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.

Those who included these pieces in their gear had a higher winrate than those who utilized other Heimerdinger builds.
