Welcome to Blitzcrank

Let me start by saying Blitzcrank is one of the hardest champions in the game to play. If you can't land a skill shot, this is not the champion for you. He relies entirely on pulling enemies into him and applying a constant disable. He fits in a strange niche between DPS, Tank, and Support, which many find to be too complex to work with.

However, if you can play Blitz well, you will win games for your team. One of my long-time LoL friends has played him since beta, and has mastered this toon. I present to you his build; one that has carried him to 2,092 ELO.

Runes & Masteries

These runes are pretty much required in this build. Substituting the Blues and Reds is not advised, but Quints and Yellows may be exchanged to things of your liking.

Blues are CDR, which combine with your masteries and items to give you 40% reduction. This means you have a 3 second cooldown on your Power Fist, which will devastate in any confrontation.

Reds are Armor Pen, which stacks with Brutalizer and masteries to make Power Fist hit all that much harder.

Yellows are Mana / 5 per level, mostly to help during mid-game. While I would not suggest changing these just because you don't/shouldn't get any mana regen items, replacing them with something else would probably be fine.

Quints are flat HP, because early-game and mid-game is where Blitz shines. This helps him dominate.


Masteries are a standard 9/0/21 setup, getting all the CDR masteries. This is critical to getting 40% CDR, and should not be changed. Not to mention the Utility masteries are simply better than the Defense ones, but I suppose that's subjective. :P

Items

Core Items



Brutalizer, Boots of Lucidity, and Sheen are the only items you really need to be effective. Farm these up quickly! You should have them by 20 minutes at the latest. This combination makes Power Fist so OP. Fist will be doing over 400 damage, every 3 seconds, and basically the full amount due to all your Armor pen.

Mid-Game Items
