I've beaten an adequate Renekton with Wukong before.


Renekton is a very strong duelist, but doesn't bring much to team fights. This is key.

Renekton isn't so bad if he doesn't get kills.

He has 3 sunfire capes worth of free damage tied into a 600 health steroid. his bases are still high enough to seriously threaten a carry late game, not to mention the absurd amount of aoe damage he puts out in fights. I commonly top damage in games as renekton building full tank, sometimes more than half of my dmg dealt to champions is magical. This is not falling off, this is ammumu level damage

And despite all of that, Renekton is still a last resort top lane pick in professional play.

Renekton has ALWAYS been a strong laner but late game he becomes a glorified disruption bot. With the nerfs to Sunfire and Visage coming in the patch. Ren's mid game is taking a decent hit.

Renekton, by design, will always be good at his lane phase. The issue isn't so much with Renekton but with others like Shyvana, Mundo, Rengar, Olaf, and even Nasus, which almost always get picked before Renekton if not banned, and all have an equally strong early game (exception of Nasus who's still a near unkillable wall) with significantly better scaling.
