Playing As Galio Galio
  • Placing Bulwark.png Bulwark on an ally under attack is a good way to regain Health.
  • Righteous Gust.png Righteous Gust can be useful for charging opponents or escaping pursuers.
  • You can significantly increase the damage potential of Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand by using it when multiple enemies are close.
Playing Against Galio Galio
  • Avoid attacking Galio's allies while they are Bulwark.png Bulwarked, since your attacks will be less effective and will heal Galio.
  • Avoid Idol of Durand.png bunching up with allies when Galio is nearby.
  • Interrupting Galio while he channels Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand will free any allies he's taunting.


Ability Usage
  • The taunt from Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand can be placed on any enemy champion that walks in range at any time during its channeling.
  • The Resolute Smite.png Resolute Smite's mana cost and cooldown may leave you out of mana quickly. Be sure not to cast it too frequently, unless got sources of mana/mana regeneration.
  • Bonus movement speed from Righteous Gust.png Righteous Gust helps him greatly get into the middle of fight. However it is very predictable, so easier way to taunt enemy team via Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand is to i. e. Flash.png Flash through the wall.
  • Bulwark.png Bulwark grants lots of armor and magic resistance. Use it to decrease damage taken by focused ally.
    • It will also restore vast amounts of health when you have magic resistance.
    • When cast on yourself, you can negate most of damage coming from single burst, making it an effective counter to non-Veigar Veigar mages.
  • When having lots of mana, you may use Resolute Smite.png Resolute Smite to poke enemies. Also, it's slow allows you to catch escaping opponents, and with 45% cooldown reduction you may keep them close for as long as you hit them.
    • Be careful, as it can be easily avoided at long ranges, as it's not as fast, the radius is not as large and the casting point is usually easily predictible. Cast at close range or cast at the point you think the enemy will go to missstep it.
  • Much easier ability to poke is Righteous Gust.png Righteous Gust. It is much faster and has longer range and area, but it also deals less damage. It also grants movement speed buff that allows you to go into much easier. Poke with it only if you do not plan to initiate that time.
Mastery Usage
  • Galio Galio makes use of all Resolve keystones, but when playing offensive, both Thunderlord's Decree and Stormraider's surge may be effective choice for him.
Item Usage
  • It is not difficult to deplete out of mana playing Galio Galio. To counter this, try to get items granting mana and mana regeneration.
    • Perfect item for him is Rod of Ages item.png Rod of Ages. Not only grants it lots of mana, but it also grants health and ability power, and Galio Galio likes all of these statistics.
    • When in need, Frozen Heart item.png Frozen Heart is also good option for him. It grants lots of mana to allow him cast spells. But it also grants lots of armor, so he can maintain his Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand longer and cooldown reduction to make him cast more spells. Note, that the attack speed reduction aura will decrease the amount of attacks enemies will deliver, possibly decreasing Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand's damage. It's not worthy mentioning, when you take benefits and disadvantages, it becomes perfect item when facing lots of AD enemies.
    • If offensive, Morellonomicon item.png Morellonomicon might be an effective item for him. Not only grants it mana, but it also grants cooldown reduction, which is crucial to cast more Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand's and grants lots of ability power. Plus, whenever he scores a takedown, his mana will regenerate, allowing him to cast more spells.
      • Don't forget, that it doesn't grant any defensive statistics and leaves Galio Galio vulnerable. Go for it only when you know, what you are doing.
    • When not in need of Rod of Ages item.png Rod of Ages, Righteous Glory item.png Righteous Glory can be taken instead, as it also grants movement speed boost to better position Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand. Plus it also grants mana and health he needs.
      • However this leaves Galio Galio with much lesser ability power. When you don't need more damage, you can go for it.
  • To help him get closer, Hextech Protobelt-01 item.png Hextech Protobelt-01 can be bought. It grants ability power, health and cooldown reduction, all that Galio Galio likes, But more importantly, it grants him a dash (short, but for him it's always useful), that will help him get to the enemies he wishes to taunt.
    • It is build of two items, that aren't effective by theirselves. Don't buy it as first item (not taking boots into consideration), as when on the way getting it he is pretty weak.
  • When it comes to boots, Mercury&#039;s Treads item.png Mercury's Treads are obvious choice for him.
    • When an enemy team happens to consist of mostly physical champions, consider Ninja Tabi item.png Ninja Tabi. It will grant you a bit of armor, but also greatly decrease damage taken from attacks (and taunted enemies use attacks often), and they will be probably better than Mercury&#039;s Treads item.png Mercury's Treads's 12.5 ability power.
  • Effective item for him is Abyssal Scepter item.png Abyssal Scepter. Not only it grants whoopin 90 ability power, but it also decreases magic resistance of surrounding enemies. Since Galio Galio's scalings are rather mediocre, negating enemy magic resistance is better option.
    • That's also the reason, why Rabadon&#039;s Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap isn't necessary for him to get. He benefits more from items that grant him some form of survivability, mana or mobility rather than pure power.
  • Another obvious item might be Spirit Visage item.png Spirit Visage. It greatly increases health, magic resistance and health regeneraion, but it also increases healing taken via Bulwark.png Bulwark, making him even harder to kill.
  • If in need of lots of magic resistance, Banshee&#039;s Veil item.png Banshee's Veil is a great option for him. It will grant him 35 ability power thanks to his Runic Skin.png Runic Skin.
    • It also grants spellshield, which may help him get to the priority targets or maintain his Idol of Durand.png Idol of Durand longer.
  • Bonus Ability Power gained through Runic Skin.png Runic Skin
