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.
This is how I play Garen. If your team isn't feeding too much, victory won't be far away.
My mastery tree is 21/9/0 and my spells are ghost and ignite. This will lead to a lot of kills.
This build can be used in 3v3 as well as in 5v5, so let's seperate them.
If you're playing a 3v3 with Garen, make sure you take ghost and ignite. Those spells will get you a lot of kills. Your first item is Doran's shield + a healt pot. Buy them fast and gank bottom. Garens judgement + ghost/ignite should lead to First Blood easily!
After gank, go top and damage your enemy as much as possible, using judgement + Decisive strike (which gives you movement speed). You won't be able to kill him, but that's no problem. You both lost health, but your passive will give you a bit of ur health back. When you got enough health back, strike again using the same spells. Repeat this till you get the kill (ps: you will!)
Stay top until you pushed the opponent's turret, or until lvl 6. This is the time to watch bottom lane, and check for good gank moments. You should have boots of swiftness now, since ur a good minion killer because of ur decisive strike + offense mastery tree. Get the enemy as low health as possible, using judgement and decisive strike. When he's low health, use ur ulti + ignite to finish him off.
Your 2nd item can be Guardian Angel or Warmog's armor. I prefer Guardian, but it's your own choice ofcourse... After these items, i would buy sunfire cape, giving you a lot of health + AoE damage. Depending on your opponents, buy thornmail / another sunfire cape. Good luck!
Pretty much the same tactic. I also use ghost + ignite in 5v5. Buy Dorans shield + Health pot and go mid. Garen is a good champ to solo with, even against ranged guys. Last hit minions with decisive strike, hit opponent with judgement, get him dead, get the turret, reach level 6, go gank other lanes, ... If you're level 11, team up and push 1 lane. Teamfights can start, having you as the teamcarrier -> good game, +1 win!
I hope you guys will try this out, and have fun winning!
