Summoner Spells Back to Top

Flash Ignite are like the most common Summoners you can start with. If you are used to play with Ghost instead of Flash its good aswell on Renekton.


Since the meta changed in League I would recommend you to play with Teleport, because you can push and still be able to participate in teamfights.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

I go with Grasp of the Undying Masteries most of the time. It makes you really tanky and be able to trade and outsustain your enemy toplaner.


Vampirism: +2% Lifesteal and Spell Vamp
Runic Armor: Shields, healing, regeneration and lifesteal on you are 8% stronger

So these two masteries work pretty good together and let you outsustain your enemy.

Against melee Top Laner I always start with Q and then E! Renekton has so much early pressure, so most of the times the enemy Jungler will come Top to give his Top laner the Firstblood, thats why I like to go with E as second.

If you know your Jungler is on his way aswell better go W for the Stun/Damage.

Against ranged Top laner start with Q and then E to Slice in AA him/her then Q then AA and dice back.

But No matter against which kind of Top you play, always max. your Q for sustain.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I would recommend you to start with Dorans Blade in the new Meta.

Core Items

    These are the core Items I like to build. Of course it depends if the enemy has more Ap ratio Champs, I build more MR. If they have more Ad ratio, I build more Armor.

Situational Items

    Good if you are Against Double AP.
    Good against AD heavy teams.

I recommend always to build Sunfire on Renekton, because it deals so much AOE Damage with his Ultimate.

VS

Aatrox

Medium
266_64.png- Pretty much even lane. Wait for ganks and try to outtrade him with E-AA-W-AA-Q-AA-E. Do not try to fight him with AA only, YOU WILL LOSE !

Start with 1054_32.png or 1006_32.png + 5 2003_32.png for sustain.

VS

Akali

Easy
84_64.png - Probably the easiest lane Renek can have. You have so much early pressure against an Akali while she has literally nothing. Try to harass her whenever you can.

You can start with 1006_32.png + potions or you go all in and start with 2037_32.png


VS

Cho'Gath

Easy
31_64.png - Cho'Gath is pretty weak early game ! Harras and force him to use his abilities to farm under his turrets. 

Important against Cho'Gath: Dodge his Q !

Do not underestimate his silence + OM NOM NOM!!

1054_32.png- Start with Dorans shield against him

VS

Darius

Medium
122_64.png - This Lane is hard because he pretty much outtrades you early and late. Just Farm behind Turrets and wait untill your Jungler shows up!

3143_32.png +3068_32.png will safe your ass against Darius.

1054_32.png- as starting Item!

VS

Diana

Easy
131_64.png - If someone picks Diana against you, she might be pretty good or just insane ! You outtrade her and she can't farm because she is melee. So if she tries to lasthit with AA just harass her ! Force her to farm under Turret aswell to lose mana.

3065_32.png +3155_32.png good against her

Starting item as you prefer!

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Dr. Mundo is really weak pre 6 so try to deny his farm as good as you can ! Trade whenever you can.Hydra- 3074_32.png to outpush him and then build tank only !


remember that its really hard to kill mundo without ignite after lvl 6 !


VS

Elise

Medium
60_64.png- If you are against Elise, outpush the Lane early and Force her to Farm under her Turret so she loses Farm. Try to E in AA her stun her Q and then E back and  do it over and over again. Most important thing is to dodge her E.

3155_32.png - This item is very important against Elise !
1006_32.png -2003_32.png good start against her. 5 pots because she will poke your early game

VS

Fiora

Easy
114_64.png - Do not fight her when her W(Riposte) is active ! You win the trades against Fiora after she wastes her W. Try to harass or even kill her lvl 2-3 with your W + Fury.

3068_32.png - Sunfire is the best choice on Renekton against melee Bruiser.

VS

Gangplank

Medium
41_64.png - GP is annoying because of his passive which slows movement and his W counters your STUN! 

What to do against GP in lane? You basically just wait for your Cooldowns and use the Combo I mention in my Guide. 

3074_32.png - to outpush and outdamage him in every situation

VS

Garen

Medium
86_64.png- This Lane is not hard for Renekton players. You just wait for your Abilities and harass him! After that just farm, till you Abilities are up again. 

