The build I find that works the best is,

Doran's Shield > Cdr boots > Brut > Sunfire cape > Ghost Blade > Black Cleaver/Frozen Mallet. Bold is core.

I can usually get my core around 20-25 minutes, once you have Sunfire Cape your farm is ridiculous and the dot in conjunction with your ult is extremely devastating.

Been experimenting with this build

crit red
flat armour yellow (thinking of switching to flat hp, need IP)
mr/lvl blue (eventually going to switch to flat CDR, need IP)
flat hp quint

Boots -> Brutalizer -> Merc Treads(will probably switch to Ionian boots once i get CDR blues) -> Ghostblade -> Banshee's Veil/Atma's/Frozen Mallet -> Phantom Dancer

After Ghostblade, items depend on enemy team composition, I generally focus on HP items first if i'm confused on whether i should get MR or ARMR first, i don't prioritize finishing frozen mallet, i just like the slow from phage and hp from giants belt for atma's passive.

Next game I plan to get aegis right after ghostblade, seems like a great item on him : http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Renek...00000&level=18

120+ Defenses, 2.8k+ hp,
this is not a tank build, just a tough dps, i wouldn't even call it off-tank, renek is pretty squishy, he shines after lvl 3, and is pretty proficient at taking any type of champ down, his CC and damage are pretty good.

I think he's pretty balanced but I wouldn't mind at all if he got a minor buff in any way

11/18/1 masteries,
Current: http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Renek...00000&level=18
Ideal : http://leaguecraft.com/builder/Renek...00000&level=18

so far the games have been pretty short, never actually got to finish my 4th item in a game, wins>losses, but im still testing

Renek is not a tank or a carry, i try not to play him as either

i agree 100% with your core items, although I lke to go for a randuin's omen after i finish ghostblade and then get black cleaver after that. Having a reliable aoe slow that also reduces enemy AS is pretty huge for teamfights, not to mention extra CDR and survivability is awesome.

Right now, I'm liking a
Doran's Shield > CDR Boots > Frozen Mallet > Ghostblade/ Black Cleaver

By then, the game is over. :/

Past few games I've had success starting with boots + 3HPots, rushing Ionian CDR boots, then some survivability depending on the amount of gold I have. Sometimes it's straight to Spirit Visage for max CDR, sometimes it's Phage, sometimes it's a Doran's Blade.

Then I build situationally to counter the enemy team, if tanky is necessary, I'll rush Guardian Angel, otherwise, I'll go for Brutalizer (if I didn't get Spirit Visage), and then phage + damage items.

Guardian Angel sounds silly, I agree, but what I've found out is that if you can get it before 25 minutes, that revive is ALOT more effective than end game. You can rush in to a teamfight, cause havoc, get focused down, revive, pop your ultimate, Q, and wipe them out. This will result in a teamfight victory, and 1 or 2 towers down in your favor.

EDIT: By the way, since the buff, is Renekton a viable jungler now?
