You can of course swap out items that are situational. If you're being slowed pick up a Winged Blade, if it's a ridiculous amount of healing you can even get a Brawlers Beatstick.

Notes

Anti Heal and cripples prevents Hercules from benefiting from Mitigate Wounds and also disabled him from his driving strike. (Silences work the same way.)

Any mage without an escape Hercules and lock down and swing away at.

Notes

Healers can keep Herc in a fight for a substantial amount of time. Awilix can use her ult Gravity Surge to benefit from Hercules' second ability Earthbreaker.
