Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.
Landing Crescent Strike is critically important, but don't be afraid to miss. The cooldown is short and the mana cost is low.
Use Moonfall and Lunar Rush to stay on targets and activate Moonsilver Blade for extra damage.
When retreating with low health, be prepared to dodge Lux's Final Spark, a red targeting beam fires prior to the main beam, so try to move to the side if possible.
Lux has powerful zone control abilities. Try to spread out and attack from different directions so she cannot lock down a specific area.
