Threats & Synergies
Really Nasty Matchup, you will have to wreck her in early, as it will be really hard for you after she hit lvl 6. She has lots of CC and decent amount of burst. dont trade with her, just try to burst her down with full rage ON. Go PTA
This matchup sucks. You can't trade with him pre 6 because if you try to get on top of him. Once you hit 6, if he misses his snare, then you possibly have a chance to out trade him. Expect a rough lane and being kited out all game. Go PTA
Blinds can ruin your day and she can kite you really easily. Once you have 6, you can 1v1 however she will be roaming so push your lane hard when she is MIA and get the plates. Go PTA
Dorans shield start. He is much better in team fights. You might be able to kill him if he uses his dash, however you will probably lose every trade. Take advantage of his cooldowns if he makes a mistake. Go PTA
Vayne top is disgusting, so if you ever face her, play safe and just wait for your jungle, as you wont be able to trade with her properly, unless she waste her E, then u can dash and just stomp her. Go PTA
Really hard matchup, you can outrade only if he is bad, be careful with barrells and all in him on lvl 6 if he waste his W.
You might have a chance to kill him early on, however once he gets frozen mallet, then you will be kited all game and your 1v1 potential is done. Just clear waves. Take Dorans Shield. Go conqueror.
Ultra annoying matchup, she is very tanky and has a huge amount of damage in early,Focus on trading only when you are full RAGE, you might be able to stomp her in early. Go Conqueror and try to wait for her mistake.
Very hard matchup, ask for ganks, go doran's shield, play safe,try to roam and get a lead, last hit and dont push, try to get a lead before level 6 because his ult is completely dumb and annoying (still killable at level 6 but it's a skill matchup, that is favored to him). dodge his axes. go Conqueror.
Mostly skill matchup. try to trade with him when his machine thingy is down (when he gets his shield), and avoid getting to low on hp when he's level 6, unless you know for 100% you can kill him. go Conqueror.
Play safe before level 6, go dorans shield. dont let him stun you with his full stacks, play safely before lvl 6, then stack some rage and Wreck him. It will be very hard for you if you die in early against him.
Play safe in early, trade only when he is overheated and you are full rage, they you will be able to outrade him. Be careful in early trades, try to stay safe and farm.
Hard matchup, you have to kill her before lvl 6, dodge her tentacles and E. stack full rage and all in, you should be able to outrade her if you dodge her abilities. Go conqueror.
Skill Matchup, Dash and all in him when you have full rage and he uses his Q on minions or you just dodge it. You should be able to outrade him if you manage your rage properly. Go conqueror.
All in him when you have full rage and he had made a mistake. Burst him to demount and all in after he is demounted. you should be able to outrade him early if you play it properly and manage your rage well. go Conqueror
Quite difficult matchup, all in if he makes a mistake and uses his W early. You should be able to outrade him early if you keep your rage full from farming minions, it will give you early game advantage, dont let him push you, if he snowball it will be unreal to trade with him. Go PTA, rush Mercs, get some MR items
OTP Camille will be really tricky matchup, it will be hard to outrade her, if she is good play safe and dont let to zone you, keep your rage full and trade her if she miss her slow. on lvl 6 you should be able to wreck her. Go PTA.
its really hard to kill a Good Ornn, trade him couple of times to keep him low, try to zone him, dont let him farm too much, if he gets items he will become immortal, as Ornns always go full tank, you have to kill him early. Go conqueror.
Its easy if you use your W(Stun) smart, dont let her parry you, then its easy. Wreck her early as it will be really hard later, she scales like mad. Demolish her on top and try to push the game tempo, try to avoid late game. Go PTA.
Its quite easy, if you dodge his Q. Stack rage, play agressive in early, dont let him farm, wreck him pre lvl 6. Go conqueror.
