Tips Against Lucian in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors
Agatrium says “Lucian top is a pretty tough laner for almost any melee top. I will say this, however, if you catch him with Stridebreaker slow and get a full E and Q off, he dies very quickly. The biggest threat here is getting poked down hard during laning phase, which will happen, so try to obtain what farm you can and play back. ”
Dazlirn says “Lucian with a Nami could be very scary. Lucian is a very bursty champion and could match Draven's damage in lane. Exhaust would be a nice summoner spell against him.
But he isn't a very hard match up if you dodge his skillshots and cancel his ult.”
Sellsword says “Major with Nami but even then he's beatable. You must play safe and make sure to spellshield his Q. He's not that hard to outscale. There isn't really much more to it, if he has a support that doesn't work with him though (mostly mage supports), you can easily abuse his lack of range with your Q.”
King Turtle says “he has a similar style of play with his dash and weaving autos, but his chemistry with enchanters and tank supports alike will make early trades difficult if you're not careful of his sidekick.”
bive says “He can dodge Q, so save it. If u dodge his q u can force a short trade or zone. When his q is down, u can use E to force him to use E, then you can zone or he will take your Q when he goes for cs.”
Hocus Brokus says “He can dodge your abilities. Take w second because he will find an opening to proc his PTA. Farm and freeze if possible so your jungle can gank and put you ahead. (DO NOT GO IN FOR PASSIVE PROCS IF HE HAS E)”
Nom212 says “If Lucian has the balls for it he can mostly bully you out of the lane. You can block his Q Piercing Light but it doesn't impact his damage out-put greatly since a lot of the burst he has comes from his passive Lightslinger. He can proc Press The Attack almost instantly and overall has greater single target damage than you. You have a good chance to fight back if he uses his E Relentless Pursuit to get to you since he won't be able to use it to dodge your Q Boomerang Blade anymore.”
Alvatorz says “If Lucian is with a Nami, this could be much worse than if he's alone. Lucian is a lane bully that can bully poke champs like MF by forcing her to commit into bad trades. You can't really win a matchup against Lucian either 1v1 or 2v2. So be carefull, stay behind and keep poking him and wait for your items. He can easily go away from your ult with his dash tho.”
Amberdragon says “Lane bully with very strong trade, similar to Draven. As long as he is doing decent in the meta he is an bad matchup for Kai'sa. If you can survive the early game you can beat him though.”
IKeepItTaco says “◉ Lucian is a very feast or famine early game ADC, but funny enough Jinx is pretty good against him in lane and you’ll learn why!
◉ Lucian will try to jump and combo you constantly whenever you walk up for farm by using [[Relentless Pursuit]] in succession with [[Ardent Blaze]] and [[Piercing Light]]. Anytime he starts to look jumpy just step back and wait a bit.
◉ The reason why Jinx is pretty good against him in lane is because he’s very short ranged sitting at 500 range and also very predictable in the way he plays the laning phase out so just keep chugging rockets at him with [[Fishbones, the Rocket Launcher]] and you’ll be bullying him in no time.
◉ One very important thing to do is to make sure to poke him with rockets starting at level 1 if possible then secure level 2 and start poking him at level 2 as well. You can look back at the trading clip earlier in the guide because it’s the perfect example!
◉ Win Condition: Don’t let Lucian snowball. Play aggressively with your range advantage via [[Fishbones, the Rocket Launcher]]. Keep that distance between you and him and you’ll not only find him easy to deal with in lane, but outscale him very fast into the game.
Breathly says “Lucian nami is the strongest botlane in the game currently, that clearly means that Lucian will be a major threat for you. So here is the same deal with Draven, you out scale him throughout the lane but its way easier to lane against him than Draven.”
I Am Not u says “DO NOT LET HIM GET FIRST BLOOD ON YOU. Lucian snowballs like crazy. He has a dash, so he can escape you pretty easily, and his passive can be hard to fight against. You have to play the lane pretty passive if you wanna fight this guy and win. But if this guy doesn't take the early game, it's free EXP and gold for you.”
koog says “Gravitum is very good against him because he is so short ranged. You also outdamage him with chakram and severely outrange him with calibrum. Just don't put yourself in a position where you can get run down by the culling and you will be fine. ”
A_Drunk_Carry says “Not a fun matchup at first. Lucian can dash away or in, and pound you with his extra passive shots. You'll outdamage him after 2 items. Don't ult first, or he'll just dash away and smack you with his ult.”
Callmebee says “After losing his wife, the guy is seeking revenge. Mobile, bursty and he can dodge your Q easily, as his dash is on a low cooldown. Use your max range to farm and charge your Manaflow Band and play for teamfights or wait for jungle ganks as he will be squishy enough to one shot. Take barrier as it helps with his ult and RUUUUN!”
tokyodamonsta says “Very strong in lane, can easily dodge your feathers with e and flash. If the lucian is good it is pretty much impossible to 1v1. Play around your support to beat him. You OUTSCALE!”
