Summoner Spells Back to Top

I always take 4.png and 3.png , but 4.png + 14.png looks useful too if you wanna get some early kills or playing against hard sustain champs like 75.png16.pngor 8.png . Especially if your mid/top laners prefers do not take 14.png. Exhaust gives me more advantage in late game than ignite.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Pretty standart for tanky supports masteries. 

  • As i said before, movement speed is really important on 44.png, thats why we should take Wanderer and Explorer. 
  • 44.png has sustain, thats why Runic armor is better choice. Or maybe because Riots nerfs Veteran's Scars to the ground.
  • Unyielding is best choice for all tanky supports. Especially if you gonna take 30 armor in runes.
  • 15% tenacity looks much more better for me than Legendary Guardian becuase there is no items except 3111.png that gives it.
  • Bond of Stone will helps you to protect your teammates, so you can die for them and give them a chance to shittalk you for feeding kappa.png
  • WTF! why Dangerous Game instead of Bandit??? Bandit is good for poke supports like 25.png or 37.png, dangerous game is better for all tanks ( 89.png , 201.png ). You cannot poke as 44.png so you will not have a lot of gold for that, and passive gold bonus is really shitty at this point. Dangerous game gives me solid advantage in late game because it restores a lot of HP for each assist i get in teamfights.

  • Maxing shatter.png gives you more passive armor, protects your ADC too and gives you more damage in early game. But if you gonna play vs AP matchup, max E first and Q second instead. But again, i prefer do not pick 44.png vs AP team comp at all.
  • Always take E at lvl 1 and Q at lvl 2 because of early ganks. 
  • Some people maxing Q second. I prefer to have more stun duration and lesser CD in mid-game than heal, which is still looks weak at this moment. In late game, when you will stack a lot of HP, your heal will be pretty solid. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Start with
    After first back take Targon's brace and sightstone. dont forget to change your trinket!
    i prefer swifties over other boots cause of low price and MS bonus

Core Items

    My core items. I always take this stuff. Other 3 slots are situational and totally depends on matchup. But make sure that you takes at least 30% CDR
    Take one or this. FH is better if you have more that 1 aa-based enemy
    NEVER take that shit
    You already provides a lot of armor for your team for free. Why dont you give them some MR too? But sometimes you can skip it.
    My final build

Situational Items

    Problems with pushing? Sometimes my team just refuses to take towers. then i grab some ZZ'rot and do some pressure on the lanes!
    Need MR? Take Banshees vs hard initiators like Malphite/Amumu or if enemy AP carry is overfed
    vs hard AA-based team (Jax top, Yi jg and stuff like that). I prefer Frozen Heart over Thornmail
    VS really hard targets.
Items i find useless for Taric:
3050.png - Its so easy for your ADC to get 60-80% crit change after Riots buffed most of AS/Crit items, and you dont really need this AP bonus. This item was nerfed to the ground.
3800.png - Righteous Glory was also nerfed so many times and now nobody buy that shit. If you need more MS - 3742.png and 1306.png is pretty enough at this point. 
3068.png - we have only slots and there are a lot of more useful items than sunfire cape.

  • Zyra

VS

Annie

Medium

Almost same strategy as 25.png matchup. 

Smart Annie player will play really passive and will try go get lvl 6 as fast as possible. After he gets it, expect that he gonna Flash+Tibbers right into your ADC's face. So ask for a ganks before 6. Try to position yourself that Annie cannot stun both of you with Tibbers.
Max Q first, and after she'll use her combo, heal ADC with imbue.png  with Windspeaker, stun enemy ADC and go back. 

VS

Brand

Medium

Almost same as Morgana. Max Q first,  build HP and MR and its gonna be okay. Ask for a ganks. Brand is really squishy, so you can tilt him with early ganks

VS

Morgana

Hard

Just dodge that game. If this Morgana is not boosted charcoal 6 player, she makes you useless in this whole match.

 
"BUT I CANNOT DODGE! I'M IN MY PROMOS FROM BRONZE TO SILVER!!1"
Okay, then:
  1. Take 0-18-12 masteries with 45% CDR and windspeaker's blessing;
  2. Max Q first, W second;
  3. Try do avoid 25.png poke with tormentedsoil.png and thunderlords because she can exhaust you during whole laning phase, make you lose mana.. and here comes jungler.
  4. If your ADC is poke champion ( 15.png 81.png ) remind him to poke them :) )
  5. Purchase 2043.png after first back and place it into tribush. 
  6. Force your ADC to use trinkets too. Use your chat, ping him... make this lazy ass to use his free trinket during the whole laning phase! Botlane should be warded whole time.
If you survive laning phase and do not let enemy ADC and Jungler to snowball, its gonna be okay. Ward map, especially near objectives, protect your carries. Try to juke blackshield.png and use your stun after this. 
If i have to play vs Taric i picks Morgana and punish him for taking my champ without permission.

VS

Zilean

Medium

Almost same as Morgana. Max Q first,  build HP and MR and its gonna be okay. Ask for a ganks. Zilean is really squishy, so you can tilt him with early ganks

VS

Zyra

Medium

Almost same as Morgana. Max Q first,  build HP and MR and its gonna be okay. Ask for a ganks. Zyra is super squishy, so you can tilt her with early ganks. 

Why Taric? Back to Top

Since pre-season starts and still now meta is pretty AD. Its not a surprize right now to see 104.png , 133.png or other ADC top/mid/jg because they are really strong. Also Riots buff AD-assasins like 91.png or 107.png by giving them new item - 3147.png . So right now like 80% players use AD champions on any role. And looks like it will continues to summer 2016, when riots gonna rework a lot of mages. 

Thats why 44.png looks really, really good right now - he is perfect pick for AD vs AD team: you'll give armor to your team and destroy enemy team's armor by your shatter.png . also you have heal, stun and AD/AP buff for your team! What a nice champion! 
His ult, tarichammersmash.png is free objectives for your team, so as Taric you always want to take some objectives. 
Also Riots keep nerfing a lot of support champion like 40.png 16.png or 12.png, but Taric dont get nerfs... for now.

A little about me Back to Top

Hello guys!

  • My name is Alex and i am from Russia, Volgograd (you know about battle of Stalingrad, right? :) ) 
  • I play League since season 4 and im pretty casual player. 
  • I dont have a good mechanical skill, so champions like 76.png ,60.png or 126.png looks kinda difficult for me to play. 
  • I enjoy playing support and prefer this role over all other roles in MMORPG or MOBAs. 
  • I played a lot of Lineage 2 before as support (Evas Saint) but gets tired of this.
  • I working as freelanser and website developer.
  • My favorite Taric skin is Emerald.
  • I really hope that my guide can help you to climb on higher elo and carry your teammates to higher elo!
