Introduction

Say hello to BlitzTank. A full-blast tank that can take down any foe on the battlefield.


Guide Top

Runes

I encourage you to experiment with your runes. You don't need exactly what I do, it's only my personal preference. Try out some other rune builds to fir your needs/


Guide Top

Masteries

I like to go 0/22/8. But 0/21/9 and 9/21/0 do fine as well. As long as you saty 21 in the Defense tree you should be fine.

Items

This is a pretty sold item build, but you should improvise a little if needed. If the enemy team has no AP at all, you really don't need Force of Nature, so just skip over that and continue. Many people complain about the mana on this build, but if you don't make stupid mistakes, you'll be fine. Just practice your Rocket Grab aiming and you'll dominate. Also you could always go with a different last item, it just helps for those 5v5 fights at the end of games where your HP will fall fast.

Summoner Spells

I prefer Flash and Ignite. You can get away easy with Flash, which is a plus for BlitzTank because if you get stunned/slowed/exhausted, your W skill won't help much. Your Ignite is only good in the beggining, but it's totally worth it.

Teleport - You don't really need this, because Boots of Mobility + W will give you about 490 speed. So you can run to hotspots of the map in seconds.

Ghost- Boots of Mobility + W is already enough, no need for it.

Summary

Basically, with this guide you'll do extramural well almost every game. But only if you know how to play him. By this I mean don't waste you skills on pointless mistakes, especially when you have this low mana. Practice your Q + E + R, and you'll dominate anyone.

One of the best things I love about BlitzTank, or even Blitzcrank, is that in the beginning of matches, you'll do amazing. But only if your with a partner. You run into the bush, hit Q on your target, and your partner will do most of the damage, then just hit Ignite of them and it's a kill/double-kill. Never go solo laning, it won't work as well. You can solo against some squishy champions but only if they are alone.

You'll mainly be getting assists here, but that's still okay. Your an essential to the team.
Everyone hates playing as tank, but this is the first time that I actually have fun playing with one!


Some good champions to lane with:

- Twitch
- Gangplank
- Ashe
- Miss Fortune
- Evelynn
- Caitlyn
- Jarvan IV
- Ezreal
- Kassadin
- Master Yi
- Katarina
- Morgana
- Shaco
- Twisted Fate
- Xin Zhao