WayOfTheTempesst says “Lucian has one of the best lanes in the game and his high mobility counters Ziggs stationary playstyle. Although he is mostly played in solo lanes, botlane Lucian is still a threat to Ziggs.”
LostFishEU says “Lucian's early game outmatch Vayne's early game by quite the amount. Lucian has one of the strongest short trades in the game with his combos. Lucian can dash from the wall when you use your Condemn. The only chance you will have vs Lucian is a longer fight and when you get a stun on him with Condemn. Why I put him at Major and not Extreme is because you can dodge Lucian's Q if you time your Tumble well, making the fight more even.”
Coldsong says “Lucian is annoying to face, but he has shorter range which means engaging on him is not too bad. If you bait out his E and his support has no CC up, go for an all in. Even though Samira falls off, she is still way better late game than Lucian as well. Make sure to save your W for his ultimate and try to get out of his line of sight.”
Vapora Dark says “On paper, Lucian is one of the harder matchups for Jhin. Endless mobility, great poke and can all in on a whim. But in practice, with proper spacing and usage of your 4th shot you can outrade him and because he has less auto range than you he'll usually be dashing in to trade, meaning his mobility is cut AND your movement buff from whisper allows you to disengage. Never try to 1v1 him though, he can still destroy you if he's not behind. In lane, avoid getting Q poked down so position awkwardly behind creeps and don't take extended trades. Lucian is one of the best champs to use fervor on and if he can stack that up he will destroy you. Play a slow game vs him and you'll come out on top”
Amberdragon says “His laning phase is ridiculously strong. Look to play safe and play for the late game, you outscale him. Don't trade with him unless he wastes his habilities. You can poke him with Q and E because of his short range, but don't commit unless you have a strong support to back you up. If he focuses you, back away. Just farm and scale. Consider taking exhaust in this matchup. Use your ultimate to dodge his. Respect his early game.”
Odysseus The Warmaster says “Can pretty much burst you all early game and dodge any hooks your support may have. With having an early lead, he should always eclipse you in farm and it's so annoying to always be playing catch-up. Should fall off late game but still a total pain ngl”
MouayadD says “lucian works as both poke if you don't pay attention and catch, he also have the safety avoid sticky situations, so you'll have to avoid being behind minions while poking him, and once he uses e that's a perfect time to hard engage”
angata500 says “Be careful if you are ever alone in lane because he wins the 1v1 100%. Take in mind his dash as he will usually use it in lane to punish you . Another thing to watch out for would be his Q as it can pass through minions for a longer range, try to stay to the side of the minions.”
R3Veal says “Really annoying to play against as he can easily dodge your W. You can't escape his ultimate so easy because of your lack of mobility. His dash lets him trade with you and then retreat really fast.”
Urason says “Both of you are looking to deal a lot of damage early on. This is a game of who can land more of their abilities. It favors Lucian but it's not hard to win it. Just be careful and don't give him a lead or he may stomp you. ”
LilPaniniUwU says “As a traditional online bully, Lucian sacrificed his mid- and late-stage powers in exchange for putting everyone in the line phase. Lucian has excellent wave clearing ability, excellent drive, excellent trading, excellent all-in, excellent commitment tracking ability, and excellent mobility to ensure that he is protected from confrontation. In addition to clearing the waves, he is in most respects. They're both a bit worse than Draven, but his added mobility makes him safer, and he's better at abusing his clues when he has clues, especially when he generally breaks the wasted king's sword, which also allows him to slowly force a kill and . When his line cannot be easily forcibly involved, Lucian will generally lose to a line further away than him, or he may lose to a stronger all-in duo.
yers says “Almost like vayne, he can easily dodge your abilities, usually initiating as he does so. Keep your E unless you are making a long range poke combo on him so that in case he does close on you, you can push him away or stun him. Earlygame his dash has a long CD, so if he uses it early catch him with a stun combo. You can pressure him to use his dashes earlier by using W, has basically the same psychological effects like E”
cakiens says “most of Obama's damage comes from his q and his autos. stand in places where his q cant reach you and farm to your heart's content and when he goes in q him and make his double tap useless.”
Inoriboob says “Passive is important to avoid, trade will out damage you if don't wait for passive or q and e combo. Late game he continues to be a monster as the changes made him stronger w enchanters.”
HyroPyro says “Lucian has high base damage with his abilities and can poke you down with his Lightslinger (Passive) and Piercing Light (Q) through the minions. Make sure you and your support capitalise on his Relentless Pursuit (E) cooldown if your support has a hook or cc. He highly relies on weaving his passive Lightslinger and abilities for damage. ”
im_zeno says “He's already cringe to play against in mid lane. You CANNOT wind wall his Q but only his autos and ult, he has a dash to dodge your E Q and can easily punish you for it so save it till he uses his E. His damage is WAYYYYYYY higher than yours. Overall just hard to deal with. Play safe till you have berserks and zeal, the only thing you can do is to rely on your support. DO NOT be the one to engage in lane, remember that.”
