it's not instant though. (still broken but not instant)

I played a game against a taric earlier and the fact it wasn't instant ****ed over a couple people he was trying to protect multiple times. I'll attribute this to him being recently reworked so Im sure people will get used to it soon but as of now, that is my observation.

You can't just "get used" to a 2.5 seconds cooldown, there's almost no prediction involved since people can see the ult coming for days. It deals with delayed burst, good engages that didn't instantly bone your entire team or helps your team capitalize on a good engage without fear. I mean, if a Karthus casts his ult and you follow with Taric ult your team mates will still die before the invincibility procs :3

Actually you'd have 0.5s to react, which is pretty doable. Taric ult isn't really a "bait and surprise" tool. It's more of a brute force spell to let your allies go extra ham or buy them some time to reposition if they're taking focus.
Thanks to Jovy for the sig!

You have to cast it right when he dies, I think that time frame is big enough.
********'s a pretty good fertilizer

Taric ult is a huge Tristana **** block apparently, since he has plenty of time to make it ignore her E explosion, and also your auto-attacks on invulnerable enemies don't count towards stacking Explosive Charge, so it's impossible to reset her W through her E if Taric clicks ult.

as far as getting used to taric ult it's about knowing when to use it and not trying to pop it last second to save people or something. Also how far into advance you might want to use it.

yes there is a "getting used to it" just not the way you are trying to argue it.

Taric's stun is pretty powerful but other than that I haven't had any problems playing against him. His ult seemed decent to me but not broken, definitely much less annoying than Kindred's ult. Maybe they just haven't gotten used to play him yet but who knows.
Thanks to FatelBlade, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, TheNamelessBard, GrandmasterD, aviseras and koksei for the awesome signatures

I personally didn't notice him being too strong in lane either (minus getting ****ed by that ult cheese when I didn't realize the interactions with Tristana), but the first game I played after the patch, our support was asking for us to pick it for him but our first pick didn't have him, then the enemy team picked him. Then he went and crushed bot lane, repeatedly cleaning up 1v2 whenever they managed to kill his ADC.

So now I just ban him just in case.

he takes no damage and has an AoE kayle ult; ya he's ****ing broken


When his ult is up, sure he takes no damage. But when it's not, he's pretty squishy for a "tank" until he's able to build up several items. His heal and shield are balanced around healing and shielding multiple people, so they're quite weak when applied to just one person. He has no mobility skills, so he's easy to kite or gank. Really, I think the best way to handle him is to punish him early.
