Dazzle

Dazzle

Cost: 60 ManaCooldown: 15 secondsRange: 610
Readies a beam of starlight that, after 1 second, deals 60/105/150/195/240 (+50% Ability Power) (+ 0) magic damage and stuns enemies for 1/1.125/1.25/1.375/1.5 second(s).
Cosmic Radiance

Cosmic Radiance

Cost: 100 ManaCooldown: 160/130/100 secondsRange: 400
After a 2.5 second delay, pulses cosmic energy onto nearby allied champions, making them invulnerable for 2.5 seconds.

Tips for Allies

  • The cooldown reducing component of Bravado makes Cooldown Reduction items like Frozen Heart, Iceborn Gauntlet, and Spirit Visage exceptionally powerful on Taric.
  • Using Starlight's Touch at lower charges makes its healing less Mana efficient, but can greatly increase Taric's sustained damage via Bravado.
  • Rather than saving Cosmic Radiance for the last moment and risking someone dying during the delay, it can be more beneficial to cast it as soon as you know a teamfight is guaranteed to start.

Tips for Enemies

  • Taric's ultimate, Cosmic Radiance, has a long delay before its effect. Try to quickly assess whether to disengage the fight or attempt to kill his allies before it goes off.
  • Taric reduces his spell cooldowns by basic attacking enemies with Bravado. Try to kite him in teamfights and punish him for approaching the minion wave in lane.

Lore

''The best weapons are beautiful.''

Taric is the Aspect of the Protector, wielding incredible power as Runeterra's guardian of life, love, and beauty. Shamed by a dereliction of duty and exiled from his homeland Demacia, Taric ascended Mount Targon to find redemption, only to discover a higher calling among the stars. Imbued with the might of ancient Targon, the Shield of Valoran now stands ever vigilant against the insidious corruption of the Void.
