Threat Champion Notes
1
Leona When she engages you can stun her ADC and you have wayyyyy more damage than she has in the early game, so that makes her engages very weak, as her ADC is taking a lot of damage. You will probably be able to stun her a lot of times when she looks for an engage, but you are both very tanky so it takes some times for both sides to kill eachother.

Introduction



So this is my guide on how to become a brilliant Taric player! Taric is not the most popular champion on the rift, but when played correctly he is a god in terms of keeping his team alive. His ultimate is outrageous in teamfights and Bastion makes him able to cast Starlight's Touch, Dazzle and Cosmic Radiance from other champions aswell as himself. Having Taric on the team makes it safer to engage teamfights and his stunning looks is not to be forgotten!

I'm a low diamond player who plays League of Legends for fun. I peaked in solo queue at diamond 3. I have recently changed my name to "Taric Support" and were earlier called "Lukkebeast". In S6 i hit challenger in Flex queue which is my greatest achievement in League of Legends so far!

I play a lot of games but not all are as great as i want them to be. I strive to get better at playing support and improving my skills every game. Not two games are alike and that's what I think is awesome. Every game you have to adapt your play-style and itemisation to which champions you are playing against.



Taric is my main champion and i really enjoy playing him. He is a champion that has a lot of influcence on the other players' performance in the game, which I think is amazing beacuse i like the teamwork in League of Legends. Taric can peel, heal and shield for days and yet he is also tanky as hell, and that is why he is my favorite champion. In ranked matches I played a total of 80 games with Taric in season 7. I won 51 and lost 29 which left me at a 63.8% winrate. But I also played a huge amount of normal games, which you can tell by the fact that i have reached a mastery score of 367k on Taric alone. Taric is one of the four I have upgraded to mastery lvl. 7. Mastery lvl. 7 is of course only meant to be used when showing off ;)


The picture below shows one of my winning sprees with Taric. He's a stunningly good-looking man, but he is also quite effective when it comes to winning games.

Runes


These runes are very effective when playing Taric.
Gaurdian let's you trade in lane without taking too much damage because of the shield it provides to both you and your adc. Revitalize is also very good with Taric because it buffs his heals and shields. Approach Velocity helps you reach your target in time whether it is a damaged teammate or an impaired enemy.

Items



-OR-

Ninja Tabi > ARMOR
Ninja Tabi is good against AD, as they give you armor and they reduce incoming damage from auto attacks by 10%, which is quite neat when facing an ADC who relies on attack speed or just ADCs in general.

Mercury's Treads > TENACITY & MAGIC RESIST
Taric mainly buys armor and is a tanky dude, but everyone gets caught at some point, and that's where it's nice to have tenacity, which Mercury's Treads provides. The magic resist you gain from them is also nice when facing AP champions like Syndra.

Locket of the iron solari
Locket of the Iron Solari is a really good choice, as it protects everyone standing close enough to you. The shield also scales with HP, and Taric is a tanky man, so the shield will consume a whole lot of damage, which can turn a fight in your favor.

Eye of the Aspect
Eye of the Aspect is a must have as it is the only item that gives you the possiblity to use Stealth Wards. It is also a support item that fits Taric quite well, because of it's passive that splits gold between you and your adc and additionally heals both of you for a rather small amount of health.
Oracle Alteration
This item is what you are looking to get when you hit lvl 9. It is an upgraded Sweeping Lens.

You will want to max Bastion first, as it gives you and your adc extra armor in lane, and the shield also becomes stronger, which is important in the early game. If you play against a lane with a lot of poke you can mix your Starlight's Touch and Dazzle maxing as it gives you the opportunity to skill what is needed. Max Dazzle second as it gives you the opportunity to trade efficiently in lane. Max Starlight's Touch last. The heal is important, but the mana cost is too high in the early game, where you should be able to spam Starlight's Touch as an auto attack reset, which is relly great because of the damage dealt by Bravado.
