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
  • Use Light Binding.png Light Binding to set up your combo. The standard combo is to land Light Binding.png Light Binding, followed by placing Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity on top of the victim, then using Final Spark.png Final Spark. Follow it up with an Illumination.png autoattack, detonate Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity, then Illumination.png autoattack again. This combo is usually more than enough to vaporize a squishy target, and will take a fair chunk out of a tank as well.
  • Illumination.png Illumination is the key to maximizing Lux Lux's damage output. Attempt to weave autoattacks in between ability casts whenever possible.
  • At the second and third rank, Final Spark.png Final Spark has a very low cooldown. Don't be afraid to use it to secure kills and poke away at enemies if you are sure you will not have a better opportunity within the next minute or so.
  • Lux Lux has very long range. Use this to harass and poke your enemies from safety, and stay far enough behind your frontline to ensure your safety. She is very squishy, so pay close attention to your positioning.
  • Fights in tight areas like the jungle severely favor Lux Lux. Her Lucent Singularity.png area of effect abilities are significantly harder to avoid, and the tendency of champions to line up while pathing through narrow pathways increases the odds of her Final Spark.png ultimate hitting multiple champions.
  • When fleeing, throw Prismatic Barrier.png Prismatic Barrier in the direction you are moving. This will cause the projectile to come back to you and refresh the shield sooner.
  • Final Spark.png Final Spark gives vision before it fires. You can use it to see if the enemy team is attempting to do Baron NashorSquare.png Baron Nashor or Dragon.png Dragon. Additionally, non-stealthed enemies will be briefly revealed after they are hit.
  • Lux Lux has strong waveclear and can push aggressively. However, be wary of overextending, as she has low mobility and may have a hard time escaping ganks, especially if she misses her Light Binding.png Light Binding.
  • Lux Lux can also be played as an aggressive support. Her long range allows her to harass the enemy marksman and support from relative safety, and her high utility is invaluable when setting up or escaping from ganks. Her passive has synergy with Spellthief&#039;s Edge item.png Spellthief's Edge and it's related items, as triggering her passive will allow her to steal extra gold and deal damage simultaneously.
Mastery Usage
  • Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree is almost certainly the best mastery if you plan on building ability power. Hitting an enemy with a spell and triggering your passive will also trigger Thunderlord&#039;s Decree mastery 2016.png Thunderlord's Decree, as your Illumination.png passive, the autoattack, and the spell all count as separate attacks. This serves as excellent harassment during the laning stage, and a substantial addition of damage during the mid and late game.
  • Expanded Mind mastery s4.png Intelligence will help Lux maximize her cooldown reduction. At max rank and cooldown reduction, Final Spark.png Final Spark's cooldown will be 27.5 seconds, enough to use it as a poke ability.
  • Strength of Spirit mastery s4.png Meditation will help Lux sustain her mana pool in lane, allowing her to keep up the aggression in the early game.
Item Usage
  • Starting a Doran&#039;s Ring item.png Doran's Ring over a The Dark Seal item.png Dark Seal is recommended. Lux Lux has very high mana costs and, with most opponents, she will be out of range to be taking much damage.
  • Lux Lux is very mana-hungry and she has long cooldowns. Morellonomicon item.png Morellonomicon is an essential item to sustain her mana, and reaching 45% cooldown reduction with the Expanded Mind mastery s4.png Intelligence mastery is recommended. Her survivability and damage output both rely on it.
  • Lich Bane item.png Lich Bane has incredible synergy with Lux Lux's Illumination.png passive and gives her mana and cooldown reduction, but making effective use of it can be dangerous, as it requires her to close into autoattack range. Determine how you like to play her - as a long-range caster, or a deadly kiter - before you commit to this item.
  • Alternatively, Zhonya&#039;s Hourglass item.png Zhonya's Hourglass serves as a good defensive option and also gives cooldown reduction.
  • Luden&#039;s Echo item.png Luden's Echo is good buy on Lux Lux, as she has low base movement speed and she benefits substantially from the passive that enhances her area damage.
  • Rylai&#039;s Crystal Scepter item.png Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Liandry&#039;s Torment item.png Liandry's Torment are not recommended. Lux is a strong burst mage, and does not rely on sustained damage, so Liandry&#039;s Torment item.png Liandry's Torment does not add very much. Light Binding.png Light Binding is an immobilization skill, and Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity's slow lingers slightly after it detonates, rendering Rylai&#039;s Crystal Scepter item.png Rylai's useless.
  • As an ability power carry, Rabadon&#039;s Deathcap item.png Rabadon's Deathcap is an essential buy.
  • Many enemies have magic resistance that increases as they level up. Buying a Void Staff item.png Void Staff as a last or second-to-last item will help Lux Lux's attacks deal significantly more damage.
  • Ardent Censer item.png Ardent Censer provides some AP, CDR, mana regen, and increases the strength of your shields. It also gives shielded allies some additional attack speed and magic damage on hit. Shielding your whole team with this effect can help secure an objective/tower, or turn the tide of a teamfight.
Countering
  • Do not bunch up against Lux Lux. This makes you an easy target for her Lucent Singularity.png area of effect abilities.
  • Light Binding.png Light Binding can hit a second enemy behind the first, with no reduction in damage or root duration. Be wary of hiding behind lone minions or traveling in pairs.
  • Illumination.png Illumination deals a fair amount of damage at all stages of the game. If possible, retreat after being hit to allow the debuff to wear off.
  • Lux Lux is extremely squishy and all her abilities are skillshots. Champions who have Zed high mobility will have an easier time eliminating her, provided they can dodge her attacks.
  • Ambushing Lux Lux will decrease the likelihood of her kiting and keeping you out of range of her. However, be wary if she has teammates nearby, as her Light Binding.png Light Binding and Lucent Singularity.png Lucent Singularity will likely lock you down long enough for them to follow up.
  • Keep in mind that abilities like Braum Braum's Unbreakable.png Unbreakable and Yasuo Yasuo's Wind Wall.png Wind Wall will block all of Lux Lux's basic abilities, but not her Final Spark.png ultimate.
  • Lux Lux's Final Spark.png Final Spark deals the same damage to all enemies caught in it - hiding behind minions or other champions will not protect you.
  • Lux Lux has a good chance of surviving tower dives, or at least netting a kill or two in return. Ensure her Light Binding.png Light Binding is on cooldown before you commit to a dive.
  • Lux Lux deals mainly magic damage. Itemize accordingly.
