How viable is Jungle Taric ?

My bro convinced me that he can jungle with Taric...and he actually was really successful with it twice in a row. Now, maybe it's a fluke but dat damage output as soon as he gets Triforce is ridiculous (when he has his ult up)

Turns out he's a really strong bruiser that can heal himself up and never dies...

Taric is pretty much like Sion if you can farm up. It's pretty fun.

As for jungler, I'm not sure; I imagine he has the same issues as what a jungle Sion would have... Try it out in ranked and see.

I actually like jungle Zyra and Kat quite a bit, but it's not as practical against certain teams as I've found in ranked.

Taric is better than Sion jungle, his kit doesn't need a bunch of farm to be good. On the downside, you now have two kits like that on your team, depending on bot lane comp.

It's pretty strong, I've seen it wreck

That's fair. The comparison isn't exactly good considering Taric has more supportive abilities and functions very well without items (hence why he's a good support and Sion isn't).

I can see it work, but I didn't think his clear time was that good, or has it improved since season 2 with machete? If so, then nice fine and hopefully he climbs with it. Otherwise, it's a secret weapon :D!

Taric with actual damage can get silly.

his early clears are really slow is the only problem. but if he gets farm he can easily surprise people with how much his burst does.

He's pretty decent actually, around the level of Sejuani and Warwick. Not a top tier jungler but he's certainly no slouch either.
