This build allows you to take tons of damage, and use your two disables in the best possible way. You are not chaser, dps or AP carry.
Your role is to:
-take the point and defend it at all cost;
-defend your teammate, while he is capping;
-knockout enemies out of their points.
You have 2 disables, each with cooldown of ~7s. That means you can use one disable every 3,5s. That's pretty nice. Not to mention, that one of these disables is AoE disable. Keep in mind, that Cap>Frag>Farm.
People often rush 4th point if they already have 3/5, and they forget to defend points. With you, as Alistar the Immortal Disabler, they have higher chance for win. You can have negative stats, but it doesn't matter. Cap, def, win. 3 points are enough to win.
So you have 2 slots left. Take your items carefully. Few words about core items. We pick Guardian Angel as soon as possible (after completed Ionia Boots) for additional armor, magic resistance and second life. It will help you a lot early game. Boots and Frozen Heart: we take them mainly because of cooldown reduction, but additional mana and armor from FH is the thing you would like to have too. Not to mention this slowing aura. Force of Nature, mainly because of high magic resistance.
Last 2 items will depend on the enemy team.
Var 1- "They can't kill me already, and there's no indication that they will ever be able to kill me!"
Var 2- "Their AD carries are too strong!"
Var 3- "Enemies mages own me!"
Var 4- "Everyone kills me so easily! :("
Var 5- "Everyone still kills me so easily! :(("
Using shortcuts (Q,W,E,R) should help you. And hug your point.
These are only suggestions, you can use any items you wish, noone force you to use this build, honestly.
Now, why Exhaust? Well. You can take any spell you want instead of Exhaust. Try Garrison, it will work well with such defensive build. I pick Exhaust, because it helps alot versus ad carries- they can be real threat, at least in early and mid game.
X is you. O is point. Y is your teammate. Now let's imagine that enemies are attacking. I will use E to mark an enemy.
He is coming...
And there he is
What are you doing now?
Lol. And point is yours.
