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 all you eager beavers! Get ready for a build that gives you an amazing Lux build and a great way to play. So lets not waste time!
For Lux you want as much penetration and as much Ability Power as possible to do so you get Runes with these two specific attributes.
Lux is a magic girl so therefore you want as much magic as possible with a little Attack damage for good measure! This is why i picked these masteries. They will also help with all your cooldowns and other Magic needs.
The items i chose are there for the maximum Lux capabilities! Ok so for lux you want Ability power so that is why i chose these, but if you didnt know when lux uses a spell and it hits someone the next basic attack by Lux will do extra damage! So that plus Lich Bane causes quite the bang for your buck. The Rabaddons Deathcap is for boosting your AP because it gives +30% AP AND 140 AP! So that is a MUST have for Lux! Then Zhonya's is for Ability power and Armor and its Active is useful too! Then the Void staff is for extra penetration. Rylai's Crystal Scepter is for more health and extra slowing abiities. Then you have the Sorcerers Shoes for Speed and for extra Magic penetration.
I put this spell sequence because you want to be able to snare (Q) at the beginning of a game if you want to survive, the shield (W) isn't all that important that is why it is last and the slowing spell (E) is for doing damage to a mass amount of champions and minions. If you cast the slowing spell (E) and press it again (E) it will detonate when you press E the second time versus just sitting and waiting for it to blow up on its own.
Lux is a sorceress, but she also has a fighting advantage that ties in with the spells. So if you didnt know when lux uses a spell and it hits someone the next basic attack by Lux will do extra damage! That is one advantage she has. But with Lux she is a more of a longranged fighter you want to throw spells and great distance between people. Distance is Lux's advantage if you get the positioning right you will kill anyone! I suggest throwing out this combo: first slow them with E then basic attack them then Snare them and again basic attack repeat until they have low enough health and then Ultimate them with R. Also a tip for the W spell is to throw it into the direction you are running so it refreshes the shield faster.
Pros / Cons
Pros of Lux! Lux is a great and fun champion to play with. If played right she can be unstoppable.
Cons of Lux :( Lux is very squishy, which means she dies fast. So try to keep your distance.
So now that i have shared my secrets with you about my rainbow throwing girl. Its time for you to get out there and show off your rainbow power! Good luck and may the Lux be with you!
