Why Not Support ?
Pros / Cons
Pros & Cons
Lulu is very mobile making her hard to catch
Lulu has a slow and can turn her enemys into cute dragons that cant do anything
Lulu has lots of poke damage that can slow at the same time
Runes make it easy to deal out early poke
Lulus ultimate heals health
Lulu has a shield that can protect you
Lulu farms easily
Lulu is cute
Lulu is quite a mana hog so I tend to rush the athenes
Lulu is very squishy so u cant engage multiple champions
U have to build tanky items to live in the mid lane
Lulu requires the 2nd blue buff
Lulu gets punished by high poke champions (zed, ahri ect)
A Lulu you want to run Mark of Hybrid Penetration to deal out the most damage at all times during the early game. It can help in all sitations due to the fact that it penetrates both types of armor and magic resist. As lulu you want either Seal of Armor or Seal of Mana Regeneration. Most of the time you want to use Seal of Armor because it is always good to have extra protection from jungler or ad mid laners. Taking Seal of Mana Regeneration is only a situational rune due to the fact that most junglers or mid laners have some sort of attack damage.
Greater Glyph of Magic Resist
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Mark of Precision
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
Spells & Masteries
As Lulu u generaly want to take Ignite so you can deal out extra damage with Ignite when you go all in. You also want Flash so you can get out of sticky situatins with the enemy jungler or later in the game with team fights ect. If you don't take Ignite than you should take Barrier to shield yourself in bad situations. These are actually the only spells you want to take because these spells will keep you alive or get you early kills.
For Masteries you want to take the standard ap masteries. With cooldown reduction and extra ap ect.
Pix, Faerie Companion
Whenever Lulu or the allied target of Help, Pix! attacks an enemy (excluding structures and wards), Pix fires a barrage of 3 homing bolts toward the same target that deal 3 / 7 / 11 / 15 / 19 / 23 / 27 / 31 / 35 (+ 5% AP) magic damage each to the first enemy they each hit.
ACTIVE: Lulu and Pix each fire a magic bolt towards a target direction, dealing magic damage and slowing enemies hit by 80% for a short time. This slow decreases to 0% (+13.3% per 100 AP) over its duration. An enemy can only be affected by one bolt.
ACTIVE – ON ALLY CAST: Target allied champion gains 30% (+ 10% per 100 AP) movement speed for 5 seconds.
ACTIVE – ON ENEMY CAST: Polymorphs an enemy champion for a short duration, disabling their ability to attack or cast abilities and reducing their base movement speed by 60.
ACTIVE – ON ALLY CAST: Commands Pix to jump to an ally and grant them a shield for up to 6 seconds. Additionally, Pix will then follow the ally and aid their attacks instead of Lulu's for 6 seconds.
ACTIVE – ON ENEMY CAST: Pix deals magic damage to target enemy unit. Pix then follows and grants vision of them for 6 seconds.
ACTIVE: Lulu enlarges a target allied champion, knocking up enemies within 150 range of the target. For 7 seconds, her ally gains bonus health and an aura that continually slows nearby enemies.
As Lulu you want to upgrade your glitterlance all the way first. The glitter lance is your main source of poke and is the key to mid lane Lulu. The way you want to use her glitter lance is to slow the enemy or to poke. It is very useful for chasing due to the fact is slows. Lulus W is very good for running away from enemy champions or killing them. The W either speeds up you or a team mate. With the W it will either turn them into a cute dragon that is useless, or speed up you or a fellow team member. Lulus E is used for shielding urself or for your Pix. (in my case its a dragon) You want to use your w on a team mate to shield them and also deal out slows on the enemy via Glitterlance. The E does damage itself so it is very good for stealing some of the last farm. The E also will shield yourself so use it to your advantage. Like dealing with pesky Teemo shrooms. Lulus ultimate is good for keeping yourself alive or initiating with by activating it on a team mate. Also Lulus ultimate knocks up enemy champions so its a good combo with yasuo due to the knockup. Lulus Ultimate also gives you health after it wears off so it is good if you are running low on health and u just for some reason dont want to recall.
Farming is very important for every champion. Farming is every champions key to success. Farming is killing creeps (minions). Farming is how you get gold in the league of legends. The only way to get gold from the creeps is by getting the very last hit on a minion or anything else that is not a champion. Lulu is a wonderful farmer because of pix. Pix makes Lulu able to kill creeps with two hits at lvl 1. Pix basically is the little fairy (dragon) that follows you around and helps you. Whatever you fire ar it fires at with you. Pix also shoots your Glitterlance ability with you, basically shooting two glitterlances. So you can use this to farm with. Always stay in lane when there is a cannon minion so you can get extra gold an xp. Try to only leave lane when the cannon wave just ended so early backing is okay as long as there are no cannon minions. a good way to farm with Lulu it to line up next to the minions and use your Glitterlance to farm a row of minions at a time.
Lulu has very few counters that are actually determined do to the fact that she is a very new meta mid laner. But the counters that i do have are listerd below:
Very few champions are known to always counter her due to the fact that she is not always played mid. Out of experience here are some people she gets countered by.
Mid Lane Synergy
As any mid laner you always want to be prepared for nasty junglers who gank. When your enemy initiates while you have the upper hand it is either him fakeing it or his jungler is there to back you up. Most junlers gank from behind you so when you are pushed up be aware. Most of the time the enmy jungler will gank you from one side of the river so be warry of the top and bottom bush in the river. When you get ganked from one of these side and your jungler is no where to be seen then Whimsy either yourself or the enemy jungler so you can possibly get away. It may bee smarter to Whimsy yourself so you can then slow them with Glitterlance. Dont ever be afraid to buy extra Warding Totem. An extra 175 gold nver hurt anyone.
Lulu is all around a very good mid lane champion. She is a great farmer and can deal out loads of poke. So good luck summoners !! Hope you enjoyed my Lulu guide. The guide will be updated on a regular bases if needed.
