“Garen wins the start of trades, but runs out of damage as his spin ends, but your constant autoattacking will only ramp up. After 6 you should easily win 1v1s.”
“Freeze, dont stand in his e, dont give him free crashes and recalls hes rly weak early.
Dont w his w.
His w cd is very long, abuse it.
Dblade start, bork rush.”
“This is a pretty difficult matchup, take conq and hope for the best. We never beat this champion in lane since his W completely negates ours, his silence is obnoxious to say the least, and his execute damage scales with the HP we gain on our own R. Garen's biggest weakpoint is that he is pretty immobile without Q so its easy to constantly turn off his passive with E AA Q harass. Look to stand in minions waves during his spin to reduce the damage he does, and stick around after his Q silence ends to try and trade back into him. Don't eat to many Q's early or he can ignite dive you under turret early and the lane will quickly become disgusting and unplayable.”
“His all in beats your all in if you're below 50. He silences you so you can't W his R, so make good trades and beat him through fundamentals. ”
“(Top) His 4 is painful, do AA E(mid air) Q (as auto reset) di it really fast and run back spamming W , if he's scared or doesn't have R you can just use one more Q, if he E you he deals less damage if he hits minions as well.
I can't wait for him to get nerfed :D”
“Same energy for darius.
To play back and make "Divine Sunderer" as fast as possible”
“Sometimes brawn is too strong for brain. You can use as much IQ as you want, but HURDUR SPIN TO WIN.”
“Place the barrel underneath you and wait for him to Q to you, then place another one on his face, you can zone him hard. Try to block his passive by Quing him. Watch out for outplays tho as he can flash on you every 5 minutes and ult you for 40%hp true damage so be prepared.”
“(d shield, flash/ignite, bone plating/overgrowth)
pretty free for yone because like darius players, garen's are really aggressive for no good reason. but unlike darius players, garens are pussies. it's really annoying as opposed to frustrating when he silences u and then runs away or stacks his conq a million times over with a single e cast, but other than that, this is not that bad of a laning phase. respect his r damage because that shit executes from half health for some reason. short trades are useless since he just runs to sit under turret and regen all his health, so consistently poke him while he's in ur face to force a bad recall or all-in if u have the damage for it”
“Garen is an easy matchup but is kinda complicated to trade against. You need to place your blade up constantly and punish him with empowered Qs. if he uses Q, block it with W and if he uses E, you can taunt through him, either to disengage or to engage and get another 3 empowered Qs. At lvl 6 he has his ult but if you got a lead early, you should be able to beat him.”
