Champion Build Guide

Bask in their blood!

By vortecks
Read the League of Legends Wiki page on Renekton before this guide because I won't be explaining much on the basics of this champion, I'm sure that it explains Renekton better than I can.
Starting Items Back to Top
The reason why long sword Long Sword is a better option than Doran's Blade, is because Doran's Blade will eventually be sold leaving you at a 270g deficit. However, if you buy a long sword, this is built into a Tiamat. This wastes no gold.
Abilities Back to Top

Reign of Anger

This is Renekton's 'resource'. Fury should only be used on Cull the Meek or Ruthless Predator. This maximises damage as Slice and Dice does not add damage. Make sure that you have enough fury before entering a fight.

Fury can be gained by:

    Autoattacking minions
    Using non-fury empowered abilities on minions
    Using Renekton's ulimate

Cull the Meek

This is the first ability you should level. Use Cull the Meek to take the first three melee minions in lane. Cull the Meek can be used to poke in lane as it has a significantly larger range than Renekton's autoattack range.
Using an empowered Cull the Meek is great when in low HP and there are a lot of minions in lane and in teamfights. The heal is increased by 4x making it the best option against multiple opponents.

Ruthless Predator

Ruthless Predator is Renekton's main source of damage. This is a single target 0.75s stun or 1.5s when empowered. This procs on hit effects such as Tiamat and Blade of the Ruined King. Use your fury to empower Ruthless Predator when you are in a 1v1 or need to lockdown a carry. This deals more damage than your other abilities and increases the stun duration to 1.5s.

Slice and Dice

This is Renekton's dash(es). You need to hit the first cast of Slice and Dice in order to receive the second cast. This is the ability you do not want to use your fury on. The armour shred is a waste compared to a damage, heal or stun increase. Slice and Dice can be used to dash over small walls and cut corners. Found here.


Dominus is Renekton's ultimate ability. He gains bonus health, attack range, surrounding AoE damage and 20 fury instantly. Over the duration he gains 5 fury per second. Preferably you want to use this to cancel your Ruthless Predator animation however, most of the time you want to activate it before a fight stsrts. This allows you to have enough fury to get one empowered ability.
Runes Back to Top



Conqueror is the best option for fighter matchups such as Darius, Riven etc. Conqueror excels in extended trades where you know you will win. It deals less damage than Press the Attack however, it gives healing and true damage which is great for when the enemy has bought armour.

Press the Attack

Press the Attack is better for ranged matchups and against champions which you will want to go for quick trades. Examples for ranged matchups are: Teemo, Kennen, Quinn.
Examples for melee matchups are: Irelia, Jax, Aatrox.
Your Ruthless Predator will stack 2/3 parts of Press the Attack however, if you use it to reset and autoattack you will proc Press the Attack.

Precision Tree


is the best option here as you won't use Overheal due to frequent trades and Presence of Mind's mana is wasted.

Legend: Alacrity

You should take this as it reducing the duration of your autoattack, making combos faster.

Last Stand

can be changed with Coup de Grace however, usually you want Last Stand. Due to Renekton's low-ish base health, Last Stand will become more useful and output more damage. Also it gives a surprising amount of damage which your opponents won't expect.

Inspiration Tree

Take this tree against most matchups.

Magical Footwear

Magical Footwear allows you to buy your Black Cleaver or Spear of Shojin faster.

Cosmic Insight

allows your Slice and Dice to come off cooldown more often to allow you to trade more.

Resolve Tree

Take this tree against ranged matchups that have a lot of poke and Jayce.

Second Wind

Second Wind allows you to survive much longer with the health regeneration that it provides.


This allows you to soak up more damage.
Itemization Back to Top


You need this. Tiamat allows you to push waves faster which helps you to reach your 2 item powerspike faster.

Black Cleaver

As Renekton is a caster type champion, he will stack Black Cleaver's passive extremely fast and be able to maximise the armour shred. The 20% CDR extremely useful for his longish cooldowns.

Blade of the Ruined King

Blade of the Ruined King synergises extremely well with Renekton's Ruthless Predator. The % health damage procs 2-3x. Buy this items when you need a high, single target burst.

Death's Dance

Gives extra heals, 80 AD and finishes 40/45% CDR. This is a more teamfight oriented item as it will heal Renekton for a large amount of health if he lands a multi-champion Cull the Meek. Also the 80 AD is nothing to ignore.

Sterak's Gage and Maw of Malmortius

If your team needs a tank choose one of these items. Usually you want Sterak's Gage for the raw health however, if their team is AP heavy, purchase Maw of Malmortius.

Guardian Angel

If your team desperately needs an engage, buy this item. Even if it gets popped, it will give your team enough time to follow up.

Titanic Hydra and Ravenous Hydra

If you are already building tank, Titanic Hydra will synergise well with your bonus health. If not, build Ravenous Hydra. Make sure to build these items last as the stats they provide are lacklustre compared to other items due to the AoE damage provided by Tiamat
