Hi guys, I'm new and I'm really enjoying playing garen. I was wondering what would be a good garen item build for solo 5v5?

Thanks!

I agree that boots of swiftness are your best bet. he needs the speed.

Sunfire cape is an excellent first item and really helps him farm. I wanna start with Warmogs, but sunfire is just too good offensively.

Instead of warmog you might consider other tanky items with more utility. Aegis is a great overall booster. Frozen Mallet is ok for Garen with a snare and AD as well as just health.

Atmas is very solid for its cost for high health champs like garen. He can use the crit, AD, and armor.

I dont like force of nature due to no health, so I just get Aegis and Negatron. But lategame you could upgrade the negatron.

Follow this build except for...

Drop phantom dancer for a ghost blade. Ghost blade gives you vital stats that garen needs and your dmg isn't gonna come from auto attacks anyhow.

Drop Warmogs for a magic resist item. I usually go with hex drinker if the magic dmg isn't too serious or force of nature if there is 3 magic dmg champs.

Even with just sunfire/frozen mallet you have well over 3k hp and get plenty boosted from atma's.

The mastery in the guide is alright, i'd drop some outta defense tree so you can get the spell pen and armor pen in offense.
