Magic Resist Tank FTW

Pure and simple,this is a Galio Magic Resist Build for early / mid nuke and off tanking.

This is not meant to be a main tank build, as you'll be focusing on nuking when you aren't W/Flash/Ult'ing . . . .

Runes

I take Greater Mark of Warding (.97 MR vs the .07 per level) because it helps a LOT early level. The items you farm are expensive, and it helps to have some early nukes. The same goes for the Greater Glyph of Warding.

The only exception is the Seals, which pay back after 7 levels, as opposed to 11-12 for the others.

You will start with an additional 36MR at level 1, which equates to 18 AP (so it's like a free Amp Tome) . . at level 1.

Summoner Spells

I love flash. It's really required for a good Galio build. You also have to have a good team.

If you flash in and ult, and they aren't prepared, you can sit there "taunting" the other team and die before they are able to pick off their dps. So make sure you prep your team with a ping or a word in chat. However, once you flash, if do NOT hesitate to ult. the other team will know what you are up to and immediately try to run.

Heal is straight up survivability. W, Flash, Ult, Heal, Nuke if alive.

Ignite is another good one to get, as while you are ulting, put this on a squishy.

Items

Item builds will vary widely in a game depending on who / what you are playing. 340 MR is high, and you may need some Armor. If so, go for Thornmail as it will also help during your ult.

If you can afford to give up some MR, and are successful at getting kills / assists, a Meija's will help your nukage.

Assuming another tank or caster has Abyssal Scepter, you can go pure AP (155 % buff) or (100 AP + armor). Either will help you nuke, although the stasis activate will help ur survivability greatly during / after an ult.

If you have a Zil / Kayle on your team (or even a Shen) . . . and they are good, you can forgo the Guardian and go for more damage items or team buff like a Soul Shroud (which will give you some mana regen for farming, if you have map control and are able to relax / farm).
