(10.3) In-Depth Rengar Top Guide

By Loevely
Hello there! My name is Lovely and I have been mainly a Rengar One-Trick since roughly season 3. I've been consistently Diamond with a D1 peak. I decided to make this guide as a way to both help newcomers learn to play Rengar top since I consider Rengar top much more skillful and enjoyable than most people give it credit for.

This will be strictly a Rengar Top guide since that is where I play him primarily.

Rengar Tech

Oneshot Combo

We'll start off with a fan favorite, the oneshot. Everyone loves doing this combo and it's one of the things most people want to learn first. The notations go like this:

Q -> Leap -> E -> Tiamat -> W -> Emp Q (Tiamat and W should be done as you're landing)

Oneshot Combo Version 2

Q -> Leap -> E -> Tiamat -> W -> Emp W (More DPS but less overall damage)

E Flash and Leap E Flash

Rengar's E normally has a small cast time that can be bypassed by the use of Flash. Here's a video demonstrating the Leap - E - Flash.

R TP and TP leap

If Rengar casts teleport while in bush, he will then be able to instantly leap after the TP is completed. You can also R before you TP giving you the ability to TP in stealh.

Ward Jumps and Double Jump

Since I made all the videos in practice tool, I don't jump to wards; instead I jump onto training dummies, just fyi. So yeah, Rengar can jump to wards and reset his AA timer which allows him to essentially double jump. The idea behind it is that you use your Q to reset your auto after landing. In the video you'll see the a few variations: No Q, Q right before landing, and then the right way to do it.

Ferocity Managment

Arguably THE single most important aspect of Rengars kit. Ferocity managment is what seperates the good Rengar players from the greats. No videos here only bulletpoints.
    Break plants in order to keep your ferocity up for as long as possible
    When your ferocity is about to run out, use your empowered Q to gain movespeed as well as to be prepared for potential fights
    If you are at 3 ferocity and it's about to run out, use either Q or E to extend the duration by a very small amount

Maximizing damage on turrets

The standard and most efficient way in which Rengar takes down turrets is simply by hitting them and reseting AA's with Q when on CD. However, Rengar is able to apply his Q damage on turrents through the use of bushes and his ult(this also works with Ivern bushes!).

Blast Cone Cancels

Normally when Rengar leaps to Blast Cones he is sent right back. Through the use of Flash, however, he is able to simply flash over it, nullifying the blast as well as putting him in a favorable position.

Jungle Camp Jumps

A number of videos that showcase different jumps. Will continue to add other jumps with later updates, need sleep.

Concealed Snare

This is some tech that I came up with randomly in practice tool. It isn't something game breaking, but it's definitely something that could be benefitial in certain situations. Doing this trick will allow you to bypass the E cast time while also putting you right on top of the enemy.

Maximizing empowered Q DPS

There are three ways in which you can use your empowered Q out of bush in order to deal damage. The most common being Leap - AA - Emp Q. The truth is, however, that there are 2 other ways in which you can use your empowered Q do deal the max amount of damage as fast as possible.
    Leap -> AA -> Emp Q (avg DPS = 466, no stack)
    Leap -> Emp Q mid leap -> AA (avg DPS = 507, no stack)
    Emp Q -> leap -> AA (avg DPS = 354, gives stack)
Skin Tier List
No skin was created equal in League of Legends and the same could be said for every Rengar skin. At the end of the day, this is all personal preference, but I think I'm still right

The list goes left to right with Headhunter being the best and SSW the worst. But why is it like this?

Headhunter is a no-brainer. It's a gorgeous skin with simple, yet effective particles with subtle sound effects, and an awesome theme. The skin is also silky smooth in its gameplay making it feel better than most of the other skins. And for a price of 975RP, it's definitely worth the purchase.

Pretty Kity Rengar is the newest addition to the Rengar skin line and has quickly become my second favorite skin. It feels great to play with it, has a sick theme, and great VFX and SFX to boot. Only reason I place it under Headhunter is because I like the Headhunter theme more.

Base Rengar is great. It's not flashy like the other skins but is silky smooth similar to Headhunter and Pretty Kity.

Nighthunter was Rengar's second skin and is a somewhat popular skin among the fans. The problem with this skin, however, is that the particles are somewhat bugged. The Q trail particles sometimes don't work, the ult camo color doesn't work, and the actual Q stab feels weird. Once all these issues are fixed, it could be a much better skin.

Mecha Rengar is an expensive skin that lacks in a few things the skins above him don't. The skin feels clunkier than all the skins above it due to his different Q animation, the particles and effects are arguably worse than those of Pretty kitty or Headhunter, and his overall design just looks unnecesseraly bulky.

SSW Rengar is dog****. Do not buy this skin. It's ugly. It's just an uglier base Rengar so why would you pick it over that ever?
Final Words + Change log
