Summoner Spells Back to Top

These are the only summoners i think are worth taking, 3.png against champs like 238_64.png, 76_64.png or 64_64.png, who jump on you before dealing huge bursty damage, and against champions you really want to hit with grenade but struggle to do so, such as 103_64.png (also its pretty good as support heimer against vayne and such)

7.png is good as support, or if you are mid, since it gives you a small movementspeed buff for a few seconds, it might though rarely be used offensively for a finishing blow

21.png is my GO TO summonerspell, and the summoner spell i use most of the time, the ability to survive near the turrets while they are up is the most important thing for a 74_64.png, especially in earlygame you might survive a 2 v 1, and even more, you might kill both all alone, like i did a lot, A WHOLE LOT with heimer, the best chance you have of achieving that is probably with 21.png

14.png is for when you are fairly certain to win a lane and are not afraid of dying to a burst, such as against 105_64.png or 84_64.png midlane, also if you want to stop your hypercarry 157_64.png enemy from farming and are not afraid of getting outplayed whatsoever (or ganked a lot)

12.png is for toplane, or when you believe you will get a lot of opportunitys to cheese dragon / baron , 12.png because you might get ganked and die, to not miss too much xp and cs gold OR if you actually are a fortune teller, and know that you will have a lot of chances to turn a 3 v 2 fight around in bot and carry your team

11.png is for mid top or jungle, yes mid and top too, you might take the red smite and duell most enemys (since it reduces their damage to you by 20% and gives you true damage burn to your autos), also you can 11.png dragon baron and blue buff, or gromp wolves and birds (for oracle, vision  and strong buffs for you and your team), also you can do this if you trust yourself more than your jungler

ALL OF THESE SUMMONERS ARE PERFECTLY RANKED VIABLE, though you need to choose the correct one on situation, if you dont know which to pick always pick barrier, runglaive jungling is very strong blue aswell as red, dont pick purple unless a lot behind, but then u will probably lose, and only play jungle as experienced heimerdonger:D

the turrets are your bread and butter, they are what defines heimerdinger, gives him the ability to 2v1 early in the game, and solo dragon and baron at lvl 5 and at min 20 , depending on his feed and if hes jungle or not, also his teamfight dps, which beats most mages, thats why you max them, also they are awesome (albeit unreliable) waveclear and even good for escape (you place them and run) and you can use them as windwall against certain skillshots (nida/ez q for example, or blitz grab)

the W is your burst spell, it deals tons, especially if enhanced with the ultimate, but its very hard to hit completely unless the enemy is stunned or snared, you max it second, because you want to win fights and objectives, not support your allies

your grenade is the spell which makes you able to duell kata, akali, yi, tryndamere and so on, most usually strong 1v1 duelists.It enables you to hit your ultimate +w , or just a W completely, or it kills enemies which dared to attack you inside of your turrets its also the iniating spell as support, or the peeling spell depending on how you want to use it.

your ultimate is an enhancing ability, it makes you use your ultimate turrets, for dragons barons and towers, or for teamfights (possibly even 1v2/3s and duells) and is very reliabe, only iside his auto attack radius (since it slows). It makes your W very deadly (bursts some champions from full hp once your w is maxed) . It upgrades your E to a nami ult, a certain engage or disengage, + stun/blind which makes a favorable fight start no matter what, or deny an unfavorable teamfight, possibly (this is rather hard to stop just from just an R-E, but its worth a try)

worth noting that this ability has a rather low cooldown to begin with, which sinks even more as you level it up, and its the only ultimate in the game, that scales with the level into the basic ability itself.

as support maxing W is probably better, then q, since you will still want to get objectives, you will probably want to go w-e-q-q-q-r-w-w-w and so on, getting 3 levels into q to be able to stack the towers just in case a fight emerges. Maxing grenade never worked out for me so im not able to recommend it, not even as support.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

depending on matchup and lane you will want to start with different items, 2041_32.png is very good against champions you want to trade a lot with, and try to kil them, but you know they will trade a lot back, such as 101_64.png or against champions like 7_64.png which will try to kill you once you drop low, hence why you need a lot of potions
1056_32.png is the common start, which i usually buy, it helps you beeing dominant in lane vs melees, easy matchups and it helps you kill/punish some pesky champions such as 7_64.png and 238_64.png, should they missplay and close in on you too fast, or fail their disengage

