Alistar Guide

Key Insights
Alistar
P
's heal is doubled for nearby allied champions.
Alistar
Q
can be used during
Alistar
W
to cancel its knockback and instead knock up the enemies in the AoE.
Alistar
E
will only stack if an enemy champion is being damaged by it.
On cast,
Alistar
R
cleanses Alistar of ALL crowd control.
Strengths
Has a very strong level 2/3 with
Alistar
W
+
Alistar
Q
.
Alistar
W
can be used into a thick wall to hold a target in place rather than knock them back, allowing Alistar to extend his CC chain.
Excels at roaming with his CC tools as well as turret diving and frontlining with
Alistar
R
.
Synergizes well with
Locket of the Iron Solari
,
Zeke's Convergence
,
Knight's Vow
,
Abyssal Mask
, and
Vigilant Wardstone
. Can opt for
Evenshroud
or
Turbo Chemtank
when needed.
Weaknesses
Very weak at level 1 since he only has access to either
Alistar
Q
or
Alistar
W
when his combo needs both, and can be heavily punished during this time.
Alistar
Q
and
Alistar
W
both have a 14 second cooldown at rank 1. Once used, he can be punished.
Alistar
W
+
Alistar
Q
combo can be dodged with mobility spells.
