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.
Hi and welcome to my first guide about the powerful cow alistar.when i started playing lol i always searched for a champ which can put out much damage and can tank too i tested a lot of characters but alistar was the one i liked the most because he was able to do all the things i wanted .I know that there are so many ways to play him and all of them are good but i like this ap build the most .
You're asking yourself why the hell 2 doran rings ? Yeah ...2 doran rings give you 200 live +30 ap and a lot of mana reg and you can spam your heal for 930 gold . If you think thats useless then take what you want but i like these ;D
You can get rod of ages a bit earlier than sheen but buy it only earlier if you die often or you think that you need it .
You can get a void staff insteat of a dorans ring too this gives you some more magi. Penetration which is good if you play azainst a tanky team.
Trinity force or lich bane ? I prefer lich bane because it gives you more ap and mana which is more important than crit chance or somethingelse for an ap alistar
So why moonflair spellblade ? It gaves you 50 ap and if youre playing against a fiddle its very usefull because the paranoia is not so long at you .
.. In late game you sell youre dorans but i think thats clear ;D
I prefer ghost and flash
Ghost because alistar is really slow and when you combine it with your ulti you can get out of a lot situations
Flash because i love it . Its great to get out or in fights and it can save your life .
Yes there is a way to jungle alistar and i think hes one of the greatest junglers
If you want to jungle you have to start with a cloth armor and 5 health potions then you can buy your normal equip
Route: first smite ( you should take it) the big wraith kill the others normally then go to the wolves and always focus the big ones first then go to 2 little golems then go back for equip and then go to big golem(blue buff) and at this point you can gank or get the red buff too and than go for a gank .
First i skilled every ability the same this made me heal much faster but my damage output in the mid game was not so good so i tested a lot of skill sequences but this one is the best because you can put a lot of damage in early and mid game without high equip but heal a bit slower(what is not so bad)
I like the ap runes most but you can also put in only magic penetration runes or only ap but i like a little mix of them . You can also put in mana runes but if dont waste your attacks to much you wont have mana problems with alistar.
Every one says you want to be a ap alistar ??? You have to 0/9/21 but i dont think so . I think its good to have 9/21/0 because with the 21 points in defense you get a little more tank what saved my life lots of times . If you want to have 0/9/21 than get it but than explain me when do you have mana problems with alistar (ok i have them sometimes too ^^) but you cant survive with mana insteat of armor ;D