1029_32.png and 2003_32.pngs are against very hard lanes which you dont exactly expect to kil them, or when you expect to get camped without the ability to kill both, such as against 92_64.png238_64.png or 58_64.png
1039_32.png is for jungling, dont even buy it on midlane, even if you took midlane 74_64.png with 11.png, just start with 1056_32.png or 1029_32.png + 2004_32.png2003_32.pngs, and buy the 3715_32.png at once , once you are back to base, never buy just the 1039_32.png unless you jungle.
3303_32.png is for supporting, and very rewarding for your auto attacks or hitting your W (since it proccs multiple spell hits, hence its very good against 3102_32.png aswell).

always! rush 3157_32.png and 3060_32.png, which first is up to you and your matchup. If enemys are full ad, you might not build banners command, buts its an insane item really, it makes your canonminion splitpush AND farm for you, you get the gold and the expereince on top of it beeing able to push two turrets alone if left alone , and it might help you siege a tower with your team too, on top of giving good stats, no idea why nobody buys this really!(BUY IT 3060_64.png) (it also buffs your turrets , even though the old buff was nicer). 3157_32.png is to survive near your turrets and for baiting and such, everybody knows just how effective the zhonya effect can be in a teamfight.

the situational items are sorted in "almost always a good buy", then the 3255_32.png upgrade which is situational,such as when your team is very reliant on you to achieve anything at all or when the enemys splitpush a lot, the next items are more situational items, which arent as good as the first 3/4 most of the time, but got times which you should understand yourself when to buy them, the next 3 are tanky items for survivablity, when you dont feel like you need more damage, but to survive more, you should try to buy one of these (instead of 3027_32.png for example) which is depending on enemy team.

lastly the jungle item, which you should you rush, should you jungle, if you are just mid/top with 11.png, get the red smite and leave the complete upgrade for the lategame, as for the 3092_32.png  buy it only as support, and buy it AFTER 3157_32.png/3060_64.png and 3361_32.png at lvl 9 (yellow+green, no 2045_32.png, just buy 2043_32.png!) since you will need gold for 3060_64.png and 3157_32.png.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

aatrox is super easy to deal with, just place your turrets, he cant deal enough AOE in a duell to kill them, then stun him and watch him get outtraded, and die, you can even kite to win the fight even more, even if hes ahead he wont be able to lay a finger on you as long as you have your turrets ready/up

VS

Ahri

Medium

a rather hard matchup, if she can combo you while your turrets are down you will very probably die, earlygame is kinda rough due to her q aswell, but as midgame comes you are able to duell her, especially if you hit your e, and even early in the game you can outtrade her with auto attacks just try not to take too much minion damage, and dont focus her in teamfights

VS

Akali

Easy

akali is a very easy matchup, just build your turrets and kill her if she tries to cs, and harras her at her own tower, if the jungler comes 2v1 them, once she hits 6, dont use E until she ults you, once she does , palce turrets, a pink , and CRUSH her, with ease.

VS

Alistar

Hard

he w-q s you, and tanks everything and all your turrets with his ultimate and hence makes you uselesss in teamfights ;(

VS

Amumu

Medium

his aoe spells are really annoying you and your turrets, spread them a bit in triangulars, so he cant hit more than ult on all of them, then you should be able to deal with him, its an easy matchup as long as you have vision and he doesnt combo you first before you are ready

VS

Anivia

Medium

you can burst her, but she can deal with your towers, and you will need another turret AFTER bursting her just for her egg, without dying to minions, MEH. She has big trouble dealing with your ultimate turret though

VS

Azir

Medium

same as anivia except for the egg

VS

Bard

Easy

bard is just a terrible champion, aside from that he has nothing he can do to you ON TOP of beeing squishy

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

his grabs are useless as you are not ccd, and awake enough to place turrets in between him and yourself

VS

Brand

Easy

looks like a hard matchup at first, but it isnt, you can burst him down, and lower his ultimate damage a lot by placing 4 turrets, pretty easy imo, just dont place turrets in the minion waves

VS

Braum

Hard

his wall stops all your stuff..