Care if you are LOW HP he will Silence you and try to ULT and you won't be able to use your ULT because you'll be silenced. 

1054_32.png - good starting item against garen, he will deal like no damage at all 


VS

Gnar

Hard

I only had a few games against Gnar. From what i've seen is like this champ is pretty annoying because of his ranged poke early and the ability to jump away. When he is getting big, you should avoid to fight against big gnar! He is going to hurt you.

 Start with 1054_32.png and try to catch him with your dash + stun(rage).. AA + Q and dash back.
This matchup seemed pretty hard for me because gnars boomerang has really low cd and deals tons of damage . 3078_32.png <.< 

VS

Irelia

Medium
39_64.png - skillbased matchup but renekton beats her early lanephase so try to outpush her and force her to lasthit with her Q. once she is oom you'll have a happy and easy lane against her. rush 3077_32.png to even  outpush her more, and you can trade pretty well with this item aswel against irelia.

1054_32.png - as starting item against irelia

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Jarvan has a lot of dmg early, but you're Renekton... you have more sustain than he has and renekton does a lot of damage early with his W ability. try to poke him with your Q  early and once you hit lvl 2 try to all in with fury + W, AA + Q + AA... This matchup seemed pretty easy for me in the early stage of the game.


the good thing about renekton is that you can slice out of jarvans Ultimate.

start with 1055_32.png if you want to play aggressive.. 1074_32.png if you want to play more passive.

VS

Jax

Easy
24_64.png - Jax is weak early and thats where Renekton shines ! :) If he tries to engage with his E + Jump. Just slice away and laugh at Jax, then you can dice back and use your combo to outdamage him because he will have nothing left to trade with you.

when you hit 6 before he does try to all in him, but be careful when you try to dive this biatch . his stun can be painful

3068_32.png - good item against melees

VS

Jayce

Hard
126_64.png - Hard Lane because he outtrades you and is ranged. When you E in he will just knock you back and then kite you. Wait for your Jungler to come and destroy him. Jayce is pretty squishy so when your Jungler appears you will easily kill him. 

In lane phase try to abuse the brushes.

3068_32.png - recommended 

VS

Katarina

Medium
55_64.png - haven't played for a while against katarina top. 

all you need to know is that you beat her early because her abilites deals low damage to you and you can trade her whenever you want.

but if shes a good katarina shell just rush 3191_32.png +3068_32.png and be tanky enough to trade you . so try to stomp her early till she gets useless !

VS

Kayle

Hard
10_64.png - I hate to play against this champion, her abilities slows you and you cant outdamage or even outpush her because her early power is too much for renekton.

so what if the enemy picks kayle against you? I would recommend to sit under your turret and wait for your jungler to appear .
 
its okay if you lose cs while lasthitting under your turret.

1006_32.png +2003_32.png very important because you need the sustain against kayle

VS

Kennen

Hard
85_64.png - Kennen is Pretty annoying. He will poke you early so Try to hide in Brushes and last hit with your Q. When you are LVL 3 ! You can try to harass him with your full combo. Try to dodge Kennen's Q. Kennen is Squishy so when your Jungler comes you can Easily Kill him.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy
121_64.png- Squishy Kha'Zix , you outtrade him at LvL 2 ! Wait for your fury to come up and W/AA him. He will lose so much Hp that you can prevent him from farming!


VS

Lee Sin

Medium
64_64.png - Lee Sin will outtrade you once he hits his Q. Try to dodge his Q whenever you can.
His W lifesteal is pretty annoying aswel, wait for ganks and kill this blind Monk.

he will rush 3077_32.png , so what you gonna do ? you rush it aswell!  

VS

Lissandra

Hard
127_64.png - Oh Lord, Build MR and wait for your Jungler to appear. She can kite, slow and freeze you whats pretty annoying.

3111_32.png- you will need it against her 

3065_32.png is op atm !

VS

Malphite

Easy
54_64.png - If you are against a Malphite just outpush him Early and Force him to Farm behind his turret. He will lose so much Mana trying to Farm up that you will have a Early lane. 

But Care if Malphite hits LVL 6 the Enemy Jungler will Probably Camp you.

