Guide to Countering Aatrox as Heimerdinger

Tips for Playing as Heimerdinger against Aatrox

Spreading out Hextech Micro-Rockets leads to more reliable damage and more efficiency against multiple targets, but focusing it creates the biggest impact.

Turret placement can be a deciding factor in a battle. Against most enemies turrets are best when they can support each other, but if the enemy has a lot of area of effect damage your turrets can be destroyed quickly. Placing turrets in brush can lead to a surprise attack in your favor.

The success of Electron Storm Grenade is very important to Heimerdinger's survival. The slow and stun both are capable of keeping enemies in place long enough to punish them, but it is also the first line of defense against a surprise attack.

Advice to Win Against Aatrox

Keep your distance when Aatrox uses his Ultimate to prevent him from reviving.

Aatrox's Infernal Chains are easier to exit when running towards the sides or at Aatrox.

Aatrox's attacks are very telegraphed, so use the time to dodge the hit zones.
