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.
I replaced Zhonya's Ring with Zhonya's Hourglass
I completely removed Spirit Visage (useless item for Galio)
I added Force of Nature
I added the Update section to this build
I replaced Ignite with Cleanse
I completely changed the Runes
I changed the summoner spells into "Ignite" and "Flash"
Alright, so this is my first build and you are welcome to tell me how to make it better if you think something is missing. First of all I excuse myself for grammar mistakes.
You can play Galio as a tank or mage, I gonna show you how I play him.
My masteries are a 9/0/21 build.
I start with a Meki Pendant and 2 Health Pots or 1 Health Potion and 1 Mana Potion.
-Chalice of Harmonie
-Force of Nature
Sell your Chalice of Harmonie to finish your Force of Nature.
How to...skills, items and behaviour!
In early game I go top or bot and start getting some levels. My first skill is Righteous Gust, so it is easier for me and my team to get first blood. Try to harras and finally kill your opponnent using your speed boost of Righteous Gust and slow him with your second skilled ability Resolute Smite.
I skill Righteous Gust on lvl 2 Resolute Smite on lvl 2 then I skill my Bulwark for the following time. I always lvl up my Righteous Gust before Resolute Smite or Bulwark though Bulwark gives me an higher MR and AP.
Skill your abilities like you think the situation needs it. You can skill Resolute Smite first if you need to slow your enemys instead of getting a speed boost to chase after them.
After you have first blood you can recall and get your boots. Refresh your inventory with new pots and look who of your teammates needs backup. Righteous Gust and Resolute Smite can give your team a few kills. Now you should have bought your first parts of Guardian Angel.
Galio is more a harrasser and supporter than a killer but do not miss the chance to chase after an enemy and slow him to get some kills too.
At level 6 it is time for your first team gank. get one or two teammates and look for a group of at least two enemies to attack. Use Bulwark to get higher MR and AP and try to get all your enemies into your ultimate's range. If it does not work use your Flash spell to get them.
Remember: Always use Bulwark before Idol of Durand but watchout you have enough mana to cast both abilities!!
Activate your ultimate let your teammates make some damage and maybe kill some survivors with Ignite.
Now you may buy your Guardian Angel and start with Abyssal Scepter. The AP and MR of Abyssal Scepter grant you a bonus of ~100 AP and makes your Ultimate deal high damage.
The end game is quiet easy. You have GA, Abyssal Scepter, Mercury's Treads,Banshee's Veil and eventually Force of Nature so you can start to farm money for Zhonya's Hourglass. Sell your Chalice of Harmonie if nessecary to get the rest of the money. If you have Zhonya's Hourglass the game should not take too much time anymore.
I hope this build makes it better for you playing Galio, The Sentinel's Sorrow.
