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.

Protect the carry

Really, Taric isn't that exciting, but he's a very safe pick who teaches you very good habits. His long stun range encourages you to hang back and poke, while waiting for a strong advantage before you commit with his full kit. Most importantly, stay close to your ADC and stun anyone who tries to dive him/her. Keep looking for a good time to land a clutch heal, and remember to auto-attack to lower the Q cooldown when it's safe (but don't steal minion farm or push the lane unnecessarily!)

I suggest getting AS runes and masteries and buying a Tear of the Goddess to make use of Gemcraft, but otherwise it's not worth spending gold on, especially as a support.

Top lane option

As a top laner, you might be free to experiment more, but I have not thoroughly tested top lane Taric; such a project would take me a lot of Normal games to come to a conclusion. A tear and an early RoA will make Taric into a bursty bruiser with strong heals, and a full Muramana makes his E a legitimate nuke.

Pros/Cons

PROS:


* Really safe support pick
* Tear + utility + AS option adds some damage to the mix
* Luxury Manamune can make a difference in long games
* Scales pretty well
* Optional: unconventional top laner can be a bit unexpected to enemy team.

CONS:


* Taric can be boring to play
* No game-breaking mass CC ultimate
