Choose Champion Build:
I have Zhonya's Hourglass because it will allow you to survive a normally suicidal flash-ult in late game.
You could build that into a Deathfire Grasp, but I really don't think Deathfire is suited for Galio.
Item Alts for Force of Nature and Abyssal Scepter:
Rabadon's Deathcap - Great for any AP. If you feel that you are a bit under powered definitely throw out Force of Nature or Zhonya's. Get this right BEFORE OR IMMEDIATELY AFTER BANSHEE'S VEIL.
Spirit Visage - Survivability & CR
Morello's Evil Tome - AP & CR
Once you get your ult watch for chance flash in and ult for a kill or an assist. Baiting them to dive you under tower is one of the surest ways to get a kill as Galio. Don't be afraid to use your ult to save your carry if things get sticky.
In team fights you HAVE TO ULT THE AP AND/OR THE AD CARRY. Depending on how fed the carry is, it is acceptable to ult a carry alone. Its not ideal, but its better than letting the enemy carry rip your team to shreds. I would suggest you save Gust in team fights since it doesn't do much damage. You want to keep in reserve in case things go south and you need to GTHOOD, or if you need to chase down a champion.
Alternatives for Force of Nature, Aegis of Legion & Abyssal Scepter:
Force of Nature - Crazy good MR & survivability.
Guardian Angel - Straight survivability. Get if your getting owned.
Randuin's Omen - Kick *** item, great for any tank support.
Shurelya's Reverie - Good item to get since you've got the first part already, great for Galio if you need to help chase someone down or GTHOOD.
Spirit Visage - Cooldowns, MR, Health Regen. Balanced.
