Hi My Name Is TemptatioNN. I am a Platinum League of Legends player on the North American Server . This is my 1st Guide and 1st season playing this game so dont hate :). When i started playing League of legends i was placed into bronze, i got demoted all the way down to Bronze 5 :( i was really sad so i decided to main a role which was AD Carry. Lucian was the ADC that i really liked and helped me Climb the ladder. I went from Bronze 5 to Platinum in just a couple of months. here is a link to my profile Give me a Thumbs up if you like it and i hope with this build you get the same results as i do. My twitter is @ChriiiiisY a follow would mean alot :).

When you CS as any ADC you should only last hit minions as this will push the wave toward your tower making it easy for your jungler to gank for your lane. before you back to buy items try to shove the wave of minions as much as possible so when you back you wont miss many minions.

It is harder to get CS when your lane is pushed to your tower, since the turret's attacks are stronger than your own, causing it to kill many minions. On the other hand, you can push the lane to the opponent's tower, where they will lose CS. However, this is risky, as it opens the lane up to ganks.

Mid Game
When teamfights begin, gold will come from killing champions, lane minions, and clearing the jungle monster camps. When possible, lanes can still be farmed, though your absence can hurt your team in a teamfight.

Late Game
Now the game will mainly focus on teamfights, meaning that farming is secondary. Despite this, minion waves will slowly accumulate (usually in side lanes where teamfights are not taking place). These can provide large gold/experience boosts, though as stated before, your absence can potentially hurt your team.

How To Play

Guide Top


Infinity Edge is a must rush item on lucian the early game damage and crit is insane this item gives you the highest amount of DPS of anything in the game due to the powerful crit passive
.Boots are a must on every champion you want to take berserkers greaves on all adc because it gives you good attack speed.
Statikk Shiv 40% Attack Speed, 20% Critical Strike Chance, 6% Movement Speed Multiplier. UNIQUE Passive: Moving and attacking builds Static Charges. At 100 charges, your next attack expends the charges to deal 100 magic damage to up to 4 targets. This damage will critically strike only if your initial attack also did. This item syncs amzing with your Berserkers Greaves and Infinity Edge
Next you want Last Whisper this item give you insane Armor Penetration so you can break throw the enemy's armor you want this next because it will just increase your damage output and help shred tank's
all ADC are gonna be focused hard by the enemy team so to take all the damage you want Blood thirster if gives you 80 damage and 20% Life steal thats an insane amount, in just a couple of hits you can go from 100 health to 2000 health

Last you want your defense item you want to take Guardian Angel or Banshees Veil i Prefer Guardian Angel just because who doesn't want to come back to life to kill more people
Quicksilver Sash is an amazing item that you should take on all of your ADC because its active removes all debuffs,
this item is very useful if the enemy has alot of CC (Crowd Control)
Mercurial Scimitar is the finished item of the Quicksilver Sash, late game instead of guardian angle you can choose this item for more damage output if you are confident in your micro (staying alive/controlling your champ)
Blade of the Ruined King is a good item for any AD champ that heavily relies on auto attacks. another reason this item is good is because its active slows the enemy champion you use it on so you can chase them more easily,its on hit passive is strong against tanks/health stacking champs as it does 8% of the enemy's current health . use this item instead of The Bloodthirster if you prefer the active and the on it affect ( i personally prefer The Bloodthirster because it gives more damage and life steal)
Youmuu's Ghostblade is another good item that can replace your Statikk Shiv. this item combined with Blade of the Ruined King is a killer combo for hunting down enemy champion's due to your active passive increasing attack speed and movement speed. also the armor penetration will make it more easy to CS and take down tanks, another reason to take Youmuu's Ghostblade is because its active syncs with The Culling. i mostly stick to the build i show at the start of the guide because i feel like its good in all situations (Personal preference)
Phantom Dancer is extremely strong item that is an option on all ad carry's people often have the struggle of choosing between Phantom Dancer and Statikk Shiv , the answer is buy whatever you have the money for most people will get Statikk Shiv 1st then late game switch to Phantom Dancer for the better stats.
This item synergizes really well with Lucian's passive giving him a burst of damage and a **** ton of stats this item is really good when very ahead if not just stick to Phantom Dancer and Statikk Shiv

Unique Skills

Caitlyn and Lucian can both dash over these walls use them to chase enemy's or to escape. easy tip so you dont waste flash when the enemy flashes over the wall.

Heal is a great general defensive spell to improve your survivability in duels and teamfights. Use it in any situation where you need the extra health and movespeed to survive, or to bait enemies into suiciding for you. You can even use it to save your allies or to help them reach their targets in a gank or fight.
Flash is the number one summoner spell in this game. this spell is basically get out of jail spell if your traped by the enemy you can just flash over the wall and get out of any situation. you could also use this spell to dodge abilities or to chase a far away enemy

Ranked Play

This is just some proof that i am a good AD Carry that mains Lucian and that you should use my guide as it can help you attain the same results. a link to my profile is in my introduction if you want even more proof.

Guide Top


9 Greater Mark of Attack Damage
The best choice for all AD Carry's as it gives you alot of starting attack damage to farm and trade in lane.

9 Greater Seal of Armor
Armor seals will help reduce attack damage done to you.

3 Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
attack speed is good on Lucian because it will help proc your passive Lightslinger and your Statikk Shiv.

5 Glyph of Magic Resist
to stop damage taken from supports who are mostly AP and some AD Carry champions like Corki.

4 Glyph of Attack Speed
i take 4 Glyph of Attack Speed because it increases your attack speed so you win trades and duels. i take 5 Glyph of Magic Resist because you dont need to block much magic damage from your enemy support. instead of 9 Glyph of Magic Resist the 4 Glyph of Attack Speed and the 5 Glyph of Magic Resist will have you do more Damage per second for trading against enemy's. you will see runes like these on almost all the pro players/high elo players.

This is the best setup for Lucian.21 offence offers the maximum amount of damage output for your abilities and auto attacks, and the 9 in defence will help you sustain against poke also helping you survive longer in fights.
