Tips Against Heimerdinger in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Yamikaze says “The only way he can get a lead is if he gets to stack 3 turrets and push super fast. We can cheese him(before minions spawn) by waiting in a brush while he's stacking turrets and then take them down. Keep taking his turrets down when he's spawning them, and you will have no trouble in this matchup. Your windwall can block ALL his damage. ”

lkycch says “The lane dominance and bullying that Heimerdinger is capable of will put you under turret all throughout laning phase. Try your best to CS under turret. Don’t waste your mana trying to destroy his turrets with your bombs, as you will get pushed in anyways due to your high cooldowns early on. Remember: Summoner's Rift is a 5V5, not a 1v1. You don't have to stay in lane and suffer a losing matchup!”

Polarshift says “Super annoying to play against. But atleast your E spreads even if you use it on his turrets. Asking for a gank against this guy is a bit tricky, since in lower elos he will most likely get a doublekill instead. Farm up, outscale and outperform him in the teamfights and the sidelane.”
Yeager says “This is something i rarely see midlane because heimer is better top since he's oppressive against melee champions. Heimer does 1 thing: Stack turrets and shove people in. If you're fast, you can walk into one of the midlane brushes BEFORE the minions spawn to destroy his turrets with your team. If you manage to do that, the lane will become so much easier because you simply have to destroy every turret as soon as he places them. He will lose his ability to control the lane. If you can shove him in, his lane is doomed. Watch out for his E AOE stun. I often see heimer players using this ability right when you're about to attack one of his turrets. His W deals a lot of damage but it can be body-blocked by minions, so stay behind those when trading. Basically you use your range advantage to take down his turrets. Bait out his E (it helps having boots since it's a skillshot) and then go for trades. Even though i run phase rush into pretty much everything, it's really strong into heimer. You can counter his slows and dodge his skillshots with the bonus movement speed. ”

Drewmatth Taliyah says “Corrupting due to turrets. Hit as often as you can his turrets with your small Q (Q on circle). Use E when pushing, hitting cannons too in the process. Go for all ins whenever possible but predict and try to dodge his E (because the cannons will Beam you). Usually he will perma push you and ganks on him will be difficult but have no fear for that, just try to keep up with the push and focus on getting a kill either on him or on botlane. Very few players are experienced with Heimerdinger so try to abuse that.”

eiensiei says “Level 1 I'll rush to lane and kill his little turrets as he places them if I can. Other than that, most of the laning phase is spent under tower for Lux and I focus on getting as much CS as I can. I avoid roaming in this match-up, as he won't follow and is going to push fast and get plates. This is not as much of a threat because of the kill pressure, but he'll easily get ahead by farming better while I'm struggling under tower. However, ganks can definitely shut Heimer down and make him think twice before playing up to my turret again, so I'll try to ping my jungler for assistance.”

Sylvan Lore says “Heimer is usually very good at pushing people in and gaining large leads through cs alone. Orianna however does not struggle at all in dealing with him. You can use your range to safely remove his towers faster than he can replace them by simply using Q. I would not reccomend using Q->W to take them out though as this will make you run out of mana very quickly. Without towers up, this champion really struggle. Especially if you can push him under his own turret! If he has 3 turrets up, DO NOT try to kill him, even with your jungler. Recommend: Barrier and Dmg Build”

sweodigaming says “He has very good sustain. He is also very squish. Be careful to not get caught around his turrets, they can do much unexpected damage.”

