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:
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
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.
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.
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
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.
