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 My Cows!
I am Kent Milkdose a summoner on EUW. I am currently gold playing almost only alistar on my main and on my smurf. I have played over 800 games with alistar since I started playing in the beggining of season 3.
I have found that the bull has always been underrated, but since the buff in the 4.12 gg rito it's a freaking OP COW MAAAAN. Just take these masteries and you will be able to harrass all day long in lane doing a LOT of mixed AP and AD dmg, carrying your whole team from early to late game.
So, if you want to critisize this guide, I will find you and I will milk you!
These runes dont look like viable. Why mix AP quints and AD penetration marks?
Well, the whole point of this build is taking advantadge of your dominant early ap damage, and becoming an unkillable AD Burst Unkillable MAD COW in the late game, which explains the runes.
The masteries are based on the same argument as the runes. But you still probably wonder why not get some defensive stats?
Your ulti removes all form of crowd control on gives you 70% reduced damage at ALL RANKS which is clearly enough. You obviously need the damage for carry and for some fun now =]
Dorans help you sustain in mana. Sheen gives incredible damage because of the AutoAttack you can land automatically after a headbutt. Try to right click a champion right before you W him and you will get this AA for indredible damage all troughout the game. NP youre welcome. Muuh.
With the early burst and dps you get from this build, your CC and your altimate, Doom bots of Doom are just a bunch of eBays!!!
Depending on how the game goes, you can go for defensive stats or build even more damage to destroy your ennemies if you feel like you will survive fights.
With Alistar's buff and your masteries, you will not run out of mana. Keep your heal at level one and spam it as you need it to outsustain your ennemy with the passive CDR you get on it when minions die.
Max W for maximizing your damage in lane and poke your ennemy. Dont forget to right click them before your W to AA them in their face.
Once you feel he is low enough combo him with WQ and ignite him with some AA to outplay him :3. You should always remind them they cannot milk those FFS.
At the beginning of fights, try to bait a stun on you and then ult immediatly to remove the CC and become invincible.
If you practise alistar a little bit to master his abilities, you will find out the most Hidden OP champion in the game was here right in front of you. Patch 4.12 made his laning possible and comfortable against any champ. If your ennemy laner wants to push, never forget to try to flash him, stun him and immediatly headbutt him under the turret aggro. Youll have to handle minions well tough, care!
If you're exhausted hide in a bush and eat some grass.
With love, Ali
