Introduction (plz read)

Welcome to my Rengar guide!! This guide will help you (at least i hope so) to become a better Rengar player. Rengar is an very good solotop and/or jungler. He uses unique resource called Ferocity wich after 5 abilities grants him an extra effect on one of his abilities. He hunt's and collect's Champions heads wich count as trophies on his unique item called Bonetooth Necklace wich grant's him diffrent powers.

This is my first guide on any champion so i will try to update and upgrade my guide. Plz let me know what you liked about it and what not. And keep in mind this is only my opinion not the best guide that is out there. I did this guide myself so sorry for any mistakes. Plz like my guide if you liked it and plz let me know why you disliked my guide so i can improve.

Skill Sequence

So this is an very interesting part of my build, because most of you will max Savagery first and then Bola Strike and Battle Roar. But i find it most effective to max out Battle Roar first for nice mix of DMG and sustain. Then i max out Savagery or Bola Strike it's just down to you. Realy try this out and you will see that it will help you get more kills and less death's. I went like 4/6/13 when i maxed out Savagery first and now i always get around 14/3/16

For runes i take Greater Mark of Attack Damage because i find it the best for Rengar. Because he need's DMG as assassin and fighter. Seal of Armor will help you as it gives you little bit of armor that you need against AD carry's. The same goes for Glyph of Magic Resist for AP carry's. Quintessence of Attack Damage will do the same job as the Mark.

Guide Top


I have 21/9/0 masteries focusing on DMG in offence and armor and health in defance.
Because he is an assassin and fighter who's job is to get the squishy targets first and he needs DMG for it and armor to get out alive.

Summoner's Wrath will boost your Ignite, Exhaust and Ghost

Brute Force will give you some DMG.

Alacrity will give you some attack speed.

Weapon Expertise will give you armor penetration.

Deadliness will give you Att. speed per Lvl.

Vampirism will give you 1% life steal.

Sunder gives you some more armor penetration.

Executioner will give you some bonus to low HP targets.

Two points in Resistance will give you some Magic resist.

Two points in Hardiness will give you some extra armor.

Durability will give you health per lvl.

Veteran's Scars will give you bonus 30 health.

So your core Build should be:
Bonetooth Necklace

Against Heavy AP team you can buy Maw of Malmortius instead of The Bloodthirster and Wit's End instead of The Black Cleaver.

Against Heavy AD team buy Sunfire Cape instead of The Black Cleaver. Other things should stay the same.

Against Tanky Team buy Last Whisper instead of The Black Cleaver.

NOTE: if you have truble geting kills and assists think about selling Bonetooth Necklace and buying one of the item's below!!


is a good all around item but i don't find it VERY usefull. You can allways use it it will do more good than bad.

is a good item on Rengar because it giver you CDR, Armor penetration and attack speed. Buy it if you need CDR.

Zeke's Herald buy only if no one on your team has it. It gives you health and cooldown reduction and it gives your team attack speed.

you can buy it if you REALLY need health. Otherwise i don't find it that useful.

is also an good item for AP team, it gives you CDR and increases health regeneration.

is item you can buy against tanky team because it gives you Armor penetration and attack speed.

is item you should buy against heavy AD team for armor and the little DMG is returned to the target.

is great item for Rengar you can put it in your build instead of [Randuin's Omen]. Its good because it gives you armor and 750 health when you die.

You should also consider buying for AD team

Summoner Spells

For Summoner Spells i choose ] and . I found them the best on most of the champions and Rengar is not an exception. Ignite will give you a little bit of magic DMG for that first blood or it will just help you do some extra bit of DMG. Flash is realy self explanatory. Use it to flash in or out of combat.

Other options are:
it gives you speed to get away or to chase an enemy through the jungle. I find it best when jungeling.

slows enemy's attack speed and movement speed. It's great spell for 1v1 combat.

this spell will give you instant health for more sustain and to surprise your enemy's when they think they had killed you.

use it for jungling. It's speeds up your jungling ALOT.

You can use but its not as good:

use it to get to other lanes quickly and help out.

this spell will boost your attack speed but you have ingame shop for that.

And plz for the love of god don't bother with other spells!
