Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello everyone, this is JoonExCell here with my second guide, I haven't been up and running with guides lately, but I will be starting them again. It just takes time. Anyways lets get started.
Lets talk "ROLE". The role for Alistar can be 2 different things, Jungle or Tank or support tank.
For summoner spells i like to take
Flash and Heal
Flash is really helpful for Alistar . with his and is very effective.
Heal : even though you have a its a great utility to have when you are in sticky situations.
Other summoner spells that you can use :
Exhaust : great for escapees (use this if you think you can lane longer without Heal
Clairvoyance : This is another great tool you can use for more map awareness, counter jungle, and helping out your jungle.
Lets talk items. When you start out get a Faerie Charm with 3 Sight Ward and one Health Potion or Mana Potion w/e you prefer.
Early game : Boots of Mobility (great mobility item for Alistar
Shurelya's Reverie (Make sure you activate when you need to run or catch up.
Aegis of the Legion (Gives good armor and magic resist with health.
During your mid to late game get : Thornmail (if they are to heavily in AD.
Warmog's Armor if you think you need health.
Force of Nature For those heavily AP users.
For skills you will need to max out Triumphant Roar This is for you and your laning partner, maxing it will increase the healing.
Then max Pulverize, Headbutt, and finally the ultimate Unbreakable Will
What all Alistar players should do is first, make sure Flash is ready to go, then you can Flash behind an enemy for example Graves and then Pulverize them , and finally Headbutt them to your turret or partner that has damage and take that kill.
Alistar is very good to have on the team. He is great in team fights. ALOT of people like to focus me as Alistar for some reason. That gives the chance for your teammates to get the kill on the enemy.
When playing ranked games, you have to be consistent, by this i mean keep warding at all times, yeah i know its hard to make gold as Alistar early to mid game, that's why i chose Greater Quintessence of Gold as my choice of Quints. +3 gold per 10 seconds is really good and helpful !. You can get Greater Seal of Gold to help you a bit, i like the extra armor on Greater Seal of Armor
