lucian full attack speed is useless, and he don't need hurricane because he don't have poison or slow with basic attack


Thanks for the input. However, Runaan's is mainly if you're falling behind on creep, it's not for champion damage. Check the item build section for more info.

I think Shiv is well more viable than Runaans due to the crit, the passive, and it builds from Avarice Blade. If after Doran's you snag a Vamp Scepter and an Avarice Blade, you can just focus on farming for a good time while still having sustain and enough damage for trades. With the money you score you can work towards more costly items more quickly too, then finish it off after Botrk and Manamune so you don't drop off in damage in comparison to the other team's adc. I'd like you to consider Iceborn Gauntlet over Trinity Force. Though the spellblade is weaker, the aoe can make up for not getting Runaans, while also providing some durability with its armor, a slow that he lacks (great for kiting in combo with w), mana for Muramana, and some cdr that flows really well with his kit. tl;dr Maybe more utility than damage, like a blue Ezreal but better looking. Otherwise a very nice guide with well appreciated tips.

Much cleaner than your last version. Good job

The layout could still use some work tho. Try making the chapters a little less wordy. or at least space it out a bit. adding pictures can help a lot, (take screen shots in game by pressing the "F12".)

Also you should think about adding optional items into your build at the top of the guide.

what that guy means about the quint is that normally 2 lifesteal quints are taken on an adc, with one being attack damage. Have seen a couple guides that use triple ls quints, but generlly 2 ls and 1 ad is better.


Thanks for clarifying! If that's the case, I think I would prefer life steal in all 3. Again, this is my personal opinion, I'll add a note in the next update about the attack damage quint option.

Thanks for the feedback again!

The build is incorrect, runes have one ls quint too many and skill sequence is incorrect.


Both the skill sequence and quintessences are correct, please double check it.

Again, thanks for the feedback.

^ this and your guide really doesn't provide much out of an item build and order. needs a lot more work.

get rid of the lore. reorder the sections to put pros and cons higher...ahhh...so much....you have a section 'learn how to farm' but provide no real tips on how to do so.

seriously read jhoi's guide and other top guides and come back to this.



Thanks for the feedback.. although I'm not sure I understand what you mean when you say there's not an Item build order. I build Boots sometimes, as mentioned in the guide, then Blade of the Ruined King, then finish berserkers greaves. But other than that, I build full items, I don't build part of an item, then come back to finish it later, if that's what you mean.

I can see moving the "Pro's and Con's" higher in the guide, and will probably update that soon, thanks.

I placeed the "Lore" section after the "Summary", so people wouldn't feel inclined to read it if they didn't want to.

And finally, the "Creep Farming" chapter doesn't say, "learn how to farm", it says "learn how to last hit", which is all you really need to know. I didn't feel like I had to explain in detail something that is common knowledge.

Again, thanks for the feedback, I'll fix a few of the things you mentioned in the next update.

A little harsh to downvote just cause he didn't take barrier :/

Would seriously put Statikk Shiv or Phantom Dancer above runnans, mostly because of their crit chance. Because Lucians double shots can crit, this makes a small amount of crit very cost efficient on him (for refernce, the 20% crit on Statikk Shiv on a double shot turns into 36% chance) and since adc's deal most of their late game damage of off crits anyway, it just makes sense to use one of these over runnans.

Though Iam curious if runnans fires twice on his double shot, it isnt exactly optimal on an adc who needs to be capable of taking down individual targets quickly.


Hey, thanks for the input! I get what you're saying about the crit, and it does make sense with Lucian's passive. However, I think people underestimate Runaan's. Just 2 days ago, I was able to get a triple kill, because I had it. If I didn't have that, it would have been a single kill, and then I would have died.

Since the crit you're looking for is late game, would it be acceptable to build Runaan's Hurricane, then later sell it to buy a Static Shiv?

Either way, thank you for the feedback! This guide is constantly being updated, so I may change masteries and items to crit %, after I do some field testing with builds.

If you would have read the entire guide, specifically "Spells", you would have read that Barrier is fine as a replacement for ghost. Please read the guide before you vote on it -.-"
