Rune Pages

I've prepared two variations of Lux builds to suit your general needs. The "Vs. Squishies" page and its respective build are what you will usually default to in the majority of your games. Alternatively, if you're facing heavy amounts of healing and/or 3+ tanks, use the "Vs. Tanks/Healing" page and it's respective build.

  • Vs. Squishies
  • Vs. Tanks/Healing


Summoner Spells & Items Loadout

Below you will find 2 sets of Summoner Spells, neither of which will likely be seen as traditional and this is by design. In 80-90% of your games, you will take Barrier as your secondary spell to remedy Lux's egregious defenses. It will allow you to play more aggressive without fear of being insta-killed. Cleanse is a personal, niche secondary pick that I highly recommend into a heavy CC (crowd control) matchup or team, such as Ashe & Morgana or Varus & Thresh, etc. This should not be your goto choice, but it is a nice set of "training wheels" that will bail you out of a lot of would-be deaths. See the notes section for a greater explanation.

Skill Path

The only thing to note out of the ordinary is that I take 2 points in E at level 3. This is VERY important. Your E gains 50 more damage with that additional point, and believe me - that is MASSIVE. Your leveling order doesn't change outside of this slight adjustment. Take a point in your Ultimate whenever you can (6, 11, and 16), and max your E, then Q, then W.

Item Builds

As with the runes, there are two build sets provided in this guide for your general needs. Your build should reflect your runes and vise versa. In most of your games, you will want to opt for the "Vs. Squishies" build as this build offers the most damage. Alternatively, against heavy healing or especially tanky enemy team compositions, you will want to take the "Vs. Tanks/Healing" Build.

Regardless of which build you take, Lost Chapter is mandatory and you should prioritize it first, no matter what. If you can't afford it in full, prioritize its components over the blasting wand. Don't get Blasting Wand first - EVER!

  • Vs. Tanks/Healing

Disclaimer: I am not, nor do I claim, or pretend to be a high elo player. This guide was created for the purpose of sharing what accrued knowledge I have about my champion with newer, aspiring Lux mains. The above guide is predicated on what I have experienced to be the most effective up and into Mid-Platinum. This is not a guide for high elo or heavily experienced players.*
