Welcome to my guide about Heimerdinger, here I will give you useful tips, match ups, my playstyle, and essentially how to make the enemy mid laner cry under his tower. I will also give some credits to Stealthlink for some tips he gave to me recently while talking to him in ways to improve my kda and playstyle. Just because your good at a champion doesn´t matter you can´t learn new things so always keep an eye around for other people perspectives and of course ignore the rants you get that you suck at a champion or that you bought account on ebay, because if your checking this guide or any other means you want to learn the champion and that's the most important, \"learning\". I will be honest to any user reading this, most of my positioning learning ingame was thanks to Heimerdinger, he is a great champion to learn from on what comes to positioning. My profile link: http://www.lolskill.net/summoner/EUW/SuperButtPain/champions Pros of the donger: One of the strongest pushers ingame; Amazing tower defence mechanisms [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png]; Can turn many 1vs2 into your advantage and get double kills because of [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png][img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png]; Free barons at 20 minutes in many games again because [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png][img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png]; Feed the donger and you will make enemy cry to your superior tower defence mechanics; Donger turrets can be used as mini [img=items/sight-ward.png]; The builds mentioned on this guide make your [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] alot more tanky due to having more ability power so they can survive more during teamfights; Cons of the dinger: He is a squishy mage; The dinger is so answome junglers like to camp you so get [img=items/greater-totem.png][img=items/sight-ward.png]; Pushing to much can lead to dead dingers and dead dingers can´t dong any damage to the enemy so again get [img=items/greater-totem.png][img=items/sight-ward.png]; A dinger that feeds gets killed every time he gets to lane in most situations; Dinger is weak agains´t red smite items[img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---devour.png][img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---juggernaut.png][img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---magus.png][img=items/skirmishers-sabre-enchantment---warrior.png] it lowers your overall damage on turrets and purple smite items [img=items/rangers-trailblazer-enchantment---devour.png][img=items/rangers-trailblazer-enchantment---juggernaut.png][img=items/rangers-trailblazer-enchantment---magus.png][img=items/rangers-trailblazer-enchantment---warrior.png] makes taking down your turrets alot more easy and good junglers will always take these agains´t an Heimerdinger in enemy team. Season 3 Stats on my first account (5.2/2.9/7.0) Season 5 stats on a smurf account (9.6/3.0/9.6) Season 5 stats on my main account (8.4/3.6/9.0) [img]http://i.imgur.com/mHgqcQh.jpg[/img] Also wanted to thank a friend of mine for creating a kick ass overlay for my future game records.

At early game I usually buy 1x[img=items/dorans-ring.png] and 2x [img=items/health-potion.png]and 1x [img=items/greater-totem.png] and head to Raptors, place 3x [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] on the bush near Raptors. Raptor camp at level 1 is divided on 3x Raptors each one having 250hp and each one giving you 9 gold and 1 Crimson Raptor this one having 1200hp and gives you 41 gold. What your gonna do is focus the furthest Raptor and auto attack it so the turret beams focus all of them. After killing the Raptors let one of your [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] tank 2 hits of the Crimson Raptor and auto attack it and keep moving towards the direction of your lane but do this until the point you get the Crimson Raptor to like 400hp and start going to mid lane when you get to lane your level 2 earned 68 gold from jungle camp which is more gold than you get from the minions you lost as well the experience. Heres a video that explains it properly, however note that is not always possible for the [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] tank 2 hits from the Crimson Raptor or at least I have not perfected this yet, however I hope the video gives you proper information on how to do this. Video Link: [vid=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dUguV1dJWs] Credits to Stealthlink for teaching me this tactic.

