Will Taric be more viable outside of bot lane with his new passive?

#1FootballFan2Posted 2/16/2013 7:21:11 AM
For anyone who doesn't know it know makes his attacks do bonuse damage based off 4% of his maximum mana, and is doubled on champs. Shatter damage now scales off of armor ( and supposedly they're not touching his ap ratio). So I understand this could be a buff to jungle taric, but what about top or mid lane taric. I've had a lot of fun with nashors tank taric but what do you guys think will do to his viability outside of support?

Do it

why are they changing his passive? The only reason he could afford high mana costs was the passive.3

His mana costs are getting lowered.

He's probably more useful as a jungler and solo laner now. The changes nerfed his supporting pretty hard.

His jungle is going to be godlike. Great ganks, great burst damage, and deceptvely good dueling in the jungle. Solo top hel beat any bruiser not named AP Jax or Jayce

What about Garen?

He stuns, Garen Qs out of it, silence and then spins?

Garen's Q only removes slows, not stuns.

This, and by the time garen comes out of the stun, hes already been shattered and gotten AAd a couple times. Hes already lost the trade even if he qs and spins.

Taric also now gets damage by building armor, something that messes garen up something fierce. Its going to force garen to rush a BC which will make him squishy. Since Taric now does damage, this is going to screw garen
