I personally like for my Garen to have a Triforce with his Infinity Edge, for that Decisive Strike nuke. Youmuus is still a good item though. I usually build warmogs and then decide whether it is more necessary to have a Randuins or Force of nature. Usually decide on Randuins, since the health makes it harder to get nuked, and the armor and passive are just wonderful for fighting ADCs. Not to mention the Actives of Youmuus and Randuins synergize exceptionally well for chasing.

I'd rather go:
Merc Treads
Atma's
Sunfire
Force of Nature
Trinity Force
Infinity Edge

If you have a force of nature, then the movement speed will let you sub out the boots of swiftness for a phantom dancer. Between your Q and the ghostblade you should be able to chase people just fine.

Haha Garen makes solo laners hug turrets dude. Boots 3 pots and Decisive Strike for lane dominance.

I've been devising a build for garen that provides utility even later in the game. This is a build I've only tried a few times, but have gained moderate success with.

Boots of Choice + 3 Pots -> Brutalizer -> Aegis -> Infinity Edge and Heart of Gold, depending on how well you do -> Youmuu's Ghostblade -> Locket of the Iron Solari/Randuins -> Atma's Impaler/Maw of Malmortius.

Summed up:
Aegis
Boots you want
Youmuu's Ghostblade
Infinity Edge
Locket/Randuins
Atma's/Maw

This build is relatively flexible, and has the side effect of being somewhat cheap if you go Locket/Atma's. Aegis provides everyone with the aura, giving your support a free spot for something like wards, because supports like having spots since they only tend to get 5 of them. The locket's shield can save allies from DoT's and the like, even if it looks negligible on your large health bar. The rest is standard garen.

Sorry folks, have to jump in on this and say, WTF???

IonDragonX and Ruka Urushibara, you both are wasting the potential of Atma's.

Ion, you have only 1 item that gives health, not counting the Trinity Force as the amount is minor, thus making your Atma's inexcusably inefficient.

Ruka, your build literally only has 1 item that gives bonus health, again, wasting the Atma's potential.

My build is as follows:

Warmog's
Frozen Mallet
Atma's
Sunfire Cape
Youmuu's
Ionian Boots of Lucidity.

This build gives me 2420 bonus health, which, with Garen's Base health at level 18 of 2183, equals a total of 69 damage from Atma's.

Ruka gets 300/350 bonus health from items, meaning that Atma's only gives 37.25/38 damage, less than a B.F.Sword for more than double the cost.

Ion gets 700 bonus health, for a total of 43.25 damage from Atma's, a mere 1.75 less than a B.F.Sword, again, for more than double the cost.

If you get Atma's, please make it worthwhile?
