Lucian position

Lucian can play in all 3 roles: Top, Mid, Bot. Reason

Top: thanks to the advantage of long range attack. Accompanied by the dash skill. Lucian can create a lot of pressure with the tanky champions who have short range attack.

The downside of choosing Lucian to go top is that my team will lack a tank champion. Lucian must win the lane to compensate for the weakness in the team comp.

Mid: Quite suitable for Lucian thanks to his ability to burst damage quickly. However, the weakness is that the team will lack a champion with AP (Ability Power) damage.

Bot: this is the easiest lane for Lucian. Can synergize with support to create a fast wombo combo. Win the lane early.

Lucian Build

Lucian is a champion who has 100% AD so of course you will build items that increase physical damage, attack speed and critical like any other AD. So why is Blade of the Ruined King considered an important item for Lucian.

When Lucian uses a skill, he will immediately activate his passive to shoot 2 shots. This means you have 3 attacks and activate the Siphon of Blade of the Ruined King, dealing 100 magic damage and stealing 25% of the enemy’s movement speed.

The damage created is of course important, but the speed of the enemy being reduced is even more important. Create a lot of pressure. Lucian will almost be an assassin when he glides to approach and deal damage to the enemy ADC.

Bloodthirster is the next important item I suggest you must have. Of course, this item provides all the important stats that Lucian needs. The good thing about this item is that it gives lifesteal.

Lucian does not have any skill that allows him to heal. And when facing Lucian, he shoots a lot. The passive of this item will help Lucian survive the lane as well as last longer in the team fight.

MAGNETIC BLASTER is the next important item. It gives more damage and attack range. The great thing about this item is that it gives the ability to shock. Lucian can increase his AOE damage and be less passive in the team fight.

To optimize the damage, you will always have to use skills alternately with normal attacks to make good use of the passive. You may feel a lack of mana, so you can also buy Manamune, but when I play, I don’t lack too much because I have already chosen the energy band rune.

Besides, I always prepare enough skills and mana before attacking the enemy. So here you can depend on the situation.

Black Cleaver is also not a bad choice for Lucian. Stacking up to 6 stacks of this item is not difficult for Lucian. Reduce up to 24% armor.

Shoot 2 shots after using a skill. Do you understand what this means? It means that this passive helps increase DPS (Damage Per Second), create more damage in a short period of time.

The second shot also deals more damage to minions. Leading to faster wave clear than other ADCs (Attack Damage Carries). The special point of the second shot is that it applies the on-hit effects.

Can cause crit (critical). So you can completely combine with other skills to create a heavy damage combo. In reality, no matter which ADC, if solo 1v1, I just need one skill, I can immediately take half of the enemy’s HP (Health Points).


For me, this is the main skill to create large damage and use to poke the enemy. The good thing about this skill is the ability to pierce.

Allows shooting through minions. It means I can choose to stand behind the minions and still poke the enemy. Standing in a safe area and poking the enemy. The only weakness of this skill is the range is quite short.


I use this skill to engage an attack. Not to poke the enemy. Thanks to the ability to mark and reveal the enemy. Besides, it gives more MS (Movement Speed).


This skill can be used to attack or disengageavoid damage. I use this skill to close the gap with the enemy quickly and deal damage. In case of using the ultimate. I also use it to position myself to suit.


Clearly this is a burst damage skill. But the advantage of it is that it creates a lot of pressure for any enemy who intends to chase and attack Lucian.

The downside is that you can’t change the direction of the attack. In case of missing, it won’t do any damage.

How to play Lucian

I have played Lucian more than 300 matches. Here are some suggestions from me for you to play Lucian well. Remember that Lucian’s strength is inversely proportional to the time of the match.

The weaker the game gets, the weaker Lucian needs to play aggressively from the start of the game. The essence of playing Lucian correctly is to attack aggressively.

Glide to and deal damage to the enemy when you have the opportunity. Take advantage of the passive to shoot 2 shots combined with the skill to create large damage output.

The Pursuit can go through thin walls.

Lucian pros and cons


Strong at the beginning of the game if you know how to play can snowball the whole lane.


Accumulate damage fast.

Dame a lot.


No CC.

Late game can't compare to other marksmen.

Shorter arm span than other marksmen.


Lucian Wild Rift has high AD (Attack Damage). Aggressive, dominant play style. In the current meta, the best way to build items for Lucian Wild Rift is items for crit (critical) damage, range and lifesteal. Hope with the gameplay guide you will master Lucian.
