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.
Taric is support that isnt picked as often as i see he should be. Taric can be played as one of the most aggressive supports in the game. The utility he brings to a fight is rather under appreciated. He can lane with any other ad carry and gives very high burst early game.
Pros / Cons
- Insane burst damage early
- Shreds armor
- Is a Manly Man
- Low Sustain early
- Gems cost to much
This is the page i normally run for Taric 1/10/19.
Summoner's Wrath lowers the Armor and magic resist on who ever you use exhaust on so that you and your team mates can deal extra damage to that target
Three points into Resistance and 2 points for Hardiness for a little extra defense early.Maxing out Durability to go into Veteran's Scars allows you to be more healthy through out the game. it may not seem like much but grabbing this has let me escape death more then a few times.
I do not grab Good Hands for one reason death is not one of my goals. Summoner's Insight and Improved Recall is better then Good Hands unless you die a lot.
Swiftness really is not needed on Taric in my eyes but, I will grab if my team is lacking good engage. Expanded Mind with Meditation gives you some extra Mana with a tiny bit of Mana regeneration. Greed should be self explanatory. Wealth has points put into so i can grab an extra Health Potion or a Vision Ward.
Greater Quintessence of Gold
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Armor
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
- Greater Mark of Armor For extra "Manly Manness".
- Greater Seal of Armor For Going in Bawls Deep.
- Greater Seal of Replenishment if you are being a Mana hungry pig you may grab these.
- Greater Glyph of Magic Resist To stop Early ap damage from scumbag supports on the other team.
- Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist Gives magic resist per level and scales better into late game better then Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
- Greater Quintessence of Gold For extra Gems (cuz gems are freaking outrageous)
- Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed For using your Manly powers Fast.
Taric loves to socket magical gems into all of his weapons, resulting in his melee attacks replenishing his mana for 7.5% of damage dealt.
Taric brings forth earthen energy to heal a nearby ally and himself for 100 / 150 / 200 / 250 / 300 (+60% of ability power). If Taric heals only himself, the heal will be 40% more effective. Basic attacks reduce Imbue's cooldown by 1 second, but the reduction increases to 3 seconds when attacking an enemy champion

Early items to buy
Default item that lets you sustain in lane and extra gems
get this if you are not going for Boots of Mobility because it just slows you down from buying big items
i get this if i feel i need to land Dazzle because my team needs an initiate (cuz they are bad and not manly like taric)
i grab these if i need to spam my abilities in fights N Skirmishes more
if there a lot of wards on the map not just from bot lane i will buy this, careful though it will make you a target in all fights
Mid/late game items to pick up
i usually build this first, because it allows your team to engage and/or escape quickly from a bad situation.
buy this if your team is loosing in at least 2 lanes(I count jungler as a lane) and your jungler didn't buy one
purchase this if there are 2-3 auto attackers on the team. this will benefit them by giving extra attack speed and life steal
if you feel your team is melting from some for of AOE "Wombo Combo" this will help your entire team by giving them a Bubble
If you are your only initiator and your only front line champion on your team, this will also make the other team mad when as support you have 200 Armor.
If you are melting to ap damage in team fights
Taric is a Much under used support witch i think should be use more. with hight burst damage he can win a lot of lanes. hope you enjoyed my Taric guide please comment and tell me everything you have to say down bellow i reads them all o.o
