Introduction

HULLO


I am Doctor Legendary and this is my first guide. admittedly, I am only a silver player from OCE. Regardless, I consider myself the greatest Taric player to ever live. You will do well to learn from me. As this is my first guide, all feedback is appreciated.

Here is my drawing of Taric which you might enjoy.

9x Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Many people underestimate Taric's damage as he is a support. However, Taric is able to deal an extremely high amount of burst damage especially once he has his Iceborn Gauntlet. Taking magic pen runes will increase the tons of damage you will do to the enemy squishies.

9x Greater Seal of Armor
These are pretty standard for supports. They will reduce the damage you take from the enemy ADC and also from their jungler if you are ganked. Armor also scales with Taric's Shatter.

9x Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
These will help you during mid and late game against their APC. Use armor glyphs if the enemy team does not have any AP

3x Greater Quintessence of Armor
Again, these will reduce the damage you take from the ADC during laning phase which will be keeping both you and your ADC alive if you do your job well enough. It also scales with you Shatter.

I prefer taking 21 in utility because I like having the extra movement speed. You might like to try taking 0/21/9 if you are not planning to do much roaming.
  • During early laning phase, using your abilities can deplete your mana quickly so I like to buy a mana potion with the extra 40 gold.

  • Meditation will also help you survive the laning phase with enough mana.

  • Fleet of Foot and Wanderer is great for movement speed and stacks with movement speed quints.

  • Recovery , Veteran Scars and Juggernaut all will give you health which will keep you alive.

  • As a support, you will not be receiving much gold, Greed , Scavenger and Wealth , should keep your income flowing.
