Summoner Spells Back to Top

Smite and ghost are key on Hecarim. Smite is standard for junglers due to the power of objective control and buffs. Ghost is powerful on Hecarim due to the fact it gives him bonus AD and allow him to position his ult and E better in fights and ganks.

Leveling Q is better now, as I believe killing the blue/red as fast as possible is better then sustaining. Although there are exceptions, such as if you have someone with a shield such as Lee sin.

W 2nd for the sustain, and at level 3 you can choose to level up Q again to farm faster to level 4 or to level up E for a gank. I usually farm, so I get Q usually.

Maxing Q to abuse it's damage on champions, as it's really high starting at rank 3 of the skill.

Maxing W so when the mid game team fights start you will heal absurd amounts of health during fights and in between.

Maxing E last for the utility of the spell for it's cool down and damage

Ult whenever possible..

TIPS TO USE YOUR ABILITIES

When ganking someone, remember to Q first and then auto and then just click next to the champion and not on him. You want Hecarim to be able to hit his Q on the champion, as it does more damage then his auto's.

Use your W when your able to take a lot of damage, or your teams about to deal a lot of damage. Don't just go in a fight and use it cause you initiated, because I see a lot of Hecarims making this mistake and dying when they should of lived.

Don't just "tap" your E in a small fight as your E will do less damage then your auto due to not charging up.

Try to use your Ult in conjunction with your E and ghost. When you ult behind the enemy carry, you can push them back further with it as well as dealing tons of damage.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    STANDARD

Core Items

    After your first initial clear, you should back and get boots, and then work on finishing your jungle item.
    Get this if your middle is doing good and are going to give 2nd blue. If not, buy a phage.
    I find this item way better then Iceborn gauntlet. I had my doubts at first, but the AD, crit, attack speed, this item is the item everypony wants.
    DONT GET THIS UNTIL YOU FINISH YOUR SPIRIT ELDER AND SHEEN. I usually go with ninja tabi, as the lower minion, tower, champion auto's, neutral creep damage is just so good for the cheap cost. I rarely get merc treads unless they have something like a fiddle. Typically if I go merc treads I'll go for a spirit visage next. If you go for merc treads, you need armor, so go for a randins.
    EXAMPLE LATE GAME BUILD (if your team is lacking damage and/or your fed, you build cleaver).
    When you are 6 item'd get this to replace your jungle item. It's pretty redic on hec. Also really good after trinity if you are snow balling.
    TRUE FINAL BUILD really good against split pushing champions.
    Buy this after getting hextech if they are nuke AoE teamfight team and just need to survive.
    Good item to get if you are snow balling instead of spirit visage. Also only get if you are getting constant blue buffs as 30% cdr isn't as good as 40% with hecarim, as it is important for his kit.

Situational Items

    Frozen heart is a great item to get on Hecarim if you need to be more tanky. You will build this in place of your brutalizer.
    I will miss this item on Hecarim forever. I was probably the only Hecarim to build this item and see how good it was on him. What a shame.
    Good 3rd damage item if fed or for 6th item slot. Works well due to already having trinity force so if you crit when you engage = gg
    Good item after trinity if snow balling

Machete 2 pots.

Going back Rangers Trail and boots.

Finish the lizard elder rune to make him clear the higher health creeps later on in the game faster as well as doing more AoE damage with his Q due to the true damage burn it gives.

http://www.lolking.net/guides/list?author=XJ9

Sheen improves Hecarim damage immensely, making him gank with more damage as well as clear faster. I like to build a longsword(s) > brutalizer/sheen as it helps my damage a lot.

Once you finish trinity force, you're damage will maintain high throughout the game, and at this point just start stacking tank items based on what you need.

Frozen heart is usually the next item you buy as you need the mana and the cdr improves his damage output greatly.

Spirit visage/ninja tabi right after for the magic resist/health/cdr which Hecarim will most likely need in 95% of his games.

Dead mans plate op

SITUATIONAL ITEMS

Merc treads only if they have a fiddle.

(I explain my situational in the panels above in "Situational" so lol.

VS

Amumu

Easy

Pretty easy match up. Your Q wrecks his face as well as your W, just gotta really worry about his late game really unless he gets fed early for whatever reason.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Cho'Gath's auto's with his E destroy hecarim throughout the game, and his silence and knock up slow also cripple him. To make it worse, his true damage nuke also gives him a hard time to regain health in fights.

Pretty much avoid fighting this guy at all costs, unless you see a opening where he is really low health.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Medium

Can be easy but can be hard depending on the fiddle player and how well you use your CC. Just gotta make sure not to waste any CC for his drain and you'll beat him.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Very easy to beat, you out damage him and out sustain him in fights and in the jungle.

VS

Lee Sin

Hard

Lee sin is pretty much the most unbalanced champion in the game, that needs a nerf already. He usually just invades your red so tell your support to ward your wraiths at the start of the game.

If you do fight him though, you can beat him as long as you a kite a bit with your Q and wait for your W and there isn't creeps on you.

VS

Malphite

Easy

Farm fest, you won't kill him, he won't kill you.

VS

Maokai

Medium

Pretty much he can't do much to you except just cc you up and slow you with his Q which ruins Hecarim's E. One of Hecarim's biggest weaknesses is slows.

You can kill him easily during the game, but late game don't expect to kill him. Because Hecairm has to be button smashing his Q, his passive will just heal him too much to the point of not dying ever.

VS

Nautilus

Hard

I haven't seen a good naut in a long time, as I'm really the only good naut player right now. But whenever I vs a Hecarim with Naut, I just destroy him due to the cc and slows he has in his kit. The damage over time and shield he has just destroys Hecarim.

Be very careful of a good naut.

VS

Olaf

Medium

Depending on who gets fed, will dictate how hard or easy this match up will be.

VS

Skarner

Easy

Hecarim destroys skarner in all cases as long as it's even. If the skarner get's fed, however... The game is pretty much over.

VS

Warwick

Easy

Very easy, you out damage his heals, just stomp him.

Thanks for viewing! Back to Top

Thanks for viewing my guide on my favorite champion Hecarim! I decided to just finish it after having it on the back burner for quite a while.

I hope it brings many little Hecarim's onto the fields of justice!