Vispectra says “Rough , very rough lane. Don't advise Kassadin into this unless you're sure you know what you're doing. I'd start Doran's Shield into this match up. However , once you hit mid game he won't be a problem anymore for you as you'll be able to burst him down. Don't hesitate to ping for help or slip into side-lanes later on to make up for the lost CS and EXP you'll have suffered in lane. Any adc will make your life hell in lane.”
snowcard says “Lucian is also a primarily auto-attacking champion (surprise) so his passive is devastating for Sivir. He can dash your Q easily, so I would reccomend a support with CC to lock him down (or bait his E so you can hit him).
What you can block: His Q, W, and one bullet of his R. ”
qosmox says “Contest the push early on while soaking some of his dmg with your shield. Avoid getting close to him every time his double-shot is available. He’ll only have really scary dmg if he uses his E to chase after you, but that’s also when you have your chance to go back at him. If he dashes forward while you have both W and E up you can taunt him and use W to deny him while pummeling him with emp. Q’s and you should win the trades. And if he doesn’t E onto you, then just farm. He’s the one that wants to punish you early on and if he’s not able to do that you’ll have more impact later on.”
singed best adc says “On toplane he is pain if you play Singed, but with a Yuumi on you he's an easy target at level 6. Your E stops his ultimate, he cant dash on grounding and Lucian player always go mental if you shittalk them.”
Trieuloo says “We have to be careful of this lane due to being able to dash across veigar cage. This causes you to need very good ability management to be able to win this lane in higher elos. However, in lower elos you can just cage and the lucian can not react fast enough to dash out.”
Ekezun says “Many of his long range abilities are skillshots so try to avoid alot of damage by dodging said skillshots, try to stand on the same side as him so he has a harder time to harass you with his Q”
FunkyBeagle says “Lucian has ridiculous amounts of all in potential and he has way better short trading potential than Kai'Sa. Lucian has a super strong early game, where as Kai'Sa doesnt. Take Exhaust into this one.”
lenithebot says “Although it seems like this matchup would seem impossible for Jhin since Lucian has a lot of mobility and great early game burst if you play around your fourth shot and abilities you can even out trade im in lane. If the Lucian makes mistakes try and punish them but dont over comit and give him a lead. Just farm up and out-scale him. Make sure though to never duel Lucian ever unless you are insanely ahead you will just get destroyed.”
KoZee says “Lucian is somewhat weak to Varus due to his low range in comparison. You should be able to zone him. However, if he gains a lead he can burst you fairly hard due to his synergy with Kraken Slayer. Overall though, he shouldn't be a huge threat unless fed.”
Jurassiq says “Lucian is imo your strongest counter. He has the tools needed to counter you in lane. He out damages you in all ins, can easily beat you in short trade, and can push you in.
You outscale him around 2 items, but if the Lucian is the same level as you skill-wise he should beat you in lane.
Your goal is to farm and land Q's on him whenever you can. If he does mess up, you can look to follow up on your support and all in.”
ThreeEyed says “put lucian at the top because i dont want to put that many adcs flash is mostly the only way you kill these guys early
if its a good lucian you are fucked he is gonna hold his e as long as possible but if he wastes it to proc pta go hard on that motherfucker”
T0nn says “Depends on laning phase. after he gets few dmg items in worst mythic before you. You cant do much. You outscale but you need to get there. Early threat after your 2 items he shouldve been dealt with.”
XD001 says “Annoying, but playable. Levels 1-5 just play passive, don't force any plays that can possibly back fire. You will be able to 1 shot him soon enough. Once you get hextech rocketbelt you can kill Lucian on cooldown. In teamfights its the same thing. Squishies that have little mobility are Ekko's favorite.
electrocute + sorcery + ignite”
Xayaphelia says “This is another matchup I enjoy playing. Lucian has a lot of tools to mess you up in lane but you can play around them and still do very well against him. Even if Lucian gets fed you can just power farm and out scale him. GG EZ”
ooftheiii says “His ult can be used while he's moving, so watch out as he may try to kite you. His damaging skills have long range and are mostly skill shots, so awareness and good dodging skills are important. Lucian cannot change the aim of The Culling. Take advantage of this by avoiding the angle of the bullets. Attempt to stay on the same side of the creep wave as Lucian, e.g if he stands to the left, stand to the left. This will give him a much harder time with harassing you using Piercing Light.”
