^ how do you plan how building him ? AP ? Tank ? AD ?

I want to go AP tank. But also want to find out how he is most effective

AP tank/roamer is his most effective build

doran's ring (possibly 2) -> boots 1 -> blasting wand -> chain vest or neg cloak -> CDR boots or merc treads -> deathcap -> finish defense item

Instead of dorans, you can do philo stone. Ideally you do philo stone -> heart of gold instead of both dorans, but sometimes you are having a hard time and need the immediate effect of the ring. Kages pick isn't aweful either, and can be obtained as a 3rd gp5 item if you are roaming. Depending on what you are fighting, buy either a negatron cloak or chain vest EARLY (pre 20 mins)

ali's tank is in his ultimate, so the trick to playing him is knowing when to pop it. you want to do it when you are at 40-50% health, or if you are being focused. most ppl see the health bar and dont notice the animation for your ultimate, so they think they can kill you. they are wrong.

Get very good with your headbutt -> stomp combo.
Don't forget that his ult will break out of stuns/roots

always always always take flash/clairvoyance

mpen reds, armor or clarity yellows, magic resist or cdr blues, move speed, health or AP quints.

dorans(1-3)>mobility/sorc/merc boots>sheen>rabadons>lichbane>will of the ancients>void staff>situational item/GA/rylais/hourglass/whatever

Don't need to be tanky because with your ult you can just heal out of any damage and you will also be able to deal massive damage. You can also destroy turrets as lichbane procs 500s to them.

9-0-21 or 3-6-21 masteries.
Flash/Ignite or Flash/Clairvoyance
Solo top or roaming.
mpen marks, manaregen/lv seals, ap scaling glyphs and flat ap/health quints

Start with Dorans.
Buy another one if needed.
Blasting wand
Finish Rabadans
Finish Lich Bane

Optionnals/Luxury items ;

Frozen heart
Randui's omen
Banshee's veil

That works pretty well.

Edit : I forgot Ionan boots after Dorans'.
