Hercules's Lore

Smite God Hercules Brave Hercules, a demigod son of Jupiter, born with impossible strength and force of will; for whom no task is insurmountable, no heroic deed unachievable. Yet, Like all of Jupiter’s illegitimate children, Hercules once drew the ire of Juno, and though he is now known as a hero, his greatest achievements might never have been done without Juno’s initial tragic involvement.

She struck Hercules mad, and he slew his own children.

Once recovered, grief stricken, Hercules sought penance for his crimes. An oracle of Jupiter advised he should pledge his service to the king Eurystheus, and so Hercules reluctantly did so. Jealous of the demigod, the king set him to twelve impossible tasks, expecting him to fail at the first, to slay the Nemean Lion and return with its hide.

The Nemean Lion captured women and devoured soldiers. Its fur was so thick no weapon could pierce it, and its claws so sharp, no armor could guard against them. Hercules tracked the lion to its mountain caves and drew it out, firing arrows that shattered against the beast’s impenetrable coat. Agilely, he dodged as the lion leapt to maul him. In the end, Hercules aimed a powerful shot straight into the lion’s roaring maw, a place the powerful fur did not protect, and slew it. Then, using the beasts own claws, he skinned the hide, wearing the mantle proudly as his new armor.

Eurystheus was aghast upon the hero’s return. Immediately the legend of Hercules began to grow. Eleven more labours the confounded king set against him, but time after time, year after year, Hercules performed what could not be done, earning fame, glory, and the peace he so desperately sought.

I've probably had more kills with him than I ever had with Sun Wukong and I've beaten other warriors out 1v1.
He also hasaid pretty dangerous crowd control, better than other warriors. His heal is nerred but still good. It's saved my *** plenty of times

I've said it before somewhere, and I'm gonna say it again. Outside of laying phase, this ****er is a terror. I honestly feel like he's underrated and under appreciated. He had damage. Defense. CC that can disrupt and even kill or lead to a dead target when applied properly. A nice heal that combines well with equipment. I've seen a boulder roll through a team fight that changed everything but the guardians mind about sticking around the team fight.
I don't think people are even trying herc out that much and I damn sure am gonna try to make this character look good. I believe he has potential.

Will Hercules ever be viable?
I heard Weak3n speaking of how people are going to possibly start using him a bit more.

I wanna speak about Hercules and his recent buffs.
I've been playing more Solo and Mid lately.
In solo I've been using Tyr and Guan Yu and I'm seeing this dude a lot more lately outside of Arena now.
Even in ranked which is weird honestly cause Noone was soloing with him.
Is Herc now a good solo laner? I'm seeing successful play with him. Not sure if his opponent was playing wrong or what. But I played a dude who was dealing damage but his only damage item was Frostburg -_-

Curious item combination question because of a recent Arena match as Herc last night.
Hide of the Nemean Lion Breatplate of Valor (I think does 40 dps) Shield of thr Underworld
Is that a good idea? Why the physical build?
They had:
Nemesis Arachne Sun Wukong Hades Medusa
We had Xing Tian so it wasnt too scary a match.
And as i would take a lot of damage im sure that combination would shy em off a bit with all that passive damage and my attacks themselves. Didnt get to try it, but just thought of it. Im at work so i wouldn't be able to try it out until later.
Opinions?
Edit: of course the healing ability.
My bbc coding sucks. Didnt work on some.

Ugh, an ICEN guide would be so terrible. Don't even mention such an atrocity.


I think he did it just to spite you XD

I was thinking something more along the lines of gigantic, inarticulate walls of text with no BBCoding or actual relevance to the Hercules. But I can see that happening too.
