After some initial missteps, the long-awaited remake of Rengar is coming to League of Legends. The changes are intended to modernize Pridestalker and give him a boost in the new jungle meta, while also removing some of his differences.
Rengar has been dealt with pretty rough in League of Legends over the past few years. Pridestalker has always had a dedicated player base, but he’s been a bit lacking due to several system reworks.
He was hit particularly hard at the start of Season 12 with the addition of Chemtech Drake — though Riot fixed that quickly by buffing him, and then just straight-up removing the monster. Dragon.
He’s still struggling with 46.50% win rate at all levels in his favorite jungler role. However, The Pridestalker has been finding success in the top lane more than in the jungle these days, with nearly 50% win rate.
After promises of a remake in Season 11Riot has finally delivered version 12.6 of League of Legends with a Rengar rework focusing only on “positive changes”.
‘Phlox’ developer broke the offers, targets all abilities, except Rengar’s W, Battle Roar. His passive content is now more forgiving, with the radioactivity timer for Ferocity being increased. This will make his ganks a bit more effective.
His Q will now always be a critical hit, with the ability to increase damage proportional to his damage. This means that the Pridestalker doesn’t have to try and get a 100% crit chance in each match, although items like Infinity Edge are still very powerful. Plus, it now focuses on turrets, which greatly increases his siege power as a top laner when he hits Essence Reaver.
“The Q crit changes are so that when playing Rengar for a low crit chance, you don’t just expect a hit crit, and let it dry if you don’t get that 20/40%,” says Phlox.
Bola Strike, his E ability, no longer has a cast while jumping and will reveal hit enemies for two seconds. If you hit a Bola Strike on a target in a bush or on a wall, you’ll now be able to track more easily.
Finally, the reveal of his ultimate, Thrill of the Hunt, will cover a small area around your target so you can make better choices about jumping in.
Finally took the time to bring the Rengar changes back to you. This list will be released in 12.6.
Will provide more in-depth context in subsequent tweets. I ended up aiming to only send positive changes to Rengar players. This is not the place for riskier changes.

“Rengar has some pretty awkward mechanics right now, especially with W and Passive. I think W not being on any of the assassination combos definitely feels bad given a lot of his builds,” admits Phlox.
“I decided to make sure I could find something that made Rengar feel better playing instead of sitting here hoping to find time to try to get some version of the magic character that would be fun. more or not really more interesting. ”
The Rengar changes will go into effect as part of patch 12.6 for League of Legends on March 30. Zeri’s major nerfs and an overhaul to maintain the mechanics are also expected.
