Well i kinda like abilities of Shen, Rammus, Amumu, and Garen, but looking at the prices, all of them except for Amumu are 3150 IP. All i have at the moment is 1366 IP. So would buying Amumu be a good deal for a tank for 1350 IP?

thanks for the advice so far guys

Right now the tank you could from are most likely :

Shen (Very good tank, nice ultimate, can jungle, do "decent damage, nothing superb tho" taunt too)
Rammus (Very good tank, His Ult is a short CD AoE damage that can also damage structure. Have a taunt, a reflect a slow, and more armor you have, more damage you do)
Amumu (One of the tank that poeple hate most to fight against. He have good tank ability, his ult is a root which is really powerfull. He got a stun and his other skill are AoE damage which so alot of damage)
Alistar (A bit underpower, but he have ALOT of disable / knock into the air, stun, knockback, and a ult that make him almost invicible)
Singed (I hate fighting agasint him. He have a unique playstyle, can kill poeple pretty easy, harder to play than the other, you really have to be more agressive with him)
Galio ( Most likely anti-magic tank. AoE Dmg / taunt ult, very nice tank, more a counter tank but, I like him)
Taric (Support tank, can be built other than tank, but can tank pretty well)
Malphite (He's more an off-tank, or I would say a good initiator with his ult which knockback poeople and he have a slow and a good defensive spell)
Gragas (Same as malphite. But alot of poeple play in AP, which isn't tank at all. He can initiate with his ult, but if you dont built him tank, he won't tank alot)
Cho'gath (A beast tank that can be hard to down if he's max stack on his ult. Altough, he don't do really much in fight, he have a silence and knock but, its far to be the best tank out there)
Nunu (A support off-tank, some poeple play him AP like Gragas, which don't make him really tank. His ult looks like galio, but it slow instead. Can buff his ally, heal himself on ennemy minions and slow poeple)
I'm insulted, you didn't include Nasus. He isn't a pure tank, but he's one of the best tanky characters, imo. I tank with him often with great success.

Amumu has always been one of the better tanks. If you end up buying him, learn to jungle with him. He's a bad laner, yet a great jungler.

Yeah, he's a great tank. If you get bored, you can play him as AP to do some good damage.

I would agree with most here and say Amumu is probably better than Shen but much harder to play. Shen is a great first tank.

I agree with this. Garen is an epic tank, and Rammus is fun to pair up with Fort for super easy early game kills.

I would go with Garen because he is very easy to learn and does well all the way up to the mid game. He starts to get outshined by other champs late game, but that's why this is a team based game anway.
