Disclaimer

This guide is still in development so please don't hate on it for in completion. I'm not sure when I'm going to finish this guide due to school. I' treating this guide as one of the very few last guides I'm going to do and sustain. So I hope you guys like this guide and I'll try to add more content in the future.

Introduction

Hello everyone and welcome to my Hachiman build and guide. In here I'll discuss his item choice and a simple guide about him. This guide will go over the ADC role on Conquest. You could try these builds on other gamemodes, but be careful these might not do well in other gamemodes. So be careful what you build. So let's get into this guide and I'll see you guys later.

Abilities





Passive - Master of Arms
A buff that gives mana regeneration. This passive is really simple to explain. Hitting any enemy with basic attacks gives him more MP5. This buff could stack up to 5 times and the buff lasts for 8s. The buff does get refreshed when you hit a other basic. The MP5 does scale to your level, when level 20 your MP5 for one basic would be 2.6 then increases when for each basic that adds up to 13. To maximize this passive best to get Hastened Katana due to it's passive and the extra attack speed.

Ability 1 - Eagle Eye
A buff that empowers your auto attacks. This ability has a lot for a simple buff. This ability buffs your AA damage scaling with the abilities level. This also could trigger your items with auto attack buffs like Qin's Sais or even crits like Deathbringer. The one thing you have to be careful for is this ability does has fall off damage. So meaning if you hit someone with this ability at a farther range will do less damage than up close. So this ability would be best used as a aggression to rush your enemy down with damage.

Ability 2 - Heavenly Banner
An AoE that deals damage and buffs allies. This ability is not complicated to explain. When cast an AoE will damage enemies upon landing then proceeds with buffing you and allies attack speed. The damage and attack speed buff scales with the abilities level, while the damage does scale as well with your power. This ability does have delay so timing is important for this ability. The best times to cast this ability is for pushing, lane clearing, or destroying towers.

Ability 3 - Iaijutsu
An dash that deals damage in a line and area. This ability has two functions, but not complicated to explain. The first part of the ability is a medium range dash that passes through enemies. The second part is an AoE that damages enemies all in a circle. If the enemy has been by both parts they would be stunned for a short duration. This ability is good in a combo if you start off with Heavenly Banner then immediately follow with Iaijutsu you'll deal decent amount of damage and a potential to do more with Eagle Eye right after it. If performed right this ability could devastating.

Ability 4 - Mounted Archery
A mobility move that damages and slows enemies if hit. This ability is very similar to Guan Yu's ultimate. Upon casting you leap on a horse going moving forward. At the same time you get a aiming reticle that is shape as a large cone. If the enemy has been hit they receive massive amounts of damage and gets a slow. The damage and slow scales with the ability level, but the damage also scales with your power. The nice thing about this ability that you could aim in 360 so no matter what direction your horse is going you could aim in any direction. He also CC immune during the duration of the ultimate. This ability is best used to chase down enemies or trying to escape from a losing fight.

Explaining Items


Warrior Tabi
Grants the player extra movement speed and power.

Always get this item first no matter what build your using.

This item is one of the important and core items for most hunters. While Hachiman is more on AA more power is nice to have for late game. Giving extra movement speed being the most important key stat in the game and the 40 extra power really helps early with his autos in early game.

Jotunn's Wrath
This item grants the player extra power, mana, pen, and CDR.

Get this as a 2nd or 3rd item in the power if you want more power and mana for more aggression early.

While this item is not really crucial on Hachiman being an auto based god, but if you want to build more power this is a nice item to get. The extra pen helps early game if the enemy are rushing defense early allowing you to do reasonable amount of damage. The extra power is also nice allowing to do more scaling on your abilities also helps with your Heavenly Banner and Mounted Archery. early game that allows you to lane clear easier. The extra CDR also helps you to pull off more abilities so boxing situations you have the advantage to able to activate abilities quicker than the enemy.

Shogun's Kusari
This item grants the player extra magical protections, CCR, MP%, attack speed, and CDR

Try to build as your 3rd or 4th item.

This is a uncommon item for hunters in general, but this item could bring positive benefits. Magical protection could be good against bursty mages. The extra MP5 goes along with your passive master at arms. The CCR helps so CC based gods will have a thougher time with their CC. CDR helps in general allowing to pull abilities in a smaller time frame. Now the aura is what's nice with the extra attack speed that you and your allies receives and stacked with Heavenly Banner help shred towers.

