Introduction

Lux is definitely fun to play, and one of my favorite champions. Not much else to say. She takes some time to get used to, but you'll probably end up liking her.

Pros / Cons

Pros:


Snare.
Slow.
Burst.
Bubble.
LA***SEEEERRRRR.

Cons:


Weak laning, but can get early kills with Snare combos depending on match-ups.
Long CDs (except for Ulti)
NEEDS blue.
One of the squishiest champs.

Runes/Masteries

Self-explanatory, look somewhere else for detailed explanations. This guide assumes that you know more about the game than just enough to distinguish between right- and left-clicking.

Items

Doran's first helps with mana regen and picking up first blood, hopefully. Philo for lane presence and GP5 (10, but w/e). Then boots cause I hate feeling slow and fat. Very early Rabadon's is great for the boost in burst damage if you can set up ganks. The rest is standard. Don't sell Doran's until you're level 13+. If you manage to get enough gold and are considering more AP, you can sell the Philo for Abyssal, or upgrade it. *I tend not to get Mejai's since I don't trust teammates (solo queue). This is up to you. If you want to risk raging at incompetent teammates, pick up Mejai's before Rabadon's.

Skill Sequence

Not really a big deal, all of her actives and even her passive are useful.
Passive: Every active that hits an enemy puts a 3s bubble around said enemy that deals damage if popped with an auto-attack. Try to make use of this AMAP. It's what makes Lux good.

Q: Snare, deals good damage.
W: Skill-shot bubble, boomerang path. Not overly strong, but can hit twice in one use.
E: Skill-shot bomb, 5s to hit E again to explode or it just goes off by itself (CD doesn't start going 'til it explodes). Slows until popped.
R: LASER, great range, good damage, not overly hard to hit (or dodge...). Pops any passive bubbles and puts up a new one. Handy-dandy short CD.

Order:
I tend to go with E first for harass, but depending on lanes, Q is viable. Just keep E a level above Q. I usually get W later on, but it depends on the situation. R whenever possible, of course.

Summoner Spells

Clarity/Cleanse/CV/Fortify/Heal/Rally/Revive/Promote are either bad choices or pretty meh.
Ghost - You have a snare and a slow, no need.
Exhaust - ^
Ignite - ^
Smite - Lux can't jungle.
And so, that leaves:
Flash - multi-purpose-super-useful-skill-that-almost-every-gets
Tele - Helps you get back to lane faster, join in ganks, get in laser range.

Summary

Lux is fun. On a side note, get a custom skin. I hate her default. >_<
Short guide, I know. Tell me it lacks detail, but don't tell me it lacks info. Doesn't work for you? Use Elementz's instead. Not too much different.
