Hi everyone, welcome to my Galio guide! Galio is a multi-role champion who deals AoE damage through his spells, while protecting his allies as a tank. He is a great mid-lane counter to AP casters who farms very well and can be proven quite difficult to remove from his lane. He may also be played in top lane as a caster/bruiser and also in bottom lane as a support/tank. Hence why I call him the 'Anti-Mage Caster Tank'. Enjoy!
