By being one of many champions who can disengage from him silencing/spinning and then beating his face in because he's useless without both of those.

And even if you aren't, kite his spin through minions.

And then what? You hit him a few times, he goes and sits in the bush and regens where you can't touch him there without dieing.

What if he just sits in between the minions waiting? If you go to last hit you'll be too close to kite him. If you don't last hit you lose by default.

This post has quite a substantial argument. I guess i'll never play Garen again out of respect for you.

Why in the world they would nerf Garen like this is beyond me. Have you gone completely mad, Riot? If anything, Garen needs some minor buffs before he's considered a strong pick.

However, I trust that you will revert these changes, since they are not final. Also, I do like your vision of Garen in the future:



"My vision for Garen is that he is a relatively low mobility fighter (unchanged) with low combat ranges (unchanged) who a) is more or less immune to poke damage, b) inflicts immense damage to anyone within his reach, and c) if forced out of a fight but not killed, will rapidly regenerate health to return to the fray for cleanup duty."

I am a diamond player who used to play garen, but I stopped playing garen since platinum because he is easily countered with ranged champion, so I play volibear top, just like you. Volibear has better sustain and lesser counters in my opinion. In fact, 99% of your opponents will think you want to jungle when they see a volibear. I like volibear


Garen is my 2nd most played champs. In fact, I only played garen when I was gold/low plat, then I switched to volibear. If volibear is picked or banned, which rarely happens, then I would go garen/xin top.

ok... ima late 3 season player so i never played the REAL garen but he is my favorite champ... after reading this i feel like its an insult to his very name... he's not a solid pick (though i still play him) and this explains why... man i just wish i get to play the real him before i get tired of waiting....
