Alistar Guide support Wild Rift | Build and Runes S1

Alistar Wild Rift Guide

Feel free to play toreador with Alistar in LoL: Wild Rift. But be aware that you're entering a dangerous area and the minotaur might make a few bumps. He's not afraid to run into the crowd and has plenty of crowd control. When properly controlled, it creates havoc in opposing lines and allows you to play very aggressively in lane. Tempted by the adventure, but don't know where to start? Here's our Alistar support Wild Rift guide to learn the basics before you start Ranked.
This guide will go over Alistar's iconic combo, break down his role in lane and teamfight and determine the most effectiveitemization on the champion.

Recommended build for Alistar support: items, runes and skill order

Recommended build for Alistar Support Wild Rift
Adapt the build according to the nature of the enemy damage.

Alistar is one of the tankiest characters in the game and has an excellent defensive ultimate skill. In his itemisation, we try to make him even more resistant, with armour, magic resistance and health points. If you can't completely ignore utility items to help your allies, Alistar's strong point is to put his body in opposition to absorb a maximum of damage.

What build for Alistar support Wild Rift?

  • Must-have items: in general, the priority is to buy the Protector's Vow (shield) and Zeke's Convergence (damage). In addition to strengthening Alistar, they allow you to link up with an ally and give them precious bonuses. Finally, Dead Man's Plate may seem like a more selfish choice, but its speed bonus and slowdown are really valuable to the rampaging Minotaur.
  • The boots : with this support, you always look for more resistance. You can choose between the Ninja Tabis (armour) or the Mercury Sandals (magic resistance). Several alternatives are then possible in terms of enchantment. Depending on your play style, you can choose between Gargoyle (tankyness) or Glory ( engagement ability).
  • Situational items: Warmog's armour is always useful with its big bonus in HP. Then, you have to adapt to your opponent's composition and choose between Randuin's Omen (anti-AD) or the Adaptive Helmet (anti-AP).

What runes for Alistar support Wild Rift?

  • Main Rune: It is unimaginable to do without the Aftermath Rune. In addition to being super easy to activate with Alistar support, it gives a good resistance bonus when the minotaur dives into the heart of the battle.
  • Secondary Runes: It's hard to miss the Weakness rune which benefits greatly from Alistar's numerous crowd controls. Then, we really appreciate the Spirit Guardian rune which limits the effects of slowdowns and the Maquis rune which allows the minotaur to run faster all over the map.

Which skills should be improved first?

There's no real suspense, we're improving Alistar's Atomisation - Headbutt combo as a priority. Since Atomisation is often more useful, this is the skill that is favoured. Trampling is not that easy to place; you don't usually invest in this skill at the beginning of the game by keeping it at a lower rank.

How to make good use of Alistar's support skills?

Triumphant shout
Triumphant shout
(passive)
When Alistar takes damage, he periodically heals himself and his allies. The recovery time is reduced when the minotaur stuns an enemy.
atomization
Atomisation
Enemies in the vicinity of Alistar are thrown into the air and suffer magical damage.
Headbutt
Headbutt
Alistar runs at an enemy to wound them and throw them in the opposite direction. The mount can also aim at a turret to inflict damage.
Trampling
Trampling
Alistar wounds nearby enemies and gains charges every second he hits an enemy champion. After 5 charges, his next basic attack will deal bonus damage and stun.
Iron will
Iron will (final)
Purges all control effects and massively reduces damage taken for 7 seconds.

When you play Alistar in support on Wild Rift, you're usually looking for action right from the lane phase. The Headshot - Atomisation combo is worth testing for a few minutes with the training tool. Once you have mastered it, don't hesitate to loop on fragile enemies to give rhythm and force short but advantageous trades . Ideally, you should also use Trample to stick your target and add a stunning auto-attack to the rotation. However, Alistar is not a one-dimensional champion. He excels at aggression, but can also disengage by sending an enemy too threatening for your carry home.

Headbutt can also deal damage to a turret.

From the lane phase, the minotaur can also try to roam in midlane. Without being a jungler, its combo can surprise and put in great difficulty an imprudent opponent. In teamfights, you must also use Iron Will intelligently. Its damage reduction allows you to rush into the crowd without fear of dying quickly. In addition, as ultimate purges crowd control, one usually tries to cast the skill after absorbing a cage or stun.

With which champion should a good synergy be set up?

Good synergy with Alistar: Jhin
Jhin and Alistar complement each other very well.

Alistar is looking for a partner who can keep up with his frantic pace as a rampaging minotaur. He can serve up kills on a silver platter to a champion like Draven, who can then feast on them and line his pockets. The Triumphant Scream passive that heals Alistar and his ally when the support takes damage also regenerates after short trades , further encouraging the fight. Another synergy to look for in the draft phase is to form the duo Alistar-Jhin, two top tier champions. While the cowboy engages, the sniper can follow from a distance, shoot from a safe distance and even participate in the crowd control rotation.

Counter d'Alistar support Wild Rift: who should we watch out for?

Counter Alistar Wild Rift : Janna
Janna announces headwinds.

The utility champions Janna and Lulu can easily become a nuisance. They are fragile and Alistar dreams of nuking them... The problem is that they have a long range and have effective ways of keeping their distance from the minotaur. The latter risks being useless and getting poached in the lane phase. In this type of match-up, you will have to wait for your time and an enemy positioning error to hope to find an opening.

Advanced tips and tricks for playing Alistar support Wild Rift

The classic combo is to use Headbutt - Atomisation to close on an enemy and throw them into the air. Periodically, Alistar support Wild Rift also features a Lightning Jump which opens up a new possibility! This involves flashing into an enemy, throwing them into the air with Atomisation and then going behind their back and bringing them back into your team with Headbutt. This move is not always easy to place but should guarantee you a free kill.

Look closely at the marker which indicates where the target of your Headbutt will be.

Alistar also has a somewhat complicated relationship with walls. He can get through some with Headbutt provided he has vision and an enemy target is present on the other side. More problematically, if he misses his combo, he can throw an enemy in an undesired direction and give them an unintended escape route. This is even more problematic when you send an opponent behind a wall...

We have already reached the end of this Alistar support Wild Rift guide. You have all the cards in your hand to shine with the minotaur and nuke your enemies in Ranked. Good luck and show everyone that for a steak on legs you're pretty damn tough. 🙃
