Tips Against Lucian in Bottom Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

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. ”

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.”

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!”

Chaeha says “Lucian is another volatile champion with lots of level 3 all in potential that can target Kai'Sa's subpar early game and shut her out before she gets to any of her spikes. ”

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.”

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”

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.”

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.”

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.”

Penguto says “dash dash dash. good luck hitting him. Also run away from his ult with Severum Q ”

Tips Against Lucian in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

WayOfTheTempesst says “Have not seen a Lucian solo lane in a very long time but when it was meta the lane could be slightly annoying. He can hard bully you early levels and chunk you out so play safe untill you are lvl 3 and that's your time to trade/all in. Try to keep dashing to dodge his Q and save your nado for when after he uses his dash. This lane is def a lot harder mid than it is top for the obvious reason that the lane is much shorter and he can get to tower faster. Matchup gets a lot easier once you are both 6.”

Katawina52 says “This is the hardest matchup together with Tristana I would say, Go electro with resolve second: Second Wind, Overgrowth and double armor runes. Start Dshield or Cloth if you want a chance to survive. If enemy has heavy AD damage (jungle/mid especially) a seekers rush 100%. Dont go for trades unless you have teammates near. (I would dodge if they have elise/taliyah/karthus jgl cuz then you can't stack armor) Remember that surviving early is key with matchups like Trist/Panth/Lucian that's why not stacking armor can be really annoying.”
S11 Katawina's challenger EUW Katarina guide by Katawina52 | Katarina Player
WayOfTheTempesst says “Very very annoying matchup. Take fleet and dshield and just focus on surviving. You just need to get to the point where you can kill him in one combo with ignite. Take 2nd wind and revitalize and just sustain and hard as you can. When you go in on him, do it when he just uses his Q.”

Yasukeh says “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. ”

eiensiei says “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.”

Ambitieux says “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.”
Ambitieux's MASTERS Quick Guide to Diamond+ by Ambitieux | Ahri Player
iZianni says “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.”
Challenger Lux Guide by iZianni | Lux Player
LunarVortex says “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.”

Hullos says “Good mobility for trading and high dmg. He can engage on you when you try to poke and keep on you. Often gets life steal early as well. All of this makes him a real pain to deal with. Play safe and wait for team fights where you outperform him. ”

Tips Against Lucian in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

xPetu says “Recommended: Sustain Runes & Teleport Tips: Don't E in unless he uses E. Play passively and farm while staying healthy with Passive shield and W. He wants to punish you.”
Sovereign Kitten says “He is quite difficult to actually (Q) reliably due to his kit allowing him to hit you (3) times very swiftly, PTA passive deals more damage than you really want to take from him. Utilize bushes to your advantage to get your (Q) out before he can react. His (R) can be avoided by minions or running to the sides as it is a straight line and can also be cancelled prematurely to allow him to rotate back through his gap close and burst of auto attacks. So essentially he has a lot of range and abilities that let him trade very quickly before our (Q) reaches him without getting the jump. ”

