Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This Guide is subject to change as it is new and I am open to constructive criticism as to what people want to see.
*Will be updated periodically.
So I basically picked around at different Renekton builds and then came up with this setup on my own.
I will add more info/detail later on, or if people want it, but pretty much if you follow the build order and you're able to Slice and then Dice back out if you need to you should not get killed very often.
My first game with this build I went: 14/2/20, and was able to fight effectively with the combined use of Sunfire Cape+Dominus AoE damage (helpful for assists or last hitting Champions/Creeps) when jumping into team fights. Dominus is also nice because of the Health boost it gives you (which can save you if you are low early game and you pop it) which after finishing the build should land you somewhere around 5k+ HP during Dominus' duration.
I got Doran's Shield for the early bulk to his HP which Renekton needs to survive early in lane. (Doran's Blade is optional but more risky)
Boots--->Ionian's because Cooldown Reduction can be a lifesaver, e.g., your stun comes back up, or Cull the Meek comes back up when you desperately need a heal.
I chose to get Sunfire Cape early on because the AoE effect will help with minion kills, as well as in any team-fights or ganks. Not to mention the nice armor/health boost. This item also goes well with 'Dominus', Renekton's Ultimate, because of the constant AoE damage from both.
Frozen Mallet next because of the needed AD/HP boost + the slow which is huge for Renekton since he typically is slower than other champions from my experience.
The Brutalizer, this item is what Renekton is about, it has AD/CDR, and ArP. (this builds into Youmuu's Ghostblade later)
Atma's Impaler- The armor helps with fighting other AD champs, the crit is an OK addition, but more importantly the 2% damage you gain from your max HP is really nice.
Warmog's Armor- It gives Renekton that mid-late game added bulk and survivability he will need, and this paired with Atma's Impaler gives you a decent boost to your AD.
*By now you should have sold the Doran's Blade to make room*
Youmuu's Ghostblade- Ok finishing off this awesome build balanced with surviving and dealing out insane team-fight damage, you get this Blade. The AD, the Crit, the CDR, the ArP is all amazing for Renekton. The 'Activate' with this item is nice as well, granting 20% Movement Speed and 50% Attack Speed; which can help chase down runners, or just burn someone down even faster.
