Threats & Synergies
You beat him really hard early and your w is really important in this matchup. If no laners interrupt the 1v1 pre 6 you will win it. Most of the time after 6 too, but when he gets tank items before your lord doms purchase it'll be a little harder to win.
Probably one of the most easiest matchups for Rengar. You destroy her at virtually every level besides post 16, Even then if you surprise her she will have very little time to react to almost 1Q oneshot.
Can be a little annoying with cacoon if you dont have double W down. You can 1 shot her but her E makes it insanely difficult to get it off in time because of the amount of disruption she can have. I recommend when jumping on her to save your stacks for cocoon.
Very frustrating. Early Zhyonas rush abuser and fear is very annoying to vs. While you destroy him pre 6, post 6 is really when the matchup really hurts you. This is all dependent on how good the Fiddle is as well.
The matchup isn't that terrible for Rengar. Post 6 is rough but double W can negate a lot of her dmg unless she has cut healing then its a lot harder and it would push this matchup to even. Early she stands pretty much no chance in 1v1.
Can be the easiest matchup if he has no stacks on E, to one of the harder ones if he has full stacked E. Be wary of his stacks before going in because the armor he gets from E is really important in whether you one shot him or not.
Pre-form one of the easiest matchups. Post-form its determent on the form he goes in the game. Blue Kayn - can be easy if you get your combo off before he can get to a wall or w-r. Red Kayn is a little more difficult in the way of him building Gore-Steraks-Deaths dance which makes it almost impossible to kill him unless you have Lord Doms.
Honestly a lot of people say this is a Kha favored matchup, but I disagree. I think the champ Kha is a lot easier and better in most scenarios, but Rengar has a ton of outplay in 1v1's. Double W after Kha Q & Auto can take back a lot of dmg the Kha previously did.
If he's a good Lee Sin then you will have a huge problem with kick into q combo. E is also slightly annoying to deal with. Honestly this matchup still kind of stunts me today. If he's bad then the matchup is pretty easy. Building Edge of Night is a pretty good idea here because it prevents Lee Sin kick right after you R leap or bush leap.
Is really easy early-mid game. When she gets zhyonas in the game it becomes a little harder to face. Recommend that you wait to E her and force her zhyonas out if your unable to one shot.
Early game is easy, but late game before Lord doms purchase will be rough, but its not to terrible. The passive makes it annoying to get picks off late game.
Xin Zhao will be able to challenge your early game unless you time your W's really well. Mid to late game becomes pretty much even in the matchup you can one burst him, but if he has the right items (Steraks, Deaths dance) Its annoying to deal with.
Pretty to easy to beat. Play like it a normal matchup you can one burst him if he does any build, but the bruiser one. If he goes shieldbow for some reason go serpents. Get exe if he goes sunderer. Rush your crit items if he goes Kraken.
I can safely say I've rarely lost this matchup. Nocturne can be pretty annoying, but full crit items can make this matchup super easy. Most of the time you will kill him before his E goes off. If hes a lil tankier just sandbag till lord doms.
One of the hardest matchups in the game, Edge of Night is a must in this matchup and your crit items will be put off to a little later in the game. Even double W'ing is rough here.
Even though Rengar favors in this matchup I still struggle a little bit in this matchup. Remember to get rid of the boxes to make the 1v1 easier.
If Trundle is against tanks he's one of the best champs in the game. Against Rengar though, he's not so great. Yes the early game is rough, but once you get 3 items this matchup is pretty easy.
Easy matchup early and late. Make him waste his W with combo and sometimes if your fed enough you can get a lot of free damage in when he's in W. Don't give him to react to Q after your leap.
Has hard CC for when you leap in. Treat it like a Lesser Lee Sin match up in the way of getting edge of night 2-4th item. You will cut through her pretty easy late game. The Q for her makes it a little annoying to 1v1 so if u can double W after her Q-Auto-E auto cancel your sitting pretty in the 1v1.
A little fustrating to play into with his E-Q combo. His R can make it really hard to get to bushes. This is one of the few matchups its really strange and really dependent on who he has on his team.
Beat her ass early because thats pretty much the only time you can contest her. Sure with Lord doms you can put up some sort of fight, but her passive pretty much counters Rengar and makes it almost impossible to one shot her. Plus her items will also stand in the way of that. Just maybe sub in Eclipse this game instead of dusk.
Can be really frustrating if the Hecarim gets ahead early and gets tank items before your 3 item core. Eclipse is also not a bad idea to sub in here.
