Heimerdinger Matchups Overview

More Gameplay Tips for Heimerdinger Players

Tips and Tricks

Heimderding can zone out his enemies in lane by casting H-28G Evolution Turrets. Location is important when placing these turrets to maximize damage.

Upgrade can be used to empower any of your skills: An empowered H-28G Evolution Turret damages enemies in a line, an empowered Hextech Micro-Rockets increases its ability to take down a single target, an empowered CH-2 Electron Storm Grenade gives it a bouncing effect, stunning multiple enemies.

Upgrading CH-2 Electron Storm Grenade is a good tool during teamfights to disable multiple enemies.

Heimerdinger FAQs

Q: Can Blitzcrank (and other champions with hooks) pull through Heimerdinger's turrets?

A: No. In League of Legends, Heimerdinger turrets act just like any other unit or minion (except they are immobile). They will block all directed abilities that strike the first enemy hit. You can use them to keep Heimerdinger safe by placing them strategically.

Q: What lane does Heimerdinger play?

A: Heimer can play just about any lane in LoL. He's most often played in the mid or top lanes, but he can also be used in the bottom lane. He is not a good jungler though. Heimerdinger's turrets are very powerful, but his cooldowns are long. It takes too long for him to get another turret in the jungle, and he will have very slow clear times.

Additional Heimerdinger Build Insights

LoL Heimerdinger players will find him to be a complex champ to build out properly. You will see that his build is modified when he is fighting either well-rounded or specialized team compositions, showing you shouldn't choose the same Heimerdinger build every round of League of Legends

The most critical items to incorporate into your champion's build are: Liandry's Anguish, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Shard of True Ice. Those who added these pieces in their setups had a greater win rate than those who went for other builds for Heimerdinger. Moreover, if you are playing a varied enemy team composition, you should really consider grabbing him the Sorcery, and Inspiration runes. In recent matches, he won the greatest number of his matches when built with these runes.
