New here, but in my estimation, there are a couple problems with what you're asking.

1. Building as a tank is ALWAYS situational. Depends on the enemy team comp. Heavy AD - looking at Randuin's, Sunfire works on Garen (don't love it as an item), etc. (please DON'T build thornmail unless you are just getting TRUCKED by like ONE superfed carry, it's a pretty trash item in most circumstances). Heavy AP - FoN and the like. It just depends on the game.

2. I am not in love with the idea of "full tank Garen" at all. Admittedly, while he can build as a tank and still deal a little damage, his lack of hard CC just seems to make him more suited to an offtank role. I don't really play him, but I would think atmog's and then defensive items would make a good Garen.

Thoughts?

Full tank, no. Off-tank with Atmas and enough HP items, sure.

Garen isnt a tank, but a tanky-dps. You're not supposed to get only armor, MR and HP, you should get both defense and offense

Let me make this simple:


Tank_________Tanky-DPS_________AD carry

Garen can go full tank but then he has no real damage, just his ult. He goes off-tanky and he becomes more viable then a full ad garen.

Because tank Garen is a worse tank Mundo with a silence but with no regenerating ult.

Going tank is, in my opinion, not about the damage but the disable capacity. Garen can't go full tank because his 4 spells don't give him the CC/utility that would compensate/balance with poor damage.
Leona can go tank, because even with full tank/support items, she brings a lot to her team.

Garen, if he does'nt bring damage, will bring ... a silence ? a bad endgame aoe and a KS ult.
You want damage, especially because garen goes from skill-dmg to dps champ when the game last, with some tankiness to be able to survive when you go through enemy team catching that enemy carry.
Tank garen is just ignored.

Nope.

Garen isn't a tank.