7daysko says “Place R on his turrets and watch him have a panic attack.”
Phrxshn says “Consider being a full-time Proxy Singed because you will not out trade him. If you cannot push or set-up proxy consider skipping a wave just to proxy. Try to kill Heimerdinger if you chose to lane against him. Dodging his skillshots will determine if you can trade or not. (Recommended Items: Adaptive or Abyssal Mask for laning; Rylai's Scepter, Mercury's Treads) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Heimerdinger, Singed without turrets) (Outscaling Edge: Even)”
Phrxshn's Guide To Singed by Phrxshn | Singed Player
fwii says “Start Corrupting potion and farm until Jungle Gank. Heimer is very poke heavy with his Turrets and it's risky to trade against him early. Killable after level 6. ”
Scyrine says “Super annoying and but also super squishy. I see a lot of new players have trouble with him but once your in shroud the turrets he has don't attack you. Do a simple E backwards and Q combo to proc passive and place shroud and hit him with a Q>>AA>>Q combo.”
Yasukeh says “It's practically impossible to get on top of him until level 6, and even then it's hard to actually kill him. He can often 1v2 if he gets ahead of you, and it's easy for him to deny you. Just farm it out until 6 and you should be able possibly get onto him or just outskirmish him and getting leads through playing with your team. Take Triple Rejuv beads, and wait for ganks. Make sure you tank the turret during the gank with your ult. If you get a small lead on him, you can easily kill him through all of his damage. ”

FalleN3 says “This is a lane where he will generally have you shoved up to your tower all day long with his turrets. They are pretty squishy so try to not let him get x3 of them set-up. You can try to kill them with Q+W and (E) out as needed but be aware this will cost you quiet a bit of mana! Try to farm as much as you can, look for picks and out-roam him if possible. Use your mobility to your advantage. After level 6 you should be able to all-in him but be aware, even after he is dead the turrets will continue to shoot at you.”
Fizz Mid | FalleN3's Guide to Fizz by FalleN3 | Fizz Player
Dr Eggmund says “Don't underestimate Bill Nye as he is a genius after all. Avoid his turret's damage and all-ining him at 6 should be very simple for you as he is very-VERY squishy. Build resistance if you can't bare his turret damage but if you position yourself properly you should have the upper hand throughout all portions of the game.”

Glasletter says “Burn his turrets and watch him cry.”
Fuzzmonkey says “Syndra is basically the biggest counter to heimerdinger since you can pick up his turrets with your W. Constantly poke him with Q as well. Easy win.”

Aegox says “Heimerdinger is extremely annoying because he will literally just hide behind turrets to block all your shots. Try using your R to get behind turrets, hit an E, then Q around the turrets to hit him.”
[10.19] Aegox's Zoe Guide For Beginners by Aegox | Zoe Player
Fuzzmonkey says “Work around when he has turrets near him. If he doesn't go in for trades, other than that don't go near him and just farm as best you can against him. At level 6 will be your best all in opportunity, make sure you hit everything. Biggest thing about the match up is to not let him hit you with the stun grenade, this will pretty much kill you if all 3 of his turrets then hit you after. Other than that, just play it safe and wait for him to use his cooldowns.”
[10.19] Fuzzmonkey's LeBlanc Guide - Always win lane 100% by Fuzzmonkey | LeBlanc Player
Eoba says “The matchup becomes extreme if he's running barrier. The only guarantee to winning this lane is to only W Q Auto, as Q'ing first will let him predict where you'll land...and then he will follow up with E.”
Yuki H. says “Though it seems to be a difficult lane, Zed can actually start q'ing Heimer's turrets while he's setting them up before minions spawn in lane. (2q's per turret). For in-lane trading patterns, do NOT look to W in if Heimer is holding both stun and rockets with nearby turrets. Only look for aggressive trades if he does not have turrets or rocket/stun grenade. Otherwise just try to poke him down with abilities without going too near.”

RedFire2055 says “Heimer is one more of easier matchup for Brand , you can always all in him and wait farm under tower while you can continue to harass him. You can use his turrets for kill him with ultimates.”

Hullos says “Building tear can make this guy useless as you can just farm his turrets and maybe even kill him because his cc his mediocre. take TP for tear and scaling.”
Impossible2Gank says “Even though his turrets can easily take out your boxes, if you lend a few points into E you should be able to poke him down enough to go in for a play with your R. You can also try to bait him closer near your turret to make a play or wait for jungle pressure.”