VS

Nasus

Medium
75_64.png - Nasus will not escape me Forever!! 

Try to outpush Nasus early and tell your jungler to come ASAP, once his Q is stacked he will sh*t on you. 

rush 3074_32.png to outpush him .

VS

Nidalee

Medium
76_64.png - Try to force her to farm under the turret early.  DODGE her Q, if you cant dodge by moving then use you E ability. You can outtrade her by slice in and do your combo and dice out.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

This is really annoying as Renekton... most of the pantheon players start with 2041_32.png so they'll spam their Q and poke you down. Then he has his block ability aswell, which is aweful to fight against. play really passive against him early. go back once you are low on health because panth can towerdive pretty easy with his block. wait for your jungler to appear and shut him down. build armor and be the tank for your team in mid game.


1054_32.png + 3068_32.png  works fine against 80_64.png

VS

Quinn

Hard
133_64.png - Haven't played against her yet. But I would recommend to abuse the Bushes and just lasthit under the turret. 3143_32.png <---- Get this !

VS

Rengar

Medium
107_64.png - He can OS you once he hits lvl 6! Try to stomp his lane early with your jungler.

I would recommend to get ARMOR ASAP. 3068_32.png +3143_32.png

VS

Riven

Easy
92_64.png - since the changes happened to renek, you can outtrade her very well!

you outdamage her all the way. 

renek just wins this matchup

VS

Rumble

Hard
68_64.png - pretty annoying to lane against rumble as renekton!

His Q ability (Flamespitter) has like no cooldowns and no costs and deals tons of damage to renekton if he stays in it for too long. 

His E slows you like crazy.

You lane really carefully against Rumble and wait for your jungler to appear, do not try to 1v1 him because he outtrades you. Even if your jungler appears care to not die against his ultimate. 

rush 3065_32.png against this yordle monster ! i do not recommend to build damage against rumble.

VS

Shen

Medium
98_64.png - you beat him early till he gets his sunfire ! then he will be pretty annoying because he gets no damage and beats you down with the 3068_32.png proc and his Q. 

how to play against him: you outdamage and outpush him in early levels. so try to put everything you have for your early game to stomp him. ask your jungler to come early so you can firstblood him while he is weak.

A good trick against Shen is , if you see him ult to bot lane, try to slice into him and use your stun so he cant help bot, and dice back after you stunned him.


VS

Shyvana

Medium

Be aware of Shyvanas damage!! When she hits you with her Flame Breath dont try to trade with her. Wait for her w to go off and then go in and do your damage combo.. you should be fine early if you dont do stupid engages on her. 


She deals a lot of magic damage so armor won't help a lot. Wait for ganks and kill her with the help of your jungler.

 

VS

Singed

Easy
27_64.png - You can outtrade him Early. Just push more then he does with building Tiamat ! But care to not get Flung onto his Turret !

3074_32.png +3068_32.png to outpush him !

VS

Teemo

Hard
17_64.png - Jungler will sit your lane because everyone hates TEEMO! Just kidding, try to slice into him and W-AA-Q-AA and dice back. Then wait for it again. Abuse the brushes but care for his lvl 6 shrooms - he likes to put some of those into the lane brushes.

If they build squishy AP - u can literally oneshot him with your combo.
If he is building AD/Tank Teemo rather wait for ganks and try to lasthit under the turret.
against AP - 3065_32.png + 3155_32.png
against AD -3143_32.png +3068_32.png

VS

Trundle

Easy
48_64.png - Time to TROLL!!! you beat and outtrade him on lane, if he bites you wait for the debuff to disappear and engage on him afterwards. do the combo which i already showed you on my guide. try to not fight him in his frozen domain (where he gets movement speed, atk speed and increased healing. 

VS

Tryndamere

Medium
23_64.png - He can kill you lvl 1 so be carefull. 

Otherwise u can kill tryn really easy pre 6.. i wouldnt recommend to build a lot of defensive items against tryn. I like to build damage items against this lane bully

VS

Udyr

Hard
77_64.png - Udyr will outdamage, outpush and outrun you. Do not try to fight him 1v1 ! Wait for the jungler to come and kill him.

