Tips Against Galio in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Polarshift says “Not too much of a threat. Hes melee, you are quite good at escaping when you're not cc'd and you can dodge all of his abilities. Be careful of his taunt, because its an excellent tool to set up a gank. With a bit of magic resist he should never be able to kill you.”
Drewmatth Taliyah says “MELEE = PUSH EARLY (LEVELS 1-2) - CARE FOR GANKS! (SPAM Q'S TILL 50-60% MANA). Corrupting due to his Q poke and because it's practically impossible to nuke him down in a single burst. We need all the sustain we can get. Play with cleanse if the setup with their jungler is too strong (Heca/Galio for example). Galio provides lots of CC but it is fairly predictable. I would play with Ignite but would stay safe on lane and focus more on ganks. Beware! Everytime you gank there might be a Galio ult popping up on your target location (their ADC most of the times), so every time you roam consider it that it will be a 3v3 (unless you finish the job quickly). Play according to that fact.”

eiensiei says “Won't kill him, but he can't really kill me either since they've nerfed him and he can no longer W+Flash. Farm fest, but Lux has the potential to be more useful late game picking off enemies.”

Sylvan Lore says “The new gallo is really strong against almost all squishy mid lane champions. He can go nearly full damage with just a rod of ages and we will be both tanky and bursty. Above all else, his rank reception is superb and if his jungler ever comes, they will definitely clean you up. He will also easily outroam you and effect the map very well with his ult. You can match his push pretty well, just make sure he never lands his E->Passive->Q combo on you in lane or you will lose 50-70% of your hp. You can bully him if you are careful about dodging that ability. Recommend: Barrier or Cleanse and Dmg Build with Liandry's Torment as your second main item and Banshee Veil third if he is strong/ahead. ”

PlayCabex says “You can't kill him and neither does he , because of his stupid magic resist shield which takes no dmg , aslo he is probably going to buy abyssal mask aswell , just farm and poke against him and ask your jungler for a gank”

Scyrine says “hard matchup but still winnable. Galio's usually engage with their dash. Don't waste your abilities trying to trade him, wait for his engage and E back. Try to be on the lookout for his taunt, and even if he does taunt you in the beginning you should just keep attacking instead of running away.”

Yasukeh says “Galio is definitely much harder after his recent changes. he can very easily 100-0 you and overall outtrade you from early on. If you go on him early when he has all cooldowns up, he will win the trade. Wait for him to use his Q to farm or harrass and then jump on him. When you are going out from a trade, his charge is much faster than your spin now, so you have to spin much earlier in the animation to dodge it. ”

Yeager says “Start corrupting potion. You can abuse him early with auto attacks combined with the active from the potion. Later on he becomes too tanky for you to kill, so you should avoid any interaction with him. Just stay safe and look for good roams. ”

Fuzzmonkey says “This match up is mainly based on reactions but LeBlanc does still struggle against Galio because he is an anti-mage champion. If Galio can taunt Leblanc when she W's in, he will win the trades. If Galio can't do this, you should be able to get a free trade onto him if you dodge his charge.”

Dr Eggmund says “Gosh Galio is annoying, a lot of CC in his kit and damage output can mean bye bye to Vladimir, however he is a melee champion so poke with Q as much as possible in lane and if he doesn't build any kind of magic resist early PUNISH HIM. Build Protobelt and get a magic penetration item like Void Staff or Liandry's to burst through this man. See how the lane play's out experience with a few Q's and E's to see if you can all in him later.”

Glasletter says “Laughable matchup. He can't do anything without his taunt landing and it slows him for easy bindings.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Another AP counter, save your E until he decides to charge in so he can't taunt you. Other than that, poke him constantly and wait till level 6 to all in him.”

Reason97 says “Galio doesn't seem all that intimidating in a 1v1 because, for the most part, he isn't, but he's very tanky, making him hard to burst in turn. Focus more on keeping him low and scared than trying to kill him, and try to be ready to wall block him or run if you see him winding up for his charge engage. you beat him in range, but if he CAN get into your face, he has the potential to chunk you for decent damage. At 6, your all in is better than his, but when laning phase is over, always keep in mind he can be at any of his teammates sides at ANY point, never assume you and an enemy are caught out in a 1v1 with eachother, cause he'll be there to turn the fight before you know it.”

