Guide to Synergizing Taric and Olaf

Tips for Playing as Taric with Olaf

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 Olaf Will Play

The bonus healing granted by Vicious Strikes amplifies your Life Steal from all sources as well as heals from allies.

Olaf can combine Berserker Rage, Vicious Strikes, and Ragnarok at low life to become deceptively strong.
