Yep that is why he was 1st pick in ranked games before his nerf and was a TIER 1 offtank.

Might i remind you his judgement could take 250~ hp at level one?
He couldn't be slowed?
He had 35% Damage reduction on 1st level of courage and a hell of a more MR/AR per courage level.

The biggest point is that he was FINE, now his damage and survivability got nerfed hard and the slow reduction instead of slow immunity is the thing that crushes him in my eyes.

He WAS my main until judgement was untouched, now he is good only early and can be good mid if fed. He is not viable compared to other champs Renekton, Jarvan, Mundo are better for the tanky dpsers. He lacks utility and his late is terrible.

Sure before his judgement and courage got nerfed he was pretty nice champion, best offtank but now RIOT wants to make him some freaking dps champ that he would never be.

If u play smart with garen u cant die. Remember to play him like a tank with sunfire on teamfight ur amazing, ur ulti is obviously nice to have kills.With randuin omens + A skill (my keyboard is an azerty) its very hard to follow u. He definatly is viable u just have to play with him more than 50games ^^ to see that hes one of the best character in the game. And about other better tanky dpsers jarvan isnt renekton isnt and mundo is idd .. why? cuz he is ****ing op.If u play this kind of character it means that ur a noob, so funny to see mundo,vlad or teemo players claming to be pro.Even my turtle can play them.
