All he needs is an animation speed up on his W and he'd be in a great place.

Dyrus ran him in the tourny a while back...but Ren never really did well.

Ren just never shines at any point in the game...he's just...there....just meh.

Olaf is does the same thing as Ren...but is harder to stop...scales better...has better tools...has less counters...

The BC was a great addition for Ren, and he's better now than he was in S2... but I still see no reason to pick him over Wu, Riven, or Olaf; who can do the same things as Ren, but better.

I tried renekton and was horrified at how weak he seems, so I agree the gator needs a buff. I think a cool mechanic they could give him is one where he latches on to his opponent, greatly slowing them and reducing the damage they deal while allowing him to continue autoattacking them until he takes X amount of of damage or uses another skill.

I think with the appropriate changes Renekton could be a lot like Darius- an assault specialist, except that Renek would have his dash ability.

**I also hate the way his rage works- it forces him to commit to combat without abilities, and his rage building faster if he's below 50% health is just a slap in the face- when you are under half health the enemy is either escaping or finishing you off.

I like all these ideas for a Renekton buff. Even changing his ult from AP scale to AD scale would make a world of difference. A feed Renekton 12 minutes in is unstoppable, but if you dont get fed? GG. This being said I do normally do well on Renekton despite how underpowered he is, and in normals he can dominate. This will almost never carry over to rankeds however, and no one even needs to mention how terrible his late game is.

I don't get how people can argue against renekton buffs when it is clear he has fallen out of favor from his original role as an early dominance laner. Maybe you just played him to death so you can't see the actual flaws in his design now, but they are there. I kind of understand that because when you play the game for the 4-5 years it's been out or just 1 champ months at a time like me even after various breaks you just understand the champ so well that it doesn't matter. it reminds me a lot of when the mord nerfs came out yet I still managed to do well with him.

You have to be honest with yourselves though Renek has fallen off. going against the riens/wu/jayce/ jack remake etc has become more then a pain now. The uphill battle are a lot more uphill now.

It used to be pre or post sustain nerf renek was the champ to be early game. Even early monsters like garen were hard to place vs him. He was a brutal bully that could get the job done with very little opposition in the hero pool to say otherwise. This made little things like his stunning W and his terrible passive ok. The flip side was that he fell off late game. It was what made him fun and risky. Renekton was truly defined as a champion this way, but not anymore. Popping ult + a fort potion for early kills and tower dives doesn't mean much anymore when most people do more damage then you and have far more ways out.

He needs some tweaks to put him on that tipping point again to face today's hero pool if he is to stay relevant. His fury mechanic is the worst of the collection of champs that were given fury(look at how good tryn /shyv made out), and his skills need some fine tuning.

I own top lane with Renekton and i use this item Spirit Visage( which gives me 20% more healing). He has a very good early game, which is good for getting fed, but they should increase his bonuses "while enraged" to make it worth it.

500 Elo Smurf:
You do realise that the spotlight info is incorrect and outdated. He is much weaker now. He doesnt get those insane heals like in spotlight, and you dont get 10 rage per hit.
Now he gets 5% heal instead of 10%. In addition you get 5 rage per hit, and it takes much longer to gather the rage. AND Riot released a lot of strong champions that were not there back then...(Rengar/Jayce/Darius)
Thanks for the positive response though. I really doubt that Riot will add any more damage to him, they are probably afraid to make him OP.....


Dude, I can notice you keep mentioning rengar when you haven't noticed that you can easily kill him, just go straight ahead and when you are about to die use your ulti. Rengar's ulti does nothing and with the 3 seconds delay, he is an easy pray. We are having our own battle buffing up rengar bro.