The executioner
This item grants the player extra power, attack speed, and physical penetration.

Obtain this item 2nd or 3rd in the attack speed and crit build determining if you want extra attack speed early.

The Executioner is a simple item to explain. This item gives you extra power that is always nice. Attack speed again goes along with him in general. Let me explain the passive just in case you don't know. Every time you hit a basic attack on an enemy a percentage of their physical protections gets reduce allowing to do extra damage. Every basic refreshes or adds a stack on an enemy. The total amount of percentage shred is 36% so if someone had 100 physical protections and you hit them three times, there protection will be reduce to 64 physical protections.

Shifter's Shield
This item grants the player extra protections, and power.

Determines if you want get the protections around mid game or wait till late game, build this item in the power and crit build.

One of the most common items that hunters and warriors pick up for protections and power. This item's has some explanation, but it's not that complicated to explain. If you are above 50% health you'll receive extra power. When you hit below 50% health the power gets swapped for extra protections.

Asi
This item grants the player extra attack speed, lifesteal, and penetration.

Build this as your 4th or 5th item in the attack speed and crit build.

Your guardian angel, that is Asi to hunters. If you run crit or want that extra attack speed then this is where Asi excels. The extra is still nice to replace for having no power what so ever. It's the lifesteal and the passive what counts. It's passive when you hit 35% hp threshold you'll get bonus lifesteal allowing you to heal yourself for a large amount. Don't underestimate the passive it could save your life a lot. For the short cooldown it's on it makes the passive valuable and worth.

Rage
This item grants the player extra power, and crit chance.

Build this as your first crit item in the crit build.

The new and improved Rage. You don't get the crazy crit chance like before like it's old self in a while back. The passive is long and could be complicated to understand to let me simplify it. Every time you get a kill or assist you get a stack that increases your crit chance by 1%. When you get 5 kills or assists except getting 5% you get 10% so the item gets a base crit chance of 30%. The same crit as it old self a while back. Nice indirect reference to one of the best crit items in Season 2.

Deathbringer
This item grants the player extra power, and crit chance

Build this as your second crit item in the crit build.

This item is so easy to explain. So why makes this item so good. Simple, it's passive,
what the passive does is it increases the base crit damage multiplier. Originally crits hit for 200% of your auto attack damage. With this item that number goes to 240%
allowing to do even more crit damage than before. Why is this a late game item though well it's simple, it's price. The 3000 gold price is expensive is focused more in late game.

Qin's Sais
This item grants the player extra power and attackspeed.

Build this as your 4th or 5th item in your attack speed or power build.

This items excels on Hachiman due to works with him in general, and the extra attack speed helps. His passive needs it to get the 5 stacks quickly, and his Eagle Eye needs it to shoot out the arrows much quicker. The bonus AA damage is also nice if boxing a enemy. Hachiman needs this item to give him the extra boost he needs in battle.

Bloodforge
This item grants the player extra power and lifesteal.

Build this as your last item in the attack speed and power build.

This item is really good for two reasons. The massive boost in power, and the passive.
The passive is simple to explain. When you kill someone you get a shield that scales with your level. The shield last for 20s, while the shield is active you'll receive 10%
movement speed bonus. Again this item is late due to the reason of it's price.

Situational Items


Ichaival
Grants the player extra attack speed and physical penetration.

Get this as your second item in early then sell it off later.

Ichaival is one of those items are good till a certain point of the game. How the item works is when you hit an enemy it reduces their physical power by 7 (Max 3 stacks). In return you get 7 power (Max 3 statcks). Remember this is physical power so magical gods have not effect on this passive leaving them perfectly fine. Why do you pick up this item. Is too contend with your enemy ADC having them 21 less power and you 21 extra power meaning that you'll do more damage than them. Making it really useful early game. You do want to get rid of this item around mid game this is where 21 power means nothing especially if the enemy ADC is building stacks like Transcendence.

Silverbranch Bow
Grants the player extra attack speed and physical penetration.

Get this as your second item in early then sell it off later.

