Taking it to Toplane by Voyboy
The Laning Phase
Renekton performs best in a solo lane where he can farm and pressure his opponent. Due to his high mobility and burst damage he can get to just about anyone in the lane. He can farm without fear of ever having to go back due to his life steal and use of Rage. When you build up 50 Rage, your passive kicks in and you gain an extra effect on your spells. With this 50 Rage I like to use Cull the Meek for the extra lifesteal cap and extra damage. His high mobility and burst allow him to pressure almost anyone out of CS or even out of the lane. Once Renekton hits level 6 his ultimate ability allows him to win a 1 on 1 fight against almost any champion. There are few champions that do give Renekton trouble early on with their poke, but once he gets all three of his abilities, you’ll find yourself winning the lane. CS is extremely easy to get with Renekton, almost too easy because you will find yourself always pushing the lane.
Renektons lifesteal allows him to get in your opponents face while keeping him in the lane. Having a rage bar also allows him to constantly pressure without fear of running out of mana. When you gain 50 Rage use Cull the Meek to gain a substantial amount of heal. His mobility also allows him to avoid a gank with ease, and avoid some skill shots. With how far Renekton can go in a short amount of time it is very hard to get a kill on him.
Renekton is a highly effect champion when it comes to harassing his opponent. Not only is he able to trade blows and use his spells on the enemy champion due to his high sustainability, but his skills also provide a substantial amount of burst and control over an engagement. If you want to harass you dive to the target with Slice and Dice (make sure you land it), Cull the Meek, auto attack, Ruthless Predator, auto attack, and dive out again with Slice and Dice. You can switch up the order, but this provides a safe exchange of damage.
Renekton is a quick champion that can jump over small walls as well as quickly dive a large distance if he hits a target with his first dive. If Renekton lands his first Slice and Dice, and your target flashes, you can slice and dice again back to them quickly regaining ground without having to use your flash. Renekton’s stun and double dive make it almost impossible to gank him. When it comes to your teammate ganking, it is easy to get to your opponent and stun him, allowing your teammate to catch up.
How to Farm with Renekton
Just last hit with your auto attack for the most part. At around level 7-8 you can clear the creep wave with Slice and Dice and Cull the Meek instantly.
Renekton's role in a team fight is a combination of initiator, tank and burst AoE damage.
Renekton will always be the initiator of team fights. It is easy for him to get in and out of the fight. Renekton can just dive in and find a target to stun and dive out. Hopefully when you first dive in your team follows, otherwise you will find it difficult to get out. Because Renekton is also a tanky target, it is possible the enemy will walk right by you to your carries. If this happens dive by them and get to their carries. Renekton does a deceptive amount of damage if left alone and Dominus is up. With Renektons ultimate and Cull of the Meek, Renekton can deal a lot of damage to an entire team. If you find yourself on cooldown, just start auto attacking to build up more rage for your next rotation.
In a solo lane, Renekton can get really aggressive at level 3. At this point you will have one level into all your skills and you can begin to dive in and do your rotation on your enemy. If you become too aggressive off the bat and take to much damage, sit back and try to lifesteal with Cull the Meek. With Cull the Meek and Slice and Dice, you should find it easy to pick up CS. Because Renekton pushes his lane so easily, you may find yourself never unable to get a gank, but with Renektons ability to harass it may not be necessary. Also as you push the lane into the tower, it should give you the gold advantage over your opponent since he will find it harder to get CS over the tower. Play as aggressively as you can, but make sure you can always make it out of the fight.
TIps and Tricks
Slice and Dice
When running from a gank make sure to go through the ganker with Slice, and then dive again with Dice. You can also use Slice and Dice to make it a couple areas over some of the terrain features on the map, most notably Baron and Dragon, but Renekton can also dash over many of the small terrains that are prevalent throughout the jungle.
I’m sure I’ve gone over this enough but when diving in to your opponent, it is easy to pressure them from getting CS while also harassing them. First dive in with Slice, Cull the Meek, auto attack, Ruthless Predator, auto attack and Dive out.

Synergies and Counters
As an initiator/bruiser Renekton works well with anybody that can burst or do sustained damage. Also with his AoE, champions that can control a fight also work well. His ability to start a fight makes a team that can deal damage and control a fight favorable.
In the laning phase, any champion that can kite or outsustain Renekton is usually a good pick. Kennen and Elise can harass him from afar and keep a safe distance whilst lee sin can just out sustain and out harass Renekton due to his kit and mobility.
