Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hello everyone my name is Gibune or known in game as that nubbbb. I currently play on the oce servers and am at gold rank. Lucian is a fun adc to play, he has some nice mobility and strong abilities to make an enjoyable and unique experience to play as.
pros and cons
|+ Great mobility
+ Strong laning phase
+ Strong abilities
+ Good teamfight
|Lucian is a very strong adc in the early-mid game and with certain builds late game aswell. he has a few tools to do strong damage like his Piercing Light and Lightslinger which makes cdr strong on Lucian. He has very good kite potential with his Relentless Pursuit and Ardent Blaze.|
|+ Not a hyper carry
+ High mana costs
+ Not the best damage
+ Short range
|some of the negatives of Lucian is his short range and low damage compared to other hyper carries. This can make late game teamfighting a bit of a pain and downside. Lucian also has some high mana costs and with the removal of mana potions that can really hurt lucians potential.|
// We put in 18 points into ferocity as it gives some nice damage stats and life steal. We take the keystone mastery from here Warlord's Bloodlust as it gives you crazy Lifesteal. We put the rest of our points into resolve for more defense to wins trades.
- Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed: attack speed will give us more damage per second and help us last hit since our attacks fire faster.
- Greater Mark of Attack Damage: we need damage so attack damage marks will help with that.
- Greater Glyph of Magic Resist: magic resist for if the enemy mid laner roams bot lane or the enemy support has strong magic damage and trust me they do in solo queue.
- Greater Seal of Armor: this will help us tank some more hits from the enemy adc and help us win trades.
Ability Sequence Order
|We want to put a point into our ult everytime we can obviously. You want to max Piercing Light first as it gives good stats per level up and does the most damage from our abilities. Then you max Relentless Pursuit as it lowers the mana cost and cooldown so we can dash around more. Then finally Ardent Blaze, we max this last as it is nearly useless to level up.|
// Lightslinger adds an extra attack to your auto attack after every ability use, the second shot deals about 50% of your damage.
// This is why we want to get a lot of cdr as we can spam abilities to activate the passive to get a ton of damage. The best bit about this is that it can activate on hit effects such as critical strikes or Blade of the Ruined King passive.
ABILITY Piercing lightPiercing Light
// this ability does damage in a line after you target and enemy with it. It has a short delay before the lasor comes out.
// This is one of Lucians best abilities and you will be using this a lot. It help with killing enemies, Clearing waves and more. Be sure to spam this but watch out for you mana as it does drain it quite quickly.
// this ability fires a skillshot that explodes in a cross pattern on impact of a champion or end of its range. Hitting an enemy gives vision of them and movespeed when you auto attack them
// This ability does not do much damage at all and scales with ap, but is very effective at chasing down enemies or kiting away from them. you can check bushes with this skill if you are afraid there is an enemy is the bush
// This ability is a short dash and its cooldown is reduced for each time Lightslinger is used
// This ability is a small dash and may seem a bit useless but it activates Lightslinger and also has a short cooldown when used with other abilities you can be dashing around like crazy and gives a lot of mobility.
// This ability fires shots in a targeted direction for 3 seconds.
// This ability is fantastic because not only does it do great damage to champions but the damage is quadrupled against minions making it a great wave clear ability. The cooldown on this when you have 40% cdr is very short aswell making it ideal to clear cruical waves to apply pressure on your enemy.
|You should be getting these boots almost every game as it provides a lot of cdr which is crucial on Lucian.|
|The new Essence Reaver now has crit and cdr. this is great because the two passives means we get our 40% cdr and our mana pool high as we crit a lot from Lightslinger|
|This item is very good as it provides some attack speed some crit chance and some movespeed. The passive is also very good to get some extra burst damage|
|This new item that upgrades from Last Whisper. We pick this upgrade as the other one gives Grievous wounds which is almost useless and this upgrade gives some nice extra damage against tanks.|
|This item is very good. If you can get this item quickly you are set up for late game. When you get this item all the pieces come together, The almost infinite mana the 50% crit chance, our passive Lightslinger all getting crits and Blade of the Ruined King passive hits makes for some hefty damage.|
|This is our defense item as we need one or else we will die quickly and not do any damage. You can get either Banshee's Veil or Guardian Angel to fufill your defense slot|
there are 3 game phases in a game of league there are
EARLY GAME, MID GAME AND LATE GAME.
early game is all about last hitting in lane. you should aim for about 100cs at 14 minutes, this will give you a lead over your opponent If they cant last hit. when the opponent tries to last hit hit them with an auto attack, if you have an aggressive support this could even lead to a kill.
mid game is about 15-20 minute mark. you should have atleast 100-150cs. depending on how you went in lane will dictate your mid game. if your team is ahead and you won lane, you should roam with you team and try to take objectives. if you lost lane though you should stay in lane and try to cs, you can also freeze the lane so your opponent cant come bot to farm. heres a link if you don't know how to freeze the lane freeze lane guide
this is where things get tough for you, its hard to cs without getting ganked so you have to teamfight. in teamfights you should hang at the back of your team, once the teamfight erupts focus on the closest and most important enemy while keeping yourself safe so if that means attacking the tank you go ahead and do that. once the enemy cc is gone and you feel safe go in with and go crazy. try to get your team to focus on baron and dragon as that gives you massive advantages in the 5.1 patch.
