21 / 6 / 3 We want to hurt.
Q. "Why so much offense when building tanky Renekton?" - Noob Softy
A. Because he's freaking RENEKTON. And if our starting item is going to be then we don't have to worry too much about being overly tanky during laning. We gotta buss'sum heads. We need those early kills for $$$.
Now i meant what i said about having to be a badass when playing Ren with this build. You have to have the skewls. If you've never played Ren before and you worked this build and failed don't go on comments all like, "Dude this build is the worst! I kept feeding and getting pounded so hard. I'm sad now."
Either skill up a bit and try again or go back to playing Tryndamere. (I keed) Cuz Renekton don't play dat. Hes a monster.
Skills for Kills
Passive - This is his fury. His anger. His rage. At about 50% fury he will Empower his next skill. If you play him wrong he will use it on you and your family. Cuz hommie don't play dat.
First Priority - Your main farming tool and aided hp regen. Empowered allows a higher regen cap. This cuts through everything. Cuts through your face, through time and space, through cheese and especially pity. Cuz Ren don't pity da noob.
Second Priority - Slice and then dice and then pound their faces. Dice lowers their armor when Empowered so use it like a man. If you are a woman use it like a man on steroids with big man boobs. But use it. Also has several spots enabling terrain jumps and since you're already a badass since you're reading this guide i do not have to inform you of all their locations.
Last Priority - Stun em. Hurt em. Of course utilize your slice and dice to reach your target and then stun. Empowered enables a longer stun and more damage.
Levels 6/11/16 - Dominate. Little known fact for all you Latin dropouts. Dominus has several meanings, one can be interpreted as "Owner". This is when you must OWN them. Own hard and good.
Build the Beast
are your Core Items. This also happens to be the basis of this Cold-Blooded theme I have here.
After you purchase your and , try to get your . Although costly for only 180 hp, you need to start getting those stacks. This is also why veteran Renekton players are more this guides target audience.
At 20 stacks is giving you 820 hp and 15% damage reduction. Some believe its too hard to stack up leviathan with anything other than a pure tank. This is not true. Leviathan has one of the best passives in the game hands down. Once hitting 20 stacks and using the rest of the items in this build you will be Death Incarnate.
Make sure at about 15 stacks on you get your . This will help preserve your stacks every 5 minutes. But don't get too careless.
Our final item on the list is truly a personal choice. I tend to rock yet another Because i like to live dangerously. Some of you might want to instead pick for extra defense or to cap your CD. Whatever you feel comfortable with.
Of course there are many other variables in-game that may take your build in a slightly different direction, like if they are AP heavy or simply AD heavy or have lots of CC. Experienced players will know how to adapt to these situations and purchase what they need.
All-in-all this is not entirely a guide as it is more of a martial attitude. Basic guides are for the basics. There is only so much any guide can help the rest is left up to practice. The build here is not only a good theme but it's also very fun. Destroy your enemies. By any means. By your own means. Because you are a badass. You wield the power of Renekton because HE is a badass. And never forget... on the fields of justice.. you're also.. COLD-BLOODED!
And to boot, this is a short spree of wins with the build described in this guide. But don't be fooled. Builds don't win games. The summoners do...
