Blitzcrank FAQs

Q: Can I build Blitzcrank with both AP and tanky items?

A: Yes. There are a number of good AP/tank items in League of Legends. However, in the current meta, Blitz is usually best when given CDR, tank, or other support items instead of additional AP. That is because his abilities have such long cooldowns that AP isn't very cost effective on him.

Q: Why does Blitzcrank always get banned in League of Legends?

A: Blitzcrank is often banned in LoL. This is especially true at lower ranks, such as Iron, Bronze, and Silver divisions. For inexperienced players that are caught out of position, Blitz can be devastating. Playing against Blitz (and other hook supports) requires players to constantly focus on their positioning. Some newbies just don't want to bother, so they ban Blitzcrank to avoid the hassle.

Q: How do you play Blitzcrank in the late game?

A: Your objective should be the same as most other supports: protect your carry. You should use your abilities to peel enemies off of your ADC or other carries during teamfights. You also will have the added task of engaging. If you can get a pick in the late game, you can turn the tide of battle in your teams favor. Just don't pull their tank.

Q: What is Blitz's greatest strength in LoL?

A: His hook is incredibly powerful and useful. It is the fastest hook in the game and allows you to pull champions to you even over obstacles. To maximize his strength, you should invest in cooldown reduction items in your Blitzcrank build.

Q: What is Blitzcrank's greatest weakness?

A: Blitzcrank has very long cooldowns, especially on his Q. If you miss your hook, you and your team will usually need to stand by until the timer refreshes. In lane, he faces the same issues. Don't miss you Q, and increase your CDR for you Blitz build.
