Play Singed instead and do something for your team. You're worse in laning, but wayyyy better in everything else. I was an avid Garen player as well since before the nerfs, I know how you feel.

To answer your question, yes, build Sunfire, Ghostblade, IE, Atma's, etc.

i do not go ad items, i play him as a tank. His ad ratio is ****. I might get a last whisper but thats only just for a bit more damage.

I go merc treads, sunfire, FoN/Thornmail, GA, Frozen mallet, Last whisper/ mr or ar item.

Ugh. Listen to Rocketball and play Singed. Garen is **** nowadays. You're just an ult bot. At least playing aggressive payed off before in early levels. Now you spin and do nothing. Woo.

Also, Singed worse in laning? Youmad?

Garen has always been an ult-bot. The one thing he had was a powerful early game, and he was the least capable character in the game who could take full advantage of it because he has no lategame.

Merc Treads
Yoomus
Infinity Edge
Frozen Mallet (or sunfire and red buff or all 3)
Cleaver
Thirster or starks or whatever.

Although at that point assuming 15 armor pen from marks, 20 from yoomus and 45 reduction from cleaver you have squishies down 80 armor. They probably barely have that much so the 20 reduction from starks is probably not that helpful. Thirster or something else would probably be better.

You will get one silence/spin combo off, and then go down fast. The problem is his scaling with judgement is still too low to cause any significant damage. I've even tried going the CDR route and silencing/spinning more. You do even less damage and they just shrug you off...

I've had decent sucess by using the atmogs build (that being, warmogs first item, then atma's afterward). After that you go for ghostblade, IE and so on and so forth. My manaless runepage has armor and MR in it, combining that with the armor and MR from Courage and the MR from merc treads, and I have a pretty tough champion without investing further in defence stats.

The scaling on the spin isn't that great, unless you can hit multiple people with it. Which you should be doing. You pretty much need to make yourself be a threat by getting enough damage that you can autoattack down a squishy after you're done spinning. Pure tank route won't net any sucess now.
