With Lucian/Nami, you literally have one of the finest pairings in professional gaming to this day
In the late 2021 meta, the Lucian and Nami bot lane combination went insane. Lucian has been a popular pick in the bottom lane since receiving improvements to his passive during that season, while Nami has been his side-by-side lane companion. But how has this pair survived to this day?
Riot had to make considerable changes to return him to the ADC role because he had long been established as one of the greatest solo lane options at that time. That’s when his new Passive effect went into effect in patch 11.17.
The Vigilance passive effect allows Lucian’s next two auto-attacks to deal additional damage if an allied champion buffs or heals him. Turrets are likewise subject to increased damage. His Ultimate, The Culling, received a 25% higher critical probability, making his crit build more feasible and changing him from a solo-lane champion to a true ADC.
Because all of her abilities heal and buff ally champions, Nami, is the champion who can most frequently activate Lucian’s Vigilance passive.
Because they improve the movement speed of any allies, abilities like Aqua Prison (Q) and Tidal Wave (R) can trigger the Vigilance passive and strengthen his following attacks.
When the Nami player in the lane enhances Lucian with Tidecaller’s Blessing (E), the duo does more damage than most other bottom lane pairs in the game. They have an extra aspect of resilience and endurance with the use of Nami’s major source of healing, which also procs Vigilance.
According to League statistics site Games of Legends, Lucian and Nami have a pick/ban rate of 95 percent in major regions so far in the 2023 pro League season. They’ve played 35 times apiece, with 34 of those games featuring them on the same team.
Perhaps right now, only heavy nerfs will impact the duo and separate them once and for all.