BloooodTV says “D-Blade. Use his turrets as mobility against him. He will poke you a bit but it won't be enough to force you out of lane, especially if you can keep the pressure up on him. You should always have lane priority in this matchup. Outscales you. Take Fleet or Conq (Depends on team comp).”

Try to farm as much as you can, look for picks and out-roam him if possible. Use your mobility to your advantage. He is pretty squishy so after level 6 you can 100-0 him but be aware, even after he is dead the turrets will continue to shoot at you. You can use your Shroud to drop tower agro once he is dead. It is a tough lane Pre 6 though!”

Heimerdinger has way better scaling and waveclear than you all game, he is also as good or even better than you on teamfight He can easily deny you entirely on a fight with his empowered E,its pretty much impossible to kill him during lane phase. Take the comet rune setup so you can waveclear as good as him and poke him during lane phase.”

Proma says “Dshield You're better off looking for roams than trying to kill him as most of them tend to place towers and permashove/sit under tower. If he blows his E and you get on top of him you should win.”
economistastonks says “No one likes laning against this cruel genius. You can try to all in if he is low on mana, but at level 6 he will be able to simply stun and burst you. I wouldn't pick Pyke against him. ”

Chiefsnake says “Annoying early game because he can out shove you with his turrets so you just have to farm until you have enough points in W to shove and roam”
Scuffed Asol guide by Chiefsnake | Aurelion Sol Player
elnino9 says “Setup Q daggers on him and poke in/out - After Shunpoing on Q, immediately use W to get a full refund on Shunpo and use that to shunpo back out on minions. Careful when he has too many turrets next to him if you attempt an all-in. Start Doran shield. You will be pushed in this laning phase most of the time, last hit under turret, careful for his rocket poke under turret. Don't need to win lane as his strength comes within being a bully in lane.”
SkellyBirb says “You don't have much kill pressure as his turrets will deal damage even if you stun him, but you can roam to gain your advantage and he won't be able to stop you easily.”

Veralion says “HoB/MANY BEADS. Hope you’re good at farming under turret, cause you’re going to be doing a lot of it. Your E is on too long of a CD to cleanly deal with his turrets, but you can do enough to keep him on 1 or 2. 2 E’s or an E-auto will kill them; try to line up shots which get a few last hits and also hit a turret, then follow up with a melee if you think you can get away with it. One turret shooting you does very little damage. You should be able to prevent him from leapfrogging all 3 turrets too far forward, which is the real threat of Heimerdinger. Stand behind creeps to avoid full-wave missile hits. You won’t be able to avoid his missile spreads, but they won’t hurt too badly. If you get clipped by a grenade, turn on W and run perpendicular to the incoming turret lasers. You’ll be able to run right out of the most damaging part of his kit. Do NOT get grenade stunned around 2 or 3 turrets or you'll be chunked right out of lane. He squishes easily, so you can kill him once he shoves in after you’ve just backed and bought, but check his inventory first and don’t get baited by Zhonya’s. He usually takes the Stopwatch rune. If he plops down a big turret and uses stasis, you’re probably dead. You’ll need to immediately go on him when you get back to lane after a buy before he chips you back down again. If you incidentally hit his big turret with your E during your all in, smite it to finish it off. Orbit him while you’re hitting him to make it harder for him to land grenade stun; the direct hit radius is pretty small, and mind those turret lasers! ”

Tauricus2017 says “His turrets are very powerful and annoying to deal with. There is not much you can do in this matchup. If you engage, he will most likely stun you between 3 turrets and interrupt your W. If you will try to outpush him, you most likely won't succed as he can control waves very easily. Call out for ganks and try to kill him as a team.”

Marumo says “Threat level 2. When first you lane against a Heimerdinger it seems a very hard lane to win. However, Heimer actually gives Veigar the perfect conditions to thrive. Heimer gives you turrets you can Q to get stacks off of, he makes you farm under the safety of your turret and he makes you wait for the late game. When you hit the late game you should have massively outscaled him. Just dodge his stun and it's easy stacks.”

