[2] Skills
Colossal Strength
Alistar deals 20/40/60% additional damage to turrets.

I really like this Passive Skill in my build because it helps me getting down some towers by the time my enemies arrive, so it's really helpfull since earlygame to late game.
Alistar smashes the ground, dealing 80 / 125 / 170 / 220 / 270 (+100% of ability power) magic damage and tossing all nearby enemy units into the air, stunning them for the duration.

What about its uses:
It helps you running back to tower if you're getting killed, so, when they're near you, use it, go to brushes and go back to tower.
It helps starting a teamfight. If you get an enemy with pulverize, be sure of going in front of him and Headbutt him, sending the enemy champion to your allies.
You can use it in early game: Get in brushes near the edge of those. Wait until your enemy approach and use pulverize. Your allied champion should be a DPS and you both will kill that enemy.
Use that against Cannalization spells like Nunu's ultimate. It will make your enemy to get angry with you by interrumpting.
Alistar charges at an enemy and rams them dealing 90 / 140 / 190 / 245 / 300 (+100% of ability power) magic damage and knocking them back (does not stun).

Really good skill, it helps you running back to tower obviously, to help a friend or just to send your enemies to your friends.
Use that against Cannalization spells like Nunu's ultimate. It will make your enemy to get angry with you by interrumpting.
Triumphant Roar
Instantly restore 60 / 90 / 120 / 150 / 180 (+40% of ability power) health to himself and half of that value to surrounding allied units. Cooldown ticks down by 2 seconds each time a nearby enemy unit dies.

A good and usefull skill in early game and in late game too. It helps you getting some HP to your friends and obviously, yours too. It will restore you a bit ammount of HP that will be enough to resist some attacks. Its cooldown ticks down by 2 seconds each time a nearby enemy unit dies, so you can use it so much times in early game and help you and your friend to stay in lane and level up.
Unbreakable Will
Alistar gains 60 / 75 / 90 physical damage, and takes 75% reduced physical and magic damage for 6 / 7 / 8 seconds.

A nice ultimate. It helps you running back, tanking some teamfights and just surviving ultimates like Kartus' one. It helps you getting down some towers and killing enemies, not easy, just REALLY easy.

[3] Runes
9x Greater Mark of Insight. (Thanks to Chaotic Bliss )
Really, this isn't my idea, but he gave me that and I thought it was fantastic to use with Alistar, really. Magic penetration is really good mixed with AP obviously. It increases a lot the damage you deal with your skills.
9x Greater Seal of Potency. (Thanks to Chaotic Bliss )
This is his idea. It's really good since increases AP at the beginning of the match so you'll get some AP to be more effective at early-game phase. So nice.
9x Greater Glyph of Force.
It gives you a good ammount of AP at late-game. This will be really usefull if you reach that phase of the match, because you're an hybrid, your money spending is a lot, so a bit more of AP is great.
3x Greater Quintessence of Potency.
Same as the seal.

[4] Items

[5] Summoner's skill
Well, let me explain.
Teleport gives you the chance of getting the enemy tower easy and fast, so you can be really stealth and backdoor with a good use of teleport. It helps you getting back to defence a tower and getting on the fight at some strategy spots as Wards, Teemo's mushroms and Shaco's JITB.

Exhaust gives you a good manner of running back, avoiding enemy's attacks and getting him slowed, so it has a really good ways of uses.

Something you can use too is Flash, if you like getting on your enemy or in the middle of the fight, use Pulverize and then own; you can use Ghost, to get enemies; and you can use Ignite and Cleanse, Ignite if you need more DPS and Cleanse if you think they blind you a lot of time.

[6] Mastery tree

___ /Read Below for a fast info while I'm updating/ ___
How to buy items:
Okay, With Alistar, I always start with Doran's shield and a Health Pot because it helps me keeping on the lane so I can lvl up.
Then, i get Shen, so i can do a good damage when I pulverice, headbutt them or just when i heal my friend or when i've just used my ulti, so different kind of uses that might help on getting a few kills.
By the moment i get Shen, i buy Boots, so I can get enemys.
I often buy mercury because I get a balanced Armor/Magic Resist ratio and I've something to scape at early game. If there are no-AP dps in other team, i get Tabi's or Berserker/Movement boots.
Then I buy guinsoo, that helps on getting some AD/AP and some A.speed, so i can crush towers alone =).
Then hextech, an expensive item but just really usefull, you can use it to get a frag or helping you to get him, pulverize or headbut him.
Then, I get Banshees and by this time, game should have ended or is going to end. If it hasn't, just buy Triforce and be sure you will own.
Get Sunfire Cape if game gets long, you need a bost of armor/health and some DPS/s to get away creeps on killing last towers.

Thanks for reading.
