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.
LoL Hecarim players will find him to be a difficult champ to build out properly. You'll find that his build is modified when he is playing against either diversified or specialized team compositions, demonstrating you shouldn't follow the same Hecarim build every game of League of Legends
The best items to include in your champ's build include: Divine Sunderer, Maw of Malmortius, and Death's Dance. Those who added these pieces in their setups had a significantly better win rate than those who went for other builds for Hecarim. Similarly, if you are trying to beat a well-mixed enemy team comp, you should strongly consider getting Hecarim the Precision, and Inspiration runes. In recent games, he won the greatest number of his games when using these runes.
