Welcome. This is a guide to unleash the true power of Rengar's triple Q. ( Savagery)
What is Triple Q and how do I Use it?
Rengar's triple q is where you use Savagery three times in a row. To do this, you must have 4 furiosity counters on Rengar. When you attack a target, hit Q once to get your furiosity full, then hit R to activate Thrill of the Hunt and hit Q right after that to empty your furiosity. Your Thrill of the Hunt will refill it again and it will allow you to use Q again.
As Rengar you are probably going either jungle or top lane. This guided if for top lane Rengar in case you didn't know. The items in this build are meant for constant critical damage. At the start of the game you should just buy what's in the recomended list. Then I would build Ravenous Hydra. This will give you the early sustain with the Vampiric Scepter and the rake with the Tiamat. Then Ravenous Hydra will give you the extra AD. Next is Trinity Force. Not really going to go into too much detail with it, it's just awesome. Next in the build is Infinity Edge. Infinity Edge is to get the mid game critical strike chance and to work with the next item in the build, Sword of the Divine. Now Sword of the Divine isn't used very often because it usually doesn't work with most champions. However, it works perfectly with Rengar and his q Savagery. I'll talk about strategy later. Next you have Statikk Shiv. This item also works well with Sword of the Divine because of its passive. I'll talk about it in the strategy chapter. And for defense and more sustain, you have Guardian Angel.
Now let's talk about strategies with the build and how everything will (or at least should) correlate together. The key item in the build is Sword of the Divine. It's activated ability makes it two where the next three attacks you use will automatically crit within the next three seconds. This is very good with Rengar's Q, Savagery considering that it deals bonus damage with your next basic attack. If you plan it out right, you can activate Sword of the Divine when you have four furosity and hit q to get full furiosity and a crit on a basic attack that has bonus damage and do it again for a second time and hit ult for Rengar's Thrill of the Hunt to fill your furosity and use your q again to get the third crit with the extra damage. How Sword of the Divine works with the rest of the build is important too. Ravenous Hydra works will with Sword of the Divine because it deals area damage based upon your attack damage. Unfortunately, Ravenous Hydra's passive doesn't do more damage whenever you crit, but it is still a really good item for farming and in team fights. Infinity Edge greatly increases your crit damage and Statikk Shiv's passive will crit once if it's charged along along with your triple crit from Sword of the Divine, along with giving you extra attack speed. The Guardian Angel is good for when you get in a jam with an enemy champion since it gives you the extra chance to kill them.
I still need to learn what kind of runes work best with this build for Rengar. The ones I have up there were kind of guessed on, so they are kind of random. If you can help me with what runes I need to put on their that would be greatly appreciated.
The ability sequence is what I personally use in my games. It works for me really well, but you may have your own personal preference on how you like to do things.
Haven't gotten any questions yet so people comment your questions and I'll be glad to answer them.
This is all I have to say for now. Tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions on how I could make this guide better, feel free to comment what you have in mind. And if you also play Teemo, I have builds for that too. Some of them are better than others.
