Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Ok, hello im Had030 and this is my guide for Garen... Also this is my 1st guide so dont be a **** and leave the page when you read this. Im playing Garen for long time and i can tell that even if Riot says he is "easy" HE IS NOT. Yes, he IS easy to play but hard to master So this guide isnt gonna magicly teach you how to play Garen its gonna help you master him and grab some wins at the start...
FOR RUNES I DONT HAVE ANYTHING SPECIAL TO SAY AND I THINK THEY ARE NOT SO IMPORTANT (PPL HATE ME FOR THAT) FOR ME ITS ALL IN THE SKILL....
FOR YOU GUYS WHO LOVE RUNES THE SECTION IS ABOVE
The core is on the start.... BUT THERE STILL 2 SPOTS LEFT ON YOUR ITEM SLOTS
So we are gonna have 2 possibilities here
- HEAVY CASTER TEAM
1st u take Force of Nature2nd you go for Guardian Angel/ Aegis of Legion
- HEAVY DPS TEAM
1st- Thornmail2nd- Randuins Omen
ON THE END SWITCH THE DORAN S SHIELD FOR RANDUINS OMEN
OK, here is where the magic starts :P since you wont build your items for DMG you probably wonder: AND WHERE THE **** IS THAT DMG FROM THE BUILD NAME!?!?!
HERE... YOUR QAND ESKILLS ARE VERY STRONG WITHOUT ANY DPS STACKING SO THEY ARE FINE (Q SKILL IS LEVELED ONLY FOR MOVEMENT BOOST AND SILENCE EARLY GAME)
YOUR WSKILL IS ****ING GREAT!!! WHEN YOU STACK UP TO 70% ARMOR AND MAGIC RESIST AND YOU HAVE IT TO ABILITY LVL 5 JUST POP IT AND 3SEC U ARE INVINCIBLE (YEAH JUST LIKE TRYNDAMERE (YOUR HEALTH DOESNT DROP (YEAH JUST LIKE KAYLES ULTI))) THATS 2 ULTIS IN A PACKAGE + ITS YOUR 2ND SKILL SO ITS COOLDOWN IS LIKE 15 SEC AND YOU CAS SPAM IT...
ULTIMATE!!!!THIS YOUR MOST POWERFULL DMG WEAPON!! ON LVL 16 YOU WILL BE UNSTOPABLE
AND A NIGHTMARE (FOR OLAF/XIN/ AND ALL THOSE HALF-TANKS)
REMEMBER TO USE IT ONLY WHEN YOUR TARGET IS LOW - LOWER THEN 1/5 HP
CUZ IT DEALS MORE DMG AS TARGET HAS LESS HP[/u]
I use Ghostto GET THE **** OUT OF GANKS (YOU WILL BE GANKED ALOT) and Igniteto finish low HP runners and sychronize with ur ultimate
Pros / Cons
- GREAT SPELLS
- FUN TO PLAY
- MAKES MUNDO RAGE :P
-I got ONE! :D Early game low MR its not Garens weakness its this builds... but i did so cuz you will preety much kill casters at low lvls with judgment (esspecialy if you have a stuner by ur side(Sion, Udyr, Taric etc.))
Creeping / Jungling
DONT jungle Garen can be played as one and he has potential but nah bad idea... your team wont benefit from it at all...
TRY TO LAST HIT MINIONS WHENEVER U CAN SO YOU STACK UP COURAGE
When you play in the team yo dont have the role of a classic tank - so here are some rules to follow
1. In EVERY teamfight you must go: LAST ONE IN - LAST ONE OUT
2. ALWAYS sacrifice for a carry (take caitlyns bulet etc(save carry from certain death))
3. NEVER try to cast judgment when u are 1v3-4-5 - it wont kill em (it is OP skill but not so OP)
Worst enemies to play against
Karthus - Toxic Waste OP
Kennen - To much range nad DMG + STUN
Kog Maw - Continuos ULTI SPAMING + RANGE + DMG
Mundo - He is though to play against BUT HE WILL PROBABLY RAGE CUZ OF UR ULTI