You will not have priority in this lane and he will smack you but remember that your utility in teamfights and late game scaling is superior.

Also, don't try to outpush this guy, accept that he is keyboard smashing drooler smashing his QWE buttons so play to farm.”

CC Diana says “This is an awful matchup. You can't do anything pre 6 and post 6, it's still bad. Heimerdinger likes sitting inside his ring or turrets which makes it incredibly frustrating to CS and risky to dive in. Pre 6, you'll have to sacrifice some CS farm with Q. Keep an eye on the white bar on Heimer's turrets. When the bar is white, the next shot from the turret will deal increased damage and will pass through units so do not be in the line of fire. Once you are 6, do not jump in recklessly. Heimerdinger will likely still be sitting in his ring of turrets which is his safe zone. Assuming you do dive in, make sure he used his E (stun). If he catches you with it, it will empower ALL of his surrounding turrets which will either kill you or get you very low, not to mention he will also UPGRADE!!! his turret to a super turret. So, poke him out with Q to get him low and go in for the kill when you can. Don't take unnecessary risks.”

RagexAddict says “Heimerdinger is by far one of the most frustrating champions for Fizz to deal with in lane. He will constantly push you to your tower and make it difficult for you to CS effectively. Try your best to farm up and all in him by levels 2-3 if possible. Taking teleport against him might also be a good idea if you're confident that you won't be able to get at him in game.”
SrSuders says “Aufgrund der kleinen Geschütze die er aufstellen kann mach das Fassen von Heimerdinger schwierig. Jedoch wenn man Heimerdinger eine Falle stellt oder schnell one-shotet, in der Backline z.B stellt er kein Problem dar.”

Tips Against Heimerdinger in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “Heimer is just simply annoying in my experience, very hard to kill him early but he also shouldn't kill you, he's going to just be pushing you in 24/7 so try calling for jungle help pre 6 before he gets his big turret. Try your best to push in this lane and atleast keep it in the middle of the lane, if you ever land an E on him you should be able to kill him quickly in one full combo, but do be careful of stopwatch/zhyonas which they usually get early since their turrets can do the work for them.”

Sovereign Kitten says “You can (Q) his turrets and kill them with 2 (AA), so your objective is to focus on this and avoid using abilities, if you prefer to not max (Q). However, if you do max (Q) you can kill his turrets in one (Q) so long as you have the AP early game, which allows allowing you to press your advantage of shoving him back and not setting up a perma shove into your tower. Keep on your toes scout! You need to be vigilant and keep avoiding all of his skill shots. Once his towers are down for a tiny second you can get in and poke him a little or continue to simply take his turrets down until he's out of mana. However, if he places all three of his turrets down on top of each other... It's over. You can not trade with him period so don't even try to, you lose the lane immediately. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - DIFFICULT MATCHUP. DON’T TAKE TOO MUCH POKE. START TRIPLE REJUV BEADS+SECOND WIND INTO MERC BOOTS IF YOU HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN FIGHTING BACK. IF YOU HAVE BEEN GETTING OBLITERATED, GO FOR SPECTRE’S COWL AND FARM UP. YOU OUT SCALE HIM IN 1V1. IF HE GETS COCKY AND STEPS TOO FAR UP, PULL HIM IN AND CHASE HIM DOWN WITH GHOST. ASK FOR JUNGLE HELP IF POSSIBLE. CONQUEROR WORKS. AFTERSHOCK IS GOOD TO HAVE IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS. PHASE RUSH MIGHT WORK. FORCE FIGHTS WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE TURRETS SET UP/IS NOT NEAR HIS TURRETS. A Heimer lane is poke city. Take EVERY anti poke thing at your disposal. His rockets do so much damage if he lands all of them that you might need to start triple Rejuv Bead in order to have enough health to actually survive in this lane. On the bright side, he will almost ALWAYS be pushed up so he is very gankable. Not to mention how if he is overconfident and steps too far up, you can run him down. He is low hp so you can kill him very quickly. The trick is not dying after, as his even if he isn’t there to attack you, his turrets will be. Unflinching in addition to Second Wind is great. Conqueror is good but Aftershock is great as it allows you to survive his rockets. Phase Rush CAN work though. I’d recommend packing tenacity and Rushing Merc boots if you think you have kill pressure on him. If he completely destroys you, just give up and build SpectrE’s cowl. On the bright side, you outscale him in the 1v1 as you tend to be very tanky so as long as you dont die and get whatever farm you can get, you will get to a point where he is free food for you. Feel free to kill his turrets using your Q or W. But later on, they become so tanky that the damage you take while doing so is not even worth killing the turret, especially since Heimer will just put another one down.”

