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.
Lulu. She is by far my favorite support in the game thus far. If you are reading this, are either interested in Lulu, or you just want to know what she is about. Over all, this guide is a work in progress and is by no means finished. I will explain my item choices as well as many of the key elements required to play Lulu.
Please note that this is a work in progress and will be updated promptly!
Pros / Cons
Possibly the best healing support in the game
Can turn people into animals
Fairly easy skill shot when using Help Pix!
Very good at harassing
Most powerful when the enemy fully commits
Offensive abilities that also double as defensive abilities
Reliant on an ad carry
Slow movement speed early game
Harder skill shot without Help Pix!
For Lulu I chose:
- 9x Mark of Replenishment
- 9x Seal of Vitality
- 9x Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction
- 3x Quintessence of Gold
Those are my preferable runes to have on Lulu, but is in no way required to play her well. I chose Mark of Replenishment because Lulu is a very mana based champion and you might find yourself out of mana quickly if you spam spells. I chose Seal of Vitality because it give you life, which helps solve to squishy problem. I chose Glyph of Scaling Cooldown Reduction because all of Lulu's spells are so great, and it is awesome to not have to worry about longer cooldowns. I chose Quintessence of Gold because it almost acts as half of a gold per 5 item for free. Plus the masteries, which I will add a section on some time in the future, give you an additional 2 gold per 5 seconds. Boom, instant gp5 item.
In short, my tip for farming is:
You ad carry needs all the farm and it really doesn't help him or her when the support hits the minions.
Now, when an ad carry isn't in the lane, free farm all you want. Lulu is pretty good at farming with Pix's help.
Also, Try and harass the enemy so they can not farm. I've done this in the past and it decimates the enemy ad carry, just be careful while doing it. I've picked up a couple of kills, just by harassing them.
You could either open with:
Fairy Charm and Sight Ward x2 and Vision Ward and Health Potion
* highly recommended *
Boots of Speed and Sight Ward
Regrowth Pendant and Sight Ward
The only one I really recommend it the first one. The others are just other possibilities, but the first one is just overall better because of the wards, counter warding with the Vision Ward, and a quick Philosopher's Stone
Your core should be:
Ionian Boots of Lucidity
Locket of The Iron Solari
After your core items, you should be looking for item to suit your team and possibly counter the enemy team. Look at items such as Will of the Ancients for an AP heavy team and look at items like Zeke's Herald for an AD heavy team. Then there are counter items such as Abyssal Scepter for an enemy team stacking magic resist or an enemy Soraka.
So the possible additional items could be:
- Will of the Ancients
- Zeke's Herald
- Abyssal Scepter
- Aegis of the Legion
- Guardian Angel
- Rabadon's Deathcap
After looking at the items, You might be thinking
"Hey Gtrhero, why do you only have 5 items?"
That is because you always need an open spot for more wards.
Wards are the most powerful items in the game.
But, I will get into that later.
