Volibear is not a tank. He's an anti-carry.
That's why he does so well in Twisted Treeline. Tanks don't do as well as Tanky DPS (anti-carries).
You build him as his style of an anti-carry: Health-stacking. Similar to Olaf.
You don't build him as a proper tank. That wouldn't be as effective.
Frozen Mallet, Spirit Visage, Atma's Impaler, and Warmog's Armor are ideal items.
