I honestly can't tell whether you are being sarcastic, trying to troll us or just being plain stupid.

ANYWAYS, Garen looks like like my type of champ. I really hope he costs 1350 or 450, 3150 at worst.

i'm assuming he'll be 3150 like katarina cuz they're rivals and all. plus no mana or health cost for his abilities is a huge advantage over other champs which would warrant a higher cost

'Q. What will Garen cost? A. He is the Ashe of meele, this should hint at what he might cost but I do not know the exact cost.'

However, given that information, I am still greatly excited to try this hero out. He seems like quite a bit of fun, not to mention the attention to detail on his model.

Amazing work, Riot.
Well, you realize that hon hero was directly taken from dota, right? I believe he was Axe in dota, and while Garen's ult seems similar to Axe's, I think that's the only ability that is. His whirlwind seems very similar to Juggernaut's bladestorm, but most of the abilities in the game were inspired by dota abilities, like badage toss = hookshot. A lot of times they didn't even try to hide this fact, blood boil = bloodlust and starcall = starfall if I am not mistaken. Anyway, taking a couple of his abilities from other games isn't a problem in my book.

Not that a good portion of dota abilies weren't just abilities that the standard WC3 heroes already had. All they changed for lich was his ult.

3150 or 6300 is a must cost for this champ, 450-1350 seems far too low taking note that he does seem like an easy champ, Riot might make him 3150 to try and synch him to his arch rival/nemesis katarina (but i agree with one of the earlier posts if kat and garen fought garen would come out on top, but i cant tell for cirtain for i do not fully understand him. ^^ btw very nice job Riot and news of the skins and an aprox date of release would be nice.

There is no way in hell kat could fight this guy and win... She starts spinning... Silence. He shield himself, beats her to pulp and finish her off with his ult when she tries to run.

I don't like the boysband face.
He needs a helmet to cover that stud face.

I suggest the Templare style helm.
