Rengar , The Pridestalker. (UPDATE BUILD)

Hello , I am Tymlegend and I am new to making guides but as far i know , I always thought I could give it a shot for a champ i really like.

Upcoming :
Item pictures and Situational items.
Ingame pictures from rengar + skin + abilities.
Abilities pictures.

I am open to suggestions ;

So , here is my build for Rengar , The Pridestalker.

Guide Top

Summoner spells.

Flash , yeah flash is normal for alot of junglers, I like it for rengar, since he hasn't great Gap closers.

Smite , In my opinion Smite is a must.
Since rengar hasnt got really amazing output at level 1, u could have some trouble if u don't have smite.

Additional spell :

Ghost , For Rengar I think it is a good alternative for Flash.
At level 6 , when u walk in with ur ult + ghost u pick up an amazing speed , in which i almost
Consider it to be more surprising than flash.

For runes i picked :

Quintessences :

It offers an additional 7,7 Attack Damage.
This helps u to finish ur jungler faster and do a little more impact in ur ganks.

Marks :

This will give u 0.95 Attack damage per Rune.
So together with ur Attack Damage Quintessences , u receive an extra 12.4 Attack damage.

4 of these marks will give u an extra 6.6 Armor Penetration.
this will be usefull for the early ganks against some more tanky opponents.

Seals :

I just run with a full flat armor , These runes together give u 12.7 armor @ lvl 1.
I find it really usefull to be a little tanky from the start , so u don't take to much damage from ur jungle creeps.
It will also help u endure some more damage when u go gank on ad-heavy characters.

Glyps :

I also like to go with flat Magic resist from the start.
These Runes will give u 12 Magic resist.

This will allow u to gank mid more safely, the change that when u gank them they might use 1 or 2 moves on u , this can add up to some serious damage, and u don't want to return to ur jungle with low Hp.

For masteries i Picked ;


Although , if u put some points in Utility , u have longer buff durations , but on Rengar I don't find that neccesary.
With 21 points in Damage, u have enoug lifesteal and damage to help ur sustain and damage.

Items :

1st Item : As my starting item , I start with Boots + 3hp Potions.
This will allow u to come quicker to ur enemy.

After u have ur phage/sheen , get ur mercury treads/ninja tabi.

2nd item : Bonetooth necklace, This item will give u Extra 10 attack damage + 2 per level.
Everytime u get a kill or assist , u receive trohpies.

3 Trophies: +10 armor penetration + 5% cooldown reduction.

6 Trophies: +25 movement speed

9 Trophies: Rengar's leap gains 150 bonus range.

14 Trophies:
Thrill of the Hunt's duration is increased by 3 seconds. Additionally, Rengar's next ability used after activating Thrill of the Hunt generates 1 bonus Ferocity.

3th item : Phage, sheen, If u almost die after every gank, or having trouble in the jungle, u might want to pick up phage before sheen.
If u want some extra damage to clear ur jungle faster or for u ganks, u might want to pick up sheen first.
After u finished ur boots and giant's belt, i usually finish my trinityforce.

4th item :
Giant belt, this item give u some extra tankyness,it also allows u to stay in a fight for a longer time.
After Trinity force,u finish ur giant's belt into Warmog's armor.

5th item : Hexdrinker ;
Hexdrinker gives u some more sustain and damage, and an usufull shield.
Finish building Maw of Malmortius after Randuin's Omen.

6th item :
For my last item , i almost always pick up the Guardian Angel
This item will let u revive, so u have 2 times to fight or to escape.

Bonetooth necklace isn't added, because mobafire hasn't put it in yet.
But if u are picking up kills and assist u might want to get the bonetooth instead of hexdrinker.

As second Item , get ur boots , Don't finish boots, immediatly.

If the enemy is an Ap-heavy team , Pick the mercury's treads.
If the enemy is an AD-heavy team , Pick the Ninja Tabi.

As 3th Item , Get the Bonetooth Necklace , This item isn't show in this build , because i could'nt select it.
But get it as third , Dont get it if u dont like the stats , or if u losing.

As 4th Item i picked the : Trinity force.

U are most likely don't purchase it in 1 go .

So if ur having trouble with surviving or sustain , get the phage, if u just can't get the kills , Get the sheen. The sheen is pretty usefull and does alot damage , for that cost.

As a 5th item , u can get either Frozen Hammer , or Aegis of the Legios.
If ur team doesn't have a tanky character , u can get a warmogs, thornmail , or Force of nature.
But i prefer , Frozen mallet or Aegis of the Legion.

As my last item , i always get the Guardian Angle , this item is really nice , and let's u stay in the fight longer , or have more chance to succeed in committing.

Ganking , Focus and jungling Route and skill sequance.

If u want to gank , it is usefull to target the champ that stands close to a brush.
In this way ur passive will allow u to jump on them and instaburst them.

When ganking or in a fight.
Focus the ad/ap carry , with ur W

I usually jump in , and use my Battleroar, the instant that i am at an opponent to boost my Magic Resist and Armor.
Than i Spam My q and when they make an attempt to flee , i try to Bola As fast as I can.

When i hit level 6 , u can just run to warded areas with ur ult , and still have enough time to have max usuage for it.

After u jump in , or sneak behind in stealth , u just Hit the combo that i told before.

Jungling Route :

I usually start with Wraiths and than go redbuff.
With a little pull , this should be easy and quick to clear.
After that i usually gank or go do wolfes / golems after that , just go in for blue buff.
Ur W 15% heal will allow u to stay in the fight , even without smite.
