Items

As you see in the builds i gave i am not a big fan of crit because i think it limits you too much because you can not kill tanks well.
I prefer the first two builds because i am not the biggest ichaival fan. The reason for that is if you lane opponent avoids fighting you your build gets delayed in terms of getting teamfight items or pen just for ichaival which is not worth in my opinion if you do not fight in lane.
I think odysseus bow might be the second best hunter item after odysseus bow right now so i always get it.

Skills

For skills you level your 1 first because it is your waveclear. After that maxing the 2 increases your damage and boxing potential the most.
I would max the 2 before putting more points into your ult because you gain a damage boost not just when your ult is up and the 2 also increases the damage your ult does.(only exception is if you already teamfight a lot and feel like you lose out on a lot of damage your ult could do)

Pros / Cons

Pros:
-good fighting potential in lane
-good at killing tanks
-big teamfight ult that can zone and cut off fights well


Cons:
-bad clear earlygame makes fighting hard when you get outcleared
-no attack speed steriod forces you to build a lot of attack speed (not that bad currently because the meta favours a lot of high attack speed items)
-not the best lategame compared to hypercarries such as Freya or Xbal

Summary

Hou yi is an aggressive god in lane. You can take on almost any god in boxing fights and have a lot of kill potential.
He is really good at killing tanks because of his 2.
For playstyle i would play aggressive in the laning phase and in teamfights just hit whatever is in front of you. If you get shots on their backline perfect. If not you just kill their tanks and win the fight that way.
He is overall a mid tier hunter right now but you can make him work and if you get ahead he is really scary.
The buff to his ult gives him a lot of potential to reposition himself while using it to get a stun or even a double bounce off which should win you every 1v1 fight.

"As you see in the builds i gave i am not a big fan of crit because i think it limits you too much because you can not kill tanks well." - You know you could always get rage at some point in the build, and sell boots for deathbringer. e.g.: Warrior Tabi, Devourer's Gauntlet, Rage, The Executioner, Qin's Sais, Titan's Bane.

you could do that yes but it takes away from your capability to kill the frontline in the way that you have less attack speed so you get less qins procs and i think odysseus bow is too strong to not build it.
i dont think the build is bad because two crits on a backline target can win a fight but i think consistent and reliable damage output are better than the gamble that crit is.

I wouldn't recommend O-Bow as third item, specially when you don't have enough power to make its passive worth.

it even gets build that way in spl on other hunters and also on hou yi the item is crazy powerfull even without a lot of power 2300 gold for 40attack speed and the passive also has a base damage value. it does a lot even in third spot.

Yes it's built third in Spl, but can you explain why?
