Summoner Spells Back to Top

Quick explanation:

Take 4.png and 21.png as long as you play vs an ignite matchup like 103.png105.png134.png238.png(jung=35.png), whenever youre playing against smth else, I recommend to take 7.png, especially for the short MS buff and the 2v2 potential with your jungler.


Detailed explanation:


4.png

4.png is the best summonerspell you can pick, 99_64.png  has no escaping tool, especially when her abilities are on cooldown.
I recommend to use 4.png most likely as an escaping tool. Whenever you use flash to pick a kill, always keep 3 things in mind: 

1) Is the target important enough? (worth gold, fed, high priority target like adc, apc)
2) Are enemies near the target? (they could probably safe him, kill you after you picked the kill)
3) Is there a teamfight incoming? ( when you kill a Champion at min 30+, he should be dead for ~40 seconds+, 4.png has a pretty high cooldown, a wasted flash can lose a teamfight, and even the game.)



3.png
pick this one vs specific champs: 120.png107.png238.png64.png92.png58.pngetc, if you have 2 or more from those guys in the enemy team, feel free to pick 3.png, it absolutely destroys them in teamfights.

12.png

(recommend this one for lux beginners) 12.png gives you the potential to roam more effectively, defend lanes, play a safe lane, split push on late game, get quick into teamfights - all in one it provides you a lot of map control.


21.png

I like to pick 21.png with 4.png  , with "Prismatic Barrier" you're able to absorb a huge amount of burst damage especially from Champions like 238_64.png105_64.png7_64.png134.png....  .


6.png

a lot of ppl asking me why im not playing with ghost, well some times I do. Most likely I just pick 6.png to counter the enemies 6.png, like vs : 112.png69.png  -- whenever they pop it to chase me down, I use it immediately to hold my distance.

7.png

works very well vs no ignite matchups, recommend to pick it against 161.png also for the short MSboost!
(no ignite matchups for example:136.png268.png61.png115.png- those and other wont pick ignite in the most cases)





14.png


99_64.png is a long range AP-Carry, the targets you really want to burst, should never be in such a close range. But if you want to play very aggressive early on, feel free to pick 14.png, i don't recommend it at all.

Quick explanation:


Start with "Q" when invading, otherwise always start with "E" and max it first, followed by maxing "Q".


Detailed explanation:


Now, lets start with the difficult part. 

Skills, and how to use them:
2d3faf8e92c5acf0117bf49945fee55e.png
Her passive seems weak, but well used its pretty strong and useful. Also you should know this things:


eb170e2d8f5a0e4dabe65226386cbf5a.png
(VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION- The animation of this skill can be canceled by flashing- this means you can use "Q"-flash immediately afterwards to land a surprise snare on your target. (perfect for FB'S on lane)


Game deciding skillshot, practise this skill as much as possible, a good snare can decide a gank, a teamfight or even a whole game. 
There are 2 important kind of snares you should know!

1) Aggressive snares -  snipe a target you can burst down, when you hit a snare like that, the enemy carry should be down to 99%, even when he survives, he will have burned cooldowns for sure. (Whenever going for an aggressive snare you always need to check where your team is, missing a snares like that could bring you in a very unkind situation)

2)Passive snares - protect you and your mates with a snare on a high damage or cc target (like 57.png and the other guys that want to hurt you and your friends). (This one is easier to hit because the target will run right into you)

115_64.png is hiding behind a minion, I see people doing this mistake from Bronze to Diamond elo. Use the secound snare to harass him.

or just get important frags on late

3e9da7f2ca38d675fb408805fbb5ea18.png
Prismatic Barrier is a linear, pass-through skill shot that returns to Lux upon reaching maximum range.

Additional Information:

  • Prismatic Barrier will immediately shield Lux upon activation.
  • Hitting an allied champion a second time will stack the shield.
  • If Lux dies before the projectile changes direction, it will fizzle upon reaching maximum range.
  • The projectile decelerates on the way out and accelerates on the way back.

Got nerved to the ground, thats why we max it as last, still can decide a trade or even a whole game. Try to hit as many allies as possible with this Skill in a teamfight. 

