Threats to Heimerdinger with this build
|Teemo||If you must fight your own son, I will warn you that he is a threat. Honestly his poison is the only problem. In a true 1v1 Heimerdinger would likely win. Just bring health potions.|
Hello! I see you want to learn how to play Heimerdinger. Well don't worry! In this guide I will tell you how to play Heimerdinger, give you tips and tricks, item analysis, and more! If this guide helps you please give it a vote and share this guide with your friends! Anyways, here is my guide on Heimerdinger: Teemo's Dad.
Who is Heimerdinger?
The first thing running through your mind is "Teemo's Dad???". And no, while this isn't true, he basically is Teemo's dad. They're both equally annoying and can clutch kills with 5HP. Except Heimerdinger does it better.
Techmaturgical Repair Bots (PASSIVE): This is Heimerdinger's passive where he is able to give health to allies and the turrets themselves, but not you. Like you'd think he would be able to make a device that heals himself too, right?
Evolution Turrets (Q): You place a little turret and you can anywhere on the map. This is what makes Heimerdinger hard to kill. Not only are you getting all the CS without even trying, but if your enemy wants to kill you they have to go through your turret first.
Apex Turret: When you use your ultimate on your turrets, IT GETS AWESOME. You spawn a huge turret about the size of half of an actual turret. It shoots huge bullets and lasts for eight seconds. Click the spoiler below to see how much this scales with your AP. The numbers are crazy!
Rockets (W): This is what makes Heimerdinger Teemo's Dad. So think of this ability as Blinding Dart. You shoot rockets that have good range, and depending on where your cursor is, it can shoot really wide as well. So not only do you have protection, but you can poke your enemies even more! Or even get a kill with Heimerdinger's next ability...
MEGA ROCKETS!: YOU SPAWN IN OVER 5 SETS OF ROCKETS. I CAN'T SAY ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT THIS. ONCE YOU'RE LEVEL 6 YOU'RE BASICALLY TELLING THE ENEMY TEAM "GG IT WAS NICE KNOWING YOU".
Stun Grenade (E): This is your grenade. If you directly hit someone you stun them for a short duration. If you don't directly hit them but they were in range of the blast radius, they are slowed. I've also noticed that I do a tick off of their health. I don't know if this is a bug or a glitch but I have not yet found anything saying that it does this.
Lightning Grenade: So when you ult your grenade, it bounces three times. Each bounce can stun an enemy unit. The slow is also increased to 80% instead of %35. Honestly don't ult your grenade unless you're playing support. Use it on your turrets or rockets instead.
UPGRADE!!! (R): Obviously, this is his ultimate. He upgrades all his abilities, and the next ability he casts will be upgraded. So for instance you press R, then W to spawn in your mega rockets.
Pick up this item early game. Not only will it be at full stacks mid game, but you also get lots of mana, which is what Heimerdinger needs. Make this at least the second item you pick up.
These items are clearly for the ability power. Since Rabadon's is very expensive, you can pick this item up mid/late game. Zhonya's Hourglass can be bought late game as well, but I do recommend you buy a Zhonya's before you buy a Rabadon's because of the active. Rylai's, honestly, it doesn't really matter when you buy it unless you're going up against tanky champions.
This item will make your enemies scream in fear. And no, it's not just the ability power, it's not just the health, it's not just the magic penetration, but it's the PASSIVE. Burn your enemies for 6% of their current health. If their moment is impaired they take double damage. It's beautiful :,)
This item is a good replacement for boots, and gives you ability power and a nice passive. Similar to Liandry's Torment, the passive give your next basic attack bonus damage from 75% of your AD and 50% of your AP.
How To Play Heimerdinger
Heimderdinger is easy to play, but takes strategy to play him right. So how I do such thing you ask? Well I'll tell you.
Once the kind lady welcomes you to the rift put a point into your Q for early minion clear and lots of CS. From there on upgrade your W, then E. From now on you'll be upgrading the W the most, your Q second, and your E third. And of course anytime you can upgrade your ultimate.
Place turrets in the middle of the lane. When your turret is done refreshing, place them closer towards the enemy territory. Why? Because it's hard for people to take out your turrets without getting hit by your rockets. Unless they're ranged of course. Poking and trading with Heimerdinger is like taking candy from a kid that's lending you candy. You can't touch this guy. And the enemy tries attacking you they're gonna risk getting stunned with your E, and then getting rekt with your W.
So use your turrets for early lane pushing. Use your W for doing damage. And use your E to position everything. Honestly Heimerdinger is one of the most fun champions you'll ever play as, next to Rek'Sai, Gnar, and a few others.
If someone is chasing you, stun them, use your W, then run to your turrets. They're gonna think that they can kill you, BUT THEY CAN'T! The turrets are like Teemo's Toxic Shot. You think you're gonna kill him and then Teemo's pops an auto and BOOM! you're dead.
When to use your ult on turrets: When an enemy is chasing you and you are low health. This should take care of them. But use this especially if you're bad at landing skill shots.
When to use your ult on rockets: Unless you can't land skill shots, USE THIS 100% OF THE TIME.
When to use your ult on bombs: If your playing support than yes use this. If not, don't even THINK about it.
If you're used to playing the highly strategic Teemo, you should be able to rek any lane you feel like. So for Teemo mains learning to play his father, think of the turrets as mushrooms, the rockets as blinding dart, and the bombs as a toxic shot that stuns. And think of your ultimate as, well, the reason why you're probably gonna get a penta.
Honestly this is all you need to know about how to play Heimerdinger. He's fun, he's practically unkillable, and is like Teemo's Dad. You will be a the bane of everyone on the enemy team.
Heimerdinger is fun and annoying to go up against. His kit is one of the most unique in the game as well.
