Threat Champion Notes
1
Akali Squishy assassin.She will probably just run away from you early.
1
Amumu Just as tanky as you but since you bought a Black Cleaver,he will be easy to defeat.
1
Bard Squishy at all stages of the game,even with items.
1
Braum Really tanky though nothing to fear.
1
Cho'Gath Really tanky but he has no damage.
1
Corki Squishy and is not even capable of kiting.

1
Gangplank You can just fully burst him down and he cannot do anything about it.
1
Gragas Tanky,but not tanky enough to beat you.
1
Ivern Tanky but deals no damage.Not an issue.
1
Janna A squishy support.Delicious.
1
Karthus Worthless without his ultimate.Also very immobile.

1
Kha'Zix Another assasin.Does nothing to you but you sure chunk him down fast.
1

1
Lulu Squishy support.Destroy her,soldier!
1
Lux Very squishy mage with no escapes.Easy as pie.

Introduction

Hello!I am an Garen main(level 7) who plays on EUNE.I am here to help all of you out there who struggle on how to play Garen!


Guide Top

Runes

Classic rune set for a tank.You can take cdr glyphs instead of mr but i prefer mr.


Guide Top

Masteries

Thunderlord's is the only viable choice on Garen atm.As for masteries,everything tanky in there.


Guide Top

Items

Rush Cleaver when up against a tank.Then just armor/mr items.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Start Q for cs-ing but max E for the damage and Q second because you need the cdr on it.Ulti whenever you can.


Guide Top

Spells

Flash-Teleport are by far the best sums on Garen.Flash to escape and TP to gank other lanes/split.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Play Gareb safe in ranked as opponents know what a Garen can do.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

+Really tanky
+Great lane sustain with passive
+Sticky and has loads of ms
+High damage
-Kiteable
-Gets shutted down by %max hp damage


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

Farm with your Q at level 1.Once you hit level 2 your wave clear is awesome so take the advantage.


Guide Top

Team Work

Cooperate at all times with your team.You do not wanna be left alone.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

Garen has an incredibly unique kit.He has sustain,a silence+ms,a damage reduction,an aoe and an execute.What more could you ask for?


Guide Top

Farming

As I stated before,farm with your E as much as possible.I cannot count how many times I had the most farm in the whole game as Garen.


Guide Top

Summary

I hope this guide helped you out.Unfortunately I could not edit the champ matchups as i did not get every champ in there.Peace!
