FAQs About Heimerdinger

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

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.

What lane does Heimerdinger play?

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.
