Guide to Synergizing Amumu and Heimerdinger

Tips for Playing as Amumu with Heimerdinger

Despair is very effective against other tanks, so make sure you're in range of opponents with the highest Health.

Amumu is highly dependent on teammates, so try laning with your friends for maximum effectiveness.

Cooldown Reduction on Amumu is very strong, but it's often difficult to itemize for it. Grab the Golem buff whenever possible to gain Cooldown Reduction without sacrificing stats.

Advice to Understand How Heimerdinger Will Play

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.
