    How is Renekton right now?

    Hey all, I noticed Renekton is coming up on the next sale and I have always enjoyed playing him when he is free. How is he currently in Season 3? I don't fight him very often but the few I have recently just haven't really been anything worth writing home about, but apparently he was a top pick for bans in a recent tourny.

    How is Renekton currently? Is he pretty much strictly solotop?

    Thanks!

    Renekton just fits right now. He can easily get to the back line, he can build tanky, he shreds armor, he has a strong laning phase.

    He is in a pretty good spot currently so it's worth it to play him if you find him fun.

    I see a lot of people playing him in ranked successfully. He's a master of baiting (and surviving) enemy junglers and laning opponents into turret diving you.

    Probably the biggest lane bully at top, considered one of the, if not the best top right now according to a lot of pro players.

    Awesome early game, once you hit level 2 you can start pushing out in your lane. Quick movement with a stun is awesome. Also great farm. Makes for a very strong mid-game because you will have a big lead if your opponent isn't smart. Falls off a lot at end-game though, so you need to push hard mid-game to make up for it.

    Same as always, great front line who you cannot ignore due to a great ability to dive and lock down your adc as well as been able to do a great job protecting your own adc. He has always been strong, people only care now because pro's play him.

    he is okay in arranged 5's, a good tanky frontline for your team, not that great solo que, cannot carry a entire team, garen is more tanky and can do damage.

    If you can get 1-3 kills in lane vs your opponent you can be a real threat early to mid. The problem i always face however, is that when you reach late with renekton you don't do enough damage anymore.

    You can play him mid/jungle/support also but he won't do anything others can't also do (better).

    But yeah still a solid top laner, just make sure you use his strong early / mid to your advantage.

    According to Maknoon, the best top laner in the world, Reneketon is top 3 for top lane

    He can also be played as a support (I love Reneks/Mundos supports!)

    I don't. Don't give people silly ideas.

    Was merely stating my opinion. I think he can be pretty strong early but if you don't get enough kills, you fall off really badly compared to some other top laners.

    He's VERY strong, and no, he does not fall off lategame, 'dis horsecrap.

    Just finished a game where I ended 1/5 when lane-phase ended (seriously, fuck Elise) but ended the game as 9/5/6. I've just recently picked him up and am still learning his ropes and all, but he is very strong throughout the entire game.

    He's ok. My beef with him is everyhting he does, Xin does better. But then, that's prob the case with most AD's now.

    When you build Renekton tanky (aka properly), there is no falling off. He gets to the back line effectively, can take a load of damage from the opposition, and has a 1.5 second stun.

    He has few counters in lane...and being able to dash twice is a pretty good safety net against jungle ganks.

    I'd go out on a limb and say he doesn't "suck." Granted, if I had to choose between completely mastering Olaf or Renekton...I'd probably go with Olaf.

    edit: I wasn't whining about anything. Your post offered absolutely nothing and I called you out on it.

    Silly? But he really can. I've won many Mundo/Renek support games.

    Nothing personal but I hope I won't have to play with you in a game

    Those 2 offer hardly anything in lane (mundo has easily dodged cleavers and rene has good early game damage which can be avoided as well) compared to a "proper" support who has far more utility and doesn't need that much gold unlike those two.

    the hard part about dodging Mundo's cleavers is not at max range when he's using them to harass, it's when you can't veer left due to Jungler X with CC of doom running as fast as he can to you and Mundo's not at max range anymore.

    for Mundo to deal tons of damage he essentially only needs a sunfire cape and voila, 135 magic aura damage per second + his enhanced autos + his cleavers... yea, it's gonna hurt. not enough to go "..." but enough for him to just be a meat wall of doom tanking everything going his adc's way.

    that said he brings zero things to the table to boost your carry other than walking skillshot blocker.

    Renekton has a nuke stun and can stick artificially to targets with slice and dice, and even bait teams due to his ultimate. he goes in and forces someone to deal with him thus drawing attention away from the real damage dealers. his prime time in the game is when his brute damage from his abilities have not been outscaled by life steal or armor.

    It really helps to think of him like Garen with a stun, good early game, great damage through abilities early game but unable to scale to "DAFUQ?"-damage.
