[Season 12] Galio Support Guide

By SuperChicken144
Galio is a very fun champ and I like him in the mid-lane but I love his support even more. He is very powerful and you can carry the game buy their by one shot of the enemy or protect your ADC. He is a good support to play and help you rank up. I hope you have fun with it.

Abilites Order
Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Laning Phase Support
Galio can play the lane very differently depending on one what u build. In general, you are going to go for some poke and try to get a good all-in. When going tank you will try to go for all in most of the time. When you go AP you will do a lot of damage early but will get poked out more easily.

Roaming/ Hero's Entrance
When it comes to roaming to can really only do it at level 6. You can really gank almost anybody but it's the best when they can run into the enemy. Your Hero's Entrance is so powerful for roaming and late-game team fights. If you want to save your ADC your Hero's Entrance is very good for that.

COLOSSAL SMASH (Passive): This Passive is very fun and if going full ap you will one-shot people with it. The only annoying part about your passive is that using your support item can be very weird. It also scales with magic resist so it does do some damage when going tank.
WINDS OF WAR (Q): This is very good for early poke and if you go full ap you will be a monster against your ADC. Sadly not as good one tank becuse it dose very little damage.
SHIELD OF DURAND (W): Galio W is very important for the support role. It's a giant AOE taunt. This is also good because when you cast it you get armor and magic reduction. This is a big part of your team's fights.
JUSTICE PUNCH (E): This is your basic support engage all in. This is very powerful when going AP becuse its just free burst if you hit it.
HERO'S ENTRANCE (R): When it comes to late game and also roaming this it your best friend. This is a giant Uproot. This also gives the person you use it on a magic shield.

Galio works very well with Aftershock for many reasons. First of all, you are going to be on the enemy team. You are the engage on your team. Another reason is that you gain a lot of armor and magic resistance so when u are in the enemy team there is a low chance you will die. If you don't like Aftershock or into a poke lane you can also go Guardian. If you are going full Ap you can go Electrocute.
You can go all of the mini runes from this line. I personally think that Font of Life is the best. When u are fighting or even just in laning phase this is the good rune for healing your teammates. If you don't want to heal them and want protection you can go Shield Bash. This works amazing with Galio because of your AP shield from your Shield of Durand(W) passive.
I would go Bone Plating into all most every team in the bot lane. This is very good for poke when u are going for a fight. Conditioning is also very good because of the armor and magic resistance you gain from it. I think Second Wind is ok but not as good as the other runes.
Both Unflinching and Overgrowth are amazing on Galio the only thing is that it depends on that the enemy team is going. If the enemy is full of high crowd control like Leona and Shen you should go Unflinching. If they are not full of crowd control you would want to go Overgrowth.

When it comes to your Sorcery runes there is not that much debate on that you go. Manaflow Band is very good and helps with your laning phase. Nimbus Cloak is ok if want to run after using Flash or Ignite.
There are two things you can run here. These are Transcendence and Gathering Storm. Transcendence is very good and helpful with the ability haste. If you think you are going into the late game I recommend Gathering Storm.
With the double diamond, you get a lot of early Ap so you can get more early damage in. You can also go more attack speed but it's not that good in the late game and not necessary.

+ Alot of Crowd Control
+ Alot of damage if AP
+ Very powerful late game
+ Alot of armor and MR
+ Roaming potental
Galio is a very powerful support. He has an insane amount of Crowd Control. Your Hero's Entrance is the best example because it has a giant AOE Stun. If going AP you deal a lot of damage and if going tank you do not take any damage because of the **** ton of armor and magic resist. You also roam very well. Also the longer the game the more powerful you get.
- Better champs
- Support item bug
- True damage is bad
- CC is a counter
- Less gold then mid
There are not a lot of things that make Galio bad support. There are better champs like Leona and Swain who will destroy you in the lane. Also, there is a bug with the support item with Colossal Smash. Also, true damage and Crowd control will make you have no fun.

This is the one of the most resent items added to league and it is very good on tanks like Nautilus or Alistar. This is a cheap mythic that was the same item passive as old Abyssal Mask but better.
Building this has alot of beninfits. First it has armor which can help into most top laners. Also reduses lifesteal so poeple like Aatrox and Rengar can not heal as much.
3.Force of Nature
You are supposed to be a tank support so you have alot of CC. This reworked item now gives you a **** ton of magic resist. Also gives 20% Magic resist and movement spped which is helpful into champs like Kennen and Gwen.
4.Gargoyle Stoneplate
when it comes to a fun items gives alot of magic reist and armor. Also when you activate it you gain a gaint shield. This very good to last longer in fights.
5.Demonic Embrace
This item after the rework in season 12 is amazing. You have a desent amount of health so you also get a fair bit of ap. Also you get a mini Liandry's Anguish.


2.Plated Steelcaps
If you are fighting a heavy AD team or there is a fed AD god going these boots can safe you or let you live a little bit longer
2.Mercury's Treads
If you are fighting a heavy AP team or there is a fed AP god going these boots can safe you or let you live a little bit longer

Galio is very good with early engage ADC's, people like Kalista, Tristana and Kai'Sa are very good for your laning phase. Also if you want someone so can help you get your Hero's Entrance off you can always get an Orianna, Rell or Diana. These champs keep the enemy in your ultimate for a more powerful engage. When you are looking at Counters there are two main things you should find. True damage and Crowd control. People like Sett and Vayne will be the worst when it comes to true damage. When it comes to Crowd control it will be Leona and Zac. If anything Ban Morgana or Swain because **** them.

In Conclusion
This is fun support with many ways to play them. You can go Full AP and one-shot the enemy or even Full Tank and never die because of your armor and magic resistance. I personally like tank support because I'm a support main. I hope you love Galio support just as much I do.
