McIntyre's Competitive Lucio Build

Standard build for Lucio based around ride walling as much as possible to provide peel for your team and to generate pressure on the enemy team. Using sound barrier when the fight is happening not before or after, think of it like a dshield when your team looks to be in trouble. It's also important to remember that speed can save your team just as much as healing can, so make sure to switch between the two and don't stay on one.



Tech Talents:

Level 13 Depends on enemy team but choose accordingly 
1
Accelerando
Wall Ride's Movement Speed bonus gradually increases to 40% over 4 seconds while Lucio maintains its effect.
4
Chase the Bass
Quest: After hitting 20 enemy Heroes with Soundwave, increase the arc by 50% and the range by 20%.
7
Party Mix
Quest: Support allies with your aura for a total of 8 minutes (supporting multiple allies rewards more time). Reward: Increase its radius by 20%.
10
Sound Barrier
After a 1 second delay, grant yourself and all nearby allied Heroes a 1296 point shield that rapidly decays over 6 seconds.
13
Hard Style
Gain 25 Armor while you have the Wall Riding movement speed boost, reducing damage by 25%.
16
Rejuvenescencia
While Amp It Up is active, Crossfade’s Healing Boost heals for an additional 2.5% of the target’s maximum health per second.
20
Encore
Using Crossfade while Amp It Up is active resets the duration of Amp It Up back to its max duration. This can only occur once per cast.
Balance Patch - 8/8/17

Hey McIntyre, (sorry in advance for the wall of text)

I have been a long time fan. Your Genji guide helped me improve so much on Genji and HotS in general. I wanted to ask you a couple questions about your build because I have been paying a lot of Lucio and having pretty good success (58.2% WR on 67 games), but I take different talents than you, Bakery, and Cris. So, I'm sure I'm wrong; I just don't know why (probably because I am low Gold).

Anyway, I go the Maximum Tempo quest at 1. I usually complete it before 10 (some times as quick as 2-4 minutes lol). I'm sure that's because noobs die more than pros. But every game I feel like 60% move speed for my whole team is SUPER impactful.

At 4 I have been going Subwoofer. I have found it really helps for peeling (like when someone gets pulled by garrosh) or for setting up kills.

At 7 I always go Sonic Amplifier. I can see why 20% increased radius all the time can be really good but I feel like I have the 50% when I really need it (e.g. during team fights or when we are escaping).

And finally at 20 I tend to go Synaesthesia Auditiva just because there is so much cc with people playing jaina, KT, rehgar etc.

I'm sorry for the long comment. I really appreciate any advice you have time to give. Keep up the great work!
