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.
Lux is one of the best AP mage/support champions in the game. She can put out a lot of burst damage and shield a lot of damage.
The thing that makes her so powerful is her passive, use it to its full potential and you can kill any champion that comes your way. The trick with her passive is to play very aggressive so you can get off a lot of shots with your passive.
This guide is how I prefer to play Lux, plain damage output and support.
Either way you will have a great game with her and most possibly win!
This is my first guide, so dont expect to get wins from the get-go!
For Lux I go flat AP. This makes early harassment very powerful and also makes CS easy. It also works great for Supp.
Then some AP per lvl glyphs. Just to scale nicely throughout the whole game.
MagicPen glyphs to give that extra damage, and most possibly the kill!
Cooldown reduction, because its more fun to lazer people to death! :D
For Lux i go a full 30 points in offensive tree.
This give max damage output.
The AD points I take, because she has a lethal auto attack combined with her passive (remember the goal is to get off as many passive shots as you can!)
The armor penetration is just for that extra bit of damage that could give you the kill and not let them escape with 10hp! (admit it, that sounds good??? :D)
I start off with a dorans ring. A powerful little item.
Then either i get boots or another dorans ring, depends on the situation on your lane. If your having a great income take another dorans ring, the extra hp and mana regen is always welcome!
Depending how the game goes, either get Amplifying tome or Sorceresses shoes.
This is where you look at the game and decide what you need most. More magic pen or mana + damage. Once you have identified what you need, either get Void staff or rush Archangels Staff.
If your game is not going that well, get lichbane instead, it help a lot with damage output.
Then Identify again what is needed, more survivability (because you are targeted) or damage (because more damage is always good!) then get Rylai's Crystal Scepter or Rabadon Deathcap
Pros / Cons:
Great support Easily killed
Great harassment Mana problems early game
Good CC (trap or movement slow) Targeted
Fun to play
E spell can be used as ward
Lazer time!! :D
Make sure to use her passive!!!!!!!
Use E as a ward when you need vision in a bush!
Have fun killing champions with your long range lazer! :D
Dont be scared to 1v1 with someone, Lux is very powerful and easily underestimated!
Use your CC to save allies or escape enemies!
This is my first guide, hope it works for some of you out there!
