Overview

Once you get the first 6 items, Doran's Shield, Boots of Swiftness, Warmog's Armor, Randuin's Omen, Force of Nature, and Frozen Mallet, you can choose whether or not to get rid of Doran's Shield for Shurelya's Reverie. I would personally because it is more Health, Health Regen., and gives your allies a little boost every 60 seconds. And yes I know the Mana Regen. stat is useless but the rest definately outway having the one useless stat. However, if you don't care for that one last little bit of Health Regen. from the Doran's Shield, you can choose to get the Sunfire Cape, Thornmail, or Guardian Angel depending on how you play and who you are facing.


When choosing skills, generally stick with:



Heal - so you get health back even faster still and so that you can go for early kills with an ally champion.

Ignite - so you can get a lot of early kills as well as help you out at least a little bit late game.

Revive - not my first choice for skills for Garen, but if you like to stay alive or like to get more early kills.


All other skills generally don't compliment Garen with this setup so try not to steer off with them unless you would like to use smite and jungle early which i would definitely not recommend for this setup. Especially stay away from Clarity! At all times! Has absolutely nothing to do with Garen! Haha!



In my opinion, this is one of the best setups for Garen and i always play with this now ever since i figured it out. It works great and i hope that Garen users will try this and like it as much as i do. This setup allows Garen to be a Semi-Tank as well as still have all the factors that makes him easy to play and one of the strongest and best champions in LOL. Thanks for reading and please post feedback on how you like the setup or not so I know if I should change it around in some way, shape, or form for other avid Garen players!
