Hi Dalems here currently a 1850 (Platinum 5!) elo player that enjoys playing non-meta champions/seeming odd builds. Galio is one of 5 least used champions in League (by but he is on par with all of the "Meta" supports like Thresh, Sona. So pick up Galio and bulwark the community! [img=champ/galio.png] is a CDR support, Hard initiation, AOE Tank. What this means is that Galio doesn't work well in long range poke fights but works very well in an all in team. Example: [img=champ/galio.png][img=champ/graves.png][img=champ/kennen.png][img=champ/nautilus.png][img=champ/pantheon.png] Change Log: 5/21/13 I was looking at making and posting my Dr. Mundo guide when I saw that this one had 66K view, so I have decided to update it! 10/11/13 Almost 200k views! Time for another update! More mastery Choices, Added Fairy Charm to Starting items More rune choices add Galio only Rune page

Quints Gold per 10 quints allow you to get your items quicker which means your team get's tankier quicker MR quints if you feel like taking an early game gamble. MR quints- If you don't want to take Gp/10 Runes MR quints are a good alternative since they also give you AP. Marks Armor Marks gets you to 45 armor at level 1 can also be MR or Magic Pen Marks+1 Hybrid Pen mark if you want to do more damage early. Seals Armor Seals gets you to 45 armor at level 1 Mana regen Seals if you know you will have to spam spells Mr Seals if you want to go the flat MR Galio route Glyphs Flat MR glyphs better early game gives you 6 ap and lets you hit 44 MR level 1 MR/Level glyphs Scales to late game a little better. Pages that I Consider viable Gold/10 Quints, Armor marks, Armor Seals, MR Glyphs (Basic Support Page) MR Quints/Ap quints, Magic Pen marks+1 Hybrid Mark, Armor Seals, Mr glyphs (Galio's harass is stronger early game)

[title][img=skills/galio/p.png] Passive: Runic Skin[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Lets your damage scale so that you can at least clear a wave later in the game maybe do some damage with 100-150 ap from this very lategame. Hooray free stats!!! [title][img=skills/galio/q.png] Q: Resolute Smite[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Lets you slow people and push waves. Takes getting used to the travel time to land it consistantly. Great for chasing and kiting small packs of enemies in teamfights or allowing your Adc get into range in lane. [title][img=skills/galio/w.png] W: Bulwark[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Very strong skill it turns anyone on your team into an insta-tank and heals you for a decent amount. Use this skill on initiators that don't have great tank stats ([img=champ/fiddlesticks.png],[img=champ/hecarim.png]) or Assassins ([img=champ/diana.png]) when they will be focused because they are diving into the back line. This skill gives 3600 gold in Stats at level 9 and is a very big reason why Galio is able to play the support role well. [title][img=skills/galio/e.png] E: Righteous Gust[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] Lets your team chase down the other team or help you to get away. Great for allowing your Adc extra kiting potential or catching the other team out of position and pushing towers. Also makes minions run faster! (Useful for getting large minion waves to push towers for you) I max this skill second as when supporting with Galio because it is better for wave clearing and getting back to lane quicker. [title][img=skills/galio/r.png] R: Idol of Durand[/title] [title]Explanation:[/title] [img=summoners/flash.png]+[img=skills/galio/r.png] into 3-5 of the enemy team or an ad/ap carry = team fight is won. This play is why you play Galio. One of the best initiation tools in the game. On par with [imgsmall=champ/amumu.png]'s Ult. Think of it like Amumu R + Alistar R

[img=items/ionian-boots-of-lucidity.png] Allows you to get 40% CDR which is very important on Galio. 40% more [img=skills/galio/r.png] means that you can fight and win 40% more team fights. [img=items/eleisas-miracle.png] Makes your heal CD lower gives you great sustain make sure to pick one up early if you can afford it and if you picked heal. The Mana Regeneration on Chalice actually allows you to play Galio. First buy. [img=items/sightstone.png] The most important item when you are supporting. PICK ONE UP! [img=items/mikaels-crucible.png] You no long have mana problems and you have an on-demand Heal+cleanse this is a GREAT item on Galio. [imgsmall=skills/galio/w.png]--> carry is focused --> You heal them with this+[imgsmall=summoners/heal.png] all of the other team's efforts were just wasted :D [img=items/locket-of-the-iron-solari.png]- Supports now build this item in solo queue because it slows down the jungler's build to much. [img=items/shurelyas-reverie.png] Allows you to start fights and helps get you to 40% CDR keep the [img=items/philosophers-stone.png] as long as possible to keep the money flowing. If you are against a Poke team pick this up ASAP or if their team has very high mobility and your team is having trouble keeping up. [img=items/randuins-omen.png] get [img=items/wardens-mail.png] Passive+[img=skills/galio/r.png]= everyone is slowed! Has a 3-4 second 35% slow AOE on a 50 sec CD late game I don't think anyone is walking away from you any time fast hope that your Adc and team follows up. [img=items/spirit-visage.png] always a great pickup on Galio now it is even better in Season 3 since it scales into late game and gets you to 40% cdr pick it up when are having trouble with a fed AP carry. With base stats, runes, masteries, and items added up you will have 204 Armor, 194 MR, and 3.3k HP With about 75hp/5 and a ton of mana regen with final build. Build costs about 15k to finish. 30 minutes of game time with just Philo+quints+masteries+passive gold=5000 gold and you should be getting plenty of assists, turrets, and dragons to help you get your items :). Build for the actives that you want in the current game you won't be able to afford all of them in 95% of games.

The best ADC for Galio is [img=champ/graves.png] not only is is a GG lane (Galio,Graves). Graves at level 2 will have 73 armor with [img=skills/galio/w.png] on him at LEVEL 2!!! That is one tanky ADC I would like to see Ezreal Mystic shot do more than 40 damage to him LOL. Graves and Galio can out fight/trade and out push most lanes. And at level 6 they can just unload 4 nukes and instagib the other laners. In teamfights When Galio ults Graves can easily get into range and shroud the enemy team for max confusion and GG. Thanks for reading. Galio as a support in season 3 work very well vs Thresh, Leona, Annie, Nami Galio is one of the 5 least used champions but he is very good. So if you want to be on the hipster train with supports pick up Galio!
