Combo Review #14: Kindred + Taric

Leave a Comment

Death defying feats are always fun, and a combination of the two of them together is even more fun! The newly reworked Taric has an extremely powerful ultimate, but only works after a 2.5 second delay. Meanwhile, Kindred's ultimate activates with immediate benefit, but also allows your enemies within the circle to also become invulnerable to death.

However, with the two of them combined...

Introduction

Death defying feats are always fun, and a combination of the two of them together is even more fun! The newly reworked Taric has an extremely powerful ultimate, but only works after a 2.5 second delay. Meanwhile, Kindred's ultimate activates with immediate benefit, but also allows your enemies within the circle to also become invulnerable to death.

However, with the two of them combined...

Main Goals

Chain Invulnerability
At a 4 second duration on Kindred's ultimate and 2.5 seconds for Taric's ultimate activating time, the perfect time to activate Taric's invulnerability is 1.5 seconds after Kindred casts their spell.

Optimal Stuns
Taric's stun also has a slight delay of 1 second. This means that the ideal time to cast it is exactly 3 seconds after Kindred ults, allowing your team to smash down stunned targets during the exact duration that they're not under the effects of Kindred's ultimate.

AOE Heal For Maximum Tricks
Taric's Starlight Touch (W) also allows him to quickly heal up allies in an AOE around him. Although this can be used at any point in the fight, the optimal time is 2.5 seconds after his ultimate goes off, which allows you to maximize the uncertainty of winning for your opponent, luring them into a fight they would otherwise not take.

Other Champions That Synergize

Gragas/Janna/Azir

As mentioned in our first combo review, these champions also work well with Kindred. However, without some hard CC, enemies may just elect to run away from Kindred instead of being baited into an extended fight against vulnerabilities.

    Kayle/Zilean

    If you combine the two of these, you start to find difficulty coordinating the invulnerabilities so they don't stack, but nobody ever complained about being too impervious to damage.

    Conclusions

    This combination is extremely powerful against teams that commit to fights, but may need a bit of CC in order to lock them in place once they realize that your team effectively has 6.5 seconds of invulnerability, where they only have 4.

    Just watch out for those knockbacks.
