Here is a link to my video that dissects this new rework. I go over everything in the patch then show in game clips of the buff in action.

Please thumbs up if you dont mind helping out a fellow summoner on youtube.
Awesome, liked your video and your strat. Now would you mind linking your guide in the YouTube video if you have a written one? Really like the tanky style build and I am about to try the full AD page I am just looking for more info on items and I imagine I am not alone.

Sweet Digital Blasphemy background btw, love that site.

I'd say his late game got a buff and his early game got a slight nerf (which is fine because his early game was ridiculous while his late game was horrible (see Leblanc)).

He was perfect until the rework and buff. Hes underused and underpowered enough, and i think riot buffed him because of the twist of fate when his ult killed the katarina.Heres my build:
-swiftness boots alacrity
-yoummuus ghostblade
-randuins
-warmogs
-infinity edge
-atmas Impaler

Garens a tank, I see no point buying any ad on him. He has natural damage, and he scales off defense more than ad. Heres my build:
-mercury treds
-warmogs
-sunfire cape
-randuins omen
-spirit visage
-Locket of the iron solari

Garen should be built like a bruiser most of the time, but if you have no other tank in the team you should build really tanky. Just because garen is easy to play, doesnt mean hes a "noob".

Albert you're having a conversation with yourself in a 2 year old thread.
