Given that Renekton is fairly obviously melee and is "the Eater of Souls" I think it's a fair conclusion that his passive will be some sort of soul steal from minions upon killing them / being near to their death. These souls will then be the units for his resource system.

He'll likely also have a cleave ability and a transform on R.

It's a long shot but perhaps he'll have some ability which meshes with the river given that he is a crocodile.

Na. No soul eating. We've tried it in the past, it never works.

Soul eating/soul accumulation is a valid motivation to try to take over the world/be an evil genius, however.

He will proberly have life steal.
Uh i hope hes like Nasus, but not as passive and (dare i say it?) boring in early game as Nasus. Honestly Nasus could use a buff or two.
Hope you will do this champion right. Please remove Vladmir from the game.

Ah well a pity, sounds like a cool mechanic.

Thanks for the speedy response however! I am keen to see what his kit looks like, first champion in awhile that I've been remotely interested in.

EDIT: Also if in fact he does no soul eating... perhaps his title could be changed somewhat :P
