Summoner Spells Back to Top

14.png
Ignite 

Better early game kill potential, better odds in a 1v2

7.png
Heal

Better for 2v2s with your Jungler, and for extended engages or 1v1's in lane since you can also use the movement speed to dodge skillshots or get in range to land more lucianr.png shots
4.png
Flash

Flash is standard on most champion, Lucian is no exception. Immediate repositioning for Aggressive and Defensive plays.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

FEROCITY179.png

5/5 6111.png - More free attack speed, more useful than the bonus ability damage since you will get far more auto attacks off than abilities.
1/1 6121.png - Even more damage on an initial auto attack, procing multiple times in lane and the damage will quickly add up.
1/5 6131.png - Gives you a small amount of life steal is better than having all 5 points in 6134.png
4/5 6134.png - Free AD and AP, Lucian first item is usually 3153.png into 3006.png so getting some AD per level works nice with this coincidentally. 
1/1 6142.png - Deal more damage, and take more damage, but you deal more extra damage than you take. 
5/5 6151.png - % Armor pen isn't as effective against low armor targets, but will let you deal with tanks easier in the early game without any Armor pen item.
1/1 6162.png - Stacking auto attack damage, Lucian can build up Fervor faster than most Ranged champions because of his passive lucianpassive.png and makes good use of it since his abilities and entire kit revolves around him moving, casting abilities, and auto attacking in between both.

RESOLVE

179.png

5/5 6211.png - Free health regen no hugely impactful but it does give you more health than you would otherwise have throughout a laning phase
1/1 6223.png - Take less damage from auto attacks 
5/5 6232.png - +50 Health level 1 will help make up for the fact you run Armor in seals in runes instead of Scaling Health.
1/1 6243.png - Lets you tank more when going in for trades very aggressive use of a defensive mastery.

lucianpassive.png Passive

  • Every time Lucian cast an ability his next auto attack will shoot a 2nd shot that does slightly less damage, but counts as an auto attack.

lucianq.png Piercing Light

  • Targeted ability, lucian shoots a lazer in a line
  • Can be cast on minions to hit enemies behind them.

lucianw.png Ardent Blaze

  • Fires a cross shaped blast, damaging all enemies hit in the blast zone, enemies hit are marked and if Lucian auto attacks them he gets a small movement speed boost.
  • Can buffer W lucianw.png with E luciane.png

luciane.png Relentless Pursuit 

  • Lucian dashes forward

lucianr.png The Culling

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

Starting Items


1055.png2003.png3340.png Standard start, lets you heal, a small health boost, and a bit of AD great for trading and taking some damage than healing.

1054.png2003.png3340.png A different playstyle, Doran's Shield is a better item against Mid laners than can hold their own and trade against Lucian such as (268.png112.png7.png) and sustain their damage until first back when you can get 1053.png and sustain their damage with trades.


CORE BUILD

3153.png3006.png3071.png3087.png3031.png3033.png


Early items help you get onto enemies and stay on them, after first 3 items is just additional damage that will scale perfectly during all stages of the game.

3153.png Blade gives you early sustain in 1053.png and good utility with 3144.png, and you get great value out of 1043.png with Lucian's Passive lucianpassive.png the active of BORK lets you slow enimies which puts most control mages with no gap closer in a terriable spot.
3006.png Standard for ADCs Lucian is no exception you could swap out for defensive boots (3047.png3111.png) but you lose out of a lot of damage throughout the entire game.
3071.png Black Cleaver is everything Lucian wants during the Mid Game, Health gives you durability which works very well when battling Mid laners, and utility of getting extra movement speed is basically required for lucian to be able to chase down or kite during fights.
3087.png Extra wave clear which is very handy if behind, and extra burst when ahead, more attack speed and small amount of crit adds a lot to your DPS.
3031.png Once completed gives you TONs of damage when you crit.
3033.png Healing reduction and % Armor pen. 3036.png Also works well only get this if you don't need the healing reduction.

VS

Annie

Hard
moltenshield.png damaged lucian a ton if you proc all of your lucianpassive.png passive procs by using all abilties, and Annie can kill Lucian from very high health with 14.png and a full combo

Buy 1033.png 

VS

Galio

Easy

Lucian can poke Galio all the time since he is melee and has no shield


main thing you have to do is dodge his galioq.png 
Any time Galio goes for a CS damage him with a combo such as 

Auto Attack > lucianq.png > Auto > luciane.png > Auto > move backwards

and you will quickly whittle him down in lane.

VS

Karma

Easy

It's easy to dodge Karma's Q karmaq.png by moving around minions, but not standing to close to them since the blast damages slightly past the minions hit.


Karma is very short range and Lucian can punish her and quickly burst her before she can even get 1 ability out. 

Teamfights is the only thing Karma can have over you, try to drag her into a lane and 1v1 her.

