Heimerdinger kit update: What’s changed in 7.10

Everyone’s favorite engineer just got a little more exciting!

Riot Games

Heimerdinger has always been one of League’s most passive champions. Sure, he could throw grenades and shoot rockets, but it was all about the turrets first and foremost and you could only lay those down so fast. Until now.

In an effort to make Heimer a little more engaging to play, thanks to a laundry list of changes in Patch 7.10, Heimerdinger won’t just be able to place his turrets and wander away. Instead, his other abilities will work in conjunction with the turrets to help them become more effective.

In theory, these changes should make Heimer more fun to play in lane, more effective in team fights and a little less frustrating to play against.

For a look at the full Heimerdinger kit update look below:
