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.
Heyo, so I've been tinkering with Lulu and I think I found a super fun yet aggressive AP Hybrid build. This build is for those that want to rofl stomp enemies AND have fun! Please enjoy :)
Keep in mind I'm still tinkering with her so mix in your ideas too!!
Also I won't go into too much detail because I want people to mainly have the cheat sheet. Sorry, but it's too hard making super great looking guides hehe.
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration best red slot runes, no questions asked. If you don't have these, don't bother with this build.
Greater Seal of Armor you're going to get focused, A LOT, plus you're super squishy. You need the armor to fight off those AD champs, and be able to handle 1v1 battles.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist I mid with Lulu a lot, so those AP mid laners will have trouble against you at the beginning. Also you won't have more magic resist for a while from items so these babies are a must have.
Greater Quintessence of Health You need the HP. You're an aggressive champ and as such you need to have that little advantage in survivability over the enemy.
None. Sorry, this guide is for attack speed of doom. You need to be able to survive and kill at the same time. Don't got the runes? This build isn't for you :(
Offensive Tree 21
So, why Brute Force and Weapon Expertise ? You'll be auto attacking a lot with this build. You won't gain too much from more AP, so the more damage you can do with auto attacks the better.
But why not Sunder you ask? Because you don't have any armor penetration, so -6 armor is negligible. 10% armor reduction is based on their armor. -6 won't do much, so I'd rather have a little more ap.
Defensive Tree 9
You need the even defense to fight any foes!!
Utility Tree 0
Yes, you have 0, and thus you'll rely on blue buff for mana, a lot, so keep that in mind if you're spamming spells. But if you play smart, you'll easily land Glitterlance and land a lot of auto attacks, thus saving your mana
My usual build is Berserker's Greaves Malady Nashor's Tooth Trinity Force Wit's End, with a situation 6th item. So if I'm getting focused in group fights, I would get Guardian Angel, but if I'm carrying, I would get Ionic Spark. Play this one by ear, only you can judge the situation.
You level up Glitterlance first, then Help, Pix!, with one level in Whimsy. This maximizes how fast you'll kill your foes. Just make sure to time you're Whimsy to stop them from hurting you. If they will live even if you burst hard then use Help, Pix! on yourself. If you know the enemy is weak, then definitely hurt them with Help, Pix!.
Wild Growth works well offensively and defensively. Offensively you use it when they're running away, or you want to stop them from casting an ultimate like Nunu's Absolute Zero, yeesh! Don't forget you can cast it on friendly champions as well!
Defensively, use it as a bait when you have low health, because guess what? You get to KEEP the health after your ultimate ends!! Or use it to save your team mates, after all, you're an aggro monkey :)
Creeping / Jungling / Farming
You're a gold *****. You need it or else you can't live lucratively. Just make sure to creep as much as possible, and be aggressive for those kills, you're carry Lulu!!!
From the jungle, try to get blue buff and red buff, since you'll need the mana and slow/damage combo.
Don't ever let people say you kill stole. You're the ultimate carry, you need the gold more. Tell 'em Abzilla said that.
Choose carefully when to use Wild Growth. If you can, save your melee as they can be a great shield for you. Use it on yourself WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. Don't just use it as soon as you fight someone.
Use Whimsy before they cast their spells. If they used em, then wait a little then use it, make sure you stop them properly.
Be aggressive, you need to out farm them, and trust me with this build you will.
sight ward's are your friends, use them a lot.
And the biggest skill of all? Have freaking fun with this! You're playing a fun build :D
Remember, you're playing a very aggressive Lulu, and as such, you should be focusing like that too. Fight hard, and win. Good luck!!