VS

Cassiopeia

Easy

easy, its hard for her to burst you and your turrets, just make sure her ult doesnt hit your beautiful face ;), you might want to keep turrets once you hit 5 to solo her, but by chance you might kill her even earlier

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

well, if he closes in he dies, since you have enough dps and he has no real mobility, and if he doesnt close in hes kinda useless aside from his q

VS

Darius

Easy

stay out of combo ragnge unless you got a few turrets out

VS

Diana

Medium

well she deals enough to burst you down completely, make sure you have towers and hit your stun, even then you need to kite around, take barrier and try to not let her get fed, then you are set, she is pretty tanky and deals tons

VS

Ezreal

Hard

his range is huge, and hes a pain in the ass, try to hit him with r-e and let your team kill him, or focus on peeling your adc, you cant really deal with him, unless hes ap, if he is go destroy him kid! easy matchup in that case

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

fiddled*cks HAHA, he is pretty hard to deal with, dont palce turrets, or you will get even more damage from his E, his R kills you AND your turrets, and while ur ccd you cant even zhonya, just try to kill him with e and w, maybe autos, when hes not on you. you may use turrets if you manage to cancel his ultimate, or have vision on him

VS

Fiora

Medium

with ult shes beast, without ult shes easy food. you cann kill her with ult if hes not too fed, and if you once you have zhonya

VS

Fizz

Easy

easy as hell, not much you can do wrong, just max turrets, and dont let him hit everything and autoattack you 20 times without doing anything

VS

Galio

Hard

he tanks your stuff, kills your stuff, your dog, and your face. meh

VS

Gnar

Easy

he cant kill your turrets when hes samll and is easy to burst, and once hes big hes immobile and kill your turrets anyway. easy matchup unless hes supertanky, then just focus somoene else or buy void

VS

Gragas

Medium

this match up used to be very hard, since his nerfs its gotten much easier, if he ults you away from your towers just run to them and you should be fine, dont let him hit too much

VS

Graves

Easy

easy, a low ranged adc? yum!, hit him or not, either way your turrets kill him, but you might die too if you hit nothing else

VS

Hecarim

Easy

place turrets as he closes in, which he certainly will

VS

Heimerdinger

Hard

OMG RITO PLZ NERF NO SKILL OP CHAMP!

VS

Irelia

Easy

another melee with no real aoe to clear your turrets, which dies to strong sustained damage *yawn*, just dont let him hit you 30 times in the face without doing anything and you are fine, even while stunned your towers hit him

VS

Janna

Easy

she cant do much vs you and your turrets

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

he has the ability to kill you and your team, but ad jarvan is rather rare, and more often than not, he just baits the enemy team to die to your turrets if he ults you

VS

Jax

Easy

same as irelia

VS

Jayce

Hard

huge range, easy clear of your towers, and lots of damage, a perfect counter. Place your turrets once the fight starts properly, not in the sieging phase, in laning place your turrets in between minions

VS

Jinx

Hard

same as jayce

VS

Kalista

Easy

jump around, too bad my towers are no skillshots

VS

Karthus

Medium

well, both of you die, and your towers die too if you get too close, try to burst him from afar. In the earlygame once you hit 5 stun him, then place your turrets next to him and start autoattack+wing him, maybe even 11.png3.png14.png if they are up

VS

Kassadin

Medium

depends on the earlygame, eitherway this match is very snowbally, once ahead that one will win much more

