Introduction

NOTE: I'll add more stuff to this guide, as soon as i can afford more time.
NOTE: My english is not the best so if you find any mistakes plz let me know so i can correct it.
Yeah here is what you all been waiting for. A guide to support jungle Taric. I know what you think: "wtf is this ****? Troll guide?"
Yeah maybe it somehow is, because im not shure if you can use this in higher ELO games. But in all other games jungle Taric became extremly vailable.
The new masteries are a general buff to nearly every championtype. But they now also nerfed the jungle. So what does this result in:

  • Jungling is easily possible with every champ now
  • Good jungle/gank skills become even more important
  • Lots of new trolling stuff

I play Taric as a roaming support offtank jungler :-D. It sounds crasy but the new masteries made it possible.

The reason why i write this guide is becaus the new masteries make a Taric jungle realy strong. You aren't the fastest jungler, but you can jungle very save (i normaly run arround with >70% life). And your ganks are deadly (if the lane can put out some dmg).
But the reason number one is:
EVERYONE EXPECTS THE JUNGLE GANK! BUT NO ONE EXPECTS THE JUNGLE HEAL!!

Its just so funny running through a lane making the enemys go omg Taric gank failed and then you heal your teammates and backoff. It makes your Lanes become much stronger.

Items

The items i decided to use are a mix of the "basic" jungle and support items.

Start of with the basic jungle items: Cloth Armor and 5x Health Potion.
On your first trip back buy shoes and one or two Sight Wards. If you can afford it buy a Ruby Cristal or some more Health Potions (maximum: 2).
On the next trips buy:

After you bough this items start to look what you team leaks on and buy an Aura item that provides it. Continue constantly spamming Sight Wards all over the place.
