So why do people think Garen loses this lane? Especially if he's built very tanky with armor pen+ tankyness from masteries and runes --- Specs: [Intel i5 3570k] [16GB DDR3] [GA-Z77X-UD3H] [CM Hyper 212+] [GTX 560ti]
I beat Garen every time as Darius. Usually because they don't realize that as a hardcore Garen player I know the secret to Garen. --- "I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind." -- Ecclesiastes 1:14
This lane will even out a bit when the nerf to Garen's ridiculous free armour goes live. As it stands Darius only has an advantage like, levels 1-2. --- You have fought well, giant clam. Prepare to be vanquished! Contacts in Profile

You mean keep poke on him to keep his passive down and aa through his spin?
It's not much of a secret.
The biggest thing to shutting down Garen is keeping bush control. If he can't pop out and Q you then you're winning against him. Keeping his passive down isn't 100% possible with a lot of top laners, the biggest threat to someone opposing Garen is his Q. --- [http://animebot.everyboty.net/pix/866.jpg] [http://i.imgur.com/xx0hSNV.png] PSN/360: Maximal769
