Keeping him slowed in big fights helps a lot, so any range with a mallet, ashe, etc. Getting armor so he doesn't mow you down with judgement helps a lot. IE if you are tristrani get a wriggles/bloodrazor, mallet, and you can not only do a lot of damage, but you are keeping him there, and if he EVER hits you with judgement, it won't hurt that bad.

How in the world do you manage to counter tank Garen as Malzahar? Aside your ultimate, you're so dead it's not even funny. And your ultimate is rendered useless by a single item that costs merely 1.4k gold and has nice stats for a tank.

DPS Garens fails, so no need to specifically counter those. Tank Garens weakness is their armor penetration - they have none (aside runes) and all their damage is physical. I don't know if your build allows it, but getting over 100 armor isn't hard.

If you are a hardcore squishy, then it's going to be tough. Stay away from him, Garen eats squishies - not imba fast like fed Yi, but he is **** hard to get rid off, once hes on your face.

Stacking armor won't do jack **** against his ult.

If his ult is the only thing I have to worry about, why am I considering him OP again?

actually it does, since he has to get you down to almost nothing before he can ult you anyway.

if you're low enough for Garen's ult to kill you, chances are you're pretty close to dead as is. so yes, get armor and he'll never get you down.

radium's or even just a warden's mail screws him up pretty bad, cuz once he procs a slow (or you activate it as radium's) he wont be hitting anything for a while.
