looking for tips on Rengar v Garen

#1tweakerlimePosted 3/28/2013 8:24:25 AM
Been playing a lot of rengar top lately, and doing pretty well. I typically try to play very aggressive in the early going because he really has a need to snowball rather than just farm til late game. So far, I have been having problems against Garen.

Even if i get an early gold lead, garen still manages to out tank me and out damage me regardless of the items i buy. Would it be better to max my W first against him? Should i build tanky rather than damage against him? Any tips?

two problems i've noticed

1. You're playing Rengar

2. You're laning against Garen

Rengar < Garen

Hope he doesn't cripple you in laning phase so you can get your core items and you can kill the squishies.

Rengar is true bushmaster
if Garen wins lane it's because one of them was dumb

lategame yeah he's just going to be an unkillable brick but that's your adc's concern

The key to beating Garen in lane is to never stop harassing him. Wait for him to blow Q or E if you can, abuse bushes for profit and fun. Don't let his passive start ticking if you can avoid it.

Rengar isn't "garbo" he's just not stupidly OP like at the end of season 2 when Stanley was building Sunfire cape and 2 dorans and 1v5 people in OGN tournaments

Sounds like you lack skill with rengar and can't get easy wins with him. Thats perfectly fine. I guess you don't have any tips for playing rengar than. So move along please.
