You like hot gay paladins? Then Taric is the man for you. Jokes aside – Taric is an amazing supp with tons of protection in his kit. He has always been one of the highest win rate supps in the game, and for good reasons. 

I'll tell you all the deets why you should main Taric and why he might be the best support in the game. 

Not your cup of tea? Maybe check out some other champions:

Strongest Ult Out of All Supports

His Ultimate (Cosmic Radiance) is by far the strongest one out of all supps. By using his R, he pulses cosmic energy onto nearby allied champions after a delay, making them invulnerable for a short duration. To sum it up: After a delay, you get a Kayle Ult, but not just for you, but for the entire team if they position themselves correctly. 

This is an insanely powerful tool and the best R in terms of protection. Master the art of timing Cosmic Radiance, and you can turn the tide of battles, allowing your team to either survive enemy engagements or initiate fights with invincibility on your side. Remember the days when Taric and Master Yi struck fear into the hearts of opponents? Yeah, that combo was no joke, and it all came down to the incredible power of Taric's R.

Taric Never Gets Banned

One-tricking Taric is like having a golden ticket to always snag your favorite champion. Let's be real, Taric rarely gets banned, and most players tend to lean towards the more mainstream supports. It's not that he's unpopular, because he is bad – it's just that mastering Taric takes a bit of practice. But hey, that's a win for you! With Taric, you pretty much have an open invitation to pick him whenever you please.

The Shield of Valoran

Taric doesn't only score with his kit, but with his lore, too. He is host to the Aspect of the Protector and therefore got incredible power as Runeterra's guardian of beauty, love and life. By climbing Mount Targon after getting exiled from his homeland of Demacia, he wanted to find redemption, but instead discovered a higher calling among the stars. Since then, Taric is the "Shield of Valoran" and protects the world of Runeterra at all costs. That's like so hot ...

While Taric appreciates the beauty in all things, the Void became his biggest enemy, especially because of his role as the Aspect of the protector, but also other past experiences. This makes him the ultimate protector not only in-game, but also lorewise.

Taric Is Voguing

Enough with the dry facts about lore and his kit. Taric is voguing

By dancing in-game, he poses in multiple positions, meanwhile his gems show him in the best lighting possible. This is by far the best dancing animation in the game, which is a reference to the gay ballroom culture.

Most Iconic Skin In The Game

Like it's not enough that he literally vogues in-game: Picture him in his dancing animation together with his Armor of the Fifth Age skin! Could it be more gay? Could it be more iconic? I doubt it.

Armor of the Fifth Age Taric shows up with a bright pink color, boots with the fur, a hot belly-free suit and freshly washed hair, which probably smell like roses. And the best part? It only costs 750 RP!

These are my 5 reasons why you should definitely main Taric – or at least give him a chance ...
