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.
Who am I?
Hello, My name is Brock and my favorite role to play is support. I love to play Taric since he's really beefy and can tank turrets late game or tank team fights, that's why he's really good right now. Season 3 I was Gold 4 and currently Silver II Season 4 since I had trolls on my team and 3 AFK people so I lost 4/10 of my placements, Overall I'm a really good player and I just need a good team to succeed and WIN!
Ranked Games Played as Taric
I've played Taric A LOT and I have to say, You will KS when you kill someone and you have to watch out for that, I did that a lot as you can see but I still manage to have a lot of assist.
I have +1 Gold Quintessences because you will have to make a lot of gold as Taric in order to complete the items you need for the team.
You should also have a lot of armor down bot so you can tank damage from Attack Damage Carries and turrets, That's why I put it under Seals and Marks.
You will also need Magic Resist later when you are in team fights so you don't take as much damage from a Ability Power mage so you can tank.
Most of the masteries in the Defense page is Armor/Magic Resist/Health/Reduced Incoming Damage
In the Utility page, The skill points mostly have what you need for gold income and experience points so you can get ahead of bot lane.
Taric is like a pimp in this situation, His ADC is his hoe and the ADC must rack money (Kills) in order to win. You must protect your hoe by playing defensively depending on what champions they have bot lane. If your ADC manages to catch first blood, Go ahead and play offensive and make sure to ward a lot, That's why you need to get your sightstone first thing. You really won't need boots because you will be tanking damage when in team fights and you're always going to be with your ADC or at least the team.
Alright so you should start roaming around mid game so you can get objectives and win the game. You must always stay in the front of middle depending how tanky you are now and you will have to try to land a Dazzle on someone important like a fed enemy or a ADC. If you're losing your Team Phase, Try to stay back and make sure when your ADC is in trouble that you need to go and Dazzle that person so your ADC doesn't die.
I have to say that Taric is really fun to play and easy to learn if you play him a lot and you can get carried from Bronze to Gold easily from Taric. His sustain in lane is ridiculous and his damage with his passive is crazy good. You can easily damage an opponent in lane with his passive and that's why he always wins lane, 99.9% of the time at least (^_^).
