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.
This is a Garen build that i enjoy using. i lean on being a tank more than dps. items are not set in stone and you should build according to what you face. any constructive comments welcome.
i build up courage first to help tank and neglect DS till later in the match.
This build definitely made for initiating team fights. just use judgment then courage and distract them, and try to save silence to stop any channeled or cast spells.
