Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png
Flash is necessary for Gnar, because it provides extra engage distance and nice escape when getting ganked early.

12.png
99% of the time, you should take teleport on gnar, it allow you to have support your bot / mid lane and grabbing free kills and objectives, and it is a safe spell to make sure you don't get punished when poked out of lane by your opponent.

14.png
Take ignite instead of teleport when you are confident that you can dominate the lane but will lack a layer of damage to secure the kill, but if you failed to get kills early on in the game and snowball with it, it will result in teleport advantage for the enemy team.

11.png 
Take this instead of flash/teleport when facing 90.png74.png, use the smite on malzaharpassive.pngh28gevolutionturret.png to minimize their over all damage, making it safer for jungler to gank your lane. I suggest 11.png12.png since it is always important to have teleport pressure, and you don't really want to engage on those champions anyways.

Masteries Back to Top

There are 3 different set of mastery I use on Gnar, but the most common one I use is 12-0-18, because it provides more sustain and safer trades that allow me to play aggressive in lane without getting punished.

Fury - Provide attack speed 
Feast - Because Gnar is a ranged champion 3/4 of the time, he will not get the best benefit from double edged sword, so take feast for better lane sustain
Vampirism vs Natural Talent  - Take Vampirism when you want more sustain, Natural Talent for more damage.
Oppressor - Gnar have a short cd gnarQ.png which allow him to apply constant slow to his enemies.
Recovery - Fix the low health regeneration that was designed to be one of his weakness.
Tough Skin - Allow for healthier trade in lane, and safer laning phrase when mini-form.
Veteran's Scar - Give Gnar a better chance to survive against ganks and burst damage while in mini-form.
Insight - Gnar want faster cool down on flash for more flashy engages, and perseverance is useless on Gnar because Gnar have one of the lowest health regeneration in the game.
Swiftness - Gotta go fast with mini-form, combined with mini-form w allows you to stick to your target.
Grasp of the Undying - Very good for trade and poke in lane, once you are at 4 stacks, try to hit the enemy to get bonus damage as well as steal some hp for sustain, since most of time you will be mini, it is very easy to proc this.

You can also take 18-0-12 with Fervor of Battle as keystone mastery for sustain damage, or 12-18-0 with Thunderlord as keystone mastery for burst damage with mini-form w stacks as well as mega form combo.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard starting build
    Take this when against hard matchups

Core Items

    Choose one of those as your first item, this will be your core damage item. Cleaver for armor perpetration and movement speed, Mallet for perma-slow that allow you to stick to them, Sunfire when enemy ad top can 100-0 burst you down when you are in mini-form, MAW when enemy ap top can 100-0 burst you down when you are in mini-form. Feel free to build more damage items if you have no problem staying alive during teamfight
    Boots, usually build swiftness for general match-ups, build ninja tabi when enemy is basic attack based, and Mercury's Treads when enemy is heavy ap or have tons of cc
    This will be the tank items gnar could build. Build Randuin for extra armor against ad, build visage warmonger combo for heavy ap composition where enemy adc is already irreverent in the game. Banshee's Veil for general ap resistance. Sunfire for more damage. Gage when enemy have a lot of burst, but you have to be the one engaging.
    Don't forget this when you reached level 9
    Build this on your first back if you only have around 450 gold. You can buy it for effective stats in early game, once you get all the passive stack money, sell it for even more profit.

Situational Items

    Tons of damage
    hurricane acutally works very well on gnar because 3/4 of the time Gnar will be in ranged form. This allow you to kite/chase multiple people with frozen mallet, and proc w's with the high attack speed on multiple target.
    If they are all ad, why not
    When you only want to solo people
    When you want to run fast
    When the game is very objective based, build this to setup waves in the opposite lane, or build it when your enemy built one already.
    Build this for extra damage, but you will be very squishy
