Alistar really shouldn't be a tank, he should just take support/AP items because his ultimate does all the tanking he needs.

Not AP. Just support/tank items.

Shredded them to pieces.


Warwick + Yi + Shaco all on the same team = bad bad bad comp.

So much melee.

And how do you like that Blinding Dart from Teemo? ;)

Either way, some other tanky chars are Maokai, Mordekaiser, Jarvan, Garen and perhaps even Galio ^^



If someone can't stay alive in lane for 6:30 seconds on their own then they got problems.

"I also am Otherkin. Whenever autumn rolls around I can feel my kin-type slowly taking over my body. You must know, I identify as pumpkin. I can control it pretty good most of the time, but when September ends, I just cant hold it in anymore. Whenever Im outside I see my brothers and sisters being chopped into soup, coffee, donuts, cake, drinks, bread - ppl even cut human faces into their skin, making a mockery out of their noble appearance. When I see things like that I cant control my pumpkin urges anymore. My natural instincts kick in. I then sit down motionless, while getting bright orange." - Morgana L

By the end game, it's not uncommon for alistar to get a Rylai's Crystal Scepter or a Rod of Ages, which is basically what I meant. Also, alistar can get most of the tankiness he needs from support and AP items, though having a few tank items is preferred.

The only viable AP item for Alistar is ROA. Rylai is not very good.
