Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

First Purchase:

 The first item you want to buy in every game is Long SwordLong Sword . It provides you with 12 Attack Damage which is great for cleaning the jungle camps as fast and possible.

First Recall:

As you are recalling the 1st time you have 2 options to build your 1st item. You can either go for Serrated DirkSerrated Dirk into Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade or go for PhagePhage into Black CleaverBlack Cleaver . So when do you buy which?

You build Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade if the enemy team has many squishy targets like ZiggsZiggs or OriannaOrianna which you can easily out catch with the bonus movement speed given by the passive. Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade also has great synergize with Thrill Of The HuntThrill Of The Hunt and has helpful stats to assassinate your opponent.

You build Black CleaverBlack Cleaver if the enemy team has many tanks like GarenGaren or AlistarAlistar where you need the armor penetration to kill them. Black CleaverBlack Cleaver also provides great synergize with SavagerySavagery and the stats help you to sustain in a team fight.

If the enemy has a mix of squishy and tanks you should rather go for Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade because the item harmonizes better with the aggressive play style of Rengar

2nd Item:

Trinity ForceTrinity Force is one of the best item you can go for Rengar. It provides you great stats like Attack Damage, Attack Speed and especially Ability Haste which helps you stack up Ferocity even faster. It's a must-have on Rengar.

3rd item:

Sterak's GageSterak's Gage is the item I go for in 95% of my games. It provides you with stats like Attack Damage and Max health but the main reason I go for it is the passive. Lifeline is great because it provides you with 75% bonus health for 3 seconds which is huge when u want to engage and disengage to secure a kill for your team.

4th item:

Guardian AngelGuardian Angel is also a good item to built on Rengar. The passive is just amazing because you have a 2nd life with 50% of your base health after you die. That can have a huge impact in a team fight because after 4 seconds of stasis you can help your team again. If the enemies have much Attack Damage in their team u can also switch Guardian AngelGuardian Angel with Sterak's GageSterak's Gage so you have the +40 Armor earlier to sustain against the enemies. 

5th item:

Spirit VisageSpirit Visage is the last item I have in the build. It has useful health stats as well as magic resistance and ability haste. It's a good item against Ability Power Champions and I prefer it over Force of NatureForce of Nature because the passive of Spirit VisageSpirit Visage synergizes well with Battle RoarBattle Roar so you can get more heal from the ability. If the enemies team has more ability Power than Attack Damage you should buy this item as your 3rd item, so the enemies can't kill you that easily. If they don't have Ability Power you should buy Armor instead because it will increase your sustain against the enemy team.

Situational Items:

Duskblade of DraktharrDuskblade of Draktharr is an item that can be good if you are fed(1500 gold more than the enemy). Then you can go for it as your 3rd item because it will increase your damage and synergizes well with Thrill Of The HuntThrill Of The Hunt . Else don't go for it because you will be too squishy when you don't go for a defensive item.

  Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen / ThornmailThornmail are two items which you can build if the enemy team relies on Attack Damage. Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen is the way to go if the enemy team has 2 or more crit Champions. If they don't, you should go for ThornmailThornmail because it has more Armor than Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen

Upgraded Boots:

For the 2nd tier boots you can either go for Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads or Plated SteelcapsPlated Steelcaps

Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads should you buy when the enemy team has many Crowd Control or  Ability Power Champions.

Plated SteelcapsPlated Steelcaps should you buy when the enemy team has many Attack Damage Champions.

Boot Enchantments:

For the 3rd tier boots you can decide going for Locket EnchantLocket Enchant , Redeeming EnchantRedeeming Enchant or Stasis EnchantStasis Enchant

  Locket EnchantLocket Enchant and Redeeming EnchantRedeeming Enchant are the best Enchantments you can go for. You choose the one that the supporter of your team didn't buy because the effect of Locket EnchantLocket Enchant or Redeeming EnchantRedeeming Enchant is reduced by 50% when the same effect was used in the last 20 seconds.

Stasis EnchantStasis Enchant is the way to go when you want to block abilities like Camille, Zed or Fizz Ultimate.

Rengar

Jungle Pathing

That is the standard pathing for Rengar. You start at red, go to raptors and then go to wolves. When you are at the wolves you should bait them in the direction of the blue buff by going a little closer to the blue buff after every Auto Attack. After wolves, go to blue and then to scuttle. After scuttle, you have 3 options. 

Option 1: gang top or mid lane

Option 2: go the risky way and take the krugs from the enemy side of the jungle, so you level up to level 5

Option 3: go the safe way and take the gromp from your side of the jungle, so you level up to  level 5

passive on jungle camps

In the picture you can see all the spots where you can activate your Unseen PredatorUnseen Predator on a jungle camp. Herald is the only objective where you can hit your Unseen PredatorUnseen Predator  because his hit box is bigger than dragon or baron hit box. With your Thrill Of The HuntThrill Of The Hunt you can also hit dragon and baron, so he's great in stealing objectives. It might help you to know the spots to clear the jungle even faster.
