Not Updated For Current Season

The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.

Introduction

Hello everybody, and welcome to my first LoL guide. Now before we start I would like to go ahead and make note of 3 things.
1. I'm not a pro.
2. I'm not perfect and neither is this guide.
3. I did this guide as a little spare time project, so don't go crazy with the insults.

Smite Top Wat? Squishy Top Wat? Rengar Top Is Viable Wat?

FAQ
Smite?
Since the Jungle rework it's been no secret that jungle has become an even harder carry than before (jungle mains rejoice) but sadly for top laners like myself this has just made it even harder to carry your team from the "island" that is top. However, how Riot went about reworking jungle has actually had an effect on solo lanes because smite is now an effective in lane spell. Rengar (along with any other champion that used ignite in top lane) has been buffed (indirectly) in top like crazy. Now you can get 20 armor penetration straight off the bat, instant ignite damage instead of an unreliable burn that also slows making Rengar even more of a menace in 1v1 situations.
I Thought Top Laners Had To Be Tanky?
Well, whilst top lane tanks used to be the Meta, this has recently changed (Lulu, Lissandra, Wukong), though people often stick to tank/bruisers with either hard CC (Maokai, Alistar, Malphite) or Tank-Damage output (Rumble, Pantheon, Garen) but with the new "jungle" items I believe assassins are now the strongest picks for solo top.

Runes/Items/Masteries

Experiment with what you like and what fits best to your play style. I build Rengar's Runes/Masteries pretty standard, but I know things like Movespeed Quints and Health Seals work just fine with him. Along with that running 9/21/0 Masteries is actually really strong for early game in lane against squishier opponents.
