Very nice and in-depth guide. Thank you :)

Oh, I think you kept it in list format so it kept the indent. Send me a pm of the coding you used and I'll see what I can do, no promises. If you could add an extra[[ to each coding that would be great.

Hey, you requested a review so here it is.
Since we're judging based on 4 different aspects, I'll go by all of them and list all the issues/criticism/questions I have :)


Viability/Content

It's hard for me to judge on the viability of AD Jungle Taric and AP Taric, but I do have some questions about the content:
  • AP: What happens when facing an enemy like Karthus or Brand and you have to start with boots? Won't Taric often run out of mana?
    Also, how should you play before going in for the kill? What is his 'harass'?
  • Jungle Taric: What clearing times does he have? Also, is counterjungling easy?

Finally, one question about the support part of the guide:

Spelling/Grammar

The weak spot of this guide.
It's ok if you're not English, but I wonder whether you did a spell check on this.
I decided to take a 'quick look' at the errors, which is why I now have a list of 98 mistakes you made, Ctrl + F them to find where these mistakes were made and fix them.
  • buff's --> buffs
  • and outzone them --> it's simply zone, not outzone
  • Aura's for the team --> auras
  • Great at pushing due to being so tanky and a decent heal. --> having a decent heal
  • your AD carry do not allow --> does not allow
  • as an swift flash-stun combo --> a swift flash-stun combo
  • you're jungilng --> jungling
  • going MID/Solo top --> Not bad, but why the caps? Mid
  • I have always been happy for Ghost along with strong AD melee characters --> happy about using Ghost on strong AD melee characters
  • to finish of another Champion --> finish off
  • wonderfull counter --> wonderful
  • Carrying Smite with you on the lane *** --> in lane, not on the lane
  • Fortify has been removed from the game :)
  • doesn't real suit me --> really
  • and therefor also a viable choice --> therefore
  • I'm not happy for it --> happy about it
  • Those summoner spells of which I did not mentions, are not supposed to be used --> The summoner spells that I did not mention are not supposed to be used (remove the comma)
  • as well as pushing your lane out by auto-hitting --> simply pushing your lane
  • the carry have to care about --> has to care about
  • high cool down --> cooldown (you make this mistake more often, Ctrl+F it)
  • In team fight he will be able to spam heal people while giving tons of damage, as AD since the cool down is lowered by 1 second per auto hit --> As an AD champion, he will be able to spam heal people while dealing tons of damage in teamfights, because the cooldown is lowered by 1 second per autohit
  • It can be key to winning a team fight, by picking out their carries and on the lane its just fantastic in good combinations --> Messy. Rephrase to something like this:
    It can be key to winning a teamfight, when used to stun their carries. In lane, it's just fantastic when combined with another ability like Caitlyn's Yordle Snap Trap (you can run forward stunning them, while Cait plants a trap under them).
  • [Radiance --> coding error
  • a burst damage --> 'a damage' doesn't exist. Change to something like an amount of damage
  • Acording to me --> According. Can be rephrased to In my opinion
  • with a Champion who got a good burst due to his stun --> who has good burst (remove a)
  • you should primarily focuse on the following --> focus
  • when the opportunity arrives. --> You're looking for when the opportunity arises
  • try to avoid getting harrased too much --> harassed
  • on eachother --> each other
  • and take the burst from the enemy Champions --> tank, absorb or soak the burst damage
  • Farming as the tank is okay, unless you're taking them from another Carry.
  • she got plently of time --> she has
  • repeatedly keeps on nuking --> we keep
  • pissing of your opponent --> pissing off
  • cruel ***asian --> assassin
  • with alot of Talon's --> a lot of Talons
  • Taric is wonderfull partner for everyone --> wonderful
  • teamfight is incomming --> incoming
  • unsure of who to pick out --> change to unsure of who to choose
  • WHO GOT THE HIGHEST DAMAGE OUT-PUT --> HAS THE HIGHEST DAMAGE OUTPUT
  • ekstra damage --> extra (you make this mistake more often, Ctrl+F it)
  • Keep in mind to use Imbue on your low healthed teammate --> rephrase to: use Imbue on a teammate that has low health
  • It might not be a Soraka's heal --> Soraka heal
  • heal your team mates --> teammates
  • not a powerfull magican --> powerful magician
  • your [dazzle] --> coding error
  • as Xin Zhao Xin zhao might would do --> remove Xin zhao and remove might
  • pull out if you get foucsed --> focused
  • Whereever you go --> Wherever
  • Buy x1 Faeirie Charm --> Faerie Charm
  • If you got the gold to spare (Due to new masteries, buy whatever suits you) --> If you have some gold to spare (due to the new masteries), buy whatever suits you
  • Now it's time to buy either a [vision ward] or an Oracle --> coding error, no coding for Oracle's Elixir
  • This item might do a game breaking momemt --> This item may be useful at a game-breaking moment
  • It is also good for escape mechanism --> good to escape or good as an escape mechanism
  • in alomst every game --> almost
  • if you have alot AP carries on your team and if they team are filled with fed AP Champions --> a lot of AP carries and if their team is filled with fed AP champions
  • while Randuin's Omen are recommended --> is recommended
  • Its the same concept as Randuin's Omen and Abyssal's scepter, Banshee's veil is a badarse against fed AP foes --> It's the same concept as Randuin's Omen and Abyssal Scepter, Banshee's Veil is a badass item against fed AP foes
  • my favorite rune pick in Mark's --> marks
  • is abit higher --> a bit
  • if we are almost 100% that the combo you meet --> 100% sure
  • The added armor makes the carry feels like she got zero damage, when she is attempting to harass you --> makes the carry feel like she has (why she?)
  • It's always usefull --> useful
  • who can complain over that --> about that
  • a good an amount --> a good amount
  • might make the difference on getting the kill or not --> the difference between
  • you should take 3/3 in Archmage's Savvy --> That's now 4/4 Mental Force
  • with both Sight Ward's and Vision Ward's --> Sight Wards and Vision Wards
  • you probally --> probably
  • I were originally inspired to try out AP-Taric, by iCheatx --> I was
  • the damage output Taric have as an AP-carry --> damage output that Taric has
  • advantage of having [dazzle] --> coding error
  • Rabadon's cap, made through your Needlessly Large Rod size --> Rabadon's Deathcap and Needlessly Large Rod
  • Next in line could be Guaridan's Angel --> Guardian Angel
  • [Greater Seal of Potency]], is also great, if you have intentions to go flat AP in all your runes (Do NOT change them in marks, go Armor Penetration there] --> coding error. Also, replace the ] by a )
  • your [dazzle] --> coding error
  • I hope to get some positive feedback and critism --> criticism
  • I like my route alot more --> a lot
  • The stats on it is simply too great --> the stats are
  • will not just slow your taget --> target
  • it got the damage you search for as well --> it has
  • Usefull for high damage --> useful
  • in a long a** game --> a** ?
  • since I decided to skip it in the my Quint runes --> Sounds better if you say: since I decided not to use armor penetration quintessences
  • when fighting the jungle --> you're jungling, not fighting the jungle :P
  • I like the armor seals abit more --> a bit
  • If you did not pick attack speed it neither Marks(red) or Seals(yellow) You need to take them in Glyphs --> in either Marks or Seals
  • Taric is an overall tanky character and do not need 'tank' items --> does not need
  • So when actually building him tank, makes him kinda unstopable --> building him like a a tank, it makes him kinda unstoppable
  • [[Philosopher's stone Philosopher's stone --> Coding error
  • unless you're stealing your partners creeps --> your partners' creeps
  • Runes to make you even more unstopable --> unstoppable
  • Is usefull --> useful
  • it means alot to me --> a lot
  • Critisism is allowed --> Criticism
  • (What do my guide need?) --> What does my guide need?

