Threats & Synergies
Heimerdinger is a Katarina Stomper, one mistake from her and she is dead, and you can predict where she can dash to stun her.
A good Zed will be able to dodge your stun, even after using his R, so make sure that you have a Stopwatch at level 6.
Easy to stun.
Dodge his ultimate and he should be dead.
Don't let her taking your towers, predict her moves and stun her.
Rush Morellonomicon and use your UPGRADED Q most of the time.
A good Yasuo will windwall your stun, play safe and don't permapush. Save your stun and UPGRADED Q in case he engages you.
If she dashes on you, try to react fast and stun her.
When Xerath is using his Q Spell, he has less movement speed, try to stun him during his Q Spell.
When she uses her ultimate, you can easily predict where she will be, stun her and she will be dead.
Morgana mid is uncommon but she can one shot your towers with her pool and your stun will be useless if she uses her shield. Let her push and play safe.
Place your towers away from the creep wave so he can't take them down or you'll stun him.
Keep distance but he is killable.
Play safe and poke.
Max your W as Malzahar can take your 3 towers down with one spell, try to kill him early. Tip : it is possible to cancel his ultimate if you throw a stun before he presses R.
My name is Staronabilos, I began playing league at the beginning of Season 8 and I'm currently in Silver. I am level 7 Heimerdinger player and I'll try to teach you the champ with my experience in my first guide ! ( Sorry for my bad English btw )
This is a MID Heimerdinger guide but it also works for TOP.
As this is my first guide, I know that it is probably not complete or well designed, but I will try to update it asap because Heimer is probably the best champion in League of Legends.
For secondary runes, I prefer taking Manaflow Band and Transcendence because it allows me to poke a lot and not letting my enemy farming. But you can also go for Ultimate focus if your enemy can't poke you.
If you are in a 1v2 situation, you should be happy because enemies will try to engage you, and if someone is on you and your towers, just stun him with your E and he will be dead, you can also put your UPGRADED Q to be sure that you take the double kill even if you are dead.
The funny thing with Heimerdinger is that most people don't expect your damage and engage you, which is good for you.
