Don't knock it till you've tried it.







Edit: Are any of these downvotes from people who have actually tried it? I don't think so.

I still max E first for farming and shoving lanes. Besides, it does more damage

It's W first.
Then split points and only level ultimate on lvl 9 15 and 18.

Please learn to garen

E's scalling now scales with levels. Better max Q.

Makes sense.

Q removes slow effects now instead of E, and leveling it up gives it a lower CD. He's saying that Q is more beneficial for countering ganks when people pile slows on you.

Just won a game with an IE Mallet Garen. He did pretty nasty damage while being tough to kill via W and his runes, which he said were pure scaling MR and Armor to take advantage of the 20% bonus.

Sure, with the new changes, Q is less of a "one point wonder" than before. The duration of the speed buff, as well as the duration of the silence now scale with the level of the skill. Also, maxing Q first gives you more damage levels 1-9. Combine all this with the fact that Judgement is less effective than it used to be, and maxing Q becomes even more valuable.

I have only played one game with the new Garen so my experience is limited, but I laned against a fizz and literally took him from 70% to dead at level six with just one Q>R combo.

Ranking up E lowers the CD. Q is a flat 8 seconds at all ranks now (which previously you had to get rank 5 for 8 second CD).
