Introduction

You must know this : Garen is op . Most of the players don't know this but if you master garen you don't have counter . YOu can do tower dives only with a giants belt on you and your W . Most people don't play garen becouse he is cheap and they don't even know his skills , use the element of surprize . And don't go full ad ... it's not a wise choice , garen does great dmg with only sunfire , thornmail and warmong (vs ap you get maw and then warmong and you will be good enough) .

Summary

I started playing Garen after i saw that he counters many champions , after the first games with him i said that i will never play him again but then i became bored of my other champions and after i mastered mundo i wanted to master another champ so i picked garen . After seeing how easy he can do anything i started to like this champ . I recommend every player to try and understand that even the cheapest champions in lol can be strong and i mean very strong ....

Farming

Farming is the most important thing if you want to win with garen . If you can't farm being agressive then stay under turret and farm . Remember you are not adc , mage or ad champ you are an stong tank that can get lots of kills but that is mid-late game , early game just Farm .

Team Work

If you owned you lane you can go help mid after you destroyed the first turret , your teleport will help you get back top if needed . Garen is very good at ganking and killing mid laners becouse most of them do not have too much hp or armor but be careful not to be killed .
Usually in team fights you will charge first , but try to take them from behind becouse your burst can kill theyr adc so your team has an advantage.
