Introduction

Welcome to my guide for Alistar on Twisted Treeline (3v3).
Alistar is one of the most viable tanks for TT and has a powerful earlygame as both a tank and harass.
This is a work in progress. Please give me some feedback so I can improve my guide.

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Extremely tanky
Great roamer
Very easy to farm
Good early game harass
Heals
Heavy Crowd Control effects
Ult is similar to cleanse

Cons:
Countered by heavy true damage teams (Olaf, Irelia) and percent based damage (Kog'maw, Brand)
Unable to do much damage unless properly farmed
Countered by silence

Masteries

I go 0/21/9 picking up most defensive masteries while getting dodge % as well as the movement speed increase which works well with Ninja Tabi (explained in the item section).
I take death time reduction in utility due to the power of having that 10% reduction especially in a map like Twisted Treeline. It works very well lategame and with this build I never have any mana problems.

Laning

Often with Alistar I will take the solo lane if our other solo option is our only ranged. Many might disagree and say that a carry should always have the solo lane, but if you follow my guide closely and are able to pull off some good ganks bot your carries will be more than farmed. Besides, it is better for both of your teammates to be present as Alistar makes an excellent ganker. Alistar can hold his lane very well and maxing out pulverize first allows for great harass and very powerful farming capabilities. I have yet to face someone who can outfarm me in a solo lane.
Early game you should be watching for gank opportunities. If you see your enemies overextend or a fight start in bot it's often OK to use your flash through the wall to get there quickly as you will be the tide-turner in any 2 on 2 fight that may occur. You should enter fights with a headbutt -> pulverize combo using pulverize as you are mid-headbutt so the enemies aren't knocked back but instead get knocked up directly after you charge. It is important that you follow your opponents closely to get the bonus damage from your passive and use your heal to keep your passive up as you chase them down. With sheen you will have a deadly nuke.
