Lucian The Purifier: Champion Spotlight

LoL-lucian

Riot has finally delivered on Lucian The Purifier, the 115th (?) champion in League of Legends.

This champion’s design is unique in a few ways:

  • He seems of African descent (Ya, a black dude, took you long enough Riot)
  • Male Ranged Attack Damage Carry. Ezreal, Graves, and Varus have competition (Teemo doesn’t count, shush)
  • Uses two guns
  • Built-in escape
  • Same release skin as Graves
  • Has secret interactions with Thresh due to lore.

Iv’e personally been super excited about Lucian’s release since I play ADC. He looks like a great addition to the League and fills the role of something in between Miss Fortune and Graves. The lack of CC will make him more challenging to duel with, but the burst he provides in lane should give you the upper hand during early to mid game.

As for late game, Vayne still holds the crown for highest damage potential.

After using one of Lucian’s abilities, his next auto attack within 6 seconds will strike twice. The second shot deals 50-75% of Lucian’s AD based on level, but fully applies on-hit effects. Minions and monsters take full damage from the second shot. The second shot can critically strike.

Ardent Blaze

ACTIVE: Lucian fires a shot that explodes in a cross pattern upon hitting an enemy or reaching the end of its path, dealing magic damage and marking enemies hit for 6 seconds.

If Lucian damages a marked target with his basic attacks or abilities, he gains 40 movement speed for 2 seconds. This does not consume the mark.

  • MAGIC DAMAGE: 60 / 100 / 140 / 180 / 220 (+90% AP) (+ 60% bonus AD)

Relentless Pursuit

  • COST: 60 / 45 / 30 / 15 / 0 MANA

Relentless Pursuit

ACTIVE: Lucian dashes a short distance and removes all slowing effects. Relentless Pursuit’s cooldown resets if Lucian scores a kill or assist during The Culling.

The Culling

  • RANGE: 1400
  • COOLDOWN: 100 / 75 / 50
  • COST: 100 MANA

The Culling

ACTIVE: Lucian starts firing shots in the target direction for 3 seconds, each shot dealing physical damage to the first enemy it hits. The amount of shots fired scales with his attack speed. The Culling is considered a channeled ability and it can be interrupted, but Lucian can move freely (including movement abilities) without interrupting it himself.

Reactivate The Culling to cancel the ability early.

The Culling deals quadruple damage to minions but not monsters.

  • PHYSICAL DAMAGE PER SHOT: 40 / 50 / 60 (+25% bonus AD) (+10% AP)

  • MAXIMUM SHOTS: 26 / 30 / 34
  • MAXIMUM TOTAL DAMAGE: 1040 / 1500 / 2040 (+650 / 750 / 850% bonus AD) (+260 / 300 / 340% AP
