Grandfather Galio's full MR Tank Guide

By Maxwell_Edison
Galio never got Reworked, he just let his nephew take over for a bit.
What's the deal with people building full AP on Galio? Proto-Belt, really?

Y'all have got no class, but that's okay. I'm going to help you all realize the true and only way to play Galio - By building an absolute ***-ton of Magic Resist and beating the living hell out of anything squishy & slow enough to not get out of the way.
Build Like Brick
We've got it all. Magic Resist, Move Speed, More Move Speed. More Magic Resist.
What more could you want?

Stoneplate is the Go-To first item, providing you with the complete base that all of your other items will build on. They're even similarly themed - Galio and Stoneplate go hand-in-hand.

Rocking Stoneplate as your first item, Pick & Choose whatever you fancy.
Every time I play, my item set is completely different - the 3 Core MR & Armor items can be chosen based on what, and when, you need.

Less Mages? Deadman's after Stoneplate.
More Mages? Abyssal Mask after Stoneplate.
More Mages, but they're actually killing you? Getting Chased Down? Force of Nature has you covered.

..Even MORE Mages? Go Banshees I guess. But they've already surrendered by then.
Galio Support is Amazing
Seriously. I'm not even sure if the Mid/Top build work anymore, it's been so long since I've played anything but Support Tank Galio.

You should, too.
Just remember to buy Locket as your first item - It's stats are amazing for Support and it isn't anywhere near as expensive as Stoneplate is.
Any Other Way Is Wrong
And a sin. Remember that! AP galio is for people who don't want to get their hands dirty.

Smash some heads! Be the center of attention! You know you want to.
I'm not a particularly amazing player.
But I will never not enjoy playing MR Galio.

I started playing Galio around a year before his rework - He was so under-utilized back then, that all of his guides were outdated. I remember forging an entirely new build - new starting items, new ending items, new runes - all to make the most out of a long forgotten champion. A hero.

Galio as we knew him isn't with us anymore today, bless his heart.
Instead, we have his nephew - And while his bronze may be tougher than his brains, and while he may give off this "RADICAL GNARLY DUUUDE" persona, he is still family.

Maybe we'll make a hero out of him yet. Right, Poppy?
