Summoner spells/runes: EXHAUST AND HEAL. EXHAUST FO SHO. WHY??? BEACUSE HE HAS NO NATURAL CC. THIS WILL BE YOUR ONLY CC. GET IT. NO EXCEPTIONS.

and why heal? Well, i use heal because mainly it's op and it pisses people off. but you can pick other spells like

Ghost: Good to chase and run away (not that you'll need to) But just in case.

Flash: It's also a good alternate.

Ignite: Meh, pretty good if you want that extra damage early game. but it got pretty nerfed.

Teleport: GO ahead. it's nice.

Clarivoyance: i don't recommend it but if you want it then grab it.

Fortify: I LIKE THIS SPELL. but i don't really need it.

So stay away from any other kinds of SS's

Runes: Basic tank runes. They are very good for tanking.

Masteries: Basic tank masteries. Use em. They are gold.
*Plus that extra crit in the deadliness will help your judgement.

Enough of that. Get to the game.



Now. Garen is an ULTIMATE TANK, if he's played right. (Well garen is sort of faceroll.) BUT LET'S GET STARTED.
EARLY GAME

Start off with a ruby crystal. ? Why a ruby crystal? Because 1: You don't need potions on garen. and 2: Lots o health in the beginning. all you do is level up judgement first and alternate between getting courage and decisive strike AFTER you get judgement up all the way. Of course you have to get your ult when you can. All you do early game is 1: RUN UP WITH Q AND SILENCE. 2: SPIN/Courage at the same time. (YES IT WORKS.) 3: Ulti.

Garen is on a killing spree! (HEY LOOKIT THAT.)

then go get your heart of gold. finish randuins if you have enough of course.

then mid game starts.

MID GAME


Go and get your boot, then your sunfire. You'll be so flaming.

After your sunfire and boots then work to a FON, depending on what the team looks like, you can change your items.
but these should do the job.


LATE GAME

Routine should be Randuin's ---> decisive anyone you see ----> judgement/courage ----> clean up with ulti.

GAREN IS GODLIKE!!



Nao, do your regular routine and get a frozen mallet and guardians! Frozen mallet will not only A. slow them because garen has no natural cc. but it will do damage, which is always nice, same with health. and guardians is a MUST HAVE. because you are a bamf, and if you had guardians. then when you died youd have DOUBLE BAMF!!!! DOUBBBBLLLLEEE BAMMMMFFFF!!!

good.

You should pretty much dominate while everyone will be QQing about how op you are.
