hey guys, i recently purchased Garen and I've been doing great with him! about 10-1/2 kdr every game. Anyways, I need advice on which runes I should get?

Currently, I'm buying ArP Marks, but as for glyphs, seals, and quints, I'm stumped.

So any advice would be appreciated

thanks in advance

As the above poster said, armor penetration, dodge, and cooldown reduction are your friends.

You wouldn't do terrible with hp runes, either. You also have flexibility with your quintessences, in my opinion. Health is good, but so is movement speed. People tend to ignore movement speed, but you need it for Garen.

Someone in these forums made a good arguement for Crit chance over Armour pen due to it improving judgement (spinning attack). Other then that Teague's suggestion is pretty cookie cutter and good for all physical Champs.
