League of Legends: Wild Rift Renekton – release date and build

We take a look at Wild Rift's Renekton, speculating on the release date and a viable build for when he arrives

The new champions are coming thick and fast to League of Legends: Wild Rift, and it looks like a fan favourite is up next. That’s right, it’s Renekton, the almighty crocodile fighter, who is rumoured to drop as early as May 12. That makes him the last fighter to launch as part of the patch 2.2 drop.

In League of Legends: Wild Rift, Renekton is a fighter-type who primarily plies his trade in the Baron Lane, but he can also Jungle if necessary. While we’ll have to wait for the full release to see where he stacks up on our League of Legends: Wild Rift tier list, we reckon he’ll see plenty of use.

In this guide, we’re going to speculate on the Wild Rift Renekton release date, take a look at some potential builds for his various roles, and detail his skills to give you a good idea of how he’ll play ahead of launch. If you’re looking for decent Baron Lane builds in the meantime, check out our Wild Rift Darius build and Wild Rift Malphite build guides.
