Playing against Galio

Key Insights
Because
Q
's windblasts come from his sides, they can be dodged by walking into Galio.
During
W
's channel time and for two seconds afterwards, Galio takes reduced damage.
R
grants
W
's magic damage shield to all allied champions in the AoE on cast.
Power Spike
Naturally counters AP champions with
W
/
R
and the MR scaling on
P
/
W
.
At level 6, Galio can look for better roam plays with
R
.
As a Mid Burst Mage,
Luden's Echo
and
Zhonya's Hourglass
are great power spikes. Can opt for
Rabadon's Deathcap
for damage over utility.
As a Support Tank,
Gargoyle Stoneplate
and
Redemption
empower your playstyle.
Vulnerable
W
grounds Galio, preventing him from using Flash during its channel to guarantee landing it.
Once
E
is used, Galio has no way out of a fight (outside of using
R
).
E
's dash can be interrupted by standing in front of him.
R
has a very long cooldown of 200 seconds at rank 1.
R
's channel can be interrupted by any hard CC, and its AoE is easy to avoid.
