General Description

He has strong crowd control abilities that can disrupt enemy team formations, and his ultimate ability allows him to fly towards his allies to provide them with a shield and knock up enemies in his path.

Galio Build

Galio benefits from tank items that provide health, resistances, and cooldown reduction, such as Sunfire Aegis and Spirit Visage. He can also opt for items that provide additional ability power, such as Zhonya’s Hourglass or Banshee’s Veil.

Galio Runes

In the rune tree, Galio typically runs Aftershock for more durability in team fights. He can also choose to run Predator or Phase Rush for more mobility or Glacial Augment for more crowd control.

Galio Synergies

Galio works well with allies who can provide additional crowd control or engage, such as Amumu or Leona. He also pairs well with allies who can protect him and peel for him, such as Janna or Lulu.


Galio can struggle against enemies who can out-sustain his damage, such as tanks or sustain mages. To counter him, it is important to focus on disrupting his crowd control abilities and avoiding his ultimate ability.
