Lux, The Lady of Luminosity is a ranged support AP carry with good supportive capabilities as well as burst damage. Her passive Illumination grants her spells a mark, which can be activated with autoattacks for bonus damage. Her Q Light Binding is a skillshot that snares the first two enemy units it hits. W Prismatic Barrier is a skillshot that shields allied champions, both on outward journey and inward. E Lucent Singularity shoots an AoE orb that slows and reveals, which can be detonated to deal damage. Her ultimate Final Spark is a long-ranged laser that activates her passive and deals heavy damage. Her Q is quite easy to avoid, but if you are caught by it Lux can use all her abilities to follow up for huge burst damage. Her ultimate's as well as other abilities' cooldowns get very low with CDR, this not only helps her deal more damage but grants her more utility too in the late-game. Commonly played in the mid lane, although she can be a successful support too.

Description

Lore: Born to the prestigious Crownguards, the paragon family of Demacian service, Luxanna was destined for greatness. She grew up as the family's only daughter, and she immediately took to the advanced education and lavish parties required of families as high profile as the Crownguards. As Lux matured, it became clear that she was extraordinarily gifted. She could play tricks that made people believe they had seen things that did not actually exist. She could also hide in plain sight. Somehow, she was able to reverse engineer arcane magical spells after seeing them cast only once. She was hailed as a prodigy, drawing the affections of the Demacian government, military, and citizens alike.

As one of the youngest women to be tested by the College of Magic, she was discovered to possess a unique command over the powers of light. The young Lux viewed this as a great gift, something for her to embrace and use in the name of good. Realizing her unique skills, the Demacian military recruited and trained her in covert operations. She quickly became renowned for her daring achievements; the most dangerous of which found her deep in the chambers of the Noxian High Command. She extracted valuable inside information about the Noxus-Ionian conflict, earning her great favor with Demacians and Ionians alike. However, reconnaissance and surveillance was not for her. A light of her people, Lux's true calling was the League of Legends, where she could follow in her brother's footsteps and unleash her gifts as an inspiration for all of Demacia.

"Her guiding light makes enemies wary, but they should worry most when the light fades."

- Garen, The Might of Demacia
