Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

If you don’t understand terms there is a glossary at the end of the guide

Starting items

  • Always start with a Long SwordLong Sword on this champ. It always provides the best value and gives you high AD which increases you Cull The MeekCull The Meek damage
  • Next build a Vampiric ScepterVampiric Scepter this item provides AD and some physical vamp. This gives you some sustain for the early game which is very important. sometimes if you are low on health and have enough gold to buy this item you can recall but often it is better to just stay in lane
  • After a Vampiric ScepterVampiric Scepter you will build a Recurve BowRecurve Bow this is only because it is in the build path for Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King . The attack speed helps but not that much. This is not an item worth recalling for. Most of the time just continue farming until you can buy Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King

Core items

  • RenektonRenekton ’s first item should always be Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King it provides too much value on him not to be taken. It gives AD and physical vamp with attack speed. The raw stats are all good but the passive is the important part. The percentage current health damage works great with RenektonRenekton for demolishing tanks. The second part is triggered easily with Ruthless PredatorRuthless Predator  this deals bonus damage to his main combo and steals move speed so you can chase them down.
  • Black CleaverBlack Cleaver works well with him because it complements the bruiser/fighter playstyle that RenektonRenekton uses. The CDR helps since DominusDominus doesn’t reduce cooldown. The health makes him more tanky and the passives help him chase down enemies and melt tanks. Armour reductions is also for your teammates so they can benefit from the reduced armour.
  • The last item in his core build is Death's DanceDeath's Dance  this item just gives you so much sustain and health while also giving some AD. This makes him very tanky and gives him time to heal for damage taken so he might survive the fight.

Sweet Tooth

Always take ConquerorConqueror for you keystone it helps out when you are trying to fight enemies and provides too much value compared to other runes.

Take BrutalBrutal because nothing else really fits that well, the armour pen and AD give a huge early game boost in damage. MAYBE you can take WeaknessWeakness so when you stun you combos deal more damage but BrutalBrutal is better early game.

Take Adaptive CarapaceAdaptive Carapace for when you are under 50% health your passive [renekton:passive] gains fury faster, this makes under 50% trades very effective as you hit a power spike and might be able to use empowered Cull The MeekCull The Meek to heal on their minions to win early trades. Remember you are one of the strongest level 1 champs in the game with you and AkshanAkshan being some of the strongest.

Sweet ToothSweet Tooth is a good Rune to have good sustain in the laning phase.

Renekton

Early game

Renekton is one of the strongest champions in the early game beating most matchups with ease. Remembering to abuse his powerful early game is crucial to playing him. The stun on his Ruthless PredatorRuthless Predator is very powerful since it also gains a lot of fury. When the rage bar is full use your Cull The MeekCull The Meek   When you are close to enemy minions. This maximises the healing on the ability and gives insane sustain. Make sure to abuse the basic combo since most champs cant do anything. With the exception of fiora and jax few champs can fend you off. Just try not to over extend too much unless you have a lot of vision otherwise you will probably be ganked losing the laning phase for you. When you have enough gold to buy Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King recall and then you will hit a huge power spike. Maybe you can stick around a bit longer and buy teleport to TP to the dragon fight if there is one. Place a ward in the river brush near top lane at the start to prevent a gank kill. If things are going well and the minion wave is pushed into the enemy tower then you can try to help your jungler by getting or denying the enemy jungler of top scuttle. Renektons early game is one to abuse and is very good especially in the hands of a pro

Renekton

Mid game

If renektons early game is good he will dominate in the mid game with unrivalled damage and now that he is on higher levels he will become a lot more tanky. His damage is consistent and he can easily take down many opponents and help out in objectives. With your stun and a ton of armour reduction you help your team quite a lot and become very powerful. You can start roaming and leaving top lane and try to take a turret or rift herald. Your goal in the mid game is to just roam and kill as many people as possible you can shut down most squishy carries and mages instantly and tanks don’t have enough damage to kill you. Unless its a [dr.mundo] but even then you have a much higher damage out put.

Renekton

Late game

You have probably performed well in the early and mid game and the goal is much the same as mid game. However you need to be a lot more careful now because even if you are ahead they still have a lot of items now and are a high level.you should be able to kill them but its not as easy as you don’t have a powerspike quite as big as the Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King one. You can demolish turrets quickly and should try to do so. Again your goal is to kill everyone you can and help with objectives and now that you are high level your true power is unleashed gaining 750hp with your DominusDominus and your AD becomes too high. You are not as powerful as in the early or mid game but you are still a force to be reckoned with.d
