How to play Lux


In this guide, we will be taking a look at Lux Support. It's worth mentioning that you can also play Lux in the mid lane. Lux is an enchanter support champion. She excels at shielding and healing to help out your team and to help keep them alive. She has a pretty strong laning phase you just need to be careful if the enemy bot lane engages onto you because you do not have a lot of health and can die very quickly. The later the game goes the better Lux gets. Her shields and crowd control from Light Binding become even stronger and you can do a lot more to keep your team alive.


Lux can also be played in the mid lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! With Lux mid, you want to build towards more damage so you can be impactful in team fights and you don't need to worry about protecting your ad carry. 

Lux Build Breakdown


Luden's Echo
Imperial Mandate
Staff of Flowing Water
Rabadon's Deathcap
Void Staff
Ionian Boots of Lucidity - Protect

Lux does best with support items that give her shields more power. With that in mind, Luden's Echo is a great first item for Lux. It's not really a 'Support' item but the stats and passive benefit her a lot when playing to try and carry. Another strong item is Staff of Flowing Water. This item gives her a lot of Ability Power, Mana and Ability Haste which are all good stats that will help Lux carry her team. Also when Lux heals or shields an ally, they both get Ability Haste and Ability Power for a few seconds.


With runes, we have the following:

Aery

This gives Lux more shield power and also allows you to deal a bit extra damage which is nice for early game trades in the laning phase.

Weakness

Lux's 1st ability, Light Binding, immobilizes the enemy and can hit multiple targets, so your team can follow up and deal 5% more damage to that enemy.

Hunter - Titan

Hunter-Titan gives Lux some much-needed health and tenacity whenever she gets a takedown. This includes when she shields someone and they get the kill.

Hunter - Genius

Same as Hunter - Titan, Lux will always get involved in team fights and will get a lot of takedowns with her heals and shields. After every unique takedown, Lux gets Ability Haste so she can use her abilities more often.

Flash
Heal

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get you out of a bad situation or allows you to flash and save your ally or even maybe get a kill. Heal works really well as a 2nd summoner spell choice if your AD Carry takes barrier however if your bot lane duo (AD Carry) also takes heal it is really bad for you to also go heal because you don't get the full effect. If this happens then change heal to Ignite to help kill the enemies.

Early Game


Lux does well in the early game, you can poke the enemy with Lucent Singularity and if you can time your Prismatic Barrier shield you can win trades vs the enemy bot lane. The most important spell to hit during the laning phase is Light Binding. If you can land this ability in the laning phase the enemy will be rooted and you can win the trade vs the enemy every time. You have to be very careful when stepping forward with Lux as if you get caught out and engaged on you can die very quickly.

Late Game


The later the game goes the stronger Lux gets as her shields and heals get stronger with more items. Surprisingly Lux can still do a lot of damage as a support. If you land Light Binding on the enemy make sure you follow it up with Final Spark to deal a lot of damage. It is really important as a support that you stay with your team and help them during team fights. Prioritize staying back and keeping your carries alive protecting them against the enemy team using everything possible to keep them alive. The AD Carry in your team is one of the main damage sources and keeping he/her alive is really important! 

Conclusion


Overall Lux relies a lot on landing and hitting skill shots, I'd recommend going into practice mode to give her a try first to see what she does but when you get into the game you can stay back, use your shield, and damage to win the game.
