Introduction

Hey guys, im not very good at introduction or guide, i seen on this site a lot of guides, and i thinked "i play lux very well(or i used to but i feel like i need to update this guide so yeah), why to not show to other people how i play her". Sure, now im to lazy to add a lot of details and my english suck, so im sorry this guide is very short and have a horrible design.
If you have any ask or feel want more details about something ask me in the comments.

Changelog

I decided to do a changelog on patch and how it affect or can affect Lux.
9.3 yey i updated this guide finally, amm, happened a lot to start with.
8.23 there are some changes on runes, most mentionable being Shield Bash and Dark Harvest which can give some utility for lux, Shield Bash is a rune focusing on players having/recieving a shield, easy to proc as lux, but notice if you want to proc it on an ally, the ally need to had the rune not you, obvisouly but said to avoid confusion. Dark Harvest got a "rework" i think is best word, now you get stacks by damaging enemies below 50%, also dark harvest can be proc only on enemies below 50% hp, the good part of it is now any form of damage can proc it, not only auto attacks, mading it a more versatile rune..used one every champion..

Skills

Illumination is Lux's passive, after you hit an enemy with an skills next your basic will deal some extra magic damage based on your level and ap ratio.

Light Binding will stun first 2 enemy troops mainly and deal some sick damage, if someone gank you, just q, and run or do a double kill xd.

Prismatic Barrier is a pretty ****ty shield with a delay animeation to activation, so not to good to use on yourself if someone is chase you, still good but mainly to protected your team or avoid some damage.

Lucent Singularity is most useful skill you can have, this skill do slow, damage, and vision, cook..


Final Spark is a long range ultimate with massive damage, and relative low cooldown. with cdr can be less than 30 seconds.
Back to Top

Items

Luden's Echo In the time i not updated this guide.. a long long time, Luden Echo get some changes, and now i think is the best item to start with, even if now have 10 less ap, having last chapter as material and 600 mana is giving you a lot of mana sustain early game, the passive also do some sick damage once you got some ap.

Morellonomicon Also got some changes and now gives magic penetration,and the interesting part Grievous Wounds which is a good item against champions with a lot of sustain, basically like a comparation is Mortal Reminder for ap champs.
After finishing luden, you should start Oblivion Orb even if you don't plan to do morello right now, the penetration from it is really good, and some extra health can't be bad.

Mejai's Soulstealer You can buy it only if you are sure you will not die, if play ranked i not recommand you to buy it if your jg is not premade with you or is not very present on your zone casue you are vulnerable to enemy, and your mejai probably will bait a lot of enemy on you.

Lich Bane Is not really a bad choice, your aa will get more magic damage with this passive and Illumination. The passive of Lich is very simmilar with your passive somehow.

Liandry's Torment if you prefer less MP and some extra health is a good choice, but not same effective like Void Staff, anyway good against champs with a lot of hp.


Rabadon's Deathcap just high amount of ap, you will want it like third item usually
Void Staff best item versus an enemy with magic resist

Rod of Ages Is a good choice if you want to be little tanky without lose anything, but must be buyed early to get abuse it. Rod of Ages will get you a total of 100 AP, 500 healthand 400 mana at 10 stacks, and you will get a stack per minute. It's terrible

Zhonya's Hourglass Good versus assasins, karthus ult, for some cheese plays and some other situations, or just to be more safe.


Banshee's Veil good if you want to resist more, but to be seriously, none of enemy will be able to touch you.

Combo

i think is not really need to told about combos, a not really combo is everytime hit an enemy with an skills use and an aa, the most massive combo is: Light Binding + aa + Lucent Singularity + aa + Final Spark + aa , if this not kill an enemy, nothing will kill him.

a simple combo is Light Binding + Lucent Singularity

Summoner Spells

Barrier

used good can save you from any situation.
u go dive and turret can kill you? barrier
Talon jump in you and ignite? barrier.
Zed full combo you? barrier.
Enemy jungler catch you? barrier.
you want to write something in chat but forget to press enter? barrier + flash.
This have relative a low cd of 180, any other deffensive and offensive spell have 210-300 cd.

Exhaust

not really bad, but i prefer barrier.

Ghost

and, where you try to run? you are a mage not an assasin.

Heal

a good spell for someone everytime in middle of battle, but you are always back behind your team or your turret and not go like an idiot in middle of enemy.

Ignite

good to kill stea..secure early game, but not to good in late (maybe theres some exceptions).

Smite

are u serious?!

Teleport

good for roam and go faster on your lane, but you will not go faster on your lane ever cause you control perfect your lane, so tp will help you only to roam and suicide trying to steal baron teleporting in middle of enemy and regret you not picked smite.

Runes

*many things from that part of guide can be not updated, check the runes in the start of guide for a direct setup of viable way to play lux. My apologies for being lazy*


So if you want to do full damage you must choose Sorcery or Domination, and about these 2 i will talk most. I still test runes, so maybe you have other opinions ^.^

Sorcery as primary rune


if you want to go on Sorcery, on main line, the keystone must be Arcane Comet, the rest should be manaflow and whatever you prefer and what you think suit better for your playtyle.
Second in most cases best choice is The Ultimate Hat (f got removed, i leave this part of guide just because im lazy to edit, basically there is a new rune which do the same but in domination tree, and is named kinda ironic Ultimate Hunter), with this rune stacked at maximum and 40 CDR you will have less than 30 second on ult, at max level.
1 point on R

max point
idk maybe you want more mana, or magic shield but i think that rune must be in Lux kit.
3rd line - there is more freestyle, Absolute Focus and Transcendence are both useful, anyway Absolute Focus have a big less, and that is you must have more than 70% of your hp to can use it.
and last line of sorcery, to said fast, Scorch is for early game and Gathering Storm for late, if you think the game will hit the late then pick the storm. Waterwalking seems be a rune for junglers so i will just exclude it, is to situational for a mid laner, except if it is for an objective or long roams anticipation.

Domination as secondary rune


as second rune, best choices for domination are Cheap Shot cause you have a lot of CC so your Q or E will trigger it, and Eyeball Collection or Ravenous Hunter. ( Ghost Poro is too nice, but offer just vision, nothing more)
Ultimate Hunter is good too for more cdr on ult

Domination as primary rune


Well i alerdy said something about it, so Electrocute is the keystone cause is very similar with Thunderlord's Decree
Also Dark Harvest can work good if you can stack it early game.

Sorcery as secondary rune


well there is simple The Ultimate Hat and what you think will need in the match.

Also Inspiration is funny to play, but all runes from that path depends of your style.
Inspiration was recently nerfed for few patched in a lot so i recommand that only for Stopwatch #leagueofstopwatch

if you have a question about some runes you think work good but i not mention them just ask me in comms and i will try to answer
