Runes

Sorcery

  • Summon Aery: Aery synergies incredibly well with Lulu's play-style mix of offensive lane pressure and late-game shielding. Make sure to pick up Aery as often as you can to make full use of her. Also, she's a second pet for Lulu and it's lovely.
  • The Ultimate Hat: The Ultimate Hat allows you the freedom to use Wild Growth more offensively and liberally when fighting skirmishes without worrying of it being on cooldown for a teamfight.
  • Transcendence: Transcendence is a great rune choice for most mages and supports as repetitive spell casts is the majority of their damage/utility, and pairs well with The Ultimate Hat.
  • Scorch: Paired with Summon Aery, Scorch grants Lulu fantastic lane power and harassment damage. Using Help, Pix! > AA > Glitterlance > AA, will take away almost half target's health. Enemies will be having a hard time in laning phase against you.

Domination

  • Zombie Ward: This is great to have a lot of map control, because it leaves a ward when you kill a ward or if it just expires. It lasts 3 minutes and don't count on your ward limit but it's visible and can be destroyed with a basic attack. It can be useful in every moment of the game, not only in laning phase when you don't have more wards or if your Warding Totem it's on cooldown.

Spells


Flash: Allows a blink to where your cursor is. I always use it, because it's good in any situation, allowing you to escape, to save an ally or simply to get a kill.

Exhaust: Slows a target by 30% and reduces its damage by 40%. Exhaust is a great spell to pick as support, because you can use it to engage or to disengage.

Ignite: Sets fire to the enemy and does damage over 5 seconds, applying Grevious Wounds. If you're going to play aggressive or the enemy team has a lot of heals/lifesteal, pick Ignite instead of Exhaust.

Cleanse: Pick this if the enemy team has a lot of CC or if they don't have burst/assassins. IT DOESN'T REMOVE SUPPRESSIONS ( Nether Grasp, Infinite Duress), Impale, Devour and Fear Beyond Death.

Abilities

Pix, Faerie Companion (Passive)
Lulu is assisted by Pix, a faerie, who fires a barrage of 3 bolts to her target every time she uses a basic attack against a unit, dealing 5 - 39 (based on level) (+ 5% AP) bonus magic damage with each bolt to the first enemy it hits, for a total of 15 - 117 (based on level) (+ 15% AP) bonus magic damage per basic attack. The bolts can be blocked by units in the way of Lulu's target.
Casting Help, Pix! on an ally transfers Pix's help to them for the duration.
7.2 PATCH: Pix’s damage now increases every level, rather than every two levels.

> > > We want to max out Help, Pix! because it is the skill we will use the most. Then Whimsy as it polymorphs people in cute little thingies and because it allows a lot of attack and movement speed. We level up Glitterlance last because its slow it's always 80%, so it's useful even at the first level and we don't want to deal damage.

Ohmwrecker

Randuin's Omen

With the new runes, I start with Spellthief's Edge because I start with 25 AP and this gives me 10 more, so we're going full yolo to poke enemies down. We have no armor or magic resist, so be careful if they engage on you. I'm always focused when I play Lulu and I always have to watch the minimap and stuff.


I always build these, because movement speed is vital. You can choose between Boots of Swiftness and Mercury's Treads.
You can build Ionian Boots of Lucidity, you will have 45% CDR and 10% CDR on Summoner Spells.

Yes. This is the top item for Lulu. Your heals and shields grant 20-35% attack speed and 20-35% on-hit damage for 6 seconds. It stacks beautifully with Whimsy. It has great stats, I just love it and it's a must on Lulu. This item is the reason why Lulu and Janna are always banned.


Standard item, it has great stats, it gives 10% shield power (+ 10% from Ardent Censer and Windspeaker's Blessing ) we have our shields by increased 30%. Redemption's heal and shield power is 3 times as effective on Redemption's heal, so we'll shield a lot our teammates in teamfights.
If you have Ornn in team, remember to upgrade this into Salvation!

Ohmwrecker is an underrestimate item. It gives great stats and it's useful for diving under towers. It gives movement speed when you walk near a turret (even destroyed ones) and it can disable both of Nexus' turrets at the same time. It gives armor, health and cdr, try it out sometimes, you might have fun. I build this just for fun, don't judge pleeease.


This is the item we need to survive to AD assassins (like Zed, Talon, Rengar and Kha'Zix)! It gives a lot of HP and 60 armor, it makes you pretty hard to kill for an ADC also (for the passive that reduces crit damage by 10% and the one that slows enemy's attack speed by 15% if you're hit by an AA). The last item is very situational though.


