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.
First: English ist not my best language, so pls dont be angry about some misstakes (;
Yes, you read right, Lulu Solo Top guide. And this I no troll. I've tried this build myself often enough, and it works!
First of all, Lulu is a really flexible champ. You can play er as support, jungler, ap carry mid, ad carry or solo top. Normally you send the tanks in the top, so make sure, you have a tanky jungler, and maybe tanky support. Otherwise your team will miss tankyness in late game. Cause Lulu's Ulti is great for the initiating tank, to knock more enemys up and disable them to fight.
The most of the top Champs don't have range, so it's easy for Lulu to farm in solo top. But always be careful, Lulu is not so tanky like the most tanks, she is really squishy early and mid game. Thi is why i build my Runes and Items for that.
First of all, we skillGlitterlance, your Q first. Cause it deals damage and slows the enemy. If you get ganked by the enemy jungler after red/blue at lv. 2, you can use it to slow the jungler and top laner to survive. Or you can use it to slow the enemy, if your jungler comes to an Lv. 2 gank. Glittterlance is the Skil to max first too. At lv. 2 you must skill Whimsy. The Movement Speed or disable the enemy to attack is a must. But you max it last, cause it doensn't increase the duration speed buff for you. Depend, how the lane is doing, skill Help, Pix! at lv. 3 or lv 4. It's a really good Skill to prevent you from dieing by ignite. It also help's you against stealth top Champs like Akali, Teemo or (if the enemys are so funny) Shaco and Evelynn. It is also smart to cast it on your jungler and then use your Glitterlance, if he is faster then you to help to slow the enemy laner. Max Help Pix! after you skilled Glitterlance full. At lv. 6, you must skill Wild Growth, Lulu's Ultimate. It's the perfect move to destroy enemy turret diveing. If they think, they can get you, use your Whimsy to prevent them by attacking and cast Wild Growth on yourself. The Enemy will die or escape with low life. This Ultimate is great for Teamfights, it can turn arround a teamfight, by preventing mighty Utlimates like Katarina or Nunu.
Runes and Masteries
I took AD Marks, for good last hitting early game, AP Glyphs for making my spells effective early game, mixed Quintessences, and Armor Seals, cause you need armor in the top.
My Masteries are nearly the same, AD and AP mixed, with some defense to make her a way more tanky. Trust me, that's ok. Lulu deals so much damage. And i added 3 Points in Bonus Mana, cause Lulu has some Mana Problems Mid Game.
What you building first depends on the enemy team. Earlier I tookBerserker's Greaves, but then I changed to Mercury Threads or Ninja Tabi. On your first Trip back you should complete your boots, and buy key items for your 3 most important items. With enough Money, I buy most Hextech Revolver for some Spell Vamp, Vampiric Scepter for some Life Steal with auto attacks and a Dagger for some attack speed. Never forget Wards.
I would recommend to buy Hextech Revolver early as possible, for spell vamp, but complete Hextech Gunblade at last. It's still the most OP Item in the Game for every Champ, but if you have some Spell Vamp and Life Steal Items, you better complete other items first.
Dependen, how you doing, you build nashor's tooth or Guinsoo's Rageblade first. Rageblade gaves you nice AP and Attack Speed Boost and some more AD, but the Cooldown Reduction from NT and the Mana Regeneration are really important for Lulu. Because you don't buy an Philosopher stone, and don't have much naturally Mana Regeneration, you need this fast. Nashor's Tooth is also a good Item for the Ability Power Boost.
After you build your Boots and 3 Basic Items, you can go for Frozen Mallet. Don't build Trinity Force on Lulu, cause she has a very low Basic AD, so there is no sense to buy the most expensive Item in the Game. You don't need the Sheen Effect and Frozen Mallet gives you more Health and Slow.
After you got Frozen Mallet, you can go for Madred's Bloodrazor, Wit's End or Randuin's Omen. Take Wit's End for an AP heavy enemy team, Bloodrazor for and AD heavy and/or much health enemy Team. Or if you think, you do enough Damage and don't need no more Attack Speed, go for Randuin's Omen, one of the best Items in the Game. The Basic Attack slow will destroy the enemy AD Carry and if you stay in the middle of their Team during Team fight, use the active to destroy all AD Power of them. But what you choose for your 6th Item depends on your Style. Never forget, Lulu's damage is OP, but she is squishy.
This Guide is not complete
It's just my first guide, sorry guys. I Will Add Chapters for some Champs you will meet in the Top lane and how you can dominate them easylie with Lulu, and maybe include an alternative Support and/or AP Carry Mid Lulu Guide. Cause Lulu is just OP.
