Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png  You know why.

12.png I use this 95% of my games, because the it is just so good. (e.g.: for helping out botlane)

14.png Take this if you are sure that you are going to snowball the game hard.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Ferocity:

Fury vs Sorcery: You are mostly using Spells over Autoattacks, sooo....

Double Edged Sword vs Feast vs Expose Weakness: Double Edged sword is without a doubt the best thing to get. You are a sololaner so you don't need Expose Weakness and your sustain is very good anyways so you don't really need Feast either.

Vampirism vs Natural Talent: Take Vampirism. Even though it's just 2%, early lifesteal is so awesome to have, especially with Renekton. Also you lifesteal off your renektonpreexecute.png so thats pretty nice.

Bounty Hunter vs Oppressor: Be confident! If you play it well and you don't have a horrible lane like Jayce or Kindred, you can be confident and stomp your lane to snowball and kill everyone at least once. If you get countered very hard though or it's an enemy champion that tilts you pretty hard you might better just take Oppressor.

The last 2 ones are pretty obvious.

Resolve:

Recovery vs Unyielding: You don't need 2.0 HP per 5 seconds.. Your renektoncleave.png gives you enough sustain and you are probably going to build some Armor and Magic Resist later on anyways except when you are stomping HARD, so that's the way to go.

Explorer vs Tough Skin: Explorer is only good for junglers and supports, so don't take that!

Runic Armor vs Veteran's Scars: Honestly, 45 HP are nothing! Just go with the Runic Armor because you are a sustain based Tank/Offtank/Carry/Whatever.

Insight vs Perseverance: Same thing as with Feast and Recovery. You don't need the extra sustain.

Why Fervor of Battle instead of Grasp?

Because its way stronger for snowballing, duh.

How you spend your Skill-Points is situational but in the most cases it is like this: renektonreignofthetyrant.png>renektoncleave.png>renektonpreexecute.png>renektonsliceanddice.png

The reason for this is that renektoncleave.png is your most important Ability making you the bully you are, as its heal, damage and Range are just really good. Take and max  renektonpreexecute.png  over renektonsliceanddice.png because you want to - you guessed it - snowball, and the damage on renektonpreexecute.png is just INSANE.

IF YOU ARE GETTING EXTREMELY AHEAD/STOMPING YOUR LANE COMPLETELY!

There is another option, which is very cocky, but it works so well if you are destroying your lane opponent.

If you kill your laner lvl 2 and then after he returns you kill him again and you think you can kill him more often, you can max your renektonpreexecute.png first, do maximize your early damage output to snowball extremely hard! But as I said: Only do this if you are STOMPING

VS

Aatrox

Medium

When he wants to aatroxQ.png away you can just cancel it with renektonpreexecute.png

Another option is torenektonsliceanddice.png through him when he uses aatroxQ.png
You can bully him pretty hard when you go in with renektonsliceanddice.png,AA,renektonpreexecute.png AA Reset,renektoncleave.png and renektonsliceanddice.png out.
But he still has his aatroxW.png providing him alot of heal, so do not underaestimate him.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

This guy has NO CHANCE against you. When he tries to feast.png you, you can simply renektonreignofthetyrant.png

Your renektoncleave.png is giving you enough sustain to bully him out of lane and outtrade him.
You can dodge his rupture.png very easy, using yourrenektonsliceanddice.png to dash to him or to minions to catch him offguard.
Always get 3065.png first unless you go 3-0 in 10 Minutes.

VS

Darius

Easy

You can avoid his dariuscleave.png heal so easy! Your kit is perfect for laning again this guy. Seriously. If you can get this matchup, take it. Grab a 3068.png or 3748.png depending on whether you stomp this lane or not. Almost only empower your renektoncleave.png, as you can outsustain him with this skill very nice.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Wreck him early on and be sure to pick up 14.png AND tell your ADC to get 3033.png. That item is Broken.


VS

Ekko

Medium

He can beat you. But it's more of an skill-matchup. Try to avoid his ekkoW.png with your renektonsliceanddice.png and try dodging his ekkoQ.png.

VS

Fiora

Easy

Bait her fiorariposte.png out and you'll be fine. 

[General tip against her: Try to cover the Vitals with a wall of possible to reduce her dps and healing.]

VS

Galio

Easy

When he is trying to use his galioidolofdurand.png, just activate renektonpreexecute.png, so galioidolofdurand.png will be interupted immediately.

Dodge his  galioresolutesmite.png with renektonsliceanddice.png
When his galiobulwark.png is active, just wait it out, so he won't heal himself.
His passive is useless against you.
Always get 3065.png no matter what.