Eoba says “This matchup you just rush tiamat and mobis and roam. Aftershock won't allow you to kill him in lane. He'll most likely build 2 dorans and seekers as well.”

LunarVortex says “Your spellshield counters his entire kit pretty hard. He is also an easy Q target because of how telegraphed his dash is. He will try to push you in and roam. Warn your botlane in advance. Try to be wherever he tries to go and countergank him since your Q and E shut him down rather hard.”

Coldsong says “Galio has always been an easy matchup for Talon, due to the fact that he is only tanky against AP. But after they removed his Flash + Taunt combo, it got even easier. His ult however is still decent at counteracting your roams, so be careful when he ults.”

xXkillercrackXx says “Tanky, has tons of waveclear, has CC, and can match your roams while giving a team mate damage reduction. Pretty hard match up. Farm the best you can and try to net your ADC some kills early on so they can hopefully deal with galio later.”
[10.18] How to play TF like Apdo (Best TF in the world!) by xXkillercrackXx | Twisted Fate Player
elnino9 says “Close to an unplayable lane but managable. He has no serious kill pressure unless you mess up somewhere, other than that you both just sit back and farm. If he gets a gank, immediately try to shunpo away. Ganks are you worst enemy in this matchup because Galio is a great setup for a gank with his taunt. He has a free magic shield, don't hard poke him. Focus on farming and being in a safe distance. You CAN kill him early on if he takes too much minion aggro because galio mains get cocky and play very aggressive against a Katarina. Fight him with Q dagger setup on minion, then EW, E out. Do this when he just used taunt or just used his passive auto attack so he doesn't trade back for a lot.”
SkellyBirb says “Galio is an anti-mage, but he'll struggle to keep up with your roaming, poke, and burst. Just be careful of his dash, as the combo that follows can deal a lot of damage.”

laoshin3v3 says “Galio is bad at the meta, try to outroam him and poke when he trys to farm”
[10.18] Lao's Vladimir - Kneel before Vlad by laoshin3v3 | Vladimir Player
Veralion says “HoB/DH/beads. Galio has been significantly buffed recently and is now a bit of a pain. His Q poke hurts now and his punch is much faster and will catch you if you slack with your positioning for a fraction of a second. You can still move out of the way with your W up, but you’ve gotta be quick. Never let him taunt you. If he walks up and lands a taunt into a full combo, you’ll be chunked down to one third from full. If he punches and falls just short he will probably spam and land taunt, then his Q and passive will still do about a third of your life. Stay the hell away from him until 6 and just farm up under turret. You still can’t poke him down easily, so just prioritize farm and wait for a gank. You can handle getting nicked by his Q here and there. He’s heavily incentivized to build full AP now, so he’ll squish with a little bit of help. Once you have your ult, you can kick his ass by baiting his punch and immuning his follow up taunt. Be mindful if you go for a roam that he doesn’t follow, ult the fight, and ruin your team. ”
AP Shyvana Mid: The Lizard Wizard by Veralion | Shyvana Player
Tauricus2017 says “His Q is very powerful zoning ability that you don't want to get into. Try to bait his E and then dśidestep it from the sides. Engage right after with all your tools. Don't forget to ping your team when he achieves level 6 to warn them from possible engages.”

Grimkyle says “Galio is one of the best counters to fizz at the moment I recommend starting W into him and have him shove u into tower getting as much cs you can at level 3 with corrupting pots active plus your ignite you can look to all in him or ask your jungler to help because if the galio knows what he's doing he probably has tp so not only does he have a global ult but also a global spell ”

Poppi Sama says “Can easily all in you with his knock up taunt combo, following with his ground pound that will easily burst you down. Continuously poke with Q, because of the true damage on the orbs way back.”
Frixen says “Nothing you can do in lane against him, but he can't do much against you either if you keep safe distance and auto-space well. You can try poking him, but he is the ultimate anti-mage so I doubt that'd work out too well as he is often fairly tanky. Get Cleanse and he will never be able to do anything against you. Out of the lane you have much more pressure and splitpush opportunity.”
lessbedone says “Get Cutdown. Use Conq/Pta.”

