Item notes

Power Of Sheen




!
The real power in fact is Sheen's passive which is called Spellblade. After using an ability, your next basic attack deals bonus physical damage equal to your base Attack Damage (2 second cooldown). This combinated with your Rampage (which has 2-4 sec CD) gives u and awesome combination.
What is more...
!


Iceborn Gauntlet' Spellblade:
After using an ability, your next basic attack deals bonus physical damage equal to 125% of your base attack damage to surrounding enemies and creates a field for 2 seconds that slows enemies inside by 30% (2 second cooldown).

This is thes best for Hecarim, this is the tanky of these 3.

Trinity Force's Spellblade:
After using an ability, your next basic attack deals bonus physical damage equal to 150% of your base Attack Damage. 2 second cooldown.

This is if you go for damage. It give u a mix of damages + bonus movement speed

!

Lich Bane's Spellblade:
After using an ability, your next basic attack deals bonus magic damage equal to 50 + 75% of your Ability Power (2 Second Cooldown).

This is not for Hecarim. It's for mages.

Increased Life Steal w Spirit Visage




Increases your healing, regeneration and drain effects on yourself by 20%.

Spirit of Dread

Hecarim surrounds himself with the spirit of dread for 4 seconds, dealing magic damage per second to all enemies within its reach. Additionally, Hecarim is healed for 20% of the damage dealt by any source to enemies within the area. Healing from damage dealt to minions is capped per cast.
  • Spirit of Dread will heal Hecarim by a percentage of the damage targets within the area of effect take from any source, including allied champions, items, and summoner spells.
  • Spirit of Dread has no cast time and does not interrupt Hecarim's movement.
  • Spirit of Dread's heal cap is based on total healing from all minions. This means that Hecarim can only be healed by up to 60/90/120/150/180 regardless of how many minions are affected by the spell.
    The ability's heal does not cap versus enemy champions or neutral monsters.

JUNGEL TIPS




- Use your Smite while your Spirit of Dread is active and you will get a massive Health back.
- Keep your stacks up on your Rampage to kill the monsters faster.
(Make sure to get the killing spree with it.)

- If u dont get a leash on wolves & blue start with Rampage instead of Spirit of Dread.

+Hidden Passive:
Hecarim has no unit collision of his own, and does not block other units' pathing.
Hecarim's large model allows him to completely obscure the click area of a minion, potentially allowing him to deny last-hits. It is possible to cover smaller teammates as well. e.g. Tristana

I find it more uselful than flash, because...
  • ... Hecarim is the Running Horse.
  • ... it gives you 10 sec movement speed buff while flash is just a 0.1 sec port.
  • ... it gives you an awesome AD buff through your passive.

    !


    Use flash if you want to feel safe.

    !



    If you are Jungling always use this for faster clearing time.

    Tips:


Guide Top

Tips

  • Be sure to use Rampage at least once before ending Devastating Charge , since the bonus movement speed gives you more damage.
  • When jungling as Hecarim, be sure to use Smite while Spirit of Dread is active, to gain a small burst of healing.
  • Slow effects significantly reduce Hecarim's damage output if you build him with high movement speed, Cleanse and tenacity help to combat this.
  • Devastating Charge applies on-hit effects and also damages turrets, try to combine it with Sheen to maximize its damage.
  • Onslaught of Shadows can be used for avoiding many on-hit disable
  • Be sure to activate Devastating Charge just before using Onslaught of Shadows whenever possible:

    - Devastating Charge gains bonus damage from the distance traveled during Onslaught of Shadows.
    - Hecarim can use Devastating Charge's knockback immediately after the forced flee from Onslaught of Shadows to knock an enemy even closer to or farther away from his team.
