Tips Against Garen in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

xPetu says “Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport Tips: W his Q. E backwards through him when E's. Stop his passive if possible.”
Sovereign Kitten says “Garen has been one of those long time easy match-ups for Teemo, however, with recent changes it made him a even match-up strictly due to the fact that he is much faster and deals much more damage. If you see him activate his (Q), you should activate your own (W) to keep your distance. If he manages to catch you hit him with your (Q) to prevent his (Q) silence. Keeping your distance and poking safely while out of his reach is a solid strategy. He gain's more damage based on attack speed from his (E). So don't get caught with him spinning into you. Morellonomicon will help with his massive sustain. ”

ForgottenProject says “This used to be a Skill matchup until he got a slight rework and now he's strong. Don't underestimate his damage. [1]All his trades start with him running up to you with his Q but good Garen Players can Bluff. [2]Parry his Q and you will win the trade. [3]Good Garen Players will try to bait your parry out before they Q you, dont fall for it. [4]He stacks Conqueror super fast so don't underestimate him. If he hits his Q into E, you're in big trouble.”

Quinncidence says “Immobile! I never have a problem with Garen, farm, throw in some grasp AA's when he goes for minions and just enjoy a fairly easy lane. Be aware if Garen plays with Ignite, if thats the case you have to respect his all when he has R. Yorick heavily outscales.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T GO EVEN IN TRADES. ALWAYS EXTEND THE FIGHT. DON’T EAT FOR E COMBO. CARE FOR HIS IGNITE+R. CONQUEROR RECOMMENDED Garen is a very easy matchup for you. The only time he even has a chance of killing you is through some ignite+R cheese he can do level 6. His ultimate is stronger than yours as an execute on a single target but that should not matter as your kit hard counters his. If he steps up to CS, make sure to chunk him out hard. The only point in the game where trading is a bad idea is level 1 IF he goes for the Grasp -> Q max build. If he goes the normal, E max damage Garen, then it will actually be so free as he will be very easy to wear down. A great way to screw him over is to save your W or E for when he silences you. This way, you will CC him long enough for the silence to wear off, allowing you to dumpster him. Ideally, you should try to kite out his E while you try to Q him as it stacks up Conqueror really quickly but even if he hits you with every last bit of his damage, he still loses. MAKE SURE TO KITE HIS E WITH YOUR GHOST POST LEVEL 6 IF YOU ARE EVEN WITH HIM. OTHERWISE HE KILLS YOU WITH IGNITE + R.”
I Am Goliath says “You want to push garen in to his turret as much as possible early laning phase as long as they don't have a good early game jungler, because it's pretty hard to actually kill him early but you outscale very hard. if you see him charge Q simply run away until it runs out or E away, garen is very easy to kite so he shouldn't be a problem for you. once you have W max + Black cleaver you just shred him with your W.”

ForgottenProject says “I ban Garen ATM due to him being VERY hard matchup no matter how "good" the garen is. A bronze garen can do garens Q+E combo and gwen really cant block it. W when hes running at you with Q and E before it applys to you, hope you can get out of his E range. Remember you can use your R to slow him during his E.”

Psychopathic Top says “After Garen rework this matchup became incredibly hard. Garen’s Q spam is very low mechanic and does a ton of damage. Do not trade vs it at all early and let him shove with spin. If you stall, the lane becomes easier. Just avoid trading vs him ever in the early game, let him shove slowly and be patient. With spin adding conq stacks the new Garen is very hard to out stat. He is tankier than you late game, which isn’t good, since he can stop split and go even with you in 5 v 5. Look to out macro him and try to rotate around the map.”

PH45 says “Most Garen's just run Ignite and play to win the lane during early. The key in this matchup is to not fight him while his E is up. You can also just dodge his Q with your E. After his E runs out you can engage on him, block his Q and wait out his W before finishing your stun for maximum stun duration. You have to remember to keep his passive down if you want to wither him down, as otherwise he will regen his hp back up quickly.”
Drake6401 says “This feels a bit like a counter to Renekton because Garen has an answer to just about every strength Renekton leans on. He has a silence to stop abilities, innate armor, and passive healing to out sustain. Try to deny him his passive heal with Q every chance you get. I found it effective not to run from Garen if he engages on you. Auto-attack him as he does his spin since you likely can't outrun it anyway, then once his damage is fully over, stun him and trade back. Before he stacks attack speed, you win these kind of exchanges. If he has Ignite and you don't, you'll have to respect him a bit more as you two trade so evenly that the Ignite is a real difference maker.”

Tips Against Garen in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “This guy is really strong and stacks conqueror crazy fast. He outscales you hard after the midgame if you didn't stomp him yet. Fortunately, he is very easy to gank like a lot of toplaners. His Q cancels your ultimate. ”

Suseri says “Similar to Mundo only difference is that he can trade better. If you wanna be safe just farm and fight him after some items.”

SoSheolH says “Very fast, can do a lot of damage if you stay on him and has a true damage ult. But it's Garen, destroyed outside of 1v1s and most laners shouldn't feed into him outside of bronze.”

GuerraDyr says “Garen is annoying but building Johndyr can help dealing against him”
SirGobogi says “His silence is literally so fucking annoying. He will stick to you like glue. He is a tank and you can melt him later on, but beware of his win button which your W cannot counter.”

Loul_60 says “It's Garen, not much you can do. Blue form into Garen is literal suicide. Red form into Garen isn't great either, but as long as you can hit your W while he uses his E and then ult him before he ults you, you should be alright.”

DjapeFromSerbia says “If you ever try to kill him he will Q you and start spining to win, also don't forget his ultimate that deals true damage. Don't forget that his Q silinces you!”
Crossknight06 says “Very hard to play against ban him or use e and poke him for delete his passive tank or anti tank for build need jg”

liserith says “Garen jungle is not very common, but if you do come across this matchup, you should have no problem. Wall his Q with your E, and kite his E. His ganking is nothing to worry about.”

VelocityCrack says “Dodge. It is ok. Just dodge or take in mind you will NEVER be a worthy opponent. If you play vs him do NOT interact with him. His E, combined with his Q speed, combined with his R, combined ussualy with his Ignite, combined with his immortality, makes no chance to you to kill him 1v1. Only try to kill him if he is 1 hp, you are full hp, he is isolated and has all CD's down, if not, run. Ah, and never engage him, never, unless you have Phase Ruse. And Evolve W at lvl 11. Obligatory. Noob champ.”
