Lucian Champion Spotlight

Learn to unleash The Culling.png a barrage of bullets and send opponents to the grave in the Lucian Lucian Champion Spotlight.

A highly-mobile ranged damage dealer, Lucian shines when blasting enemies with Piercing Light.png Piercing Light and quickly repositioning himself with Relentless Pursuit.png Relentless Pursuit to unleash more pain or retreat from counterattacks and jungle ganks. By tagging enemies with Ardent Blaze.png Ardent Blaze and activating The Culling.png The Culling, Lucian gains the speed boost needed to chase down opponents, unload massive damage and secure kills. And since Lightslinger.png Lightslinger enables double on-hit procs of life steal, Crest of Cinders.png red buff and more, Lucian can overcome opponents in duels and in-lane trades with strategic use of his abilities.

Put evil in its place - 6 feet under - as Lucian with sample masteries, tactics and more in this Champion Spotlight.

Playing As Lucian Lucian
  • For optimal burst, try to combine Relentless Pursuit.png Relentless Pursuit into Piercing Light.png Piercing Light.
  • Ardent Blaze.png Ardent Blaze actually explodes in a star pattern. Try to line it up so the spokes hit enemy champions.
  • Once you have chosen an angle for The Culling.png The Culling, you cannot change it. Pick your moment well!
  • Because of Lightslinger.png Lightslinger, Lucian benefits more from Attack Damage than he does from Attack Speed.
Playing Against Lucian Lucian
  • Lucian has strong Lightslinger.png burst, but little sustained damage.
  • Lucian cannot change the aim of The Culling.png The Culling. Take advantage of this by avoiding the angle of the bullets.
  • Piercing Light.png Piercing Light does not give Lucian extra Attack Range. He still needs to find a target in range to line up his shot. Avoid Piercing Light.png Piercing Light by anticipating the angle Lucian will choose.
