I don't know the code, but I think that barrier activates AFTER damage is applied, unlike hexdrinker, which activated between calculation and application.
Is the case that Blitzcrank never gets above that 30% threshold and never resets the proc condition as a result?

That's my gut reaction as I haven't been able to repro a case where the shield didn't trigger when I expected it to.

This has happened to me before. I can't give many details, but I've noticed my barrier not activating twice in the same "life." I dismissed it as timing--maybe I didn't see my buff bar correctly and it was just about to c/d before I died, but I was fairly certain that wasn't the case, but had no reason to believe it to be the case (until now when I read this thread).
