She grew up as the family's only daughter, and she immediately took to the advanced education and lavish parties required of families as high profile as the Crownguards. As Lux matured, it became clear that she was extraordinarily gifted. She could play tricks that made people believe they had seen things that did not actually exist. She could also hide in plain sight. Somehow, she was able to reverse engineer arcane magical spells after seeing them cast only once. She was hailed as a prodigy, drawing the affections of the Demacian government, military, and citizens alike. As one of the youngest women to be tested by the College of Magic, she was discovered to possess a unique command over the powers of light. The young Lux viewed this as a great gift, something for her to embrace and use in the name of good. Realizing her unique skills, the Demacian military recruited and trained her in covert operations. She quickly became renowned for her daring achievements; the most dangerous of which found her deep in the chambers of the Noxian High Command. She extracted valuable inside information about the Noxus-Ionian conflict, earning her great favor with Demacians and Ionians alike. However, reconnaissance and surveillance was not for her. A light of her people, Lux's true calling was the League of Legends, where she could follow in her brother's footsteps and unleash her gifts as an inspiration for all of Demacia.

Introduction

This short guide is THE MOST effective way to build Lux for dominion. Off course, not everyone will agree.

This guide is still a work in progress, and is based on my Dominion Beta Experience so far.
Back to Top

Items

The items have been set up to provide a good balance between Ability Power, Magic Penetration and enough Cool-down to use your "Facemelting Ulti Laz0r" effectively.

The basic build is:
Sorcerer's Shoes > Rabbadon's Cap > Void Staff > Morello's Evil Tome

Everything after that should be situational selections. I usually go for Rylai's and an Abbysal Scepter.

Runes

Focuses on, Magic Penetration, Cool-down Reduction and Mana Regen.

Masteries

Nothing Special Here:
9-0-21 is the most comment mastery build for lux.

Skill Sequence

For dominion I advice to max out your light binding first, you need this to interrupt, as escape and support. So maxing this out together with other Cool-down reduction makes this almost spammable.

Of course maxing your ulti takes priority over all.

Using this build, together with the right skill combo (don't forget the effectiveness of your passive versus tough champions) lets me insta-kill most of the non-tank champions.

Summoner Spells

Ghost and Flash for obvious reasons, both able to use for attack as well as defensive purposes.

Summary

I know, it really short. But so is dominion.

Have fun!
