Who is the best tank in LoL and Why?

Who do u think is the best tank and why?

ie. If you think Morde is best tank say why? Ie. Aside from his shield..and in big fights.. it will go down fast.. what else would make him a good tank?

Chogath.. With another teammates CC and ur Rupture.. it can disable people for a long time.. and a feast to finish them off fast.. also he can have a ton of health.

etc.

who and why?

Cho'Gath doesn't put up enough of a threat to make him a priority target
Anyway, my vote's for Shen. Even after all the nerfs, AoE taunt is just too good. Alistar would probably be second since he can take turrets down like nobody's business.

is shen better than rammus?

#4anilEhilatedPosted 5/25/2010 12:48:39 PM
Yeah. because Rammus has no earlygame and ridiculously low stats. That's one hero who could definitely use a buff or two.

Rammus is the only tank getting a buff next patch, I think. Mostly his skills, though, didn't notice any stat changes.

shen
aoe taunt that's also a dash/terrain jump, damage reduction shield that is fairly spammy, range shot that is also a heal, teleport ult that shields you and ally. what more do you need?

Since we are talking about tanks, I have a question. Is there any way for a tank to decrease the damage taken by Madred's Bloodrazor? Should he stack armor, magic resistance, or what?

Let's not forget extremely synergetic passive ability - the more HP you have, the harder you hit (and the more often you're hit, which is your whole job anyway, the faster you can do it again).

What about Taric? He has a lot of heal going on, armor boost, stun...

Or AP Yi? Cleanse and Meditate can tank insane amounts of DPS.

Shen is the absolute best tank in the game. There is no question about it. The only tank that even comes close is Alistar. The biggest thing that separates these two is that Shen can make people attack him while Alistar can only keep sending one back for his team to kill. Shen can also deal damage while Alistar can't. Although Alistar is stronger in terms of pure tanking, it's practically useless in games where people know not to target the tank first.
