There's a champion called darius that is basically garen on steroids. his ulti does the same amount of damage except its true dmg and refreshable. His passive is also 10x better

His W already gives him Tenacity, so I don't see how going swiftness boots or even moba boots in certain situations is a bad idea. Catching targets with the extra MS is a valuable asset.

No crowd control. Mediocre damage when you build anything armor related. Single target damage at that. What is the problem again?

Oh hai pubtrash , Still pwning noobs I see?


On another note , you should prefer Merc threads over boots of swiftness. Also try to avoid sunfire cape since it offers nothing to you.

If garen is only building tanky he wont have any damage aside from his ult. As long as you keep him away from your primary sources of damage (your ap/ad carry) then he's not much of a threat.

I'd say Darius is overall better but you can't call him Garen 2.0. Garen's job is to tank and dive a bunch and soak up dmg and cc, don't forget that his w gives cc reduction now.
