Item build in Season 3 has changed a bit.
This section is the section where I am going to explain some new items and changes to my old build.
These items has been famous ever since the patch. It gives awesome sustain in lane. Since the new item patch, every champion has gotten their base movements buffed. So, Heim is now not THAT slow, and doesn't ALWAYS need the +25 movement speed, especially with the sustainability you get with new item.
*UPDATE* The cost of
has gone up, meaning that you cannot start with
, meaning that you can get 2
to help you sustain still. Even with this cost increase, this start is still strong. Your
will also take a bit longer to build.
Of course, you could always start with more movement speed to dodge skill shots and be quicker in lane and when you roam. Three HP pots also help with sustain.
(Depending on what your laning against and whose fed.
are also a good pick against fed AD champions.)+
This core build helps you with a lot of things.
helps you with your Mana Regeneration and gives you Cool Down Reduction and some Ability Power AND some Magic Resist, which helps you lane against AP mids even better. Now,
is a really good new item, and works extremely well with Heimerdinger. His missles count as a single target spell(Yes, this means all three get the full burn when they hit) which means that his missles only hit even HARDER. This item also gives nice Magic Penetration and good Health. I find that these two items should be built every game. I suggest getting
before you get
. So after you complete
you can build
, and then complete
From this point, see whose more fed on their team and whose starting to get kills:
From this point, you can build according to how fed your opponents are...
Enemy AP champions dominating the game? No worries. Build yourself an
with the health you get from
. You can also build
for more health and Magic Resist. These items are good against really fed magic dealing enemies.
Enemy AD carry too fed? That annoying bruiser focusing you too hard? Get yourself the
for nice armor and AP AND the statis that makes you invincible for a short amount of time! Other good items are
. Now, I know what you're thinking, "Banner Of Command? On an AP carry? NOOB." Noooo. This item is very good on Heim. It helps him push EVEN HARDER, gives him some armor and synergizes good with Heim's passive! Giving your allies very high HP Regeneration just by standing next to you. And it lets your get yourself a promoted minion to push and you get the gold, you could go to one lane, promote a minion, then go to another and push with turrets, then go the LAST lane and help your allies and push THREE lanes at the SAME time. And of course,
is still one of the best counters to a fed AD carry, so building this will give you a good defense against them. And gives you some mana as well. AND CDR.
You getting fed hard? Want to absolutely dominate the game?? Build
right before or even BEFORE your core to get the charges fairly high so when you build into
and be nearly ready for it to transform into
. With this item, you have a fairly large shield to protect yourself. Then, while charging your Tear, you can get
for a MASSIVE damage increase! With these items , you will deal a crazy amount of damage.
Other Good Situational Options:
: This item provides great defenses to you as well as your allies, and also synergizes with your passive well. Good to get if noone else on your team does and you need more tankiness. It's good when there is both AD and AP damage destroying you.
: Another fantastic defensive item against balanced team. You also get a revive after death, which is always helpful if you're getting super focused down by their team.
: Good for Armor and frequent slow coming out from your skill use. Is strong with Rylai's for a strong slow. And gives your auto-attacks a boost. AND it provides nice armor. Get it if you need even more armor and tankiness and that extra slow.
: For some scouting skills. Also gives you some Movement Speed, Magic Resist and Ability Power. And a sweet, nifty passive for scouting out bushes, or check Baron or Dragon. It's not bad, but not really necessary. Get it if you want other wise there are some other options. But once again, not bad.
: This one is good. Even though you have already built
, you can get this with/or even instead of it. ONLY get this if your support doesn't, or your team is CONSTANTLY losing teamfights because of the enemy's CC shutting your team down. Get it for an entire team cleanse and turning fights around.
For you boots and the enchantment you can get, I suggest
. I like Captain because you becoming a pushing GOD and your allies will love the extra movement speed they get just by moving TOWARDS you. It's very good. Then of course the Homeguard ones are INSANE, you get health and mana back in no time and then you extra movement speed you get makes you recall and go defend, or back in a team fight in absolutely no time at all. It's fantastic.
