Thinking of taking on Alistar as my go to tank champion. Strategy details to come although some of the usual basics still apply here.

1. You are not DPS! That is....your role isn't to rack up the kills. You do pack a mean punch but focus on assists.
2. Your role is to stun and knock enemy champs back to your team/lane partner
3. You eat turrets for breakfast. Use teleport to get in and take them out.
4. You have no CC break and thus are very vulnerable until you have some health and defensive abilities accumulated. Play accordingly.

Spells:
Teleport: You are a turret wrecking machine. This is perfect for popping in and taking them out when unprotected.

Flash: Positioning is everything.

Items:
Really looking to boost movement speed and AP. Feedback is welcomed.

Catalyst the protectorCatalyst - 290Health/325Mana boost plus restores health/mana upon leveling. Keeps you in lane longer.

Boots of Mobility
- I am a big believer in that speed (particularly early) gives a large advantage. Ali is all about getting in the right position to send your opponents flying back to your team.

Rod of Ages - Work for this early as it provides additive bonuses over time. 60AP/450HP/525Mana plus additives.

Abyssal Scepter - AP plus MR for those pesky casters.

Thornmail - More magic damage when/if you finally get focused.

Deathfire Grasp - 60AP/15% CR and an active that is going to hit for around 37% of their health in end game.


Really curious on some feedback for the items and the purchase order. Trying to balance AP with tankiness at an affordable price is a challenge. Thoughts?

Thanks for looking and have fun!

Cow Power!
