                                                       1 - Introduction

Sup everyone , its Narmar here again with another guide for Garen's time to shine (more than his armor).

This guide will be covering over his abilities , as well as both his AD and Tank builds.

Enjoy reading on.

 


                                                            2 - Abilities

Passive :

Perseverance :

Garen will regenerate .5% of his maximum health per second if he does not take damage for 7 seconds or more.

Skill Use : Great passive indeed. Sadly too under rated but still one of the best regenration passive bonus. I mean you can go to another lane with no hp at all and arrive there with your hp full as if nothing happened to you. Or if hit so hard in your lane then you can just go back hugging the tower for sometime before returning back with all your hp. Not one scratch.

 

Decisive Strike :

Garen gains (15/20/25/30/35)% Movement Speed for 4 seconds. His next melee attack deals (30/45/60/75/90) (+(1.4 per attack damage point)) physical damage and silences his target for 2.5 seconds.

Skill Use :  Great AD Ability. Best used against squishies , just use it on Ezreal and watch him cry you one hell of a big river.

 

Courage :

Passive: Garen's armor and magic resist are permanently increased by 0.5 every time he kills an enemy unit. This bonus is maxed at (25).

Active: Garen places a defensive shield on himself for the next 3 seconds, decreasing all damage taken by (20/24/28/32/36)%.


Skill Use :  This Ability can change the tides of the battle around. If maxed early can give a HUUUUGE INCREASE in armor and MR. IF  timed correctly and initiated with , can really get you out of the fight without being badly hurt. Practice Makes Perfect as always.

 

Judgment :

Garen rapidly spins his sword around his body for 3 seconds, reducing the duration of slows by 50% and dealing (50/90/130/170/210) (+(1.4 per attack damage point)) physical damage to nearby enemies every second. Garen removes any slow effects on him when casting Judgment.

The bonus damage is further increased by Garen's critical strike chance. Damage to minions is reduced by 50%.

Skill Use : Can greatly have a lot of pressure on the enemy team. Once used , you will find all the enemy team is running away and dropping like flies. No one will even dare to go near you. This is an advantage ... use it wisely.

 

Demacian Justice :

Garen calls upon the might of Demacia to attempt to execute an enemy champion, dealing (175/350/525) magic damage plus 1 damage for every (3.5/3/2.5) health they are missing.

Skill Use :  This is your signature finishing ability. The Hardest to use however because you must use it to help finishing off enemies NOT kill stealing with it.  


                                             3 - AD Build VS Tank Build

So you just chose Garen , good job. BUT do you even know how to use him? Or which/what build to use with him.

Garen is a flexible hero so try to stick to your team as always. There are 2 builds that can be used with him , these are AD and Tank builds

Let go over each build's pros and cons

 

AD Build Pros And Cons :

High bursting/initiation power with his (Q) spell.

High Damage with his (E) spell.

Enemies cannot escape if they get chased down .

Hard Threat against enemy squishies.

Rely on items , if you get 1 item wrong then you are doomed.

Lacks initiation power.

Fear needs to be put in the enemies' heart , or else they will just keep turning around and bury you alive.

Not good at holding oracles.

 


Tank Build Pros and Cons :

Good for initiating

Can interrupt skill shots for your team's squishies

Invincible with his (W) spell

Good at holding oracles

Turret diving is his hobby

Not enough damage dealt

Posses no threat and all these can be ignored easily and you will be useless to your team.
