So.... im new to the game.... lvl 6 at about 48 total bot game hours.....

I picked up Garen because thats who i did the tutorial with.

I would like to keep using him until i can decide on a champion that I want to play regularly, so I have been trying different combinations of Runes, Masteries, Spells, and items to work on different play styles....

After playing around a little I think Ive found a good build to tweak.

---------------
Masteries:
I only have 7 mastery points and they are as follows:

Red
3 Brute Force

Green
3 Good Hands
1 Improved Recall

By 30 I would like to have:

Red
3 Brute Force
1 Butcher or Summoner's Wrath
4 Aclarity
4 Sorcery
4 Deadliness
1 Weapon Expertiese
1 Lethality

Green
3 Good Hands
1 Improved Recall
4 Swiftness
4 Greed
---------------
Runes:
Im trying to max attack speed with all rune spots... With 7 spots (3r 2y 2b) im at +4%...
---------------
Spells:

Ghost
Ignite
---------------
Items to get:
In no real order (other than boots first)

Berserker Greves
Phantom Dancer
Guaridian Angel
Youmuu's Ghostblade
---------------
Skills:

If they have a more magic people I get the Q skill first then E then W then R. I max out W, E, and R first the Q for the last few levels.

If they have more melee, I switch Q and E for the first two levels and keep the rest the same.
---------------

I like playing Garen as a pusher and faux-assassin.

The fast attack and high crit cut creeps like butter as well as deal a fair amount of damage to enemy champions. I can either

The big questions are:

1. Is this a viable strategy?
2. Is there something else I should be doing with Garen?
3. Is there a better champion for what I am trying to do?

BONUS QUESTION!!!!!

Is there a program or website to work with champion builds?

leaguecraft is great for champ builds

My advice to you right now is don't worry about viability, worry about learning the game

you dont want attack speed runes as garen.

stick to movement speed, armor penetration, magic resist, cool down, armor, critical strike chance and attack damage.
