Introduction

Welcome to the build I saw it on Iem new York today by Voy from team dignatas and I think it is worthy of mobafire and saw how he played with it with all the changes that happened to Renekton.I also think this build is the way forward I am unsure on the right masteries and runes and the last two items because the game was over before I could see them etc.


Guide Top

What is Renekton

He is a great solo top bruiser means can take a fair bit of damage and deal a fair bit back he uses the rage system. If you are unaware what that is it is whenever he makes an attack he gets rage and when he gets fifty or above he deals more damage with and also.

His mechanics are fun to use and get you out of tight situations Renektons job is similar to a tank but he can burst really well what you have to do with him is basically burst run out and move onto another target with your team

Heals him when this occurs
More damage
More damage

I go more in detail further into the guide


Guide Top

fury usage

Use your Q to heal to help you sustain solo top especially if you get ganked often by their jungle you need one way to get your health back up and it’s this.

There is no point using this with fury a bit more damage only useful for farming is the only time you should use it with fury so you can push the other solo back. While you go back or as a gap closer which is the most common choice and they will probably dodge it. So it’s only used for them two things.

most useful 1v1 1.5 sec stun 3 more hits hell yeah if you're solo get 2 points in this early then max Q because of the sustainability it provides a lot of bonus health gain. It provides and W is usually used for team fights you want to sustain not get low and have to back each time.

Pros/Cons

pros
New meta build
It is tanky dps
Renekton has cc and lots of sustain for solo and for what I have seen kicks chos ***
Zones some champs out

cons
Requires some know how of renektons mechanics to perform great
Not as sustainable as some tanky dps
Ad range top would destroy him


Guide Top

Summoner Spellls


Flash multiple uses flash over walls through bushes another blink ability will make you very difficult to catch or very difficult for enemies to get away from.

Why ignite on Renekton adds to his burst and makes durable champions like Cho Gath cry it has 50% heal reduction. And deals true damage and ensures a kill most of the time.

Runes

Runes

Greater Mark of Lethality
9

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Lethality
3
This rune setup gives Renekton more armour to stop them ad carries tearing you apart Renekton's abilities are all physical damage based. But his ultimate so more penetration more damage.Basicly more damage mid to late game magic resist against casters is very effective.

Optional runes

Runes

Greater Mark of Lethality

Greater Seal of Evasion

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed

dodge makes nimbleness proc more often to provide bursts of move speed more often along with move speed quintessences you're one fast crocodile while still being durable dodge and move speed quintessence are great if you can afford them.

Renekton doesn't need to be more tank in masteries as stonewall008 says ''counter balancing'' I believe in this also because if you think about it what's the point of taking lots of damage and dealing minuscule damage back I shall answer no point.

The 9 in defence gives you a bit more of a tank start and is op and 21 in offence cool down. More armour penetration 4% more damage which is nice more critical damage by a whopping 10% which is decent 3 more ad when ability's scale with it why not

A bit more of a tank but also still has some armour penetration some dodge chance and nimbleness I still prefer the original masteries but these are good aswell its about personal preference.

Core items

Gap closer anyone this combined with you cannot be stopped watch them squishes run in fear of you so say bye to that him and his cannot outrun you any more.
Combined with atmas and some resistance all I can say is immovable much he can stack this so easily because he is a great farmer and doesn't worry about spamming skills and you should be helping you're team in pushes not just solo top farming all game get in that team fight and wreck some faces.
Amazing damage per second and good against annoying melee champions
like and a run for their money while being as beefy as beef stew
Amazing damage per second combined with warmogs armour and more survivability item. against that silly just laugh as he does nothing to you

Movement speed critical chance attack speed damage cool down yes please this combined with two words GOD MODE.


Guide Top

Boots

If the enemy has a lot of crowd control effects these boots are a must buy. There is no point getting cool down if you get crowd controlled before you do anything like if that fed Morgana uses and drops .On you might actually survive or if that ability power twisted fate pops up out of his ultimate. And uses either gold or red that tenacity and magic resist is to good to ignore.


Guide Top

Farming

Hit and hit again to damage two waves of creeps then use.In the centre and if they are not dead last hit them can destroy creep waves easier when you get cool down reduction items.

How to use Renekton and his duty

You should dive into the fights with his team stun the carry and use all your skills with ignite should be able to burst him down eventually and move onto another target like I have said previously but if one of your squishiest champion is going to get frost arrow guess who is going to block it you.

If you're jungle wants to gank and is waiting for the moment just that and watch him scream if a .Is going to one shot you're guess who is going to turn around and stun them you.

If you want to push a lane use the farm combination above and push that tower and make the enemy team cry.

If you're tank isn't there who will tank that turret using you guessed it you do these tips and get better at them and you will be a great Renekton in no time


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Voy from team dignatas rocked using this build in iem New York and I have seen it work wonders. But it does depend on team combination of both you're team and the enemy team I believe this can work with the new meta.


Guide Top

Teamwork

Use Ruthless Predator to stun the squishes and then combo there faces of.
Use Slice and Dice to get into range and try and get in front of them so its easier and you can get more attacks of and get more attacks of.
Exquisite skill and gives a nice heal when you have fifty rage or more this is you're nuke basicly you want to hit most the enemy team with this.
Great skill makes you even more beefy and will also add some nice damage to your atmas and generate five fury per second and has some damage per second also.

Combo

Before level six

Level six


Guide Top

Solo top


Starting cloth armour and five health potions is good also but I prefer boots if you're against a strong ad. Get cloth armour and five potions wriggles lantern sounds good if you feel you need more sustain note.: Not my video thanks to KarrotLegs


Guide Top

Zoning an enemy out

Rhysyo what is zoning?

zoning is

Why would I want to do this I will get ganked in a solo lane may you ask well it gets them under levelled but you have to get them low first so just poke them with the combo. And when the chance arises combo ignite go back buy and repeat until you force the jungle out denying the jungle and him experience .While you're jungle gets the level advantage and ganks pushes lane kills them is how it usually works if done correctly get sight ward are also helpful

Summary

With this build Renekton can deal a lot of burst while being very durable thank you for reading my guide
