Garen's regeneration from Perseverance is enhanced when he isn't hit for a few seconds.
Use Judgement mainly when there is 1 enemy champion around, it will deal maximum damage when hitting a single target.
Q: What lane does Garen play?
A: In conventional League play, Garen is most often played in the top lane. With his passive heal, Garen can take on other roles, but he's most commonly played as a Top champion.
Q: How can I carry as Garen?
A: You can build Garen either as a bruiser/tank or as a high damage dealer with lots of critical hit chance. The best Garen build in LoL depends on what enemies you are facing. If you face lots of CC or already have lots of damage dealers on your team, it's best to build Garen more as a tank. If, however, you don't have much damage dealing potential or don't face heavy crowd control, you may be able to build him primarily as a damage dealer who is only augmented with increased tank.
LoL Garen players will find him to be a confusing character to build out properly. You will see that his build is modified when he is fighting either well-rounded or specialized team comps, meaning you should not follow the same Garen build every game of League of Legends
The most critical items to include in your champion's build are: Stridebreaker, Mortal Reminder, and Youmuu's Ghostblade. Players who included these pieces in their setups had a higher winrate than players who worked towards other builds for Garen. Similarly, if you are playing a mixed enemy team comp, you should really consider grabbing Garen the Sorcery, and Resolve runes. In recent games, he won the largest percentage of his games when equipped with these runes.
