Yes. It's Garen. He's in your face spinning. Go ahead and try to kill him, his team is right behind him.

I'm aware the masteries are not set to tank build. This is intentional. Garen has enough survivability to not change his masteries. Just wait in the bush and hope your enemies go near the bush. If they are smart enough not to, just level up Courage, and last hit minions with your Q running out of the bush. 25 Armor/MR late game will be more helpful then you think.

No, you are not truly unkillable, because your stupidity of map unawareness will still kill you.

Rushing Banshee's Veil will make you the most annoying piece of **** in the world. This is why you want it. Your job is to not die and piss off the enemy team. Either strike fear in them, or make them recklessly attack you.

However, the problem with this build is you won't actually be able to do any damage until you get sunfire. Either get fed or drag out the game until then. After that, you should be about fine.

You will have to change the order of things based off how the game is going. If Yi/Trynd/MF/etc. become a problem. Get Thornmail. If Warwick is becoming a problem with madreds, stop building your second sunfire and start on force of nature. Your build is not a build, it is designed to counter the enemy team. Stop them in their tracks because your ****ing Garen.

If you are laning against 2 magic dealers, grab negatron cloak or finish merc treds first instead of catalyst. If its two melee dealers, grab a Chain Shirt or whatever. This is to stop them from dealing damage.

Another thing. You are a tank. Your job is to be scary in front of the other team to allow your team to do their job. If you die, congratulations, you just saved 3 of your teammates from dying. Just don't travel alone. And if you know a team fight is inevitable. Please for the love of god buy that damn potion of fortitude. It is going to save you more right now to push that tower than to finish your second sunfire that much sooner.
