Introduction

I've always liked Garen as he was one of my first champions, i find him very fun to play, however he is more of a solo-queue champion. Also its my first guide, so give dont be mad :)

Masteries

I have chosen these masteries as it works for me. I've skipped the life steal ones due to Judgement not using lifesteal.

Items

Early Game

Depending on what lane your on will determine what you start with. For example if laning with someone i chooseas my first item. However if i'm solo-laning x3 is normally picked.

If farming is going well (and kills are too) ill build into as the damage and crits from judgement are great, especially for pushing lane too.


Mid Game

If your very fed, save the tankiness till later, go for surrender by building items such asfor all good stats, not so much the attack-speed active. for penetration.

However if your not just build partly tanky items however still keep going for crit and damage, so possible choices instead are,
Late Game

Try and make sure there is tankyness along side items like: For good late game damage and clearing.

Fed Build/Carry:



Off-Tank



Not so good on Garen

Aside from obvious items with AP and general un-used items try not to touch these even tho they might look good.

Lifesteal is not good idea on Garen, due to using judgement a lot of the time, same goes with attack speed.