Silverbranch Bow is one of those items are good till a certain point of the game. How the item works is when you hit an enemy it reduces their magical power by 7 (Max 3 stacks). In return you get 7 power (Max 3 statcks). Remember this is magical power so physical gods have not effect on this passive leaving them perfectly fine. Why do you pick up this item. Is too contend with your enemy ADC having them 21 less power and you 21 extra power meaning that you'll do more damage than them. Making it really useful early game. You do want to get rid of this item around mid game this is where 21 power means nothing especially if the enemy ADC is building stacks like Book of Thoth.

Mantle of Discord
Grants the player extra protections and CDR.

Get this as your 5th or 6th item.

Mantle of Discord is a good defense item with a great passive. The problem is that it's price, a whopping total of 2900 gold. That's a lot of gold to spend on a defense item. Why do you build this item in the first place it's because of it's passive. When you hit a HP threshold you become CC immune for 1s and stunning all enemies for 1s.
This allows you to escape with some health left. 1s isn't a lot of time so that's the perfect time to pop Iaijutsu or Mounted Archery to get away or change the tide of battle. The true reason to buy this item is to help fight against gods that have burst damage that could shred your health. This item helps you escape with a 30% health left allowing to probably tank one more ability till death.

Spirit Robe
Grants the player extra protections, CDR, and CCR.

Get this as your 3rd or 4th item.

Spirit Robe is that item that sounds great, works great, but doesn't get picked up.
The item base stats are amazing good amount of protections, some CDR, and half of the capped amount of CCR. What makes this item situational is the passive. Hard CC, yeas there is a lot of hard CC in the game, but most of the game you are going to be in duo lane. Not all of the ADC's of the game has a hard CC some might have only soft CC. 15%
damage mitigation is not that bad when do you get hit by hard CC and you're just stuck there, the extra 15% less damage well help to tank all the incoming damage in that next couple of seconds. Except being a punching bag, be a steel wall of defense. That's how this item works.

Conclusion

For your full attack speed, I don't think your build order is the most efficient. I'd go something like this: Warrior Tabi, Asi, The Executioner, Qin's Sais, Odysseus' Bow, situational item. I'd replace Asi with Bloodforge as my last item.

Branmuffin17 (365) | October 3, 2017 5:03pm
I'm not sure (not saying I'm fully against it) that I would recommend Asi 2nd, at least if we're talking a Conquest match. It's acceptable as a 3rd item in a Trans build because Trans + whichever boots provide plenty of power, off-setting the lack of power Asi has (though it does have some flat pen, which is okay).

Especially early-game, I'd concentrate on getting that power up, and in a build focusing on attack speed, I'd probably suggest The Executioner next and delay lifesteal until later, unless you get Devourer's Gauntlet in that 2nd spot. I especially don't like seeing 2 items with 0 power in a build at the same time (even if you replace Asi late).

As such, I'd suggest 2 builds:
Thoughts?

overld1 (18) | October 4, 2017 10:11am
I have to agree with Bran, it's probably not a great idea to put that as your 2nd because you might lose potential power if you pick up a other like The Executioner or Qin's Sais. When I reading the description of Odysseus' Bow I realized that the item could do a lot of damage. I probably put it in when I have the chance. I don't know why I give devourer's guantlet a chance I'll try it out when I have the chance and see how good it is.

This is nice, but needs more item specified information.


Edit: It's also a nice touch that you added in some info for why or how that item corresponds with that ability.

masterricu (12) | September 19, 2017 12:45pm
Hunters in general prefer exe over titans. This even goes for skadi, since you can basic attack and ability the same target. Titans is mostly an assassin item.

Getting atlantas bow early game is a huge loss of dps, not to mention frostbound does the same thing, but with health, a better passive, and overall better.

Rage is better than wind demon now, and using crit without lifesteal is a death sentence. Nemean literally kills yourself.

Overall the standard crit build works for every hunter for the most part right now.

Thanks for the feedback. Glad that you finally came back.

Gulfwulf (81) | September 18, 2017 9:27am
I'd go with Bluestone Pendant instead of Death's Toll since Hachiman isn't really a basic attack hunter in that he has no real attack speed buff outside of his Heavenly Banner.

venomweilder | September 14, 2017 4:36pm
You can't buy katana on him since he is ranged.

Technotoad64 (46) | September 19, 2017 6:11pm
A landlubber's mistake for sure.

Gulfwulf (81) | October 3, 2017 2:41pm
I know you're busy with school, Overld1, but Hachiman cannot buy the Hastened Katana because it's for physical melee gods only.
