General information

Garen Abilities

Description
Cooldowns

Perseverance

Garen_Passive
P

Garen regenerates 1.5%-10.1% (based on level) of his maximum health every 5 seconds. This is interrupted for 8 seconds if Garen takes damage from any source other than minions and small monsters.

Decisive Strike

GarenQ
Q

Garen removes all slows on him and gains 30% bonus movement speed for a few seconds. Garen's next auto-attack within the next 4.5 seconds will deal bonus physical damage and will silence the target for 1.5 seconds.

Courage

GarenW
W

Passive: Garen permanently gains 0.25 bonus armor and magic resistance every time he kills an enemy. This stacks up to a maximum of 30 bonus resistances. After reaching this threshold, his armor and magic resistance is increased by 10%. Active: Reduces incoming damage by 30% for a few seconds and gains a shield and 60% tenacity for the first 0.75 seconds.

Judgment

GarenE
E

Garen becomes ghosted and spins like a Beyblade. He spins 7 times over 3 seconds, dealing physical damage with each spin. Enemy champions hit six times will have their armor reduced by 25% for 6 seconds. Further hits refresh the duration of the debuff and after 1 second, this ability can be cast again. Recasting it will end this ability earlier.

Demacian Justice

GarenR
R

Garen selects a target enemy champion, dealing them with true damage. The target is revealed for 1 second, starting from the beginning of the cast time.

Basic combos

Auto-Reset

AA
GarenQ
Q
eAA

It is common game knowledge that Garen's Q is an AA reset. Always auto before casting your Q for extra damage.

EQ Combo

GarenE
E
GarenQ
Q
eAA
GarenR
R

The EQ combo, strictly speaking, does more damage than the Bread and Butter Combo; Garen's E armour reduction will allow the following empowered auto to deal more damage. Q can be activated during or after E for stickiness or disengage respectively.

Bread and Butter Combo

GarenQ
Q
GarenE
E
eAA
GarenR
R

Garen's most straight forward way of engaging his targets.and dealing damage. Q gives Garen bonus MS to engage with and the silence prevents his targets from using disengages to escape his E. Post-6, R is used at the end (if within lethal).

Quick tips to play Garen

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.
