Guide to Countering Maokai as Blitzcrank

Tips for Playing as Blitzcrank against Maokai

The 1-2-3 combo of Rocket Grab, Power Fist, and Static Field can devastate an individual opponent.

Using Blitzcrank's grab to pull an enemy into your tower range followed by a Power Fist will allow the tower to get several hits on them.

Advice to Win Against Maokai

The cooldown on Maokai's self healing is heavily gated on how many time you hit him with spells. Careful about wasting abilities on him.

Maokai will avoid taking damage while he's using Twisted Advance, so don't waste your spells.

Saplings will chase the first enemy that gets too close, but detonate after a few seconds or if they collide with other enemies. Be especially careful around brush sapling, as they are much more dangerous.
