Summoner Spells Back to Top

- Flash is very important and should be picked every game. As Lux you have no escape skill so the extra mobility is neccessary.

- Barrier is usually the second spell I run, but Heal is also a fine choice.

- If you feel comfortable without another defensive summoner spell you can also pick teleport. This will give you better roaming potential, but it will also put pressure on your opponents because they always have to be aware of the fact that you could show up any moment. 

- Exhaust is also a possibility although there are many champs in mid lane with very long range like Ziggs and Xerath where Exhaust won´t help you as much as heal would. It is great to counter assassins like Ahri and Syndra.

- Ignite is also a viable choice however as Lux you often aren´t in range to cast it anyway.

Masteries Back to Top

I go 12/18/0 to reach Thunderlords in the Cunning Tree as it is the best keystone for Lux because it is so easy for Lux to trigger it in lane. I run Feast in the ferocity tree because the added sustain helps in lane. I run Bounty Hunter over Oppressor because the moment you kill 3 different champions Bounty Hunter outclasses Oppressor. The only difficult part is to get those 3 different kills. If you think you will struggle killing a large part of their team Oppressor will work fine and will in fact always be stronger in the early game since you can make use of it by yourself. 

I run Precision over Intelligence because I think 40%CDR are enough and the added Magic Pen helps you One-Shot people who lack MR.

Passive: Lux passive is a key part to her damage and burst combo and it will take some time to get used to it. It does a good amount of damage and helps Lux to win most level 1 trades. It is also a good farming tool since it works on minions too. 

Q Light Binding: This is your cc ability and the key to land your combo. It has a range of 1175 and travels with a moderate speed. You will need practise to land this spell, but if you land on an opponent´s carry the results will be devastating because the snare is long enough to land your full combo. While this spell does more dmg than your E it is way harder to land and gives you less waveclear. That is why I max it second. However I like to take a point in it at  Lvl 1 because cc abilities will be very helpful in a level 1 fight. You can also choose to not skill anything until you are in lane and then start with E because it will be more useful there.

W Prismatic Barrier: A skill which is very hard to master, but if you can land it on 3 to 5 members of your team you will negate so much dmg because the shield is very strong late game. A very underrated skill in my opinion, but if used correctly it will be as effective as two Locket of the Iron Solari on a way shorter CD. I max it last because after all you still prioritize dmg over utility and you will need maxed Q and E for your combo in the mid game.

E Lucent Singularity: Your main dmg and pushing source. It can be used for pushing and poking your opponent, just make sure to aa too to activate your passive. The zone control this spell gives is amazing and the slow is also not too bad. It should always be maxed first for waveclear and poking.

R Final Spark: The spell people think about first when they hear Lux. It has a very short CD and very long range. It gives you great objective control as it activates your passive and can be combined with your E and Q for maximum damage. The amount of Barons and Dragons you can steal with this spell is very high and your opponents will think twice about going for it with Lux being alive. As with every ult level it up at 6,11 and 16.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Standard start for any AP Mid. Unless you feel very uncomfortable for example if you play vs Zed or Talon this will be your start in any game.

Core Items

    1st buy will pretty much always be this item as it gives you mana for lane and is very cheap
    Core Build. This build will give you a good amount of CDR and damage to go towards the 20 minute mark.
    I usually go for a deathcap next because it increases you damage by a lot. I only go Luden´s Echo if I base and have just the right amount of gold to purchase it. However most of the times I get Luden´s after I finish my Deathcap and my Void Staff
    Void Staff is usually my fourth item. However if I see that the enemy isnt buying MR then you can delay it and get Luden´s before getting Void.
    FInal Build: This is your core build which you pretty much want to get in almost every game. The last item slot can be used according to the situation in game.

VS

Akali

Medium

Akali will punish you for every mistake you make. Once she hits Lv 6 be aware of her all ins. NEVER use your binding unless you are sure it will hit otherwise you will die. Try to punish her early. Farm safely and consider upgrading your trinket early to counter her W

VS

Diana

Medium

You will not be able to kill her because of her shield unless you get jungle help. However she can kill you if you mess up. Avoid her Q and you will be safe.

