Anyone can jungle. Runes and masteries set accordingly, grab cloth armor and five hp potions and start at the double golem camp with smite. Smite one, kill it, and then work the other one down. Go to Wraith Camp, smite the large wraith, then kill the rest. Go to wolves, kill them, etc. If you're feeling adventurous then you can start at the enemy wolf/golem/wraith camp and go into your jungle afterward for better exp in one cycle (since you are using a champion that isn't made for jungling).

Get Madred's, rape the buff monsters, go gank...oh yeah watch out for everyone probably being a higher level and better equipped than you since you are a very inefficient jungler. You're almost better off siphoning a little gold from an outside lane and then buying Madred's and just starting at the Golem Elder.


Make sure you have the +5% exp from masteries and the +6% from runes if you can manage, because leveling up in the jungle with a champion not made to jungle is going to suuuuuuuuck.

Runes:
Marks: Alacrity or Desolation (preferred)
Seals: Armor (preferred) or flat HP or HP regen or Armor per level or Alacrity
Glyphs: flat CDR (preferred) or flat armor or Alacrity
Quintessence: EXP (REALLY PREFERRED) or flat HP or HP regen or Desolation (second best choice, arguably) or Alacrity


"Why so much Alacrity?" More attacks = higher chance to proc early Madred's Razor passive.
Maybe someone who actually jungles can assess my rune listing.

Renek should not be in the jungle. His fury resource and skill set make him wonderful in a solo or duo lane. His skills are great for harassment, not for the jungle.

That was not his/her question...anyone CAN jungle, only a few SHOULD.

The question was CAN, and he CAN. SHOULD he? Probably not, but he still CAN.

Nice job avoiding the topic.

Actually the question is: "Jungle Renek Viable?"

Yes, Renekton can jungle. But as Oatfarmer pointed out, it's not viable.

He's on tier 4 of stonewall's jungle list, IIRC.

But yeah, he doesnt gain enough health in jungle from his Q. He gets massive heals from champions, which is why he's better in lane. His jungle ganks are REALLY good though. So... depends on how aggressive you are. If you jungle to farm like WW, you`re probably not going to have the best results. If you jungle to gank like Eve, yeah, go for it.

Ok, He CAN. Just like Karthus CAN jungle. Doesn't mean they should.

Renekton's initial clear is far too slow. And his reliance on blue to do anything useful really makes him unviable.

I cleared Renekton jungle slightly within 5min so I guess so.

renekton suffers from My CD are to long and my natural damage is to low.

5 min is a relatively slow jungle.

Finally he has xin syndrome. He does so well in lane that it a shame in to waste him in jungle.
