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

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.”

Dealersz says “Avoid getting hit by Q in lane, wait for his E before you use your E”

LouisGeert says “Lucian, just like draven is a champion that is quite strong early game and can snowball out of control.”
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.”

m0rfeazz says “Really squishy and low damage,dont trade until 3 and poke him slowly to 50% hp after that just finish him,its really that easy”

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. ”

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”

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.”

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

Avucado says “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.”

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.”
Zianni's Challenger Lux Guide by iZianni | Lux Player
Zethal_Na says “Lucian tends to go exhaust in this matchup. Hard to play if you get chunked early, so sit under turret and farm with qs. Once you are level 4, start looking for your combos. You can generally kill him at level 6 if you aren't behind in exp or health.”
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. ”
shidonryoku says “He will annoy you, farm under the tower at the beginning. Your Q cancels Lucian's ultimate.”
[11.15] Kassa Dude by shidonryoku | Kassadin Player
Zethal_Na says “I wouldn't recommend trading with lucian early if you're new to cassio. If you're experienced, then play off of lucian's cooldowns. You would want to take tp if you're going aggressive (get lucian low and you tp back) ”

Coldsong says “Even though Lucian has INSANE levels of poke and trading power, he is still not a bad matchup for Talon. He has no crowd control and if he uses his E aggressively, punish him for it. Make sure to get away from his line of sight when he ults and get an early Plated Steelcaps.”

Ericv9 says “lucian is one of the hardest matchup for kassadin since he can poke you early game even if you sit unde your tower...he will also deny most of your cs and will avoid in every single away you scaling and getting back into the game...the ideal would be having a jngler than can gank him properly and abuse him when he is pushing and trying to poke you down, just so you can outscale him and also 1v1 him later when you will be enough fed/ when you scaled enough”

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

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. ”
THE PASSIONATE GUIDE TO TEEMO by Sovereign Kitten | Teemo Player
BoilTheOil says “Take Fleet Footwork. Rush Plated Steelcaps so you can negate some of his damage. You can't really do much until you get Stridebreaker so just try to get as much cs as possible. ”
[11.15] NA Challenger / Grandmaster Sett Top Lane Guide by BoilTheOil | Sett Player
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.”

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.”

MrDomian says “Play defensively. If he makes a wrong jump or is not standing properly, use R.”
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.”

SaltCat says “Another ranged top abuser... level 1 you can beat him with full passive but he will poke you while you retreat so i suggest not, level 2 and beyond be carefull of your E he will dodge it with his E, you murder him level 6 and beyond if you are even.”
LiL Bunnie FuFuu says “Similar to vayne but without the true damage. He also might build black cleaver which can mess you up. Can bully you extremely hard in lane forcing you to sacrifice large amounts of cs and xp. However, very high outplay potential anywhere near tower as he lacks Vayne's condemn and true damage. Free kill if ahead.”

Phrxshn says “Dodge his Ardent Blaze(W) aka "Cross Attack Buffer" so he doe not gain movement speed buff and attack speed buff. Move sideway or out of range for his Culling(R). Time fling to counteract with Relentless Pursuit(E) or dash. (Outscaling Edge: Singed) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Lucian) (Recommended Items: Plated Steelcap, Thornmail, Deadman's Plate) (Fling overrides his E)”
Veng Shotz says “EQ poke and back off immediately, let comet poke force him out of lane. after dirk and some haste you can poke him out of lane after a few rotations. ”
