I play a lot of lux and do rather well. I was wondering how she compares with other Mids in ranked and if it is worth it to start bringing her into ranked. Thanks for the feedback.

She seems viable to me. Her burst is pretty crazy if she hits with snare > aa > singularity > aa > ult and she's got a shield + snare to help v.s. ganks.

Her late game is good but she's the type that just bursts hard then is useless in fights for a bit, which sort of sucks.

enh...nukers are nukers, lux does have crazy range tho. with max cdr you can get the lazor down to a 24 sec cd.

It depends on team comp. How often do you miss your Q? If you miss it I know you have 15 seconds before you can use it again early lvls. I hope you like farming under turret because it's the only place you'll be safe from junglers.

She is pretty good in ranked but you need to build CDR, if you build all AP you just sit around for 10 seconds every fight which doesn't help your team. You should have no problem winning your lane or staying even as long as you have blue buff since farming doesn't get much easier than lux.

Thanks guys. This has been pretty helpful. I usually build her heavy ap to start then end with some CDR. I use blue pots a lot and that seems to get the job done. And I can hit snares when I need to. I run clarity (also so i dont need blue early), so i sometimes just toss one out to see what i can get, but when I am looking to land I would say I get 75%+. and junglers dont give me much problem. I can snare them (and usually the mid guy too) and run.

Hit your skillshots and maintain good positioning and she's great.

Also.. don't first pick her because she has some really poor matchups versus any assassin style mages (katarina, kass, lb, akali to lesser extent)

kat i can usually handle, but kass and LB give me problems. Well you all have been very helpful, wish me luck, and thanks for your opinions.

She's meh. There are other mids that do the job better.

I personally think that Lux is a very viable mid. But like someone stated; why choose her when you can play Ryze with an auto-lock snare or Morgana with higher AP ratios on moves that deal more damage? (let's admit, 300 base damage level 5 snare is strong). Lux also needs the correct team composition. She cannot simply kill people once the game really gets going at around the 25-30 minute mark, so she needs characters that can kill off people. Lux becomes nothing more than a health-melter/support-ish champion later on. Throwing out snares to catch people, throwing E to check bushes and shielding team-mates as often as you can. While throwing out your combo to bring the enemy team to critical health.

Lux works very well if you don't mess up your combo in team fights. Early/mid-game her combo is devastating and will turn many team fights in your team's favor. I find it hard to lose lane as well. A good Lux will know her limits against any opponent.
