Lore

On every wall of his den, the trophy hunter Rengar mounts the heads, horns, claws, and fangs of the most lethal creatures in Valoran. Though his collection is extensive, he remains unsatisfied, tirelessly seeking greater game. He takes time with every kill, studying his prey, learning, and preparing himself for the next encounter with the one monster he never managed to defeat.

Rengar never knew his real parents, but was raised by a human who was revered as a legendary hunter. He was an ideal pupil, intently absorbing the lessons of his father, and improving them with his uncanny feral instincts. Before his mane had fully grown, Rengar set off on his own and claimed a wide territory for himself. Along its perimeter, he mounted the skulls of his slain prey - a warning to would-be aggressors. He thought undisputed reign of a region would fulfill him, but instead, he grew restless. No beasts in his domain proved challenging prey, and without formidable adversaries to push his limits, Rengar's spirit waned. He feared that no worthwhile game remained, that he would never again feel the thrill of the hunt. Just when things seemed their bleakest, he encountered the monster. It was a disturbing, alien thing, distinctly out of place in his world. It bore huge scything claws and devoured any animal that strayed across its path. Overzealous at the prospect of a challenge, Rengar ambushed the monster in haste. It far outclassed anything he'd hunted before. Their fight was savage, and each suffered crippling wounds. Rengar lost an eye, but the most grievous blow was to his pride. He had never before failed to make the kill. Worse yet, the severity of his injuries forced him to retreat. Over the following days, he hovered on the threshold between life and death. He was wracked with pain, but beneath it, he felt a glimmer of joy. The hunt was on. If such powerful beings existed in the world, he would find them, and stack their heads high. The monster, however, was a kill he wanted to savor. On his den's largest wall, he reserves a space for the beast's head, a trophy he swears will one day be the centerpiece of his collection.

"Prey on the weak and you will survive, prey on the strong and you will live."

Patch History

v6.9

E no longer flies in random directions.

These are mostly bugfixes, with the exception of Bola Strike. Previously, Bola Strike would always try to fire at the location Rengar targeted once its cast delay completed. When targeting distant points, Rengar's movement (ex. a jump strike out of ult) during Bola Strike's short cast time wouldn't change much. When targeting a nearby spot, however, Rengar could suddenly end up in front of the target location he had previously been behind. Bola Strike would then fire in the complete opposite direction it was cast. We're changing Bola Strike's targeting system to fix that unreliability.

Unseen Predator.png Passive - Unseen Predator

THUNDER CAT : Rengar's jump strikes now proc Energized effects (Statikk Shiv, etc.)

Savagery.png Q - Savagery

SHARP CLAWS : Fixed a bug where Savagery consumed Spellblade or Dead Man's Plate effects without dealing damage

Bola Strike.png E - Bola Strike

TARGETING : Bola Strike fires toward the spot Rengar targeted in the direction Rengar cast it
CAST TIME : Mostly 0.25 seconds but sometimes 0.125 seconds 0.25 seconds
TANGLED UP : Fixed a bug where reaching max Ferocity at the same time as casting Bola Strike (ex. during Thrill of the Hunt) could put Em ed Bola on cooldown or immediately consume Rengar's Ferocity stacks

Thrill of the Hunt.png R - Thrill of the Hunt

NOT THRILLED : Fixed a bug where Rengar sometimes only gained 4 Ferocity after exiting Thrill of the Hunt


v6.3
E cast time lowered. E now starts behind Rengar if cast midleap.

After analyzing Rengar's performance and listening to feedback on 6.2, we're pulling back a bit on exactly how easy it is to outplay his ganks. For instance, Rengar's delay on casting Bola Strike is high enough that running toward his leap causes the Bola to whizz right right over. We're in search of… not quite happy kitty time, but content kitty time for this change.

