Charge up your lasers and go PEW PEW PEW PEW.. Preferably while they are stunned, in large groups, and at low hp.

Check the guides section, they have lots of good guides there for you to check out and there are a number of them on Lux.

In general though? Practice the hellout of your skillshots if you can't land them she's not worth playing.

Use your "q" to snare someone, then use your "e" on them while they're snared, and ult if they're low enough. quite simple really.

Lux is all skillshots, although E is debatable. As such, she has a) high capacity of utter failure but also b) stupidly high range and potential for amazing snipes. She is sitting at 3150 which is rather cheap for a female mage champ (probably because she's reasonably dressed) If you want to play her, you want to be capable of basic aim, and probably advanced aim too. Don't lock your screen.

Skilling R->E->W->Q with one level of Q at level one. Itemization is D-Ring, Sorc Shoes, Soulstealer, Deathcap, Morello's. Use bluepot as needed. Mix up the order if needed. For example, if you can get an early NLR, you are going to rush Deathcap. If you don't get the Golem consistently, Morello's might be of higher priority. Lux at maximal CDR is a force to behold, as her normal ability cooldowns, with the exception of LAZERS RAAAGH, are rather high.

Choose summoner spells from Ghost, Flash, Teleport, and perhaps Clarity. Runes and masteries can be standard mage runes, find what works best for you here.

Q is decent CC. W is good for throwing as often as you can and it makes sense to level it second. E is your primary harass, be careful to not wastefully use it as it takes a lot of mana when leveled. On the other hand, if you are full, use it to farm.

Place E -> Q -> autoattack -> pop E -> autoattack is your full harassment combo but requires a lot of time to pull off. Once you have laser, you can weave it into the combos. It is most likely to hit after a binding,Once you have the CD below 60 seconds (rank 2 laser or Golem), feel free to spam it a lot more. Use it before you go b, use it to put a little extra damage on your opponent, use it to farm as long as you think you won't need it too fast.

Do abuse W. A double helping of 160 shield on half your team is great. Even if you only get a single hit... its worth it. It's the best against DoT spells, and bad against single-target burst.

Otherwise, stay back and operate from as far away as possible, you've got a Soulstealer to charge.


...that's the gist of how I play Lux.

Say at the back of the fight during the teamfight

Be agressive early game using your Q E combo.... particularly on melee champions.. you have serious firepower... you can get kills by Q E R E(explode)

Mid game your power drops off... and you have to turn it down and spend most of the time shielding and snaring for your team. it is difficult to work out when this transition occurs and this leads to you getting killing if you are too agressive.

Once you have 40 CDR you will be able to fire your Laser every 24 seconds... use it to weaken enemies and clear minon waves.
