Summoner Spells Back to Top

Summoner Spells


Smite

Pretty obvious - you will be jungler, so you need smite.

Flash

Alistar has 2 basic combos, one of them is the 4.png + pulverize.png. Pretty devastating and very hard to dodge it, so you need flash for it. Also, it's a very good escape tool if you have done some mistakes or you want to steal drake or baron.

Masteries


Maybe, that's the first point where we can argue about things. I will list those points below, so you can see my explanation.

Wanderer vs. Savagery

Why wanderer? To be honest, wanderer is one of my favourite masteries. 3% more movement speed out of combat can be really decent, if you buy 3117.png + you have Cloud Drake(s). Also, it helps ganking from one lane to another, being in move as jungler to be in right places in right time is very important.
Savagery is very very good mastery for junglers, but i think, not for Alistar. Your Passive (alistarpassive.png) and Q (pulverize.png) is AoE, you dont benefit from Savagery and these are your main jungle-clearing-tools.

Vampirism vs. Natural Talent

You don't really benefit from spell vamp, so the extra AD/AP/level looks better for me.

Skills


Pretty simple. Your pulverize.png is your main jungle-clearing-tool, so you must max. it first. Later, you will have enough AP to have enough heal from your triumphantroar.png, so after 9, you should max. headbutt.png.
Read about combos below.
In the most of the time, you need your triumphantroar.png to get enough gold for your first-back-items. BUT, if you consider a level 2 gank, you need to pick headbutt.png second. Also, you need harder pull at Gromp or Golems, so you will have enough HP to gank and don't die. Remember, that if you gank right after your first jungle camp, you are pretty weak, so don't overextend it, just go in with headbutt.png + pulverize.png, and grab at least a flash from the enemy.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    I prefer Refillable Potion over simple HP potions. Developing that to Hunter's Potion will give you enough sustain to stay in jungle and gank.
    After first back, you should buy at least 2 of these.
    Mobility: Most of the time. Makes ganking much easier. Lucidity: If you are fed, or you need CDR really bad.

Core Items

    Both are pretty awesome. Get Tracker's if you need much vision. Get Stalker's if you need to carry lanes. After these items, you clear jungle pretty fast, so buy one ASAP.
    Your main damage item. Always buy that.
    You will need some AP boosting items to deal enough damage. I recommend buying these most of the time.

Situational Items

    Also good if you need much armor.
    Trouble against AP/AD? No problem.
    Pretty situational, but those stats for the price are considerable. If the fights last long, you might buy one of these.

VS

Amumu

Medium

If he builds AP, pain in the ass. Anyways, fairly easy. Your ultimate counters his bandagetoss.png and curseofthesadmummy.png.

Consider buying 3001.png.

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

If he goes AP, 3001.png is your best friend. Dont go 1v1 fights against him, but easy kill if one of your laners help you out.

VS

Diana

Hard

After 6, she melts you down with ease.

Use much wards, bait her if you can and always buy 3001.png!

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

If he engages, most of the time he is not alone. Just headbutt.png him away. Don't fight too long.

VS

Ekko

Medium

All you need to do is being careful. Always dodge his stun, use combo, if he still can stun you, just ferocioushowl.png.

Never fight him for too long.

VS

Elise

Hard

You have just hopped on the NOPETRAIN.

She has everything you hate: sustain, damage, escape, cc.
Buy 3001.png and watch for counterganks, she is very weak against them.
Use much wards.

VS

Evelynn

Medium

She is pretty weak against cc, but if she menages to survive your combo, she will poke you to death.

Countergank is her hugest enemy.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Easy

He is pretty annoying to play against, but not hard at all. You can just ferocioushowl.png his cc away and use combo where he will loose his 80-85% of his hp mostly.

Care with his crowstorm.png tho, its just pure damage.
You can consider 3001.png or  3152.png.

VS

Fizz

Hard

You need some serious skills to beat him, but it's not impossible.

You can ferocioushowl.png his fizzmarinerdoom.png.
You can headbutt.png him away while using his fizzpiercingstrike.png.
Countergank him and make him use his fizzjump.png.
Buy wards, cuz if he can use his fizzjump.png well, you are dead.
3001.png is must-buy.

VS

Gragas

Medium

Hardish.

If he builds AP, you are mostly done, so you need to rush 3001.png.
If he builds tank, you won't kill him 1v1.
Counterganking his blue early on, or forcing him to make mistakes while ganking can make you feel better a bit, but not too much.
Feed your carries.

VS

Graves

Hard

In 1v1 it's chanceless, but he is really vulnerable to counterganks.

He will always gravesmove.png after you used headbutt.png, has great damage and slow.
If he is fed, buy 3025.png.

VS

Hecarim

Medium

He kills you only if he is fed. Great movement so be careful. Try to gank as much as possible to take advantage.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Buy some armor and he is done. Really fragile if he builds full AD, so counterganking him can lead to easy win.