kingamazin says “Lucian isn't really that great of a bot laner right now, and his extremely low range makes it easy to harass him with rockets. Focus on playing on one of the sides of your minion wave and continue to reposition to avoid getting poked down by his q through the minion wave, which is his only reliable way to poke you down. If he dashes into you, switch to minigun and try to hit him with your w while he's locked in his q animation or while he's autoing you. Once you get more levels in your q, it becomes increasingly difficult for lucian to lane against you as you continue to gain a greater range advantage. ”
Bluestrat says “Lucian is not often seen on the botlane anymore, but he is still a strong laner. His short trades are extremely effective, which Kai'sa can't keep up with at first. However, Lucian is not (yet) a good 1v1 champion in the early game. With our Q-EVOLVE we can create an advantage and defeat Lucian in the lane. ”
Trampedach says “Hard early on but post six you're evenly matchup. Don't try to auto q trade early because of his superior early game trading but you will be able to stomp him if you don't lose too hard early on. ”
Bluestrat says “Lucian wird zwar nicht mehr oft auf der Botlane gesichtet, jedoch ist er immer noch ein starker Laner. Seine kurzen Trades sind extrem wirkungsvoll, bei der Kai'sa zunächst nicht mithalten kann. Lucian ist aber im Early Game (noch) kein guter 1v1 Champion. Mit unserem Q-EVOLVE können wir uns einen Vorteil schaffen und Lucian in der Lane besiegen. ”
ctm20141 says “He's a nightmare pre lv 6: he has too much burst for you to handle. His AA-Q is a bit stronger than your AA-Q-EMP AA. Careful to not get poked by his Q. Careful for lv 2 sudden all ins: Lucian is famous for having one of the strongest lv 2 all ins in the game. At lv 3 is when he gets his W: it's a spell that may seem weak damage wise, but its utility is very strong for chasing you down! You WILL SUFFER HARD PRE LV 6 IF HE'S GOOD. At lv 6, if you aren't already too far behind, you can look for an all in. All ins vs lucian are always pretty risky: YOU NEED TO "CANCEL" HIS ULTI from the equation, either by using your Q or by using your E. IF YOU EAT A FULL LUCIAN ULTI HE WILL KILL YOU WITH JUST THAT SPELL ALONE! On the contrary, if you can dodge/cancel his ulti and you Condemn him on the wall, he's 100% dead.
Give him one kill and your lane is over.
He's Draven 2.0: he has huge kill pressure. Watch out!”
Remmacs1 says “Lucian is pretty good at catching you off guard when you don't have the right gun setup. This means that he can look to punish you whenever he feels like it. Look to only fight him when you have good gun set up for combos.”
lolkayleee says “Doran's Shield.
Okay normally this lane would be pretty hard. But unlike Vayne or Akshan, Lucian doesn't scale very well and doesn't provide anything other than damage for his team. For Lucian to be effective he has to play aggro. If your jungler ever comes he's just dead. You win when you have Tri Force. ”
McNugglz says “Farm lane. Cull start. Another champion to take exhaust against. Taking exhaust can lower the difficulty you have against Lucian. Avoid Q poke through minions and look to engage when he uses E. ”
Zammey says “Heavily out trades you in lane and can easily burst you mid game, avoid 1v1s play for farm early and focus on scaling to 2-3 items only taking fights if you have a number advantage lane outcome almost entirely based on the support each player has”
Dank672 says “His early damage can prove difficult to deal with if his supp can force an all in. However you can poke him out and without an aggressive supp you can usually just walk away from an all-in should he try one. You also outscale him.”
DSpinz says “I would ban this champ nonstop if he was more commonly played, he can freely engage you and win trades. your best bet is to just dash away as he dashes towards you. Wait for ganks and shove waves out as they come to you.”
Dannala says “Top/Mid: Squish and semi-weak early, if you got Electrocute you could easily snowball on his mistakes. Rappeling as he dashes will deny a lot of damage and gives you your biggest chance to retaliate, if not best to retreat.
Bottom: If you got a burst combo bot your best bet is all inning, if he survives you will be in trouble so might be safer to farm, especially if he got something like Lulu with him.”
EvoNinja7 says “Lucian can literally just kill you in two abilities and two auto's pre-level 6. When level six comes along, you have more survivability with your ultimate but he can kill you in about three abilities (including his ult). He has a decent amount of mobility with his E dash, making it hard to all-in him or even gank him. Try to position behind minions, minimising the amount of damage his Q can do and try to poke him when you can. Don't misposition or your dead.”
CastratedSeal says “Lucian can dodge your bubble with his dash. If he's paired with an aggressive support, his early lane power can easily bubble over into multiple kills in lane. Start Relic Shield, and consider taking Guardian if he's being supported by something aggressive.”
Scrimm says “Lucian can be scary early on, since his passive with Press the Attack allows him to win many trades early on. Don't stand in a line with minions so you don't take free Q damage, and if he uses his R just use yours to get behind him so you don't take damage from it.”