Drake6401 says “A very annoying laner no matter where he goes. If he's feeling extra petty, he'll go top. This is just a farming lane for the most part as he will run from every fight. if he tries to poke with his stun grenade then you have an opening to engage. Make it a very very short fight. PTA rune is recommended and use bushes as a get out method to disengage his turrets. He's terrible at lane control and inevitably overextends which makes him vulnerable to ganks. ”

LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “His turrets block your hooks and Thresh's immobility and short range makes it difficult to avoid his stun. You also lack the damage to efficiently clear his turrets although you can pull them under turret with Q. Heimer is squishy and immobile so if you ever hook him he's dead. Good luck doing so...”

Rhoku says “This matchup is going to be HELL. For the first 5 levels, you just need to sit back and make sure not to take damage. Trust me when I tell you that 1 stun grenade, regardless whether he lands the slow or the stun, will lead to you getting chunked from full to half HP INSTANTLY. If you can land a pull, your combo will do a lot of damage to him, as he is innately a squishy champion but trying to do so will leave you vulnerable. Just make sure you SURVIVE until level 6. Give up CS, conserve HP and try to passively exist in your lane. On the bright side, your ultimate CHANGES the entire dynamic. His turrets and etc won't be around to help him in the Death Realm. So look to Ult him either AS he throws out his stun grenade, OR as he puts down his super turret with his ultimate. This way, you will cancel one of his major abilities which will allow you to just walk up and murder him with little resistance.”

LoLReal says “Heimer is hard for us. Punishes us hard early game and isn't very easy to kill. Also difficult to gank. Build an early spectre's cowl in this lane and farm. Mordekaiser can be more useful in team fights so be patient. Heimer builds early zhonya's so he can also be tricky to kill inside of our R. Punish him before he finishes zhonya's post 6.”
LoLReal says “Enjoy farming under turret because that's all you'll be able to do in this lane. Ungankable champion too, obnoxious to play against. Build early cowl and focus on farming well for mid-game.”
Ravenborne says “Mandatory to get 3 Rejuv Bead as Start. Simply can not touch him. If he gets close to Tower however you can run him down with Ghost because your Damage is far greater than his. Just be sure to not let his Stun Grenade hit you at his turrets because he will then be able to finish you off.”

ERNESTSAURUS says “FLEET FOOTWORK / SPELLBOOK SETUP - DORANS SHIELD / 3 REJUVENATION BEADS + POT = Heimer is a really inmobile champion but he can use that to his advantages with his torrets. In this lane he will always permapush since his torrets will automatically autoattack you, but you have to play it safe enough to not get poked, once the wave starts pushing back you can kill the torrets with your minion wave and then look to waste his mana like that. Fleet in this lane is really good but if you feel confident you can try to go for Spellbook. if he can't get an advantage in this lane, later on you will beat him 1v1. Look to setup a splitpush situation where he has to match you and look to all in him when he hasn't placed his torrets yet, the torrets are his main source of damage, without them he is super squishy. Remember you can stack his torrets with Q.”

