Rengar is a great champion at ganking early, as soon as level 3 hits and he gains access to all of his abilities. However, these ganks are quite weak, and require the laner to be aware and ready.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Savagery, for the attack speed buff and damage. 
  • Level 2 - Take W - Battle Roar, for the sustain when farming jungle camps.
  • First Back - Start building towards your Mythic item, whichever you've opted for.

Tips & Tricks

  • Be mindful that Control Wards (pink) will reveal Rengar's position, even when Camouflaged. 
  • Battle Roar is more effective the more damage you've taken. 
  • Using Battle Roar at max Ferocity clears any crowd control effects on you.
  • You must use bushes as much as possible on Rengar, a requirement if you want to leap out and surprise an enemy.
  • You have a brief window after leaving a bush to still activate this passive leap.
  • Rengar's main combo is to activate Savagery, then jumping on an enemy from a bush with the passive, using Bola Strike and Roar while leaping, then finishing with the Savagery hits.