AmericanNut says “Range will eat you alive. All there is to it, be careful of his kit. He will dodge your with his dash tongue lash. He will only ult when you're within critical condition. Your E should help, if he ults while close, punish him by walking behind him.”
SkittleBtw says “I rate this dude as extreme, if he's played by someone with a brain, you will be molested off your creeps all day long, or die trying to get them. If he doesn't know how to play Lucian, you might be gucci, but still be careful. This dude poops out damage early.”
pandorelol says “Skill match up, be aware of his positionning in lane so you don't get poked down by his Q. The first to get Kraken usually will win the game, as it will deepen the scaling difference between the 2. Do not fight him alone.”
jhoijhoi says “Lucian is a harass heavy ADC who uses skill shots to trigger his passive for two attacks. His short range dashes can allow him to get in close or dodge your ultimate. However he has 100 less range than Ashe letting you auto-attack him when he wants to farm creeps.”
Veloxus says “Lucian will out DPS Jhin in early game fights. Try not to let Lucian proc his passive and PTA on you often or you will be in big trouble. Use your longer range to poke him from a distance.”
GodMulti says “It can be hard to lane against him in the very early game. I would suggest you to pick comet against him and try to bait his dash before ulting. If possible ask your supp to play a Cc/Hook supporter.”
SINKEMALL says “Lucian can easily all-in you because of his passive, so try to stay at max distance and E out if he's going in on you. Be wary of standing in line of his Q, as he can Q through minions to poke you. You will outscale him provided he doesn't also build manamune. ”
Bouhhsolene says “He might win trades early/mid game, but you generally win late (except if he's really fed). Just survive his all in and you're all good. Also try to W if he used E, then you win trades.”
SweatMeALake says “Lucian is high in burst damage, and is very mobile. Avoid exchanges with him in lane as he wins almost every trade. Punish his positioning if his E is on cooldown and make sure you don't get caught out of position as well. He can also dodge your ultimate with his E ability. ”
Spection says “VERY COMMON. Lucian is kind of a strange ADC. Boasting worse damage than Ezreal and one sort of dash, a watered down miss fortune ultimate and no CC, he can't really deal with Pantheon. Just lock him down with the help of your support and you should get fed really really fast.”
ShroudedBRH says “Use your range to poke and deter him from trying to all in he will try to land his full combo on you and bully you in lane just play back outside his range. You will out scale him later in the game”
Camelorry says “A smart Lucian player can play around your w and kite you very effectively, plus you can't block his q and that's his main poke resource during laning phase, which will hurt you a lot due to your short range. Try your hardest to block his r or his combo with your w.”
Kdrama says “Most lucians are really bad and he's not that good right now in the bot lane, so you shouldn't be worried about facing him. If you do happen to face him, just wait for him to waste his q on the wave, then you can e in and just win the trade. ”
StriveHD79 says “
High burst ADC, he has a dash and abilities that let him weave in many autoattacks which other ADCs cannot do. Do not let him get close, keep your distance otherwise you will get run down.”
StriveHD79 says “Another low range ADC, this should be a fairly easy lane again, you want to try to harass him whenever he goes for last hits on creeps. He should realistically never be able to get ontop of you as long as you do not waste your net (E abilitiy). His dash (E ability) is his only way of getting to you so save your net for that. Do not let him all in you from full hp.”
StriveHD79 says “High burst ADC. Make sure to do your normal trade pattern, AA + W or W + AA then back off. He should not be able to all in you. If he tries to just slowly kite back while using your Q Autos + W. You should be able to keep your distance with your volley (W ability). He will have very high burst if he does manage to get on top of you.”
StriveHD79 says “High burst ADC, he has a dash and abilities that let him weave in many autoattacks which other ADCs cannot do. Do not let him get close, keep your distance otherwise you will get run down. You will outscale him after 3 items.”
StriveHD79 says “High burst ADC, he has a dash and abilities that let him weave in many autoattacks which other ADCs cannot do. Another support dependant matchup, but you should win 1v1s at all times against him before he completes first two crit item.”
StriveHD79 says “Another ADCarry that out damages you in most stages of the game, his all in range is smaller than Tristana but still a great threat that will kill you with ease. Keep your distance from Lucian at all times and you will out scale him and be more useful for teamfights. ( If you are both at 3 items you will be much more useful in teamfights )”
KXNGLXXVII says “he can straight up murder you level 2 so just respect his early damage and try not to get too crazy. w one of his abilities or the passive after to lower his damage output by quite a bit. wait for your support to land cc and its not too bad. ”
Spider Shaped says “Много урона и неплохая мобильность,лучше старайтесь не нарыватся на него. Если вдруг что,то перепрыгивайье с помощью e через стены,враг как минимум потратит флеш что бы догнать вас.”
Stiwy says “I hope you will never face him in toplane, really, he can poke you, chase you, dodge all you can launch, you just have to sit under tower and cry while trying to CS.
Jokes aside, buy tabis and try to stay as safe as possible.
