So i was duo-queing with a friend, we were last picks. And i and him was gonna play support-ad. Enemy already picked caitlyn+taric, so we knew **** was gonna be hard..
He picked sivir cuz spell-shield and i picked sona, and was just about to lock her in, until suddenly! I thought if i take GP we can completely shut down the Stun-shatter-trap combo.
I took GP and we crushed the invincible lane. We gone out with a 3-kill advantage and at least 50 CS advantage. All this was while being camped by the enemy udyr, which just couldn't catch us cuz my speedbuff. ZOMG!

Caitlyn + Taric was good like 10 patches ago
The stun/trap combo doesn't even work anymore unless you actually put down a trap as the stun is flying, which requires the enemy AD to completely derp out for 2 seconds
Sivir + anything would probably crush that lane all day

Caitlyn taric is still a strong lane, and even with a sivir u're forced to play passively for 20 seconds after popping the bubble. If u play sivir GP, u have 2 "anti-stuns" and will MAX have 10 seconds where passive play is forced. It's a complete counter and so stronk!

What combo beats a taric-caitlyn. Sivir is a counter yeap, so is gp.. But apart from thoose 2 champions, what lane combo on bot does not get wrecked by Taric-caitlyn?

Sivir absolutely destroys Caitlyn as everyone mentioned. Otherwise just pick a support like Soraka or Sona. Soraka always irritates the hell out of me when I play Caitlyn because she negates all of my harass, which is pretty much the only reason to pick Caitlyn in the first place these days.

Cait + Taric cannot chain their stuns anymore and they don't do enough burst damage to kill someone in the duration of Taric's stun. Maybe I'm biased because I hate Taric and think he's a terrible support though.

Saaaay whaat.. Taric & Caitlyn.. I'm.. speechless. Ain't seen that duo for time. Point being Caitlyn is pretty much out of her depth among other AD carries and that pub-stomping combo is even older then the whole Vayne+ Alistar fiasco.


What combo beats a taric-caitlyn. Sivir is a counter yeap, so is gp.. But apart from thoose 2 champions, what lane combo on bot does not get wrecked by Taric-caitlyn?


Ummm, where to start?

Sona/ Graves
Soraka/ Graves
Soraka/ Ashe

Haven't tried the following but willing to bet that they would give them a run for their money.

Kog'Maw/ Janna
Kog'Maw/ Nunu
Tristana/ Nunu
Miss Fortune/ Sona
Corki/ Soraka
Kennen/ Sona (lol)

Theres too many, just tag Sona onto some random AD range carry in most cases and Soraka kit as mentioned above naturally counters the combo in having a burst heal with a bonus armor buff and silence against Taric to deny a stun or any extra damage with a flash combo. Unlimited Health/Mana sustain being the essence which Taric doesn't have and would be eventually forced to either melee for mana having the two consequences of taking poke and pushing the lane or just stand back acting passive fiddling with your thumbs. Also, her passive is an extra bonus against his damage.

Well... Maybe i'm just stupid thinking it's a strong lane. And what is this whole "can't chain their stuns anymore"?

Sona/ Graves don't know, i do not think so though.
Soraka/ Graves yeah, if not caught early, this lane is gonna outsustain cait taric, but cait taric should kill them early.
Soraka/ Ashe Ehhhrm why?

Haven't tried the following but willing to bet that they would give them a run for their money.

Kog'Maw/ Janna Ehhrm.. pretty sure that this lane is gonna be killed. Also 0 sustain.
Kog'Maw/ Nunu Not a too strong lane.
Tristana/ Nunu What oO?
Miss Fortune/ Sona Okay i see where this lane is going, but both sona and MF are gonna run out of mana and they arent gonna be that strong.
Corki/ Soraka I know this is very strong, and can probably win over a taric caitlyn in the harrass game, taric caitlyn has bigger kill-potential over all in lane though.
Kennen/ Sona (lol) Troloolololol.
