Tips

Playing As Lux Lux
  • Lux has great Lucent Singularity.png zone control abilities. Try to set up Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity to prevent an enemy's advance or escape.
  • If you have trouble landing Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier, remember that it returns to you after it reaches max range. Try positioning yourself to hit your allies with its return trip.
  • Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity is a great scouting tool. Try throwing it into brush before walking into it to check for ambushes.
Playing Against Lux Lux
  • Lux has powerful Lucent Singularity.png zone control abilities. Try to spread out and attack from different directions so she cannot Lucent Singularity.png lock down a specific area.
  • When retreating with low health, be prepared to dodge Lux's Final Spark.png Final Spark, a red targeting beam fires prior to the main beam, so try to move to the side if possible.

Tricks

Ability Usage
  • Lux Lux's strength as a mage derives from her respectable amount of utility from Light Binding.png Light Binding, Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier, and Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity, along with her high scaling ratios and damage potential particularly from Illumination.png Illumination procs and well-known Final Spark.png Final Spark. However, she lacks mobility and is vulnerable at close range.
  • The long range of Lux Lux's abilities allow her to zone and generally counter short-ranged champions.
  • If you hit an enemy with Light Binding.png Light Binding, throw a Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity but do not detonate it until you land an autoattack. This will allow you to proc Illumination.png Illumination twice for extra damage.
  • Lux Lux can be deceptively durable using Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier; use it in teamfights to grant yourself and your entire team a strong absorption shield.
  • On cast, Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier will instantly cast the shield on you, and when the rod returns it resets the shield on yourself. When running, cast Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier in the direction you are running. This way, you will be shielded twice, faster.
  • Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity provides sight. Use it to check bushes or gank spots before approaching to prevent an unnecessary death.
  • A useful trick is to cast Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity, then auto attack; while your auto attack is in the air, detonate the spell so you can get the Illumination.png Illumination passive to detonate right after. If you detonate right after casting however, you may not have the vision to execute the attack.
  • The combination of the long range slow of Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity and Final Spark.png Final Spark can decimate fleeing enemies.
  • Using Final Spark.png Final Spark to hit enemies who are attempting to Dragon Dragon or Baron Nashor Baron Nashor may allow you to scare them or even kill steal the Dragon or the Baron buff. Similarly, it can be used to finish off the monster when your team is attempting the kill.
  • If Lux Lux is picked on Twisted Treeline, her ability Final Spark.png Final Spark from the middle brush can target enemies at the tower. This gives Lux Lux and her team an advantage in lane control.
  • It is advised for Lux Lux not to get into a close-up fight, as her low movement speed, long cooldowns, and relative fragility will work against her. Stay behind your teammates and spam spells into fights from afar to stay out of harm's way.
  • Lux Lux benefits from cooldown reduction more so than some casters, as her spells are on a longer cooldown than average. Try obtaining the Crest of Insight.png Crest of Insight buff to use Final Spark.png Final Spark as an effective poke ability.
  • Final Spark.png Final Spark is great for clearing large amounts of creeps in a lane, and harassment in late-game due to its noticeably short cooldown.
    • Feel free to use Final Spark.png Final Spark just to shave off some of your opponents' health, due to its low cooldown and high damage output.
    • At max cooldown reduction Lux Lux can perform it every 30 seconds, which is low enough that she can use it to soften up enemies in a teamfight and then finish off any escaping opponent.
    • During the laning phase and depending on the situation, you can use Final Spark.png Final Spark before recalling to stop a push or scare off the enemy as the cooldown, even at early ranks, is not very high.
    • However, one of Lux Lux's most effective combos is a Light Binding.png Light Binding followed immediately by Final Spark.png Final Spark to proc the passive and deal unavoidable damage to those caught. This can effectively turn a fight around if you manage to catch priority targets with this.
  • The damage of Final Spark.png Final Spark extends slightly past the targeting icon, but enemies will likely dodge it if they are at the very edge.
  • The most common damaging combo that Lux Lux can use is Light Binding.png Q > Lucent Singularity.png E without detonating > Final Spark.png R > Illumination.png AA > Lucent Singularity.png E detonation > Illumination.png AA
  • Lux Lux can easily punish enemies who overextend or chase her down by kiting with Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity, especially in the jungle, and will make it easy for you to use a Light Binding.png Light Binding and Final Spark.png Final Spark combo right after for damage which will either scare them off, finish them, or weaken them enough for your teammates to finish the job.
  • It is strongly suggested to use smart cast as Lux Lux requires fast initiation of spells to pull of her whole combo.
  • Do not neglect her passive Illumination.png Illumination at any level. Lux Lux does not put out the most reliable damage, but has a high per level scaling on her passive. In comparison, if you were to fire off a Final Spark.png Final Spark at level 11 with a Rabadon&#039;s Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap, the bonus damage on your ultimate and the bonus damage from your passive would be roughly the same. Spacing your abilities apart and weaving in auto-attacks between each of your damaging abilities will drastically increase your damage at all levels.
  • While not played as often, Lux Lux can be played and built to that of a support, requiring a more passive approach to curb her mana costs and lack of hard and reliable disables.
  • When ulting escaping enemies, minimize angle of enemy vector and ult path. Sidestepping in a lane helps.
Mastery Usage
Item Usage
Countering
  • All of Lux Lux's spells are skillshots; move erratically to avoid her spells.
    • Avoiding Lux Lux's Light Binding.png Light Binding is critical for your survival as it easier for her to land her full Light Binding.png Q > Lucent Singularity.png E > Final Spark.png R combo on you.
    • Remember that unlike Dark Binding.png Dark Binding, Light Binding.png Light Binding will snare an additional enemy behind the first target.
    • Starting with Boots of Speed item.png Boots of Speed will can help you dodge skill shots by moving faster away or out of them.
  • When fleeing with low health, do not move in a straight line, in order to avoid her Final Spark.png Final Spark.
    • Final Spark.png Final Spark has a red indicator that indicates where the ability is cast, even in fog of war. Use this to your advantage.
    • Even though Final Spark.png Final Spark has a long but limited range, the spell animation is nearly instant, unlike Ezreal Ezreal's Trueshot Barrage.png Trueshot Barrage.
    • Be careful when you have the Illumination.png Illumination debuff on while Lux Lux fires Final Spark.png Final Spark as you will receive both the damage proc from the Illumination.png Illumination and the laser itself.
  • Move away from Lux Lux until the Illumination.png Illumination debuff wears off to reduce the damage you will take.
  • Do not run in a straight line when running away from or chasing Lux Lux. It is best to sidestep to avoid her Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity or Light Binding.png Light Binding.
  • Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier does not do any damage, thus you do not need to dodge it. However, be ready to dodge Lux Lux's other skills.
  • Due to the small and narrow paths in the jungle, Lux Lux's spells become more than likely to land, enabling her to fully use her combo, which can devastate any carries or squishies.
    • This also becomes a problem / advantage in team fights that occur in these areas. Lux Lux can easily deal massive damage to enemies who stand in a line.
    • Lux Lux's Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier is also more than likely to hit, shielding all her allies which will cause a large problem / advantage, preventing a large amount of DPS dealt to her team.
  • Lux Lux is generally countered by champions that can survive her burst and chase her/close the distance, such as Wukong Wukong.
  • Lux Lux is a skill shot based champion. Though her abilities move rather quickly, it is still possible to dodge them. However, Final Spark.png Final Spark fires instantly; using Flash.png Flash to escape being hit by this may be necessary.
