Just picked up Alistar in Wild Rift and need some pointers? Don't worry, just read our guide on the Minotaur and you'll be the ideal support partner in no time at all.
Alistar is a champion with a lot of heavy CC at his disposal. He needs to dive right into the heart of the enemy team in order to be effective. That's why Aftershock is such a great fit for this champion: it provides him with a boost to his defensive stats and additional offensive prowess once in combat. Weakness also lets him focus on killing a single target.
Alistar is also makes a good roaming support, as he can travel from lane to lane and punish any opponents for overextending. Hunter - Titan lets him snowball off of his roaming, as does Pack Hunter, in blue.

Tips and Tricks
- Flash lets you play very dynamically, drastically increasing your offensive capacity. It can be a great way to engage into an enemy team. Flash into an opposing player, cast Pulverise to knock them up, then send them into your team with a Headbutt.
- Alistar can also be a very effective tank. His CC spells allow him to intercept the majority of enemy dashes and dives into your backline.