The main goal is to not get hit by his stun. If you get hit, not only that you'll get hit by his W, all of his turrets in a 1000 range from you will target you and deal bonus damage. If you manage to dodge his stun and land your parry on him you should out damage him before he can out damage you. ”

wallobear53 says “Heimerdinger will attempt to shove you in while simultaneously trying to poke you. Destroy his Q with your AOE abilities while simultaneously clearing the wave. This will help you match his pushing power and will keep you even in the lane. Avoiding Heimerdinger’s E should be your top priority, no matter which lane you belong to. That ability when paired with his Q turrets can destroy your health bar and kill you immediately if you don’t have resistances. While CS’ing, make sure you don’t get hit by his W as it will give him a push as well as a trade advantage. Make sure you don’t let him shove you into your tower, or else he will just siege you under his tower or roam around the map and get leads elsewhere. ”

Head to lane at the very start of the game and make sure heimer doesnt set up his turrets in lane, and also make sure he doesnt cheese your jungle buff level 1 either. Merc treads can help in this matchup or you can take tenacity on your runes If you are able to consistently take out heimer's turrets in the early game and not allow him to have 3 up at one time you can outsustain heimer's auto's and get very good early pressure on him. If you let him get his turrets down then he will be able to pressure you and shove you under turret and deny you CS. Post 6 you can look for allins on heimer however you need full fury and close to full hp to look for it, also you need to take out heimer's turrets before going after him or else he will burst you very quickly and kite around his turrets while you are ulting. Once you get about 2-3 items you can start beating heimer even when he has full turrets and cooldowns ready, still a good idea to take out his turrets early though so he doesnt have the burst of damage for after your ulti is over. In the mid-late game split push, if you don't think you can dive heimer then look to push him in and use your superior mobility to outrotate him on the map and potentially flank his team while he is holding the wave.”

Premièrement, prend "Second souffle" pour la regen vie quand tu te fais poke, deuxièmement prend note du placement de ses tourelles, et essaie de toutes les toucher avec ton A pour les détruire rapidement, ensuite, le E de heimerdinger (sa grenade) et son sort le plus dangereux, si tu parviens à l'éviter, non seulement tu ne seras pas Stun mais en plus les tourelles n'utiliseront pas leur attaque spécial sur toi. Si il utilise mal on E, utilise tout de suite fantôme et court lui dessus, en réussissant ton A tu le tuera à coup sur, n'oublie pas de t'éloigner des tourelles une fois qu'il est mort car elle continue à jouer pendant 4 secondes après sa mort.

Sometimes it might sound like you have a nice opening to engange him but trust me: You don't. Also, there are very few junglers that can help you, most often than not heimer will just kill you and your jungler, however, there are a few mid laners that might: If your mid laner is ahead and has burst - talon, fizz, diana - you can ask them for some help, be aware that heimer might kill both of you and if your mid laner denies to help you that's a very wise choice. Stay calm, you scale better.”

Subject3 says “stay under tower, stay under tower... stay under tower, look your skills can only target one thing, if he hides behind his turrets your q does nothing, if you try and swallow his turrets you will get nothing out of it, he has more. if you try and swallow him! look at him go at mach speed around his turrets and you barely able to stack at him, and then die.”

Discord Rengar Mains says “Frustrating, like most yordle matchups. He will basically try to either turtle with his turrets or push like a maniac and keep you under your own turret, which is bad because you need bushes to have any pressure on him, and if he gets to scale he can be terrifying. Lane is fairly even otherwise, he is very squishy early and if you get a lead on him he either rushes Zhonyas or keeps dying without jungler assistance, both of which will set him back significantly. Try killing his turrets as soon as they spawn with a Leap + Q, they will reduce his pressure significantly and give you an opening, but respect his E+W damage or you might find yourself losing the trade if you don't have Emp W at the ready. At level 6 his ult will make directly jumping into him a really bad idea unless you are already ahead, so try playing carefully around it and don't be afraid to ask for jungle assistance to secure the lead. All in all, manageable lane where you can just crush the game if you get ahead and just farm if you are behind. Ignite is good for early game pressure, specially since he is squishy. Fleet and HoB both work well enough, conqueror is an option too but he is very squishy and you don't really want / need long trades on him.”

