Hi IronStylus, I was thinking that taric could use his hammer with both hands, then when he activates his crystal shield it would begin to grow on his arm, (similar to lissandras ice around her legs) then he can smash it and he would go back to holding his hammer with two hands.

That and the 3D model someone linked.

They're both good options, I guess it depends where we want to take him. Should he be an armored knight that likes gems? Or literally have his armor made of crystal? Or something totally different?
IS. You should be going full on crystal armour. In addition, as a cool particle effect, while ulting, it should change colours through the colours of gems that are in his VO lines.

He should have armor made out of the carapace of Skarner's kind.

This is a good idea!

With the exception of the triangle feet I rather like his current general design so I hope it doesn't deviate too much from the armor adorned with a superfluous amount of gems on the shoulders look. It would be nice if his aa animations/sound assets had some more weight to them too.

He definitely needs to keep his weapon a hammer, though I suppose a suitably ornate mace might be acceptable. Perhaps, if model mutations aren't too much of a pain, have using Shatter cause his model's shield to shatter and have him switch to a two-hand hold on his hammer until the armor bonus returns.


Also, I know it's not your department but he could really use some more mana regen. When his passive changed the design team kind of forgot that his old passive was making up the difference for his base regen being insanely low on a character who primarily functions through skill use.

As long as you get William Shatner to voice him, I don't care what you do.

He needs to, at the very minimum, have a crystal shield be his identifier.

He's already wielding a 2 handed hammer... he's just wielding it with one hand.

Taric is pretty strong.

Why not have him use hammer + shield normally and completely shatter the shield during his ultimate going into two-handed stance? Seems appropriate.