Shield safed me 100% in this situation, 25_64.png started to greed, i just had to wait until her shield is down, so i could snare her under the tower and burst her with my full combo.

869fbcc379bf35b26b13dcc919ab62ea.png

This skill can be used to poke, kite and zone enemies.

Poke: Throw as many "E's" as possible on the enemy team before the fight begins. While poking always try to stay in a safe position.

Kite: Let the "E" cook in the area where you want to kite. The slow should win you enough time until your "Q" is up, or your team arrives.

Zone: Let the "E" cook, for example when you play vs melees, let the "E" cook on your minions, this will zone him from last hitting. Or throw it right behind your enemies to block their way.


A pretty smooth combo that you also should practice:
First I started to poke 238.png, after that I knew my E+Ult+passive dmg would be enough to kill him, I threw the "E" on him, obv he took the shortest part to get auf of the circle, but that is exactly where I pointed my laser at.

"E" is your main damage and farm tool on lane, you can use a good "Q" + "E" combo to clear a wave pretty fast:
Also pretty important,  howto farm Wraiths:



In this case i used my "E"-right on the target, after i saw my character is doing the autoattack animation i activated the "E" and got out of his range.

cb30a0fbf9f6372937d7e3b38f1d0975.png
  • Lux can not cast any ability, summoner spell, or item active while she channels.
  • Cast times cannot be interrupted by crowd control effects. During the cast time, Lux will ignore crowd control effects but still suffers from them if the duration persists.
  • If Lux is displaced by a knockback or pull effect during the cast time, the laser will fire from the original point of casting.
    • There is a small area in front of Lux's character model which will still deal damage after being displaced. The rest of the laser however will damage from the original point.
  • Final Spark goes on cooldown when the laser fires, not when Lux begins to cast it. If Lux dies during the cast time, Final Spark will not be placed on cooldown.
Time for your BackToBaseLaser !
I totally love this skill, insane range + high damage + low cooldown..., use this skill to poke/burst down high priority targets. The low cooldown on late game (30 sec with 40% CDR) makes it to a spamable burst skillshot ! Use it as often as possible. And keep in mind - Final Spark lets prok your passives damage!

The dmg on squishys is sometimes just crazy

the hitbox is also much bigger than it appears



Wait till your enemy gets into a bad position to snipe a kill, in this case 115_64.png went right between the tower and a wall, there was no possibility to escape anymore.



2) The combo

 is a high range, poke + burst AP support. Lux is playing 3 rolls at the same time, you need a good decision making to decide what the best way is, to use your skills, you can use every single spell "AKTIV" or "PASSIVE".

AKTIV : "Q"  Snipe enemies before the fight begins ( can bring you into bad position.)
             "E"  Poke the enemy team + slow priority targets.
             "W" Focus in shielding your frontline that is going for the carries ( still try to shield all).
             "R"  Snipe the enemy carries and bring them to low hp/kill.

You should only play aktiv when you got an assassine team that is focusing on picking enemy carries or when the enemy team is pretty tanky without much dmg.

PASSIVE: "Q" Protect you and your ADC, stay with your ADC and pick the enemy front line together.
               "E"  Slow down the enemy frontline and win time for your ADC.
               "W" Focus on shielding you and the ADC ( still try to shield all).
               "R"  Burst down the enemy front line.

You should only play passive when you got a strong/fed adc and the enemy team has a strong frontline.

I recommend to play the first seconds of the fight AKTIV (use "QWER", after your "QWE" is up again stay with your adc and go PASSIVE.



Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Mana Reg + HP ist the best start up!

Core Items

    First back. Dark Seal and the mastery "Secret Stash", with refillable Potion is insane good, this will help you sustain up vs the most matchups!, also it saves you a lot of gold!
    This is what you want to get as quick as possible.
    Finish Lia as fast as possible.
    followed up with a Void stuff
    If the game is going well, upgrade your Soul stealer, some times, if the game is going insane good you also might finish Meja before buying void. (I play with Meja for 99% of my games)
    and at the very end, finish your build with that sweet hat.

