Threats to Heimerdinger with this build
Pro Tricks and Tips when playing Heimy
When in lane try to position the turret between fight minions and caster minions or next to the casters aka make sure they are behind the front line minions so they aren't attacked as much, unless trying to deal quick enemy champion or tower damage.
When fighting divers/burst assassins use the Shotgun formation one turret at the front line to attack minions and champs before and after they dive and one in the back near you between front line and your tower (closing the gaps where the enemy receives no damage for attacking you leads to victory in lane.)
Try and stay in range of at least one of your turrets at all times when near danger zones.
Heimy can steal any jungle creep by placing turrets over the wall by getting rally close to the wall and pressing the spell near the outer radius of spell range and throwing grenades and rockets at the right time. aka you can steal drag, buffs, baron and other jungler creeps. You can even farm wraiths while still in mid lane farming creeps.
Don't be afraid to be aggressive in lane and in pushing.
Farm anywhere you can!, example you go to help your Jungler or another lane and leave a turret in lane or near a camp you can get cs/exp because you can split farm and split push since you have 3 turrets to work with, within the given timer.
When using banner of commands active be sure to be in front of the tank minion wave before it passes you or while the minions are busy fighting *before you activate it, if you have Captain's Boots built.
The combo is to setup turrets before hand and try to predict where the fights will occur then stun rocket and re-setup turrets if destroyed.
In lane to poke and harass enemy laner just wait till enemy minions are low then shoot rockets through them, they never see it coming. XD
Rockets are great for finishing off enemies and killing runners just make sure your in range and aim!
Try to get max Area coverage for your wards aka try putting them in spot like the huge open gap entrances that are near the mid lane river by the wraiths on both sides looks like a land ramp into the river.
If you are focused on killing enemy that is a tank or melee but is not a great diver or is ranged but is a burst like Ryze you should Clump your turrets together and try to throw all your spell in one are to burst enemy down.
Remember that you can stun with grenade then follow up with utli rocket for a sick insta-burst combo. or follow up with utli turret if you have more cc helping you or big team fight.
Practice using Heimy's stun grenade and making turrets without smart-cast.
Believe in yourself!
REMEMBER YOU ARE HEIMERDINGER EVERYONE RESPECTS AND FEARS YOU AND WILL FOCUS YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE SO COOL, SECRETLY OP, THE MOST MANLY MAN, A GENIUS, AND YOUR STRUT/SWAG WALK DRIVES THE LADIES CRAZY!
ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ﾉ RAISE YOUR ****ERS! ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ﾉ
The main Focus in spells is to MAX TURRETS and ULTIMATE then level up the rest when available. You can Max rockets but only if you can hit them consistently and only for counters that rekt your turrets.
The goal of this build was to utilize Heimerdinger in what he was meant to be A Lane Pusher this build uses many aspects of AP users needs but also is custom to Champions that summon minions to the Fields of Justice. The thought process behind some items behind Mejia's Soul Stealer, Banner of Command, Captain's Boots, GA, and Unholy Grail are all done with a goal and purpose to help Heimy win the game. Mejia's Soul Stealer is a great comeback item if you have given up some kills or you need a goal in game to strive for to help you win, Most people will say its only good if you are getting kills, and yes that is true, but it also builds off assist aka "teamwork" The goal is to get kills while having this item but it also encourages you to focus on assist and team plays to get kills or assists it forces you to look for situations to make great plays and (gives you that goal that if you don't stack you lose! but if you do you can win!) I cannot stress this enough Mejia's is a legitimate, cheap, quick, and easy way to get AP item! It is not a troll item, its real and it was made for a purpose and works great with mid-late game Heimy and early if your doing awesome! The Banner of Command works Great with Heimy in many ways it provides even more pushing power with its active and passive and increases the HP re-gen and Attack Speed of Turrets, Allied minions, and Allied Champs. The Active on Banner of Command can only be used on tank minions (NOT SUPER MINIONS) and is good for collecting gold and exp for you, (I recommend using it in a lane that is unnoticed by the enemy and can sneaky split push like bot or top depending on the enemy and positioning.) The next Item would be Captain's boots which makes sense for other mobile Champs that summon minions that move but for Heimy you may ask yourself why? The answer is simple when you leave the spawn spot for the minions while going to mid and the minions spawn while you are walking by you change the speed or tempo of all the lanes minions movement the radius of the effect of captains boots is big and can speed up all minions leaving your nexus at once. The next question would be why do I want to speed up the push of all the lanes also easy answer to push down towers faster. The Captain's Boots with your Banner of Command makes you have one of the most Godly pushing powers in the game and it all benefits Champions that summon minions aka : Heimy and 8 other. The Unholy Grail is great for getting the 40% max CDR that you need since the Banner of Command only gives you 20% and you need mana for Heimy + MR for enemy mid laners, so the Unholy Grail is the best item for the job. The GA is an item that most Champions that summon minions have yet to Capitalize on yes its a great defensive item, but its also a bait/trap and offensive item. Because when GA passive is activated you take a while to re-spawn you can use that to an advantage by summoning minions to attack the enemy while you re-spawn this lowers the enemy health if not killing them, to where you can finish them off when you re-spawn with half your health while they have barely any left. This same concept applies to Hourglass but the safety time is shorter.
*So GA gives you more time to deal damage.*
The Pick is the 1st item you will want to build, to not only get an early start on building up gold to buy future items, but to do AP damage while your at it. After that you may need wards, pots and 2 Mana regen items and boots. The Fiery Charms will build into the chalice and next you will build 2 ability tomes one will build into the Fiendish Codex and the other will become the Mejia's Soul Steal-er . Then you will upgrade your boots to Captians. After that you will want to either finish building the Athena's Unholy Grail or build Armor/Neg.Cloak for the GA. I recommend building the GA after you buy the armor or neg cloak for it. After that the next items are to ensure Heimy as the Greatest Pusher, you will need to buy another Fiendish Codex and build it into a Banner of Command. After this you will need to upgrade your boots into Captain's Boots.
After these items are all build I have set up an option for any situational need in the game All you have to do is SELL the Lucky pick after you are finished building the core items (that are enlarged above) Check Gold status before you sell pick.
"I usually sell the pick after I'm done building and I have around 1600-1400 gold enough to buy a Needlessly Big Rod to turn into The Rabadon's Hat or Zhyona's HourGlass." You can build any of these 2 items sooner and build Banner of Command after selling the pick. If you really want to start the doran's ring then you can...
After all your items are build or even a little bit before they are finished you can buy the 3 End Game consumables.
