Not Updated For Current Season

Lucian is a caster-based Marksman who is most notable for dealing high burst damage and his mobility. His Piercing Light, Ardent Blaze and The Culling abilities, combined with the effect of Lightslinger make it easy for him to win trades, while Relentless Pursuit enables him to quickly reposition. He is short-ranged compared to many Marksmen, but this is covered by his mobility and his ability to both duel and team fight at the same time.
