Difficulty: Moderate

Surviving alone in the wilderness, Rengar the Pridestalker learned quickly about hunting. Then came the day when he was tasked to hunt down Kha’Zix who took out his eye in their first encounter.

Rengar Gameplay Tips
Let’s go straight to the point, Kha’Zix is not a simple champion to use. You will need to practice to get its bearings right, together with good itemization and skills in general. These few tips will help you maximize this Voidreaver in battle.

  • Make sure you farm sufficiently in the early game (with the help of an ally) to help Rengar level up faster. Be very careful when engaging in early ganks.
  • Be observant and patient. When there’s a chance to go for an easy kill resulting from over-committing enemies, go for it. Rengar has the tools of the trade built for the kill.
  • While waiting on the bush when going for an ambush, use your Strike Ball to start your surprise, big assault.
  • Be familiar with different attack routes and use them to plan your attacks on different enemies. Once you master Rengar’s rotations, you will have no trouble in attacking.
