Threats & Synergies
If You are playing versus Darius don't worry. Poke him with your Q ability and don't let him grab you , if he do it just use E ability to jump away. Poke him and look for 3rd W passive ability to poke him harder. Remember that you have Rage bar , if Darius have lower than 75% of HP complete you furry and kill him , you have movement speed by W ability , slows with Q ability and you have stuns W and R.
Camille is like Darius but she will lost more HP by you pokes. If Camille ult you She must know one thing....DEATH IS NEAR CAMILLE! Watch for her W , She's healing with that. Remember you can jump away with E :)
Fiora is champion with big damage , She's poking with Q but you have counter on that , remember Gnar is distance Champion with small form so your W ability is giving you advantage. Of course Fiora can counter your stuns with her W , so your every engage with Mega Gnar should look like that E > attack her with meele attack until She will use W > W > AA > Q > R > you should have E already , if you don't just use everything you have. If you can't use R into wall use your R ability and push enemy under turret :)
GangPlank is 0 for Gnar , poke with Q and wait for your Mega Gnar form , your combo is unbrekable , don't worry , his healing with ability is nothing for you. Your Combo with mega gnar form E < W < AA < Q < R < AA
Pantheon is really hard enemy at start , exactly if he will play with ignite on Top like unskilled noob. Your first item VS him is Blade of the Ruined King and 2nd is Deadman's PLate. Poke Panth and ask your jungler for gank.
Riven is really mobile (?) champion so your Poke with Q can be hard , but dont worry , you have AA , If she will dash you have E :).
Renekton is hard champion for Gnar because his dash with W ability Stun is 70% counter for Gnar's E. Poke him hard , everytime he's dashing just use E that fast as you can , remember to do not fight before 80% of your rage bar will be collected (?)
Tryndamere...........yea. He's undead , he have crits and big healing , but you have really big counter on him , your W ability and your stuns , every Tryndamere engage under turret mens death for him. Still dont fight like Daredevil before 80% progress on your rage bar.
Sion can do nothing VS you. Pokes , lows , W ability , jumping away , movement speed by W and your Mega Gnar form. 1st item is Black Cleaver , 2nd BOTRK 3rd Deadman's Plate 4th Hurricane. Just run around. YOU SPIN ME RIGHT ROUND!!!!
Mundo is kind of hard enemy vs Gnar , your Pokes are healed by his Q , but you have movement speed by W , so Poke him with Q and W passive ability and don't let him hit you with Q. You have E to jump away if you could lost that battle. Poke Mundo and let him use R , run away until end of his R , than just kill him , really simple rule.
Illaoi.....that enemy need really big focus and skill with Gnar. Her E and Q are dealing too big damage at start so you need to poke with Q and wait for jungler. Remember to do not start fight AND DON'T EVEN THINK TO KILL HER IF SHE HAS 50% OF HP. Her R will give you big damage and you will die in a second , so poke until Illaoi will have 35% of HP , then you can attack , but wait for yout Rage bar , it must be on 70% , if it is you can engage.
Galio...hard enemy because If you use E too late you will lose a lot of HP. Your first item are boots , not doran's blade but boots. Poke and jump away with E.
Nasus is your 1st ban if you really want to play Gnar. He's stacking and you can do nothing vs that. Only one tip for you , ask your jungler to babysit.
Tahm Kench..... Frog the Killer. Gnar is too weak to fight him in early game. DOn't fight him and run away if you will get 1st Q from him , his dmg is really big for mini Gnar. Poke and ask jungler for help that fast as he can. Your 1st item is Black Cleaver 2nd Deadman'sPlate and 3rd BOTRK
Urgot is unstopable you pokes are nothing for his shield and AAs. If he grab you with R you are dead. Try to not be poked by his Q.
Yasuo :). Uf you are plaing VS him it's free win on Top. He's W maybe is countering you but you,r Poke is harder , you have E and movement speed by W ability. Hi's every engage if you have 70% of rage means death for him , Your stuns are deadly for him. If Yasuo put wind wall and he will attack you just run around him and kill. Yasuo > Soraka > Gnar :)
