Renekton is a fighter-type champion in Wild Rift that is best suited in Baron Lane but can be played in the Jungle or Mid Lane in certain situations. He has pretty high base damage with decent sustain that allows him to survive team fights while continuously dealing damage to enemies around him. The problem is, his abilities are far too simple that it is very predictable and can often put you in a bad situation against experienced players.
