So is Galio better for filling the support role or solo top? What kind of build would you go for with solo top? Of course with solo top you have to counter-build a lot, but just some general late game items.

Galieo is just soooo good right now. He's another anti caster, and that's just because of his passive. Then you get this whole AoE taunt thing which makes team fights a lot easier to win.

Make your rune page FULL MR.

Works wonders....

You can go support Galio because he doesn't need massive farm, his ult wrecks regardless.

Wasn't me, but I'm never closed minded about any idea until I've seen it fail more than it succeeds.

Also to the OP, Galio is a decent mid, but he's exceptional when used as a counterpick to champions like Cass and Brand, abusing their DoT type damage and stacking MR and some AP.

I do so enjoy the flying stone monkey, and I have to say, I think he should be put in the place he has the most lane presence.

This whole AP Carry mid thing thats been the craze in 5s makes him a great counter pick for mid. But the issue with Galio is he has really bad mana issue. So unless you are prepared to buy mana pots, ask your jungler for blue when it respawns, or just not farm, you risk being harassed due to the fact he is a melee champ and he isnt the best farmer.

Now should you get a blue or you rush a chalice, which I recommend, than you would be ok mid. Great pokes with Resolute Smite and Righteous Gust. Some durability with Bulwark, and well getting your ult fast is always fun too.

From a lot of my experiences, he isnt that great solo top. Unless he is against another solo top. He is easy to bully around when he is 2v1. Again he gets gimped by his melee range.


I think he is a great duo lane champ. He has a slow, a movement buff, he can make his partner a lil more durable, and well his ult does better when there are more people around. Strong pokes means he and his lane partner can dominate the lane, as long as they are working together.


As for items, I have to agree with the MR/AP combo. If the game goes to end game, I usually have Rylai's, Abyssal, Merc Treads, GA, BV, and either Frozen Heart, Randuin's Omen, or Thornmail.

This usually works out really well in most cases, and he has the bulk to ult against some of the hardest auto-attackers in game when he ults. His Ult is also a great anti-caster tool. If they get taunted, they cant cast, and that means your team can have their way with them. He is an under valued champ, with a powerful kit.

^ Yes.

And particularly against AP's with DoT damage like Cass and Brand. He crushes them.
