Introduction

hello everyone, I´m ASJU4, a LAN player. I dont start playing Alistar until a few weeks ago, even when I have it and his unchained skin since I start to play. When I start to play with him, I identify all his potencial, as a support and as a tank. But this guide is about Alistar support, so, if you want how to kill enemies as a cow, search other guide.

Pros / Cons

Pros

+ Great CC
+ Good armor and amgic resist
+ his combo "Q+W" is very usefull on ganks or when an enemy try to scape.
+ big muscles
All the CC that he have is just awesome, using his classic combo Pulverize + Headbutt correctly, can be the diference between a pentakill, or, an enemy ace. ok not so a big diference but it can be a very help for the ADC. his Triumphant Roar, even when is almost useless, can save you or your ADC, giving all of you the enough life to run away of the enemies sucessfully.

Cons

- Extremely slow
- big mana costs
- almost useless "E"
- easy to poke
As every champion, he has his strengths and his weaknesses (almost the champions that are on his week of launch). his extremely low speed makes him a easy gank objetive, more if he dont have his ulti. his mana costs are TOO DAMM HIGH, making his early game more hard than Malphite, Galio and Skarner together.

Runes

For runes I recommend:

Runes

Greater Glyph of Scaling Health
9

Greater Mark of Scaling Ability Power
9

Greater Quintessence of Gold
3

Greater Seal of Magic Resist
9

Greater Glyph of Scaling Health To make sure of not lose your tanky capacity of tank, mixed with your support work.

Greater Mark of Scaling Ability Power To try to be a more help in teamfights than other supports like Sona or Soraka, and talking of Soraka, I will made a tank AP top guide of her later.

Greater Seal of Magic Resist To prevent damage from the enemy enemy AP carry if he tries to gank the lane, and when the enemy jungler is AP like amumu or some shacos.

Greater Quintessence of Gold For more gold, as a support we cant farm, so we need gold generation, gold generation, and MOAR gold generation.

// I considered this as a standar support masteries, more if your using Alistar, or Leona, Blitzcrank, Galio or a support Shen. Fleet of Foot is a very good option to increase the low movement speed of Alistar. Meditation and Expanded Mind to make a little easier his early/mid-game. strenght of spirit, Recovery , Veteran Scars and Juggernaut increases his tank capacity, Alchemist and Culinary Master to have mor survivability in early-game. Greed , Scavenger , Wealth and Bandit , to get MOAR gold. Inspiration help us to be at the level of our allies. Wanderer to scape from combats and return faster to the lane. Block and Unyielding to endure more hits, and let the ADC attack or scape.
