No. just...No. no one wants lux to be buffed, that is just absurd.

She brings utility to a team that xerath can't. she has a root, a slow, an ult that hits for 1.2k at level 15, and a shield. you pick her for different reasons than you would pick xerath

You pick xerath when you want wave clear.


you forgot how her ult's cd can be as low as 30 secs
and how, because of her passive, lux can get into mid range brawls

Because Lux's W is one of the best in the game.

Lux is better than Xerath.

Is that a reason to pick her?

Lux has much more control I feel over her abilities than Xerath, I prefer her Q over his E for instance and I find her AOE slow field a lot easier to control as well.

Xerath also has a ton of delayed abilities, Lux doesn't really at all.

Also Xerath is more of a DPS rather than a burst mage, Lux combining all of her skills together at once is a fierce amount of damage.

Xerath's ult while having high range is also probably 1/100x as reliable as Lux's ult I can and always have been able to land Lux ults on an entire team in a teamfight, or snipe someone.... with Xerath that takes A LOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT more effort.


And I certainly wouldn't say Xerath could chain his abilities into a burst. Even with a fancy W E Q at once combo I don't feel "burstY" other than against squishies



Truly a historic day, it's not even a ****post.. im so proud.

Her laugh
her boobs
her splash in the loading screen

3 reasons just from the top of my head.

The shield

Seriously, with how strong late game ADCs and many junglers are right now, the shield is pretty god mode. Any grouped jungle skirmishes are laughing (teehee) matters for lux because she just throws her combo down the center and wins the fight.

Xerath is amazingly strong but lets face it... he's about murdering people rather than being a delicate balance of insane utility and burst.

Lemme tell you something critical.

The players of this ****ing game are sheep.

Viktor was BROKEN AS ALL ABSOLUTE HELL before rework.

YES HE WAS. I ABUSED HIM A LOT. HE WAS INSANELY OPPRESSIVE IF HE GOT AHEAD. I could back once and walk into lane and proceed to **** all over on the enemy midlaner with well over 100 AP gained from a single backing.

Did he become FOTM pretty rework? Nope! Not at all. He was under the radar.

LUX is in a very similar position right now. And anyone that is a proper midlane main can tell you this. Lux is potent as all **** in the right hands.
