Can anyone help me make Alistair viable
not really haha. its funny as hell bumping over extending champs into allied turrets and such.

I've played hundreds of games with Ali-star!! I either build him AD when fighting heavy physical team. Thornmail+ armor pen and damage items pwns em so badly. And sometimes AP, Puv. + headbutt just knocks off more than half their hp if you play good. Ali-star is one of my fav. champs.

Locket is gone.

I found 2 Rod of ages, granted you can pull it off early enough, is all he needs.

I wouldnt' say he's useless but the top tier tanks Rammus,Shen, and Amumu are just too useful. All three can jungle, Rammus and Shen can force teams to focus them with their taunts, all three are strong chasers, Rammus has an on-demand ghost, Shen has a free global teleport that saves teammates and sets up counter-gank scenarios, Amumu has a great initiation combo, all three are better farmers, and all three have better gank potential then Alistar.

He isn't picked over them because he just doesn't have the toolset to compete with them.

Im sure he can but how long would it take him to do it, all three of those tanks can clear out the jungle with 5-6 mins depending on their rune + mastery setups, Alistar has abysmal attack speed and a low mana pool with Pulverize as the only skill that works on the creeps, spamming this and roar will oom him out fast.

alistar is 100% support. He does not kill on his own, he sucks at initiating, but if you let me wade into the middle of a teamfight i guarantee my team wins and your team dies. Pulverize and headbutt are basically your way of saying "your turn to die now". E lets you push forever and R makes you invincibull (yeah, i did it)

Alistar is my second favorite tank next to rammus. They're both great, but rammus just does everything better...

Try to kill my tank Alistar as he ignores you, downs your turret, stuns you, and casually walks away. Also, anyone saying he's a terrible initiator hasn't played more than a few games with him. I initiate and cause so much chaos with him that I have a team running from me by late game.

l2Alistar.

But still, if buffs are on the floor, then by all means. That would be bovine.
