you have less than 50 total games. You have a win-loss of 6. Good chance you are in the level of Dom where you can win by making ez pure tank. And by making AD brand, etc

I find taric to be on the weaker end of pics when it comes to dominion. He just doesnt seem to brign enough to the table as oppose to other characters more specialised to his roles. Alistar is far superior when defending a point or dirupting enemy lines, and sona/karma are much better at supporting their team. In theory i thougth taric would be strong witht he metagame being mostly AD champs, but in practice I always find myself picking Malphite over him when wanting to counter the metagame.

He could probably go brusier fairly well. Something like Wit's, Sheen(18 base of 121; 4th highest), and Mallet. He'd end up filling the same "role" as Shyvana or Sion does, albeit slightly less tanky/damage but more utility in his stun, heal, and ult.

Taric is one of my regular picks in Dominion and i build him ap burst. I'll admit it doesn't work too well early game but in the last half i have been killing 75% hp volibears before the stun wears off.
The items are: Sorc's shoes, odyn's veil, haunting guise, deathfire grasp, abyssal scepter and a void staff. This results in just over 275 ap i believe as well as 49 magic penetration +49%. There are a lot of buttons to press, with 2 activated items, but it is quite enjoyable due to the fact that people will see me in the jungle and think "easy kill" only for me to have the easy kill

I have seen both damage and tanky turret defender tarics. on average he's done well but I think his scaling is kind of suspect

I'd say he's best at what he's supposed to do; tanky support. Stay with a squishy DPS, heal them, stun anyone who comes near, shatter/ult when going for the kill. Can work AD or AP, going massive armour shredding with shatter/black cleaver/stark's, or AP support with Abyssal and WotA. He's infamous for dropping off completely late game among the supports, so I wouldn't build him to stand alone.

Problem with AP Taric:

Your spell rotation goes like this. Throw DFG + your stun, run in, shatter, ult, run out. Stun will wear off around the time you are shattering/ulting, meaning you are a squishy mage in melee range, with no escape mechanism, you've just lost half your armour buff, and now you're waiting for cooldowns.

I don't think AP Taric's utility outweighs the weakness of having to get into melee range, compared to the many other AP picks. The Dominion aura reduces his heal and armour buff, and other APs have CC that rivals his stun.

I do like AD Taric, picking up Cleaver and Stark's for damage, AS, lifesteal, aura, and the armour shred that stacks with Shatter. His problem is his weakness to kiting, like any melee without a gap-closer, but he can be a surprisingly decent bruiser when you do get the chance to wail on an enemy for a few seconds.
