Thread says it all. Which tier 1, 2 and 3 masteries should I take in the offense tree on Lux? I have 6 points that I don't really know what to do with...

Options:

Brute Force - Helps with last hitting, goes well with her passive
Mental Force - She is an AP champ after all
Butcher - Helps with last hitting
Demolitionist - Helps with pushing towers faster, threat in early game in helpful in late game
Havoc - Totally useless in my opinion, or am I wrong?

Please, help me spend those 6 points :P

You have 6 points? Might as well pick up 2 in Butcher , 3 in Brute Force , and 1 in Demolitionist for better last hitting, and a filler (extra damage on towers is nice I guess).

If I helped you, click that +rep!

I do that on most of my mages, since you have a hard enough time last hitting without a lot of AD anyways. Plus it helps for when you get pushed to the turret.

I was seriously considering this. However I doubt Butcher is worth it, I never have trouble with last hitting. I think I will put those 2 points in Mental Force .

More opinions? ^^

The only problem with doing that is that you're not getting any real damage increase. You're getting about a 3 damage bonus on a full combo.

Easier last hitting is easier last hitting.

Brute Force should definitely be maxed. It's been shown to be the most efficient use of tier 1 offensive masteries and is especially useful on Lux for harassing, last-hitting and proccing Illumination.

Mental Force and Havoc are both pretty terrible, though I'm not sure which is worse. Currently I use Havoc , but I might have to do some mathcrafting at some point to find which is more optimal (or someone could do it for me).

Never liked Demolitionist . Pretty sure the extra damage is just physical, so the tower's armor mitigates most of it anyway. Besides, a tiny bit of extra damage on a tower doesn't seem too gamebreaking to me. I'd rather have a few extra points of damage on a fleeing champion.
Thanks to MissMaw for the sig!
