Summoner Spells Back to Top

There's no much choice here. I highly recommend teleport because of the high map pressure and because you can get to lane faster in the early game if you get killed, but ignite could work if you get a favorable matchup who you can go agressive against.

New Runes Back to Top

The only good rune for 86.png in the Resolve tree isGrasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=32Grasp of the Undying, as he can't even activateAftershock.png?width=32Aftershock and Guardian.png?width=32Guardian would be useless in a solo lane, but do not underestimate it. It gives an extra little heal to your garenq.png on top of the not very bad bonus damage.
Next i likeBone%20Plating.png?width=32 Bone Plating for it's high trade potential. You can take Demolish.png?width=32Demolish if you like to, but I wouldn't recommend so, as you lose a lot of lane pressure.
The next rune you want to choose is Second%20Wind.png?width=32Second Wind, it synergizes very well with your pasive and grants you even more sustain. Conditioning.png?width=32Conditioning could work but i think it's not worth it because you already get a lot of bonus armor from your garenw.png pasive.
Next you want to take either Overgrowth.png?width=32Overgrowth or Perseverance.png?width=32Unflinching. The slow resistance Perseverance.png?width=32 gives is really good in general and even better against matches like 75.png and also the tenacity adds to your garenw.png active, rendering cc almost useless if you time it correctly. The boost on your healing from Overgrowth.png?width=32 applies to your pasive (I think), and as you can imagine, it is really useful for sustaining in lane.

On the next tree you should choose Precision, because it has one, if not the best, rune for garen. You MUST take Coup%20De%20Grace.png?width=32Coup de Grace. The extra execution potential that it gives to your already very scary ultimate garenr.png is perfect, and will give you even more damage on your garene.png and garenq.png. Afer this you take Legend%20Tenacity.png?width=32Legend: Tenacity, because the tenacity it gives is really good and adds up with your garenw.png active, and, if you take it, with Unflinching.

I don't think any other path for maxing abilities would work better than this.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Best starting option overall. The pasive from Doran's shield works marvels.
    Kind of good too, but i prefer the health regen from the shield and the little resistance.
    Buy against heavy aa based champs like Yasuo or tryn if you want.

Core Items

    Best item for garen so far. Your E applies the armor penetration from it's pasive really fast, which ads up to the armor pen. from your E if you hit 4 spins.
    Follow up items. Chose which one to buy first depending on the course of the game.
    Both good items. as before, choose depending on the match.
    Build as fast as possible. The movement speed pasive is perfect for garen as it helps to chase down enemies and apply your E.

Situational Items

    Take this earlier if you are fed.
    Build Bramble Vest before Phage if you are against an aa based champ and then complete your black cleaver. You may have bought a cloth armor earlier, which will help.
    I usually buy this as last item. The life regen from your passive, Spirit Visage and This is masive, even more than if you were in your base.
    Take this instead of Sterak if you think you'll be able to nuke a squishy, but I don't recommend it.
    Buy last. with this, the runes, and your W active CC is useless agaisnt you.
    Really good item for chasing down targets with your Q, and really good in teamfights.
    I buy this with Randuin and Dead Man's if the other team has an AIDS p*ssy champ like Ezreal or Teemo.
    Against a heavy AP team.

In every game you must build 3071.png Black Cleaver asap. It's powerspike is masive. Then you must try to build
 3065.png Spirit Visage or 3742.pngDead Man's Plate. You'll decide which one to buy first depending on theon the match. Afetr these items, your next ones will be situational.

If you're against a 157.png,a 23.png or similar champs buy a 3075.pngThornmail after Black Cleaver.
Buy 3194.pngif you need Magic resist.
If the enemy have very annoying champs like 150.png, 81.png or 17.png i always build 3071.png, 3742.png, 3143.png and 3800.png and just rush at them on a teamfight. This will force them to stay really back because you can oneshot them and they won't be very useful during that fight.

