Garen

The Might of Demacia

Fighter Tank

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.

Perseverance (GarenP)

If Garen has not recently been struck by damage or enemy abilities, he regenerates a percentage of his total health each second.

Decisive Strike (GarenQ)

Garen gains a burst of movement speed, breaking free of all slows affecting him. His next attack strikes a vital area of his foe, dealing bonus damage and silencing them.

Courage (GarenW)

Garen passively increases his armor and magic resist by killing enemies. He may also activate this ability to give him a shield and tenacity for a brief moment followed by a lesser amount of damage reduction for a longer duration.

Judgment (GarenE)

Garen rapidly spins his sword around his body, dealing physical damage to nearby enemies.

Demacian Justice (GarenR)

Garen calls upon the might of Demacia to attempt to execute an enemy champion.

Garen Counter Tips

Stack armor items to lower the large amount of physical damage that Garen deals out.

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.

Try to run away from Garen as your health gets lower, as he can execute you quickly with Demacian Justice.
