Threats to Renekton with this build
|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.|
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.
So sorry about the late update I had to test the waters with season 7 to make sure you guys had a accurate guide for
Also sorry about the match ups they have changed pretty drastically as time has gone by and I have limited experience dealing with many champs this season will gladly take any advise or tips if any have learned more recently how well renekton is doing in certain match ups.
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
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
Good at split pushing
Can stay in lane longer due to using rage and not mana
Your team fight power isn't great like Darius who can help his team get kills
Late game kill power lost due to others catching up to you
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 has changed sense season 6 and now has an interesting bonus to the first attack you hit with on an enemy champ so trading is more suggested well using it.
To provide you with early life steal so you can stay in lane longer
This has also changed now with a bonus 5% dmg with a 2.5% more dmg taken this is still really good and mixed with [icon=fresh blood size=20
This is where things changed instead of going the rest of the way down ferocity tree we go down the resolve.
This is to cover for the weakness that double edged sword now with the 2.5 more dmg taken to give you more resistances to make up for the loss.
Now don't underestimate this mastery it is so helpful especially early game for one reason when you dive the enemy champ the minions are going to be hammering you and 2 less dmg per auto off them means the difference between life and death by the minions for that kill.
This is also designed to help make up for any weakness with taking hits early game to make up for enemy penetrations to you so you can last longer.
This helps against that pesky crowd control that the enemy will use when you try all in them.
Now this is the big change because it provides such a nice shield for all of your trades the big thing to it is you NEED to land your w. The reason being it provides a nice shield to help trade massively mix with renekton's innate sustain making him a monster.
Patch 6.15 + Ability combos
Renekton this patch has gotten quite a surprising change to his ult. He now gains 20 rage when he ults allowing for more surprising plays.
