Prelude

This is a custom rework for Rengar Rengar, the Pridestalker.

Rengar O Rengar, we Ahri love him, but we also Teemo hate him. On one side of the coin we often sort of find comfort in the fact that as a fully offensive Rengar Rengar, one can only do so much other than one-shotting isolated people. And yet, on the other side of the coin, most of us get super freakin' salty when it actually happens to us in person.

Now thematically speaking, the idea of Rengar Rengar as a hunter chewing up isolated squishies might sound a bit if not moderately reasonable, but in actuality, assassination attempts made by fully offensive Rengar Rengars more often than not only ends in one of the two following ways; one, Rengar Rengar successfully assassinates the isolated target, but the target itself is not given a reasonable amount of time required to even attempt at counterplaying, or two, Rengar Rengar fails the assassination and then either gets kited to death or forced to retreat, hence causing the Rengar Rengar player to feel useless (and often actually be useless).

Bluntly speaking now, the only way to resolve this would be to change Rengar Rengar into someone who goes into the heart of the battle and thrives on the presence of multiple enemies, instead of an unfun ball of fur which either eats enemies in < 1 second or gets eaten up by his enemies after failing an assassination in < 2 seconds.

So, how would you change Rengar Rengar into a Fighter, one may ask. Now obviously the answer isn't restricted to one line of some golden prophecy, but it would be wise to say that the stealth aspect of Rengar Rengar needs to be removed. Well that, and some if not all of the following.

  • Make Ferocity into a more interesting and interactive mechanic which dynamically changes to reward the player for being able to adapt to different situations.
  • Increase Ferocity gain when enemy champions are present to increase presence in teamfights.
  • Reduce Ferocity gain when enemy champions are not present to decrease sustain in lane.
  • Remove Rengar Rengar's double-casting so that his burst is now a foreign concept to him.
  • Increase Bonetooth Necklace.png The Bonetooth Necklace's significance to Rengar Rengar so that it is once again actually meaningful to Rengar Rengar's game-play instead of just being a thematic placeholder.
  • Give Unseen Predator.png Unseen Predator a meaningful mechanic so that players actually need to think before using it and are restricted from making absurd plays that makes Rengar Rengar look more like a frog than a hunter.
  • Increase Rengar Rengar's overall sustained damage.
  • Increase Rengar Rengar's overall utility.
  • Increase the amount of decision making Rengar Rengar's overall kit requires.

Well then, here it is. My take on turning Rengar Rengar into a real manly man.

Abilities

Rengar Rengar's abilities have no cost related to them and their uses are limited only by their respective cooldowns. Instead, he uses his secondary resource bar to display his unique mechanic: Ferocity.

Rengar Rengar generates Ferocity whenever he damages enemies with his abilities. Upon accumulating 5 Ferocity, Rengar Rengar gains access to an alternate set of basic abilities, which are modified versions of his basic abilities. The two ability-sets however share cooldowns and activating an empowered ability will consume 5 Ferocity. Rengar Rengar cannot have more than 5 Ferocity and his Ferocity will decay at a rate of 1 Ferocity per 2 seconds if he has not gained any in the last 5 seconds.

Ferocious Predator
Unseen Predator

Stalk: Whilst in brush or in stealth, Rengar Unseen Predator.png Stalks his foes, disabling his basic abilities and gaining 20 / 35 / 50 flat movement speed when moving towards enemy champions.

Kill: Whilst Unseen Predator.png Stalking, Rengar gains 600 / 650 / 700 bonus attack range and his basic attacks cause him to leap at his target upon cast. Casting a valid basic attack while Unseen Predator.png Stalking ends the effects of Unseen Predator.png Stalk, allowing Rengar to cast his basic abilities and granting him 30% / 40% / 50% bonus attack speed for 5 seconds, but disabling Unseen Predator.png Stalk until Rengar is out of combat. If Rengar casts a valid basic attack onto a target whom has vision of him while Unseen Predator.png Stalking, Rengar does not gain bonus attack speed, but will still leap to his target. Champion kills and assists immediately allow Rengar to Unseen Predator.png Stalk again.

Additionally, Rengar begins each game with a unique trinket, Bonetooth Necklace.png The Bonetooth Necklace.

Bonetooth Necklace - Mementos of the Hunt: Rengar collects trophies from his fallen enemies, gaining bonus effects as well as enhancing his abilities based on how many trophies he has. Rengar gains one trophy for each champion kills and assists he scores.

Postlude

This rework took quite a while to do (began writing it up since 7th of Feb), so any ideas, recommendations or opinions on it would be appreciated. If you have any inquiries on how or why some certain mechanics were implemented (such as the restriction on passive or removal of stealth from Thrill of the Hunt.png Thrill of the Hunt), please read the Prelude before asking such questions, as the answer you're seeking for might just very well be there.

As for the new ability Unseen Threat.png Predator's Volition, just keep in mind that it's mostly there for flavor. Rarely does a game go on for so long that The Hunt is On! event occurs anyway (plus all the requirements that must be met for it to occur).