Take conquer and aim to be a useful tank when teamfights break out.
Start with D.Shield for a little bit of sustain and consider taking Second wind instead of bone plating.
You can't do much in this lane, just hope the jungler remembers that toplane exists.”
StriveHD79 says “High burst ADC, he has a dash and abilities that let him weave in many autoattacks which other ADCs cannot do. Do not let him get close, keep your distance otherwise you will get run down.”
snukumz says “If he's good then he's very annoying because he can easily dodge your skillshots with his dash.
His Q poke has a deceptively long range so watch out for that.
If you snare him he's an easy kill because he's squishy and you do a lot of burst damage.
Be wary of his ult since you have no way of getting away from it on your own except for flash. ”
Terrific says “Lucian is in Extreme because it is a Skill match up. you most likely want to take Exhaust against him if you actually always wanna win on 1 on 1 trades but eitherway the one that gets ahead will win.
Keep an eye on his cooldowns and that way you might be able to win.”
Trisien says “His early game power is nothing to sneeze at, especially when paired with a good support, however you can use his low range to your advantage and cancel his ult with your E, so he becomes a bit more manageable.”
xSEASeahawks12 says “Some argue that Kalista counters Lucian, but I personally disagree with this opinion. His all in's are second to none among ADC's, and that coupled with hard CC is Kalista's kryptonite. Freeze in front of your tower, and only try to trade if he uses his Q to farm, as that drops his damage significantly. If he ults, use Pierce+Martial Poise horizontally to try to get out of its way. Unfortunately, if he has his E still, this maneuver is rendered useless and you get to soak up everything if no one wants to peel.”
just Ashe main says “Because of his passive! Lucian only needs 2 or 1 attack speed item and he can go full ad with ninja boots that it'll be so hard to play against him! But wait till he uses his Q then start fight him and remember!! Stay behind your minions cause minions helps alot ”
MayeLeven says “He can poke you with his Q, W or with his passive auto-attacks. You can try to trade with him, but do it carefully, becouse he can make a big damage becouse of his passive. Try to fight him after level 6, becouse of his E.”
Midorima says “This is a skill match up if you have the reaction time and prediction of a god. But on an even playing field, Lucian's lane pressure and lane bully status will usually destroy Vayne.
To win this match up: You have to always be conscious of where you stand in lane to avoid Q and W. You have to perfect the dodging of his Q with your Q. And Its also very support match up reliant.”
black wolfr22 says “Be careful if you are ever alone in lane because he wins the 1v1 100%. Take in mind his dash as he will usually use it in lane to punish you . Another thing to watch out for would be his Q as it can pass through minions for a longer range, try to stay to the side of the minions.”
Quezel says “Lucian is seeing a lot more play top and like any other ranged bully top he is really brutal to lane against early game play as passively as possible and just farm safely with q after seekers and tabi you can march him down with your ult just make sure to save your q and e until after he dashes.”
ZERO Destructo says “He can poke you through minions with his Q, and avoid your traps and stun with his E. Try to bait him to use E before you start the trade. Safest play against him is to just avoid fights and farm, until you get a gank. However, in late game you will easily two-shot him.”
Nik7857 says “Lucian is good at short quick trades. He will q aa and then get out before you even get an auto in. Luckily your late game is pretty much just as bad as his. Play this one safe and be extra careful if they have engage support.”
ReallyBoring says “He is weaker, however if hes with a hook champion it doesn't really matter. He wont try to trade so try to hit him with a quick W auto when he goes for farm. Try not to get hooked because if he gets ahead he can snowball just as fast as you.”
Eccentricks says “Lucian is an Early/Mid game monster whose only weak point is later in the game when he falls off a little. Sadly, your early game is when you suffer the most. His casts will have no mercy and if they connect, you consider yourself dead. Just be sure not to get destroyed and punish him later in the game. Only fight him if you have help from your support AND jungler. They only reason isn't a 5 is that late game (which I have said quite a lot now, just to drive the point home).”
Falllol says “A Vayne consegue abusar do Lucian pois ele precisa chegar nela para bater por falta da range , e ela consegue dar desengage , alem de poder desviar do Q dele e escalar muito mais a longo prazo .”
dravenplayer99 says “Because of Lucians high mobility this is a bit of a pain in the ass. He can easily dodge your ult if hes fast to react, and with a hook champion he will without a doubt win trades against you. ”
Laverenz says “Farm up early, try to make your jungler gank your lane. He will overpower you early-game so don't try to fight him. After level 6 you will have a 50% chance of winning a fight. If you dodge his Q and his Ult damage, you can win, but be comfortable.”
haloboleon says “Although Senna has a weak early game, strong early champs are very weak vs her since she can just out sustain their trades and make it very easy to get by the laning phase without dying a single time. Just play passive and go for cs.”
