Intro to Galio
Welcome, Galio is a melee support tank with ranged abilitys. Galio's ability's are Runic Skin (passive) Resolute Smite, Bulwark, Righteous Gust and Idol of Durand. Galio's most important and damage dealing is Resolute Smite then Idole of Durand and last but not least Righteous Gust (goes in order frome greatest to least Idol of Durand and Resolute Smite are tied) Galio is fun to play.
This is my first build i hope you like it. This is how i play Galio im on a 75% win streak with Galio with this build. 10% of the time my teamates do nothing to help and they dont listen. 5% of the time my teamates leave. The last 10% i just lose i hope you like this build and i hope it helps you.
Galio is a melee tank/ability power. Galio has ranged abilitys, for farming use righteous gust, if there is a champion in galio's lane use Resolute smite near the enemy champion. That will do so much damge to make them either fall back to the turret (which if your not near the turret the enemy champion wont get XP) or will go help a friend or bring a friend and might recall
Why have Rabadon's Deathcap?
Galio is a strong ability power tank. Galio's passive (Runic skin) converts 50% of his magic resist into ability power, so i stack magic resist first then i put Rabadon's Deathcap its unique passive increases the champions ability power by 30%. Galio's strongest ability (Resolute Smite) will deal at rank 5 about 500 damage or more!
Galio's abilitys are extremely strong in the order
Ult then Resolute smite last Righteous Gust
How to start this combo/order Draw them close like right on you then ult use resolute smite in front of the direction there going in that will slow then use righteous gust to gain movement speed and deal damage! if you need use your summoners skills to slow or too teleport a few yards away
3v3: Take bot tell your teamates to take top. If there's 2 champions on your lane play more defensive if there is only one champion just try to push play smart with your minions
5v5: Do the same for 5v5 but stay alone on top or bot and have 2 mid and 2 bot/top
Playing Against Galio
Galio focusses on Magic resist the most, so for mages get the Abyssal Scepter and stack ability power. Avoid attacking enemy's with bulwark thus will heal Galio and your attacks will deal less damage
I'm saying thank you for all of you who read this far. This is my first build i hope you like if you like my build and you leave a comment i will like you build.
