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

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. ”

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.”

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. ”

PRoli03 says “Free lane. Don't be overaggressive and you will do fine. You outrange his turrets and can take them down with ease using Q or R. (Lethal tempo or Electrocute)”
wDesired says “One of the most annoying matchups for talon or any mid laner imo ; Play for roams (Comet/Electrocute)”

ToHadesWithYou says “His turrets helps him farm and when you open a little, he will use his abilities which causes the turrets to attack you.”

Luciiid says “Good heimers are really annoying. You cant cs and have to pray for a jungle gank or for the heimer to waste stun. Take null orb and electrocute.”

wDesired says “Go AP Kat against a Heimerdinger IMO just because you can one shot him before he can use his abilities ”
wDesired says “All in him after 6 use Fleet into this matchup and don't get poked down too hard by Heimer”
TheHostileCat says “So. Frigging. Annoying. Nothing you can do in laning unless he messes up badly, call for jg help and kill him in teamfights. When he has ult - RUN AWAY. You can try to poke when he has no stuns. ”

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.”

Devilofthewest says “A good heimer dinger will wreck your shit . There are too many instances where you will need your E and it is very easy for them to force you to use it. Most likely you will get stuck trying to farm with your long range Q because if he stuns you when you try to last hit CS then his turrets will kill you ... and once he hits lvl 6 jumping on him will be suicide unless you have your E up and ready (this is a champ where EMPOWERED E actually is very useful so that you can block his whole ult or enough of it to get away ) This all being said IF you can burst him dead with your combo + ignite you can win but it is still HIGH risk . The only real thing you can do is take advantage of his lack of escapes , let him push up , try to get him to burn his ult and ping your jungler for assistence (also one final note for anyone unaware , his ult tower stays up if he dies , so if you burst him there is a high chance his ult will still kill you )”
GOD SLAYER PANTHEON (META+OFFMETA TOP/MID/JG) by Devilofthewest | Pantheon Player
EU_Toxicity says “Very rough for most immoblie melees including Darius. I'd buy 3x Rejuv Beads as you can keep one and buy adaptive helm later. You do have a chance to all-in him before 6 by dodging/flashing his grenade and running him down with ghost . If the grenade hit you just back off as he will surely outdamage you.”
xPetu says “Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport Tips: W blocks his Turret AAs. Use Passive shield when going in to kill Turrets. Engage only if he wastes E.”

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. A good Heimer will keep you pinned under tower all game. ”

RTO says “His turrets are very annoying and hurt like hell, but if you can dodge or bait his stun then you can possibly burst him down in one trade. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - DIFFICULT MATCHUP. DON’T TAKE TOO MUCH POKE. START DSHIELD +SECOND WIND INTO MERC BOOTS IF YOU HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN FIGHTING BACK. IF YOU HAVE BEEN GETTING OBLITERATED, GO FOR NEGATRON CLOAK 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. FORCE FIGHTS WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE TURRETS SET UP/IS NOT NEAR HIS TURRETS. FREE KILL WITH STRIDEBREAKER. 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 dshield 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. 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 and turret beams. 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 Negatron Cloak. 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 “Only difficult if your jungler never ever ganks. If you have a jungler with brain cells, you'll be okay.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. ”

Rime101 says “Ignite + electrocute + dorans shield Max Q Look to safe farm until 6 where you have strong all-in potential Kill turrets with Q if possible to attack his mana pool, also free gold Ignite can be good for stronger all-in”

OverjarlZane says “Heimer is very annoying. While, yes you can deal with his turrets if he places them poorly in a lot of cases he'll be able to lock you down and 60% you with one e-q combo. Give him respect, may wanna run Barrier for this one.”

Deathfeather says “I hate the disrespect abuse pick but ok, you go even and outscale if you play well enough. also the nerfs a couple patches ago hit hard.”
xf3NNI3 says “The same thing about Vel'koz can be said about Heimerdinger. Extremely high range, huge poke and burst damage. He's also quite immune to ganks and can take your turret plates extremely fast, especially if you pair him up with another mage, such as Fiddlestick, Zyra or even Vel'koz.”

Eccentricks says “This guy got powerful as an ADC recently, and more played too. I have only faced one in this new patch, but, lemme tell ya, I got smacked DOWN. There is really nothing to do but dodge if you see him. That high win rate got there for a reason. Lets hope he gets nerfed back into his place soon.”

mhsmhs123 says “The rise of mages in the bot lane has led to an obvious downfall of weak early game marksmen like Vayne. Not only does heimer do significantly more damage that Vayene early, but his turrets allow him to clear faster and have an overall better control of the wave, which hinders Vayne's ability to farm in order to get her items.”

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.”
