Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Is an essential Summoner Spell on almost every champion in the game because, it can be used to escape many circumstances where you position incorrectly or aggressively to secure a kill, and as an ADC this is a great asset to Lucian's kit. Another use for flash can be re-positioning when you use lucianr.png 

7.png Is a great Summoner Spell in a duo lane because, it can be used to save yourself or your laning partner if you mess up a trade and it is the summoner spell you want to take 98 percent of the time.

1.png Cleanse is a situational Summoner Spell when your facing a team with a lot of CC and/or if you are laning against a 25.png

Masteries Back to Top

236.png stacks Frevor Of Battle faster than most other ADC's because of lucianpassive.png which makes his auto attack weaving combos hurt much more than they already do. This is why Frevor Of Battle is the better keystone in most situations on Lucian. However, Warlords Bloodlust is a good option if you go the 3508.png build path because, you wont have Lifesteal until later on into the game. Aside from the keystones any other changes on the mastery page are unarguably worse and aren't worth running over these.

lucianpassive.png After using an ability, Lucian's next basic attack within 3 seconds shoots twice, dealing 40/50/60% AD physical damage on the second shot, increased to 100% against minions, which also applies on-hit effects and can critically strike(critical strike damage is halved against champions and monsters). If Lucian's primary target is killed before the second shot can go off he automatically shoots another enemy. This is what makes Frevor Of Battle such a deadly keystone on Lucian, each shot stacks Frevor which increases your damage a lot. AFTER EVERY ABILITY YOU MUST AUTO ATTACK: not AA after an ability is a waste of so much damage and is a common mistake on bad Lucian's.

lucianq.png ACTIVE: After a 0.4-0.25(based on level) seconds delay, Lucian fires a laser in the direction of the target enemy, dealing physical damage to all enemies in a line. 
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 80/115/150/185/220 (+ 60/70/80/90/100% bonus AD)
This is your main harass/poke tool during the lane the base range is 500 but is increased to 900 when shot through a minion which makes it great for farming and trading, which is a problem some ADC's have an issue with. Use your Q very frequently in the lane faze as landing them consistently can land you some easy kills.


lucianw.png ACTIVE: After a 0.25 seconds delay, Lucian fires a shot that explodes in a cross pattern upon hitting an enemy or reaching the end of its path, dealing magic damage, marking enemies hit for 6 seconds and granting sight of them for the same duration. Lucian gains bonus movement speed for 1 second if he or allied champions damage a marked target with basic attacks or abilities. 
MAGIC DAMAGE: 60/100/140/180/220(+ 90% AP)
BONUS MOVEMENT SPEED: 60/65/70/75/80
This is basically Lucian's most useless ability but it can be used in a combo with your luciane.png to chase down champions that are really far away. The main use of this ability is to proc your passive in most scenarios which adds a lot of AA damage in your combo.

luciane.png ACTIVE: Lucian dashes a short distance. (Range 425)
Relentless Pursuit's cooldown is reduced by 1 second (2 against enemy champions) for each lucianpassive.png shot landed.
Relentless Pursuit is an AA reset. This is a very useful tool to Lucian's kit as it has many uses and incredible out play potential. You can use this to escape ganks, dodge essential skill shots like rocketgrab.png or threshq.png  and it is also and AA reset which allows you to have a strong level 2 combo which is AA+luciane.png+lucianpassive.png+lucianq.png with this combo you can pretty much out trade any ADC in the game if done properly.

lucianr.png ACTIVE: Lucian fires shots in the target direction for 3 seconds, dealing physical damage to the first enemy they collide with (damage is quadrupled against enemy minions).  While using The Culling, Lucian cannot use basic attacks or damaging abilities, and can only be interrupted by crowd control that inhibits his ability to use basic attacks, but is ghosted, can move freely, and can activate luciane.png 
The Culling can be reactivated to end its effects prematurely.

This is a very useful ability which can be used in many ways, you can use it to clear waves if needed because it does 400% more damage to minions, it can be used to snipe fleeing enemies and it can be used to output damage in a teamfight from a safe distance without putting yourself in danger.

Lucian Combos:

The first very basic combo is simply lucianq.png through a minion to harass your opponent from a safe distance.
AA+luciane.png+lucianpassive.png+lucianq.pnglucianpassive.png is a good Level 2 trade combo which can basically out trade every other AD if executed properly.

luciane.png+lucianpassive.png+lucianq.png+lucianpassive.png+luciane.png+lucianpassive.png is Lucian's bread and butter combo this can be used to deal a ridiculous amount of damage in a very short time and if you time the luciane.png you can dodge skill shots and make fancy plays.

luciane.png+lucianpassive.png+lucianq.png+lucianpassive.png+luciane.png+lucianpassive.png +lucianr.png same as the previous combo except more all-in style and added the ultimate to make sure no one is escaping.

lucianw.png+lucianpassive.png+luciane.png+lucianpassive.png+luciane.png this is not a complete combo, its just the concept which you can build on depending on your situation. This is a hard combo to pull off because it requires you to luciane.png while the autos from your lucianw.png passive are still in mid air so you get the CDR part of Lucian's luciane.png passive which allows you to essentially dash twice in a row.



Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start, provides good early stats.
    I wouldn't recommend this in most scenarios but it can be really good in tough lanes where Lucian gets bullied and I would recommend 18/0/12 if you decide to go this start.