DobbieTheElf says “Really annoying. Try and destory turrets with ranged autos if possible.”
Erenando says “Uninstall. No seriously you'll have a very hard time at stacking since he can kill you under your own tower. You must manage to survive the lane until you got spirit visage, mercury's and of course sheen to fight him of, but until then you're basically fucked without your jungler.”

Thr3shPrinc3 says “Neither one of you will really "win" this lane. Heimer doesn't have kill pressure on you unless you engage him in his turrets and you can sustain through his poke using Fleet Footwork. Try and shove your minion wave and roam into the enemy jungle or down to midlane. If you get a lead you can kill him in about 4 charged auto's once you have Stormrazor and Rapid Firecannon so if you do get a lead make sure you push it. Late game you can 1v1 him and most likely kill him before he really gets chance to do anything else.”

Use auto-q on each turret and the E auto reset + crit to get rid of the turrets. 2. If Heimer doesn't have turrets, he auto loses. 3. Heimer will naturally push the wave due to the turrets he places down. Kill them, then freeze the wave, then run heimer down. 4. You don't need to w Heimer Stun, you just need to W Heimer to slow him down. You can use your q at max range to give you more wiggle room to dodge Heimer stun.”

BePatient and you will come out of the lane ahead on cs and the tower take down. Hurricane will change the lane once acquired for sure. Place plenty of wards around tribush and in the river. When Heimer backs to upgrade is when you take your stabs at the tower. It will be a slow lane as your jungler may be hesitant to gank due to his abilities and turrets. LVL 6 also changes the lane significantly in your favor.”

DrMoneybags says “This matchup is very annoying for any melee toplaner. Heimer is a burst mage that excels against low-range champs. His turrets cost very little mana and he can constantly shove you in if you don't have tiamat, which will let him poke you a ton. Be careful when you engage on him with E, he can retaliate with his stun and that'll blast you with his turrets. Wait until he throws his stun grenade and then dive onto him. He gets enhanced movement speed around turrets, so landing your Q can be a bit tricky as well. Once he has Zhonyas it's pretty hard to beat him without a lot of MR since he can use his enlarged turret while he's in stasis to chunk you out. ”
Arcthunder says “The Donger is an annoyance to everyone. If you don't know why, see in the Tough Matchups section.”

E61K says “Start Doran's Shield and take Second wind + Conqueror. Heimerdinger has always been frustrating to play against as an immobile melee champion. The best approach to this would be rushing Specter's Cowl and then destroying his Turrets with Q's or a quick AA+W and then all-inning him when he has little to no turrets placed. Stacked turrets into a grenade can easily chunk you so hard that you need to cower behind your turret or need to recall. Other than that if you can't cope with him his pushing nature opens him up for a nice gank. Just play it smart so you and your jungler don't get double killed.”
SwiftOblivion says “Strengths: Consistent damage from turrets, Hard to Dive, AP, CC. Weaknesses: Low Mobility, Squishy. He'll be trying to poke you down heavily early game so build a hexdrinker against this guy and after you gain a few levels start trying to remove his turrets to mitigate his potential damage output. You will eventually outscale him and deal enough damage to kill him in a 1v1 so play the waiting game and don't give him a huge lead. Once you have hexdrinker, you should be able to all in him once he is either low on mana or is on cooldowns. That is your chance to punish him and gain the lead that you need in the lane. Don’t be surprised if you have to give up your tower early, that’s just how the matchup can turn out a lot of the time.”

Ashnard says “Heimer has a lot of damage and lane control due to his turrets, but you can easily kill them with 1q + auto when u get the chance. Be careful of his stun grenade, it will chunk you pretty hard if it hits in middle of his turrets.”

