The recent s3 changes make this item on most junglers a most have. The item itself helps you increase your damage,but you will be needing EVERY single heal pot that you can get.
Red will leave you on low hp,but after you reach lvl 2 it'll be a little bit better.
You'll notice that you will regain some HP and get full health after using 2/3 health pots.
I usually go back after lvl 5/6 or after 1/2 succesfully executed ganks. If you received alot of damage while attempting a gank feel free to go back. Garen can however also countergank quite efficiently.
(You'll need this item every game. So get it <3)
(Handy tenacity and is really similar to Randuin's omen. You can replace this for randuin's omen,but be sure to change your shoes to mercury's if you do so)
(This one if you want alot of damage early&late. Still you'll suffer from some tankiness loss if you were to take this item)x
(Described in late game)
(I prefer ninja tabi's since I'll be buying spirit for the extra tenacity and it reduces bruisers/ad carries damage significantly,I just love that word ^^)
Note that you won't be having to buy all of these items. These are just items that I consider to be more viable then other items.
You're frequently ganking while still clearing your jungle. You will have your hands full with this and focusing on objectives like dragon/blue/red& getting your items build up and ready for use.
Finishing your build with items like:
(Gives armor+MR+ Demacian insurance. Just to be sure.)
(If not bought mid game you can still build it here like the rest)
(Helps against kiters and ad carry who rely on speed like Cait,varus,vayne)
(Garen's build include more armor then MR so this item is a blessing for you and your team :>)
(like the Infinity edge,you can still build it late if that's what you want)
( Almost every garen gets this item,but I often get it when my team lacks alot of cc. Also the extra HP and damage+Awesome passive come in quite handy)
You are here to be the teams leader.Not mentally,but physically. You charge infront of your team,engage and spin to shred their teams armor. Silence ap casters and punish those who dare to near your ad carry. With 5k HP and a great amount of armor+MR you'll terrorize the people who consider garen bad late game. You're not a tank that will CC the team AOE like amumu or fling people till they RQ,but you make it so your team can do significantly more damage while doing a lot on your own.
The amount of tankiness and your damage dealing capability all depends on which route of items you're going to take.
You'll learn what you are while playing several games of garen. Garen jungle just adds the tasks of a jungler.
Counter jungling(You should already know how to do it)
Silence+spin and take his jungle. This guy won't do you any harm early game(Gets tanky late game)
DEMACIA VS DEMACIA? Well,you can win this fight 1v1. If he uses his ulti then he's a dead man walking :D.
You can counter jungle him,but bringing forget about killing him. He'll just Q and steal your movement speed to add it to his own :(.
You can counter jungle him,but he'll snare+Knock you up untill his team arrives to obliterate you.
Never fought him 1 on 1 inside his jungle.Still I think garen deals more damage early game then him.
This guy is bothersome to most junglers,but garen doesn't care. Just silence and spin to win (He can absorb silence,but hohoho to spin.)
Oh,dear god I hate olaf... You can counterjungle him at lvl 1/2,but after he lvls up certain skills he'll just slow and slam you with his true damage.Counter jungle with care.
One of those champions that you see on top and not that often in jungle.
You can beat him.
Will just gank 24/7 after reaching lvl 3 ~.~ so yea just enter her jungle and clear everything.
She's tanky. Really,really tanky :s. Besides that go ahead and counter jungle.
Similar jungler as garen. Still spin would be a pain to her aswell. This can be either.
Don't chase him.
Mhh..Trundle.. So he saps your ad which deals quite alot of damage.. And then makes himself increase in attack speed,movement speed and also get cc reduction. and Slows you by putting a huge pillar infront of you -.-..
Don't counter jungle trundle. You can try it,but he's really one of those champs you just don't want to try it against.
Shaco will probably wait untill you get low hp and just strike. Ward your own jungle if you're up against this one,because it's likely that he'll be doing it :S
You can beat him.
You can beat him,but he'll slow you.
Same as with nasus.
You can beat him early and when he hasn't snowballed.
You can beat him early,mid,late.
Not sure about khazix. Just know he's a bother to have fed while being ad carry :>
True damage is bothersome,but manageable early game.
Ha.You can beat him.
2 garens jungle is one of the seven signs of the apocalypse. Two spins,2 silences,but one demacian stands above. Are you that demacian?
She deals a lot of damage early game,but you're not melee like olaf/jax/nocturne so her repel won't be triggered while spinning.
Silence his drain(You can't outdamage his drain)
Spin to win.
Just don't be kited by his knife and you'll be fine.
You can counter jungle diana.
This guy will be another one of those who will come on top.
Cho'gath and garen will both use their ulti's at the end to either "Garen:Max damage/ Cho'gath an extra stack"
Just kill him(He's really weak :D).