Situational Items

    Sometimes you need to build this one as second item, vs Zed, Noc and champs like that!
    Very rar but happens (Vs full squishy teams)
    THOSE ITEMS HERE, WOULD BE INSTEAD OF MEJA
Quick explanation:

Start with 1056_32.png+2009.png2009.png, this will give you enough sustain on lane+3350_32.png 

Rush 3165.png followed by 3285.png/3151.png (depends on playstyle- Ludens more MS, better vs squishy champs like161.png115.png, Liand more HP, a bit more dmg on mid game and strong vs HP champs like 79.png111.png)



Detailed explanation:

Start with 1056_32.png+2009.png2009.png, this will give you enough sustain on lane+3350_32.png 

Always build 3135_32.png as 4th item, in this gamephase enemies will start to stack MR (Aegis,.....)
For the next items you always need to check what your enemies are going to build:
1) Is your game going rly well ? = 3041.png
2) Do they have high burst champs that focus me ? = 3157_32.png Or vs 30_64.png
3) Why no 3285.png? You deal a bit more dmg with 3151.png, up to 200 with a whole combo BUT
4) For my case, im rly used to the MS and waveclear power from 3285.png!, thats why I buy it on the most cases. Still for beginners I recommend 3151.png


My recommended late game build is : 3165.png3151.png3089.png3135.png3157.png3020.png
My favourite build however is :  3165.png3151.png3089.png3135.png3020.png3041.png

Long game and way too much gold? Sell your boots and get a 3100.png


"NOGO":
3116_32.png Lux has 3 spells that can hit enemies. 1) is "Q" it snares the target and dosn't need the slow
                                                                     2) is "E" it slows anyway
                                                                     3) is "R" is the only skill that works well with the slow of the item, but                                                                             its not worth to get it for just 1 skill.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Ahri is pretty squishy, keep poking her with your "E"+autoattack combo. 

After she hits 6 you need to play safe (still try to poke her), ask your jungler for ganks to burn her Ultimate, without her Ultimate Ahri is pretty weak and she wont be able to kill you , as long as you play smart. Always try to stay behind minions to avoid her taunt. 

VS

Akali

Medium

Harass her down until she hits 6, after level 6 , push her out and start to roam. Keep the river warded to avoid getting counter ganked or caught up in the jungle!

VS

Anivia

Medium

Anivia has a pretty low range, she will try to out push you and land a "Q", as long as she doesn't hit you , you can poke her easy and pick her with your jungler, but keep in mind : don't get egg baited ! This lane will most likely end up in a farm lane, try to roam and win other lanes, anivia is pretty hard to stomp.

VS

Annie

Medium

Annie has a low range, poke her down with your "E", if she tries to get into your range to combo you, try to land a "Q" or zone her with your "E" . Shield incoming damage, if you poked her well early on she will be forced to hug the tower , thats the moment when you push your lane and start to roam. Its pretty important to time her flash, she will try to flash ultimate+stun you, keep your lane warded well because she will try to stun you while the jungler is coming.

VS

Aurelion Sol

Hard

He will push you out at the beginning, dont waste too much mana pushing against that early, you wont be able too. Farm the first waves under your turret, after hitting 5 poke him a bit but dont force a fight until he gets snared. On Mid/Late game he will be tanky with3102.png3116.png, you wont be able to one shot him so dont focus too hard on him, whenever you can land a snare on him do it, but dont waste your ultimate on him if it would only solo hit him.

VS

Azir

Medium

Pretty easy matchup, the only problem could be his combo with azirr.png! Avoid to getting pushed to his tower! He will Push early on, dont waste too much mana pushing against him, try to poke him while pushing the wave.

VS

Brand

Easy

As long as you don't let him harass you too much with his "W" you gonna win. Keep poking him, dodge his skills. Out push him and start to roam. Use your high range to win this lane. He has no skill to escape , if you can land a snare while your jungler is coming he should be dead, but care in a 2 vs 1 situation brand can make a strong turn around, don't stay to close to your jungler to avoid his ultimate damage.

VS

Cassiopeia

Hard

She can destroy you on lane pretty hard, Cassio has a very strong early, dont let her hit her "Q", play passive early and wait for the jungler, she has no escape. Even if you stay some farm behind, in teamfights you will dominate her, she has no chance to get near you, as long as you stay in a good position. Time her flash to avoid  a "sneaky flash ult combo"

VS

Cho'Gath

Medium

Well, dont get eaten.. ^^ played this matchup only 2 times in over 3k games. Its important to dodge his rupture.png! just farm against him and wait for the jungler, land a snare and cash in.