Quite easy if you play it smart, when your rage is full, you can outrade her in early, dont let her farm too much as it will be becoming harder for you. You should be able to wreck her early, I consider it as one of the easiest match ups. Go PTA
Try to deny his stacking whenever you can, zone him early,you can deny him by freezing or trading with your W to prevent him from stacking cannons. build up fury and look for all in at level 2, you'll need to sit top most of the game. Go Conqueror
Play safe until level 3, build up rage, after lvl 3 you can outrade him if you play smart, get lead before lvl 6 so you will be safe after he hit lvl 6. You should be able to outrade him easily after lvl 3. Go conqueror
at level 1, try to zone him from cs, if he gets close, W him when u have 50 fury and walk away, do not go for extended trade or he will kill you level 1 if he gets enough fury. at level 3 u can go for short trades if he have fury, care for his W, if he does not have fury go for extended trade if u 100% sure u can kill him Go PTA
He cant do much, if you are at 100% rage and have conqueror, bait his parry zone, then all in and wreck him, if he R to help his team mates on mid or bot, see if you can TP, if u cant, just push lane and get the plates, it is one of the easiest matchups u can get.
Basically, free farm for you. Go Conqueror
Keep trading with him to prevent his passive shield from coming up. Your sustain with Q and him having none is a big advantage in this matchup.
If you dodge his combo, he is like a minion to you, free farm.
Just dodge farm, then Dash and do all in, free kill.
Play safe until lvl 3, build rage and all in on lvl 3, free kill. Go PTA
If you dodge his Q and Dash on him, he is dead, basically, easy 1v1 matchup, go PTA and get kills on him.
be safe until lvl 3, after that its free farm, easy money. He has nothing for you, unless you troll or just bad really bad.
He struggles to trade with you at level 3 and for the rest of the game you should be able to press your dominance. Shove lanes because he is really bad under tower.
Unless he is fed, he is just free farm.
If you dodge her spear, its free farm, just like a cannon minion.
Basically, she has nothing to kill you 1v1, if you ever face her on top, just farm like a minion, easy money man :)
I'm a Alzeidx, EUW Renek Main and streamer,Ive reached Diamond 3 in my first season, after 3 years long break from League.
I am OTP Renek with 500k mastery points on him. I made this guide because I think a lot of people underestimate Renekton or play him incorrectly, because of lack information or knowledge against certain matchups.
I believe it is one of the strongest top laners at the moment, if played correctly, he can basically win anyone, that could be the reason he is getting constantly banned in big tournaments, he is very strong at pro play level, as well as in any ranked game basically.
Renekton is efficient on all elos, starting from iron and up to challenger. I will do my best to help you get better at playing Renekton and climb ladder fast and easy.
Ganking Synergy - High
Speciality - Lane dominance, Mid Game carry, split pushing.
Once you master him, it will be more than enough to hit at least Plat just by playing 1 Renekton on top or even mid.
|→ Strong early and mid game||→ Renekton is weak against Ranged|
|→ Single target, unavoidable CC (stun)||→ Flash reliant in teamfights|
|→ Good Mobility||→ Relatively easy to kite|
|→ Good healing from Q||→ Falls off in Late Game|
|→ Split pushing potential||→ Gets outscaled in Late Game|
|→ Quite tanky champ||→ Cooldown reliant|
|→ Huge burst damage (Early/Mid)||→ Easy to predict|
2.Your First power Spike is level 3, make sure to build up rage Reign of Anger until you go all in.
3.Try to Zone Off your enemy on Top Lane in Early game, by building up full rage Reign of Anger, if he comes for a minion, dash on him and do a combo. Slice and Dice AA Ruthless Predator Cull the Meek AA Slice and Dice
4. After Laning phase, make sure to use your advantage as one of best Mid Game champs, roam and get kills/objectives.
5. Use your E Slice and Dice To Dash through walls to escape.
6. Make sure to always get Guardian Angel for Late Game so you can engage, do all in and still survive after it.
7. Against heavy CC teams, rush for Mercs Mercury's Treads and if there is lots of app, go for Spirit Visage
When at or above 50 Fury, Renekton's next basic ability consumes 50 Fury to enhance its effects. The enhanced ability does not generate Fury.
