Depends really on the enemy comp and if you are actually getting kills or not. Machete and 5 pots to start. Next item is usually boots---->Pick axe(If doing well) or a defensive Item, either Negatron cloak or Chain Vest.
Finish building lvl 2 Boots (Merc if enemy team is heavy CC, Tabi if Heavy AD or Swiftness if neither) Spirit of the Elder Lizard, Spirit Visage and Frozen Gauntlet. Afterwards your last two items should be Warmogs and Bulwark (If Support is already building one, build a Locket of the Iron Solari or a Shurelya's Reverie)
i usually go merc treads, IBG, SV, Elder lizard, Randuins and situational, usually a ravenous hydra and homeguard
gives me max cdr, tankyness, and some good dmg
i build it in machete 5 pots- boots & stone, sheen, upgrade boots, work to IBG , get SV, get elder lizard, then if i need more tank get randuins or like a warmogs. if more dmg get something like a ravenous hydra or a gunblade
Newer or lower elo players will tell you to build trinity force or elder lizard. These are bad ideas.
Hecarim and most needs Sheen. That's it. Everything else is tank items and cdr. Hecarim needs to be ablento keep W up full time and spam Q. That's it. Iceborn Gauntlets are perfect.
He gets max CDR with SV and Icefist, not to mention that Lizard procs on everything Hec does, team wide truedamage dot while he's rampaging everything and not dying is hec 101.
SV and IBg only give 30% CDR, SotEL is pretty decent on him now that it gives CDR, allows you to get that 40% that's so good for Hec. Saying that the elder lizard upgrade is a bad idea is dumb, specially with its upcoming buffs.
