Intro

Hey! I'm FFrostbite, im a Master midlaner on EUW and this guide is about my midlane

Renekton
.

He is my special pick against hard matchups. Renekton almost autowins every matchup after level 6. In my opinion

Renekton
is super underrated for soloq. In this guide I'm going to explain everything you need to know about my favourite crocodile.

If you have questions, you can add me on EUW - Summoner Name: Frostbite I'm also streaming, you can find me on the link below!

If you have bonus time please leave a follow on my twitch and twitter <3


Pros / Cons


you might ask yourself why you should play a bruiser toplaner in midlane while building full AD…Well here are some answers!



1. Lane Dominance

With his high base damage and his rage system

Renekton
can be very dominant in lane. Your Q -
Cull the Meek
gives you alot of healing in lane. Also by managing his rage well, you can use your empowered W -
Ruthless Predator
on the enemy and proc
Press the Attack
instantly. This deals alot of damage!


2. Ability Scalings



Renekton
's abilitys have high AD scaling. This makes it worth to build full AD and go for a burst playstyle.

  • Q -
    Cull the Meek
    has an 80% bonus AD scaling
  • W -
    Ruthless Predator
    has an 150% AD scaling
  • E -
    Slice and Dice
    has a 90% bonus AD scaling in the first cast and 180% bonus AD scaling on the second cast

3. Gank Setup



Renekton
is a master in setting up ganks. He has a lot of damage, gap closing with his E -
Slice and Dice
and a point and click CC with his W -
Ruthless Predator
. These tools can be used to setup ganks or dives and can be the tool to bring you ahead and snowball the game.


4. Unknown Pick



Renekton
is only known as a toplaner - there he is built like a bruiser. So a lot of Midlaners underestimate his damage and CC potential.

this is very helpful since:

  • nobody knows how much damage you deal
  • nobody knows how to play the matchup
  • nobody expects your gap closing and burst potential




Runes

  • standard
  • vs poke
  • vs tanks




STANDARD RUNE PAGE

  • provides burst and more power in lane
  • take
    Press the Attack
    for burst. Its super good because your W -
    Ruthless Predator
    conts as multiple attacks. Raged it triggers it instantly
  • take
    Triumph
    for heal. Its good because in teamfights you want to dive in their backline and oneshot their carrys
  • take
    Legend: Tenacity
    for tenacity. It helps you get kited less
  • take
    Last Stand
    for more damage
  • as secondary go
    Future's Market
    for faster power spikes and
    Time Warp Tonic
    for more sustain in lane - the instant health and movement speed can be super useful



VS POKE

  • provides burst and survivability
  • take
    Press the Attack
    for burst. Its super good because your W -
    Ruthless Predator
    conts as multiple attacks. Raged it triggers it instantly
  • take
    Triumph
    for heal. Its good because in teamfights you want to dive in their backline and oneshot their carrys

  • take
    Last Stand
    for more damage
  • as secondary go for
    Second Wind
    first. Its good vs poke since it heals you after receiving damage. Also go
    Revitalize
    . Its a good syngeryg with
    Second Wind
    and increases your Q -
    Cull the Meek
    healing



VS TANKS / BRUISERS

  • provides damage and survivability
  • 
    Conqueror
    is better here because you can easily stack it against other meelee champs. It provides healing and damage and is generally really good in extended fights

    for attack speed. It helps you in 1v1s to burn through tanks easier
  • take
    Last Stand
    for more damage
  • as secondary go
    Bone Plating
    . Its good in early fights and can win you short trades.
    Unflinching
    helps you negate lost tenacity by not taking
    Legend: Tenacity
    .


Summoner Spells

Flash
is an essential summoner spell because of your ability to
Flash
stun with your W -
Ruthless Predator
. As second summoner you can choose besides 3 different options.

  • 
    Ignite

  • 
    Teleport
    • good for scaling - can be used when you want to sidelane or for flanks

Combos



Before talking about combos we have to talk about

Renekton
's passive
Reign of Anger
.
Renekton
doesn’t have spell costs. He has a system called "Rage".

