So if Garen counters most melee range top laners, what's the point?

Teemo is very good against Garen. That is all.

Vi is very good against garen, you can easily win trades after level 2 thanks to your shield and Q, also E can be used to stop his passive. Q also makes sure you can catch up to him. W allows you to combat his HP bloat later on.

^Not really.

Having laned against Vi as Garen, she's even more predictable than he is with her Q, has less sustain, and will lose most early trades.

Again, not asking about them.

Askin' bout bruisers.


Vlad
Elise
Jayce
NIdalee
Lulu (rare)

All of these champs are ranged and generally build bruiser


Please tell me how Vlad can beat Garen during laning phase.


Q/E while walking back.

Treat him like Singed. Cloth 5 wiht a lot better sustain means you're gonna come out on the long run, unless he goes 13 hp pots or hidese in the bush frequently.

He can't zone you forever without atking free damage anyway. He can't kill you either since you'll have pool for most of his stuff (which you probably won't use anyway, since it's pointless)

He can't even really stand up to you before a certain level, as he's just too damn slow you catch up to you if you run MS quints (even if he himself runs MS quints as well) even with Garen Q, as he needs 2-3 levels in it before he becomes, RUN REALLY FAST.

I've usually done well against Garen as Taric, Irelia, and Renekton

I actually love going against Garen because he's become, in my opinion, the most predictable champion in the game. You pretty much know exactly what they are gonna do and therefore know how to defend against.

I don't think he's "become" that, I think he's always been like that.

Q

E

R when low enough

Ignite somewhere in between

W if they fight back.
