Lux Build Breakdown

Luden’s Echo is the best item for Lux. The reason this item gives Lux everything from ability power, magic penetration to mana. Moreover, the passive also enhances damage when reaching enough Harmony stacks. And it spreads damage to 3 nearby enemies. A champion with long-range skills, specialized in poking, this is a very useful item in teamfights.

Infinity Orb is an item heavy on ability power. It also gives critical damage to enemies below 35% health. With this item, the chance of using the ultimate skill to kill enemy champions is very high.

Rabadon’s Deathcap is also an item with super ability power. With just these 3 items, a combo of Lux will surely kill enemy champions with low durability.

When returning to mid and late game, Lux is likely to be attacked by enemy champions with high mobility. Crown of the Shattered Queen is the item I will buy at this stage. Having an extra shield will help Lux escape situations where she is bursted down.

Awakened Soulstealer is an item that is very suitable if Lux is strong and has a high kill rate on enemy champions. The good thing about this item is that it reduces the cooldown time by 25%. This way Lux can use her skills more often. Creating more pressure.

I prefer to play aggressively. So the items I buy are all oriented towards damage. Personally, I think Lux creates pressure from her crowd control and high damage abilities better than building Lux in the direction of creating shields and healing for allies.

Lux abilities

Chớp Lửa Soi Rọi ILLUMINATION

Her passive empowers his basic attacks to deal extra damage after using a skill that hits an enemy champion. Remember to use a basic attack after using a skill to maximize the damage from your passive.

Khóa Ánh Sáng LIGHT BINDING

Launch a ball that can root enemy champions. The root duration is up to 2 seconds. I use this skill as a prerequisite to unleash a combo of damage. Whenever the enemy is rooted. I will use all the remaining damage skills.

Lăng Kính Phòng Hộ PRISMATIC BARRIER

Create a magic shield. Calculate your path so that your allies get the shield twice. I usually use it when being chased.

Quả Cầu Ánh Sáng LUCENT SINGULARITY

Create a light area that deals damage as soon as the enemy touches it. This skill deals AOE damage and slows enemies by 30%. If combined smoothly with skill 1. The enemy will definitely feel powerless when Lux binds them.

Cầu Vồng Tối Thượng FINAL SPARK

Create a straight line of light across the map. This skill is used last after binding the enemy. Try to always observe the whole map. Any area where enemy champions are low on health. Use it.

How to play Lux

Lux is a champion that I play quite a lot. About 400 matches. Here is how I play this champion well.

In fact, you only need to remember one formula for me. 1 - 3 - 4. That is, use skill 1 to root the enemy, then use skill 3,4 to deal damage.

All of Lux’s skills are skillshots. Long range, slow-moving damage skills. This leads to the enemy being very easy to dodge.

Fortunately, the skills deal relatively large damage. Therefore, the only optimal way is to root the enemy.

At the laning phase or teamfight. Lux always needs to go with teammates. Lux’s role is to create pressure with crowd control effects, poke the enemy.

Lux will definitely be killed if caught alone, because of low mobility and durability.

A small note is that Lux can create a magic shield, try to use the skill to shield as many allies as possible. If not, just pay attention to the AD and yourself.

Lux pros and cons

Pros

  • Has hard crowd control skills.
  • Can deal crowd control and area of effect damage.
  • Long range attack.
  • Fast skill cooldown.
  • High damage.

Cons

  • Low mobility, low durability.
  • To have high damage power, very dependent on items.

Conclusion

Lux Wild Rift can play well in both Support or Mid Mage roles. You should practice well the skillshots as the key to play this champion well. I hope that the item build for Lux Wild Rift updated according to the new Meta will help you master this champion.
