Introduction to Blathian's Blitzcrank,
Riot says that the 1,2,3 combo is a charm... It may be SOMETIMES, but in reality you want to save you R for the right moment, let the turret do the damage or your R's passive ability to strike down your enemy before he/she is low enough to be one instantly killed by your ultimate ability. Now for your grab, you don't need it right away at level one, in fact you don't need it all that much except for it to be at level one while your champs level is at level two. In my opinion all you really need to do is grab the enemy and stun and stun some more, or pull to do as much damage or get the kill. I don't care much for the little damage the champ does while I'm a tank seeing as the majority of my damage comes from my R's passive, my Power Fist, and basic attacks with increased attack speed due to overdrive.
Cons: Only cons are that if you fall behind you're as good as dead, level up fast don't die often. And it does really matter how good your team is. Damage is on their behalf not yours.
