I wouldn't advise doing that unless they build into an item that you want. Avarice blade provides what .5 gold per second? so you're giving yourself 12% crit which is worthless on many champions (and not all that great on many champs who do use crit) in return for 750 gold. Just to pay itself off is 25m.

Heart of Gold on the other hand is a great starting item for certain characters like Rammus. Unless you're going jungle, which you should if nobody else on your team is.

Attachment is based on Avarice Blade

All gold per second items give gold at a rate of 5 gold per 10 seconds (0.5 gold per second). The cheapest item is the Avarice Blade which costs 750g. Profit is very minimal and often pointless as it is rare for games (especially non-league games) to last beyond 30 or 35 minutes.

This assumes, however, that gold per second items do not have any other stats on them and can't be sold back. Both of these assumptions are false. The general consensus is :

  • Philosopher's Stone : Complete trash
  • Kage's Pick : Bad, there are far better items for casters to get, only buy this for Deathfire Grasp
  • Avarice Blade : Good for crit-dependant champions, can be gotten early if you plan on getting Infinity Edge later.
  • Heart of Gold : Cost-efficient even without the gold per second passive. Good early purchase for tanks to get Randuin's Omen after buying a few other costly tank items.

A whole host of champions can shut Alistar out of last hitting*, and one of his problems is the time it can take to clear a minion wave as him without mana expensive Pulverize spamming.

*(Pretty much every ranged dps champion, for starters.)

An early Sunfire Cape is honestly the best way to improve Alistar's farm, if its that important to you.

Generally, you should be at least 10X, more concerned that the enemy champions die than about who gets the last hit.

Don't save your Headbutt for a last hit when there is need for it in a team fight.

This is okay, because Alistar, being a natural tank, doesn't need items as much as others--another thing well known on the forums.

Concerning last-hitting on champion kills, you are suggesting that it would be okay to hold back one's attacks in order to get in the last hit. That is dangerous, and contrary to principles of teamwork.
Whilst these things are basic knowledge, we are on the new player forum and these two tips are some of the most important things to know.

The faster new players learn about last-hitting and carries, the faster they become good players.

No one complained about his information regarding last hitting minions.

The issue was the fact that he was advocating last hitting champions as a tank, as well as denying his carry lane mate minion kills. This does two things: break up the team work needed to kill someone and supports selfish playing behavior when this is a team game. The team with the best organization and cooperation will win.

It is important for carries to get gold to farm it up, they are the most item dependent champions in the game. Support can easily still support without buying any items. Tanks do need gear, but much less than Carries do. Tanks and Support classes get gold for assists, and they should have a ton of assists by nature of their champion playstyle. If you're a tank or support with no assists and a lot of kills--you're doing it wrong.

I'm pretty sure there are separate "bounties" for kills and assists. It's just that the assist bounty is less than the kill bounty and the assist bounty is split among all champions that assisted. So you do get gold on assists, just less than you get for the kill. However, since you're a tank, assists should be fairly easy to obtain.

I donīt know much about tanks, but what I do know is that tanks donīt need money so bad as carries.
Carries have to buy items in order to kill a summoner of the enemy team.

Then to come back on the subject last hitting on champions.
I donīt think people really want to be ksed.
So if you are coming in to a big 1v1 and the enemy summoner has low hp. its only fair that the other allied champion kills him. otherwise you will get a bad team spirit and then the game is lost.
Of course you can assist him in his 1v1 but only if he doesnīt have low hp and the 1v1 has just started

OMFG this!

I'm really surprised no one brought it up right away guys. He is obviously low level, but most of the bladerdash comes from the fact that he promotes last hitting champions with a tank behind the excuse that assits don't give gold. Which is compltely wrong.

Also: what people said is absolutely correct: tanks are build to be effective with less items/gold. As opposed to carries.

I hope someone mentioned that assists do, in fact, give you gold
