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.
Hey guys this is my first attempt at making a guide for Lucian I would really appreciate it if you left feedback (positive and negative)
you're Q is your strongest ability and best harassment. for best use against someone out of range fire at a minion and it will go through the minion and hit the enemy on the other side.
when you hit an enemy with this, they get marked for a shirt period of time. when you attack a marked target you gain bonus movement speed which is helpful for chasing. also if an enemy gets hit by this while invisible for in a bush they will become visible
this ability can be used to chase escape or to reposition yourself. while chasing, you can use this to get past minions so you can fire ardent blaze, or use it to go over a wall. a good chasing method if your blue and your enemy has low health and is sitting under the turret you can use this to jump the wall in the river and then fire ardent blaze at the turret to mark them, then run in, auto attack for extra speed, q then run. good escape routes are though dragon/baron, walls in rivers that are near the top or bottom lanes, and over base walls. when using your ultimate, always use this since the cool down resets if you hit a champion with your ultimate
this powerful long ranged barrage of shots is very useful while enemies are running away the only com if that once you cast it the attack will face that direction until the duration is over. when I said you could use relentless pursuit to reposition yourself, I mean that if you start firing at an enemy and they got next to your barrage or behind you, you can e to make it so the barrage of shots starts hitting them again.
farming is relatively easy with Lucian because you have so much AD. after you use an ability your next auto attack is a double shot. i wouldn't waste this on a minion that you can one shot because the second shot would be wasted. I wouldn't use your abilities on minions a lot since you don't have good mana usage.
Lucian is a very powerful carry but one of his major cons is his mana usage. if you're purple I would ask if you could have the second and third blue buff and if you're blue I would ask the kinglet to help you steal the enemies blue buff. I wouldn't try to solo the golem without mana until you've built up to the BF sword.
No cc and Support choice
another major com of Lucian is that he has 0 crowd control (cc). I think the best support choice for him would be someone with a lot of cc like Leona or someone with has cc and buffs like lulu.
thank you for taking the time to read this and leave feedback if you agree or disagree or if you think you have a better opinion on how to play Lucian
