Summoner Spells

Hide Notes
  • Barrier
  • Flash

Those are the most common summoner spells to take, since they work well against all matchups and with Lux's abilities.

Runes

  • sorcery
    SORCERY
  • Arcane Comet
  • Manaflow Band
  • Transcendence
  • Gathering Storm
  • inspiration
    INSPIRATION
  • Perfect Timing
  • Cosmic Insight
Bonus :

+12 Attack damage or +20 ability power, adaptive

Arcane Comet is a very good option playing as midlane, since you can poke during laning face with Lux's E and it will be a bonus damage during all the game.

- MANAFLOW BAND: in case you are facing a lot of ap damage it is better to take NULLIFYING ORB instead.
- COSMIC INSIGHT: if you start the game with CORRUPTING POTION it is better to take TIME WARP TONIC instead.

All selected runes are standard, you should judge depending on your matchup.

Items

Start option 1

  • Doran's Ring
  • Health Potion

Start option 2

  • Corrupting Potion

If you pick the rune Time Warp Tonic you should take Corrupting Potion as your starting item.

Core

  • Luden's Echo
  • Sorcerer's Shoes
  • Zhonya's Hourglass
  • Morellonomicon
  • Rabadon's Deathcap

Luden's Echo is a very good start item, since it gives you a lot of ap, 20% cdr, and mana, but it is very expensive. If you are having a bad early, you might want to prioritize other items (like Zhonyas or Vanshee) after getting the Lost Chapter (which will help you not run out of mana and stay more time in lane farming).
In case you are facing a champ like Zed, Yasuo or Talon, it is very recommendable to rush Seeker's Armguard before buying Echo (this will help you survive laning against them).
Morellonomicon is a very good item against magic resist items, and champs that heal a lot. If you are facing a champ with a lot of life steal or life regeneration, buying this item or not can decide the game.
Rabadon's Deathcap is a lategame item (the more ap you have when you buy it more ap will give you).

Situational

  • Banshee's Veil
  • Void Staff
  • Archangel's Staff

In case you are facing a champ with an ap damage burst (like Akali, Diana, ...) it might be necessary to rush asap Vanshee (because it will prevent you from dying, and it will still give you damage).
Void staff should be only when facing a very tanky team that bought magic resist and you don't deal enough damage because of that. But if it's not an extreme case, Morello should be enough.

Support start

  • Spellthief's Edge
  • Control Ward
  • Health Potion

In case you are take the rune Biscuit Delivery, you can start the game taking only 1 potion and buy a Control Ward, which can help your team prevent early ganks and invades.

  • Notes
Easy
ZoeZoe

This can be either a very easy or difficult matchup. You need to have in mind that: if you position yourself behind minions Zoe's Q and E won't hit you (if you are very close to minions, her Q can hit you but the damage will be way lower); if Zoe wastes her ult she will always return to the spot she was, so she will be a very easy target to hit with your combo (take advantage of that!); and that she deals a lot of damage with her Q, so it is a good idea to build Zhonya's (to use it to avoid her Q) or Vanshee's (to not get hit by her Q or E, and to take less damage from her).

Easy
EkkoEkko

Lux is a hard counter of Ekko, since if you get him with your Q he can't use his ult. But you need to keep in mind that he can dodge with his E (also that the second part of his E is a blink). Also, you should expect most of Ekko players to try to dive you, since they totally trust in their ult to save them, but if you save your Q for when that happens and then use your combo he will probably die before being able to use his ult.

CassiopeiaCassiopeia

Hard
YasuoYasuo

This matchup is really hard because of Yasuo's mobility and windwall (that blocks all your abilities but your ult). In this case you should pay attention to his 3rd Q (in order to dodge it), try to not let him be close to you (always try to keep your distance, because you can hit him from far and he needs to be closer to hit you) and rush Seeker's Armguard. I recommend to not cast your abilities until he wastes his Windwall (even try to bait him).

Hard
ZedZed

As an assassin, Zed is a champion with a lot of damage. Because of that, it is a good idea to rush Seeker's Armguard and buy Zhonyas as soon as possible. Try to poke him in lane with your E (always save your Q, because if you waste it you will loose an important ability to defend yourself), and if he is eventually low he will have to back or he can die to a gank of your jungler. IMPORTANT: Expect him to roam a lot (usually to bot lane, since he can kill the adc very easily), so ping your team when he is missing to avoid giving him kills.

Hard
FizzFizz

Fizz is a magic damage assassin with a lot of damage. You need to be very careful at lvl 6, since he might be able to kill you with an all in. You should try to abuse him in lane before lvl 6 (since he is melee), and you should buy as soon as possible Vanshee's (to survive his damage) or Zhonya's (to use it to avoid his ult's damage). IMPORTANT: He will try to dodge your Q with his E, so try to save your Q for when he alredy used his E. Something that you can expect from most Fizz players is to wait until they have ult, and use it to assassin you, all the times they come back from base.

Hard
AhriAhri

Ahri can be a hard matchup because of her dodge ability with her ult, but playing well against her can make this matchup the complete opposite. It is very important to not waste your Q very soon, since she will dodge it easily with her ult (unless she just doesn't expect it). If you wait until she doesn't have ult you will have an easier shot for your Q.
But this can be a problem sometimes if she is alredy very powerful, and waiting until she doesn't have ult can mean you are dead alredy. In that case, you should try to land your Q just after she uses a dash of her ult, since she has an internal cooldown between casting all 3 dashes of her ult (you will have a short time to land your Q before she can ult again).

Hard
VladimirVladimir

Vladimir might be the hardest matchup of all. He has a laning advantage (he doesn't waste mana, he can heal himself with his Q, and he can dodge all your abilities with his W). Same as with all other matchups, it is important to not waste your Q before time, try to save it until he wastes his W. Also it is very important that you buy Morellonomicon, since it will make him heal less when you fight against him (which will make a big difference in teamfights).
