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 Riolu and this is my rengar. I started playing during the start of Season two, I was mostly laid back until the season was almost over afterwards I became highly competitive for most of S3, I've currently burnt out my competitive drive and chill in high mmr (GOLD+) normal drafts.
I started playing rengar about a years ago, He quickly became my favorite champion and kha'zix fell in as my secondary.
Pros / Cons
+ Incredibly high burst damage
+ Towers Don't exist
+ jump Passive
+ Bonetooth Necklace super cost effective
+ Sustain from Battle Meow
+ One shot squishes as early as the 12 minute mark
- Often gets camped
- Very squishy unless you build him with spirit visage and randiuins
- Have to build out of your way to get Max cdr (cdr boots)
- Not a doge, just a cat
-Hard time to carry, however you can smash and lead your team to victory
- Vision Ward and Oracle's Elixir are annoying

Recently theres been some confusion of what to max Q or E. *1st*
I would really suggest maxing whatever is good for your matchup:
For safe farming and poking: MAX E
for all inning, early roaming, bursting, and destroying early in general MAX Q
This start allow you to grab 5 health potions and a ward, really great for most matchups. Let's you shove with minor worry about the jungler, and also the regen makes up for the fact you have the LOWEST health regen in the game.
This is if you are for sure you can get a kill early, only go this if your certain or you'll hurt from it.
This start let's you start with 5 hp pots and is really great for tough ads for rengar up top
One of my favorite starts, allows you to do optimal damage and still have a good amount of health potions.
use this as a direct harass, when your enemies go in for cs Q to them for damage/stacks. Use to this to make them afraid of going in range of bushes.
This is pretty much your way of trading or all inning your enemies this bursts them if they're squishy Jump--->MidJump Bola----Double Q
While I can do the triple Q I have a hard time explaining it so here is a portion from Dowans Rengar guide which I highly suggest you check out!
The Legendary Triple Q
NOTE: I highly suggest reading the Ferocity Management Chapter before this one before attempting the Triple Q.
NOTE2: This is NOT a bug, this is a high skill cap combo that is legit. ADC stop QQing about it! It's here to stay.
Start at least 3 ferocity -> Thrill of the Hunt -> Empowered Savagery -> Chill for a couple seconds -> Unseen Predator -> Bola Strike -> Battle Roar -> Empowered Savagery -> Savagery
There are two way you can do triple Q but I will teach you the way I think is easiest. You have to start with at least 3 ferocity:
Say you started with 3. Thrill of the Hunt let it generate 2 ferocity. Then consume your 5 ferocity for Empowered Savagery. Remember, since savagery doesn't count as being used until you hit something, your ult is still active so you keep generating ferocity. You wait until you've generated 3 more ferocity. Your Q should last long enough for you to get it. Then, you leap on to your target. While in mid air, you also Bola Strike your opponent AND Battle Roar. So far, you've hit your opponent with the Empowered Savagery and Bola Strike and Battle Roar. You're sitting at 5 ferocity once again. So hit the enemy with another Empowered Savagery and, since you haven't used your normal Q yet, smack your opponent in the face with Savagery. The Idea is the same even if you start with 4 or 5 ferocity. Just gotta make sure you do double Empowered Savagery.
