Guide to Synergizing Taric and Kalista

Tips for Playing as Taric with Kalista

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 Understand How Kalista Will Play

Rend is a valuable last hitting aid, since its cooldown resets if it kills a target.

Entering a move order once to trigger Martial Poise will not clear Kalista's basic attack target.

Due to her passive, Kalista's Move Speed is effectively increased by Attack Speed.
