Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png Flash is a fundamental need for Lux. Over all Lux is a slower champion and many can catch up if her mana is low, or she is unable to snare her opponent. It can also be used to flash underneath her turret and snare her opponent beneath it if at all possible. 

14.pngI understand that Ignite is normally not used by a support but using ignite to help your adc when in trouble, instead of using it to get a kill will help bot lane out and can help the ADC obtain kills.

Lux has a snare, and most of the time this is more useful than her shield. Her E, can come in handy for quick minion kills and when the opponent is snared it can course substantial damage.  The E can also be used to lower a opponents health slowly, and rapidly in early game. 

Lux's ULT is really important to have early game, it can help with behind turret kills and to lower a champions health significantly for a alley to over power their opponent, normally with a snare involved. 

Q- 50/60/70/80/90 Mana
  - 15/14/13/12/11 second cool down reduction
This ability snares the opponent, they are unable to move during this time, and causes damage upon impact. 

W- 60 mana
   - 14/13/12/11/10 Cool down reduction
This gives at least two alley champions a small bubble shield while Lux is distant from the champions.

E-70/85/100/115/130 Mana
  - 10 second cool down reduction
This attack can be manually set off or automatically depending on when you decide to strike. It also lowers movement speed. 

R- 100 mana
  - 80/65/50 Cool down reduction
This is Lux's UlT, it is awesome. While you level it up the distance it can reach becomes greater, therefore you can attack an opponent from a fare distance away. It is a large lazer beam that takes around 2 seconds to perform. 

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

    When Lux may need to tank up a little bit if opposing team has a strong support and top lane tanks.


2003_32.png Have at least one health potion when starting with Lux. If you can keep her health up and keep her going for as long as possible the more she can attack and assist and keep up with other champions.(Especially if you are behind on in-game level).

3303.png This can help with gold income early game, it helps to insure Lux can advance with Ap items and boots earlier game. If you are consistently hitting your opponent with E you should gain gold quicker and consistently. 

 1001.pngLux is not a quick champion. The need for more movement speed is critical in early game, the reason being is to escape, to ambush and to run and move around the map easier. Upgrade to 3020.png early game if possible.  
2049.pngFor any support a Sight stone is useful, it grants 5 charges of long lasting wards which get replenished when back at base. It also grants a large sum of health.

3027.pngThe earlier you can obtain Rod of Ages the better. This item stacks well for Lux and helps with mana, and ability power. You can obtain it through items such as1026.png +3010.png . 
3089.png This item is a must for most Ap using champions. Late game if Lux does not have Ap items her abilities will be too weak to affect tank champions which can severely hurt her team. It is obtainable by buying 1058.png +1026.png+1052.png

3285.png Is a great item for Lux, it is not necessary to have early game when playing support, more for mid lane Lux, but should be obtained during the game. I personally find it the easiest item to obtain during a game so at times it is built first. All depends on the game and your personal choice.  It is obtained by 1058.png+3113.png


3157.pngThis is a good item to have early game, though obtain after rod of ages. 1052.pngStart by getting this than upgrade it to 3191.pngwhich is than with 1500 gold or so can be upgraded to the hourglass. This gives 100ap straight up and is very useful with Lux's abilities. 

3116.png This item is amazing for Lux, gives her 400 or so more hp and 100 ap. This provides lux with a bit more stability during game, and also makes her a wonderful support when she doesn't show squishy and can block some of those shots for opponents without worrying about dying to them.



You can build her in any order to your preference and of course this is my personal opinion but I guarantee she will be very, very fun to play and powerful, making you a great asset to the team with these items.

VS

Ahri

Medium

If you stay far away from Ahri Lux can over come her, but if Ahri has a a lot more ability power she can become nearly impossible for Lux to beat, though with partners Lux can help with the capture of Ahri when she is to run or Ult away. 

VS

Annie

Easy

Though if not careful annie will have the upper hand, if you consistently pressure and poke her whether as supports or mid lanes, use your combo you should have a field day with an annie and get fed pretty quick. 

VS

Ashe

Easy

Against Ashe, Lux's snare and then an ult can do significant damage to ashe early game. Ashe is a slow champion making it easier for Lux to perform  a q, w than r before ashe can make it to safety. On another note, if Ashe is about to ult Lux, you could be in a spot of bother as lux can be very squishy early game. 



playing as a duo is a good combination as they both have the ability to stun players, with lux being able to snare and ashe using her Q is a very good combination. Also, both champions can stay a fair distance away from the opposing team giving them a little bit more time if an error occurs.

VS

Bard

Medium

Bard can become a pain for lux support players. Bard roams so always watch your surroundings and you need to ward well around bot lane and dragon to insure you and your adc do not get trapped. 

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard

This champion is your worst nightmare when under enemy tower. Stay clear of him as much as possible.

VS

Caitlyn

Medium

Depending on how aggressive the opposition Caitlyn is playing depends on whether you as a lux can take her on. If she is an aggressive Caitlyn try and let her push under tower than snare her and try and make her auto attack you so tower is attacking her. This can help your ADC get the kill. Though that's a standard tactic against a Caitlyn if you can prevent her from obtaining kills you should find it an easy game. If she is playing extremely defensive poke her, don't worry too much on kills unless your ADC feels comfortable enough depending on the opposition support. Take tower as a main priority. 

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Both are similar in how they strike their opponents, but if both have Ult, become unstoppable under a turret. 

VS

Janna

Easy

Early game lux support has alot more poke and control of lane than Janna. Try and not be hit by her Q and you should find it that her ADC will have troubles attacking you and your ADC in lane. With a Janna Support you may find more ganking in lane so ward well and you should find it easy to take on Janna in a 1v1.

VS

Lucian

Easy

Lucian is a good champion for ADC with Lux sup. Both can hit a target from behind minions which helps, and Lux's snare comes in handy for Lucian to commit close range combat. 

VS

Miss Fortune

Medium

Lux is a support that would be better off behind minions, unlike Morgana. This makes you an easy target for MF. But poke her and push lane hard, making sure your ADC gets farm and stopping the opposition support from attempting any attacks will help lane and may create a nice easy situation for a gank. Especially since MF has little way to escape if you play your cards right.

VS

Morgana

Easy

This is a fun match up, stopping your opponents left right and center. Lux and Morgana will both obtain a substantial amount of kills if played together on the same team.

VS

Taric

Hard

Taric can become a pain for lux. No matter what he will stun you at some point even if you stun him. This will trap you more than him as he is a very tanky support. This means you have to build lux the way as shown in this guide to ensure that you scare him off with damage and you can last longer in the fight. 

VS

Thresh

Medium

Thresh can grab hold of Lux and drag you under turret, this can be extremely deadly for Lux, but with distance she can use her E to gradually cause damage and than finish with an Ult. But once Thresh grabs you its very hard to get way, especially if you don't have flash available.  

Thank you Back to Top

This guide can also be used for mid lane Lux too.  Though she seems to have a small amount of support items, when player her this way you will become a fantastic support Lux. You will have a strong early game and a very strong to unstoppable late game.
Thank you for reading.
