Third item

Notes Stacking permanent movement speed and HP5 versus situational movement speed and increased damage output. Charos also gives 20% pen. Charos is better for a tankier enemy team, doom orb for DPS against squishy enemies along with two penetration items. Since He Bo lacks an escape, one or both is necessary.

Relic options

Notes For aggressive players, blink rune is a must. Emblem is a good offensive secondary option. For more defensive gameplay, beads and aegis are both good options. Heavenly wings is a good universal option that can be used offensively to catch up to an enemy to secure a kill or retreat from battle. It also benefits nearby teammates.
