In light of the new 1.0.0.107 patch I've changed my build on Garen. This build now is to help maximize Garen's attack stat now that he can't stack sunfires. He can't have the best of both worlds anymore, but he can fit into his fighter roll a lot better. This means you have to play a lot more carefully with Garen. Yes you have 3k HP, but late in the game almost everyone is doing 2k or more damage. So watch yourself.

RUNES
I choose to go with flat damage runes for this Garen build now. Since his judgment only scales off of bonus attack, you need to gather all the bonus attack you can for it to get good damage. So flat damage marks and flat damage quints are your best bet.

For seals, I choose to go with dodge. Why? Because Garen needs to be able to avoid a few incoming attacks if he wants to survive with this new build. You're not a tank anymore. You're going to have to find a way to minimize the amount of damage an enemy does to do you while maximizing the amount of damage you do to them.

For my glyphs I use cool down reduction. Garen's only weakness is his cool downs. He doesnt use mana. He doesn't use health. So all you need to worry about is your CD.

ITEM BUILD
This is still a work in progress for me. At the moment. I'm settling on this build. The definite items are the Blood Razors (damage and armor, the Frozen Mallet (slow, damage, and health), and the Sunfire Cape (DPS and damage), you can't stack them anymore with Garen, but you can still use them.

You have the AS with boots, Razors, Sunfire, and Yomuu's. You won't be attack as fast as Master Yi or TF, but you'll hit hard and fast like you should.
