Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi this is my first guide so I wanted to do one for my buddy Hecarim so lets get to it.
Pros / Cons
Pros: Hecarim has the highest base movement speed of any champion which works well with his passive.
Hecarim is not only strong jungler but he's pretty good in lane to.
Hecarims one of those rare champs who can use both ad and ap like twisted fate so hes hard to counter.
Cons: His build is quite pricey so be careful because early game you're going to lack that ump.
he can be hard to master but hey aren't all horse.
and finally he is very weak to slows as that hurts his passive quite a bit
This may seem like an odd group of ruins but hear me out
The movement speed quints work with his passive and already high speed.
The hybrid penetration marks because he doesn't just rely on ad or ap.
ap glyphs because his w and r stack with ap.
and finally attack speed seals so he can hit faster.
Boots of swiftness: these are for helping you chase down the opponent and the also corniced with your passive.
Hexteck Gunblade: this is an essential for any hybrid champion.
Guinsoo Rageblade: again essential for any hybrid champion
Bloodthrister: this gives you a major boost not only to your attacks but also your survivability.
Trinity Force: nuf said.
Nashors Tooth: this gives not only to your spells but to your attack speed as well.

While Hecarim is charging, he gains 150 extra attack range (325 total). His next attack knocks the target back, dealing physical damage based on how far Hecarim has traveled during Devastating Charge's duration.

Onslaught of Shadows

The wave of spectral riders will travel the maximum distance possible in the direction of cast, regardless of where Hecarim himself stops.
Magic damage: 150 / 250 / 350 (+ 100% AP)
Okay this may look bad at first glance but just hear me out okay.
get a point in everything then try to max out devastating charge because of the knock back plus extra damage could go a long way like pushing tem into a tower.
next you should max out rampage because early to mid game its really mana hungry.
get onslaught of shadows at 6 11 and 16 like always.
Hearim works best with teams that have slows or stuns so he can charge into the opponent easy.
He also works well with fiddlesticks the DRAIN the will to fight from the opponents (for the pun )
