this was the first build since ad malz wayy back that really blew my mind in terms of role switch builds so I had to try it. it works so well o m g. I came across it when an opponent tanklux served me a rare loss with Elise. don't flame if this is old, I quit league for 6+ months, came back 2 months ago and haven't ever seen this one.

Core:
CDR Boots ---> Merc Treads
(Chalice)
Aegis
Frozen Heart

Optional:
Abyssal
Randuin's
Sweeper (for stealth)
Any other tank item pretty much


The guy I asked said mana wasn't an issue so he never bought chalice, but I found myself empty on mana fast without much mp5. chalice worked incredibly well and allowed to stay on the field much longer.

Your job pretty much obvious: disrupt captures with Q E R. kite all day with snare slow, esp during team fights!! your focus is to keep a slow or snare on a target that is being dps'd, allowing more dmg to be done and most likely getting a kill. You can kite 90% of heroes for days with low CD Q and E. make sure you are BAITING them straight into your teammates. they will almost always burn half their stuff on you thinking you will die. my favorite is 2v1 under your tower, thinking they can burst you down haha

so far 8(9?)-3 with her, will post more pics if you still don't think this is completely viable :P

Why build tank on a champ with such good range and poke?

There's that SivHD Counter-Bruiser Bruiser Lux youtube vid somewhere out there........

Lets just say, Lux is already Counter-Bruiser Lux, with a shield, a snare, and a slow. Learn how to kite and learn how to proc your passive and there's no need to use tricky weird builds with her.

I feel like if you build mpen/cdr defensive items, you are making the best use of your passive as Lux.
If you just build damage, you can't proc your passive without being instagibbed. Plus her ratios are not that great while the base damage on the ult and passive are very high.

you build tank on her to not be squishy.. as obvious as that sounds. You can kite people and make them chase you to your team (amongst other things). just look at my history, this is 10x more reliable than AP lux, who is literally dead if you miss your Q

In other words, if you suck and die a lot with OP AP Lux, build tanky!

I will never tank my sweetheart out. Stay in the back like you're supposed to and annoy the hell out of them. The only team you should even be trying to proc your passive is when you're in a 1v1 or they're on the run. Otherwise, sit back, annoy, and let your team take them out.
