I'm playing Nami support and i found the botlane Nami/Lucian very strong, but i'm wondering something.

If Lucian does the combo AA + Dash + reset AA + double AA, does he use all stacks of Tidecaller's blessing? If the combo works, it is preferable to maximaze Ebb and Flow or Tidecaller's blessing? He'll slows the enemies ADC or the support and you can Aqua Prison one of them.

If you don't know the name of Nami's skill, i give you a like to the wiki here.

  • @cloudymusic i don't feel like keeping it updated/relevant across patches, feel free to use it and do it yourself though. Also this is my opinion others may benefit more from maxing ebb and flow

If Lucian does the combo AA + Dash + reset AA + double AA, does he use all stacks of Tidecaller's blessing?

Yes.

If the combo works, is it preferable to maximize Ebb and Flow or Tidecaller's blessing?

The problem with Lucian especially in the recent patches is his low range. He is constantly in danger's way and therefore, very susceptible to poke bot lanes (e.g. Caitlyn Lulu).

The burst potential for Tidecaller's blessing + Lucian's Kit is immense, but you have to consider :

  1. Can Lucian pull it off? You're putting all the damage and work for the ADC, that 1 CC would break off all your damage. (Lulu's W, Annie's stun, etc.)
  2. Are you at a position to be aggressive? Are you generally at an advantage?
  3. Is the enemy bot lane a sustain comp? (Soraka's heal can nullify your whole combo)

There are some cases when you'd still want Nami to take Ebb and Flow for its powerful sustain.

TL;DR,

Tidecaller's is a pretty good skill to max if you're going to be aggressive (kill lane). Ebb and Flow is more for sustain lanes.
