Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Alright guys, this is a guide on how to play Blitzcrank. You may need to substitute some of the items for others, depending on who your fighting, and who's on your team.

#1 summoner spells
Spells to use
Exhaust= An excellent spell for Blitzcrank especially because he doesn't have a shield ability.
Ghost= A fairly decent spell for blitzcrank, it helps his overdrive abilities *slow state*. Plus it's excellent for getting in range to pull a squishy enemy in.
Teleport= Another fairly decent spell for blitzcrank, and almost all tanks because they have such a hard time getting around the map.
Cleanse= Probably the best spell for Blitzcrank
Ignite= I don't exactly think that this spell is the best choice for Blitzcrank, but if you use it right it could be.
Spells not to use
Rally= No comment..... just don't use it....
Clarity= He'll already have enough mana from this build, he wont need a mana regenerating spell.
Smite= He already has the passive for his ult.
Heal= He's a tank.
Revive= This is useful for other tanks but not this one.
#2 Champion Abilities
Mana Barrier-Passive: Once a minute, when Blitzcrank's life is brought below 20% health, he activates a Mana Barrier. This creates a shield with 50% of his mana, lasts 10 seconds and refunds any unspent mana once it wears off. This ablity is self explanatory.
Rocket Grab-Active: Blitzcrank fires his right hand at a targeted area. If his hand encounters an enemy unit, it will stun them, deal magic damage and pull them to him. This is a great attack when an enemy is tower hugging or your tower hugging. It's also amazing with DPS teammates are nearby, I think you can guess the rest.
Overdrive-Active: Blitzcrank super charges himself to get dramatically increased movement and attack speed for 8 seconds. However, when this effect ends his movement speed is decreased by 25% for 3 seconds. This ability is a good for chasing and fleeing. BUT chasing with this ability does require combos to work right. (Egs: Overdrive, then Rocket Grab, finally Power Fist to finish him off.)
Power Fist-Active: Blitzcrank charges up his fist to make his next attack deal double damage and pop his target up in the air. Great ability for hand to hand combat, especialy when fighting a squishy champ.
Static Field-Passive/Active: (passive) Blitzcrank causes lightning bolts to deal a small amount of magic damage to nearby enemies every 2.5 seconds.
(Active) Blitzcrank can activate this ability to deal a huge amount of magic damage to nearby enemies, this removes the passive lightning bolts until Static Field becomes available again. The passive for this ability is a great melee 1vs1 ability, and also a great farming ability. The active abilty is great for teamfights.
#3 Shop Items
Dorans Shield- A great starting item for Blitzcrank, it gives him everything he needs at the beginning of the lanning phase.
Mercury Treads- Another great Item for Blitzcrank, BUT if your not fighting many mages or anyone with magic damage you should probably get Ninja Tabi.
Phage- This item leads to Frozen Mallet so definitely get it ASAP.
Frozen Heart- A great item, but you can substitute it for Innervation Locket.
Frozen Mallet- Another must get item.
Guardian Angel- an incredible great item for Blitzcrank but it isn't a must have.
Deathfire Grasp- This item really helps Blitzcrank's abilities deal their maximum damage.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter- If your around in the game long enough to get this last item then you should always go for it. It gives you health, ability power, and movement speed reduction to whoever you use an ability on.
A really good combination for Blitzcrank is to have someone with high cc abilities with you duing the lanning phase and during team fights, such as Ryze, Morgana, or Lux.
A really bad teammate to go with is another tank with no cc such as Galio, Shen, and Rammus.
Enemies to watch out for are enemies with true damage such as Irelia and Cho'gath.
Enemeis you can easily handle are Anie,Fiddlesticks, and Heimerdinger.
