Threats to Lulu with this build

Threat
Low
High
Show all
Threat Champion Notes
1
Katarina Easiest lane for Lulu. Katarina generally struggles vs ranged champs, poke her down in lane with your autos. When she ults either ult someone near her for the knockup or just disable her. She struggles vs any cc.
1
Akali Your e gives vision of her invis and just poke her down in lane as she is melee.
1
Yasuo Easy lane. Harass with autos, if he's stupid he will wind wall your autos, if he does that go in for an all in and he can't do anything. Auto him to get his wind shield or wind wall down. Take exhaust. Max E first.

Introduction

Welcome to my guide! I am a Lulu main and this is my first guide. I hope you enjoy :D.


Guide Top

When and Why to play Lulu

Why to play Lulu

- She's very fun to play.

- She's good for people learning to play mid, support or top.

- She has a very high skill cap.

- She is easy.

When to play Lulu

- When you don't have alot of AP damage in your team.

- When you have a reliable engage, her Wild Growth works well with engage.

- When you're doing a protect the ADC comp, she is amazing due to her Wild Growth and Help, Pix! protecting the ADC.

-She is good in low elo in general because not alot of people buy Mikael's Crucible or Quicksilver Sash, if you are looking to counter lulu, these 2 items are your best bet along with Cleanse.


Guide Top

Items

All the items and the reasoning behind them are in the build, look at notes.
I haven't done the support notes yet, but I am working on it as I start to play her in the support role more.


Guide Top

Runes

Standard rune page.



Kinda standard on almost every AP rune page, there are better runes for lulu.


I don't like this, but if you can't afford any other runes just use these.


I am fine with these runes, they are good in almost all situations.


Normal on every AP caster in the game, can't think of any other quint that would be better than this.



Lulu rune page


Good for Lulu passive, not on any other AP caster I can think of ( other than Kayle )

Help's you scale into the late game and be a bit more tanky-ish, better than armour runes I think.

I never used these until about a month ago after seeing many other Lulu players use them, I thought they were bad but wow. They really improve your gameplay alot as Lulu needs CDR and she also needs damage, amazing rune for Lulu .


Normal on every AP caster in the game, can't think of any other quint that would be better than this.


Guide Top

Masteries

I went 12-18 on support and mid for the thunderlords keystone and feast. You can go 45% cdr if you want, if you do this you can perma shield someone or yourself.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Always max Glitterlance or Help, Pix! first, your Glitterlance gives alot of damage in teamfights along with your Help, Pix! Your Whimsy can still be used in teamfights if you use it well enough but it's more of a speed boost or a lane bully skill.


Guide Top

Spells

Passive: Pix, Faerie Companion
My favourite passive in the game, Lulu shoots 3 bolts after auto attacking, dealing 3 - 35 (based on level) (+ 5% AP) magic damage with each bolt to the first enemy it hits, for a maximum of 9 - 105 (based on level) (+ 15% AP) magic damage per basic attack. (taken from lolwiki cause idk the ap scaling and stuff lol).

Q: Glitterlance
Lulu casts a skillshot, dealing magic damage and slowing them by 80%, which decays after a short duration. Base damage: 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 and has a 50% AP scaling. The slow durations are: 1 / 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 seconds.


W: Whimsy
Ally cast: Speeds them up by 30% (+ 5% per 100 AP). On enemy cast: Lulu polymorphs them, disabling them to use any abilities or spells and slows them by 60 move speed. Whimsy duration on allies: 3 / 3.25 / 3.5 / 3.75 / 4 seconds. Polymorph duration on enemies: 1.25 / 1.5 / 1.75 / 2 / 2.25.


E: Help, Pix!
On allies: Lulu shields an ally for 6 seconds, pix also attacks with them ( so this is good with hypercarry adcs such as Jinx, Twitch and Kog'Maw )
On enemy cast: Lulu deals damage to them, also giving sight of them ( works well against champions with an invisibility spell! )
Shield stats: 80 / 120 / 160 / 200 / 240 with a 60% AP scaling.
Damage stats: 80 / 110 / 140 / 170 / 200 with a 40% AP scaling.


R: Wild Growth
Lulu enlarges an allied champion, knocking surrounding enemies up for 0.75 seconds ( this makes her good with engage champions ). Lulu also gives the allied champion health and slows nearby enemies for the duration of the Wild Growth.
Stats on the ultimate are: 300 / 450 / 600 bonus health with a 50% AP ratio.
Slows are: 30 / 45 / 60%


Guide Top

Unique Skills

Your Help, Pix! and Glitterlance are your main damage dealers, use them well in teamfights. If you are falling behind ( if you had a bad lane or just didn't do well in general ) try to Whimsy a main target in teamfights, just don't do this if its an Olaf due to his ult, Ragnarok


Guide Top

Farming

Farming may be a bit odd to the newer Lulu players, if you miss a few cs in the early game don't worry! You can always use your Glitterlance and Help, Pix! to farm. You are obviously aiming to outfarm your enemy, but it's very good to outfarm on Lulu because the build I suggested is scaling.


Guide Top

What to do in teamfights

When you're behind on Lulu it's extremely forgiving due to your amazing teamfight. Try to get a front line to engage and just Wild Growth them and knockup alot of people. Just having Lulu on your team can just win a teamfight due to your shield, ult and disable. She's a really good teamfighter and you can win almost any skirmish with her!


Guide Top

Summoner Spells


Flash is a necessity on almost all champions, you can flash to secure a kill, to escape from being killed, to dodge skillshots, just an overall amazing summoners to have on almost all champions.



Exhaust is an AMAZING summoner spell vs assassins, you're basically taking 50% of their damage away. The only assassin I wouldn't take exhaust against (most of the time) is Zed.



Ignite is a good spell vs champs that don't have kill pressure on you, but you have kill pressure on them.



Teleport is a good spell where you have no kill pressure. Use your Teleport wisely and help side lanes with it.



Good when you don't have alot of kill pressure, and when they have atleast 3 forms of CC.





Meh summoner spell, good in certain lanes but I will start trying it out more due to Lulu's speed boost nerfs.

Pros / Cons

Pros

- Counters tanks.

- Strong blind pick.

- Amazing teamfighter.

- High amount of CC.

- Good duelist

- Forgiving when behind.

- Annoying champ and tiltworthy laugh :)

Cons

- Relies on teammates too much to do well in fights.

- Mana problems early.

- Banshee's veil and cleanse counters her alot.

- Squishy in fights if focused down.

- Weak at around level 8-10.

- Cannot solo carry at all.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Shes good in ranked as she can buff up other laners and is a strong solo laner. She doesn't have alot of bad matchups too. Really safe pick, if you're choosing her blind or with your matchup showing, alot can't go wrong. She's also strong in ranked 5's as she can always buff up your laners if they're doing well (even if they aren't with enough co-ordination and with a Lulu you can turn alot of games around, even down 10k gold).


Guide Top

Items you shouldn't buy on Lulu

Don't buy this, the passive is useless on Lulu as 3/4 of her spells already slow, are you buying this for the health? If you need health buy liandry's..
Don't get this on lulu... You need CDR on her and if you already have 40%, go swifties. No reason to buy this in the current boots meta.


Guide Top

Summary

I hope you enjoyed my guide, if you don't understand anything comment and I will fix it. There's going to be some stuff you won't understand as this is my first guide! ( I'm still making the guide more appealing, colours and fixing links etc ).
And for Lulu, she is a support mage that exceeds in teamfights. Please keep in mind you're not a solocarry at all and you're a support mage. The reason she isnt played in support as much is because she scales with AP alot more. She does have high base stats though.
