Garen Matchups Overview

Garen General information

Garen tips and tricks

If you’ve been bullied heavily by the enemy champion, hold back and wait for your Passive to kick in to gain some health back.

Use your CourageW as a tool to avoid CC or burst when trading. You do not want to be caught without it when the enemy Jungler ganks your lane, so only use it when you’re committing to a trade.

You can cancel your JudgmentE early and finish the enemy off with basic attacks. Keep this in mind if you are planning on using your Demacian JusticeR to execute the enemy.
