Utility: 11


* If Taric targets himself with Imbue Imbue, he'll be healed for more. As a result, he's very effective at tanking turrets.
* Use Radiance Radiance during pushes or team fights to boost the damage of your teammates.
* Taric's ultimate also affects minions which can be a great way to push through an enemy inhibitor or turret.
* Teaming Taric and other pushing heroes such as Sivir together could make a very effective pushing team.
* One way to itemize Taric is to stack auras, such as; Aegis of the Legion, Soul Shroud, and Stark's Fervor.
* Itemizing Taric for Mercury's Treads, Chalice of Harmony and Guardian Angel provides many buffs to his natural deficiencies.
o As Taric's base armor is already high thanks to his Shatter Shatter, Mercury's Treads is a good item to grab on him since he will often be the focus target in team fights. The magic resist also helps him as his starting magic resist is very low.
o Chalice of Harmony is an excellent item on Taric as it allows him to keep his ultimate on longer.
* A good item for Taric is Nashor's Tooth. Not only does it reduce his cooldowns, the faster attack speed can boost both Gemcraft Gemcraft and Imbue Imbue while he receives a favorable boost from the ability Power.
* Due to his slow speed and lack of any real escape/chase mechanisms (Dazzle Dazzle has a long cooldown and can be negated by such things as Banshee's Veil, Black Shield Black Shield or Spell Shield Spell Shield, Cleanse Cleanse, etc.) Ghost Ghost and Flash Flash are both respectable choices for Summoner Spells.
