Introduction

This build is about dealing damage while being able to survive in a brutal team fight or even 1v1. Garen will be the character to initiate with severe damage but in the end, still walk away with a decent amount of health.


Guide Top

Runes

It is a no brainer that Garen needs AP in order to dish out a lot of damage through his skills (except ulti.) His dodge runes are a basic for any melee tank in the game, just in case some major melee dps is attacking Garen. CD runes will help significantly in harassing in the game.

Masteries

The masteries are based on defense which def. help out in the survivability of any teamfights in the game. For the attacking tree line, I put a point in archaic knowledge in order for Garen's ulti to really dish out a lot of damage. Plus, it helps out sunfire cape which will deal more damage to surrounding enemies.


Guide Top

Items

The items are build in a sequence of balance where he will have survivability and damage equally throughout the game. The first items I get are boots of speed and 2 health potions. The speed will def. help in Garen's "E" skill. Then Sunfire Cape is really important since it deals damage and at the same time: armor and health. Personally, I like Black Cleaver since it reduces the armor of enemies even further which will help in 1v1. Force of Nature is a great item for many reasons (magic resist, speed, and health regen.) Youmuu's Ghostblade is such a great item for its passive and its active is great for escaping or chasing or 1v1.

Skill Sequence

I like to max out Garen's "Spin" as quickly as possible since it will dish out the most damage from him. After that, it's just a balance between silencing and survivability.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Exhaust is a must just in case you don't think the ulti. will finish off the enemy...put on exhasut (reduce magic resist) and then cast ulti. If that doesn't work (which will most likely leave the enemy about 1% left of health) put on ignite to finish off the job.

Summary

That's basically it. Right here is a tanking / damage dealing Garen that will be really helpful in teamfights but still able to 1v1.
