Is Alistar better when played alongside Janna?

There is no universally accepted best ally for Alistar that will always be his top synergy. However, Janna is a very typical companion for Alistar. By playing on the same team as Alistar, she lowers their win rate by -0.1% to 48.4%. This demonstrates that there is a weak bond between Alistar and Janna that results in them performing worse together than alone.

Janna has a lower difficulty than Alistar. That means Alistar players don't need to be cautious when finding Janna allies to go into battle on the same side as, as they will require a lower level of skill to fight well with you.

Fighting cooperatively, you will likely witness an overall large increase in your team’s capacity to provide utility and CC for your side. When paired, these champs will help their other teammates secure a victory.

Although, by bringing Alistar and Janna together, you will not be granting your team a lot of sustained damage output. Make sure to include other champs on your team that fills this relative gap in this pairing's abilities.

Regardless of your Janna ally's ability, you need to focus on maximizing your income, staying alive by avoiding foolish fights, and taking down objectives. If you do this, you will do well anyway.