VS

Garen

Medium

The only things that could annoy you are his garenpassive.png,garenslash3.png and garencommand.png. If you don't know Garen, here is a short explaination. garenpassive.png increases his health regeneration ridiciously high when he is out of combat for 6 seconds. garenslash3.png Increases his Movement-Speed, Removes all slows and makes his next Basic Attack deal Bonus Damage and Silence you for 1,5 seconds. garencommand.png Increases his Armor and Magic Resist passively and reduces the damage he takes by 30% if he activates it. These Three skills provide him good Sustain, Defensive Stats and prevent you from using your Skills. But you can win this lane if you follow my hints: 

  1. When you see that his blade is shining and he jumps when attacking you, activate renektonpreexecute.png, so he can't hit you while you are silenced from his garenslash3.png.
  2. When engaging, you gotta have at least 45 Fury so you can decrease his Armor with your empowered renektonsliceanddice.png. This skill makes him a little bit squishier.
  3. Hold renektonreignofthetyrant.png until he is using garenjustice.png, so the damage of garenjustice.png is decreased and you can turn the fight.
  4. When fighting, kite him a little bit towards your tower, so he has a longer way back to his tower when you turn the fight with your Ultimate.

VS

Gnar

Medium

It's a risky matchup, but it's okay. Dodge his gnarQ.pngrenektonsliceanddice.png through his Stun and When he uses gnarR.pngrenektonsliceanddice.pngaway from the wall or over the wall if possible, so you won' get stunned.

Wait his Passive out and then go all in after his Mega-Gnar is gone.

VS

Hecarim

Easy

Your sustain is better, your Damage is equal and you are tankier than him overall.

The only thing you really gotta do is bully him to force his 12.png to get back to lane, bait his 14.png and if he uses 12.png on the lane to gank somewhere just use your renektonpreexecute.png.
It's a decent matchup, if you play it right.

VS

Illaoi

Medium

Tentacle-Samaaaaa.. If you dodge her illaoiE.png, trade. She runs oom insanely quick if she is fighting alot, but be aware of her healing and her damage. Her illaoiQ.png hurts.

VS

Irelia

Easy

It's very easy. You out-sustain her with renektoncleave.png, have enough mobility to get away with renektonsliceanddice.png and she can't deal with your kit in general.

All in her at lvl 2 or 3, renektoncleave.png her and her nearby minions for the maximum heal, avoid minion aggro and you are good to go.
3143.png should be your first item.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

He has no sustain, he is too squishy for you and you can get out of his jarvanivcataclysm.png with your renektonsliceanddice.png, so he can't hold you anywhere. Avoid getting knocked up by his jarvanivdemacianstandard.pngjarvanivdragonstrike.png Combo, and he has nothing left in his kit to damage you.

All in at lvl 2, 3 or 6.
Take 3068.png first.

VS

Jayce

Hard
126.png is one of these Ranged Toplaners, you just can't deal with.
You can't renektonsliceanddice.png on him, because he will jayceE.png you back away, he can poke you with his Ranged Q. So just try to farm under turret, Dodge his Q and wait for a good opportunity to 12.png-Gank bot.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

His nulllance.png is literally useless against you. You can't do anything wrong in this matchup, except for one thing. DO NOT DIVE HIM. NEVER.

Bully him as hard as you can in the early game.
Take 3065.png first and he has nothing against you.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Kill him at Level 2-5, thats your best chance to win your lane! If you cannot do that, just look out for 12.png opportunities on botlane. If you win the lane or the lane is even, get Hexdrinker, if you lose, get Spirit Visage. [Sorry that i didnt use the icons, but lolking seems to be kinda broken RN lol]

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

[Who plays that?] Easy lane. Bend him over.

VS

Kindred

Medium

[Who the f*ck plays Kindred top?] She is really hard to deal with. Her kindredpassive.png makes her a complete tank killer! She outranges you, can always escape with her kindredW.png + kindredQ.png, she can kite you very well with all of her skills and she will get strong even if you win your lane, because she can simply just clear the camps she has a kindredpassive.png mark on to get her percent health damage. Avoid this matchup. 

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

[Who plays this?] Renekton loves asian food.

VS

Lissandra

Hard

Don't fight her.. UNLESS her lissandraW.png AND lissandraR.png aren't up, because that stuff counters you. Go in with your renektonsliceanddice.png +  renektoncleave.png Cancel, W (+Hydra if you have it) her and E out, if you get an opportunity.

VS

Lulu

Medium

Try dodging her luluq.png and trade with her when lulue.png and/or luluw.png are down. Try Cheesing her at lvl 2 or 3.

