Guide to Countering Garen as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Garen

Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.

Landing Crescent Strike is critically important, but don't be afraid to miss. The cooldown is short and the mana cost is low.

Use Moonfall and Lunar Rush to stay on targets and activate Moonsilver Blade for extra damage.

Advice to Win Against Garen

Stack armor items to lower the large amount of physical damage that Garen deals out.

Be careful about attacking Garen in brush. It often will lead to taking full damage from Judgment.

Try to run away from Garen as your health gets lower, as he can execute you quickly with Demacian Justice.

Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. If getting out of its radius isn't possible, move through allied minions to reduce damage taken.
