Hi in this guide i will show how i play renekton.

On a faraway world, Renekton was born a member of a race of bestial guardians created to serve as the rulers and protectors of their people. Alongside his brother Nasus, Renekton oversaw the upkeep of the Great Library, which served as both a vault of ancient knowledge and the repository of the teachings of the Cycle of Life and Death. While the enlightened Nasus taught those scholars who came to study, Renekton served as the Great Library's gatekeeper. He could sense the true natures of those who sought Nasus' teachings, and he sent away those with dark ambitions. Over time, however, his repeated exposure to this evil infected his mind. He grew furious with the malevolence in the hearts of men, and as he descended deeper into madness, he discovered he could quell the fury by cutting the evil from the men who possessed it. Unfortunately, the relief was as short-lived as the subjects, and the ''butcher's rage'', as it came to be known, would resurge even stronger.

Consumed by his anger, Renekton turned on the one being who could defeat him -- his own brother. Nasus pleaded with Renekton to see reason. Realizing that he was beyond redemption, the despondent Nasus valiantly struck down his wayward sibling. Defenseless, Renekton waited eagerly for death's release. It never came. He was spared when summoners from the League of Legends claimed his brother. Caught in the wake of this powerful spell, Renekton tumbled for what seemed like ages between realities. When he finally emerged, he fell deep into the sewers of Zaun. Insane with fury, Renekton languished in his newfound home, driven senseless by his rage. That is until, by happenstance, he caught a familiar scent on the air. Believing that the familiar scent who guide him to the solace which was fading from his memory, he his brother all the way to the Institute of War.

''My brother has become hollow. Full of rage, but empty.'' -- Nasus, the Curator of the Sands.

Greater Mark of Lethality

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Lethality
Greater mark of desolation i chose this runes because in my opinion Renekton is squishy early game so it this he can do more damage on the oponent.

i play Renekton with this runes because most of the solo top champs is AD champs and he needs to get some armor to stay alive in the game and win some substance

Greater clyph of shielding i use this because i play Renekton as a tanky melle champ and he needs some MR.

Greater quintessence of Desolation i use this by the same resion why i use in the marks because with this renekton do more damage to the enemy champs. But you can also use Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed because it gives more movement speed and that is also good

; i incress this on defense tree because it guives armor and magic resistance.

; i incress this because gives more HP to Renekton. Renekton is a champ that already have some hp but hp is never too much.

; i incress this because reduces incoming damage.

i incress this because gives movement speed one thing that Renekton needs.

the reason why i incress this instead of other is because my build is expensive and some extra money can make the game more easier.

yhis is the better thing that the defense tree have because it incre***es the maximum healt by 3% and reduces the duration of incoming disables by 10%.

i incress this because in the spells i take exausht and this improves exausht.

i incress this because this improves atacke damage.

i incress this because this improve atack speed

this is the reason why i incress the offensive tree to give more armor penetration to renekton.

In my damage build i put 21 points in offensive tree because with that build i need damage so because of that i choose that tree.

Item Sequence

Mercury's Treads

Youmuu's Ghostblade

Frozen Mallet

Maw of Malmortius

The Bloodthirster

Guardian Angel


In the boots you can choose tree tips Ionian Boots of Lucidity, Mercury's Treads or Ninja Tabi i usually play with Mercury's Treads because it gives 35 of tenacity but the other buts are also good.
The reason why i don´t play with Berserker's Greaves because i think that renekton already have enough atack speed with Youmuu's Ghostblade

i think this is a great item for Renekton because gives cooldown reduction, armor penetration and have a active ability that Gives 20% movement speed and +50% attack speed for 4 seconds. Attacking enemies with melee attacks increases the duration by 2 seconds to a maximum of 8 seconds. (60 second cooldown)..And this item wotk very nice with the Infinity Edge.

