I suppose Taric could make somewhat of a viable Tank. But overall, I would prefer him to be Support. Those heals are so good. And I am also experimenting with him. He is quite a unique champion.

I only played him a few (3-4 games) games but I always build him physical dmg for mana restoration and some killing power,and AP for some power for his skills

I like Taric as a support/ secondary tank class. His heals are already pretty powerful on their own, so here's what I usually do.

Sheen
AP boots
Sunfire Cape

After that I switch my items up depending on what my team needs. If we need more heals then I get more AP and mana. If the primary tank needs help then I will get some more health.

Versatility is what makes Taric such an awesome character!

You almost can't go wrong with Taric's items. I would probably go philosopher's stone / berserker's boots / warmogs / nashor's tooth / guardian angel / trinity force.

Yeah, you can't go wrong with items for Taric. Just remember to keep attacking to get the heal cooldown!

I usually go chalice / sorc boots / banshee's / guardian / soul shroud / whatever. If the game keeps going I start selling the cheaper items and building the fancy stuff!

AP and Attack. HE can sustain himself with the heal, and his stun gets 1:1 AP bonus. Making it a quite good dammage spell too.

I love using him as a powerful lane pusher, his damage is really insane vs turrets.

I think you can be successful building him a lot of ways. I prefer dps builds.

Just watched a level 12ish Taric tank 4 members of my team for a LONG time, kind of ridiculous, any other tank wouldn't have survived, but he survived with just basic items and healing himself...it was an even game, we ended up winning, so its not like we were underleveld/itemed

I dont know it just seemed ridiculous at the time, but you had to see it happen to understand.
