Summoner Spells

In my opinion I usualy use 14.png + 4.png coz this spells are best for garen! U can increased your dmg combo with Q + E + 14.png and also u can finish enemy with 4.png and your ulti.

Take teleport if u want to help your bot lane, or safe split push (good choice for team rankeds)

Runes

Back to Top ▲

I using Attack damage runes but if u want u can use mov speed runes for better mobility.. But i think its not neccesary for garen.. Blue and Yellow is classic defend runes.. (u can choose between MR/lvl or just MR)

Just fast try of new masteries... I dont tryed it yet...

9/21 is still best way how u can play a bruiser which garen definetely is :)

Ofenese:

Sorcery = 5% CDR! - This masterie is just awesome!
Double-Edged Sword - Not so good masterie but u need it for next masteries in offense tree, anyway it will increase your dmg
Brute force + Martial Mastery = its 14 dmg on 18. lvl and 5 dmg on level 1... its rly good :)

Defense:

Block + Unyielding - one of the best talents which are in defense tree!
Enchanted Armor - Really works well with garen W and other defense items (with 100 armor/MR u will get another 5)
Recovery - 1 or 2 HP per 5s... on garen is this garen useles, but u need take one for next masteries..
Veteran's Scars + Juggernaut - Here is nothing to say, just rly good HP boost! If u have this two masteries u can get about 56 another HP on lvl 1!!! (if u have 650 HP at start just from Juggernaut its + 20 HP :)) In late game when Garen can have about 4k HP its sweet 120 HP, just fron one talent :)
Hardiness or Resistance - this depends on vs who u will play.. If is your oponent AD take Hardiness, vs AP enemy pick Resistance (I using Hardiness alltime, coz armor is more important then MR, even AP champ can harras u with basic attacks since start...)
Perseverance = SECOND GARENS PASSIVE!!! This is just awesome!!! It was nerfed in last patch, but still its 2% of your missing health every 5 seconds!! With 86_64.png passive its really epic sustain... 0,4% of his maximum health EVERY second + this talent makes him really epic!
Second Wind - This talent is great for champs which has some good healing effects, spell vamp, lifesteal, selfhealing, and Garen has selfhealing from his passive.. so its again increase his heal from Perseverance (passive + masteries)
Legendary Guardian - In full teamfight its 15 armor and 7,5 magic resist with 3 points there.. I think on Garen its enough and very helpful talent...
Tenacious - Another 15% of tenacity... this talent will stack with mercury boots, so its awesome! With garen W and Mercury u are on 60% CROWD CONTROL REDUCTION - unstopabble tank!

E is garens primary spell, deals big AoE dmg and have criticaly strike bonus :), Q is second, good dmg, increased bonus speed for a while and great silence, one of the best in a game!

U must start your fight with basic attack (when enemy dont have any slow effect u can start with Q) and after that Q - W - E - Q - R (u can more AA if u can)

Items

Core
Situational

EDIT 7.7.2014:

Garen can have rly a lot of builds... If u are facing vs FULL AD team (AD jungle, AD top, AD mid) which is very popular in these days.. (yasuo, wu, fiora, zed, riven, etc.. on mid) U can build: OMEN, SUNFIRE, THORNMAIL - and they cant even touch u.. :)


And dont forget buying wards every time if u going to base :) + some pots for better sustain on lane


13.12.2014:

R.I.P. in PEPPERONI dear ATMA :'(((((

Garens best item is gone... So guys u can replace it with another tank item or dmg item.. depends on your team.. in every game u will need diferent kind of items.. If u are only one tanky champ in game just take any armor/magic resit item isntead of ATMA...

My actual build seems like this: Doran shield/blade/ cloth armor, depends on enemy on lane... - then second doran blade if u are going well on lane or double long sword and finish brutalizer first.. then go for SUNFIRE if u are vs AD champ or u can build Hexdrinker if u are vs AP! It give u good dmg in start and also some resist...

