Sup welcome to my Garen guide.
My Garen focuses on being the tank and still supporting your team mates

Pros: -Great Tank, especially for turrets since his shield can block 20% of dmg
-Even with relatively no dmg items he rapes squishy in a pinch
-Supports his team by speeding them up to either chase or run away (Shurelya's Reverie)
-Can hold CC down for awhile

Cons: -Need to get used to using item actives (Pressing 1-3)
-Only one type of CC for use only single target
-No attacks other then his Q and E combo
-W active kinda low time

Summoner Spells

Flash and Exhaust
Can ghost get you over walls? Nooohohoho way.
Exhaust so you can slow down main target and cripple him for the kill.

Other nice spells would be Fortify just to be a **** and protect towers or teleport to become more mobile of get those tele-ganks.

Early/Mid/Late Game

Early Game.

Okay so you just started out you're in a lane, until lvl 3 you should be staying in bush running out with your Q and Judgementing to harass the enemy team. Once you get lvl 3 get your W and farm for its passive which will give you ridiculous armor and magic resist for this time in game.

Mid Game.

By now you should have your boots/treads, HoG, Philo/Avarice, and maybe a giants belt. What you should be doing now if your W passive is farmed you should be either just keep farming or gank lanes

Late Game.

Team fights should have started and you should have your Merc treads, Reverie, Sunfire, and Quicksilver. I usually wait for the other team to initiate so in the midst of a team fight I can silence their caster/carry so my team can chase for the kill while protecting my own. Whenever you get the chance try to judgement their whole team for extra dmg output. If your team does their job then you should win.

Ending

Look, i'm just a regular player honestly I don't know how this'll go in ranked game as i'm not really into competitive play.

Solo top is kinda iffy with this build. In my opinion he should be supporting his team mate or be supported by a Janna or something bottom lane.

So yeah try out my build wont work every time but you'll be a great help to your team
