Wait what? A hecarim Jungle guide?
YES THIS IS A HECARIM JUNGLE GUIDE NOT TOP. HECARIM TOP IS BASICALLY DEAD IN THIS JUGGERNAUT META ( ******ed ). Garen fking deals true dmg to the villian , darius can fking heal and deals **** ton of dmg , gangplank is permaban , fiora fking have a build in bansees that blocks everything for 2 secs and morde , well ya.
hecarim jungle is a off meta pick. Yea im aware is bad at this meta ( fu elise , lee sin and nidalee jungle every game ) . But Hecarim is just the perfect champion to carry with from the jungle , u got **** tons of mobitity and damage early game ( u can build tank )and just snowball thru 1 kill .
basically just use movespd quints , cooldown blues , amour pent reds , and amour seals. okay moving on.
THERE R 2 ENTIRE DIFF SET PATHS FOR HECARIM ( u must access the game base on ur team comp and the enemy team comp , wheter u r ahead or behind or if its a even game.
SET PATH 1 ( recommended if enemy team have a tanky lineup and u r playing the peeler for ur team): THis is when the game works out in ur favour do this build if u have a brusier top or tank support and that if u r ahead ( u got like 2 kills with 0 deaths and enemy carries r behind )
ITEMS PURCHASE ORDER > ENCHANTMENT WARRIOR ( BLUE ) > GET A PHAGE > GIANTS BELT > get black cleaver ( enemy prob armour stack )) > Complete randuins > spiirt visage ( heal LOL ) / Sterak guage ( ur team r relying on u to iniate , at which u give up peeling for ur carries and try to disrupt the enemy positioning) > last wisper ( THAT Q DMG shreds tank ) or get titanic hydra ( ON TITATNIC HYDRA E Q AUTO RIP CARRY )
SET PATH 2 ( if u dont trust ur nub team and decides to solo carry this OR U r the only one ahead in ur team ) :
SET ITEM BUILS> CINDERHULK ( blue smite ) > FROZEN HEART ( this is a more tanky build i know , but in the early game to mid game where lots of small skirmishes happen ( hecarim is at his strongest point in the game , he got alot of natural dmg and hes a tank LOL ) > get triforce ( u r strongest until the 30 min mark ( will be explained later ) > Spirit vsage > last wisper/ titanc hydra / sterak guage. ( THIS IS THE 1 MAN SOLO PONY CARRY BUILD , U KEEP TO FREAKING TRASH THE ENEMY EARLY GAME , IF U R FED EARLY ITS ALR GG FOR THE ENEMY DONT DRAG AND CONTINUE STARTING FIGHTS WITH UR TEAM )
HECARIM JUNGLE IS AN EASY WAY TO GET PLAT , LIKE SIMPLE . u can troll around and still deals a ton of dmg.
Diamond above : this is where people actually understand the games and freaking ward every inch of the map , the way to climb in diamond as hecarim is to pritoize lane ganks ( SUPER EASY ON BOT ) . once u have a sucessful gank early and u half like half hp and the enemy laner blew his ss , hover around the map and wait for their return , if ur laner has cc , this is usally a 100 percent kill provided that the enemy jungle didnt come or u didnt be a noob and accidentally tank tower.
Pros / Cons
like every champion , riot has give them strengths and weaknesses ( pfft ).
PROS OF HECARIM JUNGLE
- FAAST CLEARS
- extreme powerful early game dmg even if u r going tank
-Power spike at lv 9 or when u obtain triforce ( this powerspike alone is enough to win u games )
- ONE OF THE BEST LANE GANKING JUNGLERS EVER
- U can gank from anywhere actaully , if u know theres a ward at a bush or something , just e when u know u r at the enemy ward ( the enemy cant react in time and usually will blow ults or ss )
- IF U SNOWBALL EARLY , the game is over for the enemy ff20
- u can actually duel early game pressure junglers like lee sin or elise ( tips on winning the duel next chaoter)
- can gank anytime u got e up
- u can just freaking towerdive a squishy with ur laner if 1) U have ult and cinderhulk and 2) if the enemy laner have no ss
AND YEA FOR THE CONS:
- u get invaded and lose blue buff u r fcked
- ur late game is fking weak ( ur damage severely falls off at the 30 min mark if ur team isnt ahead by a huge amount and u r just a fking meatshield , just ult aoe and stick to carry to protect them )
- U R MANA DEPENDENT ( THE MANA COST INCREASE ON HIS Q MAY LOOK SMALL ON PAPER BUT IS FREAKING ALOT )
- IF U DONT HAVE ULT AND E , U R GONNA GET KITED ( AT THIS POINT JUST PEEL OFF AND CONTINUE PEEL )
- UR LATE GAME IS WEAK NO KIDDING . yea i know i mention this twice but i wan to empahtise its importannce , u must be a greedy b1t*h early just get ur team to quit laning phrase and get objectives , spare no mercy , even if u r like 3/0/3 early u must end , take no pity on the enemy
- ur build is expensive. THIS IS THE MAJOR REASON WHY NO ONE PLAYS HECA JUNGLE , THE JUNGLE RESPAWNS TIMERS R LONG AND U DONT GET ENUF GOLD FOR UR BUILD , MOST OF UR CASH FLOWS COME FROM LANE TAX AND KILLS.
HEcarim can do auto attack anmation cancelling as well . ( the dmg stack up togeter )
alright let me explain:
U know when hecarim attacks a charcter he swings his blade and slash them ya?
when hecarim is doing the blade slash animation when the blade is at the middle of the of the path just press q the 2 dmg will stack which means u get and extra free auto dmg off that. #WORTH.
FOR HIS E im sure u all know , just on e and knock the enemy towards ur team.
but to time it right theres a trik :)
WHEN U GANK U PLAY ON LOCK SCREEN , ONCE U SEE THE ENEMY laner on ur lock screen on e and just run ahead of them and knock them back , this is the best timing to do that.
FOR HECARIM ULTIMATE , u can control the direction in which the fear makes the enemy move.
Positon ur ultimate behind them a little ( dont do it directly on them unless they r low and u need a quick burst of damage ) By putting the ult behind the enemy , they will get feared and walk towards ur team ez.
ALOT ppl said that hecarim jungle is like D tier but hecarim stands out as a unique carry jungler that is hard to kill and do alot of aoe dmg at the same time which sperates him from ***ains junglers like kha zix elise and nid and like brusier junglers like vi . i m currently in diamond 1.
