Tips for Playing as Garen against Kayle

Garen's regeneration greatly increases if he can avoid receiving damage for several seconds.

Garen is only constrained by cooldowns, making items such as Black Cleaver very effective for him.

Advice to Win Against Kayle

Kayle starts the game as a weaker melee champion. Try to put her behind before she ascends to her ranged form.
