Hecarim has a bunch of skins to choose from. So, let’s find out which ones are worth your money.

Hecarim, The Shadow of War, released in 2012, is one of the oldest champions in League of Legends. Hailing from the Shadow Isles, Hecarim is a spectral fusion of man and beast, cursed to ride down the souls of the living for all eternity.

In-game, Hecarim is a champion with excellent mobility and the ability to do substantial damage to multiple enemies. Hecarim’s abilities allow him to charge into combat and decimate opposing teams quickly. Hecarim also has a powerful kit for initiating fights and chasing down enemies in addition to his damage-dealing abilities.

In terms of roles, Hecarim is primarily a Jungler. Thanks to his kit, he can make use of his mobility to quickly clear camps and gank lanes. He can also be played as a top lane champion, where his sustain and damage potential make him a formidable duelist.

Having said that, Hecarim is now one of the meta’s best champions. So, it may be a good moment to take him up.

11. Blood Knight Hecarim

  • Release Date: April 17, 2012
  • Price: 975 RP
  • Chroma: None

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model

Blood Knight Hecarim is definitely Hecarim’s worst skin. The skin offers no additional effects other than a new model. But, sadly, the new model is very ugly looking. Moreover, the skin cost 975 RP, which is a lot considering the caliber of the skin.

If you are thinking of buying a Hecarim, stay away from Blood Knight Hecarim.

10. Worldbreaker Hecarim

  • Price: 750 RP
  • Chroma: None

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model

The Worldbreaker skinline is probably one of the most disappointing skin line Riot ever created. And Worldbreaker Hecarim is no exception. The skin is pretty bland, with no additional effects or animations. The only good thing about the skin is it costs 750RP.

9. Reaper Hecarim

  • Chroma: None

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model

Reaper Hecarim is thematically a great match for Hecarim. However, the skin suffers from issues the older skins have; it does not have much in terms of effects and animations. That being said, the skin has a fantastic model.

8. Lancer Zero Hecarim

  • Release Date: August 16, 2017

  • Chroma: None

Before we dive deeper into the skin, let us look at the skin’s features first.

  • New Model
  • New Animations
  • New Recall Animation
  • New Sound Effects
  • New Visual Effects

Lancer Zero Hecarim is one of the first Mythic skins Riot ever released. It’s a mecha-themed skin with some great visual works and animations.

The problem with the skin is the lance. All the other skins usually have Hecarim holding a halberd. It can be used both as a thrusting weapon and a slashing weapon. But, in this skin, the Hecarim uses a lance, which is primarily a thrusting weapon, and seeing him use it as a slashing weapon feels very awkward and turns off many people.

7. Headless Hecarim

For a skin released in 2012, Headless Hecarim is a very solid skin. It has good sound and visual effects and models. The skin also costs only 975 RP.

Elderwood Hecarim is aesthetically one of Hecarim’s best skins. The skin has a very occult feel to it, like some sort of forest spirit roaming around the forest and protecting it. Plus, thematically, the skin fits Hecarim as a champion.

High Noon Hecarim is probably the best Hecarim skin right now. One of the biggest reasons for it is because of its smoothness. The skin feels really fantastic to play with and the transition between abilities feels very fluid. The skin also has one of the best SFX/VFX out of all the skins.

A solid buy if you are looking to get a Hecarim skin.
