Five Reasons to Main Lux

Lux is the poster girl of Riot. She is the main character of her own comic book and in League of Legends Patch 12.21 she is taking the crown of the champion with the most skins in the whole entire game. Two prestige skins, the best ultimate skin of them all, she's got everything. 

But now we're wondering why you should become a Lux main. What makes her such a fun pick and so popular? She's got a solid pick rate of 7% as a support and a decent pick rate in the mid lane as well at 3%. What makes her so strong and why should you become a Lux main? 

Not your cup of tea? Check out our other champions: 


League of Legends: Why You Should Play Lux 

Her Ultimate Cooldown is Practically 0 

Lux is a great champion in the mid to late game thanks to her ultimate. You build just a bit of ability haste on her and boom! You will have your ultimate in every important situation. Throughout long fights and skirmishes you could even have it a second time if you initiate the fight with it. 

In 2021 Riot shortened her cooldown as well which has only improved her in the eyes of the community. Hell, the cooldown is so short you can quickly use it to clear a wave, then move on to another lane where it'll be up again so you can ult an opposing champion in a fight. So easy, right? 

Playing Lux in URF is a no-brainer, but what other champions should you try out? 

Lux is a Versatile Champion 

We've already touched upon it, but Lux can be played in various positions. She isn't a one trick pony stuck to the mid lane, instead she is able to ride free into the sunset and onto any lane she damn well pleases. Sure, top lane Lux might not be meta, but trust me it's totally doable. 

But the most common places we will find a Lux is either the bot lane or the mid lane. She has great zoning tools in her kit which makes her a great pick. Need to know whether you're about to be ganked? Throw out that E into the brush in the river since it'll grant you vision. Wards are so 2021, right? 


She is a great support thanks to her W shield and the snare of her Q is also annoying to deal with. Especially if you're stuck in low elo and your opponent tries to hide behind a minion... joke's on them the Q lands on two targets! 

But not only are her defensive abilities great, you can also build full AP on Lux and do so much damage. Throw out your Q to snare opponents, quickly follow it up with E and boom! Half the health bar of the opponent is gone. No matter the lane, Lux is a threat. 

Tilting Your Opponents is Easy

Lux is also one of those champions that just tilt the opposition. Her slow, her stun and her damage are enough to make you want to rip out your hair, but the fact that she has one of the most annoying laughs in the entire god damn game? Now that is just unacceptable... if you're on the opposite team.

Throw out that Q, hit them with your E and follow it up with an ultimate then just stand over the enemies dead corpse press CTRL + 4 (or the boomer way: write /laugh in chat) and giggle away in the most obnoxious way possible. Thanks Rito. 

Lux Is a Beginner Friendly Champion

Lux is also a very easy champion to master. Unlike some champions, looking at you Zoe, you won't need to put in hundreds of hours to make her work. Her kit is super easy to understand and you will be able to see yourself improve at the game in no time. You don't need to think of a million combos to master her. 

Her kit is very straightforward and while her Q is considered a skillshot she's still got insane AoE damage on her E. Just make sure to aim your ultimate in the right direction. Just remember that if you do land your Q it's nearly impossible to miss your ultimate.

Lux Has the Most Skins Out of Anyone

If you want to be a true sweaty Lux main, then you will also need to have some deep pockets. Lux has the most skins out of every single champion in League of Legends. Yes, she has overtaken Ezreal and Miss Fortune in terms of skins. Wild, eh? 

Sure, not all over her skins are magnificent. Lux is a pretty old champions so she's got some older medicore skins as well in her inventory, but the new Lux skins are all bangers. Hell, she's even got one of the best skins in the entire game which is her Elementalis Lux skin. It's also one of the most expensive, but if it looks this good, who even cares, right? 

Overall, Lux is a pretty fun champion that can be played on multiple lanes. She's easy to pick up and will annoy the opposition. Everything comes together and this makes her one of the best champions to main in Season 13. Trust us.
