What's more natural than what we're born with? ;)
: Ramblings on Yorick's narrative and design.
Hopefully when they rework him everyone will remember Yorick Mori. This is a nice post, I agree with what you said. Even his name alone invokes the images of Shakespearean tragedies. He was the third champion I ever bought and I have his Undertaker skin. (I REALLY WANNA SEE A BADASS MASK IN THAT SKIN FOR THE VU!)
: Climbing as support
Hey, I know those feels. I would suggest picking up another role if you soloqueue, or get a friend to be your ADC, practice until you have synergy, then have a go at it. LP gain has to do with your MMR btw, so it's different for everyone. Losing more LP when you lose as opposed to winning LP when you win means the system thinks you're supposed to be at a lower bracket. (To get out of that position start winning more, especially consecutively).

: I hate the new Taric.
Hey there, long time Taric main and I can see where you're coming from. Old Taric most definitely did more damage and was way more reliable. However, new Taric does a fair amount of damage. His autoattacks are his main damage source and he isn't a pushover with his E now that it has armor scaling. With max CDR and a ton of mana you can keep his Q up almost infinitely to do more damage. Although he is much more item reliant than Old Taric. Should he be kept as a niche top lane pick? Absolutely. But should he be balanced completely around it? Not necessarily since he is primarily a support. (Would fukin love it if his autos shredded aromor though, although we'd hear "OP!!!" in less than a femtosecond) ~Gusicles
: Have you ever wondered why Shen wears the mask? Here's a theory.
What if Shen is the mask and the body is just a shell?
: PSA: Playing an off-meta support is not trolling
I agree, I played old Taric back in the day and I got hate from time to time. Better to pick what you're good at and not what is meta.

: How do you win in Silver?
What helps me is improving my macro game. Knowing how and when to take objectives/lane and wave intricacies helps SO MUCH it's crazy. On mobile so can't link, but check out Leaguecraft 101 on youtube. It's a really good series.
: If someone is feeding does that justify being toxic to them?
It doesn't even have to be about morals. Although imo, being toxic has no purpose and it just makes you look stupid. It's against the terms and conditions, simple as that. That's why toxic people get banned.

: When and how often should Supports buy Pink Wards?
In laning phase, having 1 in tribush/gromp bush (depends what side of the map you are) is fine. But once you're in midgame you generally want to be having one in your inventory at all times to replace the lane pink and put it in a better location/replace ones that get destroyed.

: Champion Subclass List
I would have imagined Taric to be a Juggernaut, not Warden. Although I do see where you are coming from (given the protective nature of his heal, shield, and ult), but Taric's playstyle is really more akin to a Fighter than a Tank I think. Also I get that Enchanter is supposed to be the class for supports but in the previous Dev Blog post it says that "_Enchanters themselves are often quite fragile and bring relatively low damage to the table, meaning they really only shine when grouped together with others._" Now, Taric does shine when grouped (literally, because of his ult) but beyond that this doesn't really describe Taric. He is not fragile and while he's not bursting anyone down he has decent damage with armor items. Although I'll admit that he does "augment" his allies. It's not a perfect fit but it's ok. I just wish there was a 3rd subclass that described him better (as well as other Fighter/Juggernaut supports).

: With the cooldowns on yellow trinket you will be lucky to always have them available. An enemy can easily scan and clear a trinket and you are going to be trouble. Based on your average support deaths of 7-8/game I would say you really should listen to this advice and invest some money on vision :).

Damn dude, I agree with you and all but you didn't have to attack this guy. 90% of the time Sightstone is needed, but that 10% is the miracle game where everyone wards and buys a pink. He still has a point.
: Champion Update Q&A: Taric, the Shield of Valoran [COMPLETE]
As a Taric main, I was a little disappointed when Taric's gameplay, which was originally played like a Fighter, seems to have been changed into a Tank. Do we need more Tank supports in the game? Fighter supports are much more unique. What were the reasons for the change?
: Why We Play Support
Being a support main is probably the most fun lanining phase, given your ADC isn't an asshole. Support isn't as appreciated as it should be though. The whole reason for the role existing is that it's more efficient to have 4 people farming than 5. So you're already helping sheerly by not taking farm. It's just as important as the other roles, because support SHOULD carry the laning phase. Early game most supports can 1 v 1 an ADC.

: When your Main becomes FotM (Flavor of the Month)
I've been a Taric main for 3 years. I thought I would be immune from this sort of abuse. Can't wait to see all the new "Taric Mains" and "Omg Taric so Op!!!" shit. ;(
: Taric Weapon Teased?
I see you stay up late looking for Taric information too. Well, honestly? This is very disappointing. This isn't Taric. By extension, that means that whatever champion they're revealing as Taric's "rework" won't be Taric either. That sounds like a drastic judgement, but let me explain. Taric's hammer and shield are straight up iconic. The closest thing we have to this is Poppy's hammer and buckler, but it's distinct enough to matter. Taric's hammer and shield are huge, bulky weapons as opposed to Poppy's ensemble. More importantly, Taric's weapons are more dazzling and glamorous, matching his personality. If this new Taric has this drab colored axe, he will probably have a drab colored shield (IF he even still has a shield!) and armor. And by extension, this will match his personality as well. Very disappointing, if I am correct with this prediction...

