Summoner Spells Back to Top

Not that much to add here. Exhaust or ignite if you want to cheese early on. Dont really like it tho.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Basically, take this if you want as much burst as possible...


You can also take Stormraider's Surge if you want more mobility. Its really fun to play with, since you can get in the fight and get out with the speed of lightning! It depends on the enemy teamcomp i guess.

If they have a team that perma groupes, take Stormraiders, if they have alot of splitpush and stuff that you can catch easily, take Thunderlords.

  • rengarpassive.png Unseen Predator (Passive) - Not really difficult to understand what it is. It offers a lot of outplay potential.

  • rengarQ.png Savagery (Q) - It is your main source of damage. If you have 5 Ferocity stacks, its getting empowered, deals more damage and you get increased attack speed and damage. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU CAN USE HIS Q FOR AN AUTOATTACK RESET

  • rengarW.png Battle Roar (W) - Its cool for jungling and sustaining. If you are in a fight you have do decide VERY QUICKLY if you use your 5 Ferocity stacks, for the heal (W) or for the DMG (Q) sometimes even for the root (E). But keep in mind to ALWAYS use it at the begining of a fight because you gain more MR and armor from it.

  • rengarE.png Bola Strike (E) - Nothing really special about this spell. Its a slow and with 5 stacks its a root. When you gank, always try to hit your E, so your laner can follow up. 
    If you got a bit of AD it also deals a good amount of damage.

  • rengarR.png Thrill of the Hunt (R) - Dont really know what to say about this ability. When you hit level 6 ALWAYS try to get it on cooldown, most likely for botlane because it's the easiest to snowball with. And try to go into your ultimate with 4 or 5 Ferocity stacks so you can instantly (5)Bola someone when you gank, so they cant get away from you.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    What else should you start at this point? Dhuuuuuh?

Core Items

    CDR Boots, to max out your CDR, so you have your ult up all the time. If you are already maxed out at CDR (Cause you built Black cleaver or whatever), go with Swiftness or Mercs, depending on the enemy team.
    Nothing much to say. just a thing of preferences
    Tiamat into ghostblade. The reason: Tiamat gives you more burst + an extra autoreset and ghostblade.. well.. It is probably THE best item for rengar to get. Buy it right after Tiamat. Ghostblade gives you ADDamage, Armor Pen, CDR, Attackspeed and Movespeed activ. Thats pretty much everything you need with rengar!
    Then go for an Hydra. Hydra give's you sustain and the ability to burst even more in less time.
    If you feel like the devil today, build duskblade and kill every ADC that thinks going full offensive without a single defense stat against a rengar is a good idea. But for real, it is a really good item and helps you 1 shot squishys. Dont build it when they have alot of tanks or you cant 1 shot the ADC
    Well, its not a 1 shot item, but if they have alot of splitpushers, which you need to 1v1 you can go for a cleaver. (Gives you more damage in a fight against a tank-ish champ but less 1 shot potential)
    If they have alot of armor buy L.W and upgrade it lategame. Which upgrade you take, depends on the enemy team.

Situational Items

    Okay, i love this item and if im carrying i always buy it. But it depends on your playstyle i guess.
    If im fullbuild, i sell my boots to get trinity. It allows you, to kill people with 1 Combo of your Q - Hydra - Q and still be really fast.
    If you get raped by an AD champ buy one of these (Maybe even two). Dead man's Plate is really strong atm and it even gives you movementspeed! Depending on the Situation you want this Item instead of the other 4.
    If you get raped by an AP champ buy one of these (Maybe even two).
    Getting banshee's is very beneficial, when you get stunned instantly after jumping in.
    tbh i dont like it. It gives you more 1v1 potential against champs like jax, riven etc. but it doesnt really affect your instant burst because the active isnt really that huge for bursting and the passive works with autoattacks. Its good against tanks tho-
    If you want to stay longer in a teamfight or want to take objectives by your own (mainly baron) it can be a good item. Its not the best choice to go but you CAN build it if you want a shitton of sustain in teamfights
    Reaaaally good in almost every game. Lets you make more risky plays. If you fell like, getting bursted down to fast, buy it.
    If they have alot of ap damage, buy it. It gives AD, Pen, MR, and a super strong passive. its worth!
    Can also be somewhat good, pretty much the same as B.T
    If you find yourself in a spot, where you have to jump in, kill someone and then run away because your gona get killed otherwhise, you can build like this. (AP AD Balanced) (You can maybe buy a Trinity instead of steraks or lategame sell boots for it, but it depends on the game)
    This is my typicall build, when im carrying the game(Mostly against squishys), by 1 shoting people. You can even 1 shot tanks with this. BUT if you get stunned once, you are SOOOOO dead.
    Criiiiiiiit buiiiiiilllllld Its fun, but it's waay to expensive and also you need alot of crit so it works, go for it when you are extremly fun and feel like killing the enemy adc with 1 Q

