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.
Hi guys! I'm just too lazy to edit my other lux guide soo I made new one. :) Hopefully you guys like it and I'm sorry about my bad english. ~ thx.
I'm playing EU nordic & east + nick is ''just1rape'' so add me if you want. ~
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration - Always for ap heros. Usually.
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration - Ok, here I go manaregen per level. Do not even need to explain.
Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power - Ap per level, Normal to ap carry.
Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction - Ok, if you need that extra CDR go ahead. Great way to shoot Finales Funklen more often. But CDR is never problem to me.
Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power - Yea, great way to gain some more extra ap per level.
Greater Quintessence of Magic Penetration - More magic pen + Sorcerer's Shoes = amazing. Just wow, but in my option Greater Quintessence of Scaling Ability Power is better.
Soo, I go 9/0/21 taking flash & ghost / flash & ignite. Nothing more.
Why Archaic Knowledge instead of Burning Embers ? Hmm, lets see. Because that extra 10 ap is not so important + the bonus of Archaic Knowledge magic pen to enemy is just amazing. Better way to harass your enemy with Lucent Singularity + other spells.
CORE ITEMS ::
the other builds core items ::
Why Morello's Evil Tome? Because, 20% CDR is kinda amazing to your spells, this allows to you spam spells constantly.
Ok, in this builds I don't rush Lich Bane because I don't find it so important in early game, get it on mid game. :)
You can replace your Void Staff some more defensive like Guardian Angel or Thornmail If vs is like Tryndamere / Gangplank or some else high attack dmg champion.
What about Rylai's Crystal Scepter? Nice extra hp, 80 ap + add slows to your all spells, hey why not?
And Zhonya's Hourglass is that's why because extra armor + 100 ap, hey, so nice!
Ok, so Lich Bane is for your passive, Illumination
WHERE IS Mejai's Soulstealer????????? If you are going fed, replace it with Morello's Evil Tome
Hmm, Getting enemy team who has Kennen Amumu Lux ? Buy Mercury's Treads instead of Sorcerer's Shoes
What about Boots of Mobility? Well, lux is not that slow, but if you are like ''ganker'' go and take, you always want to move aroud the map whole time.
Ninja Tabi Hmm, dodge, need that? If needed, go and take, not bad after all.
Ionian Boots of Lucidity Hmm, You dont want this, Sorcerer's Shoes more magic pen, BUT IF YOU NEED SO BADLY THAT CDR, go and buy. :P
Skill Sequence - Passive, Skills.
Lux's passive is Illumination
Excellent harrasment, like Light Binding > Basic attack to active your passive > Fast Lucent Singularity > Basic attack to active again your passive > Target is low enough and doesnt have flash? Finales funkeln GOGOGOGO SHOOT IT!! And if enemy had like 100 hp, go Flash and kill him with your Illumination :)
First spell is Light Binding (Q)
Oh, this spell is saved me so many times. Range is kinda long. Level one, take this, I think if you are mid vs like Miss Fortune who is pushing too much, try to land her with Light Binding + Basic attack.
Second spell is Prismatic Barrier (W)
Soo, its a shield, your support skill in teamfights, can save ur teammates + You ofc. This skill need little bit training how to land it, sheild goes twice so if your fed, omfga your spellshield sheilds so much. USE IT USE IT USE IT.
Third is Lucent Singularity (E)
Your basic harrassment skill in early game, level 1 > 9, usually. Lucent Singularity Is slow that you can pop out quicker, or land it like a slow for few seconds. I use Lucent Singlularity to harass + save people + combo with Light Binding.
Lux's ult is Finales funkeln (R)
Ah, my favourite ult in the game, long range, high magic damage, fun to gain headshots. Ok, if you have enough mana to your combo AND YOU KNOW THAT UR ENEMY IS LOW ENOUGH, land Light Binding first > basic attack or straight to Lucent Singularity + now that basic attack > And at the end Finales funkeln. This is how to oneshot people or you can kill them without basic attacks like me.
My favourite spells in game <3. Ok so Flash is just amazing chasing tool / escpaing. Must have!
Second recommended spell is Ignite, you dont have enough dmg to kill enemy? Go ahead, use Ignite.
Third is Ghost Lux, lux is never too slow but never too fast, for chasing low hp enemies or escaping.
Teleport better mapcontrol yeah, but I dont recommended it to lux, but if you want to move place to place or tele to wards and there to gank, sure.
Clarity manaregen is not high enough? Get clarity, same a support spell.
Clairvoyance Ok, if you are bad at aiming with finales funkeln go and take, nothing bad, + nice map awarness. ~
Exhaust Well, slow, everything + if team doesn't have, take it.
Cleanse ok, heavy cc? Flash + Cleanse + Lucent Singularity no problems anymore.
DO NOT TAKE!
Heal eh, you dont need? leave it to support.
Revive dont even think about it.
Rally w8 what??
Fortify Not a tank.
