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

Katawina52 says “If I'm being honest, just dont trade him and tell your jungler to stay away. That's all heimer wants, and doing so dooms this matchup. Only way to kill him is if he goes ignite/tp and you've poked him down in lane with harass combo (n. 2 on basic kata tips), but I wouldn't even risk doing this because it's not worth the outplay potential you need to do. Better to avoid doing what he wants and push>roam/2v2 fight. You're way stronger there than in lane. Mercs good vs heimer if they have more cc's.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “Relatively easy lane. Wait till lvl 3 to go in so you have windwall to block the grenade. Can easily e auto q his tower to one shot them and if Heimer gets pushed in he has a very hard time last hitting. Only way you die is if you don't windwall the grenade and take his RW to the face.”

7daysko says “Place R on his turrets and watch him have a panic attack.”
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.”

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.”

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.”

Halfhand says “This is the most predictable matchup in the game. He will always just look to perma push your tower. Make sure you push him in/ destroy his turrets before you consider roaming. Otherwise your tower will be gone really fast.”

Aethlo says “Heimerdinger has the wave clear advantage. || Heimerdinger wins pre-3. || Heimerdinger and Annie are equal pre-6. || Heimerdinger loses post-6. || Heimerdinger and Annie have equal scaling. || Tip: Use Q to last hit turrets - you can't really push him in so play to scale. Careful for when he buys a stopwatch - Heimerdingers buy this item a lot - so make sure to check his items. ”
Hienaa says “Won't let you roam, you cant kill his tower without dying, you will need a lot of jungle help, but the only thing you can do is try to get 6 asap and then spam jungle for help, but you will always be stuck in lane until you can go split side”

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)”

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.”

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. ”

ForgottenProject says “This is not a lane this is just Torment. You'll be under your turret for the first 15 Minutes of the game making you Question why even bother with this Game? [1]Take Teleport and Just Farm out the Lane, there's not much you can do here. [2]Take Corrupting Pot in Lane and Pick up Mercs so you dont get overwhelmed by his damage. [3]You can beat him if he doesn't have his turrets set-up or if you kill his turrets and still have Most of your Hp. [4] Don't ask for ganks just focus on farming till the Laning Phase is over, you will out-scale Hard.”

DarkyTheReal says “Easy matchup, Heimerdinger is very weak this season, and you kill one turret with auto+Q, just go for all-ins against him, and you'll destroy him. At level 1 if you can try to cheese him on a bush or something.”

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. Unplayable if he's good.”

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. ”

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.”

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.”

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.

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.”

SoSheolH says “His damage doesn't come from him so hitting him won't do much. If you run into his turrets you'll get melted no matter what, and they'll pick off your carries even faster. Very dominant in lane and ungankable early, which is where you shine. Your W works on his turrets so you can at least stop their empowered attacks for a little bit, but they'll still attack you since it's just a taunt. Unless the player is really bad, you won't be able to gank this lane, at least not post-six.”
