Garen , The Might of Demacia

Story

  • A proud and noble warrior, Garen fights as one of the Dauntless Vanguard. He is popular among his fellows, and respected well enough by his enemies—not least as a scion of the prestigious Crownguard family, entrusted with defending Demacia and its ideals. Clad in magic-resistant armor and bearing a mighty broadsword, Garen stands ready to confront mages and sorcerers on the field of battle, in a veritable whirlwind of righteous steel.

Tips

  • Garen's regeneration greatly increases if he can avoid receiving damage for several seconds.
  • Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. For effective trading, try to position such that only the enemy champion is hit.
  • Garen is only constrained by cooldowns, making items such as Black Cleaver very effective for him.

  • Stack armor items to lower the large amount of physical damage that Garen deals out.
  • Try to run away from Garen as your health gets lower, as he can execute you quickly with Demacian Justice.
  • Be careful about attacking Garen in brush. It often will lead to taking full damage from Judgment.
  • Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. If getting out of its radius isn't possible, move through allied minions to reduce damage taken.
