ideal garen runes?
 
my rune page for garen is as follows

red armorpen
yellow armor
blue MR/level

but i cant decide what quints to use
its between armorpen, flat HP, and movespeed

just need a little insight, what would give the best early game?
what would "garen"tee first blood?

Flat AD Quints and Reds, for early game domination.

flat arp quints and reds, if you're going solo top your opponent is going to have more than 30 armor so you will be widdling that down to a very low amount (if not dealing true damage) with 25 from runes and 6 from masteries.

It depends but I like MS for ranged and flat HP for pretty much anything else.

Armor pen is okay too but typically top lanes will just stack ridiculous armor anyway.

I prefer armor pen on garen

A higher percentage of an already low number, is only a slightly less low number.

Early game, AD scales better.

Late game, AR pen does.

Early game is where Garen shines, and establishes his dominance and bullies people out of lane. Try a game vs bots and compare the damage difference levels 1-4 yourself. AD is superior.

Garen becomes an on demand silence, soak, and tank killer late game with his Ulti. He doesn't need armor pen for any of that.

Don't neglect AD, but realize that most solo tops aren't dumb enough to fight garen without armor.

Short answer is that you either go all-in for armor pen and spend your early game winning back the AD you neglected, or you go for a mix.

For quints take movespeed, garen is really slow even with boots so the boost helps you close the gap and escape
