Skilling Q first - still maxing E after that - has its benefits, if your team wants to invade and in certain melee matchups.
Whenever a Katarina, Zed or Fizz wants to last-hit, you can punish very hard, getting the Q damage, one passive proc and at least one additional, often more, auto attack in.

Hi,

Yes, I love taking q when you're invading! I have that info in the notes section on my guide where you see what skills to level up :)

Although into melee matchups, I personally prefer E (unless I invaded) because it gives more overall utility. If they're melee going for a minion, instead of trying to Q them, you can throw your E down and not pop it immediately to slow them, then pop it when they're on the edge of it (then keep autoing since E slows for 1s after, I usually find myself getting more autos off this way then taking q). Plus E helps more with wave management level 1 then q does. However, if you find that Q works better for you (or if you invaded and took q), feel free to still do so!! There's really not a huge difference between the two at level 1.

Hi! I was wondering, how come people dont get ultimate hunter on lux? And there are not that many guides that suggest taking ignite as lux, but why?

Hey!

Ultimate hunter isn't bad on Lux, but the issue with it is that it requires you to get a takedown on all 5 champions for the full stacks, meaning it won't really do much until mid-late game unless your games are just blood baths. Plus, her ultimate is a relatively low cooldown, so the percentages don't make too much of a difference. It's better on someone like Karthus or Shen who have really high CDR's on their ultimates, since 25% is a LOT or long cooldown ultimates! At 40%CDR level 16 with ultimate hunter, your ultimate cooldown is 18 seconds, where it's just 22 seconds if you take cosmic insight instead. The 4 seconds doesn't make much of a difference, where cosmic insight gives 5% from level 1 on all of your spells, your flash/barrier/whatever summoner spells you have is up a little bit faster, and so forth. If you want CDR, cosmic insight is a great alternative!! Ultimate hunter isn't a bad rune overall though and if you are able to get the stacks early on (lower elos fight a lot or you're looking to invade/fight with team a lot) then ir is INSANELY strong!! Or, if you preference it, feel free to do so as well! Or it's good on ARAM when you can get all 5 stacks in a very short amount of time :P

As for ignite, the issue is Lux usually shouldn't be in range to do so in a lot of cases since you're wanting to cast your spells from far away! Plus, Lux is very immobile, so usually a more defensive spell like barrier/cleanse/heal is what she leans to, or teleport to either assist around the map since she is so immobile.

Hope this helps and lmk if you have any other questions, id be happy to answer them :)

What is the build and runes for adc on-hit lux? It seems cool and I want to try it but idk what to take.

LuxTheGreyWarden (50) | May 13, 2020 7:26pm
Hi! I don't really play on-hit Lux but I would assume you could either follow a regular ADC build with crit, or you could do a similar build to Kalista/Varus on hit (blade of the ruined king, wits end, etc). Id probably also take either lethal tempo or hail of blades! Sorry I don't know too much about it since I play her AP but I hope this helps :)

What do you think about lux support?

[-]
LuxTheGreyWarden (50) | May 7, 2020 4:24pm
Hi,

I'm biased of course because of Lux, but I do think she's a great pick! I like her because she is really flexible- she can either shield and heal her allies, push out a lot of AOE damage, or do a mix of both! It's really fun to go into a game and be able to decide, "Were doing good and I'm ahead, let me buy more AP items", or "let me get another shielding item to support my fed ADC better". Basically all other supports are either shielding/healing champions (Janna/nami/etc), engagers (blitz, naut, thresh, etc), or just straight up damage dealers (brand, zyra, etc). Plus, her kit is very unique, as she has utility in her build where others don't (her E and R give vision, for example).

With that being said, unfortunately, the higher up the ladder you go (diamond/master/gm/chally), the worse Lux gets. Her kit is very easy to counter, she has no mobility and is very squishy, and she gets countered hard by a lot of the meta supports right now.

I have a support guide here with pros and cons of Lux support and other information if you wanted to read that!

Hope this answers your question and let me know if you have any other questions!!

I'll try to keep my review as brief as I can, since Katasandra already covered a lot of the more specific details.

Overall, there's obviously a ton of useful info in your guide, which is one of the reasons it's stood the test of time. I think the best improvements you could make to this guide are visual & content changes to help your most useful information shine through. Still great as-is though, well done.

Hope you found this review useful. Good luck with your updates!

Hey Psi,

I really appreciate this full review a lot. My guide has been around quite a bit and I think it's so easy to get stuck on how the guide is (and how much time you put into it) that you don't want to make any major changes, but you are definitely right, a lot of those things did need to change. I always thought putting a bunch of information was more beneficial since the person would be able to read my guide and know what stuff to take, but also what stuff not to take and WHY, but it was very cluttered and so I went ahead and did a lot of drastic changes, so I hope they look a lot better!! Feels really good to see the end result and I again, appreciate yours and Kat's reviews a lot since it helped me realize that these changes kinda needed to happen!

I'm pretty sure that this wasn't intended but, heal's color in summoner spells is white. Shouldn't it be light green or green?

Edit: Ryze's name is grey instead of everyone else sky blue so you might want to fix that too.

Hey there,

Here's a review you didn't ask for, but was given since your guide got featured ;)

Spoiler: Click to view

Its a solid guide that covers all the necessary information on Lux one could need. Looking at the changelog & old guide template, it's not the newest guide on the site. Despite this, it still looks pretty good.

Have a nice day & good luck updating your guide!

Hi Katasandra,

I really do appreciate this "review" a lot, since my guide has been out for a bit and it's a HUGE chunk of information that's hard to look over every patch. I definitely miss a lot of stuff I need to edit or change, especially when it comes to swapping out or changing the descriptions for runes or updating the matchup section when champions do get changed/reworked! I've thoroughly read through your review and changed most of the things you said, as they were definitely needed! :)

There were a couple things I didn't change because I personally thought they were fine, but I do appreciate a different perspective on it. Again, I do appreciate not only the review, but the review being neat and coded, which I know takes a lot more time than just typing!