VS

Jax

Medium

Huge damage after 6, good escape. Defend your laners, farm your camps hard and just don't let him get fed. 

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

In 1v1, it's chanceless, but he is a paper if you countergank him. Use this to your advantage.

Use wards!

VS

Kindred

Easy

Forcing him to use kindredR.png is the key to win this matchup.

If you have lead, maybe you can 1v1 him.
Take care, he has damage!

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Just destroy him with your combo and counterganks. Has huge damage, so take care!

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

You are just chanceless against a good Lee Sin whole game.

If he goes damage, just run and place a million ward.
Counterganking him might help, but as i said, a good Lee will win everywhere you go.
Ban him if you can.

VS

Master Yi

Easy

He hates cc, you have much.

Never go 1v1 fights, otherwise, easy.

VS

Nautilus

Medium

Tanky af, you will never kill him alone.

Also slow, so take advantage of that and gank much.
Feed your carries.

VS

Nidalee

Hard

Small cooldowns, huge damage. Speaks for itself - that's not your matchup.

Her fragileness is the key. Counterganking her and turning back to her is your only way.

VS

Nocturne

Medium

If he uses his nocturneshroudofdarkness.png well, you have not so much chance, so rely on counterganks.

VS

Nunu

Medium

Insane clearing speed, good movement.

Secure buffs and call for help to kill him.
If he dominates the map, you are pretty done.

VS

Olaf

Hard

His olafragnarok.png is your biggest enemy. True damage and huge movement makes him your nightmare.

Use wards and bait him.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

Annoying passive, but fairly easy if you have follow up.

VS

Rammus

Easy

He has not so much effect on you. Just keep your eye on the map and defend lanes from his insane movement.

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

Countergank him to hell. That's the only way.

VS

Rengar

Medium

You will never win 1v1 fights if he builds some sustain, but if not, he is a piece of cake.

Counterganks makes him cry. A lot.

VS

Rumble

Hard

Counterganking him might help, nothing much more. He is stronger than you.

Use much wards and buy 3001.png.

VS

Sejuani

Medium

Same as Rammus. Very good ganking potentials, but relys on his team, so force him not to make his carries fed.

VS

Shaco

Easy

Care early, use wards and he is done.

VS

Shyvana

Medium

Hardish.

Insane damage and really good movement.
Never 1v1 with her, but counterganking helps a lot.

VS

Skarner

Medium

Won't hurt you much, but he is pain in the ass when gets some takedowns.

Countergank him back to his jungle.
Don't fight near his passive crystals.

VS

Trundle

Medium

Insane scaling, you are chanceless against him in 1v1, but forcing him to retreat after he used trundleE.png will punish him pretty hard.

VS

Twitch

Easy

Countergank him to hell.

Initate only if you know you will kill him! (Mostly, you will.)

VS

Udyr

Hard

He will just make you feel pain while playing early.

Counterganks might help, make him loose movement.

VS

Vi

Medium

Hardish also, but she is really weak against counterganks.

Use this.

VS

Volibear

Medium

Try to bait him under turret with counterganks or counterjungling. He is stronger so you need to be very careful.

VS

Warwick

Medium

CC vulnerable, so counterganking him makes you feel better.

VS

Wukong

Easy

Care with him early, later, he is easy kill.

VS

Xin Zhao

Easy

He has pretty nice damage, but later, you eat him.

VS

Zac

Medium

If he goes AP, you are mostly done.

Countergank him to hell, that might help.

Combos Back to Top

Don't even try to play Alistar jungle without knowing his combos.


The headbutt.png + pulverize.png combo


This is your main combo. You will use this to gank lanes, iniatete fights, basicly, all the time if you want to do something.
Practice makes perfect. Don't be afraid if you miss it, practice even more and you won't after you have learned how to do it the best.


The 4.png + pulverize.png combo


You can use this combo if you can reach close to an enemy.
You press Q, BUT before the animation ends, you 4.png on the enemy and you will stun him immediately. After that, you can headbutt.png them backwards, or anywhere you want, making this combo one of the most devastating and undodgeable in the game.
Practice that as well, not so easy to land tho.

Early Game Back to Top

Pathway


Simple. Gromp/Golems -> LEVEL UP! -> gank botlane for first blood or at least a flash.
Next, you can go to midlane for the same. If you do well and also your laners know what you are planning to do, you just got your team 2 kills in 1 minute.
Always ward your buff (ask toplaner for the same).
After that, you just keep up the same. Gank all the lanes as much as you can. Keep your eye on counterganks.

Mid Game Back to Top

Your role in teamfights


Mostly, you should initate and knockup as many enemies as you can. Try to focus on the enemy carries and give your team good opportunity for followups. Watch for objectives, make plays to grab them.
