Nocturne Stats

Lucian usually has a similar longest kill spree as his opponent does. Commonly, Lucian takes less damage than Nocturne. This is usually reflective of differing health capacities, but it can also show that the one champion has less agility and thus is unable to kite away from further harm when poked or engaged.

Lucian commonly totals much more CS than Nocturne. Champions that don't get much CS typically don't have to have much CS to be effective. They are able to scale properly off their skills and stats alone. However, champions with plenty of minion kills, such as ADCs, typically need a lot of gold to be useful. In either case, work to top the values shown here to do well.
