Tips

Playing As Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton
  • Slice Slice and Dice Dice excels at harassing maneuvers. Slice Slice in, follow up with another skill and then Dice Dice out to safety.
  • Cull the Meek Cull the Meek drains an enormous amount of life when used in the middle of the fray. You can use this to bait opponents into thinking you are weaker than you really are
  • Cooldown reduction is especially good for Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton, allowing him to both quickly build and use his Fury.
Playing Against Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton
  • Pay close attention to Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton's Fury gauge as that will signify when he is about to attack.
  • Keeping Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton from being able to fight and gain Fury by continually harassing him will severely reduce the effectiveness of his abilities.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • While some might have played manaless champions before, Renekton's Reign of Anger Reign of Anger Fury resource (shared with Tryndamere OriginalSquare Tryndamere and Shyvana OriginalSquare Shyvana) can catch many players who are unfamiliar with Renekton off-guard. While he needs Fury to enhance his abilities, he does not need it to cast them. Try to use this to your advantage.
  • Cull the Meek Cull the Meek heals more when an enemy champion is hit; try to use this to your advantage.
    • Empowered Cull the Meek Cull the Meek grants excellent lane sustain thanks to its increased damage and healing cap. Take advantage of this by building Fury, then hitting as many enemy minions as you can in a single swing to greatly increase your health gain.
      • Keep in mind that the normal version of Cull the Meek Cull the Meek grants Fury while the empowered version does not.
  • Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator resets Renekton's autoattack timer, resulting in a possible fourth attack.
    • Keep in mind that Renekton is not able to move while hitting with Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator.
    • Note that Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator does not deal additional damage to turrets unlike Shyvana OriginalSquare Shyvana's Twin Bite Twin Bite.
      • Nevertheless, it can be used to take turrets faster due to it being an autoattack reset.
  • Slice Slice / Dice Dice has a number of great uses thanks to its mobility.
    • When you need to make a quick escape, use Slice Slice into a minion wave or champion. This will trigger Dice Dice, allowing you to use it again and clear distance very quickly.
    • When moving through the jungle, you can use Slice Slice / Dice Dice to go through some walls. Ideally, try to Slice Slice through walls where you will hit a monster camp on the other side, allowing you to cast Dice Dice for increased chasing or escaping effectiveness.
    • Slice Slice / Dice Dice can be used to harass enemies who have their abilities on cooldown. Slice Slice in, land a few hits, and Dice Dice back out of range in time before the enemy champion has time to react properly.
    • Remember that Dice Dice with loaded Fury will activate the bonus, not Slice Slice.
    • Slice Slice / Dice Dice in combination with Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator is good for attacking ranged champions, since Slice Slice / Dice Dice gets you close while Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator stuns the target. Once again, make sure you Slice Slice through minions or champions so you can Dice Dice the rest of the way if needed.
    • Slice Slice / Dice Dice provides excellent mobility for dodging skill shots in lane. When you see an enemy lining one up Slice Slice through nearby minions out of the way, and then activate Dice Dice to further re-position yourself.
  • Although they aren't on-next-attack abilities, Cull the Meek Cull the Meek and Slice Slice / Dice Dice also reset Renekton's autoattack timer. Try to weave all his abilities in between autoattacks to increase your DPS substantially. These autoattacks also generate Fury, so do not neglect them!
  • Dominus Dominus increases the range of Cull the Meek Cull the Meek. Use this to your advantage in team fights.
  • Dominus Dominus allows Renekton to easily win duels thanks to its mix of instant health gain, damage, and Fury gain, allowing him to make sudden comebacks.
    • If both you and your opponent are low on health and Dominus Dominus is available try to lure them in and use it to get an easily kill.
  • Renekton can jungle with Reign of Anger Reign of Anger and Cull the Meek Cull the Meek.
  • Deciding how to use Renekton's Fury bonus on abilities is very important.
    • The added heal from Cull the Meek Cull the Meek can help you sustain better in lane or in the jungle.
    • A increased stun from Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator will lock down an enemy longer when pursuing or escaping.
