Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
I was waiting for this champion to come out like for salvation. At last a pure physical, single oriented champion with nice cooldown based skills. I had enaugh of hybrid chars that were ****py on hybrid builds they wanted to make for them, and not that good when focusing either on AD or AP.
Garen was something i wanted to see for a long time. And also a release from killstealing my killz :)
I like playing physical dps melee champs, that requires some skill to kill som1 not just pushing 1-2-3-you-are-dead buttons. I like when i have the versality of tank/dps/support. Garren does a great job in tank and dps role, and medicore support role but sill.
The weak point is his CC capabilities. His one and only CC skill is a silencing atack. But before he gets to the champ he can be facerolled without that silence, specialy by casters.
I will focus on DPS build on Garen since its the only way i play him. I find his skills too much offensive to waste his potential for Tanking.
