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.
Taric Tanky OP Support
This is my first guide so trying to not make it look like trash but, in the end looks do not matter as much as content! I have been playing for 3 years plus and, have had Taric for a very long time. I play him EXTREMELY tanky and aggressive. He is in my humble opinion the best support in the game. First off non skill shot stun is great.. his armor aura is amazing!!! Your gonna be against an ADC so the aura helps you and, your ADC stay alive. It even shreds armor when you burst your crystals to help the ADC or if your ADC died for some reason it can secure the kill in alot of situations. In team fights it's even more important. He has a pretty solid heal that even heals you when your using it on someone else. Great for healing yourself while you TANK dragon and baron. The Ult helps everyone do more damage! LET'S KEEP IT SIMPLE!!
Very simple health! the way i set up taric I have 985 health at 1st level and a 50 health runic shield for over 1k health. Let's me say that again ( 1K HEALTH AT 1ST LEVEL ). This allows you alot of bullying in lane and tanking for you ADC.
Get ready to tanky to outrageous levels. This includes turrets/baron/dragon with ease. Heal yourself and, smile while your team shreds objectives down! Flex like a manly man!
Armor is huge due to your Aura fully built with this guide you should be running 499 Armor and enough MR to negate 54% on magic damage as well. The aura from your W will be giving EVERY team mate close to you over 50% Attack damage reduction!!!!
E is needed first for the stun so your ADC can get shots in. Build That AMAZING armor aura second and make sure to MAX it first!!! MAX your heal second. Of course as always with any champion MAX ULT every chance you get.
I choose these 2 for my play style. AGGRESSIVE!! I use flash to get in to stun if it is needed but mainly as always use flash to escape when I get tore down and, to avoid ganks. The reason for teleport is to go Heal when low and, get right back to my squishy as fast as possible to play battering ram again. After laning phase I use it to get to where my team needs me the most or if nothing else to tele to huge waves that threaten my teams turrets and get that CS gold to help further the build along. Teleport has so many use's it's crazy!
Pros / Cons
+ TANKY for the team
+ ARMOR AURA for the team ( Everyone loves free armor )
+ STUN for the team ( They cannot say no if their stunned ) wink wink
+ HEAL for the team ( Everyone loves heals )
+ MAJOR BONUS AD AND AP ULT AURA ( everyone loves to do extra damage )
PROTECT your ADC at all times!!! Do not be afraid to intiate fights!!! TANK for the team ( DRAGON/BARON/TURRETS/THE ENTIRE ENEMY TEAM). In team fights always be using your heals to save people... use your E to stun enemies not only to secure the kill but, also to save your team mate!..Your ULT has an extremely low cooldown so use it every team fight to help your team burst them down...Shred armor like crazy when you burst you W.. if you have to make the choice of your death to save a team mate there is no choice but, to be a manly man and take the death if it can save someone.. does not mean to die a dumb death .. only When needed.
