This build is intended for a quick view on Tank Garen

This is a quick view and go way for Garen. Only a few vital tips will be mentioned here.

As Garen early game may not be as crucial as a DPS may need. Sometimes staying in their bush to play a bit offensively may score you some early feed.

Although Garen may be one of the hardest champions, Garen does
not stay in God Mode 24/7

During Middle game around 8-14, Garen is best at farming after his sunfire cape.

Combos

The Universal Combo

Use Decisive Strike to open, Turn on judgement, Auto Attack, Decesive Strike (Pop Shield to avoid damage), Judgement or Demacian Justice.

Why Tank Garen?

As you may have read other builds ex: Stack Dorans blades than rush to an infinity. I found my build for Tank Garen much more durable for smart play. AD Garen may not be the way to go since only his Decisive Strike scales with attack damage. I find being able to hold a sunfire cape longer in a team fight, be easy to melt off everyone around.
