Guide to Countering Jayce as Taric

Tips for Playing as Taric against Jayce

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

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.

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

Advice to Win Against Jayce

Jayce is strong in the early game. If he gains the advantage, play defensively.

If you see Jayce drop his Acceleration Gate, be careful, he is probably about to cast Shock Blast.

Jayce can attack in melee or at range. Pay attention to his stance and weapon color to know how he is going to attack.
