Summoner Spells Back to Top

If you are new to Lux I would strongly recommend using 21.png Just because many of Lux's counters are bursty champions that normally take 14.png which 21.png counters.I can not count how many times someone has tried to tower dive me and 21.png plus luxprismaticwave.png have saved me and gotten me a double kill (MVP outer mid lane turret). Once you have played Lux enough you may choose to go 14.png although I still run 21.png because even if enemies get away Lux has a humongous range for an mage and can snipe with a luxmalicecannon.png or even just a flash luxlightbinding.png or luxlightstrikekugel.png4.png is pretty sel-explanatory and you take this on most champions.

Masteries Back to Top

So the masteries are pretty basic although you could go all the way down the Ferocity line and pick up deathfire touch. Although because Lux is lockdown and burst champion Thunderlords in my opinion is the best. You could also take Intelligence instead of precision just for the extra CDR.

So these are really simple  just max your luxlightstrikekugel.png first  after that your luxlightbinding.png and last your luxprismaticwave.png. Of course always pick up a point in luxmalicecannon.png. The only thing I ever do differently is sometimes I pick up a point in luxlightbinding.png first depending on who I'm laning against because you can easily proc an early thunderlords while they are stationary.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    These are your typical items when first leaving base.
    If you don't get pushed out of lane this should be your first back.

Core Items

    These are must haves on Lux.

Situational Items

    These are all optional some are defensive others utility and some offensive.

Abbysal Scepter: Any AP mid laner who is beating you in lane.


Mejai's: If you are winning lane, roaming and have picked up a lot of kills get the dark ring before this just to get a couple of stack for low price.

Frost Queen's Claim: If your team or just you want a nice engage. Good for matchup against Talon as it gives you vision.

Lichbanes: Not very popular item but works well with your passive if you're willing to risk getting in auto attack range .

Athenes: Very useful Item against AP. buy this if you are having mana problems and stubborn jungler. Also with the mage rework this item has been given an additional feature where it heals the target of your shield based on how much blood stacks you have. (blood stacks are incredibly easy to charge up on Lux.)

Zhonya's: Incredibly useful active buy this if you're against an AD assassin *cough *cough zed.

Morellonimcon: is a MUST on Lux if their team has a lot of life-steal (jax, akali, strong adc[anyone with bloodthirster or hextech]).

Sorcerer's boots: boots for mages.

Ludens: Stronger poke/AOE damage.

Rabadon's: Must have on most mages.

VS

Annie

Easy

You outrange her and have better poke. If you play this matchup well you can win. To play this well stay out of range from her incredibly strong all-in and watch out for flash ults. Ward well because if you get ganked and the jungler lands enough cc for her to get in range of you, you are most likely dead. Poke with your luxlightstrikekugel.png and don't prock your passive after level 6 as you will be in range of her ult+stun. Always luxprismaticwave.png before trading. 

VS

Azir

Medium

Azir is very much a skill match up. his abilities allow for long range poke similar to your range but what he has that you don't is a gap closer and not to mention a shield if he lands it well. Throughour lane poke with luxlightstrikekugel.png and ou should be able to get level 2 first if so go for a luxlightbinding.png auto luxlightstrikekugel.png auto combo this should be about half health if you have thunderlords. This will force him to farm safely and scare him so that he stays behind his minions. WARD well!!! his ult makes ganks incredibyl scary as he can throw you into one of his allies with azirqwrapper.png+azirewrapper.png+azirr.pngbackwards. If you see any jungler heading towards your lane try to play it safe. your burst damage is much higher than his and try not to stay in range of soldier's auto attacks as the damage will quickly add up. Also remember that his azirewrapper.png cooldown is quite long early so abuse his lack of escapes and defense if he uses it.

VS

Fizz

Hard

Fizz is the largest counter to Lux as he can fizzjump.png out of every ability and he has high mobility which is what Lux lacks. don't bother using luxmalicecannon.png unless he is pinned down using luxlightbinding.png. You can however bait out his fizzjump.png by using your luxlightstrikekugel.png and then re-activating as he hops down. Once his fizzjump.png is on cooldown use your luxlightbinding.png to lock him down. DO NOT I repeat do not try to proc your passive unless all his abilities are on cooldown. He will jump on your face with fizzpiercingstrike.png and use his kit to annihilate you.

VS

Katarina

Hard

With the reworked Katarina she poses an even alrger threat than she did before. Lux is countered by almost any chamion with high mobility and now that katarina is argueably the most mobile champion in the game she is on of your most dificult matchups.

her katarinaewrapper.png is on an incredibly short cooldown when ever she catches a dagger and once she gets going she's almost impossible to stop. Pre-6 is where you have to get your lead don't force it if your not comfortable with your skills but if your evenly matched at level 6 I recommend you stay back and just wait for her to start laying to aggro. Katarina is incredibly feast famine champion if you don't give her the kills she need and try to deny as much farm as possible it will make it difficult for her to become relevant. ALWAYS ping MIAs on katarina she is an incredible roamer. (Ask for Ganks :P)

VS

LeBlanc

Medium

Leblanc is a VERY difficult champion to play against as Lux but if you play it well you CAN win lane. watch out for her level 2 damage as it is much stronger than yours. Her leblancchaosorb.png +leblancslide.png can easily chunk over half your health. Always push when you are in a match-up against Leblanc. It is incredibly difficult for Leblanc to farm under tower without using abilities which gives you windows of opportunities when her leblancslide.png is down. when her leblancslide.png is down attempt an all in. Throw out your luxlightbinding.png and if it lands (even if she is full health) throw out full combo.when you are pushed tell bot not to push too hard and roam down for ez double kill.

VS

Talon

Hard

Do not go close and do not let him roam try to poke till he does not have enough health to confidently roam or all in. If you see him use talonshadowassault.png you better GTFO cause he will assassinate you so fast you might not be able to luxprismaticwave.png his talone.png makes him hard to chase but as lux in lane you are rarely chasing for kills. I find that most of my lane kills often come from the simple combo of luxlightbinding.png luxlightstrikekugel.png luxmalicecannon.png. but still ALWAYS ping MIAs. he is a potent roamer with high damage and high mobility who can easily kill your bot lane and make your lane h**l.

VS

Yasuo

Medium

If you are against a Yasuo you still have a small chance to beat him. He does not have as much mobility as the other champions (smaller range on yasuodashwrapper.png) poking him with luxlightstrikekugel.png is easy but do not try to proc your passive as he will  yasuodashwrapper.pngyasuoqw.png and then continue to auto until you only have a quarter of your health left. Many new yasuo players belive that their wind wall blocks your ultimate and if your new to lux this is not the case as your ult is not a projectile so feel free to attempt snipes :D

VS

Zed

Hard

Playing against a good zed player is bad for any mid laner basically. His kit has everything you could ever want. my recomendation is to build zhonyas this item is SO good on lux not only does it null his ults proc but it gives you cdr which allows you to poke him more which is incredibly important against zed. The armor also allows you to survive his poke. Zed will always end up with good farm because of his passive so just try not to let him get farm for free always use luxlightstrikekugel.png when he goes for farm.your luxlightbinding.png will lock him down and prevent him from using zedw.png and zedr.png so once you hit a luxlightbinding.png this is a good time to chunk or kill him with your full combo. make sure you react to hitting your luxlightbinding.png fast as he will most likely be spamming zedw.png or zedr.png to get away from your damage.
