And next patch he is getting nerfed. It may not be a huge nerf but it will help contain him a bit.

Taric is incredible for solo queue

however the pros are better at high skill supports that work well with team coordination (sona ult, alistar, etc)

Taric is still great, and imho OP as all hell

Trust me, our live design dudes are very much aware of Win Nao. There's a bunch of changes being tested on PBE, but overall what it boils down to is we're reducing base damages and increasing E and R cooldowns to reduce the amount of burst he gets even while building tanky. If that doesn't work we can adjust further.

What items? People are rushing a locket of the iron solari on him. That isn't exactly new.

what about xin top? he is already okay/mediocre there and this just makes him useless top. Why do you not nerf like his dash range and clear speeds instead of just blatantly ruining the champion for everyone just because people jungle him?

That's cool, just please, PLEASE, promise me you won't avalanche him with nerfs like you did in S1-S2 before his rework.

Never forget eve-tier Xin...