VS

Fizz

Medium

A lot of people think Fizz destroys Lux, but that is not the case everytime. You have to play smart and thoughtful and you will win this lane. Fizz E will help him to dodge your Q every time and then he will kill you with an all in. Never use your Q when he has his E. Consider barrier over heal as the debuff of his W will be annoying and it is easy to predict when his damage will hit you. Zhonyas is great to prevent the damage from his ult

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

Heimerdinger is always annoying as his turrets push and push and push. But if you ever land a Q on him he will blow up. Your shield will help you survive his turret damage just be aware of the big turret.

VS

Karthus

Easy

Karthus wants to farm in lane. He is very squishy and can be punished easily. Make sure to pressure him early to delay his items as most Karthus buy an early RoA and/or a tear

VS

Kassadin

Medium

Kassadin is weak pre 6 so try to pressure him with your jungle during that time. Once he hits 6 make sure to not waste your q because otherwise he can harrass you easily. 

VS

Katarina

Hard

Katarina will kill you if you ever move too close to her when she has her ult up. Punish her weak Lv 1-5 and deny her CS then you will have a chance to fight back.

VS

LeBlanc

Hard

You will get crushed by a good Le Blanc. It is sad to admit it, but theres almost nothing you can do. She can juke your spells and burst you down before you have a chance to fight back. If you make it out of laning face without dying you did great. Push whenever she tries to roam

VS

Lulu

Hard

Lulu´s shield and ult will negate almost your whole damage and she can pressure you with her Q and aa´s. Never trade AA´s with her as you will lose due to her passive. Stay safe and farm.

VS

Lux

Medium

Mirror match not much to say here. 

VS

Orianna

Medium

Skill match-up but you have the stronger mid game. Try to abuse her lack of mobility with your q. Orianna outscales Lux going into the lategame so try to get an advantage early

VS

Syndra

Medium

A very tricky match up. You need to avoid her skillshots in order to win this lane. You can kill her with a full combo but so can she. DO NOT trade with her at level 1 though because a lot of Syndra´s like to all in at level 2 which you wont be able to survive if you traded at level 1 

VS

Talon

Hard

Very hard match-up because he has every tool to destroy you. Stay safe and farm and make sure to inform your team whenever Talon tries to roam. Get an early Zhonyas it will help greatly vs Talon

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

He can clear waves faster than you which can be a little bit annoying but shouldnt be too big of a problem. Be careful once he hits level 6 because his ult does a lot of damage. 

VS

Zed

Hard

Zed´s all in is deadly especially with his ult. He can dodge your skills with his shadow. It will also be very hard for you to zone him because he has a very safe skill to farm with. Consider rushing a Zhonyas

VS

Ziggs

Hard

Ziggs will outpush you and his poke is very strong. Will most likely end up being a farm lane

In game tricks and tips. Back to Top

In lane your main goal is to farm. Never miss last hits because you poke your opponent. However it is not wrong to poke him. A simple trick is to put you E under him for the slow, then aa and while the aa is flying activate your E. That way your opponent wont have a chance to avoid the damage of your passive because a lot of people will walk away from you if you hit them. This also procs your thunderlords which makes this a great poking tool. 

Once you hit level 6 do not be afraid to use your ult. It has a very low cd even at rank 1. Use it to clear waves before you want to go back. By the time you return to lane your ult will probably be up in 30 seconds.

Your main combo is to hit somebody with your Q and then follow with E and R. That way you will almost 1shot their carries while being completely safe. As Lux it is very important to roam from time to time. It is very easy to go bottom and wait for your support to land CC. That way you will land your Q for sure and pick up some easy kills.

A very easy and moneysafing tip is to buy a pink ward at your first back and place it in either at your jungle entrance or somewhere hidden in the river. I have seen Pink Wards surviving for almost 20 minutes and only imagine how much money this vision saved you.

Lux is a difficult champion to play as it takes time to master her skillshots. You will need some practice but once you have the experience playing her you will see the impact you can have on a game. After all the best feeling is knowing that you just won your team the game by blowing up their ADC :)


I hope you find my guide helpful and will enjoy playing Lux as much as I do. I would love to get some feedbacks as this is my first guide. Also I´m german so I´m sorry if anything isn't easy to understand.
