Why Alistar tank?

I gotta be honest and say that I saw in LCS that they were putting him as a viable top pick for team ranked. The whole Trinity force and Shiv idea is picked up from the LCS.
Since I main jungle I decided I'd give it a try, and what can I say, its a success.

4 out of 4 games won first did 2 normals then 2 ranked.

I hope you guys will find use in this build and that it will help you progress.

Creeping / Jungling

You can start red with this build though you have to ask your top to either scout or/and ward your blue since its heavily required.

Remember when you jungle to maximize your potential of your passive by waiting between Q and E.
Try to make sure you dont mess up your autoattack between abilities to maximize your jungle speed.

When you got mobility boots make sure to try and make ganks pretty often, it gives you a lot of easy cash and xp.
When you do gank, make sure you try to dodge any possible skillshots to make most use of your heavy movementspeed from mobility boots, even if you're "almost there" if you understand me. You would want to try to get infront of the enemy so if you take damage before you get to the enemy champion, then its gonna make the gank a lot harder. (This wont be a problem mid/late game)

Team Work

Dont expect to get major killing sprees and stuff. You should know that getting kills is most likely NOT happening, you will however get insane amount of assist cause of what you do + your heal for those you miss.

When you got full jungler item, mobility boots, Trinity force and ult lvl 2 then your ready to tank the entire enemy team in teamfights. Try to flank them and go in as soon as you take the first hit pop ur ult and ur set. Team is supposed to follow up since you're most likely the focus for the first few seconds.

Your goal is to Q as many as you can, if the tanks are still near their carrys, stun their tanks as a peel-play for your carrys. As long as you got ult up, the enemy carrys can hit as crazy as they want, they will only tickle you while your carrys demolish enemy tanks.

Red runes I picked hybrid cause I found them the most effective, period.
Yellow runes I picked armor cause you're gonna need it for tanking the jungle early.
Blue runes I picked 3 flat 6 lvl magic resist cause its nice to have some flat MR for early mid ganks.
Quint runes I picked movementspeed to maximize alistars playstyle of being able to chase enemies and deliver free enemy kills on a silver platter for your team.
