I have not found this to be true. If you build him Wickd style then he scales very well in my opinion... CDR boots, couple of dorans, then either BT or Maw, spirit visage/randuins/LW/GA. Like you would Riven. All I ever hear is "Renek bad late".... And I'm starting to think they mean the Brutalizer/Mallet/Sunfire cape Renektons

EDIT: From the number of downvotes, I guess the "Renekton is UP" squad found me. Except he's not... Sorry!

not bad, but Renek is pretty ignorable if you build him too tanky. I think you should focus more AD as he benefits from that a lot more than attack speed. Madred's is a great final dmg item for any tanky dps but it won't synergize with your armor pen

Renny isn't good lategame unless he's overleveled and has made some good items.

Beforehand when Atma's was viable this was easier to accomplish, but now...geez, I'd honestly rather just play as someone else.

Maybe this is what I'm doing wrong.

I've been playing him on and off for the past few weeks and I usually do CRAZY good early game, then build maw, mallet, brut, cdr/mercs/ninjas and I do nothing late game. I just die in team fights and can't even kill hte carry.

And he explodes if you build him too DPSy.

Although I did do CDR Boots, LW, 4 BT Renekton once.

One shot a Teemo.

It was worth it.

I got carried.

except the owner of the build you're quoting has admitted that "Renekton has a horrible late game that is only brought justice by the fact he can completely dominate his lane."

Wickd just plays him like Riven. Yeah yeah I know he's a high elo player and I'm a sheep but you can accomplish the same hard aoe burst in a teamfight. IMO he's AD caster not tanky dps
