Threat Champion Notes

Lee Sin All of champions that can engage realy well with their combo will get decimated by you becouse if you silence them mid combo for example lee sin he wont be able to kick you and ward jump away witch means his death in most cases.
Guide Top

Idea behind this.

Since change to his passive garen was seen on top quite often as tank and now with smite top meta and new black cleaver he is increatibely strong. He doesn´t bring any hard CC for his team but 2.5 second silence can be game changing.


Guide Top

Laning phase

Your laning phase can be dificult but as you do your first buy and get cinderhulk you should be able to duel every meele champion even duelists (zed,irelia,riven.fiora) and most of the bruisers. You shine in mid to late game becouse of your lvl 16 spike with warmogs, spirite visage and your third lvl passive. If you let your passive going for 5 secconds it regenerates you to full HP and you should be able to try to engage onother fight. Thanks to your 30% CDR your cooldowns are increatibely low and your engage is devastating if you don´t get kited, becouse your silence can disable any form of counterengage or disengage.


Guide Top

Team fights

Garen isn´t the best engager so he is better with some secondary off tank or another supertank with Righteous glory or some movement boosting abilities (karma,sivir,talisman of ascension)


Guide Top

Late game

Remember that you are supertank but in lategame you´ll start having some issues with restist becouse your build will get you only 200 resists and their carries will burn thru it so you can sell your warmogs to trade it for restist. If they have mixed DMG you should get ZzRot portal to help your sidelanes push. If they have one side oriented DMG you should get some big tanky items.


Guide Top

Split pushing

Your waveclear is realy good and if you get Zz rot you can become the strongest splitpusher in game. You have great towerpushing, great waveclear, and you can duel anyone.