VS

Katarina

Easy

melee, just stun her as she uses e and she dies to your turrets

VS

Kayle

Easy

wow, 2 seconds of invincibility, THEN you die to my turrets, congratz (and still stunned meanwhile)

VS

Kennen

Medium

annoying, he doesnt remove your towers most of the time, but he removes you

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

his ult is not much of a prob since towers hit anyway, neither is his q since you have towers, just his jumpi s annoying, make sure to stun him

VS

LeBlanc

Easy

make sure to stun her, or push her in hard, stay high hp and ur golden, you might even kill her once or twice

VS

Lee Sin

Easy

he jumps in he dies, if he tries to ult you use zhonya, or get ulted, place turrets then zhonya

VS

Leona

Easy

dont let her hit her combo, you should be fine once you place turrets, try to not ler soak up too much of your towerburst, this is near the medium difficulty

VS

Lissandra

Medium

she can deal with you and your turrets, but then she cant ult herself, and she cant 100-0 you most of the time unless you let her freefarm or give her feed

VS

Lucian

Easy

low ranged adc, about the same as graves

VS

Lux

Easy

her aoe is not enough to kill your turrets, unless she commits to ult them. you will alway outtrade her, and you are able to burst her to death

VS

Malphite

Medium

flash his ult, get some reactions kid!, or zhonya his ult, and ur golden, place turrets and own him

VS

Malzahar

Hard

his ability give him an advantage when you place turrets, he deals with you AND your turrets easily, at the very least, if you predict well, you can cancel his ultimate with your e, when he ults you while your grenade is in the air, try to avoid him and focus on his teammates and objectives

VS

Maokai

Easy

he might be tanky, but he cant do much vs your sustained damage, just get commanders banner, and maybe even ga, and ur golden

VS

Master Yi

Easy

just stun him as he closes in, his insane damage wont matter if hes stunned and then killed (especially if you can zhonya with turrets up, if you place just one turret he will deal with it during your zhonya)

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

only her ult is annoying, otherwise really easy to deal with

VS

Mordekaiser

Easy

dont place your turrets TOO close to each other, but really easy to deal with, and your soul wont do much for him

VS

Morgana

Easy

her shield is not enough to deal with your sustained high damage

VS

Nami

Easy

about the same as janna, dont place all turrets into her q

VS

Nasus

Easy

dont let him farm your turrets, he is easy to push and harras, and possibly 1v2, just make sure you dont feed him stacks, and auto attack him a lot without taking minion harras, in teamfights hes even easier to deal with, if he stacks mr, switch your lane or buy void early

VS

Nautilus

Medium

he tanks your stuff with his shields and makes his team able to get past your turrets, meh, at least hes no danger himself

VS

Nidalee

Easy

block her spear with your turrets and your golden , when she closes in kill her

VS

Nocturne

Medium

if he doesnt ult you easy matchup, if he ults you without you building turrets with enough distance in between for them to not die to his aoe, you are in a pinch

VS

Olaf

Easy

lets be real here, olaf is just a weak champion, even if he is immune to your stun, he cant take your sustained damage, and he is no real immediate threat either

VS

Orianna

Hard

dont let her aoe you AND your turrets, and dont trade too many autos in a row with her, its hard to burst her, but its easy for her to kill you, that deserves hard difficulty

VS

Pantheon

Hard

his ult and e kilsl you and your turrets along, meh. not much you can do against him in the midgame, earylgame he is hard to deal with too, as lategame come you can duell and deal with him as long as he doesnt ult you. make sure to be careful with your turret usage in teamfights as long as he isnt in the fight

VS

Quinn

Easy

OHH NO; IM BLINDED BY A LOW RANGE SQUISHY ADC

VS

Rek'Sai

Easy

shes blind in her burrow and wont see your turrets, she cant deal enough aoe to deal with your turrets, and she cant  kill you fast enough, on top of whittling down to your turrets. easy matchup

VS

Rengar

Medium

this is on the easy medium side, unless hes fed and oneshots everyone , then you cant really deal with him if he focuses you

VS

Riven

Hard

huge damage, with aoe, she kills you, your friends, your towers, and then survives with her shields and mobility

VS

Rumble

Hard

if you and your turrets get ulted and qd, the teamfight is over, make sure he doesnt hit everything if you can. and kill him while hes overheated

VS

Ryze

Easy

OHH NO IM SNARED! AGAINST RYZE WHICH DEALS HALF MY DPS!

