Threats to Heimerdinger with this build
|Tahm Kench||he rarely goes top but if he does just focus on just harassing him with autos then putting your turrets behind you so he doesn't eat them, lane should be fine since hes slower than you|
Hello! I see you want to learn how to play Heimerdinger. I'm gonan go through the basics and hopefully with time and mastery of this champion you will achieve greatness! With this guide it's very situational, so I've given clear instructions to every match up I've faced in the top lane, as well as some of the meta picks. So you will increase your winrate if you are aware of the situation because no game is identical to any other!! Please take time to really enjoy Heimerdinger and everything he has to offer, and if you have any tips please feel free to leave a comment, or up vote or down vote. So good luck on the rift young summoners!
there are two types of runes that i will go through first rune page is a simple runes page with 3 quints of ability power 9 magic pen reds 9 armor and 9 magic resist this is your basic rune page in every situation this page will do exactly what you want.
the second page is my everyday every lane page. 3 ability power quints , 9 red magic pen , 9 yellow greater seal of scaling health , and 9 blue greater glyph of cool down reduction . note that this second page is for a skilled player who knows about range , lane advantage and disadvantage , so please be wary .
I've gone into detail about most top lane champions I have faced during this season . So take the time and look through green to red scale also take note that there are different builds that help you against different champions so be aware its not an automatic win but it will give you the best chance possible.
pros & cons
+ Strong Anti-Gank , 1v2 with heimer is common but try and wait till your 6 so you have an advatage.
+ Great split pusher / Zoning
+ Sustain with passive
- Generally Squishy, slow, and no escape
- Junglers will constaly try and gank you , so beware and play safe till 6
- when falling behind its hard to catch back up.
