Abuse the Meta as Alistar (Unstoppable Korean Builds)

By xDopii
Introduction
Hi I'm Dopi, a platinum 1 support main in EUW. I main tank engage supports with high CC and Alistar is one of my favorite champions. In this guide I will show you how to use him to abuse the current Gargoyle Stoneplate meta and win more games than ever! :D
Pros and Cons Back to Top
Pros:

+Nearly unkillable in fights
+High CC
+Great Engage
+Decent Sustain
+Can easily punish bad positioning
Alistar is a strong tank Support with great CC. He can set up a lot of engages and be very strong in teamfights as he is nearly unkillable with his ult.

Cons:

-Bad engages can be punished
-Doesn't do well in most matchups

While Alistar does have a lot of utility in his kit, it is very predictable and can be countered by a lot of abilities with good reaction time. Bad engages by him can also be punished and can easily lead to his death if his teammates do not follow up quickly.
Gargoyle Stoneplate Back to Top
The main item of every build will be Gargoyle Stoneplate. This is currently one of the most overused items on tank supports especially on the korean servers.

Passive: If 3+ enemies are nearby,grants 40 armor and magic resist. When activated, increases health by 40% but reduces damage dealt by 60%. If 3+ enemies are nearby, instead increase health by 100%.

The reason why this is so insanely good is because teamfights happen a lot, especially around drakes and they easily help us use our passive to gain a huge amount of HP. This greatly improves our survivability as any champion and makes us nearly unstoppable in teamfights while also providing a decent amount of armor and magic resist.
Abilities Back to Top

Triumphant Roar [Passive]




Everytime an enemy dies near Alistar he gains a stack. Upon reaching 7 stacks, he heals himself and nearby allies. Uses instantly when an epic monster or enemy champion dies. This ability has a 3s cooldown.

Pulverize [Q]




Alistar smashes the ground dealing magical damage to nearby enemies and knocking them up into the air.

Headbutt [W]




Alistar dashes to an enemy, taking their position and dealing magical damage to them while knocking them back a far distance.

Trample [E]




Alistar tramples the ground dealing magical damage over 5s to nearby enemies. Everytime he hits atleast 1 enemy champion, he gains a stack. At 5 stacks, his next basic attack against an enemy champion deals bonus magical damage and stuns the target for 1s.

Unbreakable Will [R]




Alistar removes all disables on himself and reduces a high percentage of all incoming magical and physical damage for 7s.
Runes Back to Top
Aftershock: Increases your armor/magic resist and deals a little bit of damage to nearby enemies after immobilizing them. This is a very good rune if you want to be a bit more tanky and survive more enemy attacks.

Font of Life: After immobilizing an enemy, your teammates heal for attacking that target. Grants more sustain to your allies.

Demolish: After standing near an enemy tower for a few seconds, your next attack on it will deal increased damage. Good for improving your snowball in lane and destroying towers more easily.

Conditioning: Increases your armor/magic resist after 10 minutes. Great for being more tanky and increases your survivability.

Second Wind: After taking damage from an enemy champion, restore a percentage of your missing health over time. When taking damage while this is active, the duration refreshes.

Unflinching: Increases your Tenacity for every ability and summoner spell on cooldown. Very useful for reducing the duration of the enemies' CC and being more mobile.

Cosmic Insight: Grants 5% CDR, Increases your max CDR by 5%, 5% Item CDR and 5% Summoner Spell CDR

Perfect Timing: Gives you a free stopwatch after 14 minutes or earlier depending on how many takedowns you get. Also reduces the cost of Gargoyle Stoneplate.

Triumph: Takedowns restore 12% of your missing health and grant you an additional 20 gold.

Legend Tenacity: Increases your Tenacity for every takedown you get. Great for being more mobile.
Conclusion Back to Top
In conclusion I would say Alistar is currently a very decent champion. He is very tanky and has great CC so he can set up a lot of engages. Using Gargoyle Stoneplate he is even tankier and literally impossible to kill in combination with his ultimate. I hope this guide will help you in your future games and good luck :D
