My runes are MP marks, Mp5 seals, AP glyphs, and MS quints.
I usually start with a faerie charm, wardsx4, and a mana pot. I get the 4 wards so I can have an extra set.
I grab my stun first so I can help accommodate my ADC with first blood, followed by the heal, and then follow the skill level up process by R->W->Q->E.
My style is usually cautious but I get aggressive when me and my teammate have a significant amount of health over the enemies.
Does anyone have any suggestions/tips to play Taric? I find him to be one of the best supports as he's tanky, has a range of ways to assist team, and has a heal.
Who's the best ADC to play with Taric? Who counters him?
I primarily play support these days, since my brother wont play unless I support his ADC bottom lol.
That being said I'm starting to favor a more aggressive approach to support, it's more fun in my opinion and I find it better in team fights as well.
I would recommend going 1/16/13 masteries, getting the movement speed in the defense line and 1 point in the utility line coupled with movement speed quints and whalla you can easily close the gap to get off a W R combo and burst down their ADC.
As for runes I go Flat Armor Marks / Seals / Mr per level glyphs / movement speed quints.
In solo queue and with a good aggressive ADC you wont need the extra 5 gp/10 from seals and quints.
I'm beginning to prefer ghost over flash because of the slow reaction speeds people seem to have in team fights, I would rather be able to chase someone down or escape a team fight.
I like to start with boots, 2 pots, and a ward for the river. The 2 pots gives you a lot more sustain and makes it almost impossible to keep you off the adc, combined with hopefully some team work and you will dominate that lane in no time!
