Introduction

DEMACIAAAAAA!!

Ever since i picked up Garen, i have been loving it every damn game.
All of you know that Garen is a good tank, but can also dish out insane damage.
And since i play him as a tank, i will try my best to show it to you guys too.

Summoner Spells

I picked Ignite to have the edge to harass enemy champs in early game and force them to leave lane often to get the advantage over them. Though i only pop the ignite if i'm relatively sure, if i can kill him/her.

And Flash explains itself pretty much.

Runes

Why i picked up these runes?

I picked flat Armor and flat Magic Resist(if you don't want flat ones, you can get per/lvl ones, this is just my choice) runes only to have enough survivability until i get my Chain Vest and Negatron Cloak.

Also picked up Armor Penetration runes and quints because, well, it's ArP.

Items

So, i start out with boots and 3x HP pots. I try to stay out in lane until i have enough gold to buy The Brutalizer and possibly some more HP pots and a Ward or two. From that point on, you will start dishing out some amazing damage, and by that time you should have a kill or two. I get Avarice Blade next to get some extra gold, and not finishing Youmuu's Ghostblade until i get myself Sunfire Cape and Force of Nature. After i get SC and FoN, if you feel you can get gold fast enough, you can finish Youmuu. Atma's Impaler can also be switched out to get Frozen Mallet, but i myself prefer Atma. And after Atma, you just need Guardian Angel to be the deadly spinning man screaming DEMACIAAAA!

Skill Sequence

I start off with Q, because it has much more potential to get FB in very early game than E. and that's it for why i picked Q first.

I initiate with Q, run in to the most wanted enemy champ and silence him/her, then will start spinning and will pop W, to get less damage, since you might get focused. If i see someone low enough, who isn't focused, i pop my ult on him/her and if he/she didn't die, i follow up with Q.

Summary

So this is it for my guide for Garen.

These are the 4 games i did with Garen today. Also, note that they are normal games, but that's because i'm only lvl 27 summoner.


Anyhow, i hope you like it and give it a try.
