-Things this guild will do:
>Give you a base to expand and learn to play this champion in your own style.
>Will show solid points of intrest about the champion and know abouts that will help you while you learn to play Galio.
>Will give you a good example of an item build set for Galio.
Lets begin, Galio is a support champion and is well built as a dps tank. Kinda like Rammus.
To build a well rounded Galio:
Your going to need a decent amount of Ap, magic resis, and armor.
To play Gailo:
If you want to start off on a good leg you may want to practice with skill shots because 2/3 of Galio's basic abilities are skill shots. Your going to need patients, just because you have good items or a good build on Galio isnt going to make you a god you need to know what to do when to do it, when to fight when to back down.
What should I be doing with Galio?
You should always be harrassing and farming off enemy minions and champions. Once you have your ulti is should only be used in specific situations that I will mention later in the guide. You shouldn't be expecting to kill everything nor should you expect to be able to tank 3 or more players, you will although be pretty annoying and hit fairly hard twords late game.
Runes: These are of preffrence to what you prefer for the champion but when useing Galio you want as little dodge as possible. There is a reason for this and i will explain it later in the build. I do not personaly have the runes I have displayed in the build but I still manage to do perfectly fine. They are simply what runes I would recommend for Galio.
Your Ulimate: Sadly its not a move that is going to destroy your emeny hands down so dont use it like it is.
When to use your ulti- Only use your ulti on single targets on two conditions! The target has high attack speed, or its your neck or theres and you can finish them with it. Apart from that your ulti should only be used in team battles running into a 2v1 and useing your ultimate can prove vital and work well for your team, each time your hit you deal 10% more damage at the end of the channal. 2 targets 3 hits each = 60% more damage at the end of the channal.
Why dodge is so bad for Galio- When useing your ultimate you (as stated above) dish out 10% extra damage each time your hit, each time you dodge you lose 10% damage. Its just not worth it.