General

REMOVED KITTY CONSISTENCY : No longer lands just short of the target

Bola Strike.png E - Bola Strike

CAST TIME : 0.25 seconds 0.125 seconds
HUNTING PREP : Bola Strike now begins slightly behind Rengar when cast while leaping
EASY PREY : Fixed a bug where Bola Strike wouldn't fire if Rengar was disabled during the cast time.


v6.2
Q's burst damage is down, but the damage buff is higher. Bola Strike now has a cast time even if Rengar is casting it mid-air. R's Exclamation Point of Death now gives a longer range warning. You'll probably still die.

General

KITTY CONSISTENCY : When Rengar jumps from stealth or the brush, he now lands very slightly short of the target. Like 1/16th of a Teemo short. This will prevent overzealous Rengars who occasionally jump right on top of their target, only to throw their Bola past them.

Empowered Savagery.png Q - Empowered Savagery

DAMAGE SCALING : 50% total attack damage 30% total attack damage
ATTACK DAMAGE : BUFF +10% bonus attack damage +20% bonus attack damage

Bola Strike.png E - Bola Strike

0.25 SECONDS TO LIVE : Bola Strike now has a cast time (0.25 seconds) when Rengar casts it while mid-air
HAIL MARY : Rengar will now properly throw his Bola Strike if he tried to do it mid-air but the targeting cursor was out of range

Thrill of the Hunt.png R - Thrill of the Hunt

EXCLAMATION MARK RANGE : 1250 1450


v5.4

Simply put, this was a novel idea for Rengar that was unlocked by the addition of Trinkets in the 2014 Season, but it ended up being super complicated and often caused a ton of bugs. By moving it to a buff, we're keeping the exact same functionality but finally allowing Rengar to have a Poro Snax. You heard us.
  • Bonetooth Necklace Yellow20.png Bonetooth Necklace
    • SORRY TRINKET COLLECTORS : All trophy collection mechanics and bonuses have been moved from Rengar's trinket slot to a permanent stacking buff due to some bug issues with trinket upgrade paths

v5.1

"We're making readability improvements to a bunch of the champion portrait icons which were added or updated over the past few months."
  • PORTRAITS : The following champion portrait icons have been updated:
    • Azir, Cho'Gath, Ezreal, Gragas, Graves, Janna, Jarvan IV, Kayle, Kog'Maw, Lee Sin, Malphite, Maokai, Orianna, Renekton, Rengar, Rumble, Shyvana, Sion, Talon, Tristana, Udyr, Vayne, Veigar, Viktor, Zilean

v4.19
Splash Updates

"As we've mentioned previously, the splash art team is engaged in a long-term effort to update our oldest base splashes. A few more are ready to go this patch!"
  • SPLASH : The following champions have received updated base splashes (click the portraits for the full image!)

v4.14
R's cooldown is longer and the warning indicator's range is increased. Also Rengar's prey will always have a warning indicator if he's within range, even if he's hiding behind a wall. Obtaining the giga-rare 'Head of Kha'Zix' gives Rengar more vision while stalking in brush.

"While Rengar's Thrill of the Hunt is usually quite fun for him, we've seen he can be a little frustrating to play against - particularly in the early game when he's roaming everywhere, and in the late game when his prey is usually dead as they see the warning indicator. The short-form of this context would be that we want Rengar's ganking power to... Slow Down!"
  • General
    • BUG-FREE KITTY Fixed a rare bug where Rengar would not leap from a brush if he recently flashed into it
  • HeadofKhaZix.png Head of Kha'Zix
    • NEW DON'T ASK HOW THIS WORKS Rengar now has increased vision range while in a brush with the Head of Kha'Zix
  • Thrill of the Hunt.png R - Thrill of the Hunt
    • NEW X-RAY CAT FINDER Warning indicator now appears even if Rengar is in the fog of war while stealthed. In other words, if Rengar is within 1250 range of any opponent while stealthed via Thrill of the Hunt, they will be notified.
    • LONG RANGE CAT FINDER Warning indicator range increased from 1000 ⇒ 1250
    • COOLDOWN 120/95/70 seconds ⇒ 150/110/70 seconds

v4.12
"This bugfix might be a significant hit to Rengar's jungling effectiveness (he was proccing Madred's Razors twice), but we'll track his performance over time."

