Introduction

I've been playing Alistar for a while now and he is an awesome tank/support.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:

    + Awesome CC
    + Is a mythological creature
    + Can resist a lot of poke
    + Can secure kills for team

Cons:
    - Mana Dependent
    - Really slow
    - Without team cannot do anything.

Skill Sequence

I grab
1 point in Pulverize at level 1, Headbutt at level 2, and Triumph Roar at level 3,
I then max Headbutt first because it's his main damage spell and can often get that last bit of damage need to kill a running enemy.
Pulverize second because of its short range it is only good if the enemy is close by or already CC'd by your team.
And Triumph Roar last, because wit his build his HP Regen keeps his health up early to mid game.

Masteries

I go all 30 in defense because Alistar is not all good against ranged champions. With his talent tree this gives him the best defense and keeps his HP up if the enemy lane is good at poking him.
It also allows him to stay in the fight longer at early level due to his increased defense.

Runes

I chose MS Quinces because Alistar is really... Really slow. This allows him to at least be a little faster and gives his Mobility boots more speed.

His AD runes because since his Ultimate gives him AD he often gets around 150 AD which is good if you want to smack the low armor baring ADC's.

His Glyphs are there to keep his MR up against AP champs>

His Seals are there to keep his Armor up much like his Glyphs do.

Items

I rush Sunfire cape first because it gives him 115 Armor early and gives him a second passive to complement his actual passive in fights.

I then go for Spirit Visage because it boosts his MR up to 120 and gives him some much need CDR.

After that I go for Warmogs because it ups his HP to around 3k so with his defensive stats and ultimate, he is almost immortal in combat.

After that, I go for either Banshee's Veil or Randioms Omen depending on who is fed.

Summary

All in all, Alistar can be a superb champion that brings a lot of CC and support to his fellow team mates. Hopefully he will rise to the top of champions again.

As like all guides, this will never work 100% and most times you'll have to change builds mid-way though the game to win. Hopefully this guide brings some new things that you'd try.

Thanks for reading.
