Introduction

Ever wanted to play a support with a very nice heal, a consistent stun, and pretty strong dmg/support skills? Well though you are very picky, Taric is the man for you! He has awesome lane presence with his stun and his heal, his W/R support his team and provide a unique damage twist.

Runes

For runes I do usually grab Armor/MR runes, or straight mana regen with some AP quints.

Masteries

I chose these masteries because of the fact that they are farely standard and very well versed for the typical support character, that is pretty much all there is to masteries.

Items

Alot of people don't like chalice on Taric, I for one thing it is awesome, so you can consistently toss out heals stun etc, without being low on mana, I get phil stone and heart of gold because you should not be getting alot of minion kills/champion kills with Taric since you are support. Then I chose the Aegis because it helps you and your team out quite a bit. Then shurley's because of the movement speed buff and just the all around stats that Taric needs. Randuins Omen pretty much the same, good for the slow and just all the stats it gives. Then lastly I gave him a Rabadons to add some definition to his heal, and some extra "WTF?!" to his W/R :)

Summoner Spells

Flash so you can get that vital jump in either for the Heal, Stun, or kill when no one else can!

Clairvoyance, because of the fact that is just pretty much a must on support, you have to check when different buffs are being taken, scout if the enemy team is doing dragon/baron, scout for ganks, check for early game items/seeing whos in whos lane etc.

Summary

Taric is just a fantastic support, Riot's nerf on his ult made me QQ, but its still not to bad as it does some damage and provides AD+AP to your teammates around you. But this build will provide all the vital things that Taric needs to be an excellent support, and then a cool little AP twist that seals the deal.
