Combo Review #22: Ziggs + Heimerdinger Bot

Leave a Comment
The rising popularity of marksman Ziggs certainly leads you to wonder, what kind of new and zany combinations can you use with him? This brings us to the possibility of Heimerdinger support, a champion that's never been particularly popular, but is renown for his expert tower-pushing power and excellent zoning potential.

Introduction

The rising popularity of marksman Ziggs certainly leads you to wonder, what kind of new and zany combinations can you use with him? This brings us to the possibility of Heimerdinger support, a champion that's never been particularly popular, but is renown for his expert tower-pushing power and excellent zoning potential.

Why Heimerdinger Support?

Magic Damage Influx
There's a new rune meta going around where marksmen like Vayne, Caitlyn, and Jinx choose to go attack speed blues rather than magic resist blues. As a result, putting Ziggs and Heimerdinger together in a lane can absolutely devastate them early game, and snowball into early towers and a gold lead.

Excellent vs Jungle Cheese
Surprisingly, Heimerdinger is actually one of the stronger supports when it comes to beating back level 2 jungle cheese ganks. The reason for this is that he can set up a turret back-line that quickly gives you creep advantage, combined with strong level 1 damage.

Extra Tower Pushing Power
Last but not least is the most predictable advantage, which is that his tower pushing power synergizes well with Ziggs to really knock down an early turret and roam around the map for pressure.

How to Pick?

Picking Ziggs as Marksman and Heimerdinger as support can definitely be countered if the enemy team sees what you're doing. However, if you pick up some ambiguous champions, it suddenly becomes much harder to figure out the strategy. Here's an example:

They think:
Ziggs - Mid
Ezreal - Marksman
Heimerdinger - Top
Nautilus - Support
Graves - Jungle

In Actuality...
Ziggs - Marksman
Ezreal - Mid
Heimerdinger - Support
Nautilus - Top
Graves - AFK

Thoughts on Effectiveness

I could definitely see this working incredibly well against something like a Vayne + Braum lane. If they have an enemy support that is reliant on all-in attacks with no sustaining power combined with a single target ADC, they could quickly get cheesed into a 20 minute surrender.

Meanwhile, if they have something like a Jinx + Zyra lane, Heimerdinger's turrets would be largely ineffective and they may just end up feeding. Make sure to build Zz'Rot + Banner of Command on Heimerdinger for maximum turret cheese.
