Threats & Synergies
Heavy poke, Blind screws ur W. Do short trades with e and q and when u reach lvl 3 all in with ignite and dont use ur w immediately, wait for his blind to wore off. Take Oracle Lens to spot his mushrooms.
In low elo this matchup isnt that hard, just be cautious of his q cause it hurts at lvl 1. When u face a good GP he can put barrels under him whenever u engage, slow you and punish you. He can heal ur w and get out of the stun too. U have better ult than his. Check in mini map if he uses it elsewhere on the map. Do small trades bait his w(22 sec cooldown at lvl 1) and all in him preferably at lvl 6.
Start e and do small trades with e and w, watch whenever he swicthes forms as it has 6 sec cooldown. in melee form hes e can counter urs e so try to dash behind him so he doesnt push you back in the minion wave and e back at him.
Pretty dificult lane for those who dont know the match up. He will try to cheese u lvl 1 as his q is way stronger than urs. Try to do small trades when he goes for his axe after lvl 2 and all in him with ignite and empowered w.
Dont dash into her w as it will stop u and she will win the trade. dont stay near walls with low hp and step on the cicrcle that popps off to reject her from getting a shield.
Stay back at lvl 1. dont w him when he has a shield(auto him to wore it off) and dont stay with low hp in lane as his q critically strikes when u have lass than 15% hp. After 6 u beat him hard.
Hard matchup, when u arrive in lane stay back until his passive autos proc, do fast e aa q aa ww e back combo and e back, the reason u dont aa after the w is that he will get of the stun and catch you with his e. dont stay with low hp avoid getting hit by his w as it hurts as hell(if he goes conqueror he procs it almost immediately)
Not a hard match up imo but pretty annoying. after spear of sojin u can 1v1 him every time u go in lane, He has strong lvl 1 and can negate some of ur damage with his shield.
insanely annoying lvl 1, stay back and wait for lvl 2, when he q you before lvl 3, auto q to even the trade. When he goes for trade at lvl 3 and after just w him, ur stun has the same duration as his silence. Dont combo him while he uses his w and stay out of his e as it hurts. poke him frequently to prevent him from healing from his passive. His r animation is faster than urs so when low hp pop ur ult before he kills you. Magic resist counters his ult damage.
Hard snowball champion, if u w her while she w u gonna lose the trade and probably die. The matchup revolves around her w, so do mind games and bait it out. if shes ahead u will always die to her and after 2-3 items she can be hard to 1v1.
The most BALLSY match up, the one that gets the first kill usually wins the lane. Stay back and wait for ur lvl 3, do QUICK trades and dont get caught by his e while u used yours or else u gonna die or have to use flash. Rush spear of sojin and enjoy free lane.
Whenever she goes for q, auto q her. at 5 stacks she can all in u even at level 1, and at level 2 if she gets her stun. Do small trades at level 3 and avoid using ur w at her w as it negates almost all of its damage.
His silence is really annoying as u cant use in the meantime any abilities and combo u off. Be cautios at lvl 6 as he can kill u if u have 40% hp and below with a good combo. Try to go for an early kill and have a free lane until he gets 2-3 items.
Avoid getting hit by his empowered q and bait out his w with e in, probably gonna pop it off and then e again and emp w and then q, his w cooldown is longer than ur e cooldown at rank 1 so u will have a small pair of time to do a full combo trade until he gets it again. He also scales hard so be cautious.
Avoid getting into him in tower range because he can taunt you and get turret aggro. dont waste ur w when he uses his w and try to bait it out, he gonna roam a lot with his r and be unkillable after a certian point cause he is going tank.
Whenever his w is up he gonna use it automatically, either on u or on minions, he will try to trade at this moment so when u see he uses fast auto attacks on minions or into you look in for a trade. when he is about to dismount dont waste all of ur combo and be cautious for when is about to mount again. he gets 20 points for an auto attack.
