Introduction to Hecarim
I would like to say that this is only my second build so if you have any suggestions please leave a comment below.
Hecarim Champion Spotlight: I advise you watch this video before even buying Hecarim. But to me he's a very good champion.
Ghost: I naturally chose ghost in all my builds because it gives a bonus to movement speed which adds attack damage.
Smite: Obviously if your jungling you need this and if your not then you don't
Exhaust: the reason I chose this ability is it helps you in the late game to land blows and keep enemies from running away better (obviously you can catch up I know but it is also helpful to use before Onslaught of Shadows, during rampage and/or Spirit of Dread, and after devastating charge.)
Teleport: I understand that you have increased movement speed but to gank all the way across the map you would want to get there ASAP so you would use teleport pick up some kills then run away and recall or you could rush the lane next to you from the side then teleport back to your lane to escape or pick off more enemies.
Ignite: It provides extra damage, I like it.
Heal: I know its noobish but you have little health and, unless you play my tank build, you may need a little extra health.
Cleanse: Easy, to remove all spells and crowd control effects, may be helpful in a team fight or if your ambushed.
Also, Hecarim's ultimate, Onslaught of Shadows, makes all enemies hit by it run away from Hecarim for a few seconds. this is very useful when you want to push an enemy/enemies back toward your team and remember to deal as much damage as possible with this ability be sure to have your ground smash also hit the enemy.
Also I have a youtube channel and want to post my lol gameplay videos to it so if you guys know of a screen recorder thats free or cheap with good or even HD quality for it please put the link in the comments or send it to me.
My youtube channel is called DaSonorous.
