So guys,

I'd like to start a thread where Lulu can generally be discussed.

I played 2 games with her so far, and I must say I am pretty disappointed. I feel that she has options as AD Carry, AP Carry, Support and Jungler but she excels it none of them. Now before I get all the haters on me, I know I played only 2 games with her so probably I just suck with her atm, but I'd like to know how other people play her.

Go ahead! :)

I like her alot, haven't played alot of games yet obviously but she seems nice to me. I mean she just has basically anything: slow, disrupt, move speed up, shield, heal (ultimate heals when below max hp), vision on 1 enemy, knockup. Her Range with Glitterlance is awesome, due to the fact that you can shoot Help, Pix! at an enemy just in your range and then fire your lance at a fleeing Enemy behind him, which basically doubles your Range (although that is fairly hard to pull of I have managed it a few times)

I play her as kind of an AP Carry with Nashor's Tooth, Mercury's Treads, Rylai's Crystal Scepter, Will of the Ancients and Rabadon's Deathcap. I'm pretty undecided on the last item, i know it should be something defensive but i really like how Wit's End looks on her with even more magic dmg (and it DOES have magic resist). Any thoughts on that? I mean the obvious would be something like Banshee's Veil or Guardian Angel

Well I played some more games, here is what I used as build:

Ionian Boots of Lucidity, Shurelya's Reverie, Sight Ward, Aegis of the Legion. After that come situational items, I have tried Chalice of Harmony, Rod of Ages, Will of the Ancients and I would like to try out Rabadon's Deathcap and Rylai's Crystal Scepter.
But I am also considering a more tanky last 2 items such as Banshee's Veil + Randuin's Omen.

In my opinion she does not work as AP Carry because only Q and E deal damage. AD Carry is lousy because it only works well with her passive, but if you use your E on an AD Carry that is solved too. Since I can't jungle for ****, I will probably remain playing her as support.

Rylai's would be pretty wasted on her. Only two of her spells can do damage, they aren't spamable, and one of them already has a better slow. If you want HP and AP, go for Rod of Ages.

Nashor's Tooth is my favourite item at the moment. I imagine on-hit-effect items being extremely useful here. First off, Malady. If you are actually playing her as straight support though, just go basic support items. I always try supports as damage at some point, most the time I prefer not support.

Mid Soraka/ Lulu like a boss.

Makes me wonder, does Pix apply on-hit effects? :D

Also she has a lot of mana trouble. In a teamfight, I usually run out of mana before the teamfight is over, so I am thinking to add Rod of Ages to my standard build. Final item could be Zeke's Herald or Will of the Ancients, depending on what the team needs.

How about this for an item build:

Faerie Charm, Philosopher's Stone, Ionian Boots of Lucidity, Rod of Ages, Aegis of the Legion, Shurelya's Reverie, Will of the Ancients, Sight Ward

OR

Faerie Charm, Philosopher's Stone, Mercury's Treads/ Ninja Tabi, Rod of Ages, Aegis of the Legion, Shurelya's Reverie, Zeke's Herald, Sight Ward

Sounds nice to me :)

I can't make myself run an AP based champion with very little AP, even if it is a support/tank.

Playing as a aggressive support.

Skill Q first, E second and just pick 1 point in W at lvl 3..
Cast E on a creep and use Q after, Lulu is the master of poke. Managed to constantly harass the support+AD carry with this combo..

Start with boots, 2nd Philisopher stone and 3rd Rabbadons.

Lulu is amazing :D

Marks: Magic pen
Quints: Flat AP
Seals: Gold/10

Imo, she should be iether played like AP Utillity carry (like Zilean), or as a Orianna support who doesnt take aura items but goes for AP stuff.

Either way, it takes some time to figure her out, seems viable though.

Extremely useful. She basically has an AP and AD buff in two different spells. Also has shield and great CC, one that is basically 2.5 second blind+silence. Then she has a giant health buff for anybody. Extremely viable, even top tier, I dare say.
