[11.23] Season 11/ Preseason Master's 5 Million Mastery P1To

By P1Legend
Who Am I?

Hey guys, my name is Tony, and I'm a Masters Ap Rengar 1 Trick. I started playing Ap Rengar in Season 3, after an Instalok song "How Ap Rengar Got Fed" was released. At the time I thought it would be funny to try, as I was already playing AD Rengar. And here we are, 8 Seasons and 4 Million Mastery later, still playing it. I Started Streaming on Twitch recently after 7 years of not having good enough Internet. So if you would like to see the build in action, you can find me there!

My Stream is Here
Why Would You play Ap Rengar? Isn't Ad Better?
So I get asked quite often why I play Ap Rengar instead of Ad, and the answer is simply, I prefer the playstyle. They do different things. I believe that Ap Rengar is far better than just a meme build that people play for fun. Its something I have consistently hit diamond with every single season, and in Season 11, have hit Masters with. I continue playing it because I want to share that with people who are curious about the playstyle, and besides, I personally think it is way more fun.
What Can Ap Rengar Do?


If you slowed down the gif to move frame by frame, you would see that Trist goes from 100% health to death in just a single frame




Ap Rengar's combo is actually faster than AD Rengar's Combo. This is because Empowered W does not have a locking animation, and the cast time is instant. This will allow you to do a much faster and safer 1 shot than AD can do in many situations, and gives access to some really cool techs that I will show down below.

Ap Rengar Penta Clip


Why E max over Q?
So people who know me before making this guide, know that I used to max Q second after W. This was mainly because prior to its removal, I used to build Hextech Gunblade (Rest in peace) which would give me some sort of AD ratio to play off of. With that item removed from the game, maxing E second makes more sense now, as it has a higher base damage scaling of 45 damage per level vs Q's 30 damage per level. Also, the 90% slow is actually very strong at level 13, something AD Rengar usually doesn't see until level 18, if he even uses it for anything outside 1 shot comboing.

TLDR; E base damage scales higher + 90% slow
Items
Sorcerer's Shoes - These are the go to boots, 18 flat pen is really not replaceable by any other boot options. The only other boots that I could see being worth anything with this build would be Lucidity boots, but again, Sorcerer's are just better for what we are trying to accomplish.

Hextech Rocketbelt - The staple mythic in this build. This mythic not only gives you the ability to do the extended leap tech, but it also gives 5 extra flat magic pen for each mythic you have. Not to mention in patch 11.8, Riot is planning to give this item an extra 6 pen flat on the item itself. If you add Together all the flat pen from your first core 3 items, you get 18 from boots, 6 from sudden impact, 6 more from Rocketbelt, and 5 extra for the mythic passive. 18 + 6 + 6 + 5 = 35 Magic Pen flat, at 3 items, which is true damage to most squishy targets at that stage in the game without MR. I think this is the best mythic that you can get for Ap Rengar right now.

Lich Bane - Lich Bane not only gives you empowered auto attacks that scale with Ap, but it also gives 10% movement speed. You could rush this as a first item without getting boots, and you would still be at 380 Movement speed. Combine this with Tier 2 boots, and you are at 426 movement speed. Mobility aside, Lich bane is and was a great item for Ap Rengar even when it had mana, So when they revamped the item and took out the mana for other tradeoffs, who wouldn't want this item? This gives your Q purpose even in the Ap build.

Rabadon's Deathcap - A very great power spike item to get as a third legendary. Rabadon's Deathcap will boost your Ap into the 500+ range, letting you 1 shot faster, and potentially even multi-kill groups with the burst. This is a great buy if you do not need to buy the other survivability/engage items, or if you have someone else engaging for you. Nothing much more to say on this one, this item is just raw power.

Void Staff - Void Staff is either bought right before deathcap, or right after if needed. This item works great when you add it together with the flat pen you have. 40% Pen is really huge, if you consider all the pen you are already getting. Lets say the enemy adc has 90 MR, and you have 5 items into the late game. You will have 18 (boots) + 26 (4 mythic Rocketbelt) + 6 (sudden impact) which = 50 flat pen, which can go to 55 at full build, but lets just use 50, 5 items.

So what does this mean exactly? Well in League, % pen is calculated before flat pen, which means 40% of 90 is 36, + 50 flat pen, giving you a total of 86 flat pen vs their 90 MR. That's a full Maw + Mercs worth of MR btw.

So anyway, yeah, great purchase, get it if they stack MR, if they don't, you probably wont even need the % pen with all the flat pen you have.

Banshee's - Banshees is a great item to get into champions who can deny your engage, like Alistar, Lulu, Poppy in some cases, Janna, etc. Since your combo is so fast, they are very unlikely to get off 2 CC abilities in the short time it takes for you to do your full combo, making killing an ADC much easier vs heavy peel/anti-engage. Also a great buy into Ap heavy/high Ap threat comps.

Zhonya's Hourglass - A great item that will allow you to jump into 5 players and stop them from doing anything about it. While I don't actually buy this item very often, because I usually use the retreating combo in the same scenarios I would end up using Hourglass, it is a great item to get in the late game. I find it much more common to get Banshees so I can engage without getting instantly CCed than getting hourglass though, and in some cases, you can even get both if you are looking to be heavy AOE damage for your team.
The Combo
The combo for Ap Rengar is Q during ult before leap > E mid air > W on landing > Rocketbelt > Empowered W. This can all be done within 0.1 Seconds
Advanced Leap Techs




Since Rocketbelt is the staple mythic for this build, these are some of the jumps you can make. This can be used to increase leap range when ganking mid, stealing objectives, or used in the mid/late game to increase catch potential