MewlingRavenPaw says “Farm till you reach your one item power-spike and then use your ultimate to engage into grabbing dragon. Another thing that prevents this early game bully from going to a Major threat or Extreme threat is your ability to dodge his Q by sidestepping with your passive. Play around him engaging on your support by forcing him to get antsy by staying out of his AA range. His dash is a 22 second CD as well so he's pretty easy to shut down believe it or not. ”
corvy says “lvl 2 PTA fighter like you. be carefull here, he has more dmg then you and its guaranteed unlike your W
he will look for PTA trades where he double auto attacks you and you will lose almost all your health.
talk to your duo look for the pic early but if it doesnt work you need to kite it out well. you can also bait their early agression so they take minion and then look to go in
be cautious of him at all times”
minepro221 says “He does a bit better in lane, as his full combo outdamages your's if he does not face tank your W. However, if he tanks your W, you can kill him. He does fall off later on, so play passive and only fight when it is free.”
Eucalyptus says “Just run. Just hide. You are gonna have to play safe and scale while wishing you picked Vayne or Jinx. Once you do reach 3 items he gets absolutely molested, so if you can deal with 15-25 minutes of aids, then you can have some fat freelo.”
The Jhin Cena says “Lucian isn't too difficult to deal with. The only thing I can say to watch out for is when you ult, make sure he cannot reach you with his since that'd put you very vulnerable to soaking up the entire ult.”
HikariGames says “Lucian can either be a free lane, or your biggest counter. I consider this one a skill matchup personally. His biggest advantage over you is his chase potential with his dash+ult. He rely's on winning lane to win out versus Jhin in the late game though, so just don't feed and you're good.”
IPodPulse says “Stay away from angles that can get you hit by piercing light. Press the attack will make his damage more significant, so take that into consideration when trading with him. He has a dash, so you can try to predict it, or you can bait it out with hail of arrows.
Press the attack will increase his ability damage by a lot, take that into consideration when trading.”
Righteous Maniac says “You can probably one shot him late game and kite him into oblivion. However, he will make you his bitch early game if he and his support catch you out of position. So hold your E and farm through the early game till you outscale him.”
GORE Klabok says “Lucian is the kind of Adc like draven and jhin. he can blow-up kalista once lvl 3 in only 1 spell rotation, i mean in 1v1 actually , he can burst more than any Auto-attack base champion (Adc/Fighter) at lvl 3. some people gonna say im wrong but its all about how fast he can cast then disengage.Always remember that lucian require his every cooldown ready to Actually takedown kalista each time. Best way to prevent lucian from beeing fed is to get him lvl 1 - 2 even 3 if you took him low. once you get a kill before his first Attack damage item and his lvl 3. you should win lane.Lucian very late game also have a powerspike of hell once he build cleaver bork and any other lethality or armor Penetration item.Once he get health left % dmg from blade of the ruined king , Blackcleaver whish is removing 30% of total armor and also lethality item or lastwhisper/Lord dominik regard. none can even 1v1 him anymore. i mean exept in Rare Case when top laner is TFblade playing Irelia or jax beeing 10/0/0. Even at thispoint you can win. All about Ruining lucian lane phase. Extreme threat because of his late game Win rate. Would say Major threat level once lvl 3. The worst lvl 1 Adc Due to long Cooldown from (Q). if you see a player starting with dash (E) at lvl 1 , its even worst for him, janna can even beat him at this point.”
Math Eon says “Lucian is probably the most difficult match for Ashe. He wins short and long trades due to his passivem and Press the Attack. Make sure to punish him with W+A when his E is on cooldown. ”
SlashLion says “Lucian has much more mobility than you and can make his level 2 advantage count for a lot with his passive double shots and press the attack. Very dangerous lane but if played right can result in a win for you.”
MallisTheGreat says “The most Lucian can do is dash to you with his E then walk towards you while damaging you (either with basic attacks or his ultimate). Just cast your E between you two whenever he is engaging and poke him down so that he doesn't engage and you are pretty much set.”
Vortiris says “He hurts, he is mobile, and he is out for some fried chicken. Watch out for his Relentless Pursuit before pulling in your feathers mid and late game, as he most probably already maxed it out. He will be quite tanky late game, making him close to impossible to kill. End the game as early as possible, or ban him.”
Numresunw says “He can be a little annoying but as he has double auto he will come close to try to hit you once every time, make sure you give an auto too and try to stack the poison before exploting it.”
Shacolada says “Lucian is a hard counter to Jhin. His ultimate can be utilized while he's moving, so watch out as he may try to kite you. His damaging skills have long range and are mostly skill shots, so awareness and excellent dodging skills are vital.
Watch out for his Q in the lane as it can pass through minions for a more extended range, try to stay to the side of the minions.
Attempt to stay on the same side of the creep wave as Lucian, e.g. if he stands to the left, stand to the left. This will give him a much harder time with harassing you using Piercing Light.”
