Champion Rework on League of Legends: Taric, The Shield of Valoran

Taric, The Shield of Valoran

After uploading a sneak peek video in their official Facebook page with the captions, “To ascend the Mountain, I had to let go”, League of Legends had finally revealed Taric’s champion update following the release of his comic “The Ascent”. This update will include a new gameplay and in-game look with improved graphics for 4k gaming PC players.

Since the announcement of Mt. Targon’s update, fans have been speculating for a Taric update. Taric is one of the earliest champion in League that was once a guardian of Demacia. Upon the update, Taric’s lore indicated that he ascended to Mt. Targon to seek redemption but instead found a higher calling among the stars. He now stands as the Shield of Valoran, standing against the corruption of the Void and it’s forces.

Here’s a breakdown of his new abilities:

ABILITIES

PASSIVE: BRAVADO

PASSIVE ABILITY-BRAVADO

Taric infuses his next two attacks whenever he cast an ability. This let him swing his weapon faster within these two attacks, dealing with increased damage and reduces his cooldowns.

Q: STARLIGHT’S TOUCH

PASSIVE ABBILITY-BRAVADO

Taric heals himself and all his nearby allies based on the stack of his Starlight’s Touch. Taric can generate up to three charges over time.

W: BASTION

W ABILITY-BASTION

Passive: All of Taric’s skills are simultaneously cast from both Taric and his linked ally. It also increase Taric’s armor.
Active: Taric’s links with an ally, giving them a shield from damage. It also remains on the ally until he recasts it onto another ally or if the two move far enough to break the link.

E: DAZZLE

E ABILITY-DAZZLE

After a short delay, Taric fires out a short wave of celestial energy in a target direction which stuns the enemies it struck.

R: COSMIC RADIANCE

R ABILITY-COSMIC RADIANCE

Taric calls out the celestial power of the stars for their protection. After a moderate delay, the spell allows him and all nearby enemies invulnerable for a few seconds.

With the new update on his skill, we could clearly see that Taric has the potential to become one of the overpowered support by this season.
