R > Q > W > E
^ Ability Preference ^
This passive is great. It's what makes Hecarim be able to build more movementspeed things like Phantom Dancer without any major lack in attack damage. And like he ignores unit collision, which is awesome - Free permanent ghost effect (minus the speed)
As said in the spotlight, Hecarim's main source of damage. Since this ability stacks up to 2 stacks which decreases it's cooldown, try have it stacked up before entering f.ex a teamfight. Let's say midgame, your team is pushing the enemy team and it's clearly going to get down soon. Go around some minions and stack it up to 2 before initiating, it'll be worth it, trust me. Maxed first if DPS and second if Tanky.
Spirit of Dread (W)
This ability hasn't really impressed me that much outside of teamfights. However it's okay and brings a little health back and some AOE damage while jungling. In team fights it's great. I max it second if DPS and first if Tanky.
Devastating Charge (E)
Hecarim's utility/burst ability. This ability increases his movementspeed over time and is great both for escaping and initiating. However, when ganking note that this ability knocks them back. That means that if you attempt to gank, try appear behind your enemies and knock them into your teammates, otherwise you will just be doing your enemies a favor. Max this ability last.
Onslaught of Shadows (R)
Hecarim's Ultimate. I really love how they've made this one. Great initiation but also a great escape tool if necessary. With this ability Hecarim can jump through a wall to either chase or escape, or just to get away with some extra speed. Even if you would use it only a range in front of you, or above yourself, the spirit riders of the ultimate will still hit and damage all enemies within the path. However they will NOT be feared - Only the targets within the circle of the ability will be feared. Put a point in this whenever you can (Level 6/11/16)
Good matchs !
