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.
How To Play/Reasoning
With this particular build you are building high attack speed and damage to in crease your ability's dame and basic attack output. I did not build ap because it would take away from the basic attack damage that is important. These are all meant to be here for aggressiveness and high harass against enemies mostly to scare and make yourself look bigger stronger and better. Stay aggressive throughout the game bringing mid ganks and picking up red/blue buffs thruoghout. Every once and again hit the dragon to get money fo build it is extremely important that you have a high gold farm if not you will not finish build.
First buy cloth armour then 5 hp pots then stay out in battle till you have enough to start building Trinity force by getting Zeal, sheen then phage and finally the actual item. Then proceed to building randuins omen picking up heart of gold wardens mail then finishing the item. next move on to maw of malmortius then void staff then infintiy edge and finally the brutalizer. This build is highly effective against rengar, darius and other ad carry builds.
I kept the skill build mostly even throught your leveling because hecarim needs most if not all his skills to gank... Meaning his e for charging in (high damage by running farther) using his q (more damage) and w (sustain/survive ability) and some basic atacks/ignite to finish. Sometimes you reeally need an exhaust to really kill em good to. :P
I choose exhaust and ignite for two main reasons extra damage for when chasing and to slow when chasing. You ask why not ghost/flash mainly because enemies will fear you when you jump at them taking half there health. They will use there flash/ghost and you need to be able to take em out. ^.^ If you have trouble with red buff switch exhaust for smite or ignite.
To sustain this build your gonna have to do some major farming so jump to any friends lane to kill a mob of minions if you need to and be sure to kill red/blue buff and dragon whenever possible to pickup the extra cash and experience. Be sure to use your w whenever you can against minions to stay healthy and kill em fast. To start hit up red buff with a leash from mid and then some basic attacks to boot. Then go kill wraiths then start to lane. when you hit six kill red buff again then on 8 blue buff and 11 dragon. Contenue killing these minions till your invading enemy base.
Make sure to comminucate with your team at all times if you dont you will lose 7/10 times trust me im an alchoholic. :P Tell them when your gonna gank what minions your gonna kill update them on your positioning/plans for attack you need to tell them these thing it will help the whole team not just you!!!
Overall have fun idk know if i was descriptive enough or not be sure to let me know and ill update/change the guide whenever possible. NOW GO KILL SOME MINIONS >:]
