Skill Usage

Full AD Runes, Attack Masteries and charging 4 Ferocity to use Savagery.png Savagery and then Empowered Savagery on Rengar was notorious for having gained First Blood before rework.
Unseen Predator.png Unseen Predator allows you to gank unexpectedly. Use Thrill of the Hunt in order to not be seen across the map as you move towards your gank or save it for chasing if you think the target can escape with Flash and/or stealth or dash ability.
Be careful with this as opponents will know if they are revealed.
Unseen Predator allows RengarSquare.png Rengar to lunge to his enemies while stealthed, using his ultimate. Use this to your advantage and use Thrill of the Hunt.png Thrill of the Hunt combined with Savagery.png Savagery for an exceptionally well executed combo in rapid succession, then slow the enemy using your Bola Strike.
RengarSquare.png Rengar can hop over walls using Unseen Predator. Place a ward next to a jungle camp and get inside a brush over the wall, then simply attack the monsters. However, make sure they're inside your circle. Also, when your Bonetooth Necklace reaches 9 Trophies, use the extra range on your passive to make this wall-hopping easier.
This is a great tactic for stealing epic monsters when counter jungling or killing the enemy jungler.
Maxing Savagery first gives you a little bit of single targeted damage and burst.
Before rework some might have argued that Savagery.png Savagery was a one-point wonder skill, as its scaling was based on Rengar's total attack damage and thus remained powerful even at Rank 1, having given good AS bonus.
Rengar is a great jungler as his Empowered Battle Roar heals him for a flat amount of his health. This allows him for excellent survivability both in lanes and jungles.
When jungling alternate between Empowered Battle Roar and Empowered Savagery.
The sustain of Empowered Savagery with a Vampiric Scepter is better than Empowered Battle Roar if you can do full damage with the stacked attack speed. Use this to your advantage to get faster clear times, and get life back.
Maxing Battle Roar first gives you a good burst of AoE damage and a high defense boost for a few seconds. Consider it over maxing Savagery, when jungling or playing defensively.
Use Rengar's Empowered Bola Strike.png Empowered Bola Strike in order to stop enemies from running away.
Thrill of the Hunt is a decent tool for escaping ganks and other nasty situations. However consider that the stealth can be delayed to up to 3 seconds when attacked and enemies will know when you are within 1000 range of them.
RengarSquare.png Rengar can use his ultimate in order to see invisible champions, such as Shaco, Twitch, Evelynn, or another Rengar.
When you cast Thrill of the Hunt RengarSquare.png Rengar does not immediately turn invisible but after about a 1 second delay. So keep this in mind while you are in battle.
RengarSquare.png Rengar's Thrill of the Hunt allows him to scout as it reveals enemy champions in a huge radius. This can allow his team to catch enemy champions hiding in bushes, or to prevent an ambush by the enemy hiding in bushes. This can also prevent enemy champions juking you or your allies using the fog of war or bushes.
When ganking a lane warded with Sight Ward item.png Sight Ward, use Thrill of the Hunt outside of the ward's range.
Item/skill usage ends Thrill of the Hunt, but with the half second delay RengarSquare.png Rengar can still leap. This is useful to finish off almost dead champions with Ravenous Hydra or Blade of the Ruined King and then leap to another target.
Using Thrill of the Hunt with 5 Ferocity charges can lead to an overwhelming burst of damage, as he can leave stealth with an empowered skill, use his 3 non-empowered skills in quick succession on his target and then already use another empowered skill because of the Ferocity gain after leaving stealth.
RengarSquare.png Rengar can cast Bola Strike and Empowered Bola Strike when he's leaping mid-air with Unseen Predator. Therefore, casting Thrill of the Hunt.png Thrill of the Hunt first, leaping on an enemy champion with Unseen Predator then using Empowered Bola Strike mid-air almost guarantees a snare, then following Bola Strike for further slow. It is extremely effective when ganking and is very easy for your teammates to deal more damage for a kill.

Skill Usage ( Jungling)

Jungle Rengar is one of the best CC bursters allowing the player to Double Snare:
With 5 or 4 stacks of Ferocity, engage the enemy with Thrill of the Hunt.
Use either Empowered Savagery for burst damage or Empowered Bola Strike for superior CC lockdown during or shortly after leaping.
Then, spam abilities to reach 5 Ferocity stacks again in which time you can Bola Strike.png Bola Strike to slow them for a ton, or use Savagery for further damage.
Once 5 Ferocity stacks has been reached again (should be about 2 to 4 seconds to regain 5 stacks) use Empowered Bola Strike to Snare them again, or Empowered Savagery for more damage.
After level 6 it should be ok to take 1 or 3 turret hits when ganking for a lane to secure a kill.
This combo is an effective lockdown tactic, which most champions would find escaping difficult (unless you miss the skillshots). This double Empowered Bola Strike snare combo is mostly inescapable unless they have two or more flash/dash abilities.
Make sure your lane partner(s) is there to deal the damage or alternatively you deal the damage while they focus CC abilities.
