Why should you play Taric

The real question is why not. He has the best kit in the game by far and is uncounterable by almost every champion in the game. Also Taric is a great champion to pick up in case of those troll games.

Pros and Cons

Pros:
Free Elo
Nuke damage
Sustain

Con:
Countered by Cho'Gath
Flamed on for being too powerful
Ally team mates will often beg for more carrying.

Farming

During the laning phase, the enemy top laner should be more or less AFK while you cs. The enemy jungler is also too afraid of your almighty dps to stop your free farm.

At around 1:55 your buffs spawn. Be sure to take your jungler's blue buff. If he begins to cry about his scrubbyness simply tell him on how he should go AFK until your team wins because of your carry. Anyways with your brand new blue buff, you will now be able to sustain mana because your passive is non-existent.

At around 3 minutes take the enemy's tower for more gold to rush your Augment Death. At this moment the enemy team should be trying to kill you as you kill creeps. Simply ignore them and recall with around ten thousand gold to spare.

Team Work

During team fights your team should be peeling for you while you dps the entire enemy team in one devastating combo. It is important for the other members of your team to be stacking warmog's armor to be able to tank the enemy's futile damage.

After winning the team fight it is important to push major objectives such as blue buff or the golem camp. Remember that stalling the game has no consequences because they enemy team has a 0% chance of pushing a single tower.

At around 15 minutes into the game you should be pushing the nexus towers. But instead of ending the game right there ping your team to fountain dive. Once inside the fountain you should begin to ponder on the cycle of life and death as your team slowly falls one by one to the fountain. After a ten minute break and some bagels remember that you are still tanking the fountain's laser. Press R to pentakill the entire enemy team.

Skill Sequence

Harassing Combo:
E -> W

Killing Combo:
The enemy will kill themselves upon noticing your presence. This leaves cool downs open to the pesky golem camp.

Masteries

I run 21 / 0 / 9. This is to maximize your dps while still having a biscuit in the laning phase in case the enemy top laner isn't AFK.


Guide Top

Runes

I run all flat AP because it works.

I dont mean to BRAG but...


Just a day as Taric top lane. Unfortunately the enemy was Cho'Gath and he was not AFK to my surprise. But i manage to put the team on my back with careful positioning and superior mechanics.

Your family wants you to play taric.
And Dyrus wants you to play taric.
