AD / Off Tank Gnar
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Who is Gnar?
Gnar is a cute little poke heavy champion. He focuses on poking down enemy champion early game and then later turns into this huge monster with a great all in burst.
Gnar is an AD champion which focuses on building early damage and late game survive-ability.
Remember that Gnar is very squishy in his "Mini Gnar" Form but does alot of sustain damage, While in "Mega Gnar" He is a front line tank who focuses on killing the two main carrys. (the enemy AP and AD carrys.)
Mega Gnar: This form gives Gnar more Health, Armor , Magic Resist, and base Attack Damage.
(You can also use your Ultimate ability in this form.)
Mini Gnar: This form gives Gnar Attack speed, Movement speed, and Attack range.
(Your ultimate ability does not work in this form.)
What to do in Lane.
During lane faze Gnar succedes at poking down a enemy champion (Teemo) and then finnish them off with two suprise stuns and a ignite kill.
Never forgot that CS (Creep Score) is the key to winning your lane. Try to have about 60-70 cs by 10 minutes. and keep it up. Although dont risk getting poked for a minion kill.
This is somewhat easy on Gnar since his abilities costs nothing. He can also do some fancy combos such as last hiting a minion with your and hitting the enemy champion behind the minion. This gives Gnar a cs advantage and free poke Damage.
Also dont be afraid to dive the enemy turret while your enemy is low. Just remember to be in "Mega Gnar" Form when diving since this form gives him more tanky-ness.

How to win the game (TEAM-FIGHTS)
In solo Queue
You are the ingage in teamfights, since your passive "Mega Gnar" makes you a tank. Try to peel for the friendly AD carry since they do alot of dmg while they are not being touched.
Also you can ingage from the enemy backdoor and stun the whole enemy team with your or . If you do this try to prioritise the enemy AD carry or enemy AP carry.
If you dont have your "Mega Gnar" Form and your stuck in "Mini Gnar" Form you should play like an AD carry and stay behind the tankies champion in your team. and hit your Q's to poke everyone down until you hit 100 Rage and Jump on the Enemy.
In Ranked Teams
Try to Have another tank in your team since Gnar is an off tank not a full tank, you can still be easily killed if focused by 2-3+ enemies.
You and your friends should add another Off tank in yuor team as a Jungle such: as Jarvan IV, Aatrox, Lee sin and many more.
If your team rather wants a full damage Jungler there are also some tanky supports to be picked such as: Leona, Alistar or Braum.
Gnar has loads of different combos which can suprise and kill your oponents in ways which are hard to respond to. For example if you have 100 rage and you are in "Mini Gnar" form You could press your And this will make you still bounce of something and turn into "Mega Gnar".
A great combo which i use atleast twice in every game is that I at 100 rage in to the Dragon or Baron pit and then the enemy team in to the walls, and just before the stun wears off I for another stun. While you are Crowd Controling the enemy team this gives your team a chance to still the Dragon or baron and Ace the enemy team and win.
+ + +
Another Nice combo which I like to is a combo i call poke n dodge. This combo is more seen during the laning faze. What I like to do here is to then
and then finnish of with an Auto Attack to proc the passive from . This Is a great way to do huge damage to your enemy laner and dodge their skill shot.
My friend BlobHead usaly streams us playing League of Legends both of us are going to play Gnar alot. Check it out and leave a follow and type something in stream for us to read and answer.
