How to counter Darius as Garen
76
Cloth and 5 pots. @ Lv3 9 armor runes + Enchanted Armor = 65.83 Armor (w/ W passive v E Passive). Don't push lane, keep it closer to your turret. Spin when he's too close. If he pulls then Q and backup and he'll be Jung Food (no escapes). Build Health.

One of the biggest advantages of playing Garen is that he has no mana. Invest in your W early, & use it when Darius pulls. W/ this strategy you can minimize damage, & exhaust his mana supply. Once he is out of mana, wait for him to pull & set

If you're lucky, you can silence Darius after he has pulled. His damage output is a bit higher but ask for ganks and you should be fine.

How to counter Garen as Darius
173
As Darius, you can either start Doran's Blade or Cloth 5. Your damage output is higher than his when his W is on cooldown. You counter his passive with your passive and R, and the passive E armor pen goes through some of his free stat boosts.

Despite the upper hand in damage, it is important to ward and be wary of the jungler. Garen will most likey ask for ganks due to your hard damage and, only then, will he be able to go toe-to-toe with you.

Actually Garen has the upper 'hand' (get it)

Well, apart from this horrible pun, I am actually surprised to say that Garen counters Darius quite a bit.
Not too long ago, I never picked Garen into Darius because he is not so mobile and his passive gets countered hard by Darius.

But I recently played him then and I just won every single trade. So what you can do as Garen:
- MAX Q, YES I SAID IT.
- If Darius randomly AAs to disable your passive, Q him and spin a bit but move away from him while doing that and activate w if necessary, you do quite some damage and he can just get one AA more on you because of silence.
- Garen does perform ok in short fights and that is what you want against Darius.
- Take grasp of the undying (really helpful)
- Don't let him get 5 stacks (obvious)
- I really recommend ignite, Garen has no range nor DoT, really, really helpful. (also counters Darius' Q a bit)
- Lategame is yours. Walk up to the marked target or a carry Q,E,R-Dead
- I like boots of swiftness on Garen since he lacks a real gap-closer.
