Champion Build Guide

- Short attack range
- Bad lategame
- Weak against Tanks
After using an ability, Lucian's next basic attack within 3 seconds shoots twice, dealing 40 / 50 / 60% AD physical damage on the second shot, increased to 100% AD against minions, which also applies on-hit effects and can critically strike (critical strike damage is halved against champions and monsters). If Lucian's primary target is killed before the second shot can go off, he automatically shoots another enemy.
Q: Piercing Light
TARGET RANGE: 500 / 900 COST: 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 Mana COOLDOWN: 9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5
Active: After a 0.4 - 0.25 (based on level) seconds delay, Lucian fires a laser in the direction of the target enemy, dealing physical damage to all enemies in a line.
85 / 120 / 155 / 190 / 225 (+ 60 / 70 / 80 / 90 / 100% bonus AD)
W: Ardent Blaze
TARGET RANGE: 900 COST: 50 Mana COOLDOWN: 14 / 13 / 12 / 11 / 10
Active: After a 0.25 seconds delay, Lucian fires a shot that explodes in a cross pattern upon hitting an enemy or reaching the end of its path, dealing magic damage, marking enemies hit for 6 seconds, and granting sight of them for the same duration.
60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+ 90% AP)
Lucian gains bonus movement speed for 1 second if he or allied champions damage a marked target with basic attacks or abilities.
Bonus Movement Speed:
60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80
E: Relentless Pursuit
TARGET RANGE: 425 COST: 40 / 30 / 20 / 10 / 0 Mana COOLDOWN: 22 / 20 / 18 / 16 / 14
Active: Lucian dashes a short distance.
Relentless Pursuit's cooldown is reduced by 1 second (2 against enemy champions) for each Lightslinger shot landed.
Relentless Pursuit resets Lucian's autoattack timer.
R: The Culling
TARGET RANGE: 1200 COST: 100 Mana COOLDOWN: 110 / 100 / 90
Active: Lucian fires shots in the target direction for 3 seconds, dealing physical damage to the first enemy they collide with (damage is quadrupled against enemy minions)
Physical Damage Per Shot:
20 / 35 / 50 (+ 20% AD) (+ 10% AP)
20 / 25 / 30
While using The Culling, Lucian cannot use basic attacks or damaging abilities, but is ghosted, can move freely, and can activate Relentless Pursuit. The Culling can only be interrupted by crowd control that prevents the ability to use basic attacks.
The Culling can be reactivated to end its effects prematurely.
Start with blade of the ruined king, go for black cleaver and you are completely OP with 2 instead of 3 items.
That cooldown reduction gives you so much utility and dueling power, lucian is literally one of the strongest mid game ad Carrys in the game right now.
For all those players who are sad because of crit ad Carrie's - play lucian.
After finishing these items + boots you have space for 3 more items. It's up to you to buy utility like guardian angel or scimitar or go for lethality or crit to increase your damage further. I would make that dependent on the game but infinity edge + rapidfirecannon might be the items with highest damage output.
Thats way too amazing not to use it.
Lucian plays an agressive lane so triumph and alacrity boost are the best choices in my opinion. Coupe de grace is very nice also but you should go for cut down if your enemies have a lot of tanks because they are your natural counter. In second tree my personal recommendation is the inspiration tree.
Like other ad carries lucian also benefits from reaching his powerspike as soon as possible so you can save a lot of gold by not buying boots and lots of health potions and use magical footwear and biscuit delivery fron inspiration tree instead.
- Always start your combo with your weakest ability, so your stronger ones benefits from press the attack.
I mostly start with Autoattack W Double auto attack continue with E double auto attack and Q double auto attack. If you are level 6 yet you can use your ult after this combo.
- Use E early to get it's cooldown low again. Everytime you attack you reduce it's cooldown.
- When you want to ult try to hit a W before so you will get a movement speed bonus while hitting ult shots.
- Check river for plants. Lucians mana costs are very high.
- Try to steal dragons and barons with ult. You are dealing increased damage to monsters.
- If you dont feel able to kite your enemies frontline anymore (because of that short attack range) red buff and rapid firecannon will help you out.
If youre rather a defensive player who wants to scale lucian might be the wrong champ for you.
His dash is amazing he's a strong 1v1 champ and you can completely outplay people in early and mid game.
