Not Updated For Current Season
Hello and welcome to this guide for Blitzcrank.
This build is designed to take advantage of 2 things.
1) Blitz's Q and R have a 1.0 AP ratio, allowing him to deal extreme damage if he builds up his AP.
2) Blitz's passive is extremely useful now that it no longer consumes any mana to create. With a large amount of mana, this can give blitz great staying power while low on health.
Fairly standard 9-21-0 focusing on getting AP, cooldown reductions, Magic Pen, and then some additional tanking power (which this build for Blitz otherwise lacks.)
AP, Cooldown Reductions, Magic Pen, and some Mana Regen help Blitz be a more efficient caster, though I'm very open to suggestions on these.
Flash is useful for quickly getting into good position for a grab or making an escape if necessary. Exhaust goes a long way to insuring that anyone you grabbed won't be getting away.
Focus primarily on leveling up Blitz's Q and E to help deal out damage (focusing primarily on Q due to it's AP ratio.) Grab a rank of W at some point to help with escapes and chases if needed.
-Sapphire Crystal at the start for some early mana and a pair of pots.
-Tear of the Goddess should be your #1 priority as it'll allow you to start using your abilities a lot more often and will help bolster your passive shield.
-Magic pen boots are an obvious choice for this build, though boots of swiftness are also rather attractive for chasing and getting into position for a grab (especially since this build doesn't level up W very much till late game.
-After this try to get your first Archangel Staff which will set the tone for the rest of the build.
-Sheen is built to help add some damage to your E.
-Continue stacking Archangels for awhile, the extra mana will greatly increase the effectiveness of your passive, and the passive ability of your first Archangel will convert your mountains of Mana into a respectable level of AP.
-Upgrade your Sheen to a Lichbane around the time that you finish leveling up your E. This will allow you to throw a huge boost of damage behind it by allowing you to contribute your high AP level (and the extra mana and movement speed are great bonuses too.)
-Lastly finish up with as many Archangels as you can buy before the game ends.
