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.
League of Legends Hecarim players may find him to be a difficult champion to build out properly. You will notice that his build changes when he is playing against either well-rounded or highly focused team comps, showing you should not select the same Hecarim build every single game of League of Legends
The most important items to incorporate into your champ's build include: Duskblade of Draktharr, Ravenous Hydra, and Spear Of Shojin. Those who included these items in their kits had a significantly better winrate than those who worked towards other Hecarim builds. Likewise, if you are playing a well-mixed enemy team arrangement, you should really consider grabbing him the Sorcery, and Inspiration runes. In recent games, he won the greatest number of his matches when equipped with these runes.
