Intro



Whats Up, My name is WreckPT and I´m a noob playing in the EUW cuz NA sucks hard. Now seriously, if you clicked this guide you were hoping for super in-depht information on Alistar, but this is only a WIP so it only contais the basics like runes, masteries, builds, etc.

Why Pick Alistar

Alistar its not a champion for everyone since its not a intuitive champ like soraka or blitzcrank because when you play soraka or blitz your main function is heal to protect your adc from taking damage and making your opponents rage quit(soraka) or hit a hook and waste a flash or get a ez kill(blitz).
When you play alistar you have to now WHEN AND HOW to combo, heal and so on.
Alistar has a bit of every support:
Heal
CC
Almost Unkillabe

Also, Alistar counters almost every "popular" supports


Guide Top

Pros/Cons

Pros

+ Hard CC
+ Very Tanky With Unbreakable Will
+ Can win Games
+ Spammable Heal
Alistar is one of the best supports in-game, variety of combos can win teamfights keeping your team/ADC alive. Your spammable heal helps peeling.
Cons

- Low Mobility
- Passive Can steal CS and Take Turret Aggro
- WQ Combo is very buggy and it can be cancelled
- A Bad Played Ali Can Lose TeamFights
Unfortunately, Alistar has low mobility and needs very time to really understand how to WQ QW Flash+QW etc. You will get flamed if your team lose the teamfight because you are a support and supports are considered secondary...

Runes

Runes

Greater Mark of Armor
9

Greater Seal of Scaling Health
9

Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
9

Greater Quintessence of Scaling Armor
3
I Usually pick up this runes cuz it will help you win all trades in the laning phase and peel for your adc.
You can also go for Flat AD Reds since they help you win AA trades or Flat Health Yellows for early game tankiness

1/5
Wanderer - Great For Roam And Warding
Secret Stash - More HealingYEY
Meditation - More Mana, More Engages, More Peel
Bandit - No comments here.
Intelligence - More CDR More Abilities YEY
Windspeaker's Blessing - There´s actually a lot to say here but i will resume it:
Alistar doesn´t need the DMG reduction from Bond of Stone because Unbreakable Will is very powerfull. Also, since alistar is a teamfigher Windspeaker's Blessing is very good on him since he can buff his entire team.
Unyielding - Simple: More Armor And MR
Explorer - Great For Roam And Warding
Runic Armor - Gives YOU more shields( Locket of the Iron Solari) and heals ( Triumphant Roar)
Insight - Reduced CD on Flash = More Flashy Insec Crazy LCS Plays

Skills And Combos

Trample
// Alistar WRECKS nearby enemy units when she uses a ability for 3sec
// The Damage is very tiny but its enough to help push or take turret aggro and steal CS


Pulverize
// Alistar SMASHES the ground knocking up enemies
//Alistar knocks up enemies and stuning them for 1.5sec
//Deals Magic Damage
//You can Pulverize Flash for a surprise Q
// Flash cancells Pulverize animation leaving no time for enemies to react´
//Practise this on customs since its hard to get going


Headbutt
//Alistar Headbutts the enemy knocking them back
// This Is your Insec Crazy LCS Move
//You use it to start your WQ Combo Which is basicly Malphite Unstoppable Force
//Deals Magic Damage
//You can Flash to be behind a enemy and them Headbutt them under tower.
Spoiler: Click to view



Triumphant Roar
//Alistar Motivates Nearby Allies HealingThem
//The mana cost on this is very high so don´t spam it much
//The heal is very tiny until level 3-4
//Every time a enemy unit dies Triumphant Roar has his cooldown reduced for 2sec.


Unbreakable Will
// Alistar gains attack damage and takes 70 % reduced physical and magic damage.
// On cast, removes also disable working as well as Cleanse
// This is why alistar is the invincible cow. Turn this on and run away from five crazy enemies bronze chasing you using all theirs summoners spells and ultimate abilities.

I usually go for Unbreakable Will Pulverize Headbutt Triumphant Roar puting a point on my Triumphant Roar early on.
However against tough matchups i recommend maxing Headbutt first because you can exploit their mistakes more often.

Items (WIP)

Starters



Relic Shield
// Basic Starter Item
// Basic Support Item with gold generation and HP.
//Unique Passive gives you more money in the bank


Health Potion
// Take 3
// Gives you 450 effective health


Trinket
// ALWAYS start with the yellow trinket





First Back


Targon's Brace
// Secondary Support Item
// Get on your first back for more gold and HP


Sightstone
// Must Have In Any Support
// Vision Is A Key For Victory
// I will include a Warding Chapter Later On


Sweeping Lens
// Vision Denied
// Since Vision is Key On LoL You have to take it away from your enemies
// Buy It After Sightstone







Core Items


Face Of The Mountain
// Third Tier Support Item
// Not Really Much To Say But Active Gives MaxHP % Shield


Frozen Heart
// CDR, Mana And Armor All A Peeling Support Needs
// This is completed with a AS Debuff Aura
// All for 2.8k Gold


Boots Of Mobility - Alacrity
// Great For Roaming And Warding
// Gotta Go Fast


Ruby SightStone
// Gives You More Map Control
// Remember Vision= More Chances To Win
// More Wards = More Chances To Win
// Extra HP is a bonus




If needed Armor


Randuin's Omen
// This Is great against crit-based champs
// Since Frozen Heart Is core you won't need armor that early
// The passive is also great for peel and catch people that are running away


Zeke's Harbinger
// Bind it to an ally for more power
// Buy this if you are ahead since the passive can decide teamfights
