How is his balance "good" when everybody knows that top lane is powercreeped to all hell and Renekton's late game is non-existent?

I am purely suspecting here, but I don't think that the Ad-caster item will come out before the season 2 finals ends.
Why? Because of that quote from Xypherous regarding Ad-carry item variety:
"Phantom Dancer would have to be fundamentally reworked to not be prime utility x prime damage - and that's a change I don't see us doing lightly / quickly when season 2 finals are this close."
~Xypherous
For sure, ad-caster item is not the same as an ad-carry item, but I would believe that a fresh viable Ad-caster item could create some unwanted storm in the unbreakable ad-carry itemisation, something that Riot seems to avoid at all cost, at least before the season 2 finals ends.
So, speculating here, we have to wait for a new ad-caster item until Season 3 starts.
Stay strong, my trusty crocodile fellows, stay strong...

Good to hear from you as always solid. Many players have come forth with many fresh ideas as always we look for Riot to at least comment on some of them. We as renekton players thank you for always keeping us up to date and we will continue until we are heard.

Yes he does and maybe nasus will finally be acknowledged as well. I can say that I'm worn out with Dermacia it would be nice to explore renekton and nasus home world. My big hope maybe someone shares it as well is that Riot will bring another champion from renekton and nasus race that would be awesome.

I'm tired of Riot using the Ad-Caster item excuse for this...
I mean, even if the ad-caster item is good that won't fix the problems of Renekton. Why? Well, simple, because all the other ad casters that are already better than Renekton will be better with the new item as well...
Anyway, if they are so afraid of touching anything near the finals then i don't think the'll make any important fix soon

Have to agree with ya man. The ad caster item will help with itemization not flaws. Renekton has flaws but the ad caster may allow for a better build options overall.

Agreed but don't forget this statement the tone was not what renekton players were looking for. His tourney use is a joke and always has been compared to his solo top opponents. Riven and Irelia for example have always been more viable in tourney play. A year or more without tourney play does not look viable to many of us. Wickd,wingsofdeath, and other top pro's will put renekton back into obscurity from which he came and he will stay. I cannot blame them just better picks out there we know that, they know that and I hope Morello knows that. Pre-release renekton was something else. I fear that Riot is looking at renekton through pre-release renekton goggles.