K3y5 says “You can't kill him without getting two successful ganks. Don't bother poking with Q because his Q does more damge. His Auto - Q does more than your whole combo. If you jump on him, he will taunt and knock up.”
Melyn says “Galio is similar to Blitzcrank in that you can win slowly but lose very fast. In most situations, if he CCs you, you're dead. Poke him down as much as possible (with E since it's such long range, backing off when it's on CD) and don't get baited by his aftershock's tankiness.”
Melyn says “Galio is a fairly tough matchup. He can be hard to poke out of lane and his combo can be devastating, especially when coupled with a jungler. I recommend trying to push him to turret. This will help you get gold, discourage roaming, and it will be difficult for him to kill you since he must use abilities for farm.”
TheCatOfCheshire says “He got great dmg, and even if you hit all your spells, you don't have enough mana to kill him, he got great roaming and a good wave clear. But it's a melee so poke him with AA in early, you can even buy a doran blade as first item for that.”

Zing's Guide to Mid Gnar (10.16) (WIP) by GnarZing | Gnar Player
Yuki H. says “Gets fairly tanky late, but once again his dueling potential isn't as great against any AD champs due to his magic damage shield. From early on, try to stay with the caster minions to force his Q out to shove the wave into you. Your passive and Q allows for very easy last hits under tower from level 1. Make sure to poke him a good amount with abilities, and possibly all in him at level 5 or 6 (before he gets too tanky). If he takes aftershock, make sure to dodge his knock up and taunt.”
[10.19] Zed + Matchups by Yuki H. | Zed Player
Big Shawn says “Galio is a good champ versus Mages and other classes which base on Ability Power. Ekko can do fine against Galio, but he will be able to apply more pressure towards you as he gains the Magic Resist Shield through the passive of his W-Ability, which makes him slightly tankier. Therefore it is crucial that you poke him with your Q-Ability, and importantly bait his taunt. You never know where his jungler might be. Therefore it would be wise to ask your jungler to gank.”
Ekko | Big Shawn's Mid Guide by Big Shawn | Ekko Player
Snow Day Zoe says “He is a mage counter. play safe, no kill lane.”

Gageowago says “(This is still a matchup that I am not too familiar with since he is not picked often, but there are a few tips I can give.) Try and keep your distance from him in lane, and don't waste too many spells on him because of his passive magic shield. If he steps up to you mirror his movements by backing up. If Galio manages to hit his knockup on you then you are about to lose a lot of health from his combo. After he chunks you back up immediately instead of going for a trade because his aftershock will absorb a lot of your combo. Try and keep away from minions to avoid Galio's poke damage. Another thing to remember is that Galio cannot flash taunt you anymore, so do not flash if he's channeling his taunt far away from you.”

Be careful of his flash taunt, as it will screw you over for sure, and cause the trade to go in his favor. He might even be able to CC you long enough to kill you if he hits the taunt.”
Sanctuar says “Playing against Galio, keep a few things in mind: First, always punish him for lasthitting due to him being a melee champion, and second, have your E ready to keep your distance from him, should he try to engage with his E. Past 6, his ultimate allows him for quick engages on other lanes, but for that he still needs to get in range. Keep the river areas or jungle entrances warded and follow up if needed. Wit's End has seen major success in this particular matchup, combined with Conqueror. Otherwise use Rylai's or Twin Shadows to keep the distance.”

Capparelli says “NIGHTMARE of a lane you can dash onto him without getting knocked up up, his taunt will cancel your canopy, he can match your roam at 6, pray your jungle knows to gank if he uses his E, get Hexdrinker if you start to fall behind and Tiamat if you plan to just try and roam”

Noodles912 says “He is just annoying. He has a magic shield and is tanky with tons of cc. You only can sit mid and farm all game. He roams way better than you. When looking for a burst trade, use E to dodge his dive, but its not a bad idea to dodge the taunt. PTA is a must. Ask for ganks if possible.”
BabyTwisty says “You can play pretty aggressive lvl 1 but back off a bit when he hits lvl 2. Don't roam a lot post 6 due to his ult but try to roam early. Try to get your jungler to gank early due to him getting melted by AD champions, if your jungler is ap than you have to hit your stun to win the 1v2.”

