Another thing - His attacks need to have an Ike feel to them. Meaty, heavy attacks. He's bedazzling your face in, it needs to feel like it.

And I chose Ike, because I think their faces look kind of similar.

@Ironstylus I'd like to see something unique for his shield. I was thinking, what if he had a small buckler made of gems on his shield arm. As you level up shatter, crystals grow outward from it larger and larger until at rank 5 it's a massive, sturdy, sparkling kite-shield. Then, when he uses shatter, he slams the shield into the ground and it shatters outward and returns to the buckler state while on cooldown?

Also, the entirety of his armor gems should glow when he uses dazzle.

And, if you wanted to still do the whole two-handed hammer deal, perhaps when he uses his ultimate his hammer and shield combine into a massive mace to represent the bonus stats he grants? Just a thought, and it would make it easier to tell that Taric is in his ultimate.

IronStylus, please leave Taric alone, ALL of the VU's recently have been meh. You can't tell me Garen or Yi look better now then before? Huge bodys with weird animations and sword holding as they run. PLEASE leave Taric alone. He's fabulous the way he is.

Flashier effects, more sparkles. Dude should be so fabulous and manly that he makes men question their sexuality

This is what I imagine his Shatter should look like.

overall all he needs is a better quality model and animations and pink spell effects for fifth age.

If one of Taric's emotes doesn't involve him flashing jojo poses, I will be a sad person.

Audio terms, he talks about gems. Opals, rubys, sapphires, emeralds. Why not stuff like Topaz? Lapis Lazulli? Amethyst? Or all the other birth stones?

Personally, don't use the Reddit feature.
