I've been thinking lately, Blitzcrank is one of the most versatile champions in the game. He doesn't even need items to be successful, in theory. What I've seen is that as long as you can pull someone into your team, knock them up and silence them they're dead meat, no matter which build you prefer.

So I've been thinking, most guides say that you should level Blitzcrank's E first. I think that's pretty lame, especially when you think about that when you get level 9 E, your opponent already has lots of speed, and will outrun you if they manage to survive your initial combo.

So basically, I've been trying out W-maxing Blitzcrank lately, and it's absolutely awesome. I mean, you get speed to avoid ganks + chase + get into position. All you really need Q and E for is performing your one combo, which should be enough to kill them.

I mean, when you think about that both Q and E is utility, and most people level their utility abilities last, it's amusing that in Blitzcrank's case people generally ignore the steroid and focus on getting low cooldown on the knockup. I mean, what's the point of several knockups if you can't keep up with them?

Rocket Grab's cooldown lowers with every level. I max it first for maximum pain.

This way you are an overall higher threat.

Same counts for Power Fist. You don't need to chase, you just need to do dat combo.

I agree, but generally, you only need to do one combo, and W gets you into position to pull it off :) Wouldn't W cause a bigger pain, for example, you stand in the end of the bush, and they stand on the other side of minions, near river wall. If you had W, you could just charge right through minions, knock them into the air, ulti them, and when they flash or dash or whatever away, you pull them back with Q.

In most cases you wouldn't need more than that, right?

Yeah, do that if you can vs long ranges like Kog'Maw which is protected by support or against Graves/ Vayne which have an easy dash out.
He is gonna kill you!!!
