League Of Legends – AP Lulu Guide
AP Lulu has been pretty favored in OGN, LPL, LCS and across pub games past few months. While making this guide after the recent nerfs, may not been smartest decision, but i felt i still would do it. AP Lulu is also viable as support, but this build is made for Mid lane, make sure you understand that. I also suggest checking out my other guides if your interested learning other champions.
Pix, Faerie Companion (Passive)
Whenever Lulu or the allied target of Help, Pix! attacks an enemy (excluding structures and wards), Pix fires a barrage of 3 homing bolts toward the same target that deal 3 / 7 / 11 / 15 / 19 / 23 / 27 / 31 /35 (+ 5% AP) magic damage each to the first enemy they each hit.
- RANGE: 925
- COOLDOWN: 7
- COST: 60 / 65 / 70 / 75 / 80 MANA
ACTIVE: Lulu and Pix each fire a magic bolt towards a target direction, dealing magic damage and slowing enemies hit by 80% for a short time. This slow decreases to 0% (+13.3% per 100 AP) over its duration, to a maximum of 80%. An enemy can only be affected by one bolt.
- MAGIC DAMAGE: 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+ 50% AP)

- AURA SLOW: 30 / 45 / 60%
I think this is currently best build for AP Lulu, i think although she has few different options like just stacking tons of AP to get more utillity and Health from ultimate or you can just magic penetration items.
At the moment there isn’t better choices for starting items. If your really scared about your mid lane opponent in case its pantheon/Zed/Riven you can pick up cloth armor + 5 pots.
These should be the items always aimed for every game you play on Lulu. Of course each game is unique on perspective what your team comp is and what is enemy’s team comp.
These three items are best situational ones i can recommend. Guardian Angel is not on the list since i feel its not that strong item.
Pretty standard AP runes, i use same page for every midlaner, since i feel this just suits all of them. Except Vladimir, since he doesn’t have mana but yeah. You are free to make your own adjustments to the masteries, but i recommend going heavily on offense tree though.
Okay since with the recent rune changes (Check out breakdown video here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eG8ifg_Q2U) I think there hasn’t been so many changes to the Mid lane, except Magic resistance per level being buffed, which may make you choose that over AP per level. Also armor per level is the thing i run for every champion now, because flat got nerfed slightly and per level got buffed.
I’m back with guides and this time ill teach you guys secrets of AP Lulu Mid. Even though recent nerfs to Lulu i think she is pretty viable midlaner, she might fall out of the flavor wagon for while.
- 9x Magic Pen (RED)
- 9x Armor Per Level (YELLOW)
- 9x Magic per level (BLUES)
- 3x AP Quints (PURPLE)