1054_32.png- is a good starting item. i like to rush 3068_32.png against this guy, you will leak damage but its okay because you can tank everything once you have sunfire + ult

VS

Vladimir

Medium
8_64.png - You can outtrade him early on. So try to harass him and Outpush him! After LvL 9 He will get pretty annoying because his Q as literally no Cooldown anymore. 

I recommend to Build Hexdringer against Vladimir.

3155_32.png - against his ult ! 

VS

Volibear

Medium

Volibear is pretty weak early, just care for his bite. if he rans fast to you, go back and engage after he flipped a minion. do not towerdive him early because of his passive where he gets a lot of health back.. once it is on cooldown you can pretty much sh*t on him ... renekton has way more sustain than voli has


get armor penetration asap 3134_32.png <---- 

VS

Wukong

Easy
62_64.png - LOL, just eat that Monkey plxkkthx

You outtrade him if he tries to jump on you. 

PLEASE MONKEY GO HOME

rush 3077_32.png to even beat him more . thanks

VS

Yorick

Medium
83_64.png - Nothing Counters Yorick!!!

So Try to Farm only against him and wait for the Junglerganks!

3065_32.png +3068_32.png against yorick

VS

Zac

Easy
154_64.png - This lane is easy for Renekton! You push him and while you lasthit with your Q ability you try to hit him aswell. push him under his turret but care for enemy jungler, Zac has good CC to lock you down.

3074_32.png - I rush Hydra most of the time against Zac

VS

Zed

Easy
238_64.png - This guy is weak early game! You can outtrade and outpush him as you want to. Your lvl 6 beats his lvl 6 aswell. As long as the enemy jungler doesnt show of, you should be totally fine against Zed,

3068_32.png - get sunfire against him

Introduction! Back to Top

Hello and welcome to my Renekton Guide ! My name is Absorblol and I am a Diamond 1 Renekton player with 800+  Renekton Games. I was one of the highest Renekton Players in S3 EUW and I hope you will enjoy reading my Guide.

First of all I want to tell you why i like to Play Renekton.

I was a Silver Player at Season 2 who played Support Mainly. I really couldn't get higher then Silver in that Season. So I said to myself, when I want to get higher I need to start playing another role then Support. So I tried different Lanes and decided the Top Lane(Island). Where you play 1v1 most of the Time. OK the Lane was chosen, but which Champion to Main? I played a lot of Singed and I think this Champion is so much FUN but wasn't the right for me. Then I saw this one Video on the Internet where this Renekton outplayed like 2-3 People and I thought YESSS thats the Champion I want to play. 

Now I hope I can inspire a lot of People to main Renekton !



D1.png


RENEKTRON.png

So if you want to climb the Elo Ladders ! Stop raging on others.. Try to motivate your mates and work on your playstyle and mechanics. If you are on a losing Streak stop playing for 30-60 minutes and try to calm down first before you start to queue again.

Pros and Cons Back to Top

Pros

- He has No Mana
- Sustain and Fast Wave Clear
- Slice and Dice
- Strong Lane Phase
- High Burst 
- Strong ULT


Cons


- Falls of Late Game
- Can only fight with his Abilities 

Masteries Back to Top

RENEKTON.png

I recommend this Masteries to play with when you are going to play as Renekton.
Grasp of the undying just fits too good on renekton.


renekton 2.png

If you don't want to Play with defensive masteries, you can play another fun masteries I tried and really enjoyed. Thunderlord's is a lot of burst and really fun to play. 
I would recommend only to choose these Masteries when you know you can dominate the Lane, this is for more experianced renekton player.

Runes Back to Top

RENEK RUNES.png

These are the Runes I like to run when playing Renekton. You have the AD For Bursting the Enemy's Down. The Armor and MR for the Sustain in Laning Phase. You also can Run ArmorPen in reds instead of AD, Cdr in blue if there is no AP champ in the enemy team.


Skillorder Back to Top

renekton build.png


Like I mentioned earlier Q is good against almost every Top laner to start with. 

First max. your Q because it allows you to clear Waves faster, large Damage and a good amount of heal.

