S11 Galio Support Guide - 80% Winrate

By SimplyGod
This Guide is based on my Support Play style.

Helping out your Teammates as a Support can be a hard task. But I have got something that you may be interested in.
The main problem appears to be the fact, that you can't be everywhere at anytime on the map. Taking teleport as a summoner spell seems to be the best solution, but hold on. There's something better.

If you have already read the Notes before you can skip the next 3 Chapters.
Summoner Spells
Flash so you can be faster than light.
Ignite to see the world burn.

Under no circumstances you are allowed to favor Exhaust over Ignite.
Item Build
First you start your build with a Relic Shield and two Potions. Obviously you buy the Stealth Ward.
After collecting enough (1000) Gold to buy Mobility Boots, you can now finally go Base and start playing League of Legends.

The next Item will be Shurelya's Battlesong.
Movement speed is broken. Especially on all of your Teammates.

Buy Dead Mans Plate for the big fast and now you gonna get some of that juicy tank stats.

Gargoyle Stoneplate will keep you alive even though you probably gonna int, no matter what.
To take care of this you are gonna buy Zhonya's Hourglass.
Your Enemies will hate you.

If you are still dying against that fed enemy Diana Jungle you can now finally build Force of Nature.
Remember, movement speed is KEY!
I guess you have finally understood that movement speed is key.
If not, pls leave this Guide and stop playing Support . Also, pls consider never playing Galio again. Thx.

But wait a minute. There is something even more broken than movement speed.
There's this one thing in the Game of League of Legends called Teleport. If you somehow life under a rock or play in Iron, where your Top- or Midlaner has never picked this mysteries Spell called Teleport I will explain it to you.
You disappear literally anywhere you want and after only 4 seconds you are anywhere you want.

To achieve this, while you can still tilt the enemy ADC by igniting him, even though he is full life we take Unsealed Spellbook as our Keystone. It will not only unlock you teleport. Thinking back, you might have learned that movement speed is everything you need as a Support. Damn bro just take Ghost and just run it down even faster.
Hextech Flashtraption to annoy the enemy Midlaner by flashing over the Raptor wall without even using the real flash.
Future's Market to simulate real life and also get those Mobility Boots faster.
Cosmic Insight to gain those 15 summoner spell haste and 10 item haste. More haste more movement speed.
Taking Resolve second will now allow you to get some juicy tank stats.
Font of Life in combination with your W to get some nice healing for your allies.
Bone Plating to survive the initial Damage.

Now you go 2x Adaptive (AP) and Armor or Magic Resist. Depending on the enemy team.
If you play with a bad premade you might also choose based of his opponent.
P: Colossal Smash
Every few seconds, Galio's next basic attack deals bonus magic damage in an area.

Q: Winds of War
Galio fires two windblasts that converge into a large tornado that deals damage over time.

W: Shield of Durand
Galio charges a defensive stance, moving slowly. Upon releasing the charge, Galio will taunt and damage nearby enemies.

E: Justice Punch
Galio will briefly step back and charge, knocking up the first enemy champion he encounters.

R: Hero's Entrance
Galio designates an ally's position as his landing spot, granting all allies in the area a magic shield. After a delay Galio smashes down location, knocking up nearby enemies.
Mindblowing Tactics
As soon you see a good opportunity for you to get an advantage switch your Ignite Summoner Spell to Teleport.
Always remember:

1. Do not leave your ADC when he can be dived 2v1 by the enemy Botlane.
2. Do not leave your ADC when the enemies can freeze the wave.
3. Do not leave your ADC when hes your boyfriend.
4. Do not leave your ADC when you can dive the enemy Botlane 2v2.
5. DO LEAVE your ADC when he spampings or blames you for his mistakes

You might also switch to ghost to roam midlane or to get in ultimate range for your Jungler or Midlaner.

If you wanna make sure you secure an objective like Dragon or Baron you might also switch to Smite to show of your 200 Years of Jungle Gameplay experience only to failsmite getting your Account permanently banned.

Now get creative and figure out even more mind-blowing tactics by yourself.
As a formal Galio Main you also need to know his Region. Check this out.

A strong, lawful kingdom with a prestigious military history, Demacia’s people have always valued the ideals of justice, honor, and duty most highly, and are fiercely proud of their cultural heritage. But in spite of these lofty principles, this largely self-sufficient nation has grown more insular and isolationist in recent centuries.

Now, Demacia is a kingdom in turmoil.

The capital, the Great City of Demacia, was founded as a refuge from sorcery after the nightmare of the Rune Wars, and built upon the riddle of petricite—a peculiar white stone that dampens magical energy. It is from here that the royal family has long seen to the defense of the outlying towns and villages, farmland, forests, and mountains rich with mineral resources.

However, following the sudden death of King Jarvan III, the other noble families have not yet approved the succession of his sole heir, young Prince Jarvan, to the throne.

