Talent Highlights:

storm_ui_icon_dehaka_essencecollection.pngSlip – Fighting in tight quarters and looking to make a quick escape, setup a powerful Soundwave, or get a better position in the team-fight? Slip grants a huge movement speed bonus when passing through enemy Heroes while using Wall Ride, enabling Lúcio to make crucial plays in the heat of battle.                                                                                                      

storm_ui_icon_dehaka_burrow.pngRejuvenescência-  Healing allies for a percentage of their maximum health while Amp it Up is active, Rejuvenescência makes up for Lúcio’s slow healing by giving a huge burst of health to all nearby allies, especially high-health Warriors.                                                                                                                          

storm_ui_icon_dehaka_brushstalker.pngBoombox – One of the minor downsides to Lúcio’s Crossfade auras is their limited range. Creating a second area of Speed and Healing Boost, Boombox allows Lúcio to heal and buff more allies from a comfortable distance.

Friends and Foes:

Works well with:

Arthas.jpg Lúcio’s Speed Boost is a great enabler for heroes who are normally limited by a lack of mobility.  Arthas benefits greatly from Lúcio’s ability to quickly get him into the fray so that he can slow the enemy team and enable additional teammates to burst them down.

Tassadar_Crop.jpg

Some of Lúcio’s weaknesses are that he lacks wave clear and single-target burst healing.  Tassadar shores both of these up nicely with Plasma Shield and Psionic Storm.  When these two heroes are on the same team, it can be very difficult for opponents to find a good kill target.

Zarya_crop.jpg

Similar to Tassadar, Zarya pairs well with Lúcio in that she can negate enemy burst damage.  Heroes who work well in multi-Warrior compositions also pair well with Lúcio, as they are tough enough to survive enemy burst damage while also providing a strong front line for Lúcio to hide behind.

Struggles Against: 

Diablo_Crop.jpg

Heroes who can quickly close the gap like Diablo can give Lúcio as hard time, as they are often difficult to kite.  Lúcio also has an unfortunate penchant for being near walls, which is something that Diablo can easily take advantage of with Shadow Charge.

Zeratul_Crop.jpg

Lúcio doesn’t have much Health, and his main source of protecting himself is via his knockback and increased Movement Speed.  Zeratul preys on low-Health targets and has multiple ways to close the gap, making him an especially difficult foe to shake off.

LiMing_Crop.jpg

Lúcio is fantastic for long, drawn out fights, but struggles against enemies who can quickly burst their targets down.  If even one of Lúcio’s teammates gets too low, Li-Ming can quickly take advantage and kill his entire team before he has the time to bring their Health pools back up.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this detailed look at Lúcio​, Heroes. We’ll see you in the Nexus! ​
