Welcome Summoners.

This guide will help you understand garen more and the effective way to play Garen. I've tried number of builds on garen and from my experience I realized the best way to build is Dps/Tanky on him.

Why?

Garen AD scale at start game is very good, and can be the best AD between 1-6 if you know how
to spin like a champ.

End game role?

Garen's AD drops massively end game, therefore you need tanky items to setup in team fights like a boss. (SILENCE THEM CASTERS)

Summoner Spells

EXHAUST is a must!! it provides many benefits for Garen, and it could save lives in team fights. The main usage for exhaust is to counter the carries. Meaning by carries people who have the most kills in the game, therefore silence and exhaust together on a target makes it much eaiser for your team to kill carries.

GHOST, I prefer having ghost on Garen to chase targets down and out-run people in team-fights. Q with Ghost combination is just awesome.

FLASH...You could play with this summoner spell thats if you teammates have plenty of exhaust and could be used like ghost to chase people and run away.

IGNITE...I dont like ignite on garen but it can be a nice set-up...why? because garen isnt ment to get all the kills in team fights...his end game role is tank.

Tips

Laning phase: Garen is BOTTOM lane and BOTTOM lane only!! there are many combos that could work for garen in lane. I prefer a stunner someone like Alistar or Taric..even ryze could work. All it takes is the right stun or bind and with your Q-E combo the target should be dead or flashed out.


If your lane has a hard harras don't jump in to them like superman, you need to be patient...creep score with your Q and E until your jungler comes by for ganks.

DONT STAY IN BUSH ALL THE TIME! you will waste creep scoring, use the bush in your advantage to lose enemies sight or if you are confident they will step in your trap.

Summary

Garen's role is DPS at start meaning dont hesitate to hit your points with your Q-E it will do massive damage at start game.

Tanking in end game the most vital role for garen is counter the carries, if you can finish the build mentioned up top you should setup in the faces of carries and silence-Exhaust and combo with your Q-E-R.

Garen's Ulti...don't steal kills from your allies with your R...unless the target is a tank or it became too hard to kill the carry.
