Tips Against Garen in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

DDemonJesters says “Better match up than darius for me. Just try to zone him with his Q + movement speed(just try to stay far away) and if he uses q or E go short trade him ”

Ulsur says “He's easy until level 6, pre 6 you'll just keep poking and you'll mostly win trades if you space well enough, he'll usually wait to use his W on your Q3, so you can wait it out or just use it nevertheless, but don't get tempted to tower dive a low health Garen as his W + Q silence can bait you hard and he won't die, so play it carefully and avoid reckless all-ins, after 6 your main goal is to keep his health lower than yours, you have the range advantage with Q and you can keep your distance with E and W, if you're low enough he'll just flash Q to silence you, ignite, and ultimate and there's nothing you can do, so don't get low enough for him to do that, Eclipse rush is the best option for me.”
Shark of Void says “His W makes your short trades useless. Use W to evade his E. Don't fight with him pre lvl 6, just poke. After lvl 6, all in him or don't fight, because his passive is imbalanced.”

Baby_Driver says “Do not get cheesed by his ignite. You win all the all-ins when above 70% hp. Poke him with Q's whenever u can.”

Inziki says “he wins by better healing passive in long fight u can win but u have to use w before his r ”

forlid says “Garen is a very volatile lane. He is very predictable and his trading patterns can be seen from miles away. On the other hand, he statchecks you with his first few backs, and after level 6 you have no free oppotunities to engage as with Ignite he can kill you in seconds. Early lead here is very important as Kraken allows you to duel him with ease. Watch out for his abyssmal scaling, as even if he is behind he can surprise with his damage.”

SVKGuardian says “Just dont get too comfy. Your E doesn't really work against his E and R. You nearly always bait him into using Q and right before he deals damage you can use your E and engage.”
Michael Jaxson | Crit Me Now *WIP* by SVKGuardian | Jax Player
SVKGuardian says “Only suprise he has could be high movement speed or flash. You have E for his engage with Q, but I would rather use w if you have enough time. It gives him more damage and slows enough to make him regret his choice. Also if you hit W first, he can cancel your slow if he uses his Q after, keep that in mind. Later he has high movement speed, you can match his flash with your flash.”
