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.
Masteries Set Changed Under Testing
Build 2 is the same build as build 1 but is has a different masteries set to see how Rengar can do more damage early game. I changed it a bit as a test build an it might be changed later on in time when I see if it just was a good build for a short time or good build like the first one. I tested the first one more and found that it is a better build for 3v3's unless you are versing Jax. Then you are screwed unless you get the early gank and the ealry kill, that will make you be able to get boots and 2 more potions. Then from there just keep up the jungling and pressure and you will win.
Masteries Test Completed
Hi everyone I have been busy with school and work so sorry if I didn't update my build for about 2 weeks. But I found out after 2 weeks of mass playing that Build 1 is a 3v3 build and my second build is a 5v5 build. So try it and give me some feed back. Thanks for viewing my build.
THIS IS A SHORT AND SIMPLE BUILD SO ENJOY
This build was done quick to give everyone the best build in the game as of late try it and see. It is a great build for starters and noobs but pros try it and see how easy it makes Rengar and see how it make you a better player.
HI EVERYONE THANKS FOR CHECKING OUT MY BUILD
HI everyone thanks so much for taking the time to look at my build and maybe even vote or comment on the build. I want everyone to comment their summoner name so that I can add you guys/girls so that I would be able to help and play with everyone who likes my build. It is free don't worry I just want there to be more good Rengar players because 1v1 against any other Rengar player is like giving me a free win so plz comment and I will be able to play with you guys most likely on weekends because between college and work time is short. So enjoy my build and other ideas and Rengar info, peace.
Rengar is a champ that needs to get kills early in the game. If you start off with an early 2 kills and survive until you get your BoneTooth Necklace you are basically set to win the game. Know if you are versing more AP champs then you can always change the boots to give you some more survivability. I have been playing Rengar for ever since he came out and I only saw about 2 or 3 good Rengar players so I hope that with this build it will make Rengar players better and get a feel of Rengar's ganking ability. The key to a strong Rengar is knowing when to attack and when to run. Rengar has a strong ult so take advantage and ult into a bush and wait for the enemy to chase and then not find you. From there stay still and wait until you get the fury charged up so you can basically one shoot the enemy with out them knowing WTF just happened. That is just a short intro to the great power of Rengar.
Farming is very important for Rengar because with out a good farm Rengar is not very good. Rengar is one of the few champs that needs lots of minion kills and champ kills to stay strong. But with his BoneTooth Necklace even if you don't get the kill but get an assist it will still benefit Rengar and make him stronger. The more time you have farming and killing neutral monsters the more powerful he becomes, now for all champs it is super important to get kills and farm but they could still become deadly strong with out like 160 minion kills, 4-5 champ kills, and 5-6 assists. But with Rengar those numbers are the numbers that you will have to put up to be a strong deadly force mid to late game. For me I feel that Rengar is one of the weakest early game champs compared to all of the new champs that are coming out, so farming is key to a victory with Rengar. So play with the build I made and see what you like more AD early or Health, and from that pick the items carefully. With Rengar there is no such thing as to much health potions, the more the better.
I didn't make a skill sequence for all of you to see because it is up to you the summoner, the player and how you like to play. I like stuns and hard hits so I like getting a lots of Q's and E's, not so much W's. But if you like his W then have more W's early, but I like going more E's so that I can slow my prey and destroy then faster then they would expect.
Team work is sooooooooooooo, sooooooo important with Rengar. You should always call mias and have your team makes call mias when you don't see the enemy even for just 2 seconds. This is good because Rengar is one of the best counter gankers in the game. He can just ult and find were everyone is and pick a target then pop he is died. Practice this with 3v3s and Co Op to master his ganking ability. Don't get pissed off when your team mate gets a kill get piss off when you don't get an assist, because every assist makes your BoneTooth Necklace stronger and stronger. I love 3v3's but a like 5v5's with friends because they know how I play and they know that I will need their help and communication to become the top player in the leader boards. The build I made is good for 3v3's and 5v5's but it is a lot better in 5v5's because you will have more time to LV up and farm your *** off.
The runes that I picked are made to make Rengar more powerful mid to late game. But is also made to have a good tanky/AD champ early in fights. If you plan to be solo top then it is a great build but if you plan on jungling then you should focus more one life steal early and AD rather then the super early Frozen mallet. The runes are made for a powerful mid game Rengar that will force the enemy to surrender, but the build will make you strong early game. This build took me like 3 to 4 days to master but it will be challenging for many when you will face AP champs. AP champs hurt Rengar a lot so try to focus then first and then deal you heavy damage to the tank because you are basically a super strong AD Tank.
I would say don't try this one ranked play until you are 100% ready and you have mastered all his powers. Rengar is a champ that brings fear in other champs eyes so take that to your advantage and also they're not many good Rengar players in LOL so use that to make the enemy feel like they are better and then massacre them. I am not a Pro if I was I wouldn't give out this info, I am a normal LOL player who likes to play other games like COD,SC2,D3,Madden 13, and many more so I don't have the time to practice and get good enough to play Ranked. I plan on playing Ranked matches later in my LOL career so don't hate me because I am not Ranked but I most likely would be a good Ranked player do the fact that my Rengar build is surprisingly good in both 3v3 and 5v5. So thanks for everything and when I get Ranked I will post some more builds and a Warwick build is coming soon.
