Introduction

Hello!

I just bought Hecarim today, and i must say, he is a very good champion!
i played a bot game with him, and just made my own build, that includes lot of armor and AD, and attack speed! I will also go in-depth info about him, because he is hard to play. ENJOY!

Summoner Spells

Summoner Spells
i always pick Heal, because its very usefull, when you are about to die in a 1v1 fight, and you can help you teammates by healing them, in several situations ;)
i always pick Flash because, when i want to engage (gang) i can just flash through the wall, and Flash is perfect for survival ;)

When jungling

i always pick Heal, because its very usefull, when you are about to die in a 1v1 fight, and you can help you teammates by healing them, in several situations ;)

Smite for jungling, it deals a bunch of true damage to a monster, or minion :)

Items

Items


Starter items


You have 2 different choices here!


Choice 1 (jungle/normal)


Boots of Speed gives you the movement you need from the start ;)


2 Health Potions keeps you alive, in several situations.


Choice 2 (normal/jungle)





Cloth Armor will make it harder to kill you, even though it doesnt give you much armor. ;)


1 Health Potion is enough to survive the whole jungle. :)


Mid-Game Items





Frozen Mallet is definitly a "must have" item. It has a great passive! What the passive does, is it that your basic attacks slows your enemy, that will make it easiere to keep up with them.



Sunfire Cape is also a great item, with a great passive! What the passive does it damages all enemies that are near you.

Quoted:
Keep in mind, that if you walk pass the wolfes, they will attack you!



Late-Game Items





Randuin's Omen is a great, and powerfull item! It has a very nice passive, that is very good against high dps champ like Xin Zhao and Master Yi. Basically, what it does, it slows all enemies in an area.


Guardian Angel is a very very very good item. It has a awesome passive! What it does, is it revives your champion after death! That gives you a chance to get revenge in a teamfight ;)

Other good items





Phantom Dancer is a also a great item, it gives you attack speed, and a bunch of movement speed!


Maw of Malmortius is a good item, if you enemy team, is full of AP champs. It gives you damage, and magic resist.


Warmog's Armor is a very tanky item, that gives you a bunch of health, and it has a great passive! basically what it does, is every minion you kill you get 3 health to you maximum health! :)

Jungling

Jungling


Jungle route




The picture may not be perfect made ^^



1. Wolves

2. Blue Buff

3. Ghasts

4. Red Buff

5. Golems



Jungling Guide


Start off by taking one point at Rampage and kill the wolves, note that every time Rampage hits an enemy, it reduces its cooldown by 1 sec, can be stacked up to 2 times.


After you hit level 2, take one point at Spirit of Dread and walk over to blue buff . Tell one of your teammates to pull it for you, so its a bit easiere to kill.


After you hit level 3, take one point at Devastating Charge and walk over to the ghasts, and kill them, and then just continue. :)

Tips & Tricks





+ Devastating Charge makes it much easiere to escape fights.


+ Onslaught of Shadows can go over walls :D


+Even if Rampages damage is blocked by a spell-shield, Hecarim will still recieve the cooldown reduction stack.


+ Rampage deals half damage to minions.


+ Devastating Charge is not affected by spell-shields in any kind of way.


+ Devastating Charge resets Hecarims swing timer, so he can quickly attack after knocking back an enemy.


+ Devastating Charge is effective againts turrets.
