Why does everyone think Garen should be mainly played a tank? every friggin game I see garens stacking suncapes, it's ridiculously ******ed. I haven't seen anyone play dps/hybrid garen other then me, and I have great scores compared to the garens that stack suncapes.

They do it because it gives them the survivability they need to run into the middle of the enemy team and spin, while also giving great DPS output, synergizing well with his spin. I don;t necessarily consider it a tank build, but like I said, it gives surivability and damage. It can actually be very viable.

Yeah somthing like that, some even get thornmails and GA as last item. I have not seen a garen using a last infinity/ghostblade/phantom dancer yet, it's very odd.
I usually get a thornmail/force of nature and a suncape for survivability. I've tried playing suncape garen, it was one of the fewer builds I've used when I just started out using garen, very easy to get a good score with it. I been in that situation with a hybrid and tank garen where I had to really carry my team to victory on TT. I could actually do damage to the turrets with hybrid. I had teammates 1-6 and 0-7 on TT and still manage to comeback with a 15-10 playing hybrid(thornmail and suncape), and I am pretty sure I couldn't do that with a tank suncape garen because my damage input would be to low to destroy the turrets fast enough . and of all the garen's I played I just destroyed them because all they do is stack suncapes. and can't kill me

I can see one or two being good, but not four. Any build that stacks just one item seems lazy to me.


Click on them. You know you want to. Except Jax. He's just there for color.

I've had this guide up on here for a while now, I need to touch it up, but I think its near the top of the rating for guides, anyway, I do agree Sunfire Garen is Zzz...

If Potatis sees your post, Zeec, you will face his wrath of anti-guild-advertising on the forums.

I pity you.
