Introduction

Hello everyone my name is Doubledoughnut and Renekton is the only reason I began playing league of legends, personally I like brawling with people and Renekton is one of the best at doing just that. Renekton can dish out a good amounts of damage and provide a stun for your team. His kit involves AOE AD, Stun, and a huge health boost/AOE magic damage. Once you get a good grasp on how to play Renekton he becomes really fun and he is never considered a bad pick in normal/ranked game play.

Masteries

Renekton will need defense to back up his damage, this build will provide you with the sustain needed to exchange with your lane opponent and potentially bully them out of lane to help you start snowballing.

The offensive tree will provide a nice damage boost and cooldown reduction to help harass your enemy.

The Defensive tree will provide a good health bonus along with reducing slows and crowd control effects.

Skill Sequence

Renekton will need his (W) Ruthless Predator first to harass his lane opponent and get extra attacks off while the enemy is stunned but don't max this first.

Grab your (E) Slice and Dice second this allows you to engage the enemy so that you can harass with your (W) Ruthless Predator and (Q) Cull the Meek max Slice and Dice second.

Your main ability (Q) Cull the Meek gives renekton good AOE damage and sustain just make sure to use it around a group of creeps/heros as often as possible to get as much life back as possible, max this first.

Renektons Ultimate (R) Dominus gives you a huge health bonus and good AOE magic damage that ticks per second, make sure to use this at the right time or to help avoid death.

Summoner Spells


Flash provides an escape, use it wisely as the CD takes 5 minutes. Helps secure kills or chase fleeing opponents

Ignite when you need to finish off an opponent whose low and provides healing reduction effects

Ghost helps you close the gap on your opponent or provides you with an escape to get away

Teleport Provides your team with global pressure and gives you a chance at ganks or start a good fight

Warding








The Red Dots are the most important spots to keep covered.

The Yellow Dot is also good if their jungle/mid keeps coming from that direction or locating jungle invasions.

Item Selection

Ravenous hydra Adds AOE damage to auto attacks, Lifesteal, and Attack Damage This item really helps dish out extra damage to the enemy team when fights break out. You get a passive AOE effect as well as a active AOE ability. Gives a percentage of lifesteal on top of some health regeneration.

Black Cleaver Gives Cooldown Reduction, Health, Attack Damage, and Armor Penetration grabbing this item will give you more sustain on top of damage since your getting lower cooldowns on your abilities with better armor shred. This is definitely a must grab for renekton since you get a lot of benefits from it.

Maw of Malmortius Increased Magic Resist, Absorb Magic Damage passive, and Attack Damage this item will give you the offense you need against magic dealers. The magic shield allows you to absorb a huge amount of damage that would otherwise kill you, and provide added Attack Damage the lower your health goes.

Frozen Mallet Increased Health, Passive Slow Effect, Attack Damage this item can help slow down opponents and potentially catch them fleeing. Adds 700 bonus health with a little attack damage bonus of +30. Very good item and adds more utility as well as sustain to renekton which can help your team in a great way.

Sunfire Cape Increased Armor, Health, and Passive AOE damage this item is really good combined with your ultimate Dominus to add even more AOE damage to the opposing team. Adds 450 bonus health, 45 armor, and 40 magic damage to nearby opponents.

Spirit Visage Increased Magic Resist, Health, Health Regeneration, and Cooldown Reduction this item is the first thing you want to build if your going up against a magic dealer. Perfect item for renekton since it gives cooldown reduction, health, defensive stats, and a 20% increase to all healing effects.

Randuin's Omen Increased Armor, Health, Slows attackers, and gives Active Slow this item is really good against Attack Damage since they become slowed every time they attack you. Using the active on this item can help catch up or start team fights that you want.


Thornmail Increased Armor, Returns a percentage of Attack Damage to enemy this is a really good buy if your going against an all Attack Damage team. You get a huge amount of armor as well as 30% of the damage taken returned to the enemy.

Banshee's Veil Increased Magic Resist, Health, and gives a Magic Shield this item is really good against magic since you can absorb 1 spell every 25 seconds, and also get increased health regeneration when in combat for 10 seconds.

Mercury's Treads Increased Magic Resist, Movement, and Reduces Crowd Control Effects these are the best boots to buy unless your going against an all Attack Damage team.

Ninja Tabi Increased Armor, Movement, and Blocks Attack Damage this is a good buy if your laning against a Attack Damage champion or an all Attack Damage team.

Team Fights

When a fight breaks out try to position yourself around as many enemies as possible to dish out the highest AOE damage with Cull the Meek and Dominus. Slice and Dice in and lock up the priority targets with Ruthless Predator. Continue pounding on their face until nobody is left or they start running like cowards.
