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.
Welcome to my 2014 Season 4 Lucian guide.
At the start of the 2014 season Lucian is by far the strongest ADC pick in my opinion. He out trades and out lanes any ADC while still having a very strong late game team fight.
Try to have mercy on my grammar though, I was that kid that cheated in English class ;).
Enjoy my guide :)
This is the bread and butter. Its what I use 99.99% of the time.
On the off chance I play with a caster like Leblanc, and I wouldnt recommend it but you could roll this with annie as well
If you have trouble csing you can do this for more sustain & far easier cs
The early game
Main goal is to abuse your early game. Lucians early game is by far better than anyones. This is why I almost always take barrier, even against Leona. This is very dependent on your support. If you can keep the bushes warded always take barrier, but if you cant depend on your support take clense because it will be hard to see the xenith comming.
The Mid Game
You will out trade about any marksmen outside of a very good draven or a vayne that get a condemn on you.
The Late Game
Look to team fight. You have solid AoE with 'Q' and 'W' and lucian is brain dead easy to position with 'E'. As always, push towers and roam if your looking to win.
Lane Bullying 101
The North Push Point
Try to keep your wave behind this point, it will save you from the enemy jungler a ton.
Same as the north side, this is your point when on the other team
Great example of a lvl 1 Q shot. This is good at lvl 1 because you want to pressure the wave to get lvl 2 before you enemy. It gives you better stats and more abilities to take control of the lane. Other times I would normally try not to push When to push and when not to push are in the next chapter.
When to push and when not to push
Scenario 1 : You're ahead 1 kill and you have both returned from the last fight. Keep the lane in the middle or pushed towards your tower. This will allow you to take advantage of your early kill and give your jungler a great path to gank.
Scenario 2 : You're ahead 3 kills, 2 of which are on their support and 1 on their carry. Use that extra money to pick up a ward and then shove that lane and pressure the tower down.
If you kill them at any point while ahead, take their tower and call your jungler to do dragon
Scenario 3 : You have had a rough lane and are getting stomped. Put a couple points into your W, let them push and try to play safe. Wait for your jungler or a great opening. Above all remember its early game, things can turn around, stay positive.
Play Lucian if you want to win, not if you want a challenge.
Step 1: Play the black man
Step 2: Install Fear
Step 3: Run circles around the nubs
Step 4: Have pity and end the game quickly