Other items you can choose
AGAINST AD

I don't build this item so much, but its stats are pretty strong on Lulu. Build this if the enemy team has 2-3 attack speed-based champs like Vayne, Jinx, Master Yi, Xin Zhao.



Thornmail is OP right now. It gives you health and a lot of armor. When you get hit by an AA, you reflect magic damage equal to 10% of your bonus armor plus 25 (so I would recommend to build another armor item, like Randuin's Omen) and inflict Grevious Wounds on the attacker. It also slows its attack speed by 15% for 1 second.

AGAINST AP

Take this item if they have a heavy engage like Unstoppable Force, Glacial Prison, Curse of the Sad Mummy, Solar Flare or even just a Blitzcrank/ Thresh. This is your main item against AP champs, build it if they have a fed AP that could just burst you down like Fizz, LeBlanc, Ahri ecc. Now it gives AP and 10% cdr, so it wouldn't be a so bad choice.

Alright guys, you team is going well, they're not dying that much and enemy towers are gone in like 15-20 minutes. This is your item after Redemption. You can poke and stack Blood Charges, so when you heal someone, you will heal them even more. Remember that you're pretty easy to kill if you build this.

This item is pretty cool: its stats are great to be tanky and its passive will help your AP carries dealing 10% more damage. It even gives you the 10% cdr you need to reach 45%. You can choose between this and Adaptive Helm.
Choose this if you have Ornn in team, so you can upgrade it into Infernal Mask!

This item gives more armor than MR, so why I put it in "against AP"? Because of its active. If enemy team has 2-3 AP champs and you use this on a minion that's going toplane, you force their AD/ADC to go top to kill it and depush the lane. In that time, your team can try to engage a 5v4 and most likely to win it.

SITUATIONALS

This item doesn't belong to us anymore. It's great on champs like Leona, Rakan etc. Now when you ult near your ally, it surrounds you with a frost storm and ignites ally's AA. The storm around you slows enemyes by 20% and your ally's AA burn enemies for a 50% bonus magic damage over 2 seconds. Don't build this, we're not going to join the party in the middle of the fight.

I like these, but I prefer Boots of Mobility. If you want to keep running a bit fast in fights, pick these. If you want to run faster around the map, take mobility ones. These reduce slowing effects by 25%, so they're pretty good, because lot of champs have slowing skills.


Pick this if you want to keep a lane safe from being pushed. It has the same passive as Ohmwrecker, but the damage done by the first and the fourth Voidspawn gain 15% of your total health as damage, so I would recommend to build another HP item in addition to Redemption.


There will always be at least one enemy in the enemy team that has a hard CC, so this is a good choice. If you time it right, you can save a teammate granting him 40% movement speed after the "cleanse". It stats are not great but we like that 20% bonus shielding power. It works very well with Redemption for its passive!

I used to build this after Ardent Censer but now it works well on your bonus health and we don't have so much bonus health now. Try to don't use it uselessly. Always try to catch the right moment, like when Katarina/ Xayah/ Lux is ulting.

Warding



This is where you and your team should ward:
  • Yellow: Vital to protect the jungler on your team
  • Blue: For protection depending on which lane you're on
  • Red: To guard Dragon and Baron


Guide Top

Laning Phase

Alright, the game begins and we're ready to win this lane!
I start with Help, Pix!, because I can help my jungler while pulling blue/red buff and because I often find enemies that have early poke. I want to help my adc to push the lane and get level 2 before them, so I autoattack minions and I'm ready to shield me or my adc if they want to trade. When you get level 2, take Glitterlance so you can push better, poke and slow enemies (even the enemy jungler if needed). If they have a jungler that can gank after level 2-3 (like Lee Sin, Shaco etc.), ward the river bush if you're pushing (ward their tri-bush if your jungler killed scuttle crub). If you're against a poke support, don't poke back because you don't have Thunderlord's Decree , so just focus on shielding.
If you're against a champ like Leona or Thresh, try to poke them with AA when they're attacking minions or if they trade you. Leona's engage is faster than Thresh's, so if she engages your adc, shield him and use Whimsy on their adc to make her engage useless and run back. If they keep following you, use Glitterlance to slow them down.
Always try to recall when your adc is recalling, so you get back to lane together. If your adc recalls but you have enough health and mana and you need gold, stay in lane and last-hit minions. You'll recall when your adc recalls again or if you know that he's not going to die if you go back. Use Whimsy to get back to lane faster.
Buy Sightstone asap and keep bushes warded to avoid enemy ganks. Ward the drake if they have a champ that can solo it, like Shyvana, Kindred, Udyr, Warwick, Xin Zhao etc. or if you see that they want to fight for it.
There will be times in which you won't have wards to place, so don't push the lane and try to stay behind minions.
If your adc has escapes or a high mobility ( Ezreal, Lucian, Caitlyn, Corki...) use Whimsy on you to run away from ganks or engages.


