Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

As a starting item always pick Boots of SpeedBoots of Speed , you need to rush the [locket enchant] for the first dragon fight or to help in a situational fight at bot lane, the type of boots is up to you i usually go for [ninja tabi] because you don't really need the tenacity from Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads on alistar because your [alistar:ult] is a purify and botlane early will have more AD damage than AP damage. After the first dragon fight you rush for Zeke's ConvergenceZeke's Convergence because when a fight happens you will be in the middle of the enemy team hence the passive becomes super useful. The other items are very situational, a good rule of thumb is to learn wich items counter wich champions. This build is built around the current meta especially the Adaptive HelmAdaptive Helm is there to counter kennen's ult Slicing MaelstromSlicing Maelstrom but it is also a very good option if your team has no ap ruling out an Abyssal MaskAbyssal Mask . Spirit VisageSpirit Visage is also very situational, is a good option if the majority of the enemy team has ap based damage but feel free to swap it for a Warmog's ArmorWarmog's Armor to get way more hp than the previous option.

Other than this get creative always try to find the best item combos against any champ because this is the basics of support especially on a tank like AlistarAlistar .

In my opinion this is the only rune setup that alistar can really benefit off i guess you could go for Hunter GeniusHunter Genius instead of Pack HunterPack Hunter to get cc out more often but then you lose precious gold to snowball core items.

Summoner Spells

When to take which summoners

Flash
Always go for this you need it for combos quick escape or gap closing to reach opponents or allies
Exhaust
Take this if your adc goes for heal helps in a lot of ways, you can slow or lower the damage dealt from one enemy
Heal
Take this if your adc goes for barrier.
Ignite
Some people like to pick this but the previous options are way better, the only right scenario i see to pick this is if all 5 enemies have heavy healing skills.

Alistar

Combos

HeadbuttHeadbutt + PulverizePulverize this is your go to combo, if you struggle to do the second part of it just keep the skill pressed instead of timing it yourself it will fire at the right time always.

Flash + PulverizePulverize then get behind your priority target and HeadbuttHeadbutt to toss them inside of your team or under your tower, very effective in laning phase if they are too aggressive when there are no enemy minions under your tower.

You can also go for flash + PulverizePulverize if you need a quick engage on the enemy and either your HeadbuttHeadbutt is on cooldown or you want to save it to push something like a kennen away from your team once you engage.
