Quite tanky but... how do I get so much kills?

First of all, this is my first ever guide, so I hope I don't make many mistakes. I've been playing Garen for years and, if I'm able to upload some pic, I'll show you my record with him. Trust me, this works, never did a bad game with this build. Garen is an awesome champ in terms of Health, Armor and AP Armor. The objective in this build is to take those good points to their best. You won't die but, you will kill a lot! They can't take you down; Garen has great health recovery, defense and ap defense and you are making it better with Spirit Visage and Sunfire Cape. This two are making you almost impossible to kill, also Sunfire Cape will deal dmg/sec to any enemy around so they're dying while they try to kill you. Also, if they start killing your endless HP, Malmortius will start to work and you will kill the enemies faster. Also you have that lifesaver last shield. Boots of Swiftness are great for chasing and escaping... I mean, when they are five on you, you won't do a penta but, they won't kill you neither. This was my last game with Garen, check it out: https://38.media.tumblr.com/f03dea4db7fd49dc752591872761357d/tumblr_ni3w2lzL3X1t4zx1io2_1280.png And this are my matches with Garen... as you can say, your team may win or loose the game but you will always do an awesome job and take the top alone! https://38.media.tumblr.com/32a00edc1393476ccc281407c5513dc5/tumblr_ni3w2lzL3X1t4zx1io1_1280.png

Deffensive early... whatever you want later

I always start with E an skill which is usefull in every case (against solotop or 2 top). It gives you great damage in area so you can farm easily and also scare your enemies. This is the most important skill for me. After you reach lvl 6 you will easily kill 1v1 with Q, E, R and they won't kill you cause of your build and your W.

Teleport is a musthave

You may also prefer Ignite or Ghost over the ones above but; Teleport is MUSTHAVE for Garen top. Also gives you the chance to help in every lane and team fight easily and fast. Flash is great but, I only use it cause, most of my enemies use Flash... so whenever they're escaping with flash, I flash too. Also great for escape too, ofc. Garen has a great Q with gives speed and silence an enemy, so maybe, instead of flash you prefer exhaust which can make killing easily and also, will help your jungler partner if you Exhaust the enemy during a gank.

The secret...

I think this is the secret of the unstopable Garen. Runes are not fully defensive, in truth they're pretty ofensive. This + your W + your build will make all your stats pretty high and you almost immortal. With your damage and tanky way of life they will only take you down by focusing on you (more than 3 enemies).

This masteries are old

I'll try to put a picture of the current masteries I use with Garen. And to be honest, I used to play 0/30/0 but I changed to 9/21 for more playability. And this are my masteries now: https://38.media.tumblr.com/0a91bc08dcdacaaa13cf902acb1aa4d4/tumblr_ni3w9cCPru1t4zx1io1_1280.png If anyone likes this build, I can upload my Top Offensive masteries too. Hope you enjoyed it!
