“Go under turret level 1, he will destroy you. Only go in on him if your jungle is ganking. Play to not feed and try to keep your farm up. ”
“Very difficult lane, he can dodge Lux's Q every time with his E. I'll get W 2nd for early trades (personally I value dealing less damage and taking none in return more than potentially dealing more damage but getting burst down). I just try to farm safely with E and go for a defensive build - Lost Chapter into Ninja Tabi into Seeker's Armguard into Luden's. Can also use E for poke but I won't go for passive procs.”
“Very annoying and deadly, especially with kraken slayer. Don't walk up into auto range or you will take half your health in damage. Spam for ganks or you will lose, it's essentially up to your jungler whether you win or not. Don't engage because he will E away from your E, you will never be able to hook him without taking massive amounts of damage, unless he's just standing in the open for no reason. Once you get ahead you can try to all in to kill him because you will have the damage to do so without hitting E, but you will have to hit everything else or you will die. Go tabi first item because you wont be hitting him anyways, plus having your jungler is more than enough to kill him even without dmg item. If your jungler refuses to come and you're not too far behind you can go prowlers to guarentee an E and probably a kill, but I don't recommend this because duskblade is way better out of lane. Go resolve secondary or you're going to have a horrible time.”
“Hard match up due to volatility of Lucian Player skill levels.
You either hard win this on virtue of ADC mid players being awful at the game, or automatically lose to a savant 1v9 smurf Lucian.
Otherwise, you outrange this champion and have a good counter play to his dash by holding Q.
You will shot him with any form of CC, but it's a "deadly" early match up.
BUILD SEEKERS IF LOSING.”
“Lucian is hard because he is ranged, so it's hard to poke him down, and he is very mobile so once he is on you, you can't get him off. He deals plenty of damage and is something to fear.”
“If he grabs any kind of lead the lane will be pretty hard to handle depending on how well they know the champ in the matchup there will be little to no chance for you to keep up.”
“Lucian is a hyper aggressive mid laner, just sit back until you can get ur armguard. You might want to run double armor. But after this and at 6 you start out trading him, Look for jungle help and if you can find a charm on him. All in.”
“This is just an extreme bully lane early, you won't be able to CS so don't even try and go for CS until you are lvl 3. Even if you have to drop two waves, whatever you do don't walk up. Make sure to be healthy and go for that level 3 trade.”
“Lucian is a very powerful early laner, and if left alone, he can completely poke you out of lane and make you irrelevant. A single jungle gank will help you survive this matchup. Try to farm as much as you can without getting poked out of lane. If you don't get too far behind, you quickly outpace him in fights. ”
“His high constant damage output and high mobility make him a dangerous lane opponent. Consider buying an early Seeker's Armguard. Don't be predictable with your Q, you need to hit it.”