It would punish you even more for failing flash, because that animation could take up seconds (which sounds insignificant but it can save a whole team). But it would be freaking hilarious.

I hope they flesh him out but don't make him a joke/broodmaster 900/complete pushover. But, Don Quixote was a joke character. I'm just nitpicking. I agree, though I do think it's telling that we have a wandering knight errant who is being remade to be the enemy of a dragon. That's pretty classic medieval storytelling there. Move over St George, let Taric show you how it's done.
Upon first glance, Don Quixote is indeed a joke character. But under that are the implications... He's a noble, idealistic, and chivalrous person in a corrupt world. Therefore, "crazy". Much like what I think about Taric. But the classic knight versus dragon tale is also pretty exciting to me!

: OMFG TARIC
Where have you been the last 10 months, bro? {{champion:44}} Gembump (Like fistbump, only outrageous)
: Champions and their Childhoods
In my headcannon, Taric was that oddball kid that didn't like to play with toys, and instead just liked to explore nature. He probably got into a lot of trouble getting into places he shouldn't be and getting roughed up. A sort of naturalist, if you will. But of course, he becomes most fascinated with are the rocks and minerals of the earth because of their elegance and luster. There's also a kind of sadness in his voice, so I imagine he's experienced some sort of loss, but chooses to protect others so they do not have to go through what he's gone through. What I would guess is his mother's death, probably through murderous means, since his lore only mentions his father.
: Father forgives you
<3 No hard feelings m8 I was just stating my opinion, and surprisingly I agree with you to an extent but I do think Naut could use SOMETHING, even if it's a little morsel.
: Nautilus does not need more cc, even on jungle camps lol. Give his E bonus damage to monsters. Jungle Nautilus becomes Viable, Top lane Nautilus disappears, and bot lane Nautilus is just an unfortunate casualty.
True but his CC is less effective to monsters than it does to champions. When I mentioned knock up I imagined a brief .25 to .5 knock up, not a sudden blast off into space. But extra damage would be just as valid, although personally, not as cool
Saianna (EUNE)
: You guys want Veigar level of compensation :D?
: > So apparently Nautilus is getting some pretty substantial nerfs because he's getting abused in top lane. Lol it's a love tap to his E, not substantial, just enough to scare the crowd off of him. > As a player who frequents Naut jungle this pisses me off but I understand the frustration someone could have when facing him top. I don't get how, Jungle Naut players max W for clears. > In my opinion, it's a reflection of the current metagame, not that Nautilus' numbers are inherently OP. You very clearly have not witnessed Nautilus with Grasp of the Undying murdering entire teams, and out damaging fighters. Or that he has the highest winrate in the game for top lane. It's well beyond meta. > But of course wishing that a more reasonable, slower approach is taken is nothing more than wishful thinking when people want change NOW. Good good, really winning the crowd now. > Can Nautilus at least get some recompense for the nerfs on his E? I'm thinking a higher slow % and maybe it can even knock up minions and monsters. Really, that's the extent to your imagination? He doesn't need a compensation, his Jungle is unaffected (thank god) while his 2 other roles took a smack, that made him sit back down more so then kick him to the floor. Higher slow does nothing for him. And how is knocking up minions/monsters every 4 seconds not overpowered to you? Disclaimer: I am a super Jungle Naut main, initially worried about his top lane popularity and the nerfs to come, the nerfs coming are very very minor and don't even touch his jungle because you do not max his E first anyway.
Yup you've caught me red handed and my evil upvote farming operation, I surrender sir. I wish I was as good as you, papi.
: I would actually be kinda surprised if he needed it, and i main naut jg/sup. Low levels its barely any damage lost, by the time you start feeling the nerf jungle mobs arent popping your shield anyway and you're not really relying on E damage in botlane as much.
Fair enough, but you cannot deny that numbers wise it is a surprising chunk of damage lost over time! But we'll see how it plays out, you may very well just be right.

: Riot doesn't care if they nerf another aspect of a champion indirectly by nerfing whatever that champion is abusing/being abused for. See Sion.
Unfortunately I think I agree...
: I dig non-champion knockup, helps clears, isn't 2stronk and looks cool. This needs more upvotes.
: I think buffing his jungle clear would be great though. Some people are against it because they think it "forces" a champion to be played in a certain role. but when champs get nerfed and they can jungle too, Riot tends to make their jungle clear better like with Rumble for example.
Yeah I agree, it doesn't pigeonhole him into a single role, just makes his life easier.