VS

Corki

Hard

This one is a bit tricky, he will always be able to one shot you after hitting 6, its very important to dodge his Q and R's, care whenever he picked up his  rockets, those things deal as much dmg as a rumble ult!, most corky players with play with 3.png or 1.png against you, dont get baited in a fight you wont win! However, if you manage to land a snare on lvl 6+ when he is under 60% take him down, just dont stay in exhaust range!

VS

Diana

Hard

Poke her early as much as you can, even try to pick a kill when she fails and takes to much dmg, after 6 ward your lane as good as possible and dont fight her, she might be able to OS you with 1 combo! As long as you avoid beeing in her range you can beat her!

VS

Ekko

Medium

Poke him early, dodge his ekkoq.png! thats pretty important, he will only be able to outtrade you with hitting this ability, and he will always try to stun you with his ekkow.png, just pay some attention, 90% of the ekko players will hide out of sight, throw the ekkow.png and get you stunned, avoid that!

VS

Fizz

Medium

Can be pretty strong, but maxing your "W" as second will let you absorb most of his burst dmg. Poke him early with "E" autoattack combo, always stay behind your minions ( this will make your minions attack him when he engages) , dont waste your "Q" as long as he didnt used his "Q" + "W". Care in the first 10 min on lane, try to stay with 90%+ Hp on lane, if you get under 50%, and you know his ultimate is up just push the lane fast and get back to base. If you can manage not to die in the first 10 min, you will dominate him in teamfights most likely. Just keep in mind, after 6 he will ALWAYS be able to one shot you hitting his ultimate, its pretty important to dodge it! use your summonerspells well.

VS

Gragas

Hard

His laningphase is pretty strong vs Lux, he has a lot of sustain, a good spell to dodge your spells, lot of dmg, and his ultimate can bring you totaly out of position, keep warding well, in most cases he wont be able to kill you in 1 on 1 as long as you don't get poked too much. Wait for late game, keep farming well, just care for his ultimate. Vs Gragas skill "Q" first, on lvl 2 "E" and on level 3 "W".

VS

Heimerdinger

Medium

After hitting lvl 7 you should be able to "onecombo" his turrets with your luxlightstrikekugel.png+autoattack combo, keep on doing that and farm the hell out of him, you outskill this matchup rly hard!

VS

Jayce

Medium

Play safe until lvl 3, after that keep your Snare up to disengage him and out trade him. Most important part is too dodge his "Q's" while laning.

VS

Karthus

Medium

Farm lane, he will try to farm as much as possible, poke you some times with his "Q" , maybe even try a FB early on. Dodge his "Q" and you will be fine, his "Q" is dealing more dmg when its hitting a single target, you will get less dmg when he hits a minion + you. He is pretty easy to gank, you just need to land a snair and keep poking him. In teamfights try to shield the important targets when he is casting his ultimate.

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Pretty many players are picking Kassa vs Lux, its true that he is strong vs Lux but he wont win his lane when you play smart. Poke him early on, pre 6 he is like a minion with a bit more damage. After he hits 6, Kassa will be pretty hard to gank, nearly impossible, Kassa will try to jump on you and poke you down, but with a lot of practice you can use your "W" when you see his jump animation, practice that and you will be able absorb 70% of his damage all game long. Out push him and start to roam, he has a pretty weak wave clear.

VS

Katarina

Hard

When I started to play Lux in ranked games, I played 90% of my games vs Katas, avoid incoming damage with your shield, dont waste your "Q" when her jump is up, when you use your "E" stay far away from her as long as it is on cooldown. Play this lane safe, try to roam a bit and  wait for late. This line up needs a lot of practic. Vs Kata skill "Q" first, on lvl 2 "E" and on level 3 "W".

VS

Kayle

Medium

Kayle has a high early dmg, combinated with the slow it can kill you early on, its pretty important to stay far behind early on. If you see her running to you, throw a "E" right infront of her, and blow it up when she is going to leave it. This will make you win every trade. On late she will counter your burst, it will be nearly impossible to burst an enemy. Use your ultimate as an AOE poke spell on late.