VS

Ahri

Medium

If she is level <6 and got her ult up, throw your (5) E on her when you jump in so you have time to kill her without her jumping around like a fox on LSD.

VS

Alistar

Hard

Pretty much the same as Leona.

VS

Amumu

Medium

He got a lot of CC that can be annoying teamfights

VS

Annie

Easy

Just wait until her stun is down, then 1 shot her. Care if she got Zhonyas!

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

He's not really dangerous but you cant kill him because of his tankieness and his silence - Knockup is reaaaaaally annoying.

VS

Elise

Medium

Did you ever got stunned from a spider while ulting? No? Trust me... you're gona go apeshit if this happens. BUT if you dodge it, she's an easy kill.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

A good fiddlestick will make your live difficult. He's a nightmare in teamfights, and when you jump in he can silence and fear you. If this happens you are dead.

VS

Graves

Medium

He's an asshole, if you are not fed enough, or he is fed, he can just turn and kill you.

VS

Irelia

Hard

Seriously, fuck this champ. Irelia is broken in my opinion. You cant kill her unless you are insanly fed or completly full build. But still, be very carefull because she can stun you atm you deal 1 damage and then rape you with her true dmg. The only thing that you can do against her, is shut her down early on... and just outdamage her.

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Try to ward his jungle, you can counterjungle him really hard. If you see him doing a camp, wait for him to use his E+Q and then engage on him, he cant do anything against you. Lategame you need to take care of his ult, cause it can fuck you up really hard.

VS

Jax

Hard

You have to camp is lane, otherwhise he can win the lane and win the game. As soon as he get 2-3 items you cannot kill him anymore.

VS

Jinx

Easy

I love playing against Jinx because she cant really get away from you. When she throw out her chompers, you can just walk around because you got so much movespeed.

VS

Kalista

Medium

Skill dependent. If you Jump in, you have to throw your (5) Bola at her so she gets rooted and cant kite you. If you hit it, you can kill her without any problems.

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Kha'zix is not that hard. If he gets ahead he will be able to kill you when you are isolated.
If this is not the case you can pretty much always 1v1 him.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Lee Sin is a bit tricky, once he is ahead you're gona have a hard time. 

He will probably try to counterjungle you early on. 
Ask your lanes to ward your jungle so you can stay safe against him. 
If you are stealthed, dont stay near him because his E will reveale you.
Also try not to jump anywhere near him, he will just kick you away and your engage is denied. Besides that you can 1v1 him anytime besides early game.

VS

Leona

Hard

Its really easy for her to stun and exhaust you. If she does this correctly, when you jump in, you got a huge problem.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

Invade his jungle 24/7. Buy a ward or 2, ward his jungle and kill him over and over again early on, then snowball the shit out of him.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

You can counterjungle her all day long. If you see her first, you will kill her (unless youre not in the jungle), because she cant escape you through the bushes. But you need to take care of her traps because it will stop your ult and also gona tell the enemys where you are.

VS

Nunu

Easy

He cant counterjungle you, unless you didnt ward well. If you ward your jungle, then its your turn to counterjungle him, because you win every 1v1 against a nunu. Its a bit tricky but if you learn how to ward your jungle, you can win easy. Smite wolves and/or KFC Chickens for vision and vision clear.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

It is pretty simple, early on, if he invades you, he can kill you if he times everything correct. But as soon as you have the jungle item complete, you will be stronger in a straight up 1v1. 


Try  to autoattack before using Q so his passiv will not block your whole damage.

VS

Rammus

Hard

In a teamfight he will be an annoying mofo. Try to always stand away from this guy because when he taunts you, you are pretty much dead.

