League of Legends (LoL) Question: How to Do Headbutt Pulverize Combo with Alistar?

    How to Do Headbutt Pulverize Combo with Alistar?

    I've seen other Alistars do this, where they use Pulverize at the end of their Headbutt so that the target is not knocked back. How do you do this? I have done it but it's not consistent at all! :(

    Anyone have any tips?

    Your rule of thumb is generally to press Q when you're in mid-air. As soon as you initiate the dash from Headbutt, hit Q. Don't wait for the W to hit first or you'll be too late.

    You basically can't pull off this combo if you have high ping. Some of my Australian friends who have 200 ping can do it, but as I normally sit around 250-300 ping in most games, it makes it impossible for this combo. If you're finding it hard to do, you may have the same problem.

    -Start a bot game.
    -Target your W onto your selected enemy champion.
    -Press Q once you are just starting to charge toward them.
    -Repeat until you feel confident.
    -Faceroll regular matches.

    when you press your W, and you see the cow go, you press Q.

    i find that already being in range with headbut then slaming is easier i can do it fine and ive got 235 ^ ping

    smash q after you w someone ;)
    But i suggest you practice on bots first. If you try it for the first time in normal/draft/ranked, you'd probably knock them further from you which is bad xD

    Once you get the trick on bots, you're good to go.

    This combo is good to have in your arsenal so its worth it to spend some time perfecting it.

    I can tell you for sure that if you have 200 ping and you feel that 1 second delay you can't pull the combo off. You need to press Q right after the animation for W starts.

    This can be a fairly difficult combo to pull off, but it's really effective so I would recommend extensive practice, particularly on bots. The only way to get any semblance of consistency is to do it again and again against bots, then move on to against real players. If you feel that the high-level play is too much, you could even create a new account and practice it on new players (although this strategy isn't always successful, there are a lot of smurfs in the community.

    its pretty hard to get down but when you get it,its easy practice this on bots so Headbutt them right after it Pulverize for me i do it at the same time and i would say i do it 9/10's just got to practice it