8wolf says “Don't let him get close. His short range make him a good target for poke and you can zone him out and deny him cs. Careful if he tries to engage. He's very tanky and you probably won't kill him, so just farm up and try not to die.”
Daedralus says “I put him on level 1 difficulty but do not underestimate his damage of course! If you consistently get hit by his E Q AA combo, he will get you eventually if he trades without you being able to life steal. This is an unlikely scenario however as you will surely be able to bite him after his dash, but it is ganks you must watch after as his initiation if on target is deadly. But considering that he doesnt even have an ultimate that can be used against you in all situations and that you can also prevent him from using it with E or R (dunno if you can follow him with Q but that would be dope) kinda limits his plays. He simply doesn`t do enough damage in a certain amount of time to kill you, thus difficulty 1.”

NebuIa says “Galio should be easy to deal with, but his jungler will probably try to camp you. Just try to stay back and avoid his E. He shouldn't ever be able to kill you. If the enemy jungler is scary consider cleanse, and maybe phase rush to help run from him.”

LightningDeceptigon says “He's tanky and has a decent amount of burst. Be careful of his engages with E and then his taunt. His kit gives him a magic damage shield, making it even harder to kill him.

SirZeros says “So the reworked Galio is a bit stronger against you, due to him beeing kind of tanky. The good thing about him, is that it's predictable when he wants to engage on you, so abuse this to land a stun if possible. Otherwhise just try to poke him with your Meeps and try to dodge his E at all costs.”

Euphoric Toaster says “Really easy lane early on, you get to poke and deny him a lot and set him behind pretty far. After 6 you get a much bigger power spike because his Ult is a team reliant Ult. This matchup would be even easier if it weren't a couple of things. First if he goes Mercury Tread + Rod of Ages Or full tank, you will be unable to kill him ever and it will turn into just a farm lane. Secondly, if they have a dive jungler (like Jarvan IV) his ult can be deadly.”

CC Diana says “Galio is an interesting matchup. All of Galio's abilities scale with AP which makes it likely for him to build it instead of MR. Assuming he builds AP, you should be able to 1v1 him once you hit 6 since he won't have the health to survive your burst. Be aware that given the nature of Galio's abilities, he may go Abyssal Mask for a first item and it's at this point where you'll want to call your jungler for help. Make sure you take TP for this matchup because he can outroam you hard with his ult so you'll want to be able to follow up when appropriate.”
maplecat21 says “Before he was gutted and became a support, he had lane pressure on you but got outscaled. After that, he lost his lane pressure. I'll be adjusting his threat rating as people play the recently changed version, but I doubt he has any pressure now.”

HAMMERSLAYER says “A strong jungler with a lot of CC, he has a good and relatively fast clear, he will gank any moderatly extended lanes without much effort while trying to be a supportive jungler with quite a bit of damage for his team.”
MadMaster523 says “Galio is just like every other tank out there. He's going to be a pain early game, but you'll eventually be able to split push him to death since he's probably going to be opting for a tank build and gnar loves shredding tanks.”

The Jhin Cena says “YOU MUST ALWAYS BAN THE GALIO! He is a highly played champion in Twisted Treeline, and unless you are lucky that he is trash, you will have a very difficult lane. He is super super tanky and yet can manage to kill you in seconds when he gets fed. You can hardly even farm passively because his Q will leave you behind your turret spam pinging for a gank. Not only that, but his ult can especially screw you over on this map. An example is if you are about to kill a squishy like Vayne with your E and Flash down, Galio can fly out of nowhere and by then you're dead. As a melee there is not much you can do when laning against a Galio and you should probably request to trade lanes.”

Witwickies says “Unless you will let him come close to you, it should be easy match-up. Be aware of possibility of W+Flash, so when he uses W without reason, be careful. Just poke him to death and make unable to even come to minions.”

undeadsoldiers says “Galio will try to poke you and farm with his Q. Try to stay away from your wave so he can't do both. Stay out of his W range and poke from afar. Be wary of flash-taunts, though. His E is telegraphed because he moves back before dashing forward, so you can put a bubble in his path. You can also use your E to stop his ult channel. While your full combo may not delete Galio since he's decently tanky, you can definitely put a dent in him.”
Doctor_Dr says “How to counter: Poke constantly. Never get to close otherwise you lose trade.”