VS

Kassadin

Easy

Melee Kassadin has to take a ton of punishment form lucain when trying to CS levels 1-5, look to get as much damage on him as possible if he every moves into range of you.


As long as you can manipulate his movement and not take tons of damage from minions and Kassadin's Q nulllance.png you will delay Kassadin's power spike 

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Early laning phase is nullified since Malzahar will constantly be spamming spells on the wave, try to push in and roam get a small gank for damage or for a kill then quickly recall and get back to lane.


After buying 3153.png buy 3140.png to counter malzaharr.png 

Don't stand in the minion wave or you will get hit by malzahare.png

VS

Orianna

Medium

Orianna neutralizes most matchups, Lucian is no different, she can clear waves easily and can poke you with orianaizunacommand.png orianadissonancecommand.png since you are so short range, so save your dash in case she tries to ULT orianadetonatecommand.png 





VS

Syndra

Medium

This is a real skill matchup, either side can win.


Lucian's advantage over Syndra is levels 1- 4 before first recall, you can take very aggressive trades and shit can only retaliate with a Q auto attack.

Once Syndra is 6, if you didn't run heal you have to get a really good ULT onto her before dashing in to finish her off.

Try to get your jungle to assist, and jungler and easily nullify Syndra's strengths.

VS

Twisted Fate

Hard

Twisted Fate has very good itemization into Lucian, and can punish him hard if you dash in luciane.png to trade, with pickacard.png 


After level 6 leaves you in a lame lane position where you can't really punish TF until he ULTs into another lane if you play up to much you will be ganked.

Early Game Back to Top

Lucian is a very strong laner, and can abuse most mid laners with his auto attacks and abilities lucianq.pngluciane.png and can over power many Mid laners levels 1-5 then come to lane after first recall with an item advantage and push the lead even further.


Main concerns you have to avoid early is a cheese level 2 gank, the enemy Jungler no matter what champion probably has potential to start Red buff then gank Mid, to avoid this ward the bush above Red buff, or play to the side opposite of it early.

You will also most likely have the attention of the enemy jungler and by dragging them to or around your lane you do your team a huge service, so long as they don't kill or give you an disadvantage, an enemy jungler being near makes your ability to secure a kill on the enemy mid laner riskier, and therefore has to be a lot more calculated.

If this happens you should ping your jungler to make some play on the map from it, if your jungler is AFK farming camps while this is happening than it is a loss.

Mid Game Back to Top

Mid game starts when the first tower goes down, or when champions start roaming out of their own lanes. It's very important to identify when this is happening and react / expect the enemies map movements. If don't expect a rotation or even know it's happening the enemy will show up in your lane and you will either be ganked, or 3-4 seiged. 


When you know say the enemy bot lane took a tower and just recalled you can play around the idea of their support / AD moving to the mid lane and play back around the time it would take them to get there.

Around the Mid game you should have a completed 3153.png & 3006.png and be building into 3071.png during this time you can swap with a side lane (Top / Bot lane) and farm the side waves for enough gold for Black Cleaver, during this time it's the same as the laning phase, you are looking to pull as many champions on the map towards you without getting killed and still getting farm.

If you have a lead you should look to press it by farming the enemies weakest champion, or playing with your team and being there for DPS when enemies are caught out.

Don't farm the any lane with another one of your carries in it, splitting gold and XP is NOT ok. Don't try to make solo plays into the enemy jungle with no wards, don't dash out of the fog of war at every enemy you see with no backup and no wards to see who's behind them. Play with information around the map and with your team.


Late Game Back to Top

Late game Lucians effectiveness is highly dependent on how many items you have since all you have to offer your team is your Damage if you simply don’t do enough damage to the enemies than you are much less useful.


Your late game effectiveness is even more dependent on how well you can mechanically play Lucian, dashing into the entire enemy team will not only lose you the fight, but at this stage of the game will lose you the entire game so you have to be very mindful of how you are fighting the enemies, and this will come with time, skill, and practice. You have to eat a lot of losses before you can truly master any champion, ply every fight as well as you can, and learn from the mistakes made in all of them. You will get better over time so don't worry or rage at any lose it is simply a error to be corrected.

How you playout fights will change depending on the team comps, but try to let your team start fights you have no CC, and only provide damage, and can follow up from a far distance with ULT lucianr.png. Lucian has a very short range so you have to deal with the champions in front of you, if you simply walk past the enemies melee champions you will probably be tanking 3 or more members of the enemy team, and die pretty quickly. Kite and DPS, but if you see an opening where you can single out an enemy carry without putting yourself at a huge risk then go for it. Try to push your limits every now and then, but also push your level of discipline and control. 


Any fights you win late game also lead to a lot, Lucian kills structures and objectives (Baron / Elder Dragon) very quickly.
