Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.pngThe best spell in the game since it's existed. The amount of things you can do with this summoner spell is just irreplaceable.

7.pngThe standard ADC bot lane summoner spell. It's a dual lane so being able to heal yourself and your support makes it extremely good. So now that Riot reverted grievous wounds changes, heal's secondary target won't get full hp through ignite. This makes it a little less powerful but it's still the go-to summoner spell for ADCs.

21.png1.png I've been super annoyed by aggro all-in supports like 412.png or 1.png so taking one of these two summoner spells are not too bad. I think 1.png is better later into the game as it allows you to skip 3140.png and go for 3072.png.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

A fairly standard ADC mastery page. 236.png is one of, if not the best champion that utilizes Fervor of Battle. His spells and double shot passive stacks it up very quickly. lucianpassive.png also procs Fervor of Battle twice which gives a significant amount of damage. I would not recommend taking Warlord's Bloodlust since it only heals for 25% on minions for ranged champions. I would only take it if you are against a ton of poke like 51.png/63.png. 12 in Resolve is also not too bad if you are against lane bullies. However, Merciless and Dangerous Game will scale better into mid and late game. 

Lastly, I prefer Oppressor more than Bounty Hunter since it's way more consistent and actually help you win lane. There's really no support without some form of CC if you include 3.png.

Lucian used to be the king of ADC with everything an ADC needs. His range has since been nerfed but no matter how riot tries to keep him down, he still manage to be very strong. He simply has a very well rounded kit, with burst, poke, high dps, and incredible mobility. The only thing Lucian lacks is team utility, but not many ADCs have that anyway.


lucianpassive.png A core part of Lucian's kit; it allows him to output high dps as well as reducing the cooldown of his lucianE.png

lucianQ.png Lucian's main damage spell, it scales fairly well and is an important part of his laning phase. Being able to poke enemies by lining up it up through a minion to hit enemies is very important for winning the laning phase. If you want to maximize damage, try to fit an auto attack, then Q, then double shot for poke. Max this all the time as the flat damage as well as AD ratio does up, in addition to lowering the cooldown.

lucianW.png A less impactful but still useful skill, it offers quite a good amount of movement and helps proc more lucianpassive.png. However, it has a very long animation time and can actually hurt your DPS. Once you are past laning phase, you should look to cancel its animation time by casting W and then immediately casting E. If you time it right, it will cast while you are sliding and shoot out when you finish dashing. You should also look mark someone before using your ult, as it will speed you up as you cull someone down. This is usually maxed last, but you can look to max this second  if you feel very safe.

lucianE.png Imo the funnest skill of Lucian, this is just a great skill overall. After getting CDR, it gives Lucian a lot of mobility and also adds some damage as it procs lucianpassive.png. I like to max this second to have maximum mobility in fights as Lucian is a very squishy and short ranged champion, so positioning is key. 

lucianR.png The iconic skill of Lucian, this can be used for poke before a fight or to finish someone off. Try to use this skill before a fight breaks out on squishy targets since your normal skill rotation will give more DPS. Needless to say, level this whenever possible.

Lucian is a very mechanically intensive and high APM champion. It took me a ton of practice to be able to be able to play him well. There is a lot of animation cancelling and overlapping you need to play to get the hang of.


Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    The standard starting items for an ADC. 3% lifesteal with 2% from masteries gives 5% in total for lane sustain.
    If you have leftover gold after you back. Top laners love to TP bot and fuck your shit up so using pink on lane brushes when you are pushing is quite good. It's also good on blue side for the tribrush.

Core Items

    Example build

Situational Items

3031.png3508.png - The core DPS items.

3158.png3006.png3009.png - Choice of boots depending on enemy and your runes. CDR is usually the way to go for more spell spamming. If you took CDR glyphs then you can opt for attack speed boots or swifties. 

3087.png - highest damage, get this if you plan to go IE third so you get the big AoE crits.

3094.png - get this if you need some sieging and turret killing power. It's also good if you need some range in fights and don't plan to IE third.

3046.png - I usually don't get this unless you really need to survive. Lucian's passive helps proc shiv/cannon a lot faster and is a lot more dps.

3139.png - Scimitar if enemies have CC, less valuable after the AD nerfs and can't cleanse effects anymore like 238.png ult.

3072.png - Good against poke and a little extra effective HP against assassins.

