Garen Rework Spin Can Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking is considered such a key futures learning skill that it is included as a General Capability in the Australian Curriculum. It is closely linked to Creative Thinking.

Responding to the challenges of the twenty-first century – with its complex environmental, social and economic pressures – requires young people to be creative, innovative, enterprising and adaptable, with the motivation, confidence and skills to use critical and creative thinking purposefully.

The Australian Curriculum states: 

'Critical thinking is at the core of most intellectual activity that involves students learning to recognise or develop an argument, use evidence in support of that argument, draw reasoned conclusions, and use information to solve problems. Examples of critical thinking skills are interpreting, analysing, evaluating, explaining, sequencing, reasoning, comparing, questioning, inferring, hypothesising, appraising, testing and generalising' (ACARA 2016).

Critical thinking:
 - requires you to use your ability to reason 
 - is about being an active learner rather than a passive recipient of information
 - is about rigorously questioning ideas and assumptions rather than accepting them at face value

"Critical thinkers test what they are told and what they read"
                                                                                                                                 (UNSW 2016)

Garen's in a bad spot. He's not very unique, described as, "a worse Darius", he doesn't have any real pay-off for mastery, and his abilities often lack counter-play, or don't feel good to use. With that said, onto the rework: **Base Stat Adjustment**: Health Regen: _8.34 - 20_ P: **Judgement** Range: _325_ Every _8/6/4_ attacks, Garen's next attack will cause him to spin in a circle, dealing _15 + (2 per lvl) + (60% AD)_ physical damage to all enemies in the area. **Judgement** can critically strike, increasing the AD ratio to _90%_, adding _(1 + bonus critical strike damage)_ and doubling the current base damage. **Judgement** deals _33.3%_ increased, if it strikes a single target. Enemies struck by **Judgement**, have their armor reduced by _25%_ for _6_ seconds. Q: **Decisive Strike** Range: _450/75_ CD: _10/10/8/8/6_ Garen thrusts his sword forward, dealing _55/80/105/130/155 + (100% AD)_ physical damage. Every enemy champion is hit by **Decisive Strike**, counts as an auto-attack towards the activation of **Judgement**. **Decisive Strike** resets Garen's auto-attack timer. W: **Courage** CD: _24/23/22/21/20_ Passively, Garen gains _0.25 armor and magic resist_ up to a cap of 30, for killing nuetral and enemy units. Actively, Garen reduces damage taken by _20%_ for the next _2/3/4/5/6_. If Garen uses **Judgement** while **Courage** is active, the damage reduction is doubled. E: **Perseverance** CD: _14/13/12/11/10_ Passively, Garen gains bonus move-speed,_5/5/10/10/15%_, when walking towards enemy champions. Actively, Garen cleanses himself of slows, doubles his passive movement speed towards champions, and empowers his next **Judgement**. The empowered **Judgement** deals _4 + (1% per 100 AD)_ of the units max health as magical damage, and silences all unit struck for _1.5_ seconds. While this ability is on CD, Garen loses the passive move-speed. R: **Demaican Justice** Range: _700/90_ CD: _120/100/80_ Passively Garen's basic attacks and **Judgement** deal _5/10/15 + (2% AD)_ true damage to enemy champions, that are marked as **Villains**. Enemy champions become **Villains** for _10/15/20_ seconds after damaging an allied champion or structure within 5000 units of Garen. Actively, Garen deals _175/350/525 + (28.6/33.3/40% of target's missing health)_ as magic damage, in target area, damaging enemy champions. If the enemy champion is a **Villain**, _50/60/70%_ of the pre-mitigation magic damage is dealt as true damage. Thoughts? Suggestions?
