Guide to Countering Garen as Sivir

Tips for Playing as Sivir against Garen

Try saving Spell Shield for enemy abilities that can disable you such as stuns and roots.

Ricochet resets Sivir's basic attack timer on activation, so activating this immediately after landing a normal basic attack will maximize damage output.

Sivir's Boomerang Blade returns to her after reaching the max range, so you can shift position to hit enemies who would otherwise have evaded it.

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.
