turn it around for a double kill
