Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png+21.png: Typical summs on lux. Good vs AP Burst. Can be used aggressive and defensive.

4.png+6.png: Often used summs on lux. Good vs control mages. Can be used aggressive and defensive,great roaming potential.

4.png+3.png:Rarely used summs on lux. Good vs ad (burst) and oneshot champs. Can be used aggressive but 99% used defensive,great for lane safety.

4.png+14.png:Very rarely used summs on lux. Good vs AD. Only used aggressive,great early game lane potential.


New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Very aggressive masteries for burst damage (especially late game). Everything based on damage.

Sorcery: Typical beggining of your AP masteries. Increases your % AP.

Feast (+why Feast>Fresh Blood): Very good for early fights and safety. Restores 20 health if you kill someone.
(Feast is a good for your early game. Lux lacks a bit in early game fights. Fresh blood only increases your passive damage and she has enough damage in this masteries so Feast is smarter.

Natural talent: Basically because you don't need spell vamp on lux,you take natural talent. Increases your AP per level + and extra amount at level 18.

Double edged sword: A very good opportunity to increase your damage as a range Mage. You get squishier,but the sustain in your runes make a great balance to this. Increases your total done damage by 3%,increases your total taken dmg by 1,5%.

Piercing thoughts: Basically because you don't need armor penetration on AP champs,you take Piercing thoughts. Increases your MP (in %).

Deathfire Touch(+WHY Deathfire Touch>Thunderlords in this case!!): Causes enemies to take extra damage through a burn (4 seconds long) (dmg in % to your AP).
(Deathfire Touch is in this case a better option because THIS version of Lux is based on her full AP BURST potential. Thunderlords is a very balanced spell on lux increasing her total damage of her combo. But DEATHFIRE TOUCH increases her total done AP damage in %. So in total deathfire touch increases her AP Damage (in late game) MORE THAN THUNDERLORDS!)

Savagery: Very good for farming. Increases the damage of single target spells by 1. (YOU CAN USE WANDERER TOO FOR ROAMING POTENTIAL! BUT THIS GUIDE IS STILL BASED ON DAMAGE SO YOU USE SAVAGERY.)

Assassin: Basically again an opportunity to increase your total damage. Increases your damage done if NO ALLIES ARE NEAR by 2%. (So it's great for laning.)

A levelling path to increase your full damage potential in late AND early.

You basically max your E luxlightstrikekugel.png first,then your Q luxlightbinding.png and at last your W luxprismaticwave.png and ALWAYS level your R luxmalicecannon.png if you can!!

In early you start with E luxlightstrikekugel.png for farming,but you can start Q luxlightbinding.png too if you invade or have a very aggressve lane enemy.
Then you level Q/E luxlightbinding.png/luxlightstrikekugel.png just because you don't need your shield that early.
Then you level E luxlightstrikekugel.png again because level 3 is the moment where early trades start. You don't need your shield luxprismaticwave.png early because you are an all range champ,so you increase your damage.
Then you level your W luxprismaticwave.png,becaue level 4 is the moment where ganks could start. To get away and stay alive,your shield luxprismaticwave.png could be pretty useful.

And then it's basically just levelling. E,Q,W and always R if you can.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Typical start on Lux. Dorans Ring gives you AP and mana restoration. Normals health pots basically because you don't use biscuits in your masteries(assassin for dmg!)
    Nearly no-one uses this BUT it can be really good in lane against range champs! You WILL build mejai's soulstealer on Lux for your maximum damage potential. So Dark Seal is a good start and gives you more health from pots!

Core Items

    you ALWAYS build Lost Chapter first! Damage or not,it's a must have item on Lux!
    After Lost chapter you buy Luden's echo and your shoes! Luden's Echo gives you burst damage in early and sorcerer's shoes very important magic penetration!
    After Luden's you finish your Morellonomicon and buy Mejai's souldstealer. Morellonomicon solves your mana problems and early Mejai's is good for stacking it for your late burst!
    At last you buy Void Staff,Zhonya's hourglass and Rabadons deathcap. The order you buy those 3 items depends on your situation. If the enemy team has many tanks or buys much MR you buy Void staff first for MP. If you are a bit behind or too squishy you buy Zhonya's first for Armor and safety! AFTER one of those 2 items you buy rabadons. If you by rabadons as last item,you have your burst damage way too late. Then at last you buy Void/Zhonya's depending on what's left.
    NEVER FORGET TO BUY THIS! You can buy it very early or when you finished your build. If the game is really fast then buy it if the next teamfight could end the game! If not, buy it after your build is finished or before/during your last item!

Situational Items

    A very good burst damage item that gives you MP and some over time damage. TO ACTUALLY MAXIMIZE YOUR DAMAGE,SWITCH THIS ITEM WITH ZHONYA'S HOURGLASS! But if you're smart,you shouldn't buy. You have over time damage through deathfire touch and enough MP through Void.
    A rarely bought item on Lux. You can actually buy it if the enemy team has at least 3 AP champs (or 2 if both are burst AP). But this item is really defensive and shouldn't be bought if you want real burst dmg.

Here a little section of items you should NOT/NEVER buy if you are Lux!

3100.pngLich Bane: Well damn. This is actually a perfect item for Lux because it is MADE for Lux' passive. BUT NO! DON'T BUY IT! You are a RANGE mage and all your abilities are based on range. You won't be able to do much if all of your dmg is based on your passive. It is just stupid.

3003.pngArchangel's Stuff: Oh hello there. It's a really good item on Lux actually because you use lots of mana and it's perfect for stacking my tear! HECK NO. This items damage is based on your mana you have. In total you buy AP not MANA. Even if it gives you an OP shield if it reached its final form. YOU DON'T NEED IT! You have Zhonya's and enough mana through Morellonomicon! It's just not necessary!

3116.pngRylai's Crystal Scepter: Wow. Just wow. It makes all your abilities slow and gives you more health! What a great item. That's what you think if you are stupid. This item got nerfed like 4 patches before and is only good on zyra. And get this freaking slow thing out of your mind. Lux' E slows already and you DON'T need the extra slow!
