    So now that Galio is on the edge of his release, do people like him?

    Honestly I think hes a great looking champ with some cool skills, but there isn't much of that Galio feel left in him outside of the W.

    I love his design and roleplay factor but i'm afraid he is going to suck because of a video i watched of Pants are Dragon.
    His opinion was that he is going to suck, low AP ratios, easy to dodge abilities and is mostly going to be built support Tank.

    I'm hoping he is wrong because i abolutely love him and i'm going to play him non stop on release.

    Think of someone like Draven, Vayne, or Quinn - who will be using Axe Buff (I don't Draven), Tumble, or Vulnerable on that hit.

    LoL i never knew about this drama between Imaqtpie and Nightblue3 xD so funny
    Seems like Nightblue3 was offended and unfollowed imaqtpie after him mentioning how bad matchmaking is for placing in the same team a Challenger rank 6 player with Nightblue3 (a D5 player) on the same team.

    I love drama I never saw such a butthurt and salty version of Nightblue3

    Nah, he's fine in top or the jungle, just not as oppressive as he was before the nerfs on the ptr.

    I think the problem of him is that he is not exactly tanky. He has nothing. Zero defenses (unlike old Galio, who was a God of defense)
    Ok he has his W but is not really used as a defense tool.

    So because he is not exactly Tanky, if he doesnt have the item advantage OR someone in the enemy team got fed in lane and has a major item advantage, you are prety much one shoted by said person who is slightly fed.

    Just because he is not the beast he was it doesn't mean he isn't good.

    Played twice last night in Ranked (couldn't play him more since it's banned all the time). Wasn't my first time as I've been playing him a lot on PBE.

    Gotta say I really love him, in jungle at least. Good clear speed, and nice ganks.

    Q hits really hard and E has a longer range than it seems. Nothing to say about taunt, it's just too god, specially with the 4s damage reduction (2s + 2s if you taunt someone).

    But what I'm really loving about him, is the ult. Not because of the knockup since it's really easy to step outside of the landing zone (not in a TF, in a TF is fucking amazing), but because of the damage reduction applied.

    Saved my Draven and Lucian in both games lots of times when they were ulted or focused in a gank because a 23% damage reduction at level 1 is incredibly strong (20+X of your MRes).

    The only thing I don't really like that much is that E can't jump walls and the small backwards dash at the start of E.

    I have the best Galio on EUW.



    But seriously, i think he is pretty good i'm just bad at him because i throw myself to the fight thinking i am a Tank when i need to be on the backline peeling for the ADC.
    He is perfect on laning phase and early game.

    Aren't people playing him AP now though? Like RoA into tank for top lane.

    LoL, i have no idea what i'm doing.
    I go in lane with a Dorans Blade for easy last hits and then i build full tank with an Abyssal Scepter.
    And i die as easy as butter with this "full tank" build. But thats because i think i am the initiator and i'm not. I'm playing him badly because i was used to the godly tankyness of old Galio.

    Am i suposed to build him with more AP?

    But why isn't he tanky in your opinion? You can still by the same items, and with a bit of MR you're W gives you like 50% damage reduction for 4 seconds. Same for his ult. You basically give a guy over 50% of pure damage reduction ...

    I've only seen one in my games so far, and that was jungle. He went AP like this:

    jungler item (not sure which one he started with)
    RoA asap
    Finishing Runic Echo jungler item
    Randuins (we were against 2 ADCs and AD mid)
    Then it seems like he was building Abyssal, but we won before he could finish it.

    He seemed rather tanky. Though their Zed was super fed early, so tank compared to how fast a full ArmPen Zed kills you I guess

    Also looking at champion.gg, people build him ap/mr. Not sure if that is up to date though. But it does look like people are just building him as I am used to see Galio being built from old - AP and MR. Not sure where you got the idea of AD/armor build :P

    I'm leveling W last which at level 1 only gives 20% reduction. Should i level up W second?
    I die really bad if i decide to be the frontline of the match. I should do what they said on Riot Galio stream. "Galio is not the initiator, he needs a Tank to go on front"

    It's only a Dorans Blade, i dont build AD Is just to last hit better in laning phase because i dont know what other item to start with.
    AH! That jungle game where i builded a Dorans Blade was because some other dude picked jungle even though i said and locked first. He told me to go top and then told me to go jungle. LOL
    Thanks for the tips.
    I think my problem is in the "gameplan" and "mindset" in teamfights.

    So far Galio has been underwhelming.

    Vs him a total of 4 times (twice in lane, twice he was in jungle or other lanes to me)

    So far I don't really find him hard to deal with, even when i'm playing an AP top laner vs his (swain both times)
    It might just be silver/gold league heroes taking him out without really knowing what they are doing but he just feels like a nothing champion.

    (speaking in a solo lane)
    The lack of a power spike in a solo lane at 6 is a real killer for him, the E is pretty telegraphed, a few times I let myself get hit my it just so I could E > W > Q him.
    The magic shield (w passive) is kinda like a malphite passive just keep tapping him when ever i could to prevent it coming back.
    any kind of champ with a root really seems to hurt him.
    Teamfights mainly consisted of us waiting for him to ulti then walking / running (using talisman) away, he needs a team with CC is to land his AoE CC.
    IDK again it may just be people adjusting to him but I stopped banning him because he wasn't hard to deal with.

    You die because you barely build any health and mostly build resistances. On top of that, you build armour which he does not scale with. You ignore pretty much anything that'd make Galio work and anything that makes a tank tanky. It's small wonder you keel over as soon as someone breathes on you.

    Thx for reminding me of "Effective health" i was doing the math wrong all along from ages ago. LoL
    2 sunfire capes gives more effective health than 2 thornmails for example. 1000 more e.health to be exact.

    Gonna change my starting items but i really need the armor against teams with Yasuo's and Zed's mid.
    And i have no idea now where i am going to get mana items from. There is no item in the game that gives mana, armor and health.

    I would yes. You could even put something like 3 points in Q, and if you feel that's enough, max W first. E should be fine to level last. By that time teamfights and roams will happen a lot more and W is just a lot stronger. Apart from that, what Dulliath said, you can have 400 armor and MR, but ti's still useless if you just have 1000 health so to speak. You get flat Damage Reduction on a pretty low CD, and even W scales with health.

    Also, if they have a monster AD comp, I' suggest another champ. He still scales pretty damn hard with MR.

    Not that much really. Only 15% more damage reduction on W and a little tiny bit more damage on passive. It's not that impressive scaling with MR.
    Been playing him like @Duilliath said with health and the difference is from day to night. I am finally a decent tank if i build full Health + Resistances + Courage of the Colossus.
    I feel like my Galio is ranked ready now. Won 4 games in a row



    Edit: Maybe...too much survival? More damage items?