Those who dwell beyond the heavily guarded borders are increasingly viewed with suspicion, and many former allies have begun to look elsewhere for protection, in these uncertain times. Some dare to whisper that the golden age of Demacia has passed, and unless its people are willing to adapt to a changing world—something many believe they are simply incapable of doing—the kingdom’s decline may be inevitable.

And all the petricite in the land will not protect Demacia from itself.
The Colossus
As a formal Galio Main you also need to know his Law. Check this out.

Outside the gleaming city of Demacia, the stone colossus Galio keeps vigilant watch. Built as a bulwark against enemy mages, he often stands motionless for decades until the presence of powerful magic stirs him to life. Once activated, Galio makes the most of his time, savoring the thrill of a fight and the rare honor of defending his countrymen. But his triumphs are always bittersweet, for the magic he destroys is also his source of reanimation, and each victory leaves him dormant once again.

Galio’s legend begins in the aftermath of the Rune Wars, when countless refugees fled from the destructive power of magic. In the west of Valoran, a band of these displaced people were hounded by a vicious band of dark mages—exhausted from days without rest, the refugees hid among the shadows of an ancient, petrified forest, and their pursuers suddenly found their magic to be ineffective.

It seemed the fossilized trees were a natural magic-dampener, and any sorcery used within them would simply fail. No longer helpless, the refugees turned their swords on the dark mages and drove them from the land.

Some decided that this sanctuary from magic was a gift from the gods, others saw it as a fair reward for their terrible journey, but all agreed this should be their new home.

As years passed, the settlers crafted items of protection from the enchanted wood. Eventually, they found it could be mixed with ash and lime to make petricite—a material with a powerful resistance to magic. It would be the foundation for their new civilization, forming the walls of the new kingdom of Demacia.

For years, these petricite barriers were all the Demacians needed to feel secure from the threat of magic within the borders of their homeland. In the rare event that they needed to settle a conflict abroad, their military proved fierce and formidable… but when their enemies employed sorcery, Demacia’s roaming army had little recourse. Somehow, they needed to take the security of their magic-dampening walls into battle.

The sculptor Durand was commissioned to fashion some manner of petricite shield for the military, and two years later the artist unveiled his masterpiece. While it was not what many were expecting, the winged statue Galio would become vital to the defense of the nation, and serve as a symbol of Demacia across Valoran.

Using a system of pulleys, steel sledges, and countless oxen, they would pull the great stone figure to the battlefield. Many would-be invaders simply froze at the sight of the awe-inspiring silhouette looming before them—the titan who “ate magic” inspired a kingdom, and terrified those who opposed it.

However, no one thought to consider what exposing the statue to such unpredictable energies might do…

Demacia had been mired in battle with enemy forces in the Greenfang Mountains. A skilled order of warmages, known as the Arcane Fist, bombarded the Demacians with crackling bolts of raw, mystical power for thirteen days. Those who had survived this long felt their morale dwindling, and huddled close to Galio. Just when their spirits could be brought no lower, a slow, deafening rumble shook the vale, as if two mountains were grinding against each other. As a great shadow grew above them, the Demacian soldiers steeled themselves for death.

A deep voice bellowed from above. To the Demacians’ astonishment, the sound came from the colossus at their backs—Galio was moving, and speaking, entirely on his own. Somehow, the accumulation of absorbed magic had given him life. He threw himself in front of the Demacians, shielding them from attack after attack, absorbing each fresh bolt into his massive, stone frame.

Then Galio turned, bounded up the mountainside, and crushed every last one of the Arcane Fist into the craggy soil.

The Demacians cheered. They were eager to thank the petricite sentinel that had saved them… but as quickly as he’d come to life, their fearsome protector had ceased moving, returning to his pedestal, just as before. Back in the Great City, this bizarre tale was told in hushed tones by the few who had survived the Battle of the Greenfangs, and was usually received with silent incredulity. That day passed into legend—perhaps a mere allegory of ancient days to help people through hard times.

Certainly, no one would have believed that the colossus continued to see all that transpired around him. Even while immobile, Galio retained consciousness, longing to experience the sensations of battle once again.

He watched mortals pass beneath him, paying him tribute year after year. It puzzled him to see them disappear one by one as time rolled on. Galio wondered where they went when they vanished. Perhaps they were sent away to be mended, as he often was when he returned from war?

As the years slipped by, Galio began to realize the sorrowful answer to his question—unlike himself, the people of Demacia could not be repainted, or have their damage easily repaired. Mortals were frail, ephemeral creatures, and he now understood just how badly they needed his protection. Fighting had been his passion, but the people were now his purpose.

Even so, Galio has been called to battle only a handful of times in all the centuries since. Demacia has begun to look inward, with magic becoming rarer in his world than it once was, and so the petricite colossus remains dormant, observing the world through the murk of his waking dreams. The statue’s greatest hope is to be blessed by a magic so powerful that he will never be forced to sleep again.

Only then will Galio be able to truly serve his purpose: to stand and fight as Demacia’s protector, forevermore.