You stack rage by:

  • autoattacking (5 per autoattack)
  • hitting Q -
    Cull the Meek
    (2,5 per non-champion hit + 10 per champion hit)
  • hitting W -
    Ruthless Predator
    (10 if you hit a champion)
  • hitting E -
    Slice and Dice
    (2 per non-champion hit + 10 per champion hit)
  • with your R -
    Dominus
    (20 rage instantly, 5 per second)
  • you also lose 4 rage per second if you dont attack or get attacked within 12 seconds

At 50 rage your next spell will be enhanced and the rage will be consumed.

  • 
    Cull the Meek
    increases damage and increases healing
    • is useful for lane sustain
  • 
    Ruthless Predator
    will be your most used one
    • it adds one attack (making it 3 attacks, triggering
      Press the Attack
      instantly)
    • doubles the stun duration
    • breaks shields
  • 
    Slice and Dice
    will be your least used one
    • the 2nd cast deals more damage and reduces armor (can be useful vs tanks)




1. Level 3 allin

This level 3 all is one of your greatest combos - people dont expect the damage. It boils down to 3 things:

  • your rage bar:
    • you want to have at least 85 rage for rage W and rage Q.
    • The combo you want to do is either
      Flash
      - W (
      Ruthless Predator
      ) - Autoattack - E1 (
      Slice and Dice
      ) - Q (
      Cull the Meek
      ) - E2 (
      Slice and Dice
      )
    • or E (
      Slice and Dice
      ) - (
      Ruthless Predator
      ) - Autoattack - Q (
      Cull the Meek
      )



  • the minion wave:
    • do you have push (you don’t want to fight in a lot of enemy minions) or under the enemy turret



  • opponents level:
    • go for it if he is level 2
    • be more careful if he is level 3 and has some form of CC - it should still be easy tho

Usually you can force a

Flash
in these early all ins. After that u can call your jungle for a gank. It should lead to easy kills.


2. Shorttrade:

  • 
    Slice and Dice
    onto him, autoattack,
    Cull the Meek
    and
    Slice and Dice
    out
  • basic poke combo in lane - quick combo which is hard to react to
  • use it to slowly poke down the enemy laner before going for the kill




3. Longtrade:

  • 
    Slice and Dice
    ->
    Renekton
    -> autoattack ->
    Cull the Meek
    -> autoattack ->
    Slice and Dice
    -> autoattack
  • can be used either to poke the enemy in lane or to allin and chase him down
  • use your 2nd
    Slice and Dice
    cast backwards if you dont want to go for the kill
  • use your 2nd
    Slice and Dice
    cast forwards if you want to go for the kill




4. Oneshot:

  • 
    Flash
    ->
    Ruthless Predator
    ->
    Dominus
    -> autoattack ->
    Slice and Dice
    -> Rage
    Cull the Meek
    ->
    Slice and Dice
  • this combo should easily oneshot people if you have 1-2 items
  • use it to assasinate enemy carrys, which can easily win you teamfights




Playstyle



Earlygame

Early game is when you shine the brightest. Abuse your strength to get yourself and your team ahead. Invading and roaming are great tools to get your team ahead, though getting mid-priority will make your jungler happy.

The most important part is using your Level 3 all in with

Press the Attack
and
Ignite
. You need to stack 85 Rage to use the all in combo. You can force enemies
Flash
or if they disrespect your damage even get firstblood.

After getting your early game items nobody should contest you. Push your lane, get platings or help your team out. It is important to get ahead at this stage of the game.

After early laning phase you cannot be beaten in a 1vs1 with your R -

Dominus
ready. It gives you a lot of combat stats and a lot of Rage.



Midgame

In Midgame splitpushing is your main thing to do. You should win every 1vs1. Just don’t overextend and get caught by multiple people. Try getting turrets and pulling people towards you while not overextending. Vision is key here. Place

Stealth Ward
s and a
Control Ward
to keep you safe. Play around this vision and bait enemies - they will think you are overextending and waste time trying to catch you. In the meantime your team can get easy objectives.

Lategame

In Lategame empowered W (

Ruthless Predator
) is your best friend. Try flanking in teamfights and straight up stunning or
Flash
stunning high priority targets. You still are an assassin and can easily oneshot squishies. The only problem is that you are vulnerable against CC and being kited.

Splitpushers like

Fiora
or
Camille
have outscaled you at this point. But if they underestimate the Assassin Croco they can still be caught and killed. Be careful trying to fight them tho!