After killing the Raptor Camp and heading to mid lane most of your opponents will push the first minion wave so depending if that happens place 1x [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] near your tower and level up [img=skills/heimerdinger/w.png] so you can avoid to lose minions and therefore gold as well, if that doesn´t happen your free to level up [img=skills/heimerdinger/e.png] and place 1x [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] in a more offensive style but be prepared to defend it because most enemy mid laners like to destroy them so use your [img=skills/heimerdinger/e.png] and stun the enemy near your [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] so he loses the trade heavily and will be forced to use a [img=items/health-potion.png] or enemy will lose around 175-250hp. Aside this your gonna farm normally and place 1 point on each skill and at level 3 you should have [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/w.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/e.png] you keep farming and be prepared to poke the enemy the most as possible before it gets into the 6minute mark. Now for the love of God don´t use this tactic always it haves its risks so use it properly and consider the fact that enemy jungler can gank you while your attempting this and you won´t have [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] and neither [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] or [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/w.png] or [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/e.png] and it can lead you too lose the trade badly and enemy can kill you. Now because you did the Raptor Camp you will hit level 6 at around 5minute and 25seconds mark, and your gonna wait until the minion wave after to tower dive the enemy, however make sure you follow these steps, make sure the Cannon Minion is healthy enough, make sure enemy is below 50% hp the best is below 35% hp or something around that, make sure the jungler isn´t around or ward one of the sides before attempting this so your safe. Ok, now make sure you push the incoming wave the fastest as possible and avoid that enemy kills Cannon Minion first, because this tactic is Cannon Minion dependant due to it´s tower attack resistance. Now depending on what minion reaches first to the enemy tower wait until it starts focusing Cannon Minion and deploy your [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png], the enemy will think either your crazy or noob in most situations or the ones that know this tactic will start running or even [img=summoners/flash.png]. If possible while tower diving try hitting the [img=skills/heimerdinger/e.png] on enemy and also [img=summoners/ignite.png] and it´s a guaranteed kill in 70-80% of the situations since the [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] auto attacks and the beam deal a ton of damage. If you manage to kill the enemy tell your jungler to force dragon so you can get a free objective and your team pressure his stronger early and all this is achievable in those first 7minutes but not always is possible to do dragon so either recall and push next wave and than force dragon or recall and go to dragon. Credits to Stealthlink for the tower diving tactic at 6minute and 5seconds mark.

From 7 minutes up to 20minutes you should try the most to complete a [img=items/morellonomicon.png] or [img=items/athenes-unholy-grail.png] depending what your facing on mid lane and after try to obtain a [img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] or [img=items/ludens-echo.png]. Rabadons Deathcap if your hitting most of the time your [img=skills/heimerdinger/w.png] or Luden´s Echo in case you hit the enemy from time to time. Usually 1st dragon in a game can start around at 7min mark up to 12/15minutes into the game, so make sure to have your [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/w.png] just in case to go for a dragon steal, if you got around 180/200ap early time your Ultimate+W when dragon haves around 950hp and most junglers don´t expect such strong burst so you can go for a steal its a 50/50 chance but always worth if you can steal the dragon and give 6% AP/AD to your entire team since this 1st dragon effect gets stronger and stronger the longer the game goes on. Also if you got the chance and if your jungler is at least a bit tanky you can do baron at the 20min mark, in some cases if you got the time since with my build I only have 2 turrets at the same time near the baron stage I advise you to place 1x [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] 20seconds before Baron starts and place the other ones as well and also place the [img=skills/heimerdinger/r.png] + [img=skills/heimerdinger/q.png] so it takes some damage instead of the jungler and it helps clear the baron faster. In a normal situation you can get 2 big turret beams from your Ultimate+Q and can add up to around 700/900 damage early game depending on your farm and items.

Whenever Heimerdinger does a pentakill you get a temporary passive called Eureka! Eureka!: Heimerdinger has solved the problem of having enemies who are still alive. Using careful experimentation, he has adjusted their \"alive\" status. FOR SCIENCE! [img]http://i.imgur.com/vXfAOrd.jpg[/img]

29/04/2015: Ranger´s Trailblazer Enchantment - Magus (\"Appears with the wrong item icon on solomid.net\"); 04/05/2015: Arcane Mastery: (Using the 4,95 ability power from the ability power quintessence and yeah I suck at maths); 09/05/2015: Placed new rune setups for Heimerdinger with Magic Penetration Runes instead of Hybrid penetration, since it depends on play styles and don´t want to force people to buy runes to test my play style and Hybrid Penetration runes ain´t cheap; 11/05/2015: The following match ups are completed however no video footage yet: [img=champ/ziggs.png] [img=champ/nidalee.png] [img=champ/syndra.png] [img=champ/morgana.png] [img=champ/katarina.png] [img=champ/ezreal.png] [img=champ/anivia.png]; 26/05/2015: Changed my masteries in order to explain more detailed to the normal player, my focus is to teach people how to use the standard masteries, so I ended re-learning how to last hit with the 21/0/9 or 21/9/0 masteries, did 3custom games without masteries nor runes for last hitting than 4-5games with masteries and runes, after 8 ranked games on a different account and 10normals so far and the results been answome. Remember guys whenever you want to learn a new playstyle always start with last hitting practice on customs and do this until you feel comfortable; 12/07/2015: Updated guide with [img=items/ludens-echo.png] and [img=items/rabadons-deathcap.png] changes. 31/08/2015: Added mid early game strategy and tips and tricks.
