Guide to Countering Garen

  • Most of Garen's damage is physical, so stack armor to prevent taking damage.
  • His Q will cleanse himself of all slows. Garen counters a lot of soft CC; however, he is still vulnerable to hard CC.
  • Avoid fighting Garen alone because Judgement will deal maximum damage to 1 target.
