Poking is pointless when your opponent is playing a Taric support.
He builds mana regen and spams the heals. So your just wasting your mana.
And with the introduction of sightstone it makes it hard to gank. The sustain is so good.
Has anyone found a good counter for him?

Lulu and Ezreal would like to have a word with you about this.

But seriously- taric's heal isn't all that great. It does minimal healing, except during lane phase if you level it past the normal amount. If you DO level it up instead of W, your hurting your adc by not giving him the armor buff+ the extra shatter damage to burst with. Taric becomes almost useless except for every 20 seconds when his heal is up.

Considering lulu's Q has godly range, slows, a silence, and a hp+knockup ult, she pretty much is the taric counter imo. Perma-slow an already slow melee champion= he can't get to you. W him so he can't use his W/R on your stunned adc. Your ADC is almost bursted down? E/R= another couple hundred HP.

It's actually not a waste of time to harrass Taric. Sure, he can heal some of it back up and he's pretty beefy. But it's not a cheap heal and every bit of mana you force him to expend on healing is mana he can't spend aggressively. If you can apply pressure to him and force him to keep healing then he won't be able to do a lot.

Besides Lulu (who can poke him from miles away), another good counter is Lux. The extreme range on her spells, and her E granting vision, means you can harrass in perfect safety and deny him the ability to safely camp the brush. Her root can counter initiation from the enemy fairly well, too. And she has a shield that can potentially hit her carry twice. Takes some finesse to make her effective as a support, but she does very well against Taric.
