I know theres a few out there that were advocating for Garen buffs, so obviously we gotta see what these buffs are but it seems they went in a completely different way in buffing Garen. Most people were advocating for scaling damage. So they're giving tank and utility buffs, if this can make Garen more baseline tanky so Garen can focus more on damage and less on actual tank items, this could indirectly solve some of Garens lack of scaling problems. We'll have to see though, but I look forward to seeing what they are
Decisive Strike movement speed duration increased to 4 seconds from 3 seconds
Judgment cooldown reduced to 13/12/11/10/9 seconds from 14/13/12/11/10 seconds
Courage maximum armor and magic resistance now 25 at all ranks from 5/10/15/20/25
Okay so I like this, the key one here is the Courage letting you get the full benefit at rank 1, so it's a pretty easy decision to put one point in that and rank up DS/Judgement. The extra second will come in handy.
And they said they werent buffing his damage but they lowered the cooldown on Judgement? Sounds like a damage buff to me, but whatevs not gonna complain
