Abilities

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

Q: Decisive Strike
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.

W: Courage
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.

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

R: Demacian Justice
Garen calls upon the might of Demacia to attempt to execute an enemy champion.

Ally 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.

Opponent Tips

  • 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.

Lore

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.
