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.
Welcome to my second variation of Taric. This build is so that you can pop your ulti, and still survive unless the entire team goes all out on you. I have posted Randuins Omen and Frozen heart as just a base line item guide. The tricky part about this build is you have to build your defense against w/e the enemy is packing more of; Magic or Physical dmg. The Guardian Angel and the Banshee Veil are also nice choices especially if being singled out or stunned/silence/etc alot. I went with heal because i believe its one of those skills all tanks should have minus specific characters. Clarity is because if you've ever played Taric before you know his ulti is a mana hog. Ult, watch your mana go to 0, turn it off, pop clarity and its like you were never in a battle, and are fresh to either help your team push harder or fall back hammering out the stuns. Also you may say "A tank starting with Dorans?", well taric is an AP tank to a certain degree. AP increases your survivability when u pop your ult, stun, or heal. In the end this build is good for 5v5 matchesas an opening tank and to feed your comrade, but it ESPECIALLY shines in the 3v3 matches. Very little will be able to take you down once you get rolling, you still have your wiked auras supporting your comrades, your heals pumping your health constantly up, and your beautiful, BEAUTIFUL stun.
