So, I'm having trouble with Lucian.

My normal ADC is Varus. I love his range and his kit works for how I play carries, and while I know Lucian might be a better comparison to someone like Ezreal in mobility, I'm more practiced with Varus.

What are your opinions on either champion as far as strengths/weaknesses? I understand there may be better champions for the role, but lets make the comparison with these two champions in mind.

(If you prefer one champion or the other, leave a comment why, I might learn something )

As someone whom also used Varus a lot, I can tell you that Lucian is much different. Lucian is more about moving around the battlefield to gain the vantage points on your enemies.

As such, he seems to play a more "slippery" play style than Varus who is more about sniping people after getting stacks on them.

I think you should pick Lucian with burst and CC. His ultimate does absolutely insane single target damage if you can keep someone locked down long enough to actually hit it. I believe it is the strongest single target spell in the game if the full thing hits. Does about 3.3k damage late game.

EDIT-This is to say I think you should do something like Amumu Zac or Rammus jungle with a Kennen top or Lissandra mid or something. Because if you can keep someone still for three seconds they have to take a serious ass beating.

I was vastly underwhelmed with Lucians ultimate, but that might have been because everyone knows how to deal with it. Move. It could very well be my fault, and I agree that it's painful, it's just more difficult to get the full effect out of reliably. A Varus ult in a teamfight would help Lucian quite a bit lol.

To elaborate I feel like Lucian has good damage potential, but his kit doesn't play how I feel it should when I play him. When I Q, I feel like it should be a skill shot, and it throws me off. I think Lucian has a great aa animation, better than Varus for sure there, so i'll cs better, but Varus' Q will get me more kills that I miss out on with Lucians shorter range.

If anything Lucian being able to use his dash not only to dodge Varus' Q but also remove his slow makes him counter Varus. It's not really a counter on either end though.

after lucian uses his q punish him, walk up, last hit a creep to get the as from passive, q, e, then back off. He won't have any response. As long as you don't miss your kit you shouldn't lose to him at 6.
