Really, I can't find a reason for him not having mana. Why? He has nothing to replace it, unlike ninjas, Morde or even the heroes using hp for skills.

No AP ratios is just as original as giving Mundo almost no cooldowns.

I won't elaborate, because there's no need - the lack of mana should be somehow motivated! Now it isn't.

He is based off of Katarina, who also has no resource.

Alright. Why give him mana, exactly?

Seriously,

People need to educate themeselves on champions before they make threads about them.

Try reading Garen's story. A major part of the LoL lore is the war between Noxus and Demacia. Katarina is Noxus' forefront combatant and Garen is Demacia's. They both are soley cooldown based champions.

Are you saying Katarina needs mana too?

I love your reasoning. Oh wait, you have none besides 'Of course'.

Katarina is Katarina. She's got a certain style which is adjusted to that. She's fast action and the low cooldowns + no mana force a certain play style. She's supposed to spam to get enough damage.

Garen is just like any other hero. A typical warrior/paladin, just without a cast heal. His cooldowns are longer than those of Kat's, especially at start. You'd play him pretty much the same way if you had mana - just buying different items and using spells a little less often.

Play both new Kat and Garen before you make suggestions/qqs. Garen was designed to be a fast-action, resource-free champion like Kat. And he is.