RealIreliaCarriesU says “I would’ve said he was easy but after his buffs he can be hard to beat especially if he has jungle help. The lane sucks and you have to give up a lot of cs early on, start E and get whatever minions you can while he pushes it. Be careful of him hitting level 2 first and farm under tower. You can look for fights with passive stacked when it pushes back but generally it is safer to wait until you are level 6 as hitting your E on him can be tricky since he can just E out of it. If you end up committing and missing E you will likely lose early on. Dying early on against Lucian is horrible as you won’t be able to lane against him but if you make it safely to 6 and kill him, he is a walking bag of gold whenever he comes to lane. Be careful of ganks and don’t be afraid to ask for ganks as well, he is pretty squishy and easy to kill.”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - DIFFICULT MATCHUP. CONQUEROR. SECOND WIND + DORAN’S SHIELD IS A MUST. RUSH STEELCAPS. RESPECT HIS DAMAGE. DON’T GO FOR STUPID CS THAT LETS HIM GET A FULL COMBO ON YOU. ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT IF HE IS RUNNING PTA+IGNITE. VERY SNOWBALLY LANE. Lucian is a difficult matchup for the impatient Darius but if you properly play around your powerspikes and have basic knowledge on the champion, you can absolutely demolish him. Much like all Darius matchups, you have to keep your eyes open for any mistake the Lucian does whether that is wasting his dash, dashing towards you or him misstepping. You will have to give up some CS in order to conserve your HP. Cannon minions are nice and all but you do not want to eat a full combo + PTA from Lucian and lose 60% of your HP. The thing with Lucian is that if you catch him, he is pretty much dead. You have to play aggressive and look for hooks that you can turn into all ins at level 3, 6 and when you buy Steelcaps. And you HAVE to rush Steelcaps against him. In terms of runes, I’ve found that Conqueror works best because against Lucian, you will just have many close fights which is where Conqueror shines. Either way, you need to be taking Second Wind and picking up a Doran’s Shield ingame. If you are confident, go for Sorcery. Rejuvenation Beads are okay but they don’t work too well in early fights as they don’t actually give you any stats. If you ever land your pull on him, he is pretty much dead as with the W slow on him, you will catch up even if he dashes away. If you have ghost, a pull on the Lucian is pretty much a free kill. The good thing about this matchup is that once if you win it and get ahead, the Lucian is pretty much screwed. You will snowball on him super hard and he won’t be able to do much for the rest of the game unless you and your team give him a lot of kills in a teamfight. Stridebreaker also turns him into a free kill if you are even/ahead. The bad part is if he gets ahead, he will be a very massive threat to your team.”
I Am Goliath says “Similar to Vayne and other ranged top laners, this matchup is also very annoying, and lucian is extremely strong early lane, I go doran's shield start in this lane and just try to survive early on, it's almost impossible to hit an E normally because he can just reaction E away very easily when he sees your windup for E, so again you'll have to E-Flash to secure kills in this matchup. Ninja tabi is a great early buy because he auto attacks a ton with the double auto passive, Bramble or exectioners calling is also recommended since they rush botrk. Overall annoying lane but you do outscale him hard in teamfights and hopefully you get some jungle help since he will be pushing a lot early.”

Psychopathic Top says “Lucian top isn’t very good at the moment due to the amount of gap closing champs there are in the toplane. However, Nasus does not really have one except for wither, and it does not take effect until after 6. This matchup would be a 5/10 if you can survive to level 6, but usually it is almost impossible to do. Lucian pre level 6 will just kill you no matter what build you go. Cloth 4 pots can only hold him off, but will not stop him from forcing you to back multiple times in the early game (if your jungler doesn’t help), unless you want to die. By the time you put together sheen, a good Lucian would already be up too much cs and turret plating for you to do anything. Make sure to beg for jungler’s help in this matchup, as if he dies pre level 6, this matchup becomes that much easier. ”

Drake6401 says “ In order to win this lane, you need to be more skilled than he is. As a ranged champion with a low cool-down dash, he has the full advantage so only outplay will win. Use the healing start because you can sustain with it very well if you keep his pokes to a minimal. Getting a kill will be hard unless he messes up. All your attempts to engage will end when he dashes away because using your Dice to chase is risky. E-Q-E pokes work to work him down. If you get him to half, a double E chase for the kill is viable. Only his flash will save him then and hopefully yours is up to flow. Having a jungle gank just to force his flash is good too because now he's lacking a bit more mobility for a while.”

quinn adc says “This matchup sucks. Level 1 you must fight for 2 first. If you see lucian is winning in the push, then back off because his 2 spike is strong. If you get 2 first, instantly jump on him with E for a big trade. A good lucian will save E to dodge your Q, which is why this matchup sucks. Dont stand behind minions in this matchup because his Q range is longer if he hits a minion. If you are on the side, his Q range is only 500 range, which is less than your AA range if he uses Q to click on you. Ideally, only do long range Qs in this matchup so if you miss, he cant punish you for it. If you want to engage, Use E first to slow him. If you E first, lucian might panic and E away, which gives you a free blind. Be careful with this though because if lucian holds onto E, he can punish you. It really depends on how lucian plays, but overall just take short trades when you land Q, and if Lucian Qs the wave, you can engage on him with E for a trade. His Q is his bread and butter combo. Post 6, save E to cancel his R, but stay in E range of him post 6 so if he jumps on you to engage, you are in range to cancel his R. Going even in this lane is a win for you because you outscale lucian in 1v1.”