VS

Malphite

Easy

This guy can't sustain at all. His mana costs are insane, his armor may be annoying, but 3071.png could help out with this. You can break his malphitepassive.png shield with easy, using your main harrassing combo. If you lose because of any reason against him, go for 3065.png.

VS

Nasus

Easy

You can deny his farm in the early game soooo good. Just try to poke him all the time and try making him use his wither.png to waste his mana. If he is above 150 Stacks, begin to be more careful with him and grab a 3068.png. You should win this lane and pressure as long as possible, but always keep an eye on toplane, when you are grouping, because he can push very good.

VS

Olaf

Medium

Trade with him at lvl 2-5, that are your best chances. 

VS

Pantheon

Medium

Just make sure your renektonpreexecute.png wont get blocked by his pantheonpassive.png and you will be fine. His pantheon_leapbash.png also instantly refreshes his pantheonpassive.png so keep that in mind when trading with him. He runs oom quick though.

VS

Poppy

Easy

It's an easier matchup that everyone thinks. Just dont renektonsliceanddice.png when she is using her poppyparagonofdemacia.png and there you go, you basically won.

VS

Quinn

Hard

Another ugly ranger. Same thing as with Jayce.

VS

Rammus

Hard

He is too tanky for you to kill, avoid this lane and try to kill the enemy botlane with tp every time possible.

VS

Rengar

Easy

[Who plays this?] Renekton is eating pussy all day.

VS

Riven

Easy

ez lol. I actually main Riven and Renekton and i can say for sure: Renekton > Riven. ALWAYS, unless you are playing without a Keyboard. Try to deny her trade combo where she uses her third riventricleave.png, then stuns you with rivenmartyr.png, Autoattacks you and then rivenfeint.png's away, because thats her only way to trade you.

VS

Rumble

Medium

You outsustain him but his damage is pretty insane right now. Thats a pure skill matchup.

VS

Ryze

Medium

MEH. I dont know tbh, noone plays him toplane.

VS

Shen

Medium

VS

Shyvana

Easy

VS

Singed

Medium

VS

Sion

Easy

VS

Swain

Hard

VS

Teemo

Medium

VS

Trundle

Hard

A good Trundle will annoy the fck out of you early on. Ask your jungler for an early gank and you will be fine, but otherwise better dont try to fight him without your renektonreignofthetyrant.png and >75 Fury

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

VS

Urgot

Hard

[Who plays him?????} He hurts alot, he can kite and he is tanky, BUT before he has his Tear he runs oom quick.

VS

Vladimir

Hard

Oh boy just leave in champselect or hide underneath your turret and go Hexdrinker first item.

Harassing Back to Top

Your main harassing Combo is just like this: 


renektonsliceanddice.png (make sure you hit the enemy Champion or at least a Minion) -> AA -> renektonpreexecute.png instant AA-Reset -> renektoncleave.png ->renektonsliceanddice.png out.

If you know you can do some more damage and the jungler is not around, you can go even deeper with your second renektonsliceanddice.png and AA the enemy a few more times for the maximum damage output.

When to use your Fury for which Ability will be explained in the next Section.

Using your Fury correctly Back to Top

Level 1 - 2:


Save your Fury at Level 1 and be sure to have at least 45 Fury when you reach Level 2 so you can go all in on your enemy. Use your Fury for your renektonpreexecute.png because it will deal so much damage.

Level 3 - 5:

This is where you will have the choice if you use your renektoncleave.png or renektonpreexecute.png. If you have ~25% and the enemy has ~50% health, you are fighting use your renektoncleave.png, but if you are sure you can kill your enemy with a renektonpreexecute.png and an Autoattack and maybe even an renektoncleave.png directly after your renektonpreexecute.png, use your renektonpreexecute.png. (Holy shit i hope im not confusing you with the icons, please tell me in the comments >,.<)

Level 6:

Now is your time to shine. Try to save up to 85 Fury or something like that to go all in on your enemy with your Ultimate. Use your first 50 Fury for your renektonpreexecute.png and the following 50 for your renektoncleave.png.

Level 7 - 15:

Now you really have decide on your own, whether you want to have renektonpreexecute.png to deal 3x the damage and stun for 1.5 seconds instead of 0.75 or if you want your renektoncleave.png to triple the damage and healing.

Level 16 - 18:

It's actually almost still the same, BUT now, if you happen to be a heavy AD team and you see the opportunity to hit ~3 enemies or more within a teamfight with it, use your renektonsliceanddice.png. The reason why you only do this in the late game is that before that the other 2 skills are just better and the enemy now has stacked some armor. And now that you actually take points in your renektonsliceanddice.png it also shreds more armor and it will actually be worth for your team. But still, it's situational.
