As part of the event The Hunt Is On!, RengarSquare.png Rengar and KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix are assigned to defeat one another in battle. The first to score a kill on the other claims victory (assists count). The event begins randomly after KhaZixSquare.png Kha'Zix has used all 3 evolution points, RengarSquare.png Rengar is in possession of the Bonetooth Necklace item.png Bonetooth Necklace with at least 10 stacks, and all members of both teams must be alive for the event to start.
