Taric Top for the belivers
between the beauties and the baddies (WIP not enough data collected to know all of the baddies nor beauties)
so, for some reason you want to play taric top, well this is gonna tell you how to do it well enough to take it to ranked. so here's the quick guide if you don't care about reading or understanding every little thing
Quick Taric Tank Top Build
Best Overall Build
so, why is taric top good? if played right you can be hyper opressive in lane and survivable, and after mastering the playstyle can almost always 1v2. taric top also beats a few ranged top laners, and can survive all of them. taric also has insane splitpush potential and just good tower damage in general being able to auto at 2.00 AS just spamming Q and E while attacking a turret. after the laning phase you become both a tank and a secondary support for your team, and if played right you're entire team can come into a fight invincible, balanced right? if you really want you can also roam with taric top, the thing about tarics stun is it will frequently cause people to move away from it... towards your friendly laner. in that case, if your friendly laner has CC, even something short like sylas e, that's a kill or the laner has to recall. hyper mobile champions like akali or bel'veth can utilize your power of friendship stun insanely well to allow you to reset it once again and crush your fleeing target with stun after stun.
Runes are very important, taking the wrong runes for taric top could ruin your game and reveal you as the inter you are
- Rune Page
Arcane comet will allow you for better trades using your E and manaflow is needed as you will quickly run through your mana if you're playing as opressive as you should be. you take armor runes because armor increases the damage of your passive and E, and revitalize for bad match ups and when lanes are close and you need that extra healing, the ability haste is so you can be just that opressive with your own cooldown resets on top of it.
- Skill Path
you want all your skills for your full combo to come into effect, which is E, aa x 2, w, aa x 2, E, aa x 2, q, aa x 2, and repeat.
with Q and E you have insane wave clear, press Q, auto auto, Q, auto auto, use e to hit an entire 3 minions, or just cannon to secure it
