Introduction

(This is my first guide/build ever, so it might not be so great.) Hi there! Garen is a champion that everyone thinks is uh, how you say "OP". Well He is if you play and build him right. Isn't that what you came here for? Well in this guide I'll teach you how I play Garen. I personally play Garen as an AD champion. Why you might ask? Because he dishes out so much damage early game.

"WHY U NO BUILD TANK Garen????" Good question, the answer to that is he he is already a tank no matter what. His W Courage is so defensive! Building Warmog's Armor and Atma's Impaler early on is a must have, Why? Only because it gives hive a ton of health, AD, armor and crit!

This guide will help you MASTER! Yes I said MASTER! Garen.

Runes

Greater Mark of Desolationx9 - Why not get it? Aren't you playing AD Garen?

x9 - I use dodge seals because of the defensive tree, Nimbleness. You could dodge a crit from Tryndamere and end geting away form him living.

x9 - "WHY COOLDOWN REDUCTION? WHY NO MANA REGEN????" Because first of all. Uh, HE HAS NO MANA! Second, He benefits a lot from cooldown reduction. Shorter the skills are, the better!

Greater Quintessence of Desolationx3 - Same reason, YOU'RE AN AD Garen!

Masteries

Why I go 21-9-0? 21 points in offense, what most AD champion does, 9 in defense because of Nimbleness which gives you extra speed once you dodge an attack, and 0 in Utility because you need that Nimbleness !