    • The armor reduction from Slice Slice / Dice Dice increases physical damage dealt by yourself and the rest of your team.
  • By activating Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator during a dash from Slice Slice / Dice Dice and selecting a champion as your next basic attack, you can dash into an enemy and stun them immediately.
  • It is recommended to try to reach 100 Fury so you can use two empowered skills. You may activate empowered version of Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator and Cull the Meek Cull the Meek to maximize your damage and healing, or activate Dice Dice (after Slice Slice) to shred enemy armor, then following with other skill or autoattack.
Runes Usage
Item Usage
Countering
  • Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton has an extremely strong laning phase and very high early game damage because of the high base damage his abilities have, especially their Reign of Anger Reign of Anger-empowered versions.
    • On the other hand, despite his strong early game power, Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton is highly vulnerable on being poked down early and his main gap closer, Slice Slice / Dice Dice is relatively short. Ranged champions with good kiting mechanics such as Teemo OriginalSquare Teemo. Kennen OriginalSquare Kennen, Jayce OriginalSquare Jayce, Ryze OriginalSquare Ryze, Nidalee OriginalSquare Nidalee, Kayle OriginalSquare Kayle, and Lulu OriginalSquare Lulu can crowd control Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton and/or safely create distance between Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton and kite safely.
    • Keep in mind that Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton does not use mana as a resource, has a built in heal with empowered Cull the Meek Cull the Meek, and can build common lifesteal items such as Ravenous Hydra item Ravenous Hydra to stay in lane longer. Build accordingly to counter him.
  • Watch his Fury bar. Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton will usually be passive until he gains Fury, then attack you with Slice Slice, hit you with a Fury-empowered Cull the Meek Cull the Meek or Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator and back off with Dice Dice's dash. Position yourself in the brush and make yourself hard to reach for Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton, forcing him to get out of position.
  • Never get careless against Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton: he has a powerful combination of a stun, mobility and sustain.
  • Due to Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton's AD caster playstyle, he's extremely weakened and disrupted by Silence icon silence, but not Blind icon blind. Keep this in mind when playing against him.
  • One of Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton's biggest weaknesses is powerful burst nukers. Excluding Slice Slice / Dice Dice mobility, he's essentially a melee character that's prone to be bursted down from range and kited with crowd control.
  • Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton has a naturally high health pool, further complimented by Dominus Dominus, which leaves him vulnerable to items and abilities that deal percent health damage.
  • Usually Slice Slice / Dice Dice can be used once, but if it hits an enemy, he gains the ability to use it twice. This will allow Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton to cover over 800 units of distance. If the situation allows it, don't let him hit an enemy with Slice Slice / Dice Dice, which can be difficult as he can use the ability on minions.
  • At level 6, Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton gains the access to use Dominus Dominus. It can make turret diving him a very difficult task because he will quickly be able to receive a large bonus of health, which is also essentially a heal that cannot be reduced by Ignite Ignite. It will also grant him access to a lot of bonus Fury which can net him a powerful heal from Cull the Meek Cull the Meek or an extra-long stun from Ruthless Predator Ruthless Predator.
  • Dominus Dominus is an extremely powerful ability, especially in the early to mid-stages of the game. The extra health makes a Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton in this form more durable than most champions. The additional fury and AoE damage can enable Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton to dish out deceptive and overwhelming amounts of damage, essentially being able to kill two champions by himself easily. Approach a level 6 Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton with care.
  • Be sure to build armor when playing against Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton. He deals high bursts of physical damage.
  • Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton might choose to build more towards damage or tanking. Pay attention to this: If you force him to build tanky he will greatly fall off late game because of the nature of his kit. If he builds towards damage, prioritize him accordingly in teamfights and be sure to lock him down with crowd control. He has extremely high ability ratios but low survivability outside of health, sustain, and Dominus Dominus.
  • While tanky DPS Renekton OriginalSquare Renekton greatly loses power late game, he's very difficult to deal with early to mid-game. You should try to isolate him out of teamfights and always know his location.
