Galio - the Sentine's Sorrow
Primary: Tank / Secondary: Mage
Long before the League's regulation of such magic, mages experimented with the creation of artificial life. Now forbidden, instilling golems with reason was once not so uncommon a practice amongst the more expert of craftsmen. One such visionary was the Demacian artificer, Durand. Peerless at crafting sentient beings, Durand's constructs served as tireless guardians for the border towns of his beloved city-state, affording them protection from their Noxian neighbors. For his own defense, however, Durand kept his magnum opus: Galio. This mighty construct - forged in the image of a gargoyle - kept him safe on his journeys, allowing him to perform his important work without fear of reprisal from those hostile to his homeland. That is, until dealing with his taxing sentinels finally roused the ire of the Noxian High Command.

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