Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png6.pngthese are for run away or for run behind someone that is running away (lol?), after ghost buff on 6.10 this is a really viable choice on Alistar
7.png1st support spell, u can regen heal to u and your ADC (+ a little bit of speed) if your adc goes barrier 21.pngtake this.
3.png2nd support spell, u can slow the target (slow movement and attack), put this on the adc for a won trade
14.png3rd and last support spell, this can don't look as a support spell but in some matchups it can be so useful, for example when you need more kill potential in the early gaming but this will cost your 3.png. I usually pick this only when i'm against a 16.png because it lower the hp regenerations on the target or when i have a crazy adc with 3.png7.png (new meta or bronze mind, i don't know but this happens). 

3.pngthis is in my opinion the best choice because u can regen heal already with your passive and usually heal is picked already by the adc and when you use the heal on a just healed champ the effect is less strong.

alistarpassive.pngThis heal a good amount of heal and don't cost mana as a passive but you must always check when it will proc for help you and your adc with enemy pokes and with trades.
triumphantroar.pngReally nice damages and a good stunn, pretty hard to proc against some supports, don't stop to move remember that it is better to stunn him for your adc than to leave him run away because you wanted to do 2 more aas.
headbutt.pngThat's nice for save u (or your adc) throwing away the enemy or for throw the enemies to your adc (or turret) (also you can make a wombo combo with Q)
pulverize.pngThis is for the knockout and also help you for proc the passive
ferocioushowl.pngThis one is for survive, very useful in teamfights and in the early as in the late for towerdiveshqdefault.jpg JUST TANK IT!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Relic Shield is your gold item. (how u can gain gold without kill minions? using a gold item. the best gold item for Ali is the shield, sharing gold with your adc each 2 waves and regenerate hp to both. Pots are changed in cookies and have longer effect (maestries). And wards are for prevent ganks before sightstone. Get the bigger minions and the meelee ones for more gold.
    wards can save u and your ADC and don't cost a lot. Buy when u need. With pots u don't recall and your ADC will be happy :)
    this is an alternative to the 3 bisquits and is pretty nice c:

Core Items

    1. Try to get both at 1st back, but 1st of all must be the sightstone. Don't forget to change trinket when you get the sightstone.
    2. Now, the boots. mobility or swiftness for speed. ninja or mercury for defense. Mercury or swiftness for hardly crowd control opponent team. try to grab the boots of speed as fast as possible after the sighstone and the targon brace, but don't run too much to evolve them.
    3. Go for this before close your sightstone and before close your targon brace. This item is pretty crazy, this can totally change the outcomes of a fight
    4. Now is time to end this. Face of the mountain is a great item don't do strange things like sell your support item for another item, no just don't c:
    5. Someone prefer to don't close this at all or to close it at end after all the situationals item, not in my opinion. Wards are a big big part of the game and since the buff on this item it is a 100% core item for alistar. In effect this item now provides cdr on summs, so you can flash, stunn with your q, do one or 2 more steps and use your w for kick the enemy right on your allyes or in the turret.
    Extra gold? Buy Buy Buy!

Situational Items

    trinity? usually i don't build that because isn't a support item. But If your team need more damage... Or you're simply 20-1 and you're waiting for opponent's surrend
    These are 2 good items if you want your team do more dmg. Abyssal Scepter Ap team or Ap carry / Zeke if feeded Ad
    good item when your opponent team have hight healt regen, lifesteal, spellvamp... Cooldown reduction, mana regen and AP. (like mundo, trynda, akali...)
    Tanki items. Warmog always good when going tank. banshee, spirit -hard AP opponent team- Sunfire, thorn and Deadman -hard AD opponent team- Deadman is so good on Ali, you can reach insane speed and give a nice slow on enemies, work really well :3
    tanki-supp items. gauntlet is for slow - cdr - mana - armor (not bad) omen - health and armor + slow effect. Best item so far if the enemies have a Yasuo. righteous glory look very nice on alistar.
    full build? Buy this each time you recall/die (that don't need a free space on inventory)
    if you need a little help for push... ohm is great also for dive turrets... zz'rot: check author notes :P
    at lv.9 why not?
    Why? And Why not? Look notes :)
    If you want to do more dmg but you want a boost for your support role too
    frozen heart is pretty good thanks to his low cost but great great power. 20% cdr, a lot of armor and a passive that so much times is forget but that is really good
    Magic resist item. I really like the mikael, his active is BUSTED.
    You have already enough tanks? Why not? That's pretty good, not at all but it's good
    Another great item for Teamfights and if you get exploded each time and build more armor or magic resist would be useless
    Extra gold? Buy Buy Buy!
    Super good item, feeded but squishy carry? go for this and you can carry as support!
    If you have ornn, when you are full build, ONLY WHEN YOU ARE FULL BUILD, go for this
I'm so sorry for sooooo much situational but... THIS IS ALISTAR!



ZZ'ROT PORTAL. 
  Zz'Rot_Portal_item.png


Now... what i think.
I think that item could be an alternative to banner of command 3060_32.png or ohmwrecker 3056_32.png for push.
There I put a little map that i find online and i think could be so useful, because the portals can be destroyed.

sjhavdg.PNG

gold item + sightstone
2303.png
these can be nice items, they have inside the 2 most important supp items... BUT you loose some stats and your item active and Hey! You need that Shield on Ali!
SO... here my opinion, better continue with 2 different items but if you really pref this go for isn't a total wrong choice.
If you go for 2303.png you can look for 1334.png cause it don't give cdr and also after the rework these boots are more for suppi! but only if you are going pretty well :3
And WOW! ruby sightstone have been so buffed 


some examples of full builds (the order of the items don't matter, just full build example)
3401.png2045.png3009.png3109.png3190.png3107.png team fight reliant, mixed ad and ap enemy team
3401.png2045.png3117.png3190.png3109.png3512.png if your team can't teamfight (ex: opponents got Malphite + Yasuo + Sejuani)
3401.png2045.png3047.png3109.png3143.png3110.png full ad enemy team
3401.png2045.png3111.png3107.png3190.png3222.png full ap enemy team







So i started to use ali jungle and OMG is op as fu*k *-* i'm in love
i give you here the build,this isn't a full guide. Skills order:(Q, E, W, Q then continue maxxing RQEW)
op ganks with W-Q and really this ONE SHOT! nice clear on jungle too thanks to the nice dmg and the heal
3027.png1402.png3158.png3089.png3157.png3100.png a bit tankier