  • General
    • A FINE COLLECTION: Rengar will now correctly say a line whenever he upgrades his Bonetooth Necklace

  • Bonetooth Necklace.png Bonetooth Necklace
    • BUGFIX: Fixed a bug where stack bonuses were being lost upon switching trinkets

v4.6
Following up on our Rengar rework, we're giving him power back in two areas where we've heard your feedback: Savagery and Thrill of the Hunt. Rengar's rework is currently doing a lot of things successfully, but we agree that kitty needs a little more claw.

  • Savagery.png Q - Savagery
    • ATTACK ANIMATION SPEED: Increased by 40%
    • BONUS DAMAGE: 20/40/60/80/100 ⇒ 30/60/90/120/150
  • Empowered Savagery.png Q - Empowered Savagery
    • ATTACK ANIMATION SPEED: Increased by 40%
    • BONUS DAMAGE: 20-235 by champion level ⇒ 30-240 by champion level
  • Thrill of the Hunt.png R - Thrill of the Hunt
    • NEW STEALTH ALERT: Now only appears if enemies would be able to see Rengar out of stealth

v4.5
Rengar's received some buffs to his teamfight capabilities. Battle Roar is more effective the more people (or large monsters) he hits (there's no limit!) and empowered Bola Strike deals more damage and roots for longer (Bola Strike is also a long range skill shot). Thrill of the Hunt now only gives a speed boost for Rengar when he's chasing down his prey, but it now gives him tons of movement speed when he breaks out of stealth. In exchange, targets will be alerted when Rengar is stealthed and near leap range (he still won't be revealed). Ferocity abilities now scale independently of the base skill rank so they're always equal in power. Bonetooth Necklace is now a trinket (still offers vision) and doesn't stack attack damage, but it no longer loses stacks on death and yields additional utility as Rengar scores kills or assists.

"Overall, the Rengar rework set out to accomplish two goals: add more depth to his gameplay and allow Rengar to contribute meaningfully to team fights as a hunter of weaker targets. Old Rengar's problem was that he was binary in design - he either got ahead and blew up squishies without recourse, or he fell behind and split pushed indefinitely, relying on his stealth for safe escapes. On its own, split pushing isn't an unhealthy strategy, but Rengar could do it with few tradeoffs (especially given his split pushing speed). Ultimately we preserved the more skill-intensive parts of Rengar, like his ability to stalk foes while moving around the fight, and tuned down his less interactive power. Final point on Bonetooth Necklace: now that it's a trinket it can be positioned as a core progression item for Rengar rather than a risky snowball item slot. Tonight we hunt!"

v4.1 Summary: We fixed a bunch of bugs in Savagery and tweaked Empowered Battle Roar.

Rengar’s overall sustain with Empowered Battle Roar is incredibly high, especially because he can transition from a tank in the mid-game to an unseen predator in the late-game. While this is definitely a nerf to Rengar’s overall sustain, we wanted to maintain his ability to survive in a fight, so the scaling heal will remain a good choice when Rengar’s low on health. The Savagery change means that Rengar now has two seconds to pull off his empowered basic attack instead of six seconds.

  • Savagery.png Q – Savagery
    • Savagery basic attack buff (not attack speed buff) reduced to 2 seconds (from 6 seconds)
    • Fixed multiple bugs that allowed Rengar to use Savagery more frequently than intended
  • Battle Roar.png W - Battle Roar
    • Empowered Battle Roar heal changed to 20 + (10 x level) amplified by a 1% per 1% of Rengar’s missing health (from 40 + (20 x level) health)

v3.13
Context: Rengar's leap out of stealth has insufficient warning for his target, so we changed him to de-stealth at the beginning of his leap instead of mid-leap in order to give his target a fighting chance.
