Guide to Countering Ryze as Taric

Tips for Playing as Taric against Ryze

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 Ryze

Crowd controlling Ryze during Realm Warp's windup will cancel the portal.

Ryze is especially dangerous to opponents that are marked with Flux.

Use Realm Warp's windup time to figure out how to deal with what may be coming out of the portal.
