Summoner Spells Back to Top

I always like to take 4.png on Lux because of the lack of mobility. If i want to play agressively in lane and have more killing potential, i take 14.png. For more possibilities on roaming, 12.png is a great choice. It allows you to gank other lanes easily or get back to your lane fast after ganking another. You can also recall while in lane, shop, heal, and then quickly teleport back to lane, not missing much xp or gold. 7.png is another great spell to pick if you like a passive playstyle. You can also heal bait people to doing something stupid, or maybe even use it aggressively. 3.png is great for shutting down assassins.

Basic skill order. Sometimes you might want to take Q first. For example vs melee mids, you can get a few autoattacks and a passive proc in for free.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    A basic start for almost every situation
    Another nice start for an early Chalice of Harmony
    If you want to play passive early and have a counter like Yasuo, or if you are against someone with high poke

Core Items

    Basic Lux build
    For more mobility
    Neat item for extra damage and movespeed.

Situational Items

    If getting focused hard
    Compliments passive procs.

VS

Ahri

Medium

You should be fine early, but after level 6 she might be a trouble. Bait her ultimate down and then hit her with your spells as she has no dash except her ult

VS

Anivia

Medium

Don't get too close to her, and you should be fine. You might have a hard time popping her egg, so prepare for it.

VS

Annie

Easy

Don't go close and you will wreck her. If you get too close, she will easily win trades. 

VS

Brand

Hard

Your lack of mobility makes Brand able to hit his abilities easily. Start with Flask, or maybe even boots. Just try to keep hitting your q->e combo, and after level 6 use your ultimate often to force him out of lane.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Cho'Gath is a natural counter to lux. Thankfully though he is a rare pick.

Make him push the lane and then ask for ganks. Don't try to 1v1 him.

VS

Diana

Medium

Poke her early game to get an advantage and force her out of lane. When she goes to hit a minion, hit her. After level 6 she becomes a huge problem to you, because she can just assasinate you and not take much poke because of her shield. Play agressive early and watch out after level 6.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Ezreal has a dash to dodge your skillshots with. On the other hand though, you have longer range to poke him. Use that as an advantage.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

Play extremely safe early - mid game, and in lategame, ward every place to see his surprise ults, and then bait a bad fight for them.

VS

Fizz

Hard

Fizz is a counter to lux due to his mobility to dodge skillshots with.

His e costs a lot of mana, keep that in mind.
Don't get too close to him, and keep poking him down from afar.

VS

Gragas

Hard

Stay afar, poke him and watch out for his ultimate.

VS

Heimerdinger

Easy

You don't need to get close to the donger to deal damage to him, solving the turret problem. Stay back and poke him to win.

VS

Karma

Medium

Don't let her come close to you, or she will wreck you. stay far and make her push. Then ask for ganks and kill her.

VS

Karthus

Medium

Pretty much the better skillshotter will win. If you win though, watch out for his passive.

VS

Kassadin

Hard

Kassadin is a really hard matchup for lux. Make him push early and then ask for ganks. Shut him down early, and try to finish before he 1-hits every squishy champion.

VS

Katarina

Medium

Skill matchup. Some people say Katarina counters Lux while others say Lux counters Kat.

Don't let her come close and poke her. If she uses shunpo, make sure to use your combo as she can't dodge it that easily.

VS

Kayle

Medium

If you get too close to her, you will probably die. Try to poke her from afar. Remember her ultimate, as she can easily block your ultimate with it.

VS

Kennen

Medium

If he is trying to engage on you with his e, snare him so he doesn't get close.


VS

LeBlanc

Medium

She won't be able to oneshot you if you stay afar.


VS

Lissandra

Medium

Lissandra's range is really low, and you can abuse that by poking her from far away.

Don't use your q for agressive purposes though, as she can engage on you with her claw if you use it.

VS

Lux

Medium

skill matchup, (duhh) the better skillshotter wins. Maybe rush abbysal sceptre?

VS

Malzahar

Hard

Malzahar's poke almost forces you to start with a flask.

buy Quicksilver sash to counter his ultimate.

VS

Mordekaiser

Hard

Don't try to kill him in lane. Instead, roam as quick as much as you can.

VS

Morgana

Hard

Morgana can make your abilities useless with her shield.

Try to dodge her abilities, and use your's when she has used her shield badly.
Also remember to watch out for her ultimate.

VS

Nidalee

Hard

Nidalee's pounce makes this a really hard matchup. don't try to fight her with low hp, 

because her cougar mode q would slap you in the face for a nice 300 hit early game.
Try to hit your skillshots when she has used pounce, allowing you to hit them more easily.

VS

Ryze

Easy

I don't really have much advice against the new ryze :(

VS

Swain

Hard

Swain has no mobility, so you can hit your skillshots more easily. 

you can also make him push the lane, and then ask for a gank.

VS

Syndra

Medium

poke her and make her push. She has no dash to ecape ganks with.

VS

Talon

Hard

Play safe, make him push and ask for ganks before level 6.

VS

Teemo

Easy

Teemo's range is really small, which you can use as your advantage.

Poke him, and then burst him after level 6 with your q->e->r->e pop combo.

VS

Twisted Fate

Medium

Twisted fate roams easily, making a bit of a challenge for you.

You can run after him, or push mid turret while he's gone.

VS

Veigar

Hard

Watch our for his stun and his ultimate, if you get hit by one of those, you are probably dead.

You can kill him before level 6 though.

VS

Vel'Koz

Medium

Another skillshot matchup.

save your flash for his ultimate.
When he ulties, flash behind him. He wont be able to turn fast enough.

VS

Viktor

Hard

play safe and ask for ganks. try to dodge his laser, as that is his primary damage tool.

VS

Vladimir

Hard

VS

Xerath

Medium

skill matchup. whoever is better with skillshots, probably wins. abbysal scepter rush is a nice idea.

VS

Yasuo

Hard

Yasuo has everything to counter you with. make him waste his wall and then engage on him. stay afar so he cant hit you with his q.

VS

Zed

Hard

Zed has a shadow to dodge your skillshots with, but it is on a long cooldown.

abuse the cooldown and play agressive while its down.

VS

Ziggs

Medium

save your flash to dodge his ultimate.

VS

Zyra

Hard

Early Game Back to Top

Play your lane as well as you can.

If you end up doing poorly, you can either roam or just hug your turret.

Mid Game Back to Top

If you are doing bad, people are probably coming to mid to help you.

Don't start to blame them for taking your cs and pushing the lane. That's what midgame is.
If you are doing well, you should roam to other lanes to help them.
gank them, and maybe push your own lane at the same time by using your ultimate there if its a huge minion wave.

A nice strategy is just shoving your lane, then ulting bot to help them.

Late Game Back to Top

Lategame is all about teamfighting and picks (catching someone off-guard.)

watch out for picks, because if you get caught, it may lose the whole game for you.
On the other hand, try to create picks yourself. Your q is a powerful tool lategame.
Your ult will probably have a low cooldown (30-45 seconds) by now so you can use it to clear minion waves or poke the enemy team. If you feel like a teamfight is about to happen, save the ult for it.

Hitting your abilities Back to Top

All of Lux's abilities should be aimed a bit towards the direction you predict the enemy to move towards.

like so:
E a bit behind the enemy, as they will naturally want to dodge by walking backwards
lux kuva 1.jpg

Q a bit towards the direction they are walking in
lux kuva 2.jpg

r also a bit towards the direction they are walking in
lux kuva 3.jpg
