    AP, HP and armor. Those are probably some of the best stats for Malphite. Some exceptions are things like Abyssal Scepter since it gives a bit of MR and spell penetration.

    I just hate it when people state things as facts and don't accept it when they're wrong. Especially when they don't even put up an argument.

    @malph items:
    I prefer a build of Sunfire, Abyssal, Haunting guise/Liandry's, Sorc boots + whatever you still need. Randuins is great due to increased E damage and it adds a really strong aoe slow after his ult initiation. You only need a chalice vs heavy AP lanes/heavy poke lanes where the enemy wont allow you to regen the passive back up so you have to spam that Q to trade back. Sell it later on. You are still very tanky but you can kill a squishy in a single combo if they don't build defensive items.
    The full tank build only works vs AS dependant Carries and with a good team which will abuse that you zone the enemy Ad carry (aka NOT your average game).

    If you really want more damage I'd rather get a gauntler than a Trinity though. Gauntlet adds more damage (AoE > singletarget) and allows you to chain more cc after your ultimate. But i've got to admit that I've only built this like once in all my malph games and that was because it didn't matter anymore.

    At least on EUW, Leona was moved down to 4800 as soon as Quinn was made available. And she was the oldest 6300 IP Champion.

    The latest posts on here made me reminiscence about AD Malphite.
    Maramuna + Frozen Heart + Bloodthirster allready amounts to like 340 AD with W up. Add in the active toggle from Maramuna and there's enough burst to punch someone down in a few hits.
    Not like it's really viable, but who cares. The game is about having fun after all ^^

    You'll get over 300 armor easily and adding up all my damage before resists I was at something like 500-600 damage with muramana active on auto attacks without counting gauntlet procs. So against a team that is AD heavy you're going to be able to just run in and either protect your ADC by attacking the divers or go for theirs because they cant take you on so they're forced to either have their team focus on you or having the ADC only be able to hit you as they try to kite. Either way its a good situation considering you're going to be the tankiest person on your team and you make it easier for your ADC.

    It's actually surprising how much damage Taric will get while still building tanky. However this is shutdown against AP heavy teams because you cant stack the armor/mana items without being blown up by AP damage and there aren't as many choices for MR/mana that fit Taric.
    What did you build im kind curious?

    Probably along the lines of Muramana, Frozen Heart, Iceborn Gauntlet, Wit's End for AS and MR, and Warmog's. Boots will probably either be Tabis or Mercs.

    End build not including boots would look something like Muramana/Wit's End/Icebourn Gauntlets/Frozenheart/Health item(most likely warmogs in a lot of cases), so exactly what Thallidomaniac said. This is assuming that the enemy team is something like 3 AD and 1 AP not counting the support. I feel like Taric's new passive and Muramana become so powerful that you need an attack speed item to make use of it, and Wit's end is the only real choice besides maybe a botrk which is more expensive. Nashor's Tooth would shoot you over the CDR cap and taric cant make use of crit items that well so it really narrows down the choices.

    As for what order to build things it's really up in the air and depends on the situation outside of getting your tear first. You could also go for a RoA after tear if you really think you can get away with it, but I think it takes too much gold and delays getting certain items too long. I would say go for a Sheen and then Glacial shroud if your dominating your lane, and if you aren't then go for a glacial shroud first. I wouldn't really play Taric against AP top because that just makes his free armor bonus and ability to rush armor items pointless. An early Wit's end isn't really that potent if you don't have your mana items to buff your passive up.

    Taric as a bruiser has a lot of build paths though, so I'm interested to see what becomes standard for it. I think Zekent at least will probably become interested in taric top considering it fits his style of picking underplayed things like Karma/AP Janna/Poppy. Taric definitely has damage while building tanky now though, so I think he at least has a spot as a fun pick.

    Do it in Bot games, or in a Custom game.

    It's funny how at the level where pro players play at, nobody makes as much of a fuss about picks compared to everywhere else. TheOddOne currently playing jungle Taric in ranked and is currently 4/0/2. I have to make it perfectly clear that I'm going taric top multiple times and then after a couple dodges I'll get into a game. Some people didn't even know about the changes to Taric and thought I was going AP.

    The other sad thing about this is people make a big fuss out of these kinds of unconventional builds even in blind normals. (I'm not talking about actual troll builds such as AP Garen, of course.) People make it off as if someone wanting to play mana bruiser Taric like the above, or a less-used champion such as Fiora or Karma is suddenly considered to be a toxic player and a troll.

    On another note, is anyone having issues with logging on the official LoL website? Tried to login to it to do Tribunal cases, but the site says that the login part is down for some reason.
