You’re walking to the teamfight near dragon in order to help out your team. You notice a straggler with low health, so you start to chase them into the bush. Suddenly, something catches at your feet. You look down to see a ring of light around you. As Lux charges her laser, you curse. The laser goes off, you die, and she laughs. She laughs. She laughs. “Ha-ha-ha-ee!”
Lux is a long range mage who deals a good amount of damage from range. She has a decent amount of utility, but she’s primarily a nuker.
It may seem unfair to be nuked from a bush where you had no vision, but it’s fairly easily to stop Lux from reaching this power level. In this guide, I’ll be teaching you to send this girl back to school.
Passive – Iceborn
Lux’s offensive abilities will mark enemies. Her basic attacks and Final Spark consume the mark, dealing extra magic damage
Q – Ice Shard
Lux releases a sphere of light in a line that deals magic damage to the first two enemies hit and roots them.
W – Ring of Frost
Lux shields herself and throws out her wand in a line, shielding ally champions in its path. It then boomerangs back, adding another shield to all ally champions hit.
E – Glacial Path
Lux sends a ball of light to a target location, slowing enemies around the ball. Upon reactivating this ability or after a few seconds, the ball explodes and deals magic damage to all enemies nearby.
R – Frozen Tomb
After channeling for 1 second, Lux fires a laser which deals magic damage to all enemies hit.
Lux is pretty bad at farming early, because her Lucent Singularity can’t clear waves. Keep her pushed in.
Lux has very long ranges on her spells, but a good amount of her damage requires her to auto attack.
Lux players will often build Mejai’s, as they’ll be too far back to be killed in fights. Removing the Mejai’s stacks should be a priority.
Lux’s E and ult both take a second or so to charge. Save your dash for when she casts them, or be very careful to not be hit by her Q.
Lux is pretty good at roaming, because she can affect fights with her ultimate from far away. If she ever tries to push up, it may mean she’s going to roam. Keep her pushed in.
Lux has very low mobility, and no way to avoid ganks except for her Q. If she’s cast it, immediately engage.
Push in every single wave. If you fall low on health, go back to base and use your E to come back to lane quickly. Be sure to roam often. It’s also very difficult for Lux to avoid a fully charged Q, so try doing that if your jungler is in the area.
You have equal amounts of poke, but far more burst at early levels. Be sure to keep her away from minions at early levels, and do plenty of trading.
You can clear waves far easier than her, and she can’t easily dodge your spells. You also outrange her with your ult. If she roams, countergank her with your ult.
Exactly the same as Xerath.
Lux deals a large amount of magic damage, so shielding items like Iron Solari are strong against her. Otherwise, just build magic resistance.
