So, I've been playing AD Taric for a while now, with mostly the same items each game, except for a few countermeasures, and I must say, I'm surprised of what he can do. The thing is, playing him AP wastes a lot of potential IMO, he doesn't do much damage late-game, and the AP bonus he gains from his ultimate is the same even though we go AP or AD. The thing is, AD Taric is a whole other story. Several times now, I've been able to support at incredible rates, simply because they underestimate his incredible damage output, only stopping to let my carry take the kill at the last moment.

My build goes like this:

Items: Doran's Blade > Mercury's Treads > Aegis of the legion > Frozen mallet > Frozen Heart > Trinity Force > Atma's Impaler

Runes: Armor pen marks > Flat Armor seals > Scaling Magic resist glyphs > Flat health quints

Masteries: 21/9/0, with full AD in offense, and Veteran's scars in defense. I take a point in Summoner's Resolve in defense, and Summoner's Wrath in offense too.

Summoner Spells: Cleanse and Ghost.

Wanna try it out and give me feedback? I've been successful with it, maybe you will too?

Yes, that's the idea, he would function just as well as a support. Remember, his stun is a good gapcloser, and the Frozen Mallet will keep them in place. Once you get Trinity Force, you can even deal some serious damage.

It's good because his ultimate gives him bonus AD and AP, which, if used before his W, can result in a higher burst from AP, but also a tremendous bonus to AD, which is heavily underestimated. Besides, last time I played tanky AP, once I used my combo, it annoyed me how I could not do anything to help my team out. This item build helps me constantly slow their carry so my team can rip them apart, and I can actually deal higher consistent damage than any AP build could. The heal isn't so bad either, because of the cooldown-on-hit effect on it.

Not continuing the above nonsense...

Ontopic, it's counterproductive to have both Frozen Mallet and Trinity Force in the same build.
Also starting Doran's Blade isn't that great if you are indeed playing support, mana would be a huge issue if your opponents have a stronger lane presence.
