Threats & Synergies
you can counter his engage in teamfights with your ult or solari so no real prob
He can win the game by outroaming you rly easy, but if you make good pings and tell your team where he is its not hard to play against him
idk where the counterplay is, he also destroys your shield with his ult. I think you just need to surivive laningphase and then you are fine
he is just bad champ in general, except he plays a combo like lucian braum
dont like him, and got massivly overbuffed
bad champ, but on midlane he has so much dmg to oneshot you, on support he is basicly useless against you, just wait for lvl 4
dodge, or live with standing afk in turret, and mute your adc because he will flame you no matter what you do.
she has a root and a slow and gives her allies ms, all of that counters you, but the buffs and dmg he deals are like nothing worth. Only her Root is preety strong but thats all in the mid and late game she is so useless she could be afk.
STUN STUN STUN STUN
Taric in ranged and in bad. Statisticly she counters taric extremly hard, but i never lost against a lulu as taric. I think lulu players have mostly no brain or just missplay all if she statisticly counters taric so hard
annoying af but she is not that much of a threat
he makes so much dmg like blitzcrank and also heals himself and has poke and engage, rly unbalanced champ, but in mid late game you can beat his teamfight potential.
atleast nobody plays her, but theoreticly the makes you useless because her anti stun shield.
wait for lvl 4 and then kill him, only when he hits his hook on you he has a chance to win a 2vs2. When he hooks your adc it doesnt matter, because you need hp to counter all in them when he goes in.
you stack armor, he stacks lethality. anything more to say?
skill matchup tbh, but if you teamfight, your ult can make his ult useless. But on lane you should hard lose, except he is bad pyke.
rly big counter if he plays correctly, his teamfight is the best in the game with taric, but he outclasses taric a bit in teamfights so its rly hard to win against him.
hate this champ, same to ashe both perma slow you and you cant do anything xD. wait for jungler ganks or teamfights
every seraphine intet against me, so idk how good she rly is against taric. you must find it out yourself
same as pantheon
good ap dmg, because you stack more armor than mr, but he isnt rly strong on support so doesnt matter
counters your passive, but in teamfights you outclass him so hard he cant win
her E hurts my Head, but she is still not as powerfull as you
Her E counters your kit, her Q counters also your kit and her W heals more than your Q. She is much stronger in lane and even in late game. But if your team has somekind of engage like zac or malphite you can easily win against her.
dodge his E and you are fine, dont dodge it and you are dead
lvl 4 you outclass him or atleast lvl 6
depends on the thresh skills if he counters you or not
too much ap dmg + ultra high range + slows and knockup, she hard counters you
Obvious reasons for this
If she press R you can R into her R, so she cant die in her ult and you have taric ult after kindred ult, insane right?
she can just dash with your E into the enemys
same like samira
same like samira
you can land your stun like 100%
when he engages, he knockups, into taunt, and then you can do your stun to heavy stun combo enemys
sona taric botlane, still works, but seraphine is prob better than sona
look on sona
idk if she is still viable on adc but she is one of the strongest adcs for you
kasia ult + taric ult goes BRRRR
Champion Build Guide
Enjoy the guide!
If you have questions look at the notes i made, and if you have still questions ask me on my discord server: https://discord.gg/5E9zFFU
HERE YOU GO!
Taric has extreme teamfight sustain trough his Q and W and can flip fights completly with his R.
He has a huge powerspike with 2 items and is rly rly strong then.
Your adc cant literally die or your carry, if you peel him with all you got.
He can only die if he feeds intentional and missplays.
But that actually doesnt happen so often as you may think.
If you enjoy champs like Rakan Lulu Tahmkench and bouncing around your ADC and trying to peel him as hard as possible this champ is rly good for you.
[*] One of the Strongest Ults ingame
[*] Reliable healing and shielding
[*] still usefull from behind
[*] insane scalling
[*] good early/midgame dmg
[*] Weak early
[*] weak laningphase
[*] needs long fights to be 100% usefull
[*] needs much mana
[*] needs 2 items for his powerspike
[*] Can get kitted rly easily
Basicly: You have your Passive Called Bravado:
Its the most important thing in your Kit, because your Q cooldown relies on this passive. That means basicly, when you use your passive autoattacks, your Cooldown of your basic abilitys goes down by 1 second. Your Q has 1.6 seconds cooldown, but only generates stacks every 15 seconds. So if you do 2 autoattacks, your first autoattack will make the cooldown of your Q to 0 seconds and make the ability basicly up again. BUT if you autoattack twice you get a second stack on your Q instantly, and if you dont use your Q again and use your W and 2 autoattacks instead, you will get 4 stack on your Q and can make the double amount of healing instead of only 2 charges, but you can only have 4 charges if you have 4 points in your Q (one charge per skillpoint in it).
Bravado (your Passive):
INNATE: After casting an ability, Taric's next two basic attacks within 4 seconds gain Attack speed icon.png 100% total attack speed, each dealing 25 − 93 (based on level) (+ 15% bonus armor) bonus magic damage and reducing the Cooldown reduction icon.png cooldowns of his basic abilities by 1 second, as well as refreshing Bravado's duration on the first attack.
