Now, It’s time to look at the Best Attack Combos for Lucian, 

Best Attack Combos for Lucian in Wild Rift

In Wild Rift, You can create multiple attack combos with Lucian based on your playstyle and the enemy champion you are facing. So, Let’s look at some amazing attack combo use by Lucian’s mains,

Combo 1 (with Ultimate):

E > Basic Attacks > W >Basic Attacks > Q > Basic Attacks > R > E > Basic Attacks > E > Basic Attacks > W > Basic Attacks > Q

This attack combo allows you to chase down enemies with lots of mobilities with your E, as your E cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds whenever you hit the enemy champion with your empowered basic attacks to champion. So, Keep spamming your E, W, and Q combo with your basic attacks, and when the enemy’s health drops below 505, use your ultimate to eliminate them.

It looks complete, but you have to just spam your basic attacks with your abilities as after using abilities, Lucian fires two shots when he makes a basic attack again within 3.5 seconds (Lucian’s passive).

Combo 2 (without ultimate):

E > Basic Attacks > W >Basic Attacks > Q > Basic Attacks > E > Basic Attacks > E > Basic Attacks > W > Basic Attacks > Q

Wild Rift Lucian Gameplay Tips and Tricks

Wild Rift Lucian

Early Game:

In Wild Rift, Lucian commonly played in a dragon lane and mid lane. Lucian’s early game is pretty weak in the wild rift as his attacks and abilities deal very little damage in the early game. So, in the early game, just focus on farming and poke the enemy champions with your Q and E combo.

Lucian’s requires at least two to three items to deal effective damage, so in the early game, focus on farming and try to get a kill with the help of your jungle and support.

Mid to Late Game:

Lucian becomes very strong once he has his core items and two-three kills under his belt. In Mid to late game, Lucian deals massive damage with his ultimate and basic attacks.

In the mid to late game, play with your team and help your team to get one or two pick off before important objectives like dragons and barons. In the late game, it all comes down to your positioning in a team fight as you have to deal damage to enemy champions while maintaining a safe distance during a team fight as you will be their primary target as an ADC (Attack Damage Carry). 

In the late game, let your jungler or support engage the team fight and deal the damage to enemy champions while maintaining a safe distance. Lucian’s ultimate is very useful in the team fight as you can use Lucian ultimate as a cleanup tool as once enemies hp falls below 50% during the team fight, use your ultimate to eliminate them.
