Ok, so, as you probably know by now, Garen is getting quite a rework this patch. In short, Judgment now scales better off late-game, and Courage now increases armor and magic resistance by flat 20% at all ranks, and Decisive Strike has slow removal instead of Judgment In other words, he needs a new item build. Something that can exploit Courage, while still having quite a lot AD. Any ideas?

Did I help you? Do you feel nice today? Take a look at my guide,I would really appreciate it.

i don't really think he needs a 'new' build so to speak, just minor tweaks to what you build now.

Atma's along with Frozen does seem to be a good choice, as it can be already, but more so now, as Atma's will bulk up your AD by quite a cute bit, while still getting two other useful stats out of it. Definitely a go on those two items. Other than that. Well. Not sure yet. At least a LW in the end will be necessary.

Gap closer, gives crit for Judgment, armor pen for early game, attack damage, CDR. Everything that Garen wants/needs

Why Trinity Force on Corki, he doesn't really scale of AP?

You forgot the early The Brutalizer. Also, Garen needs CDR badly.
He is gonna kill you!!!

Looked over these ideas, and, while I have a general idea what to build on him :
Boots of Swiftness, IE, Phage and FM later, Youmuu's Ghostblade, GA and/or Maw, and I could probably fit in Bloodthirster and Zeke's Herald somewhere in there.

Hovewer, I have no idea for a build order. I only got some blade stacking and boots in the early game, followed by a rushed IE clear, but nothing else beyond that. If I get the damage items first, I am not exploiting the armor passive, and if I build survivability items first, I fall off mid-game , and can't think of a way to combine them. In fact, I am not sure about using IE at all.

Don't really like an early The Brutalizer, it doesn't seem to be nearly as effective on new Garen as it was on the old one.

Did I help you? Do you feel nice today? Take a look at my guide,I would really appreciate it.