Starlight's Touch (your Q)
EFFECT RADIUS: 325CAST TIME: 0.25COST: 70 / 80 / 90 / 100 / 110 MANA + ALL CHARGESCOOLDOWN: 3RECHARGE: 15
PASSIVE: Taric stores a charge of Starlight's Touch periodically, up to a maximum at once. Bravado Bravado empowered attacks grant one charge.
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
ACTIVE: Taric Heal power.png heals himself and all nearby allied champions for 30 (+ 20% AP) (+ 1% of Taric's maximum health) per stored charge at the time of cast, up to a maximum of 150 (+ 100% AP) (+ 5% of Taric's maximum health) at 5 charges.
Bastion: (your W)
TARGET RANGE: 800TETHER RADIUS: 1300CAST TIME: 0.25COST: 60 MANACOOLDOWN: 15
PASSIVE: Taric gains Armor icon.png bonus armor and forms a Focused Resolve.png tether between him and the ally last targeted by Bastion. While the tether persists, the ally also gains the bonus armor and Taric's abilities are mimicked to them, though the effects do not stack.
10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14% of Taric's armor
ACTIVE: Taric Hybrid resistances icon.png shields himself and the target allied champion for 2.5 seconds, blessing them with the Bastion link.
8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12% of target's maximum health
Taric can self-cast Bastion to shield himself, or to the nearest untethered ally in range. Only one champion can be tethered at a time, and selecting a new ally overrides the previous tether.
Dazzle (your E)
TARGET RANGE: 575COLLISION RADIUS: 70CAST TIME: NONECOST: 60 MANACOOLDOWN: 17 / 16 / 15 / 14 / 13
ACTIVE: Taric projects a beam of starlight in the target direction, erupting after a 1 second delay, dealing magic damage to all enemies hit and Stun icon.png stunning them for 1.25 seconds.
90 / 130 / 170 / 210 / 250 (+ 50% AP) (+ 50% bonus armor)
Cosmic Radiance (your Ultimate)
EFFECT RADIUS: 400CAST TIME: 0.25COST: 100 MANACOOLDOWN: 180 / 150 / 120
ACTIVE: Taric calls upon the heavens, summoning a star above him that descends down over 2.5 seconds, afterwards bestowing Taric and all nearby allied Champion icon.png champions with cosmic energy, rendering them invulnerable for 2.5 seconds.
They are pretty pretty easy to do:
(AA = Autoattack)
1. Combo: The Long Full Combo in Full length
E AA AA Q AA AA W AA AA R AA AA Q AA AA Q AA AA
You cast your E as engage/stun and then most of time use your Q because enemys already dealt dmg to you, but when you full hp maybe wait for them doing dmg and then Q, except early game then you should use your early game dmg as Taric and smack them. But if you are in mid/late game, wait for them doing dmg.
And you should always try to save your W to bind to another teammate, but if no teammate except your adc/carry is there, you should just shield him.
Most of time you cant use this combo but that would be your full potential.
Just try to use Q always after you did atleast 2 Bravado AA, because without using it, your Q wont get up fast and does like 0 healing.
Now i will talk about my Runes and why i take these:
First of all you Take Guardian because it help you and somebody else to survive much longer than they should (and everything else is bad in comparison).
Second you Take Font of Life because it heals your teammates if they damage an enemy who got stunned by you. Shield bash and demolish are completly useless against font of life.
As third rune in the Resolve tree you take Second Wind or Conditioning.
You take Second wind in most matchups because will mostly play against ranged champs on botlane, but if you play against a tanky support like nautilus or tahmkench you could play conditioning, because you anyway outscale them, and with that you outscale them even harder.
And now the last Rune out of the Resolve tree:
Here you take Revitalize for obvious Reasons.
It buffs your Healing and Shielding you Receive and the one your teammates get.
Now we come to the secondary tree which is the precision tree:
The only 2 Rune choices we have here a Presence of mind and Legend Tenacity.
Why do you take Presence of Mind instead of the inspiration tree and take the Biscuit Delivery?
It is actually better for the laningphase than Presence of Mind could ever be,but you need the 15% mana on takedowns or you cant take long teamfights, which is your strongest point in the game.
You take Legend Tenacity, because you can use it also (and there is also nothing better in the Presicion tree)
Janna: Slow, gives allies movementspeed and attack damage and also can knockup you and knock you away.
Senna: She also slows you permanently, also on adc rly big pain in the ***.
Zilean: 99% slow XDDD
Samira: she is just rly rly op but doesnt counter your champ that hard because she walks in melee range, but if she is paired with Leona or nauti, you could consider dodging the game.
Ashe: you cant move on her or away from her and you are basicly dead all time.
I always ban Ashe because she is rly strong and it doesnt depend on a specific supporter. Samira needs the right supporter to be op. And zilean and janna are never played in my games.
If you dont want to ban Ashe you can also ban Senna because she is basicly doing the same.
