Introduction

Alistar's Pros and Cons as a Jungler
Pros:

    Amazing ganks
    Becomes very tanky and is able to dive towers at lvl 6
    Strong burst and consistent dmg output

Cons:
    Not fast enough to counter jungle
    Needs to snowball off early game ganks
    Medium Jungling speed


Guide Top

Runes

Marks: Alacrity - Helps with your jungling speed

Seals: Resilience - Makes you more sustainable during the junlging

Glyphs: Potency - Early game damage boost to help secure kills
Quints: Potency - ^

Masteries

This Page is made for AP Bruisers
9 points in Offence for the bonus ap, cdr and magic pen
21 points in Defence for the tanky attributes

Items

I take cloth amour and 5 health potions first so that I have enough health to continue jungling after my lvl 2 gank.

After my first b, I'll grab Boots and a Sheen which I will later build into a Trinity Force

Trinity Force is the main item you'll need for the burst combo, (Head butt -> Pulverise)

For your tank items, build a Fratmas (Frozen Mallet + Atmas)

The remaining items are situational and defensive. If you are tank enough build items such as Abyssal Sceptre for AP + MR. If not just grab a Force of Nature.
For an Amour item build a Sunfires Cape if you are tank enough. If not build a Frozen Heart or Thornmail.

Skill Sequence

For your skills, take 1 point in your ultimate whenever you can.

Take 1 point in all 3 skills first and max Pulverise, Head butt, and Triumphant Roar in that order.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Smite is an essential skill for junlgers to secure buffs, Dragon and Baron.

For your second summoner spell I would recommend either Flash or ghost. Both summoners are really useful for ganks or initiating a Team Fight.

Ranked Play

Map awareness is a key factor in winning games. As a jungler you should purchase wards whenever you can and ward theirs or your jungle. Also help ward areas your support have not been during early game.


Guide Top

Unique Skills

The Most useful skill of Alistar is the Headbutt Pulverise combo. This combo allows you to use head-butt as a gap closer instead of a knock-back while still landing your pulverise.
For it to work you must 1st be in range of your headbutt, once you are mash W -> Q as fast as you can and the spell que should allow you to land both skills.
If you are not in range of the Head butt and you use this combo you will only waste pulverise.

Summary

Well Thanks for reading my guide, I hope it helps you during your ranked games, and please provide feedback on areas of improvements.