VS

Riven

Medium

This is Medium to hard i think. The one that is more fed will win. But if you are even and the Riven is aware, she can turn around and rape you when you try to 1 shot you.

VS

Taric

Medium

His stun can be pretty anoying when he times it correctly.

Try to wait until he used it and then have fun raping his ADC.

Your core consists of armor pen, so the armor he give to his ADC is not gona make a big difference.

VS

Thresh

Medium

A good Thresh can denie you pretty hard with his flay and hook. Try to wait until he used his spells before going in.


VS

Twisted Fate

Hard

He's an easy kill in a 1v1 scenario, but his ultimate is a direct counter to yours.

VS

Vladimir

Medium

If you time it wrong, he can pool at the right moment and negate your burst and "surprise effect".

Rengar combos and how to 1 shot people Back to Top

Okay this is more complicated as you probably think.


When you ult to gank, you want to go with 5 Stacks into ultimate, run to your target (The more you know) and as soon as you are in range to jump, get ready to hit them buttons.
Okay:Pre Jump Activate your 5 Stack rengarQ.png(Q), then mid jump throw out your rengarE.png(E) and right after that rengarQ.png(Q)>Hydra>rengarW.png(W) pretty much at the same time, after you did that, there is about 0.5 seconds where you dont have any CD's ready. Then your ult Kicks in and you get 5 Stacks again. SO rengarQ.png(Q) THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF YOUR TARGET AND KILL'EM.

Now in the case you are fed and want to 1 shot someone (That you dont need to root like kalista or something):

You need 4 stacks, hydra, ghostblade and a huge dick.

go into your ultimate, activate ghostblade and run to the enemy. DONT IMMEDIATELY JUMP. Wait for them to see the exclamation mark because most people will use their dashes or even their flashes to get this stupid mark away. If they did so, jump on their face. 

Again: Mid air rengarE.png(E), if you hit it, you're gona have 5 stacks, now this: (5) rengarQ.png(Q) > Hydra > rengarW.png(W) > rengarE.png(E)> rengarQ.png(Q)  Your ult is gona kick in again and you can (5) rengarQ.png(Q) him again.

you can almost do the whole combo midair and you need to pull it off as fast as you can.

Will add some videos soon-

Early / Mid and Lategame with Rengar jungle Back to Top

Early game

Your jungle route should look like this:

  1. Get botlane leash on gromp or doubles. !USE SMITE!
  2. Do the nearest buff. 
  3. !WHEN YOU GOT A GOOD LEASH! - you can now go to raptors or wolves.
  4. Do the your second buff or raptors/wolves.
  5. clear the last camp of the side your clearing atm.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE AT THIS POINT YOU CAN SNOWBALL THE WHOLE GAME

  1. Now go back into your jungle and look if toplane pushed or not. If toplane pushed, do a topside camp to get 5 ferocity stacks. Walk through lane into a bush. You got 3 bushes so try to get as near as possible but without showing your self to the enemy toplaner. Now you can camp and wait till he overextend just a little, jump on him and mid jump (5) Bola him. If you bola him he's 100% dead because at level 4 no one can survive the burst from 2 people while being bolad.

    If top lane is not pushed, do the same thing botlane. If top and bot didnt push, keep jungling untill you see an oportunity to gank any lane. If the enemy jungler is weak in a 1v1 you can also invade him.

  2. As soon as you hit level 6, get 5 ferocity stacks and gank a lane. IMO aim for botlane because there is the most follow up and you can take drake after you killed someone.
If a gank was succesfull, help your laner push the tower, since first tower gives alot of gold!

Mid game


Here it is all about picking someone up. Buy a lot of pinkwards and also ask your team to do so. Everytime you see someone, you can go ahead and kill him, because of your insane movespeed (Boots, Ghostblade + ult)
Aim for objectives, take dragon after a pick, towers or baron!

Try to splitpush to catch someone when they are coming for you.

Late game


Late game is all about One shotting the highest priority target. If you build full damage, you can kill this target in 1 Hit and just go full rampage and kill the other people around you like a real Kitty would do.

You can also just randomly ult (because your ult is on such a low CD) and search people with it, if you find one, kill him, if not, just wait for your ult to come up again.

You can do this over and over again until you can end the game. 

Its not that bad to suicide, as long as you take the highest priority target with you so your team can fight!
