I have recently finally found my main champions, Renekton, Nocturne, and Wukong, but mostly Renekton. I have been going solo top and farming the heck out of any lane opponent. I would dominate in lane but then when it came to a team fight and I was told to initiate I had no clue how to. Then finally I would pop Dominus and they would run away. Luckily our Nocturne then jumped onto their carry and the team fight would start. Luckily we won but I still came out of the fight having no clue how to initiate. Should I have sliced in, popped Dominus and Reckless Predator? or what?

Wait, what? Why initiate as Renekton? He can jump in, but I doubt if you can come back alive

Pretty much just Slice in likely on one of the outside targets of the enemy team being a bruiser or what not then Dice within the team on either their AP carry or AD carry Cull the Meek in the middle of their team and stunning someone. Then you can ult when needed if they start focusing on instead of running.

you will probably die, but if your team picks up 4 kills or an ace because of it, it's worth it
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

Not a viable way to play him at all, but I build him pretty tanky (offtank), and can usually take quite a beating. Slice through a minion if you can so you dice if needed, have stun up, try to hit as many targets as possible with Cull the Meek. It's pretty funny when they try to focus you down, and you outlive them by just enough since your Cull the Meek came up just in time. Pretty exhilarating.

In all honesty though you should not be initiating.
It's better if you let your actual tank initiate and then you go in and focus their carries and stay on them.

Renekton is a strange tanky DPS. Hes more like a damage mage... Because if you don't have your cooldowns you wont be doing jack. Typically in a teamfight you want to try take out the carries since you can Literally jump through the whole enemy team.

Also make sure you try out Triforce on him

No wonder you're so dependant on cooldowns. You know, to deal damage with your basic attacks you actually have to gear for it. Triforce's proc is limited by cooldowns, which is what limits your playstyle more than the champion.

On topic: Renekton is kind of a mediocre initiator, but the simplest way is to pick off an enemy that is out of position with dash-stun. Flash helps. You could also try something fancy like a flanking initiation or splitting your team for a surround. That might backfire on you though.

If you absolutely HAVE to initate, just try to pick off someone vulnerable with Flash- Slice and Dice- Ruthless Predator- Dominus (I don't care when you Q, it's a damage dealer).

Having some extra CC like Trinity Force, Frozen Mallet and/or Randuin's Omen will probably help if you manage to close the gap.
Thanks to Hoppermh for the sig!

Well Psi how would you play him?

The only way for him to fight any other Tanky DPS champ is to juke and use your CDs

What the heck?


Build him off-tank, favor the tanky side (pick things like FoN if its favorable).
You dont need a full tank to iniate...
Someone like a tanky Renekton is a good choice as a dmg dealing initiator.


F.Mallet/Atma's/Mercury's/FoN/Randuin's/F.Heart etc.

Go in using Flash/Slice 'n' dice, focus the main target and the moment the enemy team closes in on you -> Ulti.
If your team doesnt ruin it from thispoint onwards you did a good job, doesnt matter if you died or not.
Like any initiator the only problem you have to solve is WHEN to start the teamfight.
