25. Renekton

So, you’ve made it this far. Halfway to the best champion in the game, and we still have a long way to go, so prepare yourself!

Anyways, on to the next champion.

Renekton is a lane bully with no reliance on a resource to cast spells, making him one of the few champions in this category in the game. Some have complained that this makes him take less skill than other champions, but it replaces it with the constant need to be applying pressure. Because of Renekton’s poor scaling, he needs to be multiple steps ahead of his opponent constantly or he will quickly be overtaken by nearly every top laner.

This endless battle for control in any Renekton lane is what propelled him to 25 on this list. As a rule of thumb, characters based around aggression are more enjoyable to play and watch, and the fact that his combos are so slick, and reward strong play, make him an attractive candidate.

Also, who could forget this famous AP Renekton which was whipped out on the LCS stage. It’s too bad we don’t see much of this BM anymore, mostly because of the potential risks, so when it does happen it’s a special moment.
