Galio, The Sentinel's Sorrow is a melee Champion. While Galio is often played in mid lane, he may be suitable for other roles such as support or top lane too. Due to his passive, Runic Skin, he has an advantage when laning against magic damage dealing enemies. By reaching mid game he usually can clear minion waves very quickly to prevent the enemy champion from roaming. He also has decent poke with his Resolute Smite/Righteous Gust combo, but lacks kill potential compared to other mid laners.

His ultimate, Idol of Durand, is an area of effect crowd control skill that is capable of locking down an entire team for follow up. However, it is his only form of hard crowd control and, once used, Galio's impact on teamfights tends to fall off.

Description

Lore: Long before the regulation of 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.

As Durand crossed the Howling Marsh with his masterwork in tow, he was set upon by Noxian assassins in force. Outnumbered and overwhelmed, Galio looked on in horror as the murderers cut down his charge, executing him swiftly before vanishing back into the mists. Stripped of his reason for being, Galio despaired. For years he remained in solitude, standing vigil over the bones of the master he had failed to protect... a literal monument to his own everlasting shame.

Then, one nondescript day, a sad but determined yordle girl carrying a mighty Demacian crown stopped in the shadow of the great statue to rest. Hidden in plain sight from his unsuspecting visitor, Galio studied the forlorn yordle. She looked as though she too shouldered a tremendous burden. As quietly and as stoically as she had arrived, she departed in the direction of Demacia. This encounter lit a spark in Galio's eye. Remembering the cause that his master had died defending, Galio arose from his silent purgatory and followed in the wake of this brave creature. He had a new reason to live: to fight for the will of Demacia.

"There is no such thing as redemption. Only penance."

Patch History

Patch Notes 6.8

E costs less and gives more movement speed.
Quote.png Galio presents a powerful option for those who like to make a big impact in close quarters, but often runs out of steam before teams start grouping up. We’re tossing him a stone to help smooth his laning interactions (especially when pushed into his tower), as well as enable sweet roaming plays if the situation arises. Unquote.png
  • RighteousGust.jpg E - Righteous Gust
    • COST: 70/75/80/85/90 mana ⇒ 60/65/70/75/80 mana
    • MOVEMENT SPEED: 20/28/36/44/52% ⇒ 30/35/40/45/50%

Patch Notes 5.22

  • BASE MANA: 319 ⇒ 369
  • MANA GROWTH STAT: 50 ⇒ 47

Patch Notes 5.18
"We’ve always felt that Galio’s failure case for his ultimate is positioning, not execution. Limiting the cases you could accidentally ruin your biggest moment should keep you focused on the things that matter; like landing your ult on 5 people (and probably winning)."

  • IdolOfDurand.jpg R - Idol of Durand
    • NO TAKE BACKS:: Idol of Durand can’t be cancelled by movement commands for the first 0.25 seconds of its duration if it strikes at least one champion

Patch Notes 5.12
R's base damage slightly lowered, but has a significantly higher maximum damage. "Once on-par with Crowstorm and Curse of the Sad Mummy in terms of teamfighting terrors, Idol of Durand is a pretty big ask in the landscape of today's game. Fully channeling one through the enemy team's disruption (and onto the right targets, no less) is no simple task, so we're upping the reward for pulling it off."

  • IdolOfDurand.jpg R - Idol of Durand
    • BASE DAMAGE:: 220/330/440 ⇒ 200/300/400
    • DAMAGE INCREASE:: 5% per hit ⇒ 10% per hit
    • MAXIMUM DAMAGE CAP:: 40% ⇒ 80%
    • MAXIMUM DAMAGE OUTPUT:: 308/462/616 (+0.84 ability power) ⇒360/540/720 (+1.0 ability power)

Patch Notes 5.6
E's cooldown gets lower with rank. "As of this writing, none of Galio's basic abilities had scaling cooldowns...UNTIL NOW. Righteous Gust is one of the gargoyle's cooler moves, so we're letting him toss some more tornadoes around as the game goes on."

  • RighteousGust.jpg E - Righteous Gust
    • COOLDOWN: 12 seconds ⇒ 13/12/11/10/9 seconds

Patch Notes 4.21
Don't let me get in my zone. "Galio's ultimate has two major risks involved - either he's crowd-controlled during its channel or his opponents buy Mercury Treads. We like the teamplay that comes from coordinated interrupts but find it a little sad that tenacity messes with his flow so much. Is now fixed."

  • IdolOfDurand.jpg R - Idol of Durand
    • "NEW" YOU'RE STUCK IN HERE WITH ME: Idol of Durand's taunt is no longer reducible by tenacity.

Patch Notes 4.10
Magic resistance per level for Galio has been commonly requested by gargoyle fans around the world and, given our nerf to Athene's Unholy Grail (an item typically considered 'core' on Galio), we figured we could give him a thicker skin.

  • General
    • MAGIC RESISTANCE PER LEVEL: 0 ⇒ 1.25
