Building a more fabulous Taric ?
 
I have come to like Taric in Dominion ( don't know why, he is almost never played .. maybe thats why >.< )

However I am at a loss for what to consistently build beyond Aegis ( i consider it core )

I am also really liking Zeke's ( Stark's replacement ) and don't mind grabbing it.. hp + cdr + lifesteal/as auras are all useful on him.

The biggest problem I find with him is almost no ability to 1v1 ( now I don't expect to consistently win 1v1s, but I do like actually inflicting damage )

I have tried Ionic Spark, which is nice for defending points against multiple enemies ( chain lightning interrupt ftw ) .... but doesnt really increase his damage output a whole lot

trinity force is too expensive and i dont consider it a real option ( i build zeke's/aegis first so trinity would be really late )

Anyone have suggestions ( and some solid proof / reasoning behind it ) ? Thanks

I've played vs some very mean AP / CD Tarics. Give that a try.

build Kitae's on him, AD taric is far more useful than Aura Taric on DOminion and the CS aura already counters aegis.
Kitae's Frozen Mallet, Atma's, thr other 3 depend on who's the enemy.

edit: well at least That's the taric build that's given me most trubles :$, Aurra taric never game me troubles besides the stun when one of his allies was nearby.
Edit 2: Ap Tarics are also good but they need to shatter the shield way too often for my taste, and that together with the crystal scar aura can make a tanky champion drop into a squihlet.

Solid proof?, why? you already own Taric just experiment, i know your Elo may take some kick in the nuts but it's for the sake of playing something ehrr, someone you Enjoy.

Not really and you don't have enough Dom experience to really speak

I think building him aura/tank is the way to go, though I've only done it once.

Open Boots Kindlegem

Aegis, Mercs, Frozen Heart, Kindlegem (build into a Hexteck Sweeper if they have stealth at some point, or maybe a Soul Shroud if your team needs it), Wits End and something else.

Wit's end seems weird, but I actually like it on him. It gives him a bit of damage, MR and helps lower the CD on his heal.


This build worked great in that one game, but I really can't say what to build in general.

I haven't tried the new Zeke's on him, but it could be quite nice indeed.

I had mild success with black cleaver starks, back before the armor reduction was removed (stacking with his shatter reduction = a lotta armor gone). Not sure which way I would go now - gonna have to play him some more.

I find Nashor's ight have potential. Auto Attacking with taric is about refreshing the heal at light speed and CDR and AP are welcome stats. Heck, I find myself sometimes needing mana when I play taric too so MP5 isn't all that wasted either.

removal of starks ruined my taric build =(

+1 for aura tank

I played him heaps around x-mas and new years. It's great when you team up with a vayne. But not sure how new starks fervor is going to affect my build/play style.

Move speed quints, boots of mobility. Roaming aura tank. don't 1v1 any1, just run to where u need to be and give out aura's stuns and heals. debuff armour with w, and old starks :(
attk speed marks & heal & exhaust

Also most of the aura items and build order a situational.

hextech sweeper is great for checking bushes and stealth,
frozen heart is a must against vayne or trynd
soul shround & WOTA are great for friendly AP carries
I used to rush starks if vayne or ad carries were doing well.
