Rocks are a Girl's Best Friend
Example Build #1
Not Updated For Current Season
Hello, I am GriffySquid here to explain the potential value in Taliyah Support. Being a support main I wanted to try out the newest champion in the role of support. Taliyah, being a control mage, can zone enemies and setup fights for her team.
Passive: Rock Surfing
Q: Threaded Volley
W: Seismic Shove
E: Unraveled Earth
R: Weaver's Wall
Basic Early to Late Game Summary
During laning phase (early game), using her combos and Threaded Volley can force the enemy to play more defensively. And with Frost Queen's Claim, Taliyah can easily setup ganks and kills for your team. The only downside is that she has long cooldowns, but with good itemization can be drastically reduced. Her Q Threaded Volley can throw off your ADC's farm and should be used on worked ground for poking purposes.
Also, don't forget to ward!
Though despite all this, she is still vulnerable to damage sources and can be caught out easily . Players should play her passive-aggressively only to take fights when they know that they can and when the ADC is ready.
Mid game is when things get a little rocky. If your team is ahead, you can make plays and take objectives. If not, you can get caught out at anytime if playing aggressively.
In late game she can still make plays and deal damage, but is still squishy and is prone to cc. By now Taliyah should have around 35-40% CDR so that she can use her combos more often as well as using Unraveled Earth to clear minion waves and peel for the team.
Synergy (Still in testing)
This is my support guide for Taliyah. Criticism, comments and suggestions are welcome so long as it is reasonable and friendly. I do hope that this guide can work as I will keep improving it as I play more and more of Taliyah support.
