    A well respected scientist with a strong desire to prove science is the answer to saving the world, Heimerdinger's feeble outward appearance doesn't strike the fear in the heart of enemies. He makes up for his lack of size with his knowledge in science. Heimerdinger is yordle that lets his wild machinations do the fighting for him. Building turrets, shooting rockets, and launching grenades, Heimerdinger shows how science can be a devastating force on the battlefield.

    The Revered Inventor left Bandle City with a group of like minded yordles and traveled to the City of Progress, Piltover. Heimerdginer's strong passion for science led him to great success and formed the Yordle Academy of Science and Progress. His successes made him into one of the most respected minds in Valoran. Displeased with the current chaos in the world Heimerdinger enlisted into the League of Legends to show science is the key to solving everything.

    Heimerdinger is an effective lane pusher and tank. His turrets allow him to effectively take on two champions at once and push his lane. The Ch-1 Concussion Grenade can reveal targets hidden in brush making it an effective tool in tracking down fleeing champions or ruining ambushes. Heimerdinger large health pool and survivability makes him a great tank as well. Mobile fights and hit and run tactics is where Heimerdinger loses his effectiveness. Turrets are mainly tools for lane pushing and defense, not for chasing down enemies.

    • Turret placement can be a deciding factor in a battle. Against most enemies placing clusters of turrets is the best method, but if they have a lot of area of effect abilities your turrets can be destroyed quickly.
    • Placing turrets in brush can lead to a surprise attack in your favor.
    • When facing melee champions who are engaged in fighting, his Concussion Grenades can be a very effective stun as they will detonate almost immedately upon casting if the enemy champion is close enough. If you do not manage to stun the enemy you will at least blind them.
    • While trying to escape from a single champion, placing a turret down and activating your reworked ultimate can be a viable strategy to slow the enemy allowing for your retreat.
    • Don't forget that your grenades deal damage to towers, benefiting the team by tower gold and pushing the lanes faster; don't be afraid to roam!
