Lucian Strengths & Weaknesses

Heavy power spike at level two which allows him to run an enemy down with his Relentless PursuitE, Piercing LightQ combo. This combined with his Passive and Summoner Spells may easily get him a kill on a squishy target.

Really good wave clear with his Ardent BlazeW, Piercing LightQ and Ultimate The CullingR. This causes him to gain priority really fast and it also helps him secure objectives with his Jungler.

Post-six, he can practically one shot an enemy with his combo while simultaneously re-positioning with his Relentless PursuitE. His Relentless PursuitE also makes him quite slippery, which allows him to evade ganks with ease.


Very vulnerable when his Relentless PursuitE is down which can allow him to be very susceptible to ganks. Enemy Junglers can take this opportunity to camp him relentlessly.

Reliant on items to win the game. If he is set back during the early game, he won’t be able to do a lot in the late game as he just falls off.

If he manages to get an early lead, he may be able to snowball if left unchecked. He falls off massively though so the longer the game goes, the worse it is for Lucian.

Game plan
Early game
0 - 15 min
Lucian is Strong

Get level 2 first and look for a favourable trade with the enemy. Gaining an early health advantage will help you out.

Focus on farming and looking for aggressive plays once the enemy uses an ability. Play around their abilities and look to abuse their cooldowns with your early game damage.

After destroying the bottom lane tower, rotate to the mid lane and try to take that tower. This will open up the map and give your team a gold lead.

Mid game
15 - 25 min
Lucian is Strong

Stay with your Support throughout the mid-game. If you move away from them, you will be an easy target for the enemy. Make sure you’re always near at least 1 ally.

Group and stay with your team at all times. Do not split push or avoid grouping unless you have a good reason to be away from them.

Look for picks with your Support/Jungler to get kills and increase your lead. If you kill a key target, you could make the call for Baron.

Late game
25+ min
Lucian is Average

Stick with your team in the later parts of the game. If you walk away from them and die, it will be 4v5 and the enemy may be able to force a fight or end the game.

Focus the nearest enemy champion in team fights and watch your positioning. Hold on to your Relentless PursuitE for the right opportunity. Do not use it recklessly.

Stick towards the back of your team near the Support so they can peel and protect you.

Power Spikes
Early game0 - 15 min

Lucian's level 2 is a decent power spike as it allows him to go for a devastating all-in combo. The damage dealt is relatively high, and he can quite quickly kill the enemy with multiple combo rotations.

Level six is a significant powerspike, especially when Lucian is against an immobile carry. He should have an easy time clearing waves with it as well if he needs to recall.

The first item will be a massive power spike for Lucian as it allows him to deal a lot of damage. It will give him an inherent advantage, especially if he can capitalize on his level two power spike.

Mid game15 - 25 min

His first ability will be maxed out at level 9. This will give him a massive damage boost and will let him take over the mid-game easily.

Lucian is excellent during the mid-game as this is the time where he is the most powerful. He can get rid of squishy targets quickly.

At level 11, Lucian will be able to get his stage 2 Ultimate The CullingR. It can help him massively during neutral, objective fights and duels due to the amount of damage it dishes out.

Late game25+ min

Once Lucian unlocks his 3rd stage Ultimate The CullingR, he will be able to dish out tons of consistent damage, especially to low health targets. It will make it easier for him to burst down enemies.

Lucian will gain access to multiple items during this stage of the game. He will both be able to sustain himself, as well as deal hefty amounts of consistent damage.

Lucian's Piercing LightQ and Relentless PursuitE will be maxed out during this game stage. It will let him all-in enemies consistently and will allow him to reposition himself frequently.
