Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Starting Items

  • Long Sword is bought as a first item as it grants you attack damage which allows you to last hit easier and deal more damage to enemies with the help of your Ruthless PredatorRuthless Predator which deals two/three auto-attacks. On top of that, it is also a good purchase as it builds into your first full item

First Recall

Fighter Build

This is more or less the default build that a lot of Renekton players will go for. It offers a decent amount of attack damage, health, and mixed resistance. Fits well for both team fighting and split-pushing.

  • Black CleaverBlack Cleaver is your standard item. Grants you AD, HP and Ability Haste which is everything RenektonRenekton needs. On top of that, it also allows you to shred through enemy tanks.
  • [sterak' gage] turns you into a super tank. You get a lot of health from it, and a very fat shield when you fall below 35% health.
  • Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant is a standard enchantment as you will be split-pushing with this build, and then teleporting to your team when a fight breaks out.
  • [guardian's angel] is very powerful. It allows you to engage, take down enemies, and revive with the item. A lot of enemies will avoid focusing on you because they know you will come back to life. Allows you to be a team-fight diver, without taking a lot of focus from the enemies.
  • Dead Man's PlateDead Man's Plate give you movement speed to allow you to catch up to enemies. On top of that, you also get armor and health which is very useful in the later stages of the game when enemies have a lot of AD.
  • Spirit VisageSpirit Visage is your last purchase because you have no magic resistances, and it works well with Cull The MeekCull The Meek which allows you to heal.

Juggernaut Build

The juggernaut build is something you should go for if your team are lacking tanks, and they need someone to engage, soak up all damage and allow them to fight without worrying about dealing with their backline.

  • Sunfire AegisSunfire Aegis is the first item that all tanks buy. It grants you damage, a lot of health, and a decent amount of ability haste.
  • [sterak' gage] turns you into a super tank. You get a lot of health from it, and a very fat shield when you fall below 35% health.
  • Glorious EnchantGlorious Enchant is used to engage team fights with, or you can also go for Gargoyle EnchantGargoyle Enchant if your [renekton:3] is enough to engage.
  • Dead Man's PlateDead Man's Plate give you movement speed to allow you to catch up to enemies. On top of that, you also get armor and health which is very useful in the later stages of the game when enemies have a lot of AD.
  • Spirit VisageSpirit Visage because you have no magic resistances, and it works well with Cull The MeekCull The Meek which allows you to heal.
  • The last item is optional. Typically people go for ThornmailThornmail if they need healing reduction, Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen if the enemies have 2 AD Carries or a YasuoYasuo or even a [Warmong's armor] if they feel like they get bursted too easily.

Enchantments

Fighter 2 

This build is a lot more based around skirmishes and short trades. You buy Blade of the Ruined KingBlade of the Ruined King and Trinity ForceTrinity Force because they work very well with your Ruthless PredatorRuthless Predator . I haven't tried it personally, but I see a lot of top Renektons build it.