Then maxing E is probably the best to lower the Cooldown of it. You need E for escaping Or engaging in Teamfights/Ganks etc. besides that it deals a decent amount of Damage.



Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png14.png

Why Flash/Ignite?



4.png - Flash is the best for escaping or for gapclosing. You can slice into enemy minions Flash and then dice  to gapclose to the enemy. Or do the same to escape.


14.png- Ignite is used to finish off an enemy or for extending a trade to the point of killing them.



___________________________________________________________________________________________




Alternative Summoners



6.png - Ghost is good for chasing down the enemies or rather escaping in fights. Use the power to run through Minions while running away with Ghost.


12.png - If you want to play as splitpusher and still be in teamfights take Teleport. I would recommend to TP Botlane and try to get your ADCarry some Kills.


21.png - you only run barrier because your name is ABSORB ;) (JK, don't take it)

Skills Back to Top

Skills 
passive1.png


Your Autoattacks and Skill gain Fury! Try to AA a lot to get Fury and get used how to play with your fury.



QQ.png


Explanation:

Clear Waves with it, good harras damage and low cooldowns. It is basically your main damage and the best way to trade and outsustain your enemy.




WW.png


Explanation:


The only CC Renekton has ! Deals good damage with Fury early game to dominate the lane and stuns for 0,75 seconds without fury and 1,5 with fury.




EE.png


Explanation: 

Good for escaping or gapclosing. Reduces Armor with Fury, So use it wisely against Tanks.





RR.png



Explanation:


His Ultimate is good for baiting or ulting into Teamfights and good Damage.
You gain Health , deal magic damage per second and gain 5 Fury per second. I like to combine Sunfire with Ultimate for good magic damage aswell.



How to Play Renekton ! Back to Top

So How do you fight as Renekton?

The thing about Renekton is that he is not a strong autoattack Champion! So how do you output the most damage with Renekton.

So basically you E+AA+W+AA+Q+AA+E the Enemy. I know it maybe sounds difficult but if you practice it you'll see how amazing and how much damage you can deal with it. So what does that combo do. You Slice into your Enemy to get into Autoattack Range, try to hit the Enemy with your E aswell. Autoattack him after you Sliced in then use your W to stun the Enemy, AA after that is Important to gain Fury. After that you can use your Q to get some Health and Damage output, Try to hit him with an AA again and E behind your Minions. When you want to fight an Enemy , try to use your Q while staying near Minions to gain even more Health from your Ability.

Early Game:


You are an early BEAST! So try to stomp the Lane and get the Attention of the Enemy Jungler. You need to ward the Jungle pretty well, so you can escape the ganks or bait him to stay there for a while. When the Enemy Jungler is Top, tell your Team to get Dragon or Bot/Mid Turret for a global lead. What I like to do is pushing as much as I can and get early Turrets. When you get an early advantage on your Lane you can go gank Bot to feed your ADC. 



Mid Game:

Mid Game is rather when Teamfights happen or if your Team is too weak for teamfighting, renektons job is to splitpush as much as he can. With hydra + sunfire + Q the waveclear is huge ! Ward the jungle before splitpushing so you can see when enemys appear.
When Teamfights happen you need to be there and all in the enemy Carries or rather protect yours, it depends a lot on the Enemy Setup. When they have Assasins like Kha'zhix or Zed try to stun them and protect your Carries somehow. You deal massive AOE Damage with Ult+Sunfire+ Hydra.


Late Game:


I know Everyone says Renekton's Late game is bad or whatever. But you can Splitpush Really really fast with Hydra + Sunfire + Q. So Try to push the Lanes fast and tell your Team to Siege Turrets. Because of Renektons E + Flash/Ghost you can easily Escape when 1 or 2 Of the Enemy Team appears. In Teamfights you just ALL IN the Enemy Team and Deal Tons of Damage with your massive AOE. When the enemys are fed try to peel for your carries ! Stay near them and stun the enemy to let your carries escape! 



Getting Tower dived as Renekton !


How to Firstblood as Renekton, Poke early with your Q ability and then kill the enemy with Fury (W).



1v3 as Renekton after you stomp the Lane, nothing can Stop you.



More Clips Coming Soon..
