Renekton

The Butcher Of The Sands

Renekton INFO

  • Renekton was released on 18 January 2011 and can be purchased from the Riot Store for 4800 IP or 880 RP.
  • Renekton and Nasus both bear physical resemblance to old Egyptian Gods Sobek and Anubis, respectively. However, Renekton's lore is more resemblant of Ammit, a crocodilian demon that, upon Anubis's judgment of a heart's purity, would eat impure hearts; similarally, Renekton judged who was worthy of receiving Nasus' teachings.
  • Renekton's blade-weapon may be a reference to the Klingon bat'leth, from the Star Trek series. Although, Renekton's blade has the grips on the inside edge of the blade where as a traditional bat'leth has them on the outside edge of the blade. Thus it could be a reference to the protagonist's weapon in the Manhwa Jackals, weapon that can be seen here in the front.
  • Renekton's Art Spotlight is the only one that is not of his original skin, but his Outback skin.
  • Because Renekton uses the fury system, his spells don't cost any mana, energy or life to be used. The fury gained through attacks is used to empower them only.
  • The icon for Renekton's Slice and Dice is similar to the icon for Caitlyn's Ace in the Hole.
  • His ability "Slice and Dice" makes reference to cut something into small pieces to analyze it, and is another reference to "blind violence". The movement Renekton makes while doing this ability is also fairly similar to the "death roll" exhibited by many species of crocodilians; where the crocodilian spins its body continuously while holding on with its jaws to tear a chunk of tissue from a large carcass or prey item.

  • Like his brother's ultimate Fury of the Sands, Renekton's ultimate Dominus makes him bigger, gives him more health, and damages surrounding enemies. The difference between the two of them is that Dominus passively grants Renekton Fury, whereas Fury of the Sands grants Nasus bonus Attack Damage based on its AoE damage. The name of his ultimate, Dominus, means master or owner in Latin.

Renekton Counter Tips

  • Pay attention to Renekton's fury bar, as he will most likely play aggressive when it turns red.
  • Most Renekton players will try to turn back to you so that he can use his dash twice when being chased. Deny this by stepping a bit back.
  • Be careful when going in to CS, this will allow him to easily Q for free poke. Try and bait it out so you can CS more easily.
  • If you are really low vs a Renekton and his flash is up, be VERY careful. He can "e" flash for an easy kill.

Renekton DEV INFO

  • Renekton was designed by Xypherous.
  • Renekton is voiced by Patrick Seitz, who also voices Kog'Maw , and Lucian.
  • Renekton was first revealed in the Journal of Justice, Volume 1 Issue 8, as the brother of Nasus, though his name was spelled Renekhton there. It should be noted however that Renekton has technically been in the lore as long as Nasus has, as the story of the conflict between the two brothers has been in Nasus's backstory from the start.
  • His title was previously The Eater of Souls, but was changed to the current title by Riot after his sneak peek.
  • Cull the Meek was originally called Tyrant’s Reach but was changed with the release of the Champion Spotlight for unknown reasons.

RENEKTON STORY

Renekton was once a staunch gatekeeper of ancient Shurima, but in the centuries since the fall of that once-glorious empire, he has been consumed by madness. Now, he is little more than a rage-fueled beast who seeks to kill his brother Nasus, who he believes is to blame for his current state of mind.

Reign of Anger

Renekton gains Fury for every autoattack he makes. This Fury can empower his abilities with bonus effects. Additionally, Renekton gains bonus Fury when he is low on life.

Ruthless Predator

Slice and Dice

Renekton dashes, dealing damage to units along the way. Empowered, Renekton deals bonus damage and reduces the Armor of units hit.
