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.
[/list]this build is what i use every match when i play lux who is my main character.lux is very good at controlling ganks and getting assists through the snare and the slow. i usually start with the snare for both 3v3 and 5v5 because of the early game ganks.
and the runes and masteries are self explanatory. the only problem with this build is the the survivability so if you ever get in a gank. dont try to backdoor without a tank like galeo or amumu because they can taunt for long durations allowing you to caste all of your spells to deal massive damage
to start is with the meki pendant to allow you to regen and just try to farm with illumination. that would allow you to hit then use your auto attack. what is a must when playing lux. so early game use your abilities spareingly because of how much mana you have early game. so then farm to about 1200 gold then go back. buy the tear of the goddess and boots. if you have any extra money buy a dorans ring because you shouldn't be going back for a while.
then farm to about either 1600 or 2300 gold. so at 1600 you could either get a needlessly large rod or with about 2300 gold you could get both a large rod and sorcerers boots. then keep farming and get a zonya ring that can help your survivability. so keep farming and getting either assists or kills.
by now your at about 20 or so minutes. now you should start buying the archangle staffs that will make you ap sky rocket.
so buy always tears first and then just go from tear to archangle staff and dont wago back until you have over 1900 gold. and buy as mana as you can. the more you have the more ap you have .
i sometimes have 4 or 5 staffs and that means the passives stack allowing you 12% of you max mana is converted to ap so thats about with 4000 max mana is about 333 ap. plus the base of each staff is 45 and you have 4 of them and that allows you to get another 180. and then the zhonya ring adds 125 ap. and the the unique passive give you 25% of you ap added on. so at the end of the game you should have over 1000 ap.
and this is when you allow the lux cannon to unleash of everyone. open ganks with it. and ganks with it. you do about 1300 magic damage. and with the cool downs its ready in about 26 or so seconds. ive goten a triple kill on two tanks and a ryze because of the q ablity and then having them run and getting them with the nuke by taking half of their total life.
and if you didn't make the assumption you sell the dorans ring late game to open you your items so late game u should have a a z ring, 4 staffs, and sorcerers boots. and if you have a lot of money late game and you know its the final gank. sell your boots and get another staff.
i hope you like the build :)
