Threats & Synergies
Who are you
Fancy details:Galio's next basic attack is periodically modified to deal 12 - 80 (based on level) (+ 100% AD) (+ 40% AP) (+ 40% bonus magic resistance) total magic damage to its target and all enemies around it.
Colossal Smash's cooldown is reduced by 4 seconds every time Galio hits a new enemy champion with an ability.
Fancy details:Galio fires two windblasts that arc to either side before converging to the target area, dealing magic damage to all enemies they pass through.
When the blasts meet, the gusts form a tornado that advances for 1.5 seconds, dealing magic damage every 0.5 seconds to every enemy within, capped at 100 per hit against monsters.
Fancy Details:PASSIVE: Galio gains a shield that absorbs up to 8 - 23 (based on level)% maximum health magic damage, refreshing after not taking damage for 12 seconds.
FIRST CAST: Galio begins to charge over 2 seconds, slowing himself by 30%, reducing incoming damage and increasing Shield of Durand's Taunt icon taunt radius over the duration.
SECOND CAST: Galio taunts all nearby enemies for 0.5 - 1.5 (based on charge time) seconds, and refreshes its damage reduction for 2 seconds.
Shield of Durand cannot be interrupted by crowd control.
Shield of Durand's cooldown starts at the same time FIRST CAST starts.
Fancy Details:Galio briefly dashes backwards before charging forward, stopping upon hitting terrain or an enemy champion, dealing magic damage to all enemies hit and knocking them up for 0.75 seconds.
Fancy Details:Galio designates the target allied champion's location at the time of cast as his landing spot, channels for 1 second, and then dashes to them, reducing the damage they take until he lands.
Upon impact, Galio deals magic damage to all nearby enemies and knocks them up for 0.75 seconds, increased to 1.25 seconds at the center of the impact zone.
An easy matchup is one which you should usually win
a medium matchup is one which tends to be more skill based but can be won
a difficult matchup for you, expect to lose lane
Your best bet is to use a combo of both of these methods. Adapt based on the situation. If someone is splitting then don't let them split for free, either make an engage on the team or catch out the splitter. Galio requires alot of decision making and depending on the circumstances, you either make the most out of it or you just flat out fail.
I'll also be releasing a Nautilus build guide this coming summer as well as updating this one and making it prettier and such.
I hope you guys enjoy! Please leave comments and or questions (once school year hits it'll be harder to answer questions but i'll do my best) and if you liked the guide share it with your friends!
Thanks for cheering
