Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hey, I'm writing this guide basically just to point out how strong a support lux lane can be. I've played lux a lot lately and I feel like she could be a very very strong aggressive support. I don't recommend this choice for ranked, as A. This is by no means a very well tested topic for me, and B. Strong lanes (Graves) will be very hard to beat. So yeah, please keep an open mind and enjoy this short guide on aggressive support lux.
How to Play :3
The key to having a successful support lux is being VERY aggressive. Use your passive, get some damage on the enemy whenever they fall out of position, control the brush (Make them pay for trying to ward it). But you also need to keep your carry safe (Don't miss your bind on the initiator), keep buying wards and health/mana pots, and try not to take kills (Only secure kills that are questionable (Laser the 200HP AD carry that flashed over the wall)). Most importantly, try not to die! Lux turns into a great team fighter with some levels. Don't lose that exp. time. If you do your job right, your carry will be fed before long, or the enemies will be vastly under-farmed.
IMPORTANT: Tell your carry to play aggressively! Your bind, slow, and damage can make trade-offs always result in a loss for the enemy team. ZONE THE ENEMIES BUT DO NOT PUSH THE LANE. I've played a many games where we've had anywhere from two to five levels on the enemy lane.
Logic for the Build
Not everything is completely thought out here. Start with fairie charm to build towards philo. stone and to keep your mana regen up. Try to get your philo stone as soon as possible. If you can afford your philo stone (Unless your carry needs you in lane, have them push out and b for your stone). Boots are nice :) , then doran's for the cheap Mp5, AP, and health (You're squishy in a 2v2 lane). After doran's pick up a majai's. "Why a majai's!?"; because you're a support early game that will turn into a decent carry late game. If you're not making any dumb decisions (We all do), then you'll build into 20 stacks in time. Combined with the hat, this will start to make you very, very strong. I didn't include anything after the hat because the next choices are up to the player. Pick up any AP items really, read other Lux guides if you don't know what's good for a carry Lux. (Get zhonya's if there are too many AD's, get a void staff if they build MR, etc. etc.).
So yeah, thanks for reading, leave a comment or whatever. Try it before you troll, it does work well (Normally I'll go about 10-4-20, or 7-8-25 if we lose bot lane). Also please keep in mind this isn't a finished idea. I would just like to see people try it and see what they think.
