Phreak's Garen PeWPeW

Garen is a physical, melee DPS champion who excels at dishing out punishment in spades. He brings a lot of fun mechanics to various fights: Silence, a damage-reducing shield, and an execute-style ability to help secure yourself some kills. The build used in this spotlight focuses on his area of effect spell, Judgment

Because Garen has no AP ratios, no mana, and a lot of bonus health regeneration as a passive, it’s easy to build Garen towards physical damage, critical strike, and armor penetration. Because of this I always try to rush towards the new item, Youmu’s Ghostblade before working towards Last Whisper and Infinity Edge. Additionally, he has really strong synergy with the other new item, Randuin’s Omen because he naturally gains a lot of armor and magic resist.

Garen’s playstyle is pretty forgiving. You can initiate first with Decisive Strike, Courage, and Judgment; follow up after a tank; or even enter a battle late to score a kill with Demacian Justice.

My skill order is:

Judgment
