- Tons of DPS throughout the game.
- Can completely shut down squishy carries.
- Lots of AoE and an aoe shield for team fights.
- A strong solo champ.
- Squishy! If someone catches you there is a good chance you will die, the good news is Lux has a lot of escape mechanisms.
- Early DPS means weak early shielding.
Late game the passive's usefulness wears out because it puts you in range of a beating. It still does a fair amount of damage but you run the risk of feeding/losing stacks. Building a lichbane severely limits the amount of AP you can get and it cuts down the amount of AP you could be getting early on. It is a huge investment that can get you killed. If you get a few early kills and maintain your stacks on mejai's this build will rival the amount of damage you do with a lichbane, and it will do it from the safety of 1000 game distance.
Ashe- Because an in mid and a solo top lux can have nasty results. If you coordinate ults you can catch low people at top tower with an ashe ult and follow with Lux's. You can also walk down the river a ways and ult the mid, initiating a fight and adding a bit more dps in ashe's favor. The synergy between them is strong.
Tanky DPS- For fairly obvious reasons, they stand between you can the people who want to kill you. You in turn shield them and allow them to take hard tank amounts of damage. You also bind and burst, which tanky dps can generally capitalize on.
Garen- Your brother is one of the most difficult people to deal with. If he lands his silence you are generally dead without some assistance. His silence spin to win ult combo will be enough early game for him to kill to. Be careful around him in solo lanes.
Anyone who can close a lot of distance- They are the few people who can catch you if you make a mistake. XZ, Jax, Nocturne and people of the like will be your biggest issue, they are also very difficult to kill. It is best to leave these ones to your team unless they are carrying very hard, then you have to use your combo and hope your team can do enough damage to finish them off.
