Items

I start off with boots and three pots. Later get Doran's Blade for easier early game domination. Later...

Brutalizer- Has good synergy with Garen, giving him cooldown reduction, armor pen, and more damage. Then later build this item into a Youmuu's Ghostblade

Thornmail- Get Thornmail mid game if the majority of enemy champions are AD. This will allow you to harrass while still being able to survive.

Force of Nature- Get Force of Nature mid game if the majority of enemy champions are AP. This will again, allow you to harrass while still being able to survive burst.

Frozen Mallet- It allows to to do a bit more damage and have more survivability. The slow allows you to chase enemy champions.

Warmog,s- It gives you heath late game and heath re-gen making it easier to stay in team fights.

Skill Sequence

You get your Q first so you can get to lane and catch up to the enemy champion faster. It is also a good defensive move.

You max E first because it is your main damage move.


you get W forth because it will block some damage while running with your Q. Last hitting with garen is very important because it increases your armor and magic resist.


you get your ult at 6 11 16 your ult dose damage based on the amount of health the enemy is missing.


Guide Top

Skill Order

Use Decisive Strike(Q), Courage(W), Judgement(E), Ignite(if necessary), then Demacian Justice(R). This allows for better initiation, doing damage, and staying alive.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

You get Ignite because it will help finish your opponents. The reduce health regeneration on the enemy also helps you stop people from regaining to much health, such as Dr. Mundo

You get Flash because it will give you a quick get away and helps you in chases.

*You can also use Ghost instead of flash because ghost will serve the same purpose
and or
Exhaust instead of ignite because it will help you stick to a target and reduce their damage. It can also help you escape.
