Best comps for Garen



  • 7 InfiniTeam
  • 3 Sureshot
  • 2 Defender

Top team in this competition:

1-Pantheon has the Heart trait in common with Lee Sin and the InfiniTeam trait with his pals Shen and Lucian, which enables him to inflict greater damage.

2-Shen would share the Defender trait with Garen and the InfiniTeam trait with Lucian and Pantheon, enabling them to have double portals.

3-Lucian gets added to the InfiniTeam as a member.

4-Samira, who possesses both the Sureshot and Ace traits, would be the primary damage dealer.

5-Due to the fact that he and Samira both possess the InfiniTeam and Sureshot traits, Ultimate Ezreal is a really powerful and expensive option.

6-Because he possesses the InfiniTeam trait, Twisted Fate is a significant source of damage because he can deal a lot of damage with his cards.

7-Garen's Defender attribute makes him a potent frontline.

8-As the third member of Sureshot and the seventh member of InfiniTeam, Sivir is an essential choice for your combo.



  • 5 Mecha: Prime
  • 3 Threat
  • 2 Defender
  • 1 Ace

The goal of this quick level 8 reroll is to level up Wukong and Draven before they reach high levels. followed by an emphasis on Prime champions.

Top team in this competition:

1-Rammus is a tank with the ability to knock up a whole circle of enemies with his passive, lowering their attack damage. He is an extremely effective member of the Threat trait as a result.

2-Morgana is a fantastic choice for the squad since she will bring significant crowd control and do some amazing damage.

3-Another threat member with a high damage output and high damage resistance is Aatrox.

4-Your primary damage dealer and frontline will be Leona. Wukong and Jax will give her a lot more health when she consumes them.

3-The fifth Gadgeteen member, Nunu, will provide you two more empowered items in addition to doing a lot of damage to the adversary.
