Garen, The Might of Demacia

Throughout Valoran, the resolve of Demacia's military is alternately celebrated or despised, but always respected. Their ''zero tolerance'' moral code is strictly upheld by civilians and soldiers alike. In combat, this means Demacian troops may not make excuses, flee, or surrender under any circumstance. These principles are espoused to their forces by unrivaled demagogues who lead by example. Garen, the valiant warrior who bears the title ''the Might of Demacia'', is the paradigm to which these leaders are compared. Thousands of great heroes have risen and fallen on the bloody battlefields between Demacia and its preeminent rival, Noxus. It was beneath their mighty banners of war that Garen first met steel with Katarina, the Sinister Blade. The infantrymen who beheld this event (and survived) commented that it seemed as though the two were locked in a mortal waltz against a symphony of clashing blades.

Garen, the pride of the Demacian military and leader of the Dauntless Vanguard, returned from this battle breathless for the first time in his career, though some speculate that this was due to reasons other than exhaustion. The plausibility of these rumors was bolstered when, in every instance thereafter, Garen seized the opportunity to encounter the Sinister Blade again. A paragon of Demacian ethic, Garen never entertained such allegations, for he knew others couldn't understand. Even simply the pursuit of a worthy opponent on the battlefield is, to a true warrior, the reason to rise each morning. The promise of one, particularly so beautifully and diametrically opposed, is the validation of his existence.

''The most effective way to kill an opponent is to slice through the man next to him.''
-- Garen, on front line strategy

Introduction

Garen. One of the most underestimated champions in League of Legend. True, I see people playing him a lot, but they don't know his full potential as a late game carry. Garen is the only champion that can carry a team without buying AD items, which is amazing since you can carry the team simply by buying most tanky items. Something not many champions can do. In this guild i'll teach you how to use Garen to his full potential as a late game carry and impossible to kill tank.

Runes

Greater Mark of Strength : Simply cause you want more attack to go with the natural tankieness of Garen

Greater Seal of Resilience : For more armour that will help with your sustenance in lane.

Greater Glyph of Shielding : For that extra magic resist that will help you survive in team fights.

Greater Quintessence of Furor : For all the crit that you will be doing.
