Lucian’s Abilities

Lightslinger Lucian’s Passive


After casting an ability, Lucian’s next basic attack on-attack within 3.5 seconds fires an additional shot after 0.25 seconds, which deals 50 / 55 / 60% AD physical damage (depending on level), increased to 100% AD against minions.

The second shot applies on-hit and on-attack effects at 100% effectiveness and is affected by critical strike modifiers.

If Lucian’s primary target is killed before the second shot can go off, he automatically shoots another enemy in range.

Whenever Lucian is healed, shielded or granted a buff by an ally, his next two basic attacks within 6 seconds are empowered to deal 0908603917 attack damage) bonus magic damage on-hit. The empowered attacks can stack up to 4 times. Q

Piercing Light Lucian’s Q Ability

0908603917 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90

9 / 8 / 7 / 6 / 5

After a 0908603917 second delay (based on level), Lucian fires a laser in the direction of the target enemy, dealing 95 / 130 / 165 / 200 / 0908603917 / 0.75 / 0.9 / 1.05 / 1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage to all enemies in a line. W

Ardent Blaze Lucian’s W Ability

0908603917 / 13 / 12 / 11 / 10 ACTIVE: Lucian fires a shot in the target direction that explodes in a cross pattern upon hitting an enemy or reaching the end of its path, dealing 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 / 0908603917% of ability power) magic damage to enemies struck and granting sight of the area for 1 second.

Enemies hit are marked for 6 seconds.

Lucian gains 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 bonus movement speed for 1 second if he or allied champions damage a marked target. Allied champions triggering this effect grant Lucian Vigilance. E

Relentless Pursuit Lucian’s E Ability

0908603917 / 20 / 18 / 16 / 14

Lucian dashes a short distance. Relentless Pursuit’s cooldown is reduced by 1 second per Lightslinger (passive) hit, doubles against enemy champions (2 second reduction per hit, 4 seconds total for a full passive proc). R

The Culling Lucian’s Ultimate (R) Ability

0908603917 / 100 / 90 / 90 / 90 ACTIVE: Lucian channels for up to 3 seconds, rapidly firing up to 22 (+1 per 4% critical strike chance) shots in the target direction. Each shot deals 15 / 30 / 0908603917 attack damage) (+15% of ability power) physical damage to the first enemy hit, doubled to 30 / 60 / 0908603917 attack damage) (+30% of ability power) against minions. The Culling can be recast after 0.75 seconds during the channel, and does so automatically when the channel ends.

While channeling, Lucian is ghosted and may still move and cast Relentless Pursuit.

RECAST: Lucian ends The Culling.
