Mid-/Long-Range Tank?

#1Mystic_JeffPosted 6/10/2011 5:47:01 PM
Hi guys.
A buddy of mine is looking to try out a tank in LoL, but he can't settle on one.
What he's looking for is something mid or long ranged tank that doesn't suck up mana.
After suggesting Garen, and maybe Nasus, I get

"no. y can't there b a ranged tank that doesn't need mana and has a passive that gives some kinda offense from armor or mr or something"

So, who would you suggest?
The best ones that came to mind for me were Rammus, Galio, and Garen.
But none fit what he's looking for.

A ranged tank.

That's like an oxymoron.

That's what I said.
I'm asking here, in case I've missed something or someone else has any ideas.
I do try to be helpful lol.

Closest thing to it would be Cho'gath or Gragas.

Ranged autoattacks only really affect laning phase. Urgot's tanky and ranged. I have had many many ideas for ranged tanks which are all probably equally terrible.

He would enjoy The Old Republic coming out this fall, the troopers there can be tanks(which I'm looking forward to play)

If he wants to play someone with a lot of survivability at range, I'd recommend Swain. He can get mana hungry if you keep his ult open for too long, but his passive can keep his mana at near full most of the time.

Maybe Galio?
