Introduction



Hi guys, my name is Pho Is Delicious and this is my first guide! Now at first glance Taric jungle seems unusual, but with enough practice, it really pays off. I also want give a lot of credit to Reddit user Flipschtik for this idea http://redd.it/2mwo6d

Summary



Taric jungle is very unusual but it sure works. Taric has natural tankiness due to his W and his Q keeps him very healthy in the jungle. An important thing to note is that in order to do well in the jungle, you have to chain your spells. (Ex: W -> AA -> Q -> AA -> E) This will maximize your damage output due to his passive. Taric's ganks aren't bad either with red buff. He has a stun, armor shred, a heal, and a stat boosting aura. Taric also can take objectives quite fast with his ult too. Taric also because a strong armor heavy tank late game. Taric can even 1v1 some ADC's with Triforce. The 40% CDR from items also give him a very nice spell spamming. (Stuns for days) Note: This build is still a work on progress. I will update it when needed.

Pros / Cons

Pros


+ Gives armor to team
+ Shreds armor
+ Heals
+ Good teamfight
+ Tanky
+ Point and click stun
+ Passive lowers CD

Taric's Strengths

Taric works with a lot of team comps because he is tanky, has heals, stat boosters, stuns, etc. His ganks are quite strong early and then he can transition to a moderate damage dealing tank in the late game. His skills are especially useful on champions with physical damage because of the armor shred from Shatter






Taric's weaknesses

Taric doesn't deal a lot of damage like other junglers *cough* Warwick *cough* and he is more of a support jungler. He could have hard time keeping up with the other jungler if he falls behind. He can get kited and his engages are usually very obvious without flash. Unlike other tanks, he doesn't provide as much CC other than a stun.

Cons


- Kited
- Short Range
- Somewhat slow clear
- Has a hard time engaging
- No gap closers
- Doesn't provide a lot of CC
