Summoner Spells Back to Top

12.pngTELEPORT
If you are against an easy matchup in top lane you should almost always go with 12.png so you can counter your oponnent's 12.png (if he's teleporting to gank another lane) and also to maximize your gold income and not miss any minion waves or control your domination in lane by not letting your previous turrets die.

3.pngEXHAUST
In top lane you will get ganked a lot as 74.png. You are a natural pusher and the enemy jungler will want to gank you lots of times. So if you are against a very good ganker or vs a difficult matchup (ex: 39.png or 107.png

4.pngFLASH
Best spell of the game by far. The spell it's just so useful for ever champion unless you have a 4.png like ability like 35.png. Also 74.png has no escapes and relies on his stun to not get caught in lane by the jungler but his grenade is very hard to land and has a long CD so it's going to be very useful for you.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

CUNNING

SAVAGERY
Let's you last hit better which is very important for you because sometimes your h28gevolutionturret.png will fuck your last hit.

ASASSIN
You will get ganked a lot and fight 1v2 a lot. So if we have this mastery we will be able to do more damage + we don't need Secret Stash because our own health regeneration is pretty high.

MERCILESS
There are going to be a lot of situations where the enemy will be at >40% health and merciless is going to help us a lot.

DANGEROUS GAME
Like I said before we will be facing lots of 1v2 so if we have this mastery and kill the jungler or the midlaner while fighting we will be able to survive. This is a very good mastery overall it also helps a lot during teamfights.

PRECISION
Some use Intelligence others use Precision. I prefer Precision because you basically have more damage and in the laning phase you will constantly harass the enemy champion your facing against and if you go Precision them your autoattacks will hurt more.

THUNDERLORD'S DECREE
Best mastery for 74.png since only 3 rockets can proc them, you harass a lot with your autoattacks so it will definitely help you and also you can burst down people with your ch1concussiongrenade.pngupgrade!!!.pnghextechmicrorockets.png combo.

FEROCITY

SORCERY
You benefit more from ability power thant from attack speed.

FRESH BLOOD vs FEAST
Take first blood in an easy matchup (normally against melees) since you are going to autoattack them a lot. Meanwhile take feast during a hard matchup for the increased survivability.

NATURAL TALENT (4 points) VAMPIRISM (1 point)
Well natural talent give us flat stats in this case flat damage (AP and AD). Again giving up 1 point in natural talent isn't going to hurt a lot and that 1 point in vampirism is going to help us in some way.

BATTLE TRANCE
Bounty hunter is too risky you never know if you are going to be able to have lots of kills, double edge sword is also risky since you are going to take 2.5% damage and when a jungler will gank you you are going to die faster. Battle trance is overall better than this two masteries because you are a DPS mage, your turrets are dps not flat damage and you get 5% ncreased damage without taking any risks. Remember when we are fighting as Heimerdinger the main source of damage are the turrets and if we die the turrets die, we need to sruvive as long as we can.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Should always buy these at the start of the game.

Core Items

    standard ap
    splitpush
    sorcerer for standard ap and ionian for splitpush

Situational Items

    [see description]
CORE ITEMS

Standard AP
3116.pngIt synergises so well with your turrets since the autoattacks from them slow.
3165.pngYou need to have at least 35% CDR since Heimerdinger has long cooldowns and the AP and mana it gives you it's going to be very good for you during early game/laning phase.

Splitpush
3060.pngEven though it doesn't give you AP anymore it can still work for Heimer because of his pushing potential.
3512.pngIf you combines Banner and Zz'rot and push a lane with it, it is going to destroy any towers the minions go through.

Boots
3020.pngSince you are going to have 35% CDR you don't need the ionian boots.
3158.pngYou need to have at least 35% CDR so it is a necessity for you to have this boots if you are going to take the splitpushing path. Also having more CDR means that you can push faster.


SITUATIONAL ITEMS

3089.pngOnly buy this item if the enemy team doesn't build MR.
3135.pngIf the enemy team is building MR buy this.
3151.pngIf there are too much enemy champions with high HP then buy this.
3001.pngIf the enemy team has a lot of magic damage then buy this.
3285.pngIf there are too many squishy champions buy this.
3157.pngOnly buy this if there is someone who can burst you down and is trying to kill you.

As always don't follow a certain build path in every single game, for example: you can rush zhonya's and then build you morello's or viceversa. You need to adapt to the situation and analyze the game.

About me Back to Top

Hi thanks for reading my guide!

I've been playing league since season 3 and always been a big fan of Heimer. I play in LAS. I don't speak english so apologises if you didn't understand the guide 100%. I made this guide to help people because I always see people that don't know what to do when they are new to the game and I wanted to create this guide to help people understand not only new ones but also people who want to main this champ. :)
