Meditation and Perseverance
These both stack with Chalice of Harmony. If you have 0 mana, both of these bonuses are doubled. The more mana regen you get from masteries the better.
Also, I'd take Good Hands
or Expanded Mind
. When it comes down to it, Taric wins his games at towers
, not chasing down enemies or escaping failed ganks. Since towers aren't going anywhere, move speed is less important on Taric then it is on other more offensive champions.
For defense, I'd probably take Strength of Spirit
, but the difference in stats is probably so small it really doesn't matter.
