Lux counter tips

Laning Against

Lux is a powerful early skirmisher if she is able to land her abilities. Try and stay out of her auto attack range because most of her early damage comes from proccing her Passive.

Lux’s returning

LuxPrismaticWave

shields for twice the amount of her outgoing shield. Try to burst her before her wand can return in punctuated trades.

Stand apart from the wave to mitigate Lux’s

LuxLightStrikeKugel

effectiveness as a waveclear and poking tool. This will make her choose between using her

LuxLightStrikeKugel

for poking or farming.

Strategy VS

Lux excels in catching out stragglers and gaining picks for her team. Avoid lurking around areas with low vision - getting caught by just one snare (from her Q) will allow her to one shot you.

Build a Zhonya’s, Mercury’s Treads, or Quicksilver Sash to counter Lux burst combo. Although Lux deals AP damage, items are still able to be cast while snared, making Zhonya’s a valuable item.

Lux will tend to hide within the darkness and fog of war so she can burst down an unsuspecting target. Keep an eye on the minimap and play safer when you know she is nearby.

Power Spikes

Lux gains the ability to burst carries down from range when she gets Luden’s. Be wary of her power at this point - being caught by one Binding

LuxLightBinding

will usually result in your death.

Lux is able to max her

LuxLightStrikeKugel

at level 9 and usually hits max CD

LuxMaliceCannon

around this point. It will be harder to play around her cooldowns, but she will still be as vulnerable as before with low mobility.

At level 11, Lux gains a 40% CD refund on her

for kills or assists while using Final Spark

. Avoid lingering around at low health and always be ready to dodge a laser at low HP.
