Slumdog Gallionaire (The Split
Not Updated For Current Season
Threats to Galio with this build
|Maokai||Maokai with good wave clear and usually tanky you can easily escape him easily as you outrun him and have a low cool down slow|
Runes and Masteries
You can always swap out of you want to strength of ages as it can make you really ****ing tanky and take exhaust instead of tp but generally stick to that list, the minimobis are a must have and paired with the mobis its deadly, you can pick up armor items but try to wait till you finish the negatron cloak because you get some actual damage in there. You can also go targons if you feel youre gonna have to deal with a lot of poke.
Matchups and Team Comp
You want a comp that can fight a 4v5 fight really well and have big AOE damage so personally I like ezreal and corki, the big splash damage is crazy when they are locked down and they have good escapes if you ult to disengage a fight, another good combo is with draven because of his hella ****ing damage. Bad matchups are good wave clearers and mobile champs like quinn and udyr but you wont be seeing a lot of quinn with the new meta shift. Maokai can be annoying as well as anivia cuz they can just clear the wave wherever and port back in to fight so force when a member goes off to jack on your zz'rot.
During the laning phase you want to be poking with your Q as it does decent damage when you powerspike at lvl 5 and combined with deathfire's touch it becomes annoying as **** to lane against. You want to try to make it through this poking but soaking exp and gold and making sure you don't get ganked so ward a ****ton. If your adc is out of lane dont back farm that **** *********a, you want all the ****ing gold you greedy man and dont think you gotta get all the kills because by the end of the game you gotta be farming like a *********a baby.
Let the FUN BEGIN!!!
Here is when you start the split pushing, try to get your team to engage the fights so you can run off top or wherever to split push the **** out of lanes. I like to zz'rot a bush, banner of command a melee minion and just ult a big wave to kill all of it, ranged minions also should die to your Q+E combo so don't worry about them. Also don't forget to tank tower with your w if the minions are gone but the towers almost dead and cycle your abilities to get the most out of the lich bane proc
You are still a support so use the talisman to YEET THE **** OUT OF GANKS **********ER DISENGAGE FIGHTS but other than that have fun split pushing and you should be able to win from being behind if you just play smart.
Whilst split pushing you want to try to find a gap when the enemy team is all pushing or your team is team fighting as you aren't exactly the most valuable, plant the zz'rot in between 2 towers and banner of command a minion, I like to do the melee ones. Next pop your elixir unless you don't have it or its already going and then try to ult a big wave or the minion wave about to come while yours are pushing tower, this should take care of all of them except the tank minion, once youve done this just rotate to another lane and start pushing that 5 man while the zz'rot and banner do all the ****ing work and if a dumbass tries to go start a fight just ****in bash a ***** and end them 5v4
