Just seeing how you guys like to build Garen. Against a balanced team my current build order is
Level 1 boots
Force of Nature
Haven't tried this build post patch, but I'm sure it still works fine for solo top...
Brut -> ghostblade
If you are dominating phage -> frozen mallet, then tanky, FoN/Sunfire ect
If you are getting knocked out in figths build straight to tanky, FoN/Sunfire
If you feel you are tanky enough grab some more damage items, Bloodthirster, IE, PD, Atmas are all viable on him. I prefer IE, I have read on the forums many people like PD, up to you though.
Sunfire seems likes a poor choice for a last item. The AoE effect is pretty useless by that point and Randiun's is a better +armor item.
Brutalizer is pretty much core for me as well, Ghostblade finds it's way into just about every melee DPSer.
til Days of Blue
Those Dorans going to delay your build by a lot.
Offensive is the best way to build him. I do armor pen marks, strength quints, health per level seals, and MR per level blues. 21/9/0 masteries.
I build him as such.
Dorans Blade x2
Merc Treads/Boots of Swiftness depending on other team comp
Force of Nature (rarely needed)
You will be a whirling dervish of death and despair with this build.
