Short answer: You don't.
Long answer: You doooooon't!

No but seriously DPS is just not viable, especially with the latest nerf you're going to get annihilated mid-game. If you want to make him DPS wait until Riot figures out what the hell they want to do with him (though it might take a while because since the nerf I haven't seen a single Garen QQ thread so they've bought themselves some time).

Sunfire stacking is for those that don't use skill though I do agree that one sunfire works brilliantly for insta-gibbing those minion waves and it gives great HP and armor.

I agree with sunfires. Let's get this straight

Sunfire garen is dps garen.

AD scales so horribly with him, and crit chance is a joke for him honestly to build up his E. Sunfire resolves this issue.

I played dps garen a lot when he first came out and liked him.
I did moderately well, I didnt get annihilated or anything.
I can do better with any other melee dps character.
I can do equally well with eve.

Garen just doesnt have the skills to be a dps character, hence he's eve tier when played dps, because his spells don't fit the roll despite what seems like interesting theory.

Quoting for emphasis.
