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.
This is a Survival and Support build for Taric, specializing in buffing and healing teammates, some debuffing, and lane survival. The items in this build need to be flexible to counter the other team's strengths. Clarity keeps Taric in the lane, Ghost for quick get-aways, as this build is only tank-ish. No tower diving, folks. This is not a kill heavy build.
