      • It will affect structures.
        • It will go through Counter Strike.png dodge.
        • It will be mitigated if the enhanced attack is Aegis Protection.png blocked or Riposte.png parried.
        • It will be consumed if the enhanced attack Blind icon misses
          • In all cases above the target will still be silenced.
  • Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Spell shields will block the enhanced attack.

Additional Information:

  • Decisive Strike has no cast time and does not interrupt Garen's previous orders.
    • The on-hit effect and the bonus movement speed are independent (Garen can silence his target and the bonus movement speed will remain, duration permitting)

Courage old

Passive: Garen's bonus armor and magic resistance are increased by 20%.

  • Courage's active is both a defensive and a utility self-buff.

Additional Information:

  • Courage has no cast time and does not interrupt Garen's previous orders.
  • Courage's passive bonus resistances are not lost while it is on cooldown.
    • The bonus resistances are calculated after reductions are considered.
      • If the bonus value is inferior to the amount reduced Garen will be considered as having no bonus resistances and thus will not get any from Courage's passive.
  • Courage's active does not reduce true damage.


Judgment
RANGE: 300
COOLDOWN: 13 / 12 / 11 / 10 / 9
Judgment old

Active: Garen rapidly spins his sword around his body for 3 seconds, losing the ability to basic attack but dealing physical damage each second to enemies within range for the duration, increased by 33.3% against enemy champions and monsters.

「 Physical Damage Per Second: 7.5 / 16.875 / 26.25 / 35.625 / 45 (+ 26.25 / 30 / 33.75 / 37.5 / 41.25% AD 」「 Total Physical Damage: 45 / 101.25 / 157.5 / 213.75 / 270 (+ 157.5 / 180 / 202.5 / 225 / 247.5% AD 」

「 Empowered Damage Per Second: 10 / 22.5 / 35 / 47.5 / 60 (+ 35 / 40 / 45 / 50 / 55% AD 」「 Total Empowered Damage: 60 / 135 / 210 / 285 / 360 (+ 210 / 240 / 270 / 300 / 330% AD) 」

Garen ignores unit collision while spinning, but moves 20% slower when traveling through minions.

Judgment can Critical strike icon critically strike, dealing 50% AD (+ bonus critical damage) bonus damage.

After 1 second, Garen can reactivate Judgment to cancel it immediately.

Ability Details
Judgment is a point-blank, area-of-effect ability.

Additional Information:

  • Judgment is not a channeled ability so crowd control effects will not interrupting.
    • Silencing Garen will prevent him from reactivating it early.
  • Garen will benefit from Decisive Strike.png Decisive Strike's slow removal and bonus movement speed while Judgment is active.
    • He will not be able to apply its on-hit silence or bonus damage since he cannot basic attack over Judgment's duration.
  • Garen may cast Demacian Justice.png Demacian Justice while Judgment is active but it will stop ticking if so.
  • Judgment can Critical strike icon critically strike but only the AD ratio (and not the base damage) is used when calculating the bonus damage.
    • Judgment suffers a 50% critical strike damage penalty for a total 150% Critical strike icon critical strike ratio (down from 200) increased to 200% with Infinity Edge item.png Infinity Edge (down from 250)
  • Even though Judgment lasts for 3 seconds the first tick of damage will be applied at the moment of casting, with 5 more ticks every 0.5 seconds afterwards.
    • The last tick does not deal damage.
  • Garen will still be slowed when traveling through minions even if he is ignoring unit collision from other sources (Ghost.png Ghost, Phantom Dancer item.png Phantom Dancer)
