Been wanting to post this and now I am. So...

When Lucian was first released I realized that all of his abilites at the time cost a ton of mana. And to suffice for that I went for a Tear of the Goddess on him. Now no one builds that but I would like to know why that never/did not work...and will it ever? Does it delay his build path? Does it just not compliment his kit (I think it does)? IDK...answers plz. (I sometimes build him with tear...)
I main...the entire top lane.
I miss: Tank Rengar top, AD Nidalee, Mash Keyboard Ryze...the OPs

Lucian's early game is far to strong and amazing to justify gutting it with a tear.

Also this thread would have been better as a question thing. It's on the front page, pretty visible. people should use it more.

Lucian also doesn't have mana problems if you don't waste your mana on inefficient trades.

If you're really having mana problems in lane, and you really don't want to try to manage your mana better, then the solution isn't to buy a permanent, 700 gold item.

That's what I do when I play Lucian


But I think the hardest thing I had to learn when playing lucian and it goes for just about every other champion I have learned to play. Was not to waste spells on last hitting. There are a few cases where it's okay to use abilities to last hit but Lucian really inst one of them, unless your using the range on your Q to last hit a tank minion when your being zoned, and that's about hit, other then Lightslinger and even that should be used to trade with against the opposing lane. But if you are making every hit count and are being very aggressive in lane get a few mana pots Tear will just hold you back damage wise

I also believe that they made it so Muramana's active doesn't even work with the Culling, which would be one of the main attractions for buying that item. I mean, the Lightslinger passive is still there, but there's better items that can make use of the passive, and allow better DPS.

Thank you to MissMaw for the signatures!

Not to mention that Riot includes items like Essence Reaver in their Preseason decision to scale down the gold needed to build into a certain direction.

If used often enough, saves you gold and gives you even HP on top of that. Also, can be sold for a part of a price.

Yes, after like 11 uses Crystalline Flask becomes more efficient than pots, but you also have to realize your spending the same amount as a Long Sword, which is pretty huge early game

I don't think tear is good on any adc except Urgot and Ezreal if you go blue build
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!
