Guide to Countering Amumu as Taric

Tips for Playing as Taric against Amumu

Using Starlight's Touch at lower charges makes its healing less Mana efficient, but can greatly increase Taric's sustained damage via Bravado.

The cooldown reducing component of Bravado makes Cooldown Reduction items like Frozen Heart, Iceborn Gauntlet, and Spirit Visage exceptionally powerful on Taric.

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.

Advice to Win Against Amumu

Erratic movement, or hiding behind creep waves can make it difficult for Amumu to instigate a fight with Bandage Toss.

Amumu's Despair makes purchasing primarily Health items a risky proposition.

Avoid bunching up with other allies when Amumu has his ultimate available.
