Yes the team battle Taric is in the jungle this time round. I think the problem with Taric is both with his W and passive. He hits way too hard for someone who doesn't need to build an ounce of offense, especially late game, because they did not lower his base AD to begin with. And needless to say, mana/armor items, i.e. the Glacial Shroud tree, are essential (and overpowered) on him.

Very much agreed on all counts. It was a straight buff, and offers him so much damage, a nerf HAS to happen or else he's just insane. I like my Glacial Shroud later, as jungle, so I can focus on offense, but it's just so good, I'm tempted to boot it up in the build to be post-Seeker's Armguard. About to play him, so I'll try it out again.

He's in an odd spot as a support right now, as if he wanted... He could BE the ACD!

@Noict: Thanks!

@Koit: Nicely done! I've considered cloth start, but I just feel machete adds far more than it could for early clear speed, plus Ancient Golem is an awesome item :p

Next time I get to my laptop I'll add both pictures from you two! Thanks again!

Haha, I think my phone 'autocorrected' that! ADC, hehe.

BotRK got nerfed with the hotdog today, but Taric and Warmogs are still excellent.

I'm rly not sure about Ancient Golem item, but i will try it. Cloth armor gives you more damage from your "w" and it's helpfull while ganking lanes (specially while mid ad is so popular now), while matchete is just jungle item and gives you nothing for ganks. So after 1st back i'm trying to get:

Philosopher Stone (for Shurelya), and Tear of the goddess(sometimes even boots).

These items helps me with mana while Taric is mana hungry with out blue in early game. If i'm not able to get these items i'm buying Philosopher + Boots.

Core build for me -> Shurelya(double/triple ghost at ganks) + Manamune + Sunfire cape.

Well, as the Jungler, your role is to clear the jungle and then gank lanes second. You don't need to be ganking during the early rounds, which means the Machete is more helpful and efficient for your team. It means you can complete your rounds and get your gold at a faster pace, regardless of overall health anyway, which means you can go back and prepare yourself for the ganks next. I don't take a gank tool, i.e. my stun until level 4 anyway, as the goal early is to focus on preparation.

I feel Shurelya is something the support should be buying. The stats it offers are NOT good enough for the things Taric needs to be a strong jungler. Cooldown Reduction can be handy, but his Damage on his W mid-game and damage on passive mid-game are most important. Getting Ancient Golem item also means you can freely buy Ninja Tabi for more tankiness and Armor and not have to worry about your Tenacity suffering. It also offers stats you want.

I totally agree with Tear, though I feel building up your Boots and Ancient Golem is best early, as it gives you far more tankiness, and you should be able to retain your blue. Taric's Mana-Hungry, but it's very easy to conserve mana on him, by limiting ability spam. His W, the main clear tool, is very cheap.

Just my thoughts on how that works though.
