Lucian's build paths have varied greatly across his history in League of Legends. Going from crit, to the Korean Ghostblade-Black Cleaver, into lethality, into the very questionable "Blucian," Lucian's itemization has a varied and interesting timeline. Most builds capitalize on his double tap passive, Lightslinger — the latest base build does the same, featuring Blade of the Ruined King and The Black Cleaver as the solid core to build out the rest of your Lucian needs.
