Mastery Tree Is Outdated
WARNING: These masteries are still using the old tree and have not been updated to the new tree by the guide author. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to my guide for Lux. I picked up this AMAZING mage because she has the potential to slaughter the entire enemy team at long range. However, she is difficult to master and would not recommend her to a newer player.
Greater Mark of Magic Resist
Greater Seal of Health
Greater Glyph of Ability Power
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power
Here are some situational items for you to ponder.
Build this item if you are doing VERY well early game, so you can snowball and omnomnom the other team. This item is only viable for Lux because if she is fed and a decent shot, it's extremely difficult to kill her. replace Morello's Evil Tome
I personally wouldn't recommend this item, but if you feel you need the extra mana, this would be the item. replace Athene's Unholy Grail
Skill SequenceLux's aresenal.
Illumination is Lux's passive, it puts an exploding charge on each enemy hit by one of Lux's spells which she can detonate to do bonus magic damage by basic attacking.
Light Binding is a long-range skill shot that can snare not one, but TWO enemies! However, the second enemy will only take half damage and be snared for half as long.
Prismatic Barrier is a shield that flies in a straight line(skill shot) and places a shield on Lux (which is instant) and on any ally champion it touches. it also returns to Lux once it has reached maximum range and will reapply the shield to any ally champion it touches, finally giving Lux the shield again once it reaches her.
Lucent Singularity is an area of effect that sends a ball out that clears fog of war around it, and slows any enemy within its area of effect. Lux can also recast this ability to detonate the ball dealing quite a large amount of damage to any enemy within its area of effect and applying Illumination.
finales funkeln finales funkeln is the big one. It is a gigantic rainbow laser beam. it has one of the longest non-global ranges of any ability in the game and will ont only apply Illumination but will detonate a charge if it is already present. This ability will get very annoying for your opponents if you can judge hp well.
Now, onto the sequence. I take my "E" first because it has quite a large bit of damage already, along with a 75% AP scale. This is you main ability. Max it by level 9. Next depends on how well my lane is going. If you're doing well, take your "Q", it makes landing those Lucent Singularitys much easier. If you're not doing so hot, go ahead and take the shield. it can save from that nasty Ignite.
Ignite is a great spell. Generally it is standard for an AP carry, but I personally don't like to give it a slot, because if the enemy is a low enough HP to die from an ignite, they can take a finales funkeln to the face.
Teleport can help with ganks or kill securing. No other reason to take this spell.
Any other summoner spell isn't really worth it. Don't take them.
I hope you all liked my guide. I'll attempt to get some match history files and some videos of me playing lux for you. Good Luck and Have Fun.
