Threats & Synergies
He is just annoying to trade against especially if you do not get a lead on him. Jungle intervention from the enemy will put you behind and you will struggle to come back.
Skill matchup. You need to play around his Q and his healing. Make sure to time your combos or he will out heal.
Mundo will be easy to beat with the build suggested. Since BORK buffs renekton can one shot carries and shred tanks evenly.
Darius and renekton is skill matchup but as long as you dodge his Qs and bait his grab properly you will win. Ignite makes darius a lot easier. If you all in make sure to hug darius so he does not heal.
When you engage make sure to hold your W until after her riposte. You win if so.
You win early, let him use his counter strike then use your empowered combo afterwards. He will out scale you.
You beat morde after 6 and at level 3. Your all in just beats his.
You should hard win this matchup, he will outscale later on but with the suggested build you should shred him regardless.
Riven wishes she could beat you. Be careful of her all in though she can still kill with outplay potential.
You lose level 1/2 . Afterwards you just shred him entirely.
Sett in a pain even if you get ahead because you can't just roll over him, dodge his shield/burst and you will win.
This is a matchup which requires you to focus. You have to time your abilities and dashes well. Playing around his ultimate is key. You have to bait his ult and keep distance and then kill him with burn/Ignite after it runs out.
He has a lot of damage and range though so he wins early. You only win later on if he makes mistakes. dodge his ult.
Play around your fury, and try not to get stunned. Her all in is strong.
His range is annoying and will prevent you from getting ahead.
You need to play against his blind properly. If you play properly you kill him after a setup combo. If ahead you one shot. If behind he is a pain to play against.
You should win against him, his rupture is easily dodged and predicted.
She can be very annoying to play against if she lands her grabs. You can beat her in 1v1s but she will slow you down and prove to be a pain regardless just based on the fact she is illaoi.
He is a pain to play against. Wait for jungler or big mistakes from him.
She can be a pain to play aginst if you do not get ahead.
Champion Build Guide
Hey I'm XRVG and I have mained Renekton since season 4!
I've climbed to Diamond maining Renekton with win rates above 60%
I havn't yet tried to get masters or challenger yet but I may try this season.
When playing Renekton you MUST be confident and aggressive.
You must NOT be a KDA player.
The main goal is to hard stomp your lane, take turret platings and finally the turret. Then based on your midlaner and jungler either roam MID to help your team or take the herald to hard apply pressure TOP.
Renekton follows the same principle as most TOP laners.
Pressure. Pressure. Pressure.
People say TOP lane is an island, you do not need to leave TOP lane to carry, bring the enemies to you. Allow your team to have a free map and win through free resources.
When team fighting you want to HARD engage on the backline. Massive aoe damage which allow your team to just follow and cleanup. You want to use an empowered W on the highest damage target. Lock them down, kill them. Afterwards you wanna do as much aoe damage on the rest of the enemy team as possible.
The more you do, the less your team has to.
I hope you enjoyed this quick guide and it helps you on the rift,
