DH5: 024 - Renekton, The Butcher of the Sands

Alright! The 24th highfive is here!

Keep a wary eye out everyone. It's Renekton! That crocodillian killing machine!

Egypt is a really cool place to pull inspiration and design ideas from. there's that symmetry and almost mathematical air about Egyptian aesthetics that traditional medieval warfare just wont have. Its cool that Riot brought Renekton into the mix as the second Egyptian influence after Nasus. He's got a great looking weapon and is a crocodile man, a cool combo of design choices and a solid looking champ for sure.

In game Renekton is my kind of champion; Burly and Scrappy, ready to get knee deep in a fight and stay there. His steroid feels really strong and his move kit is a pretty tight one. I believe that currently people are claiming that he's a bit too strong but I think that it's just this whole "tanky DPS" problem that the current meta game might be running into. Are you crazy for this croc? drop a story or strat in the comments and keep this scaly slayer sated!

  1. I like how they didn't super overdue the Egyptian feel on him, I think they balanced it out very well :D