STO Dew says “A very annoying match up since his turrets keep on poking you. Again just play safe.”

DERPFISHrejects says “Your Q can quite reliably kill turrets in the later stages of the game. He's still going to bully you early, but you can win trades if you can bait the grenade out or have taken down some of his turrets.”

Dacnomaniak says “This lane is not gonna be fun. The Constant turret pressure means you cant really go in early. But an Adaptive Helmet and it will make your life a lot easier.”

IllIlllIIlI says “This little fucking yordle manages to piss me off everytime, but still not an extremely difficult lane. You can often come out on top if you manage to out manouver his stun.”

GOTG Ment135 says “Linea muy molesta. Todo lo que puede hacer es sentarse, empujar y esperar que suceda algo emocionante.”
thedunkening111 says “The 'you're not going to do anything' lane. What can I say. The good thing is you got tons of lock down, so ganking the guy isn't totally out of the question. Take Aftershock”
Nechu2448 says “He is annoying so much. Heimer can build sentries you can go past them or anything . you can try destroy but aslo heimer is danger , he throw at you grande and turrets start attacking you. To defet him you need jungler help ”

DuhBrandon says “I know this a top guide but you have no idea how many people I've seen go heimerdinger top lane and crush me. Trust me its not fun. There is a high chance you will be behind on farm. if the heimerdinger gets ahead it will be near impossible to catch up so your best bet is to all in when you can and abuse your shroud.”
galvapheonix says “ Heimer isn't really played very much but if he is all you have to do is q the turrets and they die. Without his turrets he lacks any damage to kill you throughout the game.”

Aqua Dragon says “Poor turrets. They are surrounded by a never ending swarm of Voidlings, and the turrets themselves can be easily eliminated with some long-range Q's.”

Suseri says “Just farm don't fight get more points in W to sustain in lane if he pokes you under your turret. It's winable but not worth the effort and risk since he can just wait for your Q stun you to the place and let his turrets kill you while keeping his distance again.”

Ardent Deceiver says “Ganking Heimer sucks because of his turrets, he can burst you down easily if you don't play smart and even kill you in death. Reccomend ganking behind to avoid turrets if possible.”

Neallord says “You go in and he puts down his turrets that wil notify him you're close. If you engage he just destroys you with his ult.”
XERA 08 says “Along with Illoai, never gank his lane. Heimerdinger will stand in the middle of his three turrets E (stun) > W (rockets) > R (x3 empower) > Q (turrets) and you along with 2 other teammates that roam into his lane will be dead within 5 seconds. As long as Heimerdinger has 2 turrets next to him, you have to treat him as 2 champions worth of damage. Do not underestimate Heimerdinger during laning phase. However, during late game; when you see him spilting alone, this is the chance to strike. Simply E + Ghost > R > E > Q + W and fight him head on, as long as you can dodge his E stun, you have secured a 1v1 kill.”

Jadiac5 says “His turrets will automaticly start attacking you if he sees you so be awayre of that.”

Flashfire128 says “You will almost never be able to gank him. ivern has horrible turret clearing and he can make it hard to land your Q on him with his turrets.”
TheFalco62 says “The only way he can get a lead is if he gets to stack 3 turrets and push super fast. We can cheese him(before minions spawn) by waiting in a brush while he's stacking turrets and then take them down. Keep taking his turrets down when he's spawning them, and you will have no trouble in this matchup. Your windwall can block ALL his damage.”

Midsdead says “Let's be honest, heimer is a pain for most assassins, he can sit in the middle of a lane away from walls next to his turrets.”
Assassin Poppy Jungle by Midsdead | Poppy Player
SpicySkelleton says “Heimerdinger is difficult to gank. Only gank him when lvl 6 or if his turrets are down and he can't seem to put more out.”
Jungle Malphite.... It oddly works (sort of) by SpicySkelleton | Malphite Player
Leeup says “He is almost ungankable. His turrets will block ur E instanly, be aware of him.”
