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.
Introduction to Blitz
Blitzcrank is one of the most rewarding champions in LoL at this moment in time as he can be used as a Supercarry or as a beefy support character. If you master his pull knock out ult combo you are the master of disruption in team fights and with this guide also a VERY frightening 1v1 champion.
CAN carry a team
WILL carry a team
Hard to master
WILL get focused ( yes if you are ruining a teams day they will target you )
Requires awareness in teamfights
I am a big advocate of maximizing your knock up power. Blitzcrank can and will knock you up, no matter how much protection you have. HOWEVER a GREAT Blitzcrank will should be able to make clutch pulls, quick pulls, big pulls, and little pullswhen EVER needed so assure that your pull is NEVER DOWN before a teamfight.
I use the following skill sequence
Knockups are key.
Q-E-R combo does MASSIVE damage
Your Ultimate skills passive in a 1v1 fight no minions around pumps out 100-300 damage ( depending on the level ) EVERY 2.5 seconds do NOT use your ulty early for maximum damage.
I like to run these runes.
Marks: x9 armor pen
Seals: x9 Mana per level
Glyphs: x9 Magick resist per level
Quints: x9 Armor Pen
but Cooldown reduction glyphs works too.
I bring the armor pen for maximizing damage on autoattack and
Mana per level for a bigger mana barrier
and the MR to avoid being nuked by ap casters early in the game.
Masteries/ Summoner skills
I run a 0/6/24 build on blitz crank for the CDR on the summoner ability Clairvoyance. BUT if you do NOT run with CV these summoner skills also work:
then run a 0/9/21 build instead making sure to take increase mana and mana regen when ever possible.
The tankier you are the longer you will survive. Hence the 6 points in the defensive tree. Mainly for early game survivability.
The point into the utility tree are to maximize Mana Barrier, EXP gain, Regeneration, Speed. and Spamability of Clairvoyance.
As Blitzcrank you have two option in your path to farming:
A) SUPERCARRY and last hit EVERYTHING Power fist requires 25 mana to use and is on a shot cooldown. Great farming tool.
B) Farm VERY little just enough to get up to your sheen and boots. ***its gold is quite good as well.
Blitz is a **** disturber. I is very simple pull squishy key targets ( ex. Ashe ) Powerfrst her silence her then laugh as it is now a 4v5 and the other team has no carry.
Early game your tower is your friend. Baiting greedy players with low hp and a mana shield surprise is a nasty way of getting pulled to there doom by a hungry tower.
Blitz CAN solo top AND solo mid but I prefer duoing bottom. After mastering your pull you'll be getting you team first bloods all game every game.
This build offer you choices. Many choices. The build that I use the most is the one with all the pretty pictures up at the top. BUT other options ARE available.
FROZEN HEART FROZEN HEART FROZEN HEART an excellent choice on blitz replacing shurelia's reverie.
HoG into a Randuin's Omen can also be of use
With this build you will have 563 movement speed with a Triforce and a FoN with your Mobility boots and full W. You CAN NOT be out run. Master Yi looks slow in comparison. You will be able to chase knock up punch punch punch knock up ult for easy EASY kills I do it all the time. VERY satisfying feeling out running a master Yi. Try it some time.
BLitzcrank is also an AMAZING team saving champion. IF your squishy carry is being harassed by and chased a good pull knock up combo will allow you squishy ally to flee as you pummel the aggressor with power fists and lightening bolts.
Blitzcrank can EASILY turn 5v5's into 5v4's with one good grab.
NO ONE baits as well as a blitz with full mana and an active mana barrier. NO ONE
