HOLY ****! The health regen!

You may have just had an orgy cause of the health regen in this build. I love it. I think it really enhances Garen's capability on laning, and alot more. The items I use also give Garen a ****load of health, armor, and magic resistence. This makes him super tanky. Along with Garen's passive, if you have an allied Heim in your lane, then you sir, may never have to recall to regen health AGAIN. Maybe to buy items, but that may be all. Don't get too confident, though. Just because I say this, doesn't make it impossible for you to die.

Tips and Tricks

Use Decisive Strike before using Judgement for extra movement speed. Don't hit them with the Decisive Strike, though. This is useful to make use of the Sunfire Cape.

If there is a Heimerdinger on your team, try to lane with him. IF theres no other range type, well, tough luck. Anyways, Heim's passive makes regening HP faster to allied champions nearby, and Garen's makes Garen regen HP faster. The extra HP Regen items make your HP Regen mad crazy.

Use Demacian Justice when people have about 1/5 of their health left. Don't use this on enemies with Guardian Angel, though. Judgement them a few times, and if you think you can deal enough damage in time, kill him.

Use Courage while running away with low HP. Also use Decisive Strike for additional Movement Speed to get away faster.

Teleport can be handy to get back and forth between places, or backdoor much faster. I usually find that by the time I get to a 200 HP turret, theres around 3 enemy champions there, making it nearly impossible.

Garen is Tanky. But if you have another tank, don't bother, unless it an Alistar. Most Alistars don't use tank builds.

Revamped?

Mhm. Revamped. Got some help on runes with a good friend of mine. Told me not to post lessers or normals. Just greaters. People should know that if you can't use the greater version, use whatever you can. I also re-thought the masteries AND summoner spells. I now find it alot more convenient if Garen can backdoor in 3v3, and 5v5. Garen IS a 5v5 champion. But I've achieved very good kills with him in 3v3.

Garen

I wanted to focus a bit on increasing Garen's speed, making him able to regen health a bit faster, and his Judgement skill. This is a build as the result of that. If I were to rate this build, 1 from 10, I'd rate it 7. After all, I just starter, this is my first build, and all of that. It focuses alot on armor, actually. If anything, this makes him more of a tank. I was going for a build to enhance Judgement, as I said before. This seems like a clever combination to me.

What about the money?

Yes, there is a large amount of money needed. You most likely won't finish the build. But, make sure to sell your Doran's shield when you need to get that sixth slot. Theres not much more I can say about the economic surronding of this build.

But I was doing bad, what happened?

I'm not sure. Either this build doesn't work well for your play style, or, your teammates fed. LoL has a whole lot of feeders in it, and it annoys me. Most games, I get stuck with the worst combination of a feeder. If you're unsure, feeding is basically walking straight into your death. For instance, you attack a champion near a turret, or, you see 2 enemies, and you go to attack one. A way to avoid turret feeding is to stay clear of Rammus when hes hugging the turret. If you're a melee, don't even attack it while hes there. Rammus has an ability that makes a target mob attack him.