this is also a good item for Renekton because gives him 700 HP and have a passive ability that makes Physical attacks reduce your target's Movement Speed by 40% for 2.5 seconds. (30% for ranged attacks)

i do this item because it gives a nice amount of MR and because of his passive ability that gives +1 Attack Damage for every 2.5% health missing. If you would take magic damage which would leave you at less than 30% of your maximum health, you gain a shield which absorbs 400 magic damage for 5 seconds. 60 second cooldown.

the reason why i make The Bloodthirster instead of Wriggle's Lantern is because The Bloodthirster gives more damage and life steal and is that what Renekton really needs.

this is a great item because it gives armor and magic resistance but the reason why i make this is because ofm tha passive ability that Revives your Champion upon death, restoring 750 Health and 375 Mana. This effect can only occur once every 5 minutes.


this is the items that you must have in the first 8 minutes of game because with the The Brutalizer is a great item is cheep and gives cooldown reduction and armor penetration.


This items is important you have until the 20 minutes because this are the base items for my build of Renekton and with this itms you can start give some nice damage.


This is the full build and at the end of the game if you have this itms renekton is almost unstopabel because it gives nice damage and nice armor and magic resistance.


this is a nice item for Renekton because gives him damage and some atack speed and his passive albilite that for Physical attacks reduce your target's Armor by 15 for 5 seconds, (maximum 3 stacks).this make the oponents more easy to kill..this also have a nice combo it your Ruthless Predator, you will instantly get two or three stacks of The Black Cleaver debuffs on the enemy already!

this is also a great item because gives more 80 of damage and with that passive ability that gives +50% critical strike damagethis make the Infinity Edge a very nice item.

this can be use on renekton because of the Sheen this for Every time you use an ability, for 10 seconds, your next physical attack deals 100% extra base damage. 2 second cooldown. with that you can do some serius damage to your enemy's.

this item is only help full if you do it in the bigining of the game because it anly gives a few armor a few damage and a few lifesteal but is a great item for ganing some control in you lane because you can push you lane because of the active ability that Places a sight ward with 600 cast range. 3 minute cooldown..

Also a great item to do with Renekton because gives a nice armor, damage, and atack speed but really works well with Renekton because of the passive ability that On hit, deals bonus Magic Damage equal to 4% of the target's maximum health, (max. 120 versus monsters)..Works AMAZINGLY well with his Ruthless Predator, because it'll be applying three on hit effects of Madred's Bloodrazor, which is 12% of their HP plus a LOT of damage.

this item i only advice to do if you replace the Youmuu's Ghostblade because it obly gives more damage and improves your armor penetration.


Great item because gives a LOT of HP but i only advice to do this item if you do a Atma's Impaler and a Frozen Mallet.

Also a great item because gives a nice amount of armor and HP but works really good because of the passive ability that Deals 40 Magic Damage a second to nearby enemies. Range: 400

A nice item for Renekton because gives a nice amount of magic resistance have his passive ability is improve by Ruthless Predator because Your attacks deal 42 bonus magic damage and increase your magic resistance by 5 during 5 seconds (stacks up to 4 times).

Is a help full item for almost all champs because it works like Cleanse and help you to ascape from enemys hor heps you hunting them.

This is also a good item for Renekton because gives more armor and HP and improves her chasing abilities because Slows movement speeds and attack speeds of surrounding units by 35% for 2 seconds + 0.5 seconds for each 100 Armor and Magic Resist. 60 second cooldown. (500 Range)

Summoner Spells

Viabel summuner spells

This is the best summuner spell in my opinion i allways use it because is a great away to escape from ganks and to not let your oponents flee

I use Exhaust in renekton because in the first game that i play with him my oponents allways escape with low HP so i start use it instead of Ignite

This can also help renekton because when you play solo top most of the oponents are Mordekaiser, Lee Sin, Irelia, Sion, Gangplank and Sion and they can heal their hp with their abilities so if you ignite them they will only heal 50%.

This is also a good spell because makes you faster what improves your chasse abilities.
