Hello! and welcome to my Rengar build. This is my first build on MobaFire, so constructive criticism would be really helpful for me to help make this build better, also, please don't mark down this build for no reason, put it in the comments so i can try to fix it! but enough of my blabbering, on with the build!
Rengar is a melee champion (who i use as a solo or duo top) who excels in bursting and assassinating champions before they know what happened. one of his really good perks is that he has no mana, so you never have to recall because of a lack of mana.
Lore Of The Pridestalker
On every wall of his den, the trophy hunter Rengar mounts the heads, horns, claws, and fangs of the most lethal creatures in Valoran. Though his collection is extensive, he remains unsatisfied, tirelessly seeking greater game. He takes time with every kill, studying his prey, learning, and preparing himself for the next encounter with the one monster he never managed to defeat.
Rengar never knew his real parents, but was raised by a human who was revered as a legendary hunter. He was an ideal pupil, intently absorbing the lessons of his father, and improving them with his uncanny feral instincts. Before his mane had fully grown, Rengar set off on his own and claimed a wide territory for himself. Along its perimeter, he mounted the skulls of his slain prey - a warning to would-be aggressors. He thought undisputed reign of a region would fulfill him, but instead, he grew restless. No beasts in his domain proved challenging prey, and without formidable adversaries to push his limits, Rengar's spirit waned. He feared that no worthwhile game remained, that he would never again feel the thrill of the hunt. Just when things seemed their bleakest, he encountered the monster. It was a disturbing, alien thing, distinctly out of place in his world. It bore huge scything claws and devoured any animal that strayed across its path. Overzealous at the prospect of a challenge, Rengar ambushed the monster in haste. It far outclassed anything he'd hunted before. Their fight was savage, and each suffered crippling wounds. Rengar lost an eye, but the most grievous blow was to his pride. He had never before failed to make the kill. Worse yet, the severity of his injuries forced him to retreat. Over the following days, he hovered on the threshold between life and death. He was wracked with pain, but beneath it, he felt a glimmer of joy. The hunt was on. If such powerful beings existed in the world, he would find them, and stack their heads high. The monster, however, was a kill he wanted to savor. On his den's largest wall, he reserves a space for the beast's head, a trophy he swears will one day be the centerpiece of his collection.
"Prey on the weak and you will survive, prey on the strong and you will live." -Rengar
Personally, i use 21-9-0. you can modify that to your liking. but you should lean to a more offensive tree, since Rengar is an offensive character. you want to have Veteran's Scars though, i couldn't tell you how many times i have escaped death with less that 30 health, and if you wouldn't of had that mastery, well do the math. i also like to have some life steal because you won't get any items for that until late game, so that tiny bit always helps.
This is your passive, and an awesome one at that. whenever you are in brush or stealthed and you use your basic attack, you get increased attack range and you will pounce on an enemy. additionally, every time you use an ability, you gain one point of ferocity. once you have five ferocity, your Q, W, and E gain bonus effects.
(That feint ring around Rengar is the range of his leap)
Savagery is the meat and bones of Rengar. once active, the next basic attack does bonus damage and increases your attack speed for three seconds. always get this skill first for that bonus attack damage.
This is what makes Rengar a hunter, Savagery deals additional damage equal to 100% of Rengar's attack damage, and the Attack Speed bonus is doubled. almost always use this when fighting an enemy champion, you can take out a champion easily with two ferocity if you pounce on them, (preferably) then Q,W,E then your full Q.
Items... what would champions be without them? you could be a pro at LoL, but if you choose items that don't match your champions characteristics, you wont be effective. Rengar is a champion that needs the right items to be effective as a hunter. if you play Summoner's Rift you wont have the extra gold in the beginning of the match. "i put the Summoner's Rift items in blue"
When the game begins, purchase Boots of Speed and a Long Sword OR Boots of Speed and three Health Potions. i buy the Boots of Speed for that early game movement speed, it will also build into the Boots of Swiftness. i buy the Long Sword for early game damage and because it is a component for Phage.
