WTF, why is my Garen building Beserker Greaves, it makes no sense!!11113111!
Hello reddit, this is riste, the Jimmy-Fallon-looking-alike, Garen main with over 7 Million Champion Mastery Points and is currently Diamond 1 on the North American server with Garen. Today, I'd like to educate the masses about the often-common phenomenon as to why your Garen built Beserker Greaves and using every single available ping (200+) over the course of a 20 minute plus ping is not aiding your team or the Garen who built them.
Ever since Garen's rework in late Season 9, Garen's E - Judgment now allows him to gain Bonus spins over the course of three seconds depending on much Attack Speed he has gained from Champion Levels and Items. Garen starts the game with Seven spins, but can often end games with 12-13 depending on what items he has built. With Trinity Force, it's entirely feasible to end games with 15 as of this current patch. For every 25% AS that Garen gains over the course of time, he gains one spin.
Why do more spins matter for Garen?
As many of you know, each of Garen's spins apply a stack of Conqueror, meaning that if Garen is hitting a target with a spin with a higher frequency of hits, he stacks the rune faster, thus allowing the ability to do more damage. The most overlooked property of this spin additionally is that when Garen lands six successful spins against his target, he reduces that said target's armor by 25%, which is the exact reduction that Black Cleaver provides. If Garen builds BC as well, that number stacks multiplicatively to create an approximate 42% total Armor Reduction which is extremely enabling for your team's physical damage.
If those six spins are applied faster over the course of three seconds, that means that Garen has a chance to apply that debuff faster too, and potentially against more targets. Therefore, we can already see the significance of Garen investing in Attack Speed.
Enter Beserker Greaves
-45 Movespeed -35% Attack Speed
If a Garen player purchases Beserker Greaves with his lead by Level 7, he will have 9 spins at that point compared to his initial 7. That is a staggering difference in DPS and as a toplaner who rushes Tier 2 boots, he can often press his advantage by moving faster and being able to stay on top of his target. Garen's Q movement speed duration was even nerfed last year because of how effective this strategy was, and as a result, Garen players are more dependent on rushing Tier 2 boots no... keep reading on reddit ➡
Someone is selling two-tone boots with "Allocates Heartseeker", and I cannot for the life of me figure out how he's done it. They aren't corrupted, just regular two-tone boots with a passive allocation as an enchant, as well as a lab enchant - https://www.pathofexile.com/trade/search/Ritual/7XnmEV2f5
I called L.L. Bean to arrange shipping of my Bean boots to them for a re sole. This is a paid service and I assumed open to anyone willing to pay for it. I was told I would need proof of purchase to qualify for this service. I bought them in like new condition on eBay years ago and have finally worn through the sole. She even told me their policy was to prevent people from re-soling "goodwill and flea market boots". But that seems insane to me since it's a paid service that ONLY they can provide! I couldn't believe what I was hearing.
Side note, I went to return a poor fitting jacket within their return window and they did a full court press guilt trip. I have been a loyal customer for decades, but after these two recent interactions L.L. Bean is dead to me.
Edit: to all you saying "Go to a cobbler", these aren't that kind of boots. These are the classic Maine Hunting Shoe and the entire lower has to be replaced at the factory with a new one. You can't just glue a vibram sole on.
Also, people are conflating this situation with people abusing the return policy. This isn't a return or an exchange. The way I see it, this is like the Toyota dealer refusing to service my Corolla because I bought it at carmax. Absolutely bats**t crazy anti customer policy.
But I feel really nervous, I've never considered myself smart or tech savvy, but friends have told me I'm good at problem solving and researching and I should look into programming\coding. While I'm not tech savvy, I do love tech and am fascinated by what goes on behind the scenes. I have this feeling like I'll be good at it but I also feel like 24 weeks isn't enough time to teach somone like me. I downloaded Python and started my education right away, but are there any other steps I can take now, before school starts in March, that can get me a little boost? Or titles to some books I can read before classes?
And thanks you! to this sub, for getting me this far. I'll definitely won't forget you guys\gals and will be back with progress.
This is a huge step for me. I’m from a small town in Louisiana. Everyone knows everyone and if any of those people found out you’re gay, then that’s it. I’ve never told anyone. But, I was blessed enough to not lose my job during the pandemic. I saved up as much as I could and I did it. I escaped the small town cliche. My family and I moved to a remote island off the coast of Rhode Island only accessible by ferry.
I’ve never complimented another guy out of fear that someone would know I was gay. Any time I get the idea, I immediately picture myself getting attacked by someone who overhears, or is offended. But now that I moved, now that I can be myself, I’m gonna do it.
There’s this guy who works on the ferry. We’ve made small talk every time we run into each other. He wears these stark white boots that cut off right below the knees, and they hug his legs tight. He’s got a deep voice and a nice beard (from what I can see with his mask on). He’s around my age and he’s really cute. I’ve never said that before and it literally makes me cry that I can say that now. I don’t know if he’s gay or not - and honestly, it doesn’t really matter. It’s still a compliment and I still mean it, regardless as to whether or not that compliment goes anywhere beyond kind words.
I just wanted to share this with someone. It may be casual for others, but for me, I’m proving to myself that I’m not going to allow myself to be scared anymore. Here’s to being fearless!
EDIT: y’all he wasn’t working today 😂 I will post an update in a new post as soon as I get the chance, I promise!
