Heracles arrived at the Mandemakers Stadion with just one point from their opening three games but they managed to double their season's tally with a determined display.
The visitors got off to a dream start when Willy Overtoom put them in front inside the opening minute but RKC levelled before the break through Florian Jozefzoon.
Neither side could find a winner after the break, meaning RKC failed in their bid to move above FC Twente at the summit.
NEC Nijmegen thrashed nine-man PEC Zwolle 4-0 with Ryan Koolwijk contributing two penalties.
Koolwijk put his side ahead from the spot after 18 minutes and doubled their lead 13 minutes later after a foul by Zwolle goalkeeper Leon ter Wielen which saw him receive a red card.
Joey van der Berg was also dismissed 10 minutes into the second half for collecting two bookings with NEC wasting little time in making it 3-0 through Evander Sno.
And Melvin Platje rounded off an impressive display by the visitors shortly after the hour mark.
Roda JC claimed their first win of the season with a 3-0 defeat of Willem II.
Sanharib Malki scored the opener five minutes before the break and Krisztian Nemeth made it 2-0 five minutes before winless Willem were reduced to 10 men following the sending-off of Jordens Peters.
Adil Ramzi completed the rout nine minutes from the end.
NAC Breda's poor start to the season continued with a 1-1 home draw against FC Utrecht.
The home side, with one point from three games prior to today, went ahead in the seventh minute through Alex Schalk but Alexander Gerndt grabbed an equaliser with 16 minutes to go for mid-table Utrecht.