Renekton generates 50% bonus Fury from all sources while Health icon below 50% of his maximum health.
So, basically thats all your damage, you stack Auto Attacks to get Rage and Rage gives you empowered abilities to make burst damage.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 65 / 100 / 135 / 170 / 205 (+ 80% bonus AD)
NON-CHAMPION HEALING: 3 / 4.5 / 6 / 7.5 / 9 (+ 4% bonus AD)
HEALING CAP: 50 / 75 / 100 / 125 / 150
Renekton also generates Fury resource 2.5 Fury for each non-champion hit and 10 Fury for each champion hit, with the Fury generated per cast capped at 30.
Against champions the healing is increased by 300%.
Reign of Anger: Cull the Meek deals additional damage, increases the total healing by 200%, and the healing cap by 300%.
Basically, thats your sustain, you damage and you heal from it, make sure to use it when you have at least 50% rage, if it's empowered it deals more damage and it heals more, it is especially effective if you use it on multiple champions or 2 packs of minions
TOTAL PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 10 / 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 (+ 150% AD)
Reign of Anger REIGN OF ANGER: Renekton destroys damage-mitigating shields on the target before striking them 3 times, dealing 50% bonus damage and increasing the Stun icon stun duration to 1.5 seconds.
TOTAL ENHANCED DAMAGE: 15 / 45 / 75 / 105 / 135 (+ 225% AD)
Ruthless Predator resets Renekton's basic attack timer.
So, in short, thats your main source of damage.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 40 / 70 / 100 / 130 / 160 (+ 90% bonus AD)
Hitting an enemy allows Renekton to cast Dice within the next 4 seconds.
ACTIVE - DICE: Renekton Dash dashes in the target direction, dealing the same physical damage to all enemies he passes through.
TOTAL PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 80 / 140 / 200 / 260 / 320 (+ 180% bonus AD)
Both Slice and Dice generate Fury resource 2 Fury for each non-champion hit, and 10 Fury for each champion hit, with the Fury generated per dash capped at 30.
Reign of Anger: Dice deals additional damage to all enemies and reduces their Armor icon armor for 4 seconds.
ENHANCED PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+ 135% bonus AD)
ARMOR REDUCTION: 25 / 27.5 / 30 / 32.5 / 35%
One of the most useless empowered abilities, maybe against heavy armor tank it will be useful, in any other situation, just use your rage for W and Q.
250 / 500 / 750
For the duration, he deals Magic damage magic damage each half second to all nearby enemies and generates 5 Fury per second, up to a maximum of 75 Fury.
MAGIC DAMAGE PER HALF SECOND: 20 / 40 / 60 (+ 10% AP)
Really useful ability, both for offense and defense.
E Slice and Dice + AA + W Ruthless Predator + Q Cull the Meek
E Slice and Dice + AA + W Ruthless Predator + Tiamat + Q Cull the Meek + E Slice and Dice or Ignite or Flash and AA
All in combo level 2
E Slice and Dice + AA + W Ruthless Predator + E Slice and Dice
Other option of combo
E Slice and Dice + AA + W Ruthless Predator + E Slice and Dice +/ Ignite / Flash / AA
All in combo level 3:
E Slice and Dice + AA + W Ruthless Predator + Q Cull the Meek + E Slice and Dice
Other option of combo
E Slice and Dice + AA + W Ruthless Predator + Q Cull the Meek + E Slice and Dice + Ignite or Flash + AA
fast lane poke combo:
AA + Q Cull the Meek (Decent poke combo against most of the matchups)
While Legend: Tenacity is more a tanky/safe option.
Cull the Meek, but I would it call the best option.
Taste of Blood Good for sustain and survivability, but I usually take Demolish as instead of sustain/survivability I prefer to get plates and gold lead as soon as I can.
Stick around with your team and make sure to eat back lane alive (adc, mages, supports .basically everyone that is fast and easy to kill).
I am sure it wont be long enough until you master this champion and believe me, it is really worth it.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions.
