Guide to Synergizing Xerath and Heimerdinger

Tips for Playing as Xerath with Heimerdinger

It's easier to land Arcanopulse on an enemy when they're moving toward or away from you, rather than side to side.

Eye of Destruction will make landing Arcanopulse easier as the target will be slowed.

If you stun an enemy with Shocking Orb, follow up with a guaranteed center hit on Eye of Destruction.

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.
