I created this guide after being asked by some of my friends how to build Blitzcrank. Blitzcrank has been the most enjoyable champion for me simply because he can turn the tides of a teamfight at any moment. People have been surrendering at 20 minutes because of frustration of dying however most people don't realize alot of those types of games could change especially if you have such champions like Blitzcrank and Singed that when left unchecked could really turn a game around.
Blitzcrank has a variety of builds however I feel he shines well as a support tank, one that can give assistance if there is a real tank as well as do damage and not die easily. Can he be built like AP? Yes, you can and people have and although it works I find it to be less supportive to your team and not his strongest game style.
Keep in mind that Blitzcrank is difficult to master, due to a skill shot that more may be capable of avoiding but when you learn the tricks and stick with it you'll be tearing up the battlefield with a champion that is rarely seen. I'm not claiming you can will every battle, after all I extremely suggest playing Blitzcrank with some friends that are aware of Blitzcrank and his playstyle.
Also with the release of his legendary skin more players may reluctantly wish to play him and possibly for the first time. If that is so then please take a look at my build and guide to a successfully ran Blitzcrank. Due to the high character count to create a descriptive guide I've went ahead and located the guide to an easier to read website.
