    Short summary describing this character.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Overview

    There is a magic, long forgotten by many, the magic of the earth, of gems. Taric's father was an excellent healer, and Taric was genuinely interested in his father's pursuits, even from a very young age. But soon enough, Taric had exhausted his father's extensive library and set off on his own. He was not to be a healer, but a defender, using the magic of the earth to protect.

    Strategies

    • If Taric targets himself with Imbue, he'll be healed for more. As a result, he's very effective at tanking turrets.
    • Use Taric's ultimate, Radiance during pushes or team fights to boost the damage of your teammates.
    • Taric's ultimate also affects minions which can be a great way to push through an enemy inhibitor or turret.
    • Teaming Taric and Sivir together make a very effective pushing team.
    • Chalice of Harmony is an excellent item on Taric as it allows him to keep his ult on longer.
    • One of the best ways to itemize Taric is to stack auras; Aegis of the Legion, Soul Shroud , and Stark's Fervor are three items you want to get on Taric.
    • As Taric's base armor is already high thanks to his Shatter, Mercury Thread's a good item to grab on him since he will often be the focus target in teamfights. The magic resist also helps him as his starting magic resist is very low.

    Trivia

    • Taric's joke is a reference to the 80's cartoon "Jem" intro.

    • In Taric's Skin pictures, he wields his shield in his right hand and his hammer in his left hand, while in-game, it is the opposite.

    Taric brings forth earthen energy to heal a nearby ally and himself for 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 ( 1.1 per ability power). If Taric heals only himself, the heal will be 40% more effective. Melee attacks on enemies decrease this spell's cooldown by 2 seconds per hit.
