Threats & Synergies
Can't milk those.
Squishy, easily killed by cc, just another sona.
He can engage very well, but at level six, he will fall off. He is dependent on facing a squishy support, or being able to poke down the other support. Just press R.
Pffffffffffffffffffffffffffft. Make him scared to pull you. Just Q when he pulls you, then knock his adc back, making him useless.
Scary, his passive will cause problems. But just keep him oppressed and try not to engage him when you're low.
She has the healing and the silence, very annoying. She can tank pretty well too. Careful around her, maybe poker her adc down, making her heal them, and losing health.
Just W, and laugh. Because screw her.
She can poke you down! Snare you and go from there. Pre-six, she will outclass you, by far. And your ult won't help against her passive. ;-;
Mayn. Zilean is hard to face. That ult, that Q, that W! Sometimes i think he's ready to watch a movie with all that popcorn!
He's tanky. He's healing. He's outrageous!
Overall, the runes are really up to you! I'm fairly new to alistar, so you could most likely do better with runes. But I still know the basics.
Now, lets talk about the Banner of Command.
This item is a good item, giving AP, Magic resist, and Health. It also allows a minion to become more powerful, and resistant to magic damage. This works extremely well for an alistar looking to split push, or just push in general. (Try to use it on the cannon minion!)
The Frostborn Gauntlet is also a very good item. It gives bonus damage to a basic attack after using an ability (125 base AD.) and gives and AoE slow and DoT damage.
A frozen mallet? This item for the pushing alistar is confusing yes, but still needs to be explained. It gives a slow with each basic attack ,gives AD, and health! This allows alistar to have the slow from the gauntlet, and the slow from this item! Alistar is lacking in CC. With just two moves, which offer cc, and an ultimate, great for teamfights.
