How it works

  1. You go Full Crit items.

How to play

  1. Wait for your moment to go for a kill. You have big burst thanks to Full Crit, but you are squishy.
  2. Snowball / Mark is very important cooldown for this build. Do not waste it or even wait to hit the enemy at point-blank range to ensure hit (so you follow them, if they Flash).
  3. Enemy team might not check your items right away, you could use that for your advantage to nuke unsuspected enemy.
  4. This build works best if enemy team has squishy champions. If you are against a lot off-tanks/bruisers, this might not be best build.
  5. If you are not doing well, or an enemy team is slightly ahead, you can adapt and buy tank items. Worst case scenario, you can sell everything late game and 'respec' into full tank.
  6. Your ideal combo should be auto (Hail of Blades) - Q - auto - auto + E. Or E, then auto (Hail of Blades) - Q - auto - auto.
  7. If you don't all that fuss and just want to spin, go Conqueror major rune (+ Domination minor) instead.

Tips and Tricks

General
  1. You can use E before taking portal (frost-gate). You will be spinning during travel, damaging everyone on your path. If you are playing Full Crit Garen or Lethality Garen, you will mow them over.
Riot
  1. Garen's regeneration greatly increases if he can avoid receiving damage for several seconds.
  2. Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. For effective trading, try to position such that only the enemy champion is hit.
  3. Garen is only constrained by cooldowns, making items such as Black Cleaver very effective for him.
