Pros / Cons

Pros
-Excellent escapes
-Quite Good farming capability
-Excellent Lane suppress.
-Quite resistant to ganks.
-Good in both early and late game.
Cons
-You need your team to be succesfull usually.
-Blade of the ruined king would dominate you.
-You have nothing to do if you start feeding

Items

Now that you know the pros and cons, I'm going to talk a little about our items.

First of all, you probably noticed that I have listed 3 situations you might face. Those are useful builds for those situations. I guarantee that they wont crush you no matter what. UNLESS YOU FEED! Now, let's talk about the Doran's Shield. When your passive activates, you are going to be a MONSTER. Your enemy will feel like they are stabbing a bloody STARFISH! You will have a health regen around 14 per sec and that is excellent for first levels. You just stay under your turret and refill your health while your opponent desperately tries to dive you, giving you a first blood! Doran's Shield is very important for garen in my opinion.
Now,you get a pair of boots as usual, and you get LOTS OF POTS (pink is fabulous, deal with it) Then you build yourself a nice neat phage, you can get the long sword first if you want damage, or the ruby crystal if you want survivability. The rest of the builds are simple, damage, health, damage, health.
Now, for the support build, things are a little different. I never used it and I find it unnecessary. But I thought I can put it there for your entertainment laddies.

Skill Sequence

when I first played garen I tried to up my w skill. Then I noticed that it only decreases its cooldown and extends its duration DONT, DO, THAT!. You can also up your E skill straight forward but I think e is quite useful when you are an offtank.

Spells

The first thing you have to know is, your E slows you down when you are going through minions so DON'T USE YOUR E TO ESCAPE! Only when you are running in an open space and you want to deal damage to those who are following you. The standard lane harass tactic is, speeding yourself up with your Q, silencing your opponent, and then E'ing all the way back, that way, you also hit minions and counter push. If you do this loads of times, he will have so little health left that you won't even need to use your ulti.

Masteries

The masteries are variable and you gotta be really defensive. You can take some offensive runes if you want, I don't trust my masteries.

Here, have a taric

Runes

I would recommend more defensive runes but I am a player that plays garen SPARTA STYLE You can change the AD marks with Armor Pen. marks if you wish. The runes depend on your play style and trollness (and also your IP :)).
I don't have much to tell you about runes so, have some baby tarics

Summary

THANKS FOR READING MY BUILD
Rate what you think I deserve, this is my first build, I don't expect much but you will find this build useful hopefully. You have learned how to farm, how to harass, and how to BE FABULOUS!! That's the most important thing in league of legends.
Best of luck in the Fields of Justice Summoner!
Stinson, out.
