Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

LuxLux is a champion with very short cooldowns and a lot of range, so spamming her skills is tempting, but does require a lot of mana. I would start with Sapphire CrystalSapphire Crystal and follow up with Tear of the GoddessTear of the Goddess to make sure that I can spam without fearing getting low on mana.

There are two builds with which you can play lux - the supportive one and the damage one. The supportive one will consist of items such as Harmonic EchoHarmonic Echo and Staff of Flowing WatersStaff of Flowing Waters along with Shadows EnchantShadows Enchant to scan for potential ambushes. This build will focus on CDR along with cheap and affordable items to keep yourself relevant even if you are on the losing side.

The damage build is something you might expect a LuxLux on the mid lane to build. These items will provide more damage and will greatly increase your carry potential, but keep in mind that they offer less CDR and are also more expensive. Always remember that supports are always at the bottom of the farming chain, which is why building damage on them can be difficult sometimes.

Lux

How to light up the way

1. LuxLux is a champion that works best from the backlines. Don't rush in and let your tanks create space for you.

2. use Lucent SingularityLucent Singularity to seal off entrances and waypoints or to scan bushes for enemies, as it gives vision of the area.

3.When using Prismatic BarrierPrismatic Barrier , try to move in a straight line behind your team to make sure both waves of the shield hits them.

4. If you know the enemy jungler has no smite, or if you team is taking a jungle objective without a jungler, use Final SparkFinal Spark to secure it from possible steals.

5. You can also use Final SparkFinal Spark to clear minion waves from a great distance, putting pressure on the enemy or relieving some of your own.

6.Always have a positive mindset, you are playing LuxLux after all :)
