The unchecked nature of experimentation has taken its toll on the city. However, Zaun's lenient restrictions allow their researchers and inventors the leeway to push the bounds of science at an accelerated rate, for better or worse. It was under these conditions that a team of doctoral students from Zaun's College of Techmaturgy made a breakthrough in the field of intelligent steam automation. Their creation, the steam golem Blitzcrank, was developed to exercise judgment on-the-fly in order to assist with Zaun's hazardous waste reclamation process, since so often the conditions did not allow for human supervision. However, he soon began exhibiting unforeseen behaviors. Over time, the scientists were able to identify a demonstrated learning process, and Blitzcrank fast became a celebrity. As is sadly often the case though, credit for the golem's creation was scooped up by another - Professor Stanwick Pididly - though most now know the truth. In the wake of the ensuing legal maelstrom, it became evident that neither party truly had the steam golem's best interests at heart, and Blitzcrank humbly petitioned for personal autonomy. Backed by overwhelming support from the public, it took the liberal Council of Zaun only a few weeks to declare Blitzcrank a fully-independent, sentient entity. A unique being, the golem left Zaun, distressed by the controversy and feeling there was no place he could fit in. His travels led him to the one location in Valoran where unique beings have a place - the League of Legends. Fortunately, he was easily able to adapt his design to suit the rigors he would face on the Fields of Justice. Though Blitzcrank may batter anything that stands in his way, he really has a heart of gold... encased in a framework of iron... in a carapace of steel.

Pros/cons

Pros:
    Your QER combo makes a champ useless for nearly5 seconds.
    Area damage and silence with ult
    Im a golem
Cons
    Movement speed till late game
    Mana issues early if hard harrasing
Back to Top

Skill sequence

I choose to max first Power fist to reduce its CD and be able to farm easily early game, aslo Rocket Grab wastes a lot of mana and while being solo top you wont use it untill your jungler comes to do he´s/her work.
Back to Top

Runes

My runes are classic tank runes and solo top quintas which would let you last in lane longer.
Back to Top

Items

I start with the mana cristal which will let me free farm till i get my catalyst the protector. When y get to the gold for catalyst and boots i generally recall, like lvl 5 or 6. Feel free to spam your ult to farm, it has a really short CD and your catalyst will make you regain the mana youloose for it. Warmog its next thing on my list, due to having a nice early defense with runes i focus on getting health. The important part next is to decide if you are going for the frozen hearth or the banshee´s first, depends on what the match demands. This build will really get high when you reach your atma impaler and trinity force.
Instead of trinity if your going really tanky you may want some MR so Force of nature is a great option. Or sunfire cape if heavy AD.
Back to Top

Summoner spells

I pick Teleport and Flash but also having ghost instead of flash would work great combined with your W. Teleport could be replaced with exhaust that combined with ult makes a champ useless during the combo. Although, teleport is always usefull so you dont loose level.
Back to Top

Blitzcrank mid/late game

Blitzcrank is the only champ that can make his enemies come to him, his grab is almost 1 kill if having an smart team and allows you not to engange too soon if you are losing or underfarmed. Your team just has to wait till you grab them and 1 enemie less ;).
Back to Top

Summary

Its my first moba build so i hope you enjoy it, ill be changin it while i get some things i consider should get in, enjoy the steam golem.
