Renekton is notorious for starting very strongly, but dropping off in the lategame. Your job will be to harass the lane and push as quickly as possible.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Cull the Meek, for heal and trade potential. 
  • Level 2 - Take E - Slice and Dice, so that you have a gap closer and disengage tool as well as damage.
  • First Back - Start building your Goredrinker. If you're struggling in lane, pick up your defensive boots.

Tips & Tricks

  • Managing your Fury resource well is the key to being effective on Renekton. Use your boosted Ruthless Predator during an all-in, and a boosted Cull the Meek during trades. A boosted Slice and Dice will shred tanks.
  • Don't hesitate to use Slice and Dice to escape an enemy gank. 
  • Remember to use your auto-attacks in-between abilities. The animation for Ruthless Predator can be cancelled, so you can chain two autos quickly. 
  • Ruthless Predator passes through shields like those of Morgana and Sivir, so you can still stun the enemy.
