Heading into the final week of June, Rengar, the Pridestalker, is the top champion to play in the free champion rotation.

Once developers of League of Legends successfully reworked Rengar, he was an unstoppable force. As a jungler or top lane champion, his kit lived up to his assassin tag as a champion capable of quickly finishing foes that were low in health. After his rework, Rengar got several nerfs to his overall damage output but as of now, is in a comfortable state in the Summoner’s Rift.

With the final week of June upon us, Rengar is actually free to play this week in the champion rotation. Summoners who have yet to try him should give him a shot thanks to everything he brings to the table.

Needless to say, stacking a plethora of Attack Damage is the name of the game when it comes to building up Rengar. He currently has a higher success rate in the top lane but could be more fun as a jungler. There is nothing greater as Rengar coming out of the jungle and hits his R – Thrill of the Hunt and is camouflaged until he pounces on the closest enemy champion for a guaranteed critical hit.

When it comes to banning champions, keep in mind that Rengar tends to have problems going up against Jarvan IV, Yasuo, and Riven. If you’re going top lane, make sure to let your teammates know to especially ban Jarvan IV since he’s able to heavily contain and counter Rengar easily.

Besides his burst power, Rengar has a pretty good stun ability via his E – Bola Strike which under Ferocity, can root an enemy champion. When setting up your Runes, go with Greater Mark of Attack Damage (9), Greater Glyph of Magic Resist (9), Greater Seal of Armor (9), and Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage (3).

Overall, enjoy playing as Rengar this week as you might love him to the point of adding him to your collection. If you really hit it off with him in whichever role you prefer, you’ll be getting some of those new Honor points in no time since he’s a difference maker!
