Taric is a champion in League of Legends.[1]

Abilities

Edit

Bravado

Bravado.png

Innate: After casting an ability, Taric's next two basic attacks within 5 seconds gain Attack speed icon.png 100% total attack speed, each dealing 25 − 93 (based on level) (+ 15% bonus armor) bonus magic damage and Cooldown reduction icon.png reducing the cooldowns of his basic abilities by 1 second.

Info
  • The first attack refreshes Bravado's duration.
  • The bonus damage will not apply against Turret icon.png structures.
  • Bravado can be Counter Strike.png dodged and Spirit's Refuge.png blocked but it cannot miss if Taric is Blind icon.png blinded. The cooldown reduction cannot be negated in any cases.

Edit

Starlight's Touch

Starlight's Touch.png

Active: Taric Heal power icon.png heals himself and nearby allied champions for 25 (+ 15% AP) (+ 1% of Taric's maximum health) per charge of Starlight's Touch that he periodically stocks, up to a maximum amount. Bravado's Bravado's empowered attacks each grant one charge.

Maximum Charges:
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Starlight's Touch can heal up to a maximum of 125 (+ 75% AP) (+ 5% of Taric's maximum health) at 5 charges.

Info
  • The healing will apply heal effects (such as Summon Aery Summon Aery) prioritizing targets in Taric's circle, based on proximity to him, then in the Bastioned Bastioned ally's circle, based on proximity to that ally (including it).

Edit

Bastion

Bastion.png

Passive: Taric gains Armor icon.png bonus armor and forms a Focused Resolve.png tether between him and the ally bound by Bastion. While the tether persists, the ally also gains the bonus armor and Taric's abilities are mimicked to them, though the effects do not stack.

Bonus Armor:
10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14% of Taric's armor
Bastion 2.png

Active: Taric Hybrid resistances icon.png shields himself and the target allied champion for 2.5 seconds, binding them with Bastion.

Shield Strength:
7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11% of target's maximum health

Taric can also self-cast to shield himself; if he is untethered, this will instead target the nearest ally. Only one ally can be bound at a time, and selecting a new ally overrides the previous bind.

Info
  • The mimicked abilities will still complete even if Taric dies or leaves range.
  • Abilities are not mimicked to the bound ally if they are Hallucinate.png vanished via Alpha Strike Alpha Strike, Hallucinate Hallucinate, Rappel Rappel, or Void Rush Void Rush.
    • Mimicked abilities will also cancel if they vanish as above.

Edit

Dazzle

Dazzle.png

Active: Taric winds up over 1 second, then projects a beam of starlight in the target direction that deals magic damage to enemies hit and Stun icon.png stuns them for 1.5 seconds.

Magic Damage:
90 / 130 / 170 / 210 / 250 (+ 50% AP) (+ 50% bonus armor)

Taric can move during Dazzle's windup.

Info
  • Dazzle will aim towards the target direction on-cast when firing from both his and his Bastion's Bastion's positions.

Edit

Cosmic Radiance

Cosmic Radiance.png

Active: Taric calls down a star from above that descends to him over 2.5 seconds. Afterwards, he and nearby allied champions become Cosmic Radiance.png invulnerable for 2.5 seconds.

Info
  • Cosmic Radiance has no effect on Untargetable icon.png untargetable allies.
    • It will affect the primary unit (the one the star is falling down on) even if they are untargetable.

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.
