Garen is a tanky fighter that is played in the Baron Lane. Garen is one of the easiest champions to play, yet he is still one of the strongest because of his tankiness and high damage from Judgment and execution from his Ultimate Demacian Justice. He can make his way through crowds of enemies to kill high-value targets on the enemy team. Garen is strong at all stages of the game. He is very difficult to chase down and kill, and he's also difficult to escape from.
If Garen has not been struck by damage or enemy abilities within the last few seconds, he regenerates missing health per second. This is most effective during the laning phase, where Garen wants to take short trades so when he walks away, he will be able to heal the damage taken.
You can walk up to an enemy and fight them for a few seconds, then walk away and regenerate all the health back that you lost.
Garen breaks free from all slow, becoming immune to them for under a second and gaining bonus movement speed for a few seconds. The next attack within a few seconds is empowered to deal physical damage and silence the target for over a second.
Most of the time, you don't want to use this Ability to chase down enemies as you won't be able to silence them or make use of the extra damage you can deal. Instead, try to use this when in close range between your auto attacks to deal the most damage.
Garen reduces damage taken for a few seconds. For the first second, the damage reduction is higher than the rest of the duration, and Garen gains Tenacity. This means that all crowd control towards Garen is reduced. It's important to time this Ability correctly as soon as you are about to take a lot of damage and try not to waste it; otherwise, Garen can be pretty vulnerable and take a lot more damage.
Garen rapidly spins in a blade storm for a few seconds, dealing physical damage eight times. Enemies hit by the blade storm's outer edge are critically struck for increased damage.
Garen can re-cast this Ability at any time to stop spinning at any point.
You can combo Decisive Strike (1st Ability) with Judgment to gain movement speed when spinning around.
It would be best if you always looked to hit enemies and minions with the outer edge of the spin. This will help you deal more damage to push the wave or help you deal more damage to enemy champions.
Garen calls forth the might of Demacia to execute an enemy champion, dealing true damage. Demacian Justice deals more damage depending on how much health the enemy is missing. Nearby enemies also take true damage, and the damage is increased depending on how much health they are missing.
It's essential to note that you should never use Demacian Justice if the enemy is over 50% HP. You will not deal a lot of damage at all, and you will waste the damage potential of your Ultimate.
Garen is a solo front-line tank that can take and deal a lot of damage. Black Cleaver is a strong item that gives Garen some damage while giving him some tank stats to help him survive. Black Cleaver's passives also work great with Garen's kit. You can reduce the enemy's armor when dealing physical damage, which boosts Garen's damage output even more. You also gain movement speed when auto-attacking, which helps Garen chase down enemies. Hullbreaker is another powerful item for Garen that gives him a lot of damage and a lot of tank stats when you are alone, thanks to Hullbreaker's passive which helps if you are looking to split push for the rest of the game.
For runes, we have:
With Garen, you can walk up to enemy champions using Courage to auto-attack enemy champions to proc Grasp to start stacking the extra health that can help a lot in the mid and late-game.
Triumph helps Garen heal back up when getting a takedown on an enemy champion. This means he can look to escape or rejoin the teamfight to deal more damage.
Last Stand helps Garen deal more damage when he drops low on health. Since Garen is a bruiser and he builds some Health in his build, falling low on health is not too much of a problem.
Legend: Tenacity is the best rune choice here for this row. Garen doesn't need the attack speed or healing from the other two options. Tenacity helps Garen vs Crowd Control and slows; since Garen is a melee champion that wants to dash into the enemy team, he can be hit by a lot of crowd control.
Second Wind helps Garen a lot, especially during the laning phase. It allows him to take short trades, and when he backs off, he heals up to stay in the lane longer. This also stacks with his passive, Perseverance.
Garen does well in the early game. He has good base damage from his abilities and can take a lot of damage with Courage, allowing you to walk up and start taking short trades. Judgment is a great ability to help Garen push minion waves in the early game to create pressure, and it also helps when you are taking short trades against enemy champions. If you do get low on health, don't be afraid because you can walk away, and Perseverance will regen a lot of health over time, allowing you to stay in lane longer.
Garen is a great team fight champion in the late game. You want to always stay with your team and try not to get caught out by yourself. When a team fight happens, you want to make sure you are at the front protecting your team. You are a tank with a lot of health and resistance to survive a long time against the enemy team. Ensure you always go towards the biggest threat on the enemy team and try to kill them.
Alternatively, you can look to split push and take towers with Demolish and Hullbreaker if the opportunity arrives but be careful not to extend too far and get caught.
Overall, Garen is a very easy and strong champion. He is an excellent starter champion for anyone that wants to practice playing in the Baron Lane. You are a big tank that can survive a lot of damage whilst also being able to one-shot the enemy carries.
