Threat Champion Notes
3
Garen You have an advantage vs MOST melee champions simply because it is easier to run from them while being able to lay Waste to them. The few melee champions which are more of a problem are the ones who can leap/dash to you or are very fast.

Tear of the goddes 1st

Some of you may not agree, and it is understandable why. But i like getting it 1st because it allows upgradeing archangels staff much faster.



Quick Hint When in spawn or on the lane and you have a lot of mana keep casting lay waste to charge up your tear of the goddes/archangel staff(when they are off cooldown, of course).

Farming

I strongly suggest using lay waste and defile to get every last bit of gold. While farming remember that the turret will do some damage itself and if you manage to get to the enemy turret hit and running with lay waste can deal a lot of damage.
