Introduction

Whats up, dude. This is my Renekton guide. Renekton is a high-burst early game bully who, once he gets ahead, can deal massive AOE damage while being tanky enough to dive the enemy carries. I believe he is a very strong pick for the top lane with the current items. He is a pretty safe pick because, in lane, he can hold his own against even his hardest counters when played correctly. If you want a safe first pick top champion and you are good at holding an advantage, you should definitely try playing Renekton.

About Me

Me as a Person


My name is Michael. My summoner name is Drike, and I'm always looking for new friends so feel free to add me. I currently go to a technical college near Atlanta, Georgia and spend most of my free time playing video games. In high school, I wrestled and I still try to stay in shape. I am currently single (hello ladies) and I am a cutie pie.

Me as a League Player


I began playing League of Legends in summer of 2013. S3 I got Silver 4, but this season my goal is Diamond. I am currently Plat 4.

I'm like to initiate fights, so usually I have to play tanky champions. I do not play any ranged champions at all (literally none), so ADC is my worst role. My best roles are top and support. My favorite top laners are: Renekton, and Jax. My favorite supports are: Leona and Alistar.

Me as a Renetkon Player


When I first started playing League, I looked at the pictures of all of the champions and I knew Renekton was the guy for me. I have been playing Renekton on and off since I first started playing League, and he has treated me great. He is currently my favorite top laner, and when I have to first pick top I will choose Renekton almost every time.

Fury

As you may have noticed, Renekton does not use mana. Instead, he has a resource called Fury. This has many implications. First of all, as a champion without mana and as an AD caster, CDR is a very good stat on Renekton. Second, you have to learn how to play around your fury. Fury management is one of the key factors that separates good Renektons from bad ones.

So, how does it work? Fury works like this. You can cast your skills with our without Fury. Whenever you deal damage with a basic attack or with your Q, you gain Fury. Whenever you cast Q, W, or your 2nd E, IF you have 50 or more Fury, you consume 50 Fury upon cast, and that ability is empowered. Basically, Q does 50% more damage and heals triple as much, W hits 3 times instead of 2 and the stun duration is doubled (from .75 to 1.5 seconds), and the 2nd E deals 50% more damage while also shredding a percentage of armor. In lane, you almost never want to waste fury empowered abilities on minions. Save your fury for trading.

Use Fury empowered Cull the Meek when:
    You are surrounded by minions
    You are surrounded by champions
    You are about to die and desperately need as much healing as possible
Use Fury empowered Ruthless Predator when:
    You need the longer stun duration
Use Fury empowered Dice when you have no other choice. Typically you want to save your fury for one of your other 2 abilities.

Laning

Laning is Renekton's strongest phase of the game. Level 1, just trade with Q, or AA -> Q. Level 2, you can trade with AA -> E -> AA -> Q -> AA -> E. Once you get your stun, you have a lot of trading options at your disposal. Just be sure to auto in-between your skills to deal the most damage possible.

Crescent

Crescent is an incredibly important active for Renekton. His W, Ruthless Predator, suppresses himself for a short period of time. By casting cresccent, you can cancel this animation, making Tiamat an incredible buy for Renekton.
