Yeah...I am Nub, and I play alot of tanks, and alot of other things XD. But i recently am starting to get high elo's and just wanted to, ask what is everyone's though on the most playable and viable tanks are? I know singed, amumu, malphite, some others. But i know there are some that are rather situational, like Galio, or Nunu. So some help? I just wanna know these things!
Thanks to everyone that has made me a sig!

All that are either good in jungel or Solo Top.
e.g
Maokai, Shen , Rammus , Galio , Alistar, Cho'Gath, Malphite, Singed.
On top of this full tanks quite a lot of Champs that can build tanky and still be usfull for the team like Udyr, Gangplank, Lee Sin, Skarner, Trundle , Shyvana, Yorick, Garen

A littel list of quite commen picks. Also Dr. Mundo should be better now but i haven't played him yet so i can't tell.

In general you could say every bruiser that can build tanky enough to run in frist.
Thanks lgnition for the Sig.

Neither are full tanks. Leona is a support, when played in her most viable role (bot lane), and Jarvan is an off tank.

The few full tanks that work -
Malphite, Amumu, Rammus, Maokai, Cho

Don't be taken aback by the lack of them, most of the time off tanks are used.
You may have seen the likes of Galio building a Deathcap, then tankily, for example. That's the best way to play him.

Well from my knowledge, the definition of tanks are "Things people will attack". Really who's gonna attack trundle as the tank? He's not disrupting your team at all, maybe some slow, but really not much else : /. Lee sin has AoE and Q to keep you from moving in close onto squishes, so you have to kill him. Etc. ETc. So thats what I wanna know, who do you guys think are the most reliable tanks. Tanks = Full Tanks
Thanks to everyone that has made me a sig!
