Galio is just a little too squishy to be a true-tank

I think a basic buff to health/health per lvl could go a long way.

Mmk so I've seen this response a few times. I'll rephrase my statement. Galio is too squishy to be a true tank...

and lacks the utility to be a good support.

His shield is nice...but heals him, not the person shielded.

AoE slow percentage isn't really amazing, does good damage but easy to dodge, especially early game.

His E makes me really sad. It should not only speed up allies but also slow enemies.

His ult is one of the best in the game, but huge CD and meh range severly limits it. (Yeah, I know Riot just buffed the range. It's still kinda little and easy to avoid.)

You will find the solution under the "Defence" Tab in the shop.

Being squishy isn't Galios problem, because hes totally not. His problem is a lack of CC to keep his squishys alive.

Galio is a little too without tank abilities in order to tank. Galio is trapped in some terrible limbo of being neither dps nor tank nor support. He is a little bit of all of them and that almost never adds up to being good.

I am a simple gargoyal monster and not made of gold.

All I'm saying is his stats should keep up with other tanky peeps like Malphite and Ammumu

Level shield first. It's OP as hell.

They don't have the easy time farming that galio does.

Although it is amusing that the taunt tank which requires people to hit him has low defense stats, I'll give you that.

Well to be fair he isn't a pure tank. He is more of a support tank. You go in and ulti , but beyond that you don't really want to be taking too much damage.

galio is the only character ive been able to play that can survive a veigar combo
and kill him shortly thereafter
he isn't squishy...
he just doesn't have that much armor so be careful against physicals because they will tear you a new one
