Guide to Countering Skarner as Taric

Tips for Playing as Taric against Skarner

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.

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.

Advice to Win Against Skarner

Skarner is especially dangerous when inside Crystal Spire zones his team controls. Try to capture them ahead of time if a fight may break out around them.

Skarner can't harm you very much outside of short range, so stay away from him!

Skarner's Move Speed is increased as long as his shield, Crystalline Exoskeleton, persists. Attack him to lower his speed.