VS

Kennen

Medium

Pretty strong early because most Kennen players will go some AD early on. Play this as a farm lane, keep poking him as much as possible. Pre 6 you can safe your "Q" till she comes close enough to land it for sure, after 6 use your "E" infront of him when he tries to engage you, the slow will let you escape into a safe position, blow up the "E" right before he leaves it.

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

Poke him early, he will probably (80%..) try to fb you on lvl 2-3, his lvl 2-3 is very strong. As long as you keep your "Q" up he wont be able too, snair him right after he jumped on you. Autto attack him after you got far enough and when the snair is going to end. At the end of the game just stay safe. If you failed early on rush 3157_32.png.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

Very strong burst damage, LB can outplay you pretty easy with her "W". Keep that in mind when you use your spells, most LB's try to kill you at lvl 3 and 6. Vs LB skill "Q" first, on lvl 2 "E" and on level 3 "W". This will make you surv. her lvl 3 burst easy. LB is a pretty weak pusher, after hitting lvl 7-9 out push her from a safe position and start to roam, she will waste a lot of time for the minions.

VS

Lissandra

Easy

Poke her with "E" Autoattack combo.. there is not much else you need to know. Just 3 things. Keep warding well , cause she can pick you kinda fast with her jungler, don't forget she can counter your burst with her ultimate, but since your ultimate has a lower CD you should be fine. When your jungler ganks, throw the snair right into that place where her "E" ends. Practice this a bit and you will be able to pick her easy.

VS

Lux

Medium

To be honest I played this Matchup 2-3 times. But maxing your "W" as secound will give you an big adventure. 

VS

Malzahar

Medium

He has a very low range , but a strong push potential. Poke him early on, he is pretty squishy. Keep your lane well warded because his ultimate + jungler gank is like a 100% kill. If you don't feed him to hard and farmed well you will win this on late game. Since he can never ever get into your range while a teamfight. And you can easy poke/kill him.

VS

Mordekaiser

Medium

VS

Orianna

Medium

Skill matchup! If youre not a good Lux player try to play passive! The only way to out trade her is when she tried to poke you with orianaizunacommand.png+orianadissonancecommand.png and you managed to dodge it. If her combo is still up focus on dodging it. On late the better player will win, both need to dodge the combo or they shall die ^^..

VS

Rumble

Easy

VS

Ryze

Medium

Ryze will get a shield after using ryzeq.png+ryzew.png, also he gets oom pretty fast early on, poke him at the beginning, just be careful, a good ryze might be able to one shot you at lvl 5+! (5AP RYZE OP)

VS

Swain

Medium

VS

Syndra

Hard

Very hard matchup but there are a few trick which will help you, pick MR Flat glyphs, get a 1057.png before finishing 3165.png. Dodge her syndraq.png's and enjoy faming, she shouldnt be able to one shot you anymore, you can outpoke her with E autoattack combo and kill her when she is under 50% with your whole combo! Play her once in a custom game to understand her stun mechanic, this will help you a lot!

VS

Talon

Hard

Start with armor runes and with 2041_32.png, harass him until he hits 6, its pretty important to poke him well early on, after 6 stay safe, dont get poked too much, dont waste your "E" when you stay close to him. Rush 3157_32.png, this will safe you vs his burst. 

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Only matchup I recommend to take 1.png against, use it to avoid a flash+stun gank!

VS

Veigar

Medium

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Take 7.png for the short MS boost to dodge his ult and other skills when needed!

VS

Viktor

Medium

VS

Vladimir

Hard

He is pretty strong vs you, rush 3165_32.png  and you will be fine, this will reduce his heal, and he will be much easier to poke and to kill, dont waste your Ultimate as long as his "pool" is up. Same as your snare. On late be sure you have a 3151_32.png . Since he will have a lot of HP this will work out fine.

VS

Xerath

Medium

VS

Zed

Medium

Pick your armor runes and rush 3157_32.png, this will counter his Ultimate and make you unkillable. (As long as you play smart). Try not to duel him early on , he will out-trade you for sure. Zed is able to push much faster then Lux, so you will have to last hit a lot under the tower. Ward your mid to counter his roam.

