But I don't get this whole Alister thing.
I wouldn't listen to this kid, he goes 9/3 in games, thinks he's pro, and camps his spawn to avoid more deaths while his team loses towers and the nexus. Pubstar for sure.

Pretty funny thread

Definition of a tank in LoL: Champion with abilities that reduce incoming damage AND abilities that crowd control the enemy (mostly coupled to crappy damage output).

Therefore Alistar is one of the best tanks in LoL. Your ult is THE tank ability number one in the game. No other ability is more tanky than this one. And you have 2 stuns, one of it is AoE which is totally crazy, as you can use it every few seconds. In addiotion his natural high HP make him even more tanky. His heal is the bonus ability to stay in lane and to destroy towers with his passive. If you have never seen an impressive Alistar you are quite lucky. Watch on youtube the famous Flash-Headbutt-Pulverize-Combos and observe Alistars nice 0/3/17 stats

By the way, he is going to be nerfed in the next patch So he seems to be too strong in the designers view.

How is a tank Alister built? What skills does he take and what order?

I understand his ultimate is amazing and his heal is pretty nice but I have NEVER played with/against an impressive Alister.
Not sure why you got so many downvotes, just asking a question. Anyways, there are 2 reasons Alistar is so good, the first is he has tons of CC and everyone knows how important that is. The second is his damage reduction ultimate which allows him to do two things: a) be very good at tanking towers for his team while taking almost no damage b) he can build whatever way he wants and still achieve the same effect.

EDIT: Sorry for resurrecting, didn't notice the date on thread. Please don't kill me.

If you want sustained tanking, try Mao. his ult can stay on as long as you want it to, his root can go about every 10 seconds, and his Arcane smash can be used every 3.

Haha Rammus is the best tank at the moment. Alistar is good as a support. What I am trying to say that he is more of a AP champion.
