Galio Matchups Overview

Galio General information

Galio tips and tricks

Always play respectfully once you hit level 6. Your Ultimate Hero's EntranceR is pure utility and it cannot be used in a skirmish as effectively as most enemy champions.

You can set up your Jungler to gank your lane easily if you have the wave pushed towards you.

Before roaming with your Ultimate Hero's EntranceR, use your Winds of WarQ and Justice PunchE to push the wave quickly. Follow that up with an empowered AOE auto-attack to one-shot the wave.
