Hi guys, I've recently started playing Alistar jungle after playing him as a support champion as my main. His jungle clearance isn't the best but I love the CC he can bring to team fights. Although I have been relatively successful I don't think my build is quite there yet. This is what I usually build.

- Hunters machete + 5 pots
- spirit stone + boots of speed into boots of mobility
- spirit of the ancient golem
- Shurelya's Reverie
- Runic Bulwark (If support isn't tanky e.g. lux/nidalee)
- Frozen Heart

Thanks

you can still try Boots of Speed+3 somehow. scary ganks but you'll have to recal soon.

i'd recommend you to ignore Spirit Stone's upgrades for some time and get Locket of the Iron Solari ASAP (provived you use the active properly). if you started boots+3, upgrade to Boots of Mobility before anything else.

totally not n00b cow jungle bc he sucks but still very effective.

Yeah ever since the change to Spirit of the Ancient Golem, i'd strongly strongly strongly recommend you avoid upgrading spirit stone until much later.

Pheyniex is right that Locket of the Iron Solari should 100% be in your build. since it's just so cost efficient and stuff.

I'd also recommend adding and possibly rushing a Sunfire Cape. From my experience, this significantly increases alistar's clear time, and damage output, while also adding to his tankiness.

Actually, i don't think you really need shurelya's reverie until late game - you might not need to buy it at all! Your headbutt pulverize is a fine initiate to any team fight for what it's worth.

I'd strongly strongly strongly suggest you itemize more health in your build as opposed to resistances, since you have your "I take 30% of the damage you deal me" Unbreakable Will there to help you out :>

Good luck perfecting your build
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

I might argue I'm not a fan of Sunfire Cape. you might say it helps clear/push/peel, but i'd rather get Randuin's Omen (more expensive and stuff but I'm really not into cape) but Frozen Heart can help you in that regard too. you can also stack a neat amount of ap if uber ahead, like Zhonya's Hourglass and Abyssal Mask.

Alistar is stil the same cow he always was.
The problem is, with all the new access to starting wards and slower clear times.. Junglers in general are forced to play a bit more passive in the early levels. This new functionality really doesn't function well with Alistar at all due to his slow clear and amazing early level ganks. He still 'works' but he is A LOT weaker tha what he was in season 2.

On the right track with builds though, definitely rush the Locket of the Iron Solari then Aegis of the Legion.

Mundo goes where he pleases.


And pleases, where he goes.

dont forget how sexy Iceborn Gauntlet is on him
Gave you a good laugh or helped? rep+ so i can know ;)

Thanks to TinyStar, Jhoi, Xiaowi, Virus, Bard and Arcana(eww)...for my signatures!

Elohell is like Irelia's stun: if your real level is equal or lower than the level you are in, you're STUNNED there forever. If your actual level is higher than the level you are in, you're just SLOWED in your way up.

Thanks for the response, I tried the locket and it worked quite well. I too am not a fan of the sunfire cape, the passive is nice but the stats aren't fantastic. Any opinions on a warmogs on alistar?

warmogs is always nice. you just have a problem with it being an item with no utility. =)

also, for the same value and 63% of Warmog's Armor hp, you can get Rod of Ages, and for a bit more gold, Randuin's Omen.
