Threat Champion Notes
1
Leona When leona uses Zenith blade, stun her ADC. You have to play this lane as a peel bot for your ADC, but its simple.
1
Soraka While Soraka is AP, she isnt a damage threat. Focus her when you fight to keep her from healing her ADC to full.

Introduction

This guide is to cover the playstyle that I like to play when I play Taric. The build can be altered a little bit to make it fit the team better but this is the general build i prefer. The basic concept of this build is to have a ton of armor early and just run at the ADC and try to push him off the minion wave and put him behind in CS.

Runes

For this Build i run full armor runes to take advantage of shatter passive with my ADC. I have another rune page that i run if i play Taric into a more poke heavy AP support, but usually a different support is a better choice in those scenarios.

Team Work

As Taric in a team fight you want to try to hit as many people as you can with your shatter, then ult. after that you want to fall back to your carries and stun anyone who tries to jump on top of them. Remember to auto attack after every spell to reduce your cooldowns so that you can have shatter and stun available when you need them.
