    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
    Hook 'till you're hooked!

    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'm leveling W last which at level 1 only gives 20% reduction. Should i level up W second?

    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?

    The difference between 40% or 55% on W is quite big. Your ult also has the same Damage Reduction scaling with MR, so for that squishy the extra 15% of flat Damage Reduction is quite big too.

    I only play support, so my items are different anyway.

    I think i'm starting to prefer him on the support role. Don't know why. Something about his playstyle and awesome support items to give shields.
    I don't know anymore where i am going to play him...should i take the spot of a decent top laner with damage to be a full Tank? Or go support and dont take the spot of anyone?

    LoL, i have more kills as support than when i play Top.

    You could always build him with RoA and Gauntlet top lane, for more mana, dmg and tankyness (then finish off with a normal tank build).

    It really depends on who you're laning against. If it's an AP laner, I'd most likely get an Abyssal for MR and AP, vs AD I'd get a Gauntlet for the Armor/mana and on hit effect.

    Take a look at champion.gg, probuilds etc etc, to see how people build him. I know people usually say stuff like "don't just copy what "pros" do", and to some extent that is true, but it is usually a reason they build a champion the way they do. Look at how people do it, then adapt it to your games.
    Hook 'till you're hooked!
