Guide to Countering Lee Sin as Taric

Tips for Playing as Taric against Lee Sin

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 Lee Sin

Stay spread out to minimize the impact of Lee Sin's ultimate, Dragon's Rage.

Lee Sin relies heavily on following up with his abilities. Use disables to prevent him from chaining together his abilities and attacks.
