Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

When building GalioGalio as a support, you have two options - tank or Ap. Think about what your team lacks and make your decision based on that.

For the tank build, we will be starting with Boots of SpeedBoots of Speed and after rushing it to tier 3, we will be rushing items who can provide you with fast roams and team enchance. The three items that you should ALWAYS have on galio are Dead Man's PlateDead Man's Plate , Abyssal MaskAbyssal Mask and Force of NatureForce of Nature . These items give you a lot of speed and will increase both your and your team's damage, and do remember that some of GalioGalio 's skills scale up with MR anyway. The rest of the items should be picked based on the enemy team, so don't build the same things blindly.

As for AP, we willl be focusing on items that are cheap, offer more tankiness and are good in terms of utility. items such as Rod of AgesRod of Ages and Crystalline ReflectorCrystalline Reflector are a good choice, as well as Abyssal MaskAbyssal Mask since it offers extra defense and a damage boost anyway. Remember again - GalioGalio has abilities that scale with MR.

The first rune set is something that I personally like to use more, as the roams are faster and you can get more dominance in lane even against poke champions since your sustain will be strong. If you are a less experienced player or simply prefer a simpler and safer way to play, the second rune set is for you.

Galio

How to be good-big guy.

1. When in lane, don't try to be to aggresive when you want to engage. Wait for the enemies to over extend and then rock their world.

2.Try to be more present on the mid lane if you have ult available, even at the cost of leaving your adc to 1v2. remember that you can just fly to his location if needed.

3.You can use Shield Of DurandShield Of Durand to not only CC enemies, but also reduce damage while disengaging. 

4.You can also use Justice PunchJustice Punch to avoid skillshots or move quicker.

5.When using Hero's EntranceHero's Entrance during a teamfight, don't be afraid to wait for a bit until the enemy is grouped on your team, as you will get more knockups this way.

6.You can use Winds Of WarWinds Of War on bushes to scan them. If you here the sound effect that happens when you hit someone - this bush has an enemy!

7.Always apologise in advance before ruining places.
