update matchups
Notes that you may not have seen Back to Top
Runes : go armor or magic resist depends of your opponent, the jungler and the whole enemy team
ex : if you lane against darius but the whole enemy team is AP, go MR

Items :
    STARTER : Go doran's blade if you really know you will destroy your opponent

    LVL 7 = 10 SPINS | (WIT'S END BUILD) : It's the perfect back (1700 golds) if you manage to kill your opponent at lvl 6 without back before

    TANKY FINAL BUILD (IN ORDER) : take black cleaver rather than gargoyle if you want to have more HP and damage, also Black Cleaver is better against champs who deals true damage obviously

    WIT'S END BUILD | 13 SPINS LVL 17 | IN ORDER : build this way if you are ahead

    ALTERNATIVE BUILD | NOT IN ORDER : Mercury > Plated Steelcaps because of the Tenacity but go Steelcaps if they are AD, you can take force of nature if they have more than 2 AP threats

Ability : You can up W at lvl 2 against ranged matchups
Tips for garen Back to Top
  • You can outfarm your opponent by farming camps when you have the push (golems and gromp)
  • Ironspike Whip is really good to push faster early
  • VS Ranged stay in the bush and don't hard push, stay even at farm without getting poked, glacial augment and TP can be good
  • Always take berzerker first (don't if your kda is 0/3 at 6 min) and if needed change it to plated steelcaps or mercury at lvl 16 because berzerker gives 2 spins wich is insane
  • Garen can trade in wave early (with is E), unlike many other champion
  • The rule of MR : If you have less MR than Garen you don't ask him to buy MR
General tips Back to Top
  • /mute all or avoid unnecessary discussions
  • Refillable Potion is very good in lane for sustain
  • Look at the map every 5 seconds
  • When an inhibitor is taken, it is useless to continue pushing on the same lane, you have to take the others
  • don't make mistakes and spot your opponent's mistakes to punish them it seems obvious but it is one of the most important points
  • you must respect the lvl 2 powerspike but your opponent too
  • you have to play with the powerspike lvl 2, lvl 6 and items
