Threats & Synergies
She is a prick. She can easily outmanuver you. Her shield is broken. Your ultimate won't work well unless you can flawlessly pull out your combo with her Flash already gone and it's a lvl situation AND her health is already low (and yours must NOT be low cuz her Ultimate is kinda like yours...)
Jax is a pain in the a**. This lil' beach will make your life hell once he hits lvl 6. Do NOT overestimate your R damage when you're fighting him under tower(dive)!!! His ultimate will COMPLETELY negate an insta-kill chance, so make SURE you can jebait out his E AND his R before going in. PLEASE...
She sucks early game, but do NOT let her roam around the map, or GOD FORBID let her reach her lvl 16... Make sure you end the game FAST or try to gank her with your teammates when she's isolated. Her ranged attacks combined with her very op protective R spell makes teamfights a very BAD time.
Really depends on how good of a MOBA player you are in general. Dodge her Es. Dodge her Qs. Dodge her W... You can't. So just try your best to dodge her Es at least. Her Ultimate isn't that strong in the early game, so 1v1ing her isn't that hard and if she is NOT running Ignite and she already used Flash, then it should be a free kill. Unless you are VAD at dodging.(피지컬 ㅊㅇ. ㅌㅊㅇ)
Ornn surprisingly does a LOT of damage without even building damage items. And since my build is built around Attack Speed and not so much Tank, make SURE you don't play so aggresively against him in the early game. Wait out your time and go in AFTER he has no ultimate.
Her Qs are very close ranged, so make sure you stay behind the melee minions. Make sure she uses Q before you try to go in to Q+E her. Try to run a blue cloak item if she succeeds in building a Gunblade and if two or more of her teammates are AP damage Champions. If you are a good Garen player, you can jebait a Flash from Akali after Chaining Q into E and spin around her Shadow Swamp Smoke Bomb thingy. Don't even have to Ignite. When she is visible and you Q again, she will Flash without hesitation. EZ
Yorick is just a better Garen, but with Ghouls. Do NOT overestimate your damage output because trust me. You will get DESTROYED. Either rely on your jungler to finish him up, or try to utilize your Q to get last hits and do NOT let him Q you. His Q hits you HARDER than you can hit him. Jebait his R and his Q AND his E and then maybe you can win this matchup.
If you're a good Garen player, you know you HAVE to kill Darius at least 2-3 times before you really gain an advantage. His Q has a rather short range if he misses his E grab. Try to bait out his Q and then go in. Make sure you get CLOSE and PERSONAL, since his Q does the most damage the farther away from the center of Darius's avatar. His W is annoying because it slows, so when he pulls out his W+E+Q combo, charge right into him with Q+E+W with Ignite to maximize your damage and minimize his. This will make you win the damage trades. Unfortunately, Darius will still be a HUGE threat even if you win your lane. So try to kill him like 8 times throughout the game, or just push their Top Inhibitor, and then force out Darius 1 on 1 by looking at the mini map. Or just try to kill him first every time during the teamfights. Your mission is to keep Darius from farming and killing Champions at all times before he gets stronger than you.
Her W REALLY hurts. Go for Thornmail. Screw my build. Go for Thornmail+RighteousGlory+Ninja Tabby instead of Raylai's Sceptor and Nashor's Tooth and Boots of Attack Speed. Please. Her W REALLY hurts.
He is such a c*** to deal with as Garen. When you get too close, he pushes you away with his hammer. When he's far away, he pokes you with his Gun Q... Play safe until you have 1-2 decent items. Force out a 1v1 fight against him by split pushing Top. Kill Jayce and then try to GTFO with Deadman's Plate movement bonus. Good Luck Soldier.
Annoying and he SLAPS. Play passive by getting CS with Qs. If you want to fight him, jebait his jump thingy and make sure it's a 1 on 1 fight.
Jebait her counter or you are SCREWED. Just play EXTREMELY passive and make sure you don't fight her alone. That's all I've got. Jebait her counter.
Go for Grievous Wound items to counter his W. Do NOT underestimate this guy when he is low health! When he is half health, try to jebait his Flash by Igniting + Q + E... As soon as you can hit him with Ignite + Q combo when he is half health, you can guaranteee his Flash UNLESS you are a bad Garen player and can't dodge his Q.
He is a ranged Champion with a Blind... Great... Jebait his Q and W And then you can win Otherwise, once he hits lvl 6, buy the red radar trinket and try your best... Remember it's REALLY hard to catch a Wed Teemo as Garen, so try to catch him out of surprise.
She is more dangerous than vayne early game do NOT engage on her unless you can jebait both her Blind AND her kick + 3 bolts spell. Maaaaan she's such a ***** again. as I've mentioned with Vayne... Build tanky items. Ignore my build. Go for Thorn+Righteous
Jebait his E and W. Boy you're gonna have fun
Go for Grievous Wound items to counter his Q heal. Honestly, Renekton's a pushover. Make sure you fight him 1 on 1 with his Ultimate gone. Oh yeah. Jebait his fricking E, so he doesn't just GTFO in the middle of a fight.
He can jebait while you wait in the bush OR you can jebait while HE waits in the bush. Possible with just two: you and him
His Q is VERY SUPERB. Since you're abilities are very single-target oriented, his grab is BERRRRRRY GAREN. DAMACIA
His R is OP. Make sure you know when his ultimate was a really gud one. like a 2 men ultimate and nobody else is around. Flash into them with Q+E with your team behind your back. Ez win.
His speedy boi His very CC Wow.
He pushes He protects But most importantly, he THICC
Again. Single target.
His slow is good
His ultimate is SO GOOD with Garen. DAMACIA