VS

Ziggs

Hard

Very strong lane, his poke is insane high, try to stay safe and farm, wait for your jungler and wait for late, if you go to "ham" while laning phase he will snowball the s*** out of you. As long as you leave the lane even you will dominate him on late.


Take 7.png for the short MS boost to dodge his ult and other skills when needed!

VS

Zilean

Hard

Havent played that matchup a lot but, his ultimate pretty much counters yours in a TF, but you have a lower CD, whenever bursting him with your ult, try to hit as many targets as possible.


While laning, farm safe and wait for your jungler.

VS

Zyra

Medium

Keep away from her plants, as long as you find the time you can last hit her plants for the 5g :D, she is pretty hard to out push but easy to gank, land a snare when your jungler is coming and pick up the kill. In teamfights just stay behind your team and shield her AOE dmg.

This ward position I will call W3
ward3.PNG(only ward in this position when your toplaner is warded his lane, otherwise the enemy jungler could come from "Top river site" and you wouldnt even see him coming)

Early game :


Play safe until level 5, don't waste too much mana on poking since your skills don't deal much damage early on. While lasthiting with "E"+autoattack combo always care not to push your lane too much. Care for early ganks, check at the begin of laningphase where the enemies are coming from. For example :

When you see the enemy midlaner and bottom lane are coming from "Bottom jungle zone" , the enemy jungler started at "Bluebuff", that means - he will rush top lane or mid lane from "Top river site".

Otherwise :

In this case ward W2

After level 5 start to harass your opponent with "E"+autoattack combo, always keep enough mana for a full "QWE" combo, you will need it vs a gank. Try to roam when the lane is too pushed. Use your 12.png to roam when you see enemies in a bad position.

Mid game:

You should have finished your core items now, try to pick the enemy tower as soon as possible, keep roaming whenever possible with your jungler. Go for drakes, try to get your team and yourself fed. Don't try too much solo plays, this will need a lot of practise ;). Stay with your team Lux is a strong teamplayer, use this for your advantage.

There are many kind of Mid players out there, but the most popular are :

1) The aggressive pusher - He will totally outpush you, forcing you to waste your mana on minions and probably start to roam by him self. Counter this kind of player with good wards like W1 + W2 and ask your jungler for ganks since he will be in a bad position throw pushing.

2) The passive tower lover - He will play total safe and hug the tower all laning phase long. Care this kind of players wont play aggressive until their jungler is incoming. Use that knowledge for your advantage. After you placed some good wards like W1+W2 you can start to out push him and roam the sh** out of other lanes!

Teamfights /late game Back to Top

Lux has a very strong late game/teamfight potential. She can poke the enemy team before the fights begin, snipe/burst high priority targets, support her whole team while CCing the entire enemy team and deals a lot of AOE damage.

Pros:
Much burst/AOE damage
Decide games with 1 snare

Support whole team
A lot of CC
Can be played in the most teamcombs
Only skill shots
Very funny to play
Coolest ultimate in game

Cons:
Very hard to master
Only skill shots
Needs a lot of practice



In late game you should stay with your team and poke the enemy team, try to snipe (even blind snipe) the enemies. A lucky snipe with your "Q" can decide the game. Always keep in mind not to get in a bad position while spamming "Q's". After you used your "Q" instant follow up with your "E" to get vision, after you see an important target is snared use your "R"!, this should burn a barrier/flash/cleans or even kill a squishy target, even when he survives this will force him to back off(backtobaselaser) and your team can pick objectives. Here are some of my favorite spots where I usually try to snipe the enemies in late game.

This one is perfect when the enemies try to take the tower.

Same as the first one, but care not to waste your snare on wraiths.

Lux has a incredible high amount of burst damage, you can burst down a single target instant (recommend this when a single enemy is very fed) or burst the whole enemy team to low hp..........
... or even sometimes steal a nash..

End Back to Top

This is my experience from over 5000 Lux games, and my road how I got to diamond. I hope I could help you a bit with this guide, keep in mind, just by reading this guide you wont be a pro Lux player, this champ really needs a lot of practice, but its worth to practice her ! She has an unbelievable high carry potential. And its pretty funny to play her (well).