3036.png - against tanks.

3033.png - against self-heals like 36.png , 50.png, or enemies with Warlord's Bloodlust, etc. Now works again vs 16.png, so it's very valuable if your team doesn't only rely on you for damage.

3156.png - if you are getting bursted out by champs like Ori, Ryze, LeBlanc

3022.png - if you need some serious kiting and general tankiness

3026.png - if you are getting 1 shot by physical assassins like Talon or Wukong

VS

Alistar

Medium

He can combo you easily since Lucian has short range. Try to save lucianE.pngfor when he casts headbutt.png on you.

VS

Ashe

Easy

A pretty easy lane, Lucian out-damage Ashe and can easily poke her out with lucianQ.png. Back off if she activates asheQ.png.

VS

Bard

Medium

He has a lot of damage and Lucian's short range makes him quite vulnerable. Try not to get stunned by bardQ.png.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

Blitzcrank can be really cheesy with level 1 invades and stuff. Try to ward entrances and make sure he doesn't hook your jungler or his level 1 camp. In lane, just try to dodge rocketgrab.png with lucianE.png and he shouldn't be able to do too much.

VS

Brand

Medium

His brandfissure.png can be dodged with lucianE.png but if you are close to him, he can more reliably land his brandblaze.png  since you used your mobility. 

VS

Braum

Medium

A very hard support to trade against. His braumE.png is going to block a lot of your damage and his braumR.png can catch you after you use your lucianE.pngon braumQ.png.

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

She significantly out-ranges you and her traps abuses your short range even further. If you try to go aggressive with a lucianE.pngshe can caitlynentrapment.png you and punish you significantly. However, with a good aggressive support, you can all-in her. lucianQ.png poke is quite important in this match-up.

VS

Corki

Medium

Corki is not often bot, but he's fairly easy in early laning phase since you can dodge his phosphorusbomb.pngwith lucianE.png. However, when he hits his 3078.png power point, he will out-damage you unless you are ahead in lane. 

VS

Draven

Hard

One of the hardest ADC matchups for Lucian. He does an absurd amount of damage and will run over you if you try to dash in. lucianQ.png poke is also not very helpful since most Dravens take Warlord's Bloodlust.

VS

Ezreal

Easy

VS

Janna

Medium

Her eyeofthestorm.png can make it very oppressive to trade against. Her reapthewhirlwind.png will also disengage you as well as heal a great amount of health. Try to trade when her shield is down and interrupt her ult.

VS

Jhin

Medium

VS

Jinx

Easy

VS

Kalista

Medium

VS

Karma

Medium

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Kog is really weak before he gets an item. If you have a BF sword while he has pickaxe + whatever you can really abuse the lane. However, Kog will be much better than you mid to late game if he isn't very behind in lane.

VS

Leona

Easy

VS

Lulu

Medium

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

VS

Morgana

Easy

Morg is actually kind of a weak support right now. If she hits Qs she can do well but if not then she is pretty useless. 40.png pretty much outclasses her. In lane, just dodge her binding with your dash and be careful of her ult since Lucian has very short range and thus is a bit harder to escape it.

VS

Nami

Medium

VS

Nautilus

Medium

VS

Sivir

Medium

VS

Sona

Medium

VS

Soraka

Hard

Just a broken champion right now. If you don't kill her she just heals everyone up, but if you go for her, she get's saved by 7.png while her ADC wails on you.

VS

Tahm Kench

Easy

VS

Taric

Easy

VS

Thresh

Hard

VS

Tristana

Medium

Lucian wins pre-6 but Tristana has a very strong level 6 all in, so be careful.

VS

Trundle

Easy

VS

Twitch

Easy

VS

Varus

Medium

VS

Vayne

Medium

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

VS

Zilean

Easy

Really annoying to play against but dodge his bombs and you'll be fine.

VS

Zyra

Hard

A lot of range, CC, poke, and disengage. It's really hard to play against 143.png/51.png. However, a 412.png or 53.png can wreck her if a hook lands.

Notes on matchups Back to Top

A lot of people like to look at ADC matchups in a 1v1 sense, but supports play a significantly more important role in the laning phase. For example, Caitlyn is a bad matchup for Lucian on paper, but if you have a good support pairing, you can still win lane just fine. I would say that supports do about 65% of the work in lane.
