...what's your guys opinion? I haven't really tanked much and I need to learn the role eventually, but I was wondering which tank would be the best for a starting tank/best all around tank.

Depends on the type of tank. There are anti-melee tanks, anti-mage tanks and support tanks and all will fill a different role in team composition. I prefer Rammus for anti-melee, Maokai for anti-mage, and all the support tanks are pretty equal to me in terms of usefulness.

Try Rammus or Amumu. You will have a hard time laning as either one of them ( which is why they are usually jungling ) but if you have a smart lane partner you could come out on top.

I feel Rammus would be good for beginners because of his natural tankiness ( against AD ) and his basic strategy is easy to pick up. Taunt anyone on their team besides the tank that can be quickly dispatched, and ult when things get heavy.

Amumu is simple too. All you gotta know is how to setup that perfect opportunity, a great bandage toss + ult and lock down the enemy so your teammates can wipe the carries out quickly.

Rammus would be my suggestion

Amumu is great, but people tend to have particular expectations and he tends to get banned frequently in lower elos

Mao is probably the best tank in a lane as his saplings can zone out early and farm as they develop

If you want to jungle tank, I'd recommend amumu or rammus.

If want to solo top tank, some good choices are singed, jarvan, nasus.

If you want to bot lane tank with a partner, you might consider leona, shen, or maokai.

Probably the best advice I can give is, just try stuff out and see what fits your style!

I'm surprised no one's said this yet, but Singed. A few games in and you'll learn some general tactics with Singed, and if you build him right he's virtually not killable. This isn't solely because of his tanky-ness, but his abilities provide so much escaping/kiting and chasing power. And yes, he is even good at getting kills, and excellent at initiating with Fling, probably one of the best. He isn't hard to play, but easy to **** up with. I love him, he's the only tank I really play but he's my suggestion if you want a fun and viable one.
