Garen, the pride of the Demacian military and the leader of the Dauntless Vanguard, returned from this battle breathless for the first time in his career, though some speculate this was due to reasons other than exhaustion. The plausibility of these rumors was bolstered when, in every instance thereafter, Garen seized the opportunity to encounter the Blade Mistress again. A paragon of Demacian ethic, Garen never entertained such allegations, for he knew others couldn't understand. Even simply the pursuit of a worthy opponent on the battlefield is, to a true warrior, the reason to rise each morning. The promise of one, particularly one so beautifully and diametrically opposed, is the validation of his existence.
"The most effective way to kill an opponent is to slice through the man next to him."
- Garen, on front line strategy
Garen's speed is increased for the next several seconds, and his next attack deals bonus damage and silences the enemy target.
Passive: Garen permanently gains additional magic resistance and armor for each enemy unit he kills.
Active: Garen is surrounded by a defensive shield that reduces all incoming damage for the next few seconds.
Garen spins in a whirlwind with his blade for several seconds, dealing damage to all nearby enemies.
Garen brings down Demacian Justice on his opponent, dealing massive amounts of damage, plus additional damage for health his opponent has already lost.
Garen rapidly regenerates health if he is out of combat for several seconds.
*Because Garen has still not been released, the icons and skills are still subject to change. Garen will be released on April 22nd of 2010.
- Garen is the second champion in League of Legends that does not rely on mana, energy, or health... Instead, his skills are entirely cooldown based like Katarina. It's also important to note that Garen and Katarina are both from Noxus and are eachother's nemesis.
