Guide to Countering Garen as Fizz

Tips for Playing as Fizz against Garen

Fizz's spells scale off Ability Power - consider getting items like Zhonya's Hourglass or Banshee's Veil against teams that have high burst threat - and items like Lich Bane or Rabadon's Deathcap if you think you can survive without the Health.

Since Fizz can move through units, find opportunities in lane to walk through minions and apply Seastone Trident's passive - following it up with the ability's active attack after a few seconds.

Fizz's ultimate ability, Chum the Waters, can be aimed at an enemy or towards the area where you think they'll be going.

Advice to Win Against Garen

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

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.

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