Lux Matchups Overview
Lux General information
Stick with your team at all costs so you can siege together and poke together. Do not isolate yourself in a side lane as you’ll be an easy target for most enemies.
Before initiating a team fight, try to poke the enemy as much as you can with your abilities. Lux is a poke champion and the more damage you can do beforehand, the easier team fighting will be.
When playing against champions who can engage like Alistar or Thresh, do not use your Q aggressively unless you’re 100% sure you’re going to hit it. Lux is rather defenceless when her Q is down, so you need to keep it available for as long as you can.
Every combo you need to master the champion!
