Lucian is a lane bully, he is going to look for fights or chances to get chunk damage onto you or your laner.
Lucian can reposition in fights very well with his Relentless Pursuit
. Relentless Pursuits’ cooldown is reduced by 1 second for each Lightslinger (Passive) shot landed, doubled to 2 seconds against enemy champions. This makes Lucian insanely mobile by effectively using his skill rotations, he can use it to dodge abilities and reposition in teamfights.
Lucians Piercing Light
can be used to farm, push the wave as well as poking you out of lane, be careful around low health minions as he may try to line it up to hit you as well.
Lucains range is low (500) and you can easily counter this by having higher range and auto attacking when he tries to grab CS.
The cooldown on Lucians
is very long early levels, try to abuse him when he doesn’t have his escape up. Save your CC abilities until this time as it increases the likelihood of you hitting them.
Once Lucian starts casting his
, you can either cancel it with hard CC such as a stun or a knockback. Each bullet of the
that hits you will stack his Black Cleaver making you weaker to the rest of his
Once Lucian gets Blade of the Ruined King he has a ton more chase potential and survivability with the active and lifesteal on the item, plus he gets damage and attack speed to pump out some more pain on top of it all.
Later into the game lucians
will be on a shorter cooldown. Along with his Passive reducing it. Basically, he will be dashing all over the fight if he rotates his spells correctly. Try to make aggressive plays when you know he will be unable to dodge it.
falls off in damage later on, but it is still a big deal. When he uses it, make sure you to dodge components of it so you do not take unnecessary damage.
