Informations

Hi,

thank you for reading my build. I hope so it's helpful for you. Why you should try get Alistaras support? This champion is very useful in early-mid-late game, why? He got two stuns and heal. He doesn't heal too much but enough, beacause he heal all allies nearby - minions too. If you try build my Alistar you will have free tank in late game.

TAKE ALI AND GO FOR GLORY!

Good and bad Alistar

GOOD

    He need a lot of mana

Spells

We take Flash for escapes and to do our combo - which is very hard to do without this spell.
Exhaust help our carry in escapes and catching enemies.

Others combination?
I preffer Flash with Exhaust, but if you really want try something new you can exchange Exhaust on Revive, Promote or Smite.

Promote helps our carry with killing minions (early game) and gain an advantage on line. Useless in late game!
Revive is good for team fights and it's very helpful when enemy jungler gang your line.
Smite only for help our jungler (role as support not a jungler), smite on red, blue, dragon and baron in late.

Ranked play

Last item is random, if you have problem with casters you can buy Banshe, but if assasins makes your thinking harder you can just buy Thornmail.

As firsts items we can buy:

Boots of Speed
Health Potion
Health Potion
Health Potion

second
Boots of Speed
sight Ward
Health Potion


third

Cloth Armor
sight Ward
sight Ward

or

Cloth Armor
sight Ward
Health Potion
Mana Potion

If we chose second option we must remember about ward grass near river.

Wards


Legend
W - Wards
Green Line - Wards in early game
Orange Line - Wards in mid game
White Line - Wards in late game

Don't forget about your role in team, you must protect your allies, so when you put more wards on paths and grass you probably save their life.

Experimental runes


Why?!
You can check this runes, at start we got little ap for better healing and made more dmg from abilities.
Alistar has more AD for better hang, he has more resistance to magic,

Team Work

Remember! Don't leave your carry, he need you. If you wanna save his life use first Q anad after W to push rival away, if you have to use Exhaust. Your primary task is save your carry and help him with killing enemies. In team fights go first to the battle, use your ULTI when you have 50% hp, use Q to stun group of enemies and W for push the most powerful enemy to your friends.

Questions and answers

Why we need ap?
We need ap for healing our friends in team and we hit little stronger than normal support.
He is strong?
He is really strong, you can tanky in early-mid-late game.
What is the best combo?
FLASH+Q+W, trust me no one survive this combo, with little help from your ad carry you can kill all enemies.