Then normal Sunfire - Omen - Banshee - Black Cleaver - MAW - Boots... pretty standart build..

OFC u can combinate it.. every game is diferent.. If u are thing that u are good and u dont need be so tanky u can go for IE, Last Whisper or Youmuu's Ghostblade.. With this items it gonna be more fun for u.. but be careful, coz u will be squishy!!

also WARMOG not worth anymore... just dont BUILD IT without ATMA...

Why do you choose to go AD runes instead of armor pen? (Not judging, just curious?)
0
1 year ago
Hey thanks for reply on my guide :)

In my opinion are AD runes much better way then armor penetration.. U will better farm will AD runes and for early trades its much better.. and there is best strong by garen, that first lvl Q.. as u want Q will reset your next autoattack, it means u can get your enemy at lvl 1 on half HP just with that.. AA - Q - AA and its about 200-300 dmg at lvl 1 and even silence is on on enemy.. Armor pene u will get from Black Cleaver and its enough on garen..

Hi i like your guide but if i may add when you play vs a tryndamere he will always push towers when you will not be at top and he will push until someone come so i think this matchup isnt good due to lack of 1v1 power to stop him from pushing

Well I think garen is better even for pushing then tryndamere.. His E on 5. rank will clear all lane of minions.. And Q to turrets is good too :)

No idea why you're building Sunfire Cape as your first item. I understand the fact, that Brutalizer has been used on Garen for too long, but there's a reason why it was and I still think should be. Probably 90 % of the time the first item I build with Garen is Brutalizer and I usually don't even build Sunfire Cape. I probably only build it in like 1 % of the games. Maybe that's why you're matchups seem like nonsense to me.
Darius: Medium difficulty. Pretty much a skill matchup.
Elise: Yes, she is hard, but never winning against her... Not really surprised, if you're building Sunfire against her. The GREAT thing Garen has is his W. That's why he's flexible and can adapt to situations. Against Elise, the first thing you get is magic resistance. I usually go for Negatron Cloack, though I don't get to lane against her often.

Gangplank: Easy. You can force him to choose - either farm with Q or harrass me, but you're not getting to autoattack creeps.
Kayle: Don't remember the last time I played against her, but I don't think it's that bad. Exploiting the bushes should be key to winning this lane.
Lee Sin: MAYBE if you're building Sunfire Cape it's the way you're saying, but you have the early advantage vs him, not late, so that's kinda nonsense as well. You should have the upper hand even before going back. The only thing a good Lee Sin should be able to do against you is max his shield and try to outsustain you. Sure, it's not an easy matchup, but "can kill him after lvl 9" sounds odd.
Malphite and Shen: Bullshit. You can win both lanes and play aggressive. You just need to be aggressive from lvl 1.
Nasus: Skill matchup to be honest.
Pantheon: Hard matchup, as you lose early game.
Rumble: Skill matchup. A good Rumble will shield away everytime you try to engage.

Singed: Easy matchup, BUT you're A LOT WORSE late game. Just zone him out.
Teemo: If Nidalee and Elise is hard, then so should Teemo be. Not saying it's a lane you can't hold against or even win (especially the game, since Teemo sucks), but he's similar.
Vladimir: Medium matchup. You should zone him early. Exploit the bushes.
Yorick: Hard matchup, but pretty much a farm lane. His early harrass and huge sustain is just a huge pain in the ass. If you manage to survive until the first back and get some proper items, it's fine, but otherwise...

Renekton: I'll agree that the matchup is skill based and depends quite a lot on the jungler, but if there's no interruption by the junglers I think Garen has the upper hand. Vs Renekton, you HAVE TO push him out of the lane and not allow him to Q in minions. That's why you should get damage first. That's why Brutalizer works vs him. You only rush tankiness if you died and are losing the lane. But 1 death is not a big deal vs him, unless you lost a lot of creeps and experience.

Knowing when to build which resistances or health is key for playing Garen well.
