Array ( [extreme] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 17 [display_name] => Cupid [url] => cupid ) [scoreVal] => 1 [notes] => Probably the best counter to Hou Yi in my experience. Cripple, Stun, Sustain, Mesmerize and Attack Speed Steroid. Literally, all of the advantages you could ever need against Hou Yi. Also, [[Flutter]] provides a quick escape from [[Sunbreaker]] or a potential [[Ricochet]]. Cupid's [[Heart Bomb]] and [[Fields Of Love]] can shut Hou Yi down in an instant, and [[Flutter]] allows him an escape or an initiate. Plus, he has great sustain with [[Share The Love]]. This ability kit is just a serious problem for Hou Yi, plain and simple, even if you outclear Cupid - he can easily kill you from 1 or 2 levels behind if he gets a lead on you. Get ready to have an... enjoyable game. ) ) [major] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 95 [display_name] => Chernobog [url] => chernobog ) [scoreVal] => 2 [notes] => ) ) [even] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 45 [display_name] => Ah Muzen Cab [url] => ah-muzen-cab ) [scoreVal] => 3 [notes] => ) ) [minor] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 86 [display_name] => Cernunnos [url] => cernunnos ) [scoreVal] => 4 [notes] => ) ) [tiny] => Array ( [0] => Array ( [god] => Array ( [god_id] => 27 [display_name] => Xbalanque [url] => xbalanque ) [scoreVal] => 5 [notes] => I find Xbalanque to be Hou Yi's easiest match-up. You can leap his [[Poison Darts]] and knock him out of [[Rising Jaguar]] at the very beginning if you time it right, by [[Mark of the Golden Crow]] giving a slight knockback before he is CC immune, leaving him an easy target. There are many combo's and ways to counter Xbalanque as Hou Yi, though keep in mind his autos can reach longer than normal if he uses either [[Branching Bola]] or [[Darkest of Nights]]. ) ) ) 1

Chapter Title

I see Alot of people using Attack Speed Builds for Hou Yi lately, This Build Offers
Powerful plays and Great Survivability and Crits, lots of Crits and Since the rise of Fail-Not I recommended you try it.

I’ll just say what the improved builds should look like: Crit build: Devourer’s Gauntlet, Ninja Tabi, Fail-Not, The Executioner, Deathbringer, Wind Demon, sell boots late for Elixir of Speed and Asi. Qins build: Devourer’s Gauntlet, Ninja Tabi, Odysseus’ Bow The Executioner, Qin’s Sais, Titan’s Bane, sell boots late for Elixir of Speed and Asi.

his is exactly what I build on most hunters, but when would you go for a Qins build. Almost every time I've tested it I don't get the same results as the crit.

Qins you build generally when either: 1. You’re behind and don’t want an expensive crit build. Or 2. You’re against a team with 2 or 3 tanky bruisers building a lot of health in their build. Or 3. You see the enemy solo (and possibly support too) building counter crit items like Nemian Lion and Thorns. Or 4. You want a build that gets good use out of Odysseus’ Bow passive procs for good teamfight damage (As O-Bow passive proc chains between targets). I think those are the reasons you would consider a Qins build (also Geb and Kuzenbo do well against Crit) I think generally though I would just use the Crit build currently.

Ok now I see you updated it and now you have Executioner as 6th item in your crit build? You do realise that is way too late, right?

No no no I think you misunderstood, your build doesen’t have Executioner at all now which is really bad

Why would you get ichaival over O-Bow, when 1. O-Bow is cheaper, 2. O-Bow is much better in teamfights (and uh you said this was a CONQUEST build), 3. Ichaival is only situationally good in 1vs1 scenarios?

Also another bad thing in the second build is you straight up rush executioner after boots/devo's which isn't really necessary.


Not sure why you have heavenly wings listed as a relic...

Pesti, Sov, are items you would never build on Hou Yi. If you need antiheal you get toxic blade or brawlers.

Add Mantle, Magi's cloak and winged blade as situationals.

Thks for feedback, honestly thought I added Mantle of Discord and Magi's Cloak in there and you're right about Odysseus' Bow but The Executioner is in there for early penetration

Yet your Fail-Not crit build has executioner at fourth item which conflicts with your statement.