I usually buy 3053.png afeter 3071.png, 3065.png and 3742.png. The tenacity the pasive gives you when popped, combined with your garenw.png and the Runes can bring you up to 100% tenacity making CC useless.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Not very popular, but very easy to beat as Garen. Just rush a Bramble Vest and then finish your Black Cleaver and try not to fight him in his ultimate

VS

Camille

Easy

With your W she shouldn't be able to do much to you. Her passive is pretty annoying but she alone isn't much of a threat.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

VS

Darius

Medium

Darius is a scary dude, as bullshit of a champ to play against as you. Vs him just do really short trades. Go with your Q hit a couple of spins with your E  and run away while he is silenced. If he grabs you mash your W and run away. Don't let him get his 5 stacks

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

Mundo has a lot of sustain and can play really safe farming from the distance with his Q. If he plays defensive there's not much you can do. Just farm and dodge his Q and buy Executioner's Calling to reduce his R healing.

VS

Fiora

Medium

This is a balanced matchup. The one with most skill will win. What i like about playing vs fiora is the mindgames with her W, where you go against her expecting to bait his W so you can Q, but she also knows what you're planing so she saves it and so on...

VS

Galio

Easy

His shield is useless agaisnt your ad abilities in lane. Overall you shouldn't have any problems against him.

VS

Gangplank

Hard

Not much you can do. Most GPs just play it extremely safe early in the game. Enjoy your almost free lane while it lasts, because later on he destroys you.

VS

Gnar

Hard

One of Garen's biggest counters. You can't do sh*t m8. Just stay safe and pray for a gank.

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

Really annoying early in the game. Stay safe until you egt your visage and then you shouldn't have any problems

VS

Illaoi

Easy

Dodge her tentacles so she can't heal and you shouldn't have any problems. Ah and ru away if she ults, you're strong, but not a god.

VS

Irelia

Easy

Irelia is really popular is the meta of the patch 8.8, but she is nothing vs a Garen.

VS

Jax

Medium

DON'T Q HIS E. That being said, time your W to block his stun and then Q and E. Overall it's a pretty even matchup

VS

Jayce

Medium

He can kite you, but if you're able to reach him you destroy him. A bit of help from the jungler would be nice.

VS

Kayle

Hard

Same as with Gnar and Teemo. She kites you very easily and blocks your R. Stay safe and try to farm.

VS

Malphite

Easy

You hard counter Malphite. With your Black cleaver and your E you don't reduce only his defense, but his damage aswell, as his W and E scale with armor

VS

Maokai

Easy

The tree is very tanky, but he isn't much of a threat to Garen. Try to pick a kill if you can, but don't count on it as it is really hard.

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

He is not very popular, but he is a very good pick vs Garen. His E stops your pasive, and because it has no cost, he just spams it. Also his pasive blocks most of the damage from your Q, and once he gets a rylay you're perma slowed thanks to his w and his R.

VS

Nasus

Easy

Use your Q to cleanse his W and block his Q's with your W. Try to freeze lane and don't let him farm easily. After lvl6 if you want to R him do it while he is silenced or he'll R and survive.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

In lane he beats you. Try to W his spears and his combos and stay safe. Once you get Black Cleaver he is an easy prey.

VS

Renekton

Easy

Just W his stun and you're ready to go. Also same as with Nasusm, R him while he is silenced.

VS

Riven

Easy

Not a hard match. Just W her combos and silence her before or after she shields but not during.

VS

Swain

Hard

Stay safe and don't die. he kites you really easily.

VS

Teemo

Hard

You can't do much vs him. He kistes you and blocks your W. If you want to combo him start with your E and Q him after his blind, but you'll lose most of the trades.

VS

Tryndamere

Medium

He has high dps and can render your R almost useless, but if you play it smart you can beat him. Care with the conqueror rune.

VS

Yasuo

Easy

Take Bramble Vest asap and you're ready to go. Try to Q his tornados so his R won't do much damage. Also in lane start the fight pressing E Q so his shield will fall to one of your spins and then Q so he can't block the damage.

VS

Yorick

Hard

VERY HARD. Garen's biggest counter. if he traps you in his W auto attack and Q for the auto reset and run away. You can't beat him, even if he has the mark. Do not attempt trades in lane or he will kill you.
