Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to my Guide of Taric. First of all I want to thank you for giving a look to this guide. Now to the important stuff. Taric is very good support champion who heals and prepares the kills for the ADC or even save it from ****ty situations. Quick Introduction lets jump up into the runes and the other important things to be mentioned.
Once again I go for full tankiness on my runes by choosing Greater Seal of Health x9, Greater Mark of Armor x9, Greater Glyph of Magic Resist x9, last but not least Greater Quintessence of Armor so to gain the maximum effect from every section of runes. You can also pick Quintessences of each Section Magic Resist x1, Armor x1, Health x1. BUt i suggest armor for anti-poking enemy carry. So choose these runes and have fun by laughing on the zero damage from the enemy carry.
Now about masteries I picked something more supportive than sustainable. By the masteries you gain Explorer's Ward and the biscuit to assist you. Explorer's Ward can give you a 60 seconds vision on whether you will be ganked from jungler or not. The biscuit will help you on struggling times where you are gonna need the mana and health regen.
About items, you begin with 5 consumables including 1 Vision Ward, 2 Sight Ward, 1 Total Biscuit of Rejuvenation, 2 Potions either Health Potion or [Mana Potion]], but on my personal opinion I would suggest 2 Health Potion and we shall not forget the crucial item Faerie Charm :P. Hehe it will be crucial on building Spirit of the Ancient Golem though. Well the warding its pretty much the known one.
I think it is the best way to open up your abilitiesShatter you have the stun effect from E Dazzle and the heal from Q Imbue from the very 4th level. Then ulti on the 6th,11th and 16th level. Basically finds a good laner and dominate your role and the game.
One of the few big-spender champions. The heal Imbue costs a lot of mana and generally all the abilities thats why i suggest Clarity to help not only yourself but your ADC too. Additionally Exhaust will help you catch up with your foes and clear them one by one.
Everything mentioned before is about Ranked Play and queue so does the guide so nothing special to mention here.
Pros / Cons
- Hold your Shatter for bonus armor and spend it only when you are sure you won't need the armor
- Well by using Imbue on yourself you gain more heal so it is very useful on defending your turret and though your lane
- Very good sustainer and support.
- By the opening of Shatter you gain only armor and no magic resist so try to avoid any enemy mage champion and heal your team from afar.
- When against Taric try to observe his summoner spells, if he uses Clarity do not poke him
- Regarding to use from you on Taric try to focus healing more your teammates though it is not necessary to sacrifice for no reason just to through a Dazzle to your chasing enemies. Just watch to leave you will prove useful alive than dead
Your Imbue has a passive cooldown reduction per basic hit. If the hit is on enemy champion you gain 3 seconds reduced and every other basic hit is reducing it by 1 sec. So try to hit by basic attacks the minions though do not confuse your adc on last hits so try to hit upper than half-life minions.
Well that was it. Thanks once again for being here and following my guide I hope I have helped you. That guide has been built by personal experience and has not taken any reccomendation from other guides uploaded to Mobafire or to any other site. It is a personal work and I would like from you to respect it :). So guys have a good luck and fun on Fields of Justice and Have a good game out there.
