Best Lulu Abilities Order

When you are managing league of legends supports like Lulu, you might want to max her E help pix from her skill order first. This is your main shielding ability for your ADC. Help Pix also enchants your ADCs damage as well when the pix faerie companion of Lulu throws in some attacks as your ADC attacks. W comes next as it is a great utility ability as it increases your ADCs movement speed and slows the enemy’s.


Finally on Lulu’s skill order is her Q, this can deal tons of damage even if it’s left on level 1. You can extend Lulu’s Q by putting her pix faerie companion to a minion or another champion before casting it. When done correctly, Lulu’s magical bolts will fire from pix wherever he may be attached to.
