Skill Upgrade Priority
First Priority – First Skill: Justice Blades
Main Priority – Ultimate Skill: Bravest Fighter
Least Priority – Second Skill: Jungle Warrior
First Skill + Second Skill + Basic Attacks
This will be your early game combo before reaching level four. It’s ideal to keep poking your target with the First Skill until your Bravery stack becomes nearly full. If it’s almost full, do the three consecutive attacks where your shield will be activated.
Ultimate Skill + Basic Attack + Second Skill + First Skill + Ultimate Skill 3x
Use this combo if your Bravery stack is nearly full. Hitting an enemy with the Ultimate Skill will make it full and dealing a Basic Attack will greatly damage your target and give you a shield. You can proceed with the next attacks more confidently knowing that you have a shield advantage.
Second Skill + First Skill + Ultimate Skill + Basic Attack + Second Skill + First Skill + Ultimate Skill 3x
This long combo is recommended if your Bravery stack is less than half. Making three solid hits to an enemy hero will instantly fill it and then you can proceed with the Heavy Sword Stance attacks.
Poke. Despite being a melee hero, Lapu-Lapu’s long-range First Skill, blink from his Second Skill and shield from his Passive Skill gives him a poking advantage. Start by throwing your Justice Blades when the enemy gets near and then move back out to avoid retaliation. Keep doing it until your target’s HP becomes less than half. Once your Bravery Blessing stack gets full or is almost full, you can now do a combo of your First Skill, Second Skill and enhanced Basic Attack that will give you a shield.
Farm. Make the most out of farming minions by hitting the enemy hero with your First Skill as well. If your area is clear, the quickest way you can clear out the minion wave is by picking the time they’re all lined up straight and then using your Second Skill and First Skill.
Gank. Take advantage of Lapu-Lapu’s stun to prevent an enemy from escaping a gank. Use his Second Skill to pass through thin walls so you can quickly chase your target. It’s best to have a full Bravery Blessing stack before engaging in a gank.
Team Fight. While Lapu-Lapu has a Shield, Damage Reduction and Crowd Control immunity advantage, don’t be too confident when facing a large group of enemies. In a large-scale team fight, allow the tank to initiate the clash and absorb most of the attacks before jumping into the battle to ensure survivability. If it’s a 2 on 2 battle only, that’s when you can consider initiating a fight.
