Why Flash/ Why Clairvoyance?

Flash: it's important for Lux to keep her distance in fights, so flash
Clairvoyance: first of all cause of the nerfs of ignite and exhaust. second the spell rules on lux cause of her ulti. You can steal blue/dragon/baron and secure kills with it. Third it helps because of the low amount of wards at the beginning

Why maxing e first as support

you will be a total aggressiv support which zones a lot. standard will be q+e combo, to deal massiv damage to a champion. So maxing e first is priority

Guide Top

Some basic infos

-U should always have 5-6 items, if you follow this guide correctly
-never forget to get the Ap potion if possible
-be agressiv as hell/ force trade offs

Guide Top

Basic support tactic

-warding: just ward at river, cause u wont have enough wards at the beginning; use your summoner spell inlane
-always be in bush to zone/start combo
-combo for max damgage is: "q+e+attack+e+attack"
-dont be afraid of trade ofs. the combo deals massiv damage, but it takes time, so u get also damage; no problem cause u have 5 potions (1 normal; 3 of the item; 1 cookie)

Stealing blue

Work together with your mid; get information if he sees his enemy running to blue. Use your clairbvoyance and steal blue with ulti.

Guide Top

Item declaration: start items

you should have 6 items at the beginning.
why crystalline flask: cause u will trade much with this tactic and lux also need much mana for this
why so less wards: you will only have 1 ward and 1 "1min ward" at the beginning, but with your clairvoyance spell u can save your inlanewar and therefor have enough.

Item Explanation additional support items

just standard; stronger manareg+golditem+warditem

Guide Top

Item explanation: support finnishing:

combine your gold+manaregitem (will still bring gold) and get additional manareg (to spam even more)

Guide Top

Explaining switching to ap

Manareg+ cooldownreduction is fitting for lux support, but also the perfect basis for lux ap. not add the ap to make it perfect

Guide Top

Explaining finnishing AP

get 2 of these 3 items, depending on the situation.

Guide Top

Basic facts

-With the masteries+athenes+blue potions you will exactly have 40% CDR
-Lux support needs mana+CDR, whats also a part of an AP-Lux, so its perfect combineable
-Fun way of supporting (cause its aggressiv)
-you will have the same amount of money as a nonsupporter in lategame (=viable ap)
-dont upgrade sightstone cause u have to sell it for an ap-item