VS

Sejuani

Medium

dont let her hit your towers and yourself and you should be fine, otherwise though you might die on top of beeing useless for a whole teamfight

VS

Shaco

Easy

if hes not able to oneshot you and your turrets he dies, which is very hard to do, and if he is invisible but spawns within tower range he will get shot at immediately, utilize a pinkward, towers and your e for easy kills on an aggressive shaco, and a defensive shaco is pretty much useless anyway

VS

Sion

Medium

dont duell him, dont let him AOE you and/ or your turrets, you should be able to deal with him easily in teamfights, which you should focus on

VS

Sona

Easy

about the same as the other supports, see janna

VS

Soraka

Easy

you may want to buy morellos against her,otherwise the same as janna

VS

Syndra

Hard

she can throw your ultimate tower away, and she can burst you easily, if you want to fight her, keep a few towers in your pocket so you can spam her, aside from that make sure you dont ever fight her unless you hit e+rw

VS

Talon

Medium

unlike the other melee assasins with invisibilty, he can AOE your towers and you, and burst you 100-0 and STILL get away most of the time. make sure he does not get fed or very farmed

VS

Teemo

Easy

he can burst you, but if you dont eat too many shrooms irl or ingame you should be able to deal with him,since you burst him more easily

VS

Thresh

Medium

his lantern can save people you are trying to whittle down, and even if you block his  q with turrets, he can close in to flayult you, aside from that hes as easy as the other supports

VS

Tristana

Easy

until she is lvl 15 or so, and her range is big enough she is like most adcs, and even after that, she cant really deal with you AND your turrets, you may have to use r-e and rely on your teammates to kill her, and if you manage to e her, you might be able to rw her. lategame gets a bit trickyer

VS

Tryndamere

Easy

even if hes fed, hes easy to outplay, you MIGHT not be able to kill him, but he certainly wont kill you, he is rather easy to stun

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

you can burst him down, but if he is pobelter v.2.0. (lets be real here most tfs blow), he can farm your towers, your creeps, and dodge your es and scale better than you do

VS

Twitch

Hard

his ultimate kills you and your turrets, its very hard to deal with him as heimer, just r-e him and hope your team stops him (unless nobody peels for him, in which case you can try to flash on him or use r-w)

VS

Udyr

Easy

its just udyr... stun him as he closes in and enjoy the gold

VS

Urgot

Easy

a low ranged adc without the ability to deal with your towers. he even gets damage as he ults you

VS

Vayne

Easy

a low ranged squishy adc without the ability to deal with your turrets, and as she enters and leaves stealth near your turret range she gets hit by them, a very easy matchup

VS

Vel'Koz

Hard

all his abilitys are annoying to you, but his ult is on a whole other level. hes basically a twitch just with magic damage and not reliant on ultimate. meh, try to burst him down if you can with e+rw, he might not be as heavily guarded as twitch is

VS

Vi

Easy

zhonya if she ults, and shes udyr if she doesnt (jsut stun her in her dash) and ur golden

VS

Viktor

Hard

this champ outduells you from afar and from close by, and his stun hits you through zhonya, even in teamfights he seems to outdo you, avoid him , focus on his teammates and objectives

VS

Warwick

Easy

buy a banshee, then hes like udyr too, and if he ults you anyway, use zhonya after he ults you and you placed turrets

VS

Xin Zhao

Easy

dont let him ult all your towers away from you, then he should be very easy to deal with

VS

Yasuo

Easy

the difference between this guy and braum is, that he cant take his wall with him and will die once he closes in, very easy to eal with, just place turrets in a triangle and stun him as he closes in

