Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png12.pngis my cookie cutter spells for when i go against a lane I know I can win or in blind pick. These spells offer map presence and a way of escape. 14.png4.png is really only for when your up against a 36.png since ignite reduces the healing from his ulty giving you a more garen-teed kill. 3.png12.png is for a hard lanes such as 133.png238.png266.png102.png80.png105.pngand depending on your elo122.png.

Masteries Back to Top

So lets 1st talk about the keystone, I run Strength of Ages because Grasp of undying is not any good on 86.png and this build is all about the early health unkillable tank. Yes, I do run biscuits on 86.png even though it gives mana, biscuits provide 10% more healing and a instant 20 health. For more on my masteries check out my YouTube video explaining all there is to know.

Not too much to talk about here, mainly your probably wondering why I run 2 early points in garencommand.png. I do this for the cold downs for when I trade, every time I don't I pay for it. One more thing I choose to max my garenbladestorm.png 1st because e it offers more damage and pushing power. This ability also has senergy with the runes.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    This is the aoe Ad Happy Garen build
    This is good against skill shot based champs like GankPlank or Kenen.
    This is good against any ap aoe champ such as Cho Gath or Malaphite.
    Dorans isn't really the greatest, however it can be good against Volibear or single target champs.
    This not recommended but if your up against another Garen start this and rush a Hexdrinker.

Core Items

    Aoe AD, If you get this build you are great for late game/mid game fights and split pushing.
    This is the Team Fight Legend build, best used when you don't have a lot of peel...kappa.
    Hehehe if you have a split pusher group and peel for the ad/mid. This is the Peel Build. 4v5 I can't die build and my split pusher is ending the game build.
    against heavy ap, go no further than this build. This is effective mainly against Teemo/Cho'gath/Lisandra/Lulu.
    slight side note, most of you may think you need armor pen like yo mus or Black Cleaver, if you truly need it say a Ramms or hard core Taric. Buy this item.
    This is only for pro Garens, no joke its pretty hard for this to work if you haven't mastered garen. This build is other wise known as the gates dropper garen.

Situational Items

    This item is good if you up against an easy lane. Replace IceBorn with this item. Phreak approved.
    I get a lot of comments complaining that I dumb because I build 250 mana on the sheen. So heres why its amazing, when you activate Garens q sheen procks, sheen does 100% of your current AD. This means your q is nearly doubled, this allows for TONS of early damage. Gauntlets I trinity for ally a lot of utility and pushing power as well as cool down reduction.
    This is op 30% tenacity with elixir, say good bye to cc. Beside Blue Ezreal.

Aatrox

Hard

If this person is mildly good with champion he will always outrade you. I recommend starting 1029.png and on your 1st back pick up a 3751.png then 3082.png for 3143.png then go the regular fighter build.

VS

Akali

Medium

This lane is pretty meh, start 1054.png then go for a 3751.png then a 3512.png then build normaly. I bit of notes on trading is that when she uses her akalismokebomb.png you can easily still garenbladestorm.png inside. Try to punish her pre 6 and if she tries to akalimota.pngakalishadowdance.png follow up with a garencommand.pnggarenslash3.pnggarenbladestorm.png.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

This is a legendary match up. Its not a very hard lane but its easy to make a mistake. His feast.png can catch you off guard so rushing 3211.png and a 3083.png is great for sustain. When he rupture.png and hits instantly garenslash3.png to reduces follow up and remove the slow.

VS

Darius

Medium

This lane is 50/50 start the typical aoe ad build. Trades with 3751.png will always be in your favor. When trading in lane trade when your minions are higher in #s and he goes for caster minions. Your combo is garenbladestorm.pnggarencommand.pnggarenslash3.png run away once this is over, this gives him no time to dariusaxegrabcone.png since he is silenced.

VS

Diana

Medium

This isn't a really popular pick top so I don't have every tip, however rushing a 1057.png then 3751.png then regular breach build will work. She doesn't have very much damage until she has her dianaR.png. Most 131.png will always engage will a dianaQ.png the dianaR.png her dianaW.png is aoe and can be avoided try to garenbladestorm.pnggarencommand.png when this happens.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Start 1054.png for the reduction on his infectedcleavermissilecast.png make sure to have 14.png if not try and out lvl him to lvl 6 for a easy garenjustice.png. I recommend 3057.png and 3123.png for your damage items.

VS

Fiora

Easy

This lane is pretty relaxed , early she will go for your vitals, try to position your self so that its hard for her to do so. If she fights you, you can easily win, just don't garenjustice.png if she has used her fioraflurry.png or if she's not silenced. Stating the basic ad build is ideal.

VS

Fizz

Hard

This champ is honestly cancer to tanks. So sardines will do % health with his fizzseastonepassive.png not even the active he puts a points and every auto will do % health like wtf riot. Play safe try and get early ganks. Start with 1028.png and get 3211.png then get 3155.png then go the usual. Also he will tower dive with his fizzmarinerdoom.png so be careful of this. 105.png takes little or no punishment from tower diving because of his fizzjump.png. I really hate this champion.

VS

Garen

Easy
3155.png

VS

Illaoi

Medium

This can go any way, as long as she doesn't hit her illaoiE.png  her damage is very low. run the typical aoe ad build and you should be fine.

VS

Jax

Easy

In my three and half years of playing Garen I have not once lost this lane. Most say its an iffy lane. Rush a 3068.png and a 3512.png. This should be the one of the most free games ever. However do be care not to garenslash3.png when his jaxcounterstrike.png is active.

VS

Malphite

Hard

I put this as hard not for the landing but what to build, I start 1028.png since I can go either ways with it. If 54.png goes for 3025.png build armor, if he goes for 3027.png go for mr. Not too hard however his landslide.png and surprise ufslash.png banks can lose you lane so be careful of this. Remember your garenslash3.png will interrupt 12.png if he tries to make a play.

VS

Nasus

Easy

This is easy rush a 3068.png and go your normal build. pressure with your garenbladestorm.png and save your garenslash3.png for when he wither.png.

VS

Pantheon

Hard

Im sorry this has happened to you, really Im crying eternally. Make sure you have 3.png if not good luck stay away. Start 1029.png and rush a 3143.png lots of health and 3057.png helps if you ever fight him you have to be 2v1. In lane he's gonna spam pantheon_throw.png try to not engage with garenslash3.png since his passive will block all damage. Using the same combo as the 122.png lane will work. However try avoiding trading with him at all cost.

VS

Renekton

Easy

This doesn't need tips, if you lose this lane its honestly sad. You could go ap Garen for all it matters. FREELO

VS

Riven

Easy

Run the typical aoe ad build and this lane is free. Most 92.png think their champion is good and will fight you even when your ahead in cs and in you  minions, I don't understand. This freelo even if the player isn't suffering from box box'itis. You garenslash3.png will sielnce her and make her useless. Avoid garenjustice.png if you know her rivenfeint.png is up (it has a very short cd).
