Threats & Synergies
he is not a problem for you, if you are good positioned his E will never hit you, also his Q will be annoying when you will try to farm.
You have more range and power and your stunt is not easy to predict like her.
both have range, both have cc, the difference from your and him is you are more hot.
his wall is annoying, his egg is annoying, you have more range in e than have her in all skills.
same as anivia but without eggs or walls, but with stars.
matching against akali can go even very good or horrible, if she is a good akali you will had a very hard time, try to poke her as much as possible and be careful to always dodge her E, when she get in her W u can basically cover her with your E to damage her more, and maybe force her to retreat from that zone
dodge e, dodge r, if catch you in R and you are not able to kill her, stun her and go keep a little distance of her how time his R is active.
if you not dodge every Q after level 6 you are dead.
just annoying cc, dodge his posion area, keep range and the victory is your.
is this a le blanc rework?
he can literally jump over all your skills with his E, is very mobile and can do masive damage without any item. when reach level 6 he will try R + E combo, try to dodge it or buy zhonya early. is not a bad idea to play with stopwatch in a match aganist him.
another more annoying than singead, his q and q barrel have a ridiculous masive damage, his ultimate have no range request so he can kill you anywhere you try to run. if you get everytime low hp buy zhonya, cause after 6 you will not escape again. Except this facts, you have all power.
after rework he is not really a problem, but if you want, try to kill the useless turrets with E.
to active his ultimate he must be able to move, if you catch him in q he is 100% dead.
annoying, annoying, wtf this damage, no mana cost, will be terrible if she know to play. She will try qwee combo or qer combo, or maybe just er combo if you are really bad. Rush zhonya if you can't survive with just holy barrier and your skills.
a very low range champ? must be easy, but his skills hurt a lot. also is played extremly rare
all his skills is annoying, but not dangerous without a combo or his ult.
eearly not can do many things, have a lot of cc and range, but you can safe poke her with your E.
try to dodge his stun, in most cases will be obvious when will try to stun you.
dodge his enchanted skills.
Tentacle hentai!! but what if..you dodge the tantacles?
buy zhonya to resist at his R, just barrier will not save you if she use R on you when you are low.
dodging his E can be annoy some times, if you are into minions can be better to just walk forward, doing so he will catch a minion insead of catching you, but ofc if you can completly avoid it just do it.
a heimmer without rockets and stun.
no rats allowed here!!
light counter darkness, but if not, buy elementalist lux and rush dark from, darkness counter darkness. On a serious note, Veigar is pretty weak early game, and his ranges are not so great, you can freely trade him without big consequinces. Pre 6 you should be careful just about his jungler and his E. the skill which do most damage is his W, and R when your life is below a certain percent, otherwise still W do more damage. Also against champions as veigar and nasus you should be looking to end the game as soon as possible, cause once they get a certain number of stacks (on veigar basically 200) they will literally one shot you with a single skill. Ok, ok i lied, at 200 stacks he will get just 90% of your life with just a skill. (considering he had rabadon)
dodge all, attack him, dodge again, e, be you the man..woman who use first the laser.
dodge feathers, not stay behind feathers, no more to say.
same as mordek but he have a chance with his ult, just a chance, you will counter anyway him.
have more range than you, have damage, he is your dad. Now, Luke Skywalker go and kill him.
do a Q in his "face the wind" and you are dead.
lasers vs lasers
very annoying, long range ultimate, his q will follow you.
he will abuse he is an energy champ and will use his combo every 5 seconds. when use shadow try to stun him and kill him. also buy zhonya cause his R is the most horrible thing he can do with you when you are low hp.
best way to kill vladimir is to bait his W and then do a massive damage, so he will not be able to escape or reheal at time.
he will try W + Q + aa + ignite or R + Q + W + aa + ignite, be sure you active your barrier or zhonya, he will not be able to kill you, except if you like to hug walls random with no vision.
probably most annoy champion Rito would ever made, literally a Q can one shot you in mid-late game.
If you have any ask or feel want more details about something ask me in the comments.
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..
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.
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
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.
a simple combo is Light Binding + Lucent Singularity
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.
*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.
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
