Champion Sneak Peek: Rengar, the Pridestalker

By NeeksNaman [1]

Your enemy's heart beats nervously, pumping faster as you approach. The time is right for the perfect Unseen Predator.png strike, that split-second when your victim thinks no one has followed.

Whether you meet Rengar Rengar face-to-face on the battlefield or back-to-blade during the hunt, you're never alone and never safe when the Pridestalker's chosen you as his Bonetooth Necklace.png trophy.

Rengar, the Pridestalker, Revealed!

By NeeksNaman [2]

The ultimate predator's many things: methodical, determined, and unrelenting. Meet Rengar Rengar, the Pridestalker, one of the most-feared hunters in all of Valoran, whether he's Savagery.png slashing his way through foes or Unseen Predator.png leaping from the shadows of the brush to take enemies by surprise. Rengar's monstrous, most-sought Head of Kha'Zix.png prize, however, remains at large, missing from the Pridestalker's impressive Bonetooth Necklace.png trophy wall.

As a top-laner or jungler, Rengar's brutal Savagery.png strikes and Battle Roar.png roars tear through his enemies. When you use any of his abilities on an enemy, you generate a point of Ferocity. Once you've stored five Ferocity points, Rengar's skills become available instantly and the next skill activated gains a powerful new secondary effect. Players will have to strategically manage their Ferocity, activating the appropriate ability for each precarious situation. Rengar's Unseen Predator.png passive also grants his auto attack a leap when used from the brush or while invisible, giving this apex predator immense ganking potential from hiding.

Rengar's ultimate ability, Thrill of the Hunt.png Thrill of the Hunt, grants him invisibility, extra movement speed, and Ferocity points. The true power behind Rengar's Thrill of the Hunt.png ultimate is his visibility of enemies under the fog of war. Rengar enters an all-consuming hunting mode, allowing him to see enemy locations and their hearts beating faster and louder as he closes in.

No hunter would be whole without his trophies and Rengar is no stranger to collecting the prized remains of his downed prey. Playing as Rengar grants optional access to the Bonetooth Necklace.png Bonetooth Necklace, a unique store item that collects trophies as he racks up kills and assists. Slaying enemies will increase the power of the necklace and new bonuses unlock when trophy thresholds are met. You're never forced to purchase or use the Bonetooth Necklace.png Bonetooth Necklace, but are rewarded for an aggressive playstyle if you choose to use it.

Inside Design: Rengar's Mechanics

By RiotGenzer [3]

The Fields of Justice have never been more dangerous than when Rengar Rengar, the Pridestalker, prepares for the hunt. With a new resource system, an optional Bonetooth Necklace.png item in the shop, and a dynamic Unseen Predator.png passive that interacts when he's stealthed or in the brush, Rengar's bringing many new mechanics to strike down his prey. To learn more about these new mechanics, we went straight to the source and talked to Trevor 'Classick' Romleski about Rengar's kit.

The Creation of Rengar: Art and Style

By RiotGenzer [4]

In order to bring a ruthless hunter like Rengar Rengar to life, the designers had to fuse every aspect of champion design into a predatory experience that feels as ferocious as the champion himself. Getting players inside Rengar's head for the primal hunt was the biggest challenge in his creation. What began as a tricky proposition eventually became a compelling champion with an Thrill of the Hunt.png ultimate ability that sums up the brutal and methodical Rengar playstyle.

2017 Season Update
