Lancelot Guide Build – Tips and Tricks

Lancelot Skill Tips & Tricks

Passive – [Soul Cutter]

For every 10s, Lancelot will complete the fencing move ‘surgical promise’, his next basic attack will make the target defenseless, Lancelot will deal an extra 20% damage to defenseless enemies.

Recommended to be used on stunned enemies to deal more damage, and the jungle monsters as well.

Skill 1 – [Puncture]

Charges towards the targeted direction dealing 100/130/160/190/220/250 points of physical damage,the target will be etched with a sword mark, if the target hit did not have a sword mark then Puncture’s cooldown will refresh Which is awesome in Combos, While in Combat make sure you hit the target so you can use it twice, Maybe 3 time’s Combo if you killed the target what ever it was. Works On Enemies & Minions as well.

I recommend to Use Puncture after the Second Awesome Ability to distract the enemies.

Skill 2 – [Thorned Rose]

Performs an amazing sword technique within an area that may strike enemies up to 3 times, dealing 250/290/330/370/410/450 physical damage and slowing enemy by 3% for 1s on each hit. The slow effect stacks.

In My point of view Thorned Rose is the Best Ability for Lancelot in dealing damage to the nearby enemies if positioned well , and While the team is Engaging you Better turn your focusing mode on and try to position it very well in the center of the fight area, you go use it first then you hit the Ulti real quick .. We will get to that ”Ultimate”part in less than a minute,
Also We can use Thorned Rose to farm minion’s real quick and the Jungle monster’s in earlier game it’s very Powerful especially when we buy the ”Hunter’s knife” to increase the damage to the jungle monsters ,so there is No need to use.

Skill 3 (Ulti) – [Phantom Execution]

After a short period of charging, Lancelot performs a executioner’s strike in a forward direction, he is invincible throughout the process, dealing 400/600/800 points of physical damage to his enemies. Used as well to dodge the ultimate attack of the following heroes.

Note: Stay away From (Akai’s) Ultimate, don’t even try to attack him with the first and third ability it won’t work and the best way to escape Gord’s Ultimate. is to get behind him and kick his butt.

Skills Combination/Combos

While engaging Solo or with the teammates. First Hit the second ability to make damage then the first ability to make some combos and to distract the enemy, then finish him with the Ultimate if he still alive then hit the second ability again.

So Go 2~1~3~2

Skill Leveling Order

At early game add the second ability first , so you can farm minions as fast as you can, and its very useful in dealing extra more damage at any enemy that tries to dive with his teammates at first remember to max the 2nd ability to reduce its cooldown and mana consume, then add the first ability followed by the Third ability at Lv4.

Strengths and Weaknesses


  • His Ultimate is very useful in ganks, While team fighting u can disable Multi Enemies if positioned well.
  • His damage is insane in all  game levels no matter he is just started or not.
  • So awesome in clearing minions waves.
  • Looking so freaking awesome!


  • At earlier game just stick to jungling , do not try to engage with a single skill, do not go solo at first.
  • Always watch your back ’cause enemies targeting him first,’cause lance is so annoying.
  • Focus while casting your abilities missing the enemies equals your death, if you missed you better start running.
  • Really squishy.
  • Low CC.

Lancelot Assassin Build

Item 1 – [Bloodlust Axe]

Bloodlust Axe

When skills cause damage, heals 15% of damage as HP for the hero. Every assassin needs a lifesteal item/sustain item. Period.

Item – 2 [Magic Shoes]

Magic Shoes

Lancelot needs to maximize his cooldown & Moving speed to be efficient in the battlefield.

Item – 3 [Hunter Strike]

Hunter Strike

Increase movement speed 30% after killing a hero. Lasts 2s. With this, Lancelot is capable of spamming his skills due to the CD reduction and the movement speed reward of the passive after killing an enemy.

Item – 4 [Magic Blade]

Magic Blade

Gain a shield that absorb 510 – 1350 damage when health is lower then 30% (cd 20 sec).

Item – 5 [Blade of Despair]

Blade of Despair

Deals an extra 10% damage to an enemy in any abnormal state (stunned,knocked airborne, transformed, disabled). The most important item for Lancelot; stacks him up to a godlike state of assassination.

Item – [Immortality][Hunter Strike][Deadly Blade]

Situational based. I like to format my gear setting in this manner so that I can switch accordingly. Hunter Strike gives more physical damage and a boost in cool down duration. Deadly blade is a counter for heal, which is useful if your opponent has an Estes.

But i recommend the ”Immortality” re-spawns you with 15% of health points + shield after death.

Resurrect after 2s of dying, give you 15% HP and shield that absorb 300-1000 pts of damage.

Note: Add items as listed, Bloodlust Axe for  making damage and stealing health, Magic shoes to increase the hero moving speed and reduce the cool down, until you gain some gold and add the others as followed.

Lancelot Emblem Set

[Physical Assassin] Choosing the correct Emblem plays an important role in ranked matches. Make sure you select the correct Emblem before starting the game. The most recommended emblem set for him is the Physical Assassin. But if you upgraded the roamer emblem set its recommended as well Both emblems provide an ample amount of penetration and cooldown Which is what exactly Lancelot needs.

Lancelot Strategy

At early game go either top or bottom lane , build the Jungle skill hunter’s Knife , farm your first minions wave then go hit 1  jungle Monster , go back hit the second minions wave, try to reach level 4 as soon as possible, Always use your second ability first before hitting any monster it won’t deal the maximum damage while not in the specified range, Keep farming using your Ulti at minion just till you build some item’s so you can join the team fight and assist or own some kills.

Mid game after building some items, Now your damage is quit good enough so i suggest you pick a tank or a supporter to move with , try to hide at first use the bushes use the flicker to surprise them with the second ability then hit the combos until the second ability CD reset , then hit it again to deal some massive damage, don’t you ever ignore the teammates calls for help, Once you hear someone’s calling for back up, you have to go ahead and help him, or either you will lose the game while you’re still farming, killing enemies and destroying towers, adds gold as well, stay focused with your teammates.

Late game for Lancelot called its pain time after purchasing all of your item’s, your damage is going to be extremely insane , it doesn’t matter if you go solo or with the team fight, you’ll just kick their sweet little butts. You go first use your second ability then the first ability twice and wait until you see your enemy using his ultimate then you click your ultimate to dodge him or dealing quiet cool damage so he can panic to run or either quiet fighting.


Thanks, That’s it for today, i maybe missed something or have borrowed some ideas from the other guides but after all i spent some effort and hours on this and i’m very happy about it, and i apologize if there is any faults in my English language, after all it’s not my main, so thanks for passing by i hope you enjoyed the guide, and i’ll be waiting for your replies and what do you think about this.
