League of Legends Heimerdinger Season 11 Guide: How to Play, Best Builds and Runes



This will be a fully explained Heimerdinger guide with the best builds, runes for the new season up ahead! read here to know how to play the most intelligent yordle: Heimerdinger, the Revered Inventor!

Heimerdinger – Runes & Summoner Spells

Even with the recent items changes in preseason, Heimers build did not change much: he still relies on long fights and late game builds to bring out the best out of his creations!

With these runes is really easy to proc from Level 1 with your turret auto attacks and counting towards the 3 hits needed. The burst has a long cooldown but at the end the damage dealt is more effective in team fights and 1v1 over that of Summon Aery or Arcane Comet. In addition these runes are really good for ambushes in bushes, Id suggest to use also ignite for a guaranteed kill.

Flash + Ignite

Usual Summoner Spell choices for heimerdinger is Flash and Ignite. Ignite is the universal option for securing a kill and escaping alive, using Zhonya or flash.

Flash + Teleport

But if you are planning on playing Himerdinger top lane it would be better to choose Teleport. However, If you know your opponent is quite skilled with the assassin he picked, you could also choose Barrier, depending on how confident you are on your Heimer skills.

Heimerdinger Build & Skill Order

Heimerdinger Items Builds

Here you can see the recommended build for Heimerdinger, his kit is centered on his abilities, so be sure to focus your build on increasing you Ability Power and dealing as much damage as possible with your Q and W. You want to build your Mythic Item first and foremost, as with the new recent items changes in preseason that is where your core will be.

Heimerdinger Items Builds

Depending on how your game is developing, you can opt for a more incisive choice of items on the match: generally speaking it is always wise to keep one of the defensive items, i would reccommend Zhonya as you can use it when in a particular difficult fight while you are between your turrets. Concentrate your playstyle around your Q and other skills, trying to stay at a safe distance from champions and their burst skills, therefore be sure to use his passive and other items to build movements speed as well as a lot of ability power.

Your first ability for level 1 should be Q H-28G Evolution Turret, and then you should start maxing it out. After that, you can start leveling up your W Hextech Micro-Rockets followed by E CH-2 Electron Storm Grenade. You have to remember to max your R UPGRADE!!! as soon as you can.

Turret (Q) placement can be a deciding factor in a battle. Against most enemies turrets are best when they can support each other, but if the enemy has a lot of area of effect damage your turrets can be destroyed quickly. Placing turrets in brush can lead to a surprise attack in your favor. The success of CH-2 Electron Storm Grenade (E) is very important to Heimerdinger’s survival. The slow and stun both are capable of keeping enemies in place long enough to punish them, but it is also the first line of defense against a surprise attack.
Spreading out Hextech Micro-Rockets (W) leads to more reliable damage and more efficiency against multiple targets, but focusing it creates the biggest impact.

Early Game

Your job in early game is to gently apply pressure with your turrets: most solo matchups annot deal well with your harrass and push if you play it well. Force the enemy to use their summoners spell and then when they recall push the lane and/or try to helo your allies in other lanes, but be carefull not to push when your turrets are far from you. Heimerdinger is pretty good at all stages of the game, he has some of the highest AP ratios in the game, so his late game is great too! Heimerdinger is mostly balanced around the fact that he has a lot of weaknesses: he has zero defensive abilites (other than his E, that can be easily dodged). One of his greatest strengths is the insane health regen he has (the highest in the game), and one way that you can abuse this is by setting up your turrets and auto attacking the other champ whenever they try to CS or get close to minions. When you put down new turrets and they try to clear them, aggressively defend them with EW and autos. Try to place them intelligently.

Mid-Late Game

His late game is much better than his early game because of his scaling possibilities. Early game, its more about his turrets and baiting out anyone who comes into your zone of control. However, in late game he turns into a bursty champ that can bring out tons of damage with his kit scaling and cc. His utility is consistent thanks to his crowd controls, but getting better at timing your skill-shots, in specific his E, is important. Rylai’s helps a lot with this, you can slow your opponent with the auto attacks. Turrets are surprisingly tanky late game due to an increasing ap ratio that scales with level, as well as dealing lots of damage, use them wisely and with precision.
