Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

For your starting items on LuluLulu , you can either take Amplifying TomeAmplifying Tome  or Ruby CrystalRuby Crystal . But that depends on how your playstyle is within the early game;

  • If you are aggressive in lane, take Amplifying TomeAmplifying Tome  
  • If you are passive then in lane, take  Ruby CrystalRuby Crystal , the tanky stats will help if you are getting poked early.

For the first item, you can either choose Ardent CenserArdent Censer or Harmonic EchoHarmonic Echo but that depends on these factors:

Ardent CenserArdent Censer as a second item will usually depend on who your ADC is, champions like JinxJinx , VayneVayne or even [kaisa] would benefit from this. The reason is because you and your ADC gain attack speed, as well as on hit (bonus) magic damage for 6 seconds. Make sure to take advantage of it!

Harmonic EchoHarmonic Echo as a second item will benefit from champions that are very aggressive in the early game (a.k.a Lane Bully). Champions like DravenDraven , Miss FortuneMiss Fortune and even JhinJhin would benefit from this because it heals you and your ADC at 100 stacks, so don't be afraid to trade in lane once you see this item at maximum stacks!

Third item for me, is usually where I choose my boots & enchant considering the active is crucial to a mid-to-late game teamfights. I am here to breakdown the boots you should get, to know what is a must-buy;

  • Ionian Boots of LucidityIonian Boots of Lucidity is the boots I usually get when my whole team and I are snowballing. Having more Ability Haste means you are able to spam out your spells even more. Remember Ability Haste has no cap, so spam them abilities like it's URF.
  • [Ninja Tabi] is when the enemy team has a fed AD Assassin or ADC that you don't want to mess with. Also if you need to survive, for when you need to be there for your team. This item will be useful for champions like ZedZed or even YasuoYasuo .
  • Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads is for when you are against a bursty support like LuxLux or SeraphineSeraphine , It also comes in handy when you are against the AP Assassins like AkaliAkali , EvelynnEvelynn , FizzFizz & KennenKennen . Also Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads reduces the amount of CC (crowd control) time dealt to you.


Which Boot enchant should you get?

Got your boots? Now what enchant would you go with? Here are a some suggestions;

  • [Locket Enchant] is SO USEFUL! I am so surprised that no one uses this enchant often, especially the support players out there (Tank Baron Laner's can benefit from this too.) Giving your shield an AOE shield that can probably save everyone is
    kind of broken, add on to LuluLulu 's [lulu:3] then your team will positively survive those late game teamfights for Baron or Elder Dragon. Just make sure to POSITION properly, an enemy assassin or enemy jungler can easily focus you down, especially when Wild GrowthWild Growth is on cooldown.
  • Redeeming EnchantRedeeming Enchant is so UNDERRATED. I started using this recently on my match games as LuluLulu and may I say it is a lifesaver. For LuluLulu healing isn't strong suit, but pairing her with the items I recommended and this enchant...you will leave the fight probably around 70% health. I love this item! I simp for this one.
  • Shadows EnchantShadows Enchant is probably that enchant where the game recommends you to get, but compared to others this is the least efficient enchant - for me anyways. See by the late game you would probably have your Sweeping Lens that is way more efficient, as well as using the vision plants that is around the jungle. However, scouting out where champions are with the shadows will come in handy and give a sense where majority of their team is.


For you 4th & 5th item could be situational and it all depends on you, here are some items that you might want to add to your build:

  • Athene's Unholy GrailAthene's Unholy Grail for even more healing.  You will be surprise how much healing you can do once late game hits.
  • Zeke's ConvergenceZeke's Convergence is a tremendously powerful item! Not only does it bring the armor and magic resistances to LuluLulu , but it also bring a buff that increases the attack of the highest AD in the game for 2 seconds whenever you cast your ultimate. So when you Wild GrowthWild Growth your ADC...party time!
  • Protector's VowProtector's Vow This is very useful when there is a lot of assassins trying to take you or your ADC down. The shield can be triggered whenever a champion, monster, or even a turret hits you, both you and an ally next to you will get the shield. Don't forget more armor stats so that you can survive! Useful in all AD team comps.
  • Adaptive HelmAdaptive Helm This is probably my secret favorite item. Especially when you are faced with an annoying KennenKennen , TeemoTeemo , OriannaOrianna and AkaliAkali . Reduces the magic damage of the same ability for 15% for 4 seconds! That's enough to shut down, any annoying AP threat. Hell, even AP MalphiteMalphite . If you are faced with pure AP team comps, this is a must buy after your core.

Hunter Genius
Hunter Genius
  • Summon Aery is a MUST HAVE spell for every enchanter support for the extra shield, and it always comes handy in clutch situations.
  • Weakness is useful because LuluLulu 's 1st skill slow, the extra damage is helpful for some poke trades in lane.
  • Loyalty is also a must have for a duo lane.
  • Hunter Genius might surprise you guys. But with my experience, LuluLulu doesn't seem to be mana hungry compared to other supports like SonaSona , LuxLux , or NamiNami . The extra 15 Ability Haste will be useful for spamming more Help, Pix!Help, Pix! and shorter cooldown on Wild GrowthWild Growth

  • Font Of Life as I mentioned in the first Rune set. LuluLulu 's GlitterlanceGlitterlance is a slow, and that's enough to proc the rune. This is useful, because you can sustain your ADC's health back with this one. Note that, you and your ADC heal for 3% of your maximum health for 2 seconds. Just keep that in mind.
  • Weakness is useful because LuluLulu 's GlitterlanceGlitterlance slow, the extra damage is helpful for some poke trades in lane.
  • Spirit Walker is useful for more tankiness, and the 20% slow resistance will probably crucial in the late game, when the enemy is trying make a pick. You can be able to escape if they start to chase you.
  • Pathfinder is if you want to 'GO FAST!'. You can easily zoom back from lane to base with the extra movement speed. I would actually recommend this Rune on the first page Rune set. So feel free to play with the third keystone.

Summoner Spells

When to take which summoners

Flash
A must have Summoner Spell! Can be useful if there is a sudden engagements from the enemy team, and good saving your allies with your ultimate.
Exhaust
This is good when you are trading with the enemy Dragon lane duo. The damage reduction is very handy when you use it on the enemy ADC!
Ignite
If you are with a very aggressive ADC like Draven, Kai'sa or Miss Fortune, having ignite might not be a bad idea.
Heal
If your ADC takes any other spell besides Heal, make sure you are the one who gets it. Heal is crucial to winning a trade and later a kill, so one of you must have it.

All I can say is, this is somewhat a walk in the park. Here's why.

  • Make sure to have WhimsyWhimsy placed on the ground where you think the AlistarAlistar might go for an all in. This is will counter his engage, leading for you to retaliate with auto attacks.
  • When his HeadbuttHeadbutt and PulverizePulverize is on cooldown, try and poke with your auto attacks. LuluLulu and Pix, Faerie CompanionPix, Faerie Companion do a lot. Just remember to clear the minion wave before you start fighting. 
  • Use Wild GrowthWild Growth on your ADC if AlistarAlistar was successful in his combo. Try to WhimsyWhimsy the enemy ADC or him, so they don't try and Flash.
  • Poke your enemy with Help, Pix!Help, Pix! but I wouldn't recommend it, considering I would prefer to use it for shielding your ADC.
