Runes

You need Armor for bot lane 2v2 situations and tanking towers/dragon/baron.
Magic Resist because pretty much all AD Carries have magic damage(except )and 2v2 situations as mentioned earlier.
3 Gold per 10 seconds are great because you wont get creeps at all.

Summoner Spells



Explanation:

To position your self,to escape,to chase,to get into the enemy carry so you him.In my opinion the best Summoner Spell in game.
It turns enemy carry useless and prevents him from running away.Great spell,dont underistimate the 30% damage reduction
Oh boy,they changed this spell a lot.Now it gives less health (that's why i get the mastery at Deffence tree) BUT it grants the same ammount of healing to nearby allies.Great because Blitzcrank doesnt have heal abilities.To be honest i prefer Exhaust over this.
They changed this spell as well but still,i find my self getting Exhaust/Heal more than that.I prefer getting to seccure visioned areas more than that.

Skills

Passive: Mana Barrier

Explanation:

Great passive.Even without a lot of mana it helps a lot.How many times did i escape a [imgsmall=skill/karthus/r.png] with less than 100 health can't count.Always wait to have it back off cooldown before initiating and starting the teamfight.


Q: Rocket Grab

Explanation:


Bread and Butter spell.This is the reason if one of the hardest(along with )in my opinion supports to master.You must know when to do this,but before you activate it think:what will happen if you pull the XYZ champion?Will i help my team kill it or will he trap my whole team ?Will he assasin and kill my carry with ease?



W: Overdrive

Explanation:

A lot of combos with this spell.This solves your movement speed problems,positions you better for and helps getting dragon/baron/towers faster.An OK spell.



E: Power Fist

Explanation:

At level 2,if you a carry/support followed by this,the enemy carry or support will most likely die or waste his summoner spells or get away with less than 100 health which leads into Gold/Experience starvation for the enemy bot lane.


Keep in mind it resets the auto attack timer.



R: Static Field

Explanation:


Great spell.Very low cooldown,0.5 second Silence(enough to cancel or other channeling abilities.),great passive,nice AoE active damage.Usefull skill if combo'ed with

Skill Order

Max Order



Max 1st as every ultimate for damage
(LEVELS 6,11,16)
Max 2nd for cooldown reduction.
(LEVELS 2,3,5,9,12)
Max 3rd for movement speed
(LEVELS 4,8,10,13,14)
Max last for Cooldown reduction and damage
(LEVELS 1,7,15,17,18)

Combos

1: ok good combo if you can land Rocker Grab this is most likely a kill
2: similiar to 1,when you just can't pull someone.They maybe even waste if they are too afraid.
3: if they or use any other escape ability when you start your chasing them
4: kill 100%
5: good trade they will most likely go back
you waste everything here and that is a little risky.If it fails they will push the lane as long as they know everything you have is on cooldown.

Item Builds(UPDATED FOR SEASON 3)

Now about item choices:
Start with because Blitzcrank is rather slow as a champion and you need movement speed a lot.
Then i buy
By the 20 minutes mark i want to have and going for
Full Build (super late game when you sell Ruby Sightstone)

Tenacity helps a lot since it lowers the duration of Crowd Controls on you.With these boots you can turn a [imgsmall=skill/malzahar/q.png] 3 second silence into a 1,8 second silence(i think)

Great item.Health,Cooldown Reduction,Active Shield.As mentioned earlier,Blitzcrank has no shields/heals.Generally after the remake,even if isnt build of any more it is better and viable in my opinion.

Cleances an ally AND Heals him for 15% of his missing health.Your team might consider this as an substitution for even though it is only for 1 ally.Learn when to use it wisely as it is on a 2 minutes cooldown.Other than that it provides Mana and Mana Regen,something that is underestimated during the late game when your mana problems are gone.

Great Aura.Provides pretty much every deffencive stat; Health,Armor,Magic Resist on your self and an Aura that grants Armor,Magic Resist and Health Regen (NOTE:2 Runic Bulwarks Auras wont stack).

1st of all,it is the 1st item to keep the Gold per 10 seconds passive.It has Mana Regen Aura and at last but not least,active surrounds an ally unit with blizzard that slows nearby allies.Think of it as an [imgsmall=skill/champ/lulu/r.png] without the Health bonus and the Knock-Up.You wanna use it on Assasins like or initiators like

Old school support item.Cooldown Reduction,Health,Mana/Health Regen and movement speed aura active.Cheap and Great item.

is bad after patch but you still want to have it out whenever possible to keep places cleared of enemy wards so your Mid Laner or Jungler can gank.

Where To Ward

Try to have every bush warded so you have the benefit to fight in there without worring about enemies.Knowing enemy's team placement is key to success as it helps your team survive off 1v5/2v5/3v5 scenarios that will give advantage to enemy team.

Boots Upgrades

To be honest i never upgrade my boots as i prefer finishing off important items 1st.I had to upgrade them only in a match and i picked the movement speed aura boots.
Anyway to help you pick i present you the upgrades and you can pick whatever you want.

Final Comments

Well that's it i think i got you into Support Blitzcrank role.
Leave me your feedback please it took me a lot of time to create this.