MidoriyaOGado says “Raramente você vai ganhar do galio por ele ter o kit perfeito contra fizz, Tendo ele um pocke constante com seu Q e sua resistencia mágica baseada na passiva de seu W. Fica bem dificil do fizz jogar. Procure outra lane para focar contra galio raramente você vai matar ele. tente usar a janela do lv 3 para forçar o flash dele ou possivelmente matar ”

Itsyaboyorchid says “This kind of threat isn't noted because of his kill pressure, but because he can easily set up ganks for his JG and force you into a 2v1 situation. Other than that laning will be extremely slow. Focus on farming, make sure to poke with auto attacks whilst Galio walks up to farm.”

JuaniG17 says “Tanky but not a threat as long as he doesnt poke with his Q”

DaBigNut says “Don't get taunted and watch out for the q due to it's high damage output, ya can be easily ganked if he lanes against ya.”

DuhBrandon says “Probably a gift from god if you fight this as you are building an anti tank build just one warning though, his ult will be a problem once you start roaming because as you might know he can go back up any teammate.”

Bengineer says “R.I.P: His magic damage reduction with his Shield of Durand is insane, you will not even dent his health. If you run into him often, permaban him over Anivia and Karthus”

Snowyfreezer says “Hes decently tanky so you can't really kill him and has lots of CC”

Fyiree says “Galio just isn't Strong, start W and then poke him out lvl 2. Try not to lvl 6 all in him, as his AP shield will stop you from 1 shotting him”
Unsealed Diana by Fyiree | Diana Player
Smol Jelly says “Galio's got the damage reduction and built in magic damage shield that makes lane rough for you. His dash is linear so you can catch him, but save your burst for when his damage reduction is on CD. Also, ping immediately when he leaves lane, as he has one of the strongest roaming potentials for a Mid Laner.”

Tips Against Galio in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Profesor APH. says “he is like 4.5/5 cause you cant dash away from his w and he can dash to you with his e can give shield to adc from r pretty hard matchup, but when galio trying to run away with e you can use ur q with calibrium next w than q with gravitum and he get stune with his dash is pretty hard to dodge aph ultimate and pretty good counter for him is cresendum + gravitum and thats why he isnt extreme”

yers says “Super thick. It also doesn't help that he has a magic shield built in his W to negate more damage from you. If he closes in on you, expect to take heavy damage. YOU CAN PUSH HIM AWAY WITH E IF HE'S IN THE MIDDLE OF CHARGING AT YOU.”

fumpadumpus says “You shred his armor and his taunt doesn't work that much on you since your damage is AA focused, you can poke him hard at early and bully the lane.”

Terrific says “Dodge his dash knock up and also his taunt. His Q does really like almost no Damage at all unless he goes AP. Punish him for his melee range.”
LupinTheCat says “this is 33 feet tall, how is a star the size of my foot going to hurt Galio? he even has a magic shield built in his kit Galio will probably never be a big problem to you, as always with abilities like his ult, anticipate the Q+E combo at the best right time”

Shimaru says “same as alistar but less CC.”
Eccentricks says “Woah, watch out, here comes Galio! He is mainly played Mid Lane right now, but even if he isn't, Hero's Entrance is a damn beautiful spectacle of your death. But, other than that and his high damage, there is nothing else to fear really. Just aim for the AD Carry instead when poking and try not to get burst down.”
Some Basic Thoughts on Twitch by Eccentricks | Twitch Player
Fruxo says “He has CC and can do a ton of damage with his Adc if you are not careful, keep in mind that he has the ability to dash on to you in order to set up a stun, which can lead to your death or your supports death if you aren't careful enough.”

DioX says “Taunts you then the enemy bottom lane kills you. Your support must be a Soraka or Janna that knows what the hell she's doing. I rarely see a Galio support in Ranked.”

Darkkin says “CC forte e poke muito chato e uma Ultimate que pode virar uma Team Fight. Quando ele for usar o E dele, Use o seu E para pará-lo e então puna-o porem quando ele começar a carregar o W se afaste e então volte a puní-lo. --------------------------------------------------- CC strong and very annoying poke and an Ultimate that can turn into a Team Fight. When he's going to use his E, use your E to stop him and then punch him out when he starts loading the W away and then punish him again.”
