What is Taric?


Healers are champions that have some way to heal other champions or themselves often.


Tanks are champions that have some sort of tanking ability to lock down a target for your team to focus. They also have higher than normal armor and magic resist scaling as well as a high health pool. Tanks generally have some sort of tanking ability in there kit to mitigate damage


Support is a role for bottom lane. Supports protect the team's ADC and provide them a means to stay in the lane and get CS. Supports provide the team with vision control and activatable items that have an effect on other players. They can provide support through sustain, crowd control, or even burst damage. Support is a role that requires an understanding of every other role. Supports must also support their entire team and create an environment where his/her team can prosper.


Carry's are class's of champions that become very strong near the end of the game. They are champions that if are allowed to build their items can win large fights on there own. They are a class of champion that can generally solo other champions or provide a great threat to the enemy team. Carries are generally weaker in the early parts of the game because they are dependent on items and Levels.

Pro's & Con's


Armor Penetration Debuff
Armor Aura
Ad and AP aoe team buff
Cooldown Reduction on Hit
Tanky stats
High Burst
Late game
Taric has a single targeted Stun at a medium range. A single targeted Heal that also heals himself. A passive aura that grants armor to allies that scales off Maximum armor. An aoe Armor penetration Debuff. An AOE temporary group buff to AD and AP. high burst damage. He has very good scaling and is powerful in the end game.


Item Dependent
Not overwhelmingly powerful
No Escape
Requires Melee Range
Not one single spell has a tremendous impact
Taric doesn't have a spell that you max and gain an immediate threat from, His kit requires you to utilize all spells and abilities to be effective. He also must get into melee range to do his thing. He has no escape and his cooldowns are long if you do not proc his passive on enemies. He is very easy to kite and neither his heal, his stun, or his shred or aura are very powerful.

Taric Can skill up in a variety of ways depending on the circumstances

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
Note: This setup maxes Dazzle first and Imbue second. Maxing Dazzle gives it a longer duration, a shorter Cooldown, and Higher Damage. Ranking up Imbue second gives you survivability from a variety of damage sources.

Taric can have numerous rune combinations that will be effective depending on which way you level up his skills and what you are trying to accomplish. But I like to use these runes because these runes work well with any of the aforementioned Skill orders and play styles.

◉◉◉ 4.5 % Hp
Note: Percentage based health Runes will give you more value from all of the health items you purchase. Health is a main stat for scaling on Imbue

◉◉◉ 8.19 Armor
Note: Armor scales with Shatter.

◉◉◉ 3.69 Mana/5
Note: Mana is used by all of Taric's spells, We do not build any mana Regeneration Items. Mana Regeneration Runes synergism with Mastery choices. This will help you lane without running out of mana.

◉◉◉ 12.06 Magic Resist
Note: Magic resist protects you from magic attacks. Taric doesn't gain magic Resist from Shatter, so we can take more Magic resist in our runes to balance our Defenses.

Summoner Skills

I only consider these two Spells to be viable options for playing support taric in ranked games

◉◉◉ Exhaust
Note: Exhaust is a multipurpose spell. Use it to Make a champion take more damage from both Magic and physical Attacks. Use it to reduce a champions movement speed. use it to Reduce a champions damage output.

◉◉◉ Flash
Note: Flash is a multipurpose spell. Use it to flee from enemies. Use it to suddenly engage on an enemy. use it to finish a fleeing enemy. use it to dodge abilities. use it to travel over terrain. use it to get in range of an ally to heal them.
