The Might of Demacia

Garen, the pride of the Demacian military and leader of the Dauntless Vanguard, returned from this battle breathless for the first time in his career, though some speculate that this was due to reasons other than exhaustion. The plausibility of these rumors was bolstered when, in every instance thereafter, Garen seized the opportunity to encounter the Blade Mistress again. A paragon of Demacian ethic, Garen never entertained such allegations, for he knew others couldn't understand. Even simply the pursuit of a worthy opponent on the battlefield is, to a true warrior, the reason to rise each morning. The promise of one, particularly so beautifully and diametrically opposed, is the validation of his existence

I use ArP Greater Mark of Desolation , Flat Armor Greater Seal of Armor , Flat M.Resist Greater Glyph of Magic Resist and Flat AD Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage .ArP marks and AD quint help me to farm easyly with Offensive Mastety .And they give me maximum DPS on normal hit and with my skills on early game where is Garens power .I use armor seals and m.resist glyphs to be a lil bit more tanky on the lane phase cuz many time you`ll be solo lane ot top and they will help you to handle lane .Another good way is to pick Armor panetration quintessences,about another runes for me this is best choice for him

When you are in lane try just to last hitting minions,use you E for killing minions only if you want to push the lane (when you want to destroy the turret,go back for shopping or going to gang in another lane)Never use you Q to kill a minion cuz many times it will save your *** from gang or your aggresive lane opponent. It is best if you can freeze the minions in the middle of the lane (not close to your or enemy turret) cuz if minions are too close to your turret u`ll miss some last hits by turret ,if you are close to enemy turret its easy to be ganged.To freeze the lane best thing that you can do is to copy actions of your lane opponent if you are in 1v1 lane that meas if he(she)auto attacking you do the same, if he use skills for fast killing minions you do same.Once you take Sunfire Cape farming is going very easy
