Does the new item make Heimerdinger viable again?

Athene's Unholy Grail seems like a gift to Heimerdinger from the Riot gods. It makes chalice of harmony viable as a first item, allowing Heimer to get a meki pendent lvl 1 and b once he hits 850 gold to get nearly infinite mana and boots. the %15 cdr puts heimer just at %39 at lvl 16 with only the sorcery mastery, and gives some tight AP.

Fellow yordles, Is it time to bring back the great Inventor?! to revive the glory days of 6 turrets, champion seeking missles with insane range, and tower damaging grenades?!?

We must Unite and bring Heimer back into the meta-fold. His time has come!

It may certainly make his early-midgame transition a lot smoother and more powerful, but I think the problem with Heimer really lies in his lategame capability to do pretty much.... nothing to be his problem =\.

I dont think heimer really has any problems with mana or cooldowns, his problem seems to be more that hes a slow moving turret. without his turrets by his side, he doesnt do too well and has no escapes. with his turrets there, he is able to unload quite a bit of damage. not to mention him being fairly slow as well.

so no I dont think this item will change much of his game play by much.

Um, so why couldnt he do this before the upgrade came out?

Hed start meki, get a chalice. Then instead of doing a fairly inefficient chalice upgrade immediately, he could get a Deathcap, Rylais, Abyssal, Evil Tome, etc.

For 90% of the game, there will be no real change. The upgrade is only so chalice users wont have a totally dead end item lategame and can upgrade instead of selling it, hoping for the best mana-wise, and buying a new item.

They should really buff the travel time and radius on his grenade.
