Introduction

hey guys this is my new Garen guide. It's one of my highest success rate builds and I would like you all to try it. I made this build especially for people that wants to get out of elo hell the easiest and I know this sounds stupid but if there is a tank that can do this its Garen. He is a great pusher and with his passive can stay in his lane forever. Ganking him is impossible because you just activate your q and you are safe. I hope you guys read my whole build so you can understand how strong Garen can be. I will be posting some of my games I played with him in a few days. Anyway enjoy reading the build and go DEMACIA.

The Runes I use on Garen is mostly defensive because of his Courage(20% increased Magic resist and Armor). Now I use flat ad Marks for early game damage on his q but armor pen can be easily substituted for this. The Quints can also be substituted for armor pen or ad but having that 70 armor level one just make it so much easier to lane vs any champ like a Darius or a Jayce that usually has a lot of damage on you.

I take Summoner's Wrath for both Ghost and Ignite increase of damage and speed. I'm not a great fan of Deadliness but the 10% extra damage Lethality grants you is awesome. Its like when a dragon and horse have sex and outcomes a bloody awesome mythical creatures that just ****s everybody up in the league. Weapon Expertise very important for some armour pen. Then also Executioner the best mastery on Garen because when a he uses thta ulti of him on the other teams best tank ever you just ask,' u mad enemy with low health?' and the boom!!!! slash you **** them up.

Items

Now comes the fun part. Who in their right mind starts with a Doran's Shield right? but the truth is I haven't found a item more suiting for him yet as a starting item. Sure u can start with boots and pots but 10 armor 120 health and 8 per 5 regen is all better for early game. Your q makes you fast enough anyway. The first time you go back to your base you must try to be able to buy basic boots and hexdrinker or phage.After that rushing a Sunfire Cape or Warmog's Armor is very important. When enemy team has a lot of Magic damage rushing a warmogs or force of nature is a better idea than going for the Sunfire Cape but you have to get the cape late game anyway. The reason I like rushing an early Sunfire Cape is of the nice damage it puts out on top of Judgement Garen's E.

Summoner Spells

Summoner spell really nothing funny. I take Ghost and Ignite on Garen so I can charge in a group fight kill the carry quick and if needed I charge out.

Farming

Farming is really easy with Garen because u don't have to last hit Judgement does it for you. pre - level 6 maybe not the best idea to push too hard but after that no gank should be even closely be a threat.

Summary

I don't know if any of you ever played vs me when I was Garen but you would know if u had. Garen is immortal late game and if u have a Garen player in your team that died more than 6 times this guy is a noob. These days I play Garen ranked a lot because I discovered how easily he can just tank turrets very early game and you can really win games on your own. Now I am a team player but we all know how easy it is to get stuck in elo hell and when that happens Garen can help you out so easy.
