Champion's Lore



As the mightiest warrior to ever emerge from the Minotaur tribes of the Great Barrier, defended his tribe from Valoran's many dangers; that is, until the coming of the Noxian army. was lured from his village by the machinations of Keiran Darkwill, General Boram Darkwill's youngest son and commander of the Noxian expeditionary force. When returned, he found his village burning and his family slain. Bellowing with rage, he charged an entire regiment of Noxus' elite, slaughtering them by the hundreds. Only the intervention of some of Noxus' most skilled summoners checked 's rage. Brought in chains to Noxus, spent the intervening years as a gladiator in the Fleshing, pitted in endless battle for the entertainment of Noxus' wealthy leaders.




's once noble soul slowly became twisted, and he would have been driven to insanity if not for Ayelia, a young servant girl who befriended him and eventually arranged for his escape. Suddenly free, joined the newly formed to fight as a champion, hoping to one day exact his final vengeance upon Noxus and find the girl who had renewed his hope. Initially unwilling to cater to his celebrity status as a champion, has since discovered that there is power in fame, and he has become a vocal advocate for those whom the Noxian government treads upon. He also calls to light things that the Noxian military would prefer remain hidden -- something that has made him very unpopular with Noxus' nobles. His charitable work has earned him several philanthropic awards, which serve as an interesting contrast to the rage and destruction he brings to the .

If you intend to grab the bull by the horns as a summoner, might have something to say about that.

Introduction


Hello everyone, I am Bronzer, and this is my Alistar Support guide. I have worked hard to make this guide the best I could, and I would appreciate any and all feedback that you guys may provide. Alistar with this build is a full tank meat-bag that knock up every thing on his way ( and his W range ) while providing enough Support for your team-mate.

Without further ado, I present to you, my dear readers, my Alistar guide. I put a fair amount of effort into this guide, so I do implore you to reconsider any downvotes pending the actual trial and testing of my guide that I imagine you are planning to do. And above all, thank you for taking the time to read this Alistar Guide.

Counters to this build



These are some enemies champions that you should pay attention to when you are playing as Support Alistar with this build

DANGER LEVEL: 2. Nothing is worse than pulling a FREAKING COW right in the middle of your team. So when playing against Blitzcrank, all you need to do is shield your Carries from him.
DANGER LEVEL: 3. Squishy champions like Nami can easily be killed with Alistar's combo, so you don't need to worry about those squishy.

DANGER LEVEL: 4. Both champions have ton of hard CC, but Alistar has an advantage that he can counter Leona's abilities with his own.

DANGER LEVEL: 7. Alistar will have a tough time dealing with Tahm Kench.Although both of them are very tanky, Tahm Kench has the advantage of Insane Damage at Early game. And Tahm Kench can easily protect his team-mates from your combo and bring them back to safety.

DANGER LEVEL: 8. Morgana can easily disable your combo with her E. Without his combo, Alistar is just a friendly, meat-bag cow.

Pros / Cons





+ Very tanky, hard to die.
+ Good Healing from Passive Triumphant Roar in Lane
+ Become Super Tanky with Unti Unbreakable Will
+ Very High Damage at Early Game.
+ A ton of Hard CC.



- Combo is quite hard to use, need time to practice
- Lack of damage from Mid Game.
- Your Skill can troll your team, especially your W Headbutt
- Hard to escape from combat while your abilities are on cooldown.

Runes Reforged



Extra damage for you, pretty good if you want to play aggressive at Early Stage of the game since Alista is a shock-damage type champion.
Since your abilities have a ton of CC so Aftershock is pretty good since it gives you tankiness and damage if you land a hard CC on an enemy champion.
If your bot lane is weak compare to the enemy bot lane, Guardian might be a better idea.
*cough* *cough* ***ING ton of HARD CC *cough*
You still think Cockroach is hard to kill after you see an Alistar with Conditioning?
6000 health is not a bad idea.
The Koreans choose this, so why not?
More Cooldown Reduction = More chance to KS with Headbutt

Summoner Spells



This is a common Summoner Spell for escaping from the enemies or to assaulting the enemies team. How to use it is up to you.

You are a Supporter so it is recommend to use this.

Situational Summoner Spells ( not really recommend )


I, myself, prefer to use Ghost than Flash because Flash is better at escaping through terrains while Ghost is better at chasing enemies and it works well if you have bought Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
Just some more tankiness for you and your ADC, or you can go for Barrier if you want.
Use this to counter high healing ability champions ( such as Soraka, Karma, Dr. Mundo, ... ) or to Kill Sercure your ADC.

Abilities




In this part, I will try to explain Alistar abilities in a short way.
  • Passive Triumphant Roar: If there are enemis die near you ( 7 creeps ), you will heal yourself and your nearby teammates. If a enemy champion dies near you, you will instanly heal ( you don't have to way for 7 stacks ).
  • Q Pulverize: You knock up nearby enemies, deal a THOUSAND DAMAGE and earn yourself a sweet PENTA KILL SERCURE.
  • W Headbutt: You use your SUPA POWER to become SuperCow ( based on SuperMan ), you fly straigh to the selected enemy, push him back and deal damage.
  • E Trample: You deal damage to all neary units for a few seconds. If you deal damage to an enemy champion with Trample, you will get stacks. At 5 stacks, your next auto attack deal extra damage and stun that enemy.
  • R Unbreakable Will: You decide to put on your Armor Kelvat Vest, you receive almost zero damage for some seconds and remove all disabilities on yourself.

Team Fights



During team fights, Alistar should be the one to go first due to his tankiness and his hard CC. You should try to focus on Enemies' Carries or any squishy champions.
With you tankiness, you will be able to survive the fight, or at least deal enough CC to the enemies.
Also, try to protect your carries from the enemies as well because without your Carries you are just a meatbag.