Whenever he qs a minion look in for a trade. dodge hes e (u can either use or e to escape or to aa it 2 times) try to kills his maiden cause if he hits u when shes up she gonna drain ur hp. He scales into a pretty good splitpusher so pay attention on the map.
Dont trade him level 1, if u are an experienced renekton player auto q him whenever he bites you. that way u both will go to 40% with frequent trades and look for an all in at level 3. always bring ignite in this match up. he has good good movement speed and when ur abilities are on cd dont go near minions as he combo and chunk you down.
really strong lvl 1, avoid trading him when he starts hiting with his q dont get caught into his w and u are safe. His lvl 6 is pretty annoying. Manage ur fury wisely, his qs can cancel ur e if they hit you.
She has pretty strong lvl 2, dont burn ur abilities on her passive shield( she procs it when she hits you) she has good small burst combos. bait out her e and all in her at lvl 6, u beat her hard
Pretty annoying matchup, after 2 items u can really kill him, he can use his r to come in the lane instanly, or use it defensively to leave whenever he is getting ganked or low hp, or offensively when u are low up and can get a combo on you. the longer he travles with his ult the longer u gonna get stunned by it. Avoid his e and u win every trade.
Avoid his q, and try to make him not to catch it in the way back, while he is in mega gnar he will try to fight you. At 6 u beat him every time, look for an early kill and shove waves after he builds full tank and look to roam.
She can hurt you only if she lands her e, if she does look for a burst trade to shorten the cooldown of ur trapped soul. Avoid getting hit by her tentacles and when she ults leave the circle immediately, then go back and kill her. Easy lane imo
Try to stand in front of the minion he is going to last hit with his cleaver for a while and look for small bursty trades, after a while his cleavers hurt because they do % damage. when he pops his ult u can burst him down with ur fury and ignite.
He doesnt really have any kill pressure against you, if he goes arcane comet watch out for his q poke and be careful for a sudden lvl 6 all in with his ult. push the first waves because he cant farm under turret and he is also extremely mana hungry early on. After u get tiamat u can freeze and punish him whenever he goes for a minion. The thing is he can use his ult for an escape.
Go for as many early kills possble. when he arrives in lane he will auto a lot the minions to build his fury, aa him whenever he goes for a hit and trade him whenever he wastes his e, at lvl 6 drop him an ignite when his ult ends and he gonna die, be careful when he e into u, aa q aa w aa and e off. He has good sustain from his q which heals depending from his fury.
he has kill pressure at lvl 1 and 2. At level 3 u can all in him, auto him to get his passive shield off and poke him at lvl 2 with e and q. At level if he has 50% hp or less, auto him to wore off his passive and with empowered w kill him doing a full trade plus ignite, After the first kill the lane is free.
He has good sustain and survivability, he cant kill u but after a point u can kill him, shove lanes as he cant farm under turret and roam/steal enemy junglers camps.
She has annoying lvl 1 but after that u dominate the lane, whenever she comes do a full combo and at level 6 u kill her every time.
start w build fury and emp w her at level, when she goes for minions auto her, bring ignite and kill her at lvl 1. After the lane is free.If shes a good riven or she plays passive freeze the lane and punish her whenever she goes for cs.
Start with w and auto w him whenever he goes for stacks. its free poke whenever he uses his q. u kill him until mid game.In late game where he has a lot of stacks and being a full tank he can 1v1 you. Dont push the wave under his turret as he can stack for free make u losing ur advantage.
He cant really 1v1 you but after a few items he is really annoying to fight, he shields like hell and builds full tank.
All of her kit synergizes perfectly with you. In general who ever has hard cc Synergizes perfectly with renekton
Great duo when she ults in lane or in teamfights u can folow and kill the target
He can run into enemies with his ult, providing cc for you to catch up and kill them
His w slows the target so u can catch him up and his e shreds his armor so u can finish him off.
Provides with as, shield and a great ult for when u are going in on teamfights
If she lands a good ultimate u can engage and assasinate the enemy.