Gun God Mike says “For Lucian the major risk is when he angage at level 3+, his combo can kill you in few seconds,to caunter him and stack safely just wait your support for an engage and put e under him.Late is lesser than early against him.”
BL00dY3nD says “This dude can just do so much against you. If he R you cant run behind him. His passive will deal so much damage to you. He can dodge with his E and can get out of your range with his E. I got big problems egainst him maybe you do better...”
Niculae01 says “It's a burst champ, which means that you will take a lot of damage against him in early game. If you get scared and don't fight you will have to play under the tower for the first 10 minutes. Play safe and wait for level 6 to out range him with your ult + flash to dodge his ult.”
Xerxes Is ADC says “he's nothing, his abilities will hindering his auto attacks and you'll be able to out trade him. Try to get your items before he does and you'll win lane. predict where he dashes when you cc him. ”
xTheUnlimited says “Right now he is pretty dangerous with his high all-in damage. You can poke him with some auto attacks, but take care - he can use the fact that you have to step up to auto him to all-in you. ”
FelipeGustavo says “avoid standing on the backs of the footmen in your direction, the Q
Lucian ability will hit you.But you can counterattack using E And when he uses your R. Punish him whenever he is in his range.
NorToXz says “Fairly stronger than you. Early-game and late-game is dangerous, but outplays will make Lucian go down (dodge skills and abilites). You can for excample jump behind him and ult him to your turret if he tries to ult you.”
KinkyGaren says “Lucian is a very high meta ADC right now and as such needs to be respected, he has a very powerful early game as opposed to your weak beginning. He pumps out more autos and damage than you in trades so beware engaging his low attack range.”
B34STLYG4M3R says “Lucian is very similar to you, except he is strong early game and weaker late game. He wins every single trade, and even makes better use of your first couple of items then you do. Do not duel him unless you are far ahead or about 4 items in. ”
Statix20dan says “His entire kit lets him get extra MS when attacking marked enemies (from W) and extra dmg after every ability used. His ult can be extremely difficult to dodge as Jhin is quite immobile early-mid game.”
qasddsa says “Be careful of his strong level 2 powerspike with his support. He has close to your damage mid game, but late game he starts to fall off to your damage, since it's not as consistent. He can be a teamfight threat with his ultimate, but as long as your team has CC it can be quickly shut down.”
Komrad says “Lucian, al ser un ADC de Early con daño en rafaga masivo y una excelente capacidad de duelo, puede hacerte la partida bastante dificil, sin embargo al Late no llega a ser tan fuerte como tu”
weinerman says “hah, pathetic, his e lets him dodge qs kinda ez but think of it this way instead: he either has to save his e/get his minions or take a bunch of damage. ALMOST scary to fight mid to late game 1 on 1 unless you wait for him to e first. you should probably wait for him to use his e before poking/poking back. (unless you wanna zone him off or something)”
Best Tactics EU says “Lucian does have an edge on you, you won't be able to win 1v1's and sometimes you will die and he will snowball. However if you play it right he is a good example of how you can push and go even against him.
First of all you outscale him, so you got that part down, what you want to do is W every wave, ideally u have a support that also helps pushing. If he depush with W or Q you can Q the minion wave too, this way you push faster then he does. If he doesn't use any speels you still push faster with just W alone. If you repeat this you will slowly poke him down. Also at some point he will get frustrated because he wanna win the lane, so he will E into you, but you will still have your E/Q up, so it should be an even trade.”
MeSad says “It sort of a skill match-up. Normally Lucian dashes in and procs his passive on you but as long as you Q he shouldn't be able to get his press the attack off and you can weave in a few autos yourself. ”
undeadsoldiers says “Stay away from your minions to avoid Q poke.
He can use his E to dodge your E, but its cooldown (barring lots of passive procs) is really long so you have a window to punish him for blowing it if he uses it aggressively or defensively.
Careful of his ult when you're low.
Suggested: Armguard rush if having trouble”
Seigemaster035 says “Wins the early game very hard. hard to trade with and bursts you down easily. Fleet is highly recommended in this matchup. Although you out scale be careful of where you go out of stealth because if given the chance he will kill you.”
Robin Banks says “Even lane before his cuitlass/bork purchase. After that you'll need to rely on Q/W Poke. Save E for when he slows you. Do not use E to proc your w. He will murder you for it. I think you outscale Lucian, but some other people may disagree. ”
Nittwerp says “You won't be able to duel lucian untill you hit your core items. Don't ever try to solo him if you haven't reach your powerspike because when lucian rushes BORK you can't win. So I advice to fight either 2v2's or don't fight him at all.”
koyomilikesbloods says “He can all-in you pretty well, but you can poke him out of lane completely as long as you position correctly in lane. If you can't stand between then ranged and melee and or poke with q then don't get too close to him. If he can dash to you, you are too close.”
