General Description

He excels at ganking lanes with his speed and crowd control, and can quickly traverse the map using his devastating ultimate ability, Onslaught of Shadows.

Hecarim Build

Hecarim typically builds a combination of offensive and defensive items. He benefits from items that provide Attack Damage and Ability Haste, such as Trinity Force and Sterak’s Gage. He can also opt for tanky items like Dead Man’s Plate or Spirit Visage to increase his durability.

Hecarim Runes

In the rune tree, Hecarim often runs Conqueror for increased damage output and sustain during extended fights. He can also choose Predator for enhanced ganking potential or Phase Rush for increased mobility and chase potential.


Hecarim synergizes well with laners who have crowd control or strong burst damage, such as Malphite or Orianna. He also pairs well with support champions who can provide additional crowd control and utility, like Nautilus or Thresh.


Hecarim can struggle against champions who can kite him or deny his engage, such as Vayne or Janna. Additionally, champions with high burst damage and crowd control, like Elise or Lissandra, can pose a significant threat to him.


Hecarim is a spectral cavalryman from the Shadow Isles, once a proud warrior who fought for the ruined kingdom of ancient Shurima. He was cursed and bound to the Isles, forever seeking souls to feed upon. Riding his spectral steed, he relentlessly charges into battle, trampling over his enemies with terrifying speed.
