Garen: Offtanking As Always
Your votes and comments encourage our guide authors to continue
creating helpful guides for the League of Legends community.
(P.S.: This guide is based on Phreak's build in Garen Champion spotlight)
He doesn't need a lot of low damage strikes - he must deal a lot of damage in a few strikes.
Garen's main idea - is to get fed and carry the game. He's not a full tank, and he's a full DPS.
He is the very everything, what you call an OFFTANK.
Critical Strike from Avarice boosts the damage on his E, which decimates our foes.
Armor Penetration is simply nice.
The main problem we get with such order - is squishiness early game. But late game we get balance resists - ~200 each, and ~4000 health, which will make enemies simply fear us.
Also we get Atma's, takes damage from Warmog's and Randuin's. We get ~250 AD lategame.
Judgment is next, because... Just because... Oh, c'mon, it's GAREN'S JUDGMENT. It's an awesome damage-dealing ability, which is the main source of Garen's damage.
Courage gives us Garen's durability - you can tank a tower, tank a carry - you can tank everything. (Almost everything)
Demacian Justice is Garen's Ultimate.
It's works awesome for KS'es, and in that case, when your enemy is low and runs away. that's when you ultimate and score a kill.
Dodge Seals - we get enough armor with items and W, so Dodge works just fine.
Cooldown Glyphs - Garen has no mana, meaning cooldowns mean pretty much for him.
(P.S.: Health Quints work too)
2. Shout DEMACIAAAA! (Turn your W on, reducing the damage you take)
3. Start a Danse Macabre (Press E)
4. Kill something.
5. In case somebody runs away - turn your Youmuu's on, Desicive Strike too, run to the non-killed ones, and execute them (Use R)
This guide is made more for myself, 'cause I can sometimes forget, what i build :D
Credits go to:
Me, the Mighty GameOveRus (Ego OVER 9000)
Phreak - for making a champion spotlight for Garen, giving me the basic item and rune build, which I invented further and ended in this guide.
All my friends - I love ya all :D
