Lux FAQs

Q: Where should I aim my E (Lucent Singularity)?

A: If you want to better aim your skill-shot AoE with Lux in League, try throwing it just a little bit behind your enemy. Most of the time, other players seem to run backwards to avoid your shot. Throwing it a little behind them will keep them inside the area of effect, even when they try to dodge it. If they run forward, root them with your Q.

Q: What are Lux's greatest strengths?

A: Lux's greatest strengths include her long ability range and her great mix of damage and utility. She makes a great support or AP carry. She is particularly well suited to poking and team fighting. You should include plenty of AP and CDR in your Lux build to maximize her abilities.

Q: What is Lux's greatest weakness?

A: Lux's greatest weakness is her poor mobility. She only has her Q to stop enemies from closing with her. Lux has a very difficult time <a href="/champion/lux/counters/" target="_blank">countering other champions</a> with a lot of mobility, such as Zed, LeBlanc, and Yone.

The most essential items to include in your champion's build include: Liandry's Anguish, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Shard of True Ice. Players who added these pieces in their builds had a higher win rate than players who utilized other Lux builds. Likewise, if you are trying to beat a well-mixed enemy team arrangement, you should really consider grabbing yourself the Sorcery, and Inspiration runes. In recent matches, she won the largest number of her matches when built with these runes.