Guide Top

Team Work

Ok guys, I think that teamworks are the most funny part to play as Lulu, because you can destroy the enemy team. Stay behind your team, near your ADC and ward in the jungle around you (overall if they have champs like Shaco, Zac, Fiddlesticks, Vi...) to avoid surprises by the enemy. Always shield your front line from poke, keep an eye on their APC or assassin, be ready to use your actives or your skills. If you see that the enemy is coming closer, slow them with Glitterlance and walk back. Speed slow allies like Jhin to run away. If they have a champ like Talon or Vayne that can become invisible, try to land Help, Pix! on him, so if he becomes invisible you can still see him thanks to Pix. You can do a lot of things in teamworks. Your Whimsy gives 45% attack speed, so you can decide to speed an ally or polymorph a strong enemy for 2,25 seconds. You can ult your front line for a great engage, or you can keep ult for an ally that's dying. Remember that Wild Growth slows enemies around it! Use Locket of the Iron Solari if they have a lot of AoE damage, like LeBlanc, Katarina, Lux etc. or just to protect an ally from an assassin like Rengar or Zed. Use Mikael's Crucible as fast as you can on a CC'ed ally. You can do a lot of things in teamfights and you could be the first target, so be careful!

Conclusions

Lulu is a versatile champion. There are so much different choices you can make on her. This is the guide on how I play her, but you can obviously choose other things. She takes time to be mastered. Not dying or giving help just with your skills not means that you are using her well. Everyone knows how to click on Q-W-E-R, not everyone know how to click on them in the right moment. She is funny to play, because everytime an enemy tries to kill you/one of your team using everything he has (ult, ignite, exhaust, item's actives ecc) and you save him, you're going to smile and say "nope" to the enemy. You can do a lot of things playing Lulu and you won't regret it.
I hope you'll love her the way I do.

I'd like to thank my lovely boyfriend for reading this guide and help me with my errors and for giving me the motivation to go on.

Thanks to jhoijhoi because without her guide, mine would be nothing.

Thanks for reading this guide, I really hope you enjoyed it!

Lore

Perhaps more than any other champion in the League, Lulu marches to the beat of her own drum. During her youth in Bandle City, she spent most of her time wandering alone in the forest or lost in a daydream. It wasn’t that she was antisocial; the day-to-day bustle of Bandle City just couldn't compete with the vibrant world of her imagination. She saw wonder in places most people overlooked. This was how she found Pix, a fae spirit, pretending to be stuck in a birdhouse. Lulu's imagination distinguished her to Pix, and he seized the opportunity to lure her into his life. He brought her to the Glade, the enchanted home of the fae, which lay nestled in a clearing in the woods. There the rigid properties of the outside world - things like size and color - changed as frequently and whimsically as the direction of the wind. Lulu felt at home in the Glade and she lingered there with Pix, fascinated by this secret place.

She quickly lost track of time. Her life in the Glade was comfortable, natural. She and Pix played fae games together, the sorts of games that she had been told were "only pretend," and she got exceedingly good at them. It caught her by surprise when she suddenly remembered that she had left a life behind in Bandle City. The Glade had a way of making everything outside seem distant and surreal. Lulu decided to revisit her former home, to share some of the lovely things she'd learned, but when she and Pix returned the world had changed. Time, she discovered, was another property that behaved differently in the Glade, and centuries had passed while she was away. Lulu sought to reconnect to the residents of the outside world, but her attempt had unfortunate results. She led all the children off to play hide and seek, temporarily changing them into flowers and animals to spice up the game, but their parents didn't appreciate her efforts. When the yordles insisted that she leave their land, she turned to a vibrant, magic place where those with unusual gifts were not just accepted but adored: the League of Legends.

"The best path between two points is upside-down, between, then inside-out and round again."
Lulu ♥
