INtroduction.

This is an exclusive garen guide the items are fully functional and best work on garen
his playstyle his spin
his q and his ultimate
will be immense with this item build
i have a 98% chance to win with garen using this build
i have hardly lost with it,
so please try it out its cheap its easy and its imba
what more can you ask right HAha
_______________________________________

Garen is a tanky dps
hes not full tank since hes CD dependent
and doesnt have a stun or a slow
his W is short and his silence is IMBA

THat is why i am grouping GAren into the tanky DPs category AKA The Offtanks
hes got great damage plus great survivable

with this build the OPponent cant just simply ignore you
they will get frustrated how your a tank
and an IMBA DPS

They will QQ about your ULT
They WIll QQ about your silence
And they WIll QQ about your SPin
THEY WILL SAY GAREN IS OP


Guide Top

Runes

Runes i use
are armor penetration MArks
Health per lvl seal
Flat cdr glyphs
And last but not least
The glyphs are Flat hp

i have about 800 health using these runes early game with the doran shield ofc


Guide Top

Playstyle.

Garens playstyle is like hit and run

E----
against mellee i like to mess aroudn with them
since the spin have a slight larger range then a mellee attack
i like to keep that distance so ill spin in and kite them around making them follow me
doing full damage
and taking no damage

Q


his q is amazing it silence so u go in there and youll be feeling like a bully
u hit and they are silenced while taking that immense damage
and u just walk away safely not all the time most .
also if u want u can q then e and w and r should kill them LoL

W
this is okay its only 3 seconds tho
but i guess ill use it anyways
its pretty good at getting away with your q w combo
not sure about tanking with it cause the effect is rather short.

R
this boy right here at lvl 16
when they are at half health u can pretty much kill them
its a beast indeed. THE ULTIMATE OF ULTMATES






Laning phase,
is try not to be aggrasive when your less then half health
if your low just sit back play safe and regen quickly due to passive and doran shield
its imba. believe me.


Guide Top

PROS AND CONS

PROS---

Good harrassing .
pro laning due to High regen passive.
Great killer.
Great offtank.
feared by everyone.
Ult is an insta kill .
THey at half health BAM dead .
Great survivable.
Not much to worry about when playing garen.
FAST!!



CONS



Mellee but speed makes up for it
Need good timing
annd thats about it really hard to think of a con for him
since with this build all the cons will be fixed .


Guide Top

Masteries

YOur kinda wondering why i chose the mage tree
well because i like the health regen
i like the speed boost
and the cdr


for the ad tree
i picked magic penetration is his ult is magic damage
and yeah pretty imba


reason why i dont go into tanking tree
is because garen is not a tank hes a half tank
a tanky mutha dpser
and i find tanking tree kinda usless
eccept if u rely on mana


Guide Top

Items

[*] Doran's shield [*]
Is your starting item, the armor and health regen is exccelent for garen and dont foget the 100hp
mmmm delicous starting gear,


Annyways



EArly should look like this

[*] Doran's Shield[*] [*] Boot's of Speed [*] The Brutalizer[*]
Mid game should be

[*] Boots of Swiftness [*] [*] Sunfire Cape [*] Negatron Cloak[*]
Late game is

[*] Atma's Impaler[*] [*] Youmuu's Ghostblade[*][*] Force Of Nature [*]




By late game youll have around 3000health
SO

U can either choose [*] Frozen Mallet[*] if u feel like you want more health and some more damage
Or u can pick [*] Last WHisper [*] if the enemy team is tanky on armor and u just wanna damage this **** out of them .


Guide Top

Summoner SPells

I go with FLash and exhaust
Reason is Flash gets me out of sticky situation
i dont need Ghost because i already have enough speed
I dont have a BLink
so i choose Flash

Exhaust
i use it because it lets my enemy stay in range of my SPin
Makes them weaker
And it slows them
So An instant death is assure once i use my exhaust most of the time;)


Guide Top

FArming

Garen is easy to last hit with due to his attack animation
in early game he wont be able to clear minions with his spin
so avoid spinning on minions,
u can last hit with his Q but be cautious while doing it u wont have a silence for another 10 sec

MId game u should be able to farm alot with SPin+SUnfire CApe combo.

LAte game = Np U WILL BE FED WITH THIS BUILD


Guide Top

TEamWORK

as garen,
he needs to bring the opposing team down
whether they choose to ignore him
They will pay attention to Garen
u will be a devasting FOe

when they enemy is over extending go in quick with your burst of speed Q
they will not expect it once u strike the battle is initiated
then kite with spin so u wont take alot of damage
after fine one thats low or Half HP and finish him off quickly with R

then it will be a 4v5

Garen will be able to make it a 4v5 easily
if he catches one of u overextending or off guard
he can Q E W and R u and 1 extra swing will KILL u and make it a 4v5


Guide Top

Summary

All in all this is a great garen build
High defination explaintions

The core item are
Atma's Impaler
Boots of Swiftness
Sunfire Cape
And yuumo's Ghostblade


Side core items

Force of nature
since it has great synergy with garens passive
and the resist is pretty neat


Last item can be
Frozen Mallet
OR Last WHisper


with frozen mallet your atma will accumalte about 80 plus attack damage Fyi
