Spirit of the elder lizard or iceborn gauntlet? Spirit is a lot cheaper, I usually go spirit stone and boots on first back. Spirit stone got cheaper too and once you get lizard your damage is nothing to sneeze at, but so far I've been getting iceborne first since it allows you to tower dive and catch people, as well as be even more disruptive in teamfights. I go 21 utility as well, think greed is worth it? --- Thank you to all those who serve our country :)
21 Utility makes your jungle more gimp than its worth.
It makes your jungling better in my experience. You're somewhat squishier before you get your items, but having more passive sustain and movespeed for da ganks helps a lot imo --- And then John was a zombie.
But Iceborn builds out of a chain vest, a very powerful item on Hecarim...
It's really your call, whether your ganks need more angles to initiate from or more damage to secure kills. --- A game that promotes slavery and gambling under the illusion of 'friendship' and 'sportsmanship' is automatically an awesome game. - dydt
After buying your Spirit Stone and boots, go Glacial Shroud then Sheen into Fist. After that I buy my boots2 and either a Locket or a SV (I prefer SV on Hecarim but these days AP is rare). Finally, I upgrade to Spirit of the Lizard Elder and I have all the items I really need. 35-40% CDR depending on your masteries and whether you got Locket or SV. --- /|\ http://i48.tinypic.com/2pzcsv7.jpg \|/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vE7x0WLz7SY
After Spirit Stone + Boots buy a raw Giants Belt just to be tankier in the mid game. Then get Sheen ->Frozen Fist. Build the Giants Belt into a Spirit Visage (against AP), Sunfire (against AD) or Warmogs (balanced). --- http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/7388/spectrumf.jpg
