This is pretty much what I had in mind

Again, not sure if it's feasible/possible, but I think he's a great opportunity for crystalline growths coming from socketed gems. That's just one idea in the pot at the moment though and my personal preference.

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?
It must be made of gems and it must be outrageous.

Dude, my personal preference: Even during idle, his hair still blows in the wind.

I've never played Taric. Even when he was a dominant support for a couple patches.

Just because I don't like the way he looks. Am I shallow? Maybe.
I'm considering picking him up based on the proposed changes so far.

Can 'Dazzle' involve Taric manmode throwing his hammer at the target? The swirly light thing doesn't really do it for me. I like my support engages to be a little more visceral.

We have total faith in you, Iron!
He should realistically only have a sword if you make him more brawler/bruiser-Esque IMO.

No, I don't think that makes you shallow. A car might be a complete monster under the hood, but if it looks like a rusted bucket from the outside, would you still want to street race it?

That's our goal anyway on Relaunch. Bring love and care to champions who are memorable and fun but not the best looking at the moment.
