So, finally, Heimerdinger is receiving his rework, and this makes a lot of room for new theorycrafting. If someone want to see the new heimer in action, look here:

One very interesting thing I have spotted here. Rylai's Crystal Scepter applies to the spell of his turrets! Not to the turrets basic attacks, but this is a great improvement and makes Rylai's Crystal Scepter way better on him. But this also opens up new speculations: Does Liandry's Torment apply to this aswell? It should, because it applies to exactly the same targets like Rylai's Crystal Scepter. And since we know how good Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Liandry's Torment work together, we could see both on them on the new Heimerdinger.

The next very interesting thing about his build options is that Heimerdinger has now really good burst. His new RW deals a very big amount of damage in a very short time. This also allows items like Deathfire Grasp on him, which increase that even futher.

But still, Heimerdinger has his good old problem, mana costs. This makes Athene's Unholy Grail a must. It also gives 20% CDR, so combined with Crest of the Ancient Golem, you got the very important 40% CDR and the endless ability to spam your spells.

2 items should be a nobrainer on him, Rabadon's Deathcap and Sorcerer's Shoes these are a must on every caster. Void Staff is great on any caster aswell.

One item to talk about aswell is Zhonya's Hourglass. If enemy assassins jump on you, place down everything, stun them, rocket them and then, if they are still alive, use Zhonya's Hourglass and they gonna have a bad time.

So, many build options here, how will your Heimerdinger look like?
He is gonna kill you!!!

Waste.

Even with new skillset, Heimer's still a burst champ.

Buying stuff that delays this even while your turrets aren't your only source of dmg...
Nope.

You can get Rylai's if you need extended kiting power, but since every spell is AoE...

Otherwise get AP, which directly increases the dmg of EVERY turret shot and only get Liandry's when your enemy stacks HP.

YeahYeah technical standpoint.


The turrets make him a dps caster but he isn't one building RoA and stuff, he goes strong AP build and Zhonya's. Hence "burst", not really corret term, but you know what I mean.


Problem i see here is that for granting him his third turret and that beam, they nerfed them quite a bit.

Adressing the problem I ever had with a good Heimer I must say.
No slow-"barrier" on Ulti and no MR shred with every hit!


And also: Now that even Heimer's turrets work with on-spell effects, when is Shaco's turn?
Since Zyra showed up Shaco's boxes which don't work with MPen, Spell Vamp or Liandry's became rather laughable.

Now I do (tho with that logic sustained casting doesn't really exist, with a few exceptions like Ryze and Singed)

How can an addition be a nerf? :S

What? The MR shred remains to exist and the grenade has got a huge buff including slows.

The problems Heimerdinger had was that he was very turret dependant. He still is, but at least the turrets have more survivability and a 3rd one can be placed aswell.

Only the beam works with spell effects, not the basic attacks of the turrets.