VS

Zac

Medium

he can kill your turrets, but not you, keep your towers stacked vs him and replace them

VS

Zed

Hard

he kills you in your turrets AND survives, coordiante a chain cc with your team, or outplay him hard, using zhonyas, clever ability positioning and maybe even buying ga

VS

Zilean

Easy

you respaned near a full automated defensive system... amazing! enjoy a second death

he is the type of carry that works well if your pc or your internet is slow, and still skill dependend and enjoyable on top of beeing near the upper edge of hypercarrying a "bad team, that beeing said, it only works if enemys dont have more than one hardcounter champion, or if enemys dont EXACLTY know what they are doing, which should be super rare below ~ plat 3 though and even then it is rather rare up to dia 3 from what i can tell

DO YOU LIKE TO CARRY YOUR TEAMS HARD?

DO YOU LIKE TO CHEESE DRAGONS BARONS AND TOWERS?

IS YOUR INTERNET BAD, BUT YOU WANT TO ENJOY SKILLCHAMPS ANYWAY?

ARE YOU SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING THE METASHEEP OVER AND OVER AGAIN?

GENERAL ADVICE Back to Top

Towers in autoattack (although not the beam) range of anything you can autoattack  will focus that target, unless they are ccd. meaining even if you get chased , or if you get dived, you need to do autoattacks while you run. otherwise the towers aggro like minions do, only helping you against champions if they attack you next to them, and not caring about target just attacking whatever is nearby. Directing your toweraggro is very important!

Only play towers on top of each other when you are ambushing somone in a bush, and NEVER in any other time in game, not even against dragons blues and so on. Alway try to split them in a triangle so far away from each other that they are hard to hit by abilitys like 115_64.png q all at once, but still able to attack an aggressive 77_64.png all together.

74_64.png is great at killing dragon and baron (maybe even the best champ to do it), 20 min baron and lvl 5 drags are soloable if you are somewhat fed, and almost always doable with JUST the jungler around. Buy a pink and try to do it each time you hit lvl 5, at 20 min, and from then on each time the drag/baron is up, try to have them all and give the enemy none!

even IF they come (which they usually dont if you got a pink maybe even a sweeper and they had no ward) with your towers up and ready you win most skrimishes anyway, especially if they panic

EARLYGAME ADVICE Back to Top

Almost always you should place your turrets at the start at your wolf or ghost camp (depending on where your jungler starts) and clear that camp as fast as possible, so you hit your lane on lvl 2 (unless you play support or top w/o tp)

Usually you should place your turrets in the lane as soon as you get there, depending on enemy abilitys, play them close enough together for them to push your wave, and defend you when needed (remember they attack anything you also autoattack as long as you are in their range) but so that its hard for him to hit multiple turrets at once.

Some enemys such as 30_64.png268_64.png103_64.png require you to keep your turrets, because they focus them down, and then You place them when they used their tower-removal spell/ when they hard engage, or when you want to be aggressive, once you stunned them and closed in, in the case of ahri, you better place it between you and her to catch a possible charm, but usually you want to place it sideways so it doesnt get hit by spells directed at you.

Focus on farming until your wave is pushed properly, once its pushed,either go for a quick ward somewhere nearby (where you expect the enemy jungler might gank from) or harras the enemy under turret with autoattacks and w, you can use e only if the enemy laner is very low, or you know where their jungle is, because you will have to dance in between your turrets and minions while dodging skillshots and 3.pnging / red 11.pnging the more dangerous foe, and trying to stun either one,both, or the one who is about to die to turrets+autos+minions+possibly your w (if still up)

Once you hit level 5 and got enough gold for 3191_32.png3108_32.png or just a second 1056_32.png + a 2043_32.png and maybe 2 2003_32.pngs head back to the fountain and go shop. Then head to dragon with a "on my way" spamping, and do it with your jungler, if he wont come do it alone then brag about it. From here on time the dragon and head there always 30 seconds early with a fresh 3362_32.png or 2043_32.png and do it as soon as it comes up!