There were also quite some sentences that could be rephrased, but listing those as well was simply too much work so I stuck to actual errors. Hope that's enough.


Visual Appearance

This guide looks good, but I feel like a lot of sections are the same and you use lists a bit too often in my opinion. Try making more use of columns.

To take your 'Abilities' section as an example, you could make it look like this:
Gemcraft
SPACE
Can be a minus in the laning phase, as you are forced to auto-hit some of the minions to keep up your mana. You might have to put yourself in range to get harassed, as well as pushing your lane out by auto-hitting. Also keep in mind to hit minions, who have a high amount of health. This way you can avoid killing them; last hitting is something the carry have to care about, not you.

The black text won't be visible because the Mobafire background is also black, of course ;)

There are two other issues I have, both of which I'll explain using a screenshot:
  • Spacing. The red lines indicate where I think should be more Enters.
  • Headings. The words with a blue circle around them are the introduction of a new subject, yet they aren't centered and don't have a fancy colour or a heading :S
Note that these pictures both show only examples of what I mean.


Depth

Absolutely amazing. Support Taric, Jungle AD Taric, AP Taric and Tank Taric. This covers everything players need to know about Taric.
A possible improvement could be also listing some enemy laners in the bottom as well as in the middle lane, but it's not necessary to add that.






That's it, hope it helps.

Great job on making such a detailed guide ^^

I'm not a Taric-fan, but I read this to get more knowledge. :)

I think that the only Taric that should be played, is support Taric. I think that this is most viable in SERIOUS games. As AP or AD, I think that other champions are better. And as a player, who plays as tank very often, I'd say that Taric is a bad tank - he got only one CC.

Still, It's good that you tried all the possibilieties, but I think that you should pay most attention to support-Taric. +1 of course for your effort.

P.S. If you like tanky supports, try out Alistar - he is my favorite supporting champion. :)

I play alistar too :p
But well, I also mention that Taric tank, shouldnt be played and is not recommended by me.
Jungle Taric might not be the best either, since there are many better jungle picks.

And about AP Taric, it is viable and I play it in ranked, I only lost 1 game with it, but I never had a negative K/D/A in Ranked with AP Taric. (Not that I play it THAT Much :) )

Thank you for the vote.

I understand you win ranks with AP Taric but think for a moment - will he nuke the enemy as good as Gragas or Brand? I don't think so. So I wouldn't count him as ap carry.

For me (if not support) he can be rather ap-offtank (something like mordekaiser).

True ;) But I like a challenge, and this is also a reason why I havent made a chapter, of how play ranked. Since only support should be picked in ranked.
