Don't get a Madreds, his attack speed is waay too slow.

None of garens abilities should crit anymore, that was fixed in a patch some weeks ago.

And tank garen ftw, DPS garens should just hang themselves and i'm dead serious.

Ehh, I prefer a mixture Garen, 21/8/1 (ghost)

Levi
Swiftness
Frozen Mallet
Ghostblade
Inifinity

Good tanking early game when his DPS is naturally high,
Good dps late game after building tank items.

Leviathan is good, but why get frozen mallet?

Judgement doesn't proc it and woohoo, you're gonna auto attack them to death?


Your combo, is always decisive strike, judgement, ult. I don't find having frozen mallet to be useful especially for the tremendous cost it has.

Also ghostblade i tried, but its too much dps and not enogh survivability.

Tank garen works because your job is to get into the enemy back line and silence/judgement their squishies. Later in the game you need the infinity edge to make sure your dmg is still high.

DPS garen will die instantly if he's in the middle of the fight and not have time to expend his dmg potential.

Tank Garen is a ****ty build because Garen is a ****ty tank. He can't fill a tank's job at all.

Yes, you need to build survability on melee carries. Yes, we've all known this for years. That doesn't turn all melee carries into tanks.

Frozen mallet is for the team and for the health. Late game no Garen has the DPS to simply pop a decisive strike, judgement, ult and kill someone, especially if they are somewhat tanky. Garen is a team dependent champion and with frozen mallet you can slow them so your team can hurt them, then nuke them for the killing blow, giving him more HP from leviathan. My build is a combo build dependent on helping your team, and balancing DPS and Tank. Just my build though, and I prefer 3s btw in case your wondering.