Core Items

    You have 2 boot choices I go ionian boots 90 percent of the time. Only go Tabi's if you must and there is a fed AD.
    I would recommend this if you get bullied out of lane early and need to salvage the lane.
    These are your core items this build gives you a strong mid game presence and still has crit to make it easier to carry late game fights. rush BORK-BC-PD-IE

Situational Items

    LDR as last item if need armor shred, can replace PD with RFC depending on personal preference, Triforce instead of black cleaver if very ahead early, Maw if they have a fed Mage.
3153.png After it got buffed Blade Of The Ruined King a great item to rush on 236.png because of the 8% of the targets current health AD damage effect, the active is great in all-ins, the life steal gives great lane sustain which makes going Warlords meaningless unless you go the 3508.png build path. This item also allows a good early-mid game presence that is non-existent with the Essence Reaver unless insanely ahead.

3071.png Despite the changes to Black Cleaver it still synergises well with Lucian's kit and the armor reduction is good enough to make up for the AD reduction in one of the recent patches Lucian can also stack the armor reduction very fast due to lucianpassive.png or lucianr.png depending on the situation. This item also helps 236.png have a good mid game and with the BORK he can obliterate any squishy target.

3046.png Phantom dancer is a solid option to get some more Attack Speed and Crit to carry late game fights and not make the build only focused towards the early and mid game but to make a well rounded item build. This helps Lucian in  skirmishes/duels and the extra attack speed makes Lucian's combos really fluid. This can be replaced with 3094.png depending on personal preference and the circumstance of your specific game.

3031.png This provides a huge amount of damage when paired with Phantom Dancer or RFC because of the 50% increased Critical Strike damage from its passive. The 70 flat AD also makes this a really good item suited for glass cannon squishies like 236.png

3158.png This is the best option for boots in 98 percent of the circumstances because its synergy withluciane.png allows you to deal so much more damage and makes combos a hell of a lot easier.

3047.png When there is a fed Rengar or Zed or some other AD Assassin fed on the other team this can be a viable option.

VS

Ashe

Medium

This depends on the skill of the Ashe player, Ashe is slowly coming back into the meta after being weak for a while. When Ashe is in meta she can give Lucian a hard time with her perma-slow but other than that Ashe is pretty simple assuming you are the better ADC 

VS

Bard

Easy

This matchup can is pretty easy, you should dodge his Q with your E but his auto harass is really good early on so i would keep my distance and would communicate with my support to only engage when he's blown a few cooldowns.

VS

Blitzcrank

Easy

Dodge his hook with your E make sure you don't get predicted tho, now that he has wasted his hook i would engage with my support and destroy them. Positioning is key if you have that down this is an easy lane. 

VS

Braum

Hard

Braum with the new keystone is pretty good in the current meta, he blocks your ultimate with his shield and provides good CC and excellent peel so I would just farm this lane out and not get caught by the braum ulti or stun.

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

Lucian can win this lane if he plays really well but if the ADC's are of equal skill level Cait has the advantage due to her 650 auto attack range she can kite you and take advantageous trades and can bully the hell out of you. Play this lane safe.

VS

Corki

Easy

Hes pretty trash right now after his recent nerfs but he wasn't really relevant in the bot lane imo he belongs mid. His damage is underwhelming and his skills are really easy to dodge this is basically a free lane.

VS

Draven

Hard

You probably wont win this lane, unless your opponents are apes. Draven out damages you at every stage of the game. He is a lane bully and Lucian cant do anything about it. I would ward and stick around my tower.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

This is a pretty funny lane as both of you will have one goal and that is to land a Q. You will try to position yourself to line up a Q through the minions and ezreal will be positioning to poke you with his Q around the minions too. The better dancer will win as this is a dance battle. Pure Skill Matchup 

VS

Jhin

Medium

His damage output is really good with the 3508.png build and his 4th shot can be tough to deal with. He can be exploited tho because of his 4 shot system I would look to trade when he's reloading. He is also very squishy and exposed to ganks and blitz crank and thresh laning partners can be really good to ruin his day. Skill Matchup.

VS

Jinx

Medium

The lane phase Jinx poses no threats dodge her jinxw.png with yourluciane.png and gap close to trade which you should comfortably win. The main issue is that jinx scales really well and can demolish the whole team if not being taken care of early.

VS

Kalista

Hard

When Kalista is meta it can be an absolute pain in the ass to lane against. her damage output is insane her ultimate can setup easy kills and its overall really frustrating. You can still win lane however with an all-in type of support like 412.png

VS

Lulu

Hard

Especially when she is paired up with a kog maw lulu's sustain is insane wait for her shield to be down before making trades and make sure she blows lulur.png before you all in

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Just farm trust me his ultimate and W+E harass is too much.

VS

Miss Fortune

Easy

When she isn't meta and obliterating everyone's health bar with missfortunebullettime.png she's actually a worse version of jhin. A squishy high damage AD but in most cases you can out damage her. Poke with Q and all in when its advantageous and you will win the lane.

VS

Nami

Medium

Dodge her bubble and try to avoid her namiw.png harass. Try to survive the lane phase because she wont be able to do much in teamfights.

VS

Nautilus

Hard

His whole kit is frustrating to deal with, he gets CC from his AA's he has a free shield an AOE knockup. Just don't get caught out alone or your gonna be lucky to even survive with 4.png

VS

Sivir

Easy

The Easiest matchup you can face as Lucian, no mobility other than her ult and free Q's because she wont be able to react fast enough to your Q. Just bully the hell out of her in lane and its a free lane.

VS

Sona

Medium

Early harass is good I would ask my support to play an all in type of support or a disruption so her sonar.png is negated. Depends on your support and harass management tbh.

VS

Thresh

Medium

Try to dodge his Q with your E but if you get caught he has more than enough in his kit to lock you down and setup an easy kill for their adc. Depends on the thresh's skill level and your own.

VS

Varus

Medium

VS

Vayne

Medium
