Hecarim FAQs

Q: What are the strengths and weaknesses of Hecarim in LoL?

A: Hecarim's greatest strength is his incredible speed. Over a moderate range, he can catch just about any champion. Yet, comparted to other chasers, like Rammus, he has much less speed. Be careful what you get yourself into. You can easily bite off more than you can handle if you chase into a large group of enemies.

Q: Should I build Hecarim for more damage, tank, or mobility?

A: Hecarim's best build will depend on the particular team composition you are facing. Check out our specific Hecarim rune and item builds for different enemy team compositions, above. That being said, mobility will always benefit Hecarim. If you are going for damage and/or tank, grab some mobility items to make sure you can position well, quickly.
