Lucian Counters

Learn 's counters and discover matchups where they have an advantage! When you're starting a game of League of Legends you should always keep in mind if you'll be at an advantage or disadvantage against your opponent, so you can know whether to bully them or play safe. You can find detailed breakdowns of each matchup on CounterStats, and you can also check out some Lucian guides to see how to build and play against other champions you may find yourself up against!


This counter data is for Lucian ADC in Plat+ games. The percent shown is the enemy champion's counter rating against Lucian. Counter rating is our own statistic that factors in counter kills, overall kills, early lead ratio, comeback ratio, and win percent to give the whole picture of that champion's effectiveness as a counter pick.

Lucian's Abilities

Lucian's Passive
After casting an ability, Lucian's next basic attack on-attack within 3.5 seconds fires an additional shot after 0.25 seconds, which deals 50 / 55 / 60% AD physical damage (depending on level), increased to 100% AD against minions.

The second shot applies on-hit and on-attack effects at 100% effectiveness and is affected by critical strike modifiers.

If Lucian's primary target is killed before the second shot can go off, he automatically shoots another enemy in range.

Whenever Lucian is healed, shielded or granted a buff by an ally, his next two basic attacks within 6 seconds are empowered to deal 14 (+0.1 attack damage) bonus magic damage on-hit. The empowered attacks can stack up to 4 times.

After a 0.4-0.25 second delay (based on level), Lucian fires a laser in the direction of the target enemy, dealing 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 / 235 (+0.6 / 0.75 / 0.9 / 1.05 / 1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage to all enemies in a line.

ACTIVE: Lucian fires a shot in the target direction that explodes in a cross pattern upon hitting an enemy or reaching the end of its path, dealing 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 / 215 (+90% of ability power) magic damage to enemies struck and granting sight of the area for 1 second.

Enemies hit are marked for 6 seconds.

Lucian gains 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 bonus movement speed for 1 second if he or allied champions damage a marked target. Allied champions triggering this effect grant Lucian Vigilance.

R
Lucian's The Culling

1200

110 / 100 / 90 / 90 / 90
ACTIVE: Lucian channels for up to 3 seconds, rapidly firing up to 22 (+1 per 4% critical strike chance) shots in the target direction. Each shot deals 15 / 30 / 45 (+0.25 attack damage) (+15% of ability power) physical damage to the first enemy hit, doubled to 30 / 60 / 90 (+0.5 attack damage) (+30% of ability power) against minions. The Culling can be recast after 0.75 seconds during the channel, and does so automatically when the channel ends.

While channeling, Lucian is ghosted and may still move and cast Relentless Pursuit.

RECAST: Lucian ends The Culling.
