Not Updated For Current Season
This guide has not yet been updated for the current season. Please keep this in mind while reading. You can see the most recently updated guides on the browse guides page.
This is a guide for playing Heimerdinger in ARAM mode. When I looked up a guide i was suprised to find there weren't any. So I decided to write one. Please forgive me if you feel i made a mistake. If you want to make a change in the game, feel free to do so. Thanks for reading!
Some major pros are that he can do a lot of AOE damage and crowd control. Important in team fights. Another pro is his passive. He can increase health regen.
A con is that his turrets will get targeted and will get destroyed if not defended well. Make sure your team knows to protect your turrets. No turrets and Heimerdinger is probably dead or almost dead. He cant win even 1v1 fights. He's not made for that.
For items, I try to get as much Health and Health Regen as possible. I also try to get AD and Life Steal. The Sorcerer's Shoes are an important thing all game, but if you want to switch that to get more armor or health feel free to do so.
I set this up according to the guide I use for Summoner's Rift. It get the most out of the early game but doesn't neglect the mid game.
I chose Flash and Ignite. Flash can get you out of a losing fight easily. Ignite can do some damage to enemy champions.
The biggest thing to understand is that you provide great protection to your team and will get many kills with few deaths, if played properly. So your team has to understand that you need to be protected. If you die they lose almost 2 players with the damage you do.
It is important to know that you will not get much experience/gold from minions. 5 people share very few. That is why you must get kills and assists. That will give you enough experience and gold to buy stuff and level up.
Heimerdinger can get kills from people buy staying around his turrets but trying not to take much damage. Some people will not realize that your turrets can be very dangerous if 2 or 3 are deployed. Try not to get in a fight with some one who has twice as much health as you. He won't take those odds and win very much.
So, the next time you get a dinger in ARAM, please reference my guide and please recommend my guide to your friends.
