The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Threats to Garen with this build
|Yasuo||Yasuo should be pretty easy since he isnt tanky, and your silence will be able to knock yasuos steel tempest and ult unavailable. His windwall also doesnt affect you since you have no ranged attacks. Play aggressive with your decisive strike lvl 1 because you should be able to win the trades.|
|Fizz||Fizz should be really easy for you. As fizz would almost always be your villian you deal true damage to him. Only thing is he can kite you pretty hard with the troll pole and his urchin strike. So if you feel like fizz is going to get awayor is leading you to an ambush/ youre just sick of chasing him just use your ult and one shot him.|
As it says the trolls and the superior players will be instalocking garen from now on. I am FireSoulDemon which is also my username on league. I am Silver 5 and I love playing nonmeta roles with champions. Such as bard adc. :D My motto is just have fun and always try to Bm as much as you want especially with garen because its soo troll to sit back in late game do pushups while you ragain like 600 health per 5 seconds or something like that. However with ad garen you wont get as much sustain with your passive but you are able to instantly come in and wreck someones face with your lifesteal and damage. Also CRITS!
Pros / Cons
High Sustain Late game
Has a long silence
has great Damage potential
His E ability can crit
good starting stats
doesnt have great early game
Can get kited/peeled
and since garen always trols his enemies you can easily get focused/ camped
You always think you can take more damage then you can just because your garen
Farming in lane can be a pain if youre against an enemy who harasses like teemo. If you against enemies like that you want to stay back until lvl 3 then try to poke them down with your q,e,w combo. If your enemy dies or goes away you should try to push out the wave and farm the whole wave of minions with your e which makes better split pushing so hydra isnt needed but can look cool.
Now this can be really hard so always try to get your upgraded trinket soon so you can keep an eye on the enemy jungleif you see hes doing red or going to red you should make your way over there if you believe youre powerful enough to handle him 1v1 and escape with 2 other enemies chasing you that is if the enemies even notice you. I would say counter jungling should be done at lvl 11 which is when your passive strengthens to not go on cd if hit by smaller monsters. Also Warding is always good for your team. Even if youre a troll you wouldnt want their jungler ganking you without you knowing it right?
Thank you guys so much for reading so far into this. This is my first guide and i hope you guys enjoyed it and have good luck with your nonmeta role games. Its always fun. I know i may not know a bunch of things like exactly when you upgrade your ult so i kinda just guessed where the 2nd level for your ult is. Remember to add me on League if you want it is FireSoulDemon
Also you guys may call me trash but i call myself an experienced player who wants to try out new things. :P
