Table of Contents

  • Introduction

    Off-Tank Garen is a very easy build to play. Quite fun actually. I thought up the build just last game, and i went 19/9/20. I figured, why not post it on here? So here it is. Feedback please.

  • Masteries + Runes

    For masteries i go 21/0/9, just with all the attack based masteries. For runes i take all attack damage runes. Garen needs alot of attack damage to start with, and since hit spin doesn't apply on-hit effects, armor pen won't help at all.

  • Summoner Spells

    Recommended: Ignite Exhaust, for ultimate killing.
    Good: Ghost Flash, for awesome movement. Cleanse, It'll stack with spin for epic getaways.
    OK: Teleport, for map control. [spell=Fortify], you are the tank you know. Heal, for well...the obvious.
    Bad: [spell=Rally] No. Clarity Do I really have to say it? Clairvoyance Again. No. Smite ................

  • Items

    For items I started out with Boots of Swiftness, for alot of movement speed early on. For a second item i get Frozen Mallet, it's one of the main items for off-tank Garen. A good 3rd item to start tanking is Warmog's Armor. This item should get you up to 3,000 health. Another extremely useful item for off-tank Garen, Atma's Impaler. This item I get 4th. After this you don't really get that much more attack damage, Youmuu's Ghostblade. For a last and awesome item, [item=Force of Nature]. This item with garens passive should heal about 50 each second.

  • Abilities

    This is your passive. Take advantage of it. Stay out of combat and heal wen low.

    Decisive Strike
    This is a great ability. It is your second mained ability. Use it when running or chasing or just to silence them.

    This ability is not so much useful. Get this at lvl 4 and leave it.

    This is your main ability. Great for running chasing and mauling.

    Demacian Justice
    This is your ult, obviously. What you have to do is use it wen they have about a quarter left.

  • Skilling Order

    LVL 1: Judgment
    LVL 2: Decisive Strike
    LVL 3: Judgment
    LVL 4: Decisive Strike
    LVL 5: Judgment

  • How to kill

    Now what you want to do is, once you have frozen mallet, hit them with Decisive then use Judgment on them, and if they have below 1/4th health, ult them. If they live after that, ignite should kill them. If not, beat them to death.

  • Build Example

    Boots of Swiftness Frozen Mallet Warmog's Armor Atma's Impaler Youmuu's Ghostblade [item=Force of Nature]
