I was quite distraught hearing about the "nerf" to Radiance, but I am here to say that Taric actually got buffed, BY ALOT.

Imbue heals for more now. I can essentially keep myself and lane partner alive forever simply due to this. This was an amazing replacement for radiance because it is a burst heal. I have saved many teammates' butts by getting a last second heal on them.

Radiance: This was NOT nerfed. If anything, this is a huge buff. The biggest problem I had playing Taric was either, use my skills or use Radiance. Radiance had such a mana drain that keeping it on for more than a couple seconds made me nothing more than a meat shield. While the buff doesn't heal teammates anymore, the buff to Imbue more than makes up for it. In addition, it still gives teammates the damage buff, AND it has less mana drain, so I can pop that during a teamfight, stun, shatter, imbue, and STILL have mana left to be useful.

I thought this would ruin my favorite Fuzzy Boot Taric, but I am loving him more than ever now.

On a side note: Garen+Taric lane=unstoppable.

yeah...no hes nerfed. who cares about a slightly slower mana drain. any good taric player can manage his mana just fine. big whoop you get to use your ult a few more seeconds. not having a 300-500 aoe healing durring a team fight is a nerf.

I agree with Xano74. I am winning games not dying at all or only dying once with the new Taric. He's amazing.

Just because you didn't know how to properly manage your mana usage before with Radiance doesn't make the changes a big buff.

New Taric is pretty ****. It just hurts me inside not being able to save Ignite or DoT victims or otherwise low HP people with my Radiance anymore. Also losing that extra OOMPH! 1.5k+ HP overall heal in group fights sounds like a pretty big a nerf to me.

Also lets not forget that he pretty much lost one AP scaling spell too. The AP rate might not have been that good but he still lost one more reason to get AP as Taric since he lost a spell that gains from AP.

I believe I read some guys math on the differences of the old Taric and the new Taric. According to his math, (which I expect to be pretty accurate) he lost quite a lot of his healing power overall.

I will continue Taric as his furry boots increases his power ten fold but it deeply saddens me that he was nerfed. I think he was just fine the way he was. I expect I will get a few thumb downs now because I enraged the people that got unlucky and got hammered in the face by one of the few good Taric players. My current stats on Taric are 64 wins and 34 losses. So the wins are around double the amount of losses. I doubt it will stay even that decent after this patch.

Ewwww, no... The old Radiance was abusive and that's why it got NERFED.

Ask a high ELO player about the old Radiance and you'll see -.-

Could we get any high ELO Taric's thoughts on this? I'm mid ELO myself so I don't count.
