Guide to Synergizing Garen and Master Yi

Tips for Playing as Garen with Master Yi

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.

Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. For effective trading, try to position such that only the enemy champion is hit.

Advice to Understand How Master Yi Will Play

Wuju Style is very strong early for last hitting minions.

If you're in a lane against ranged players, leveling up Meditate can allow you to stay in the lane longer and gain levels faster than they will.

Try using Alpha Strike on a minion in front of an enemy champion so you are placed at a safe distance at the end of the spell.
