So I have had Lux in my arsenal for a long time now. For the life of me I can’t recall why I haven’t really played her. Maybe because her brother, Garen, annoys me so?
But after watching stream after stream come through with Lux as part of a ranked team, plus how much I and everyone else hates her ult when playing against her (it’s amazing how hard it is to get out of the way of that red laser warning), I decided to give her a spin. In fact, I think today is the first time I have ever played her, go figure!
Net net is that she is a complete and total blast to play! How have I been missing out for so long? Her ult is as amazing as one would expect and I am happy to say that the “aaaaayah!” that she yells just prior is quite satisfying (as opposed to annoying). Then you have a stun, a slow and a shield, the latter of which I never used and spec’d last but likely very useful once I learn to maximize its boomerang goodness. Gonna keep playing her against intermediate bots until I have it down and then voila, another gal I can pull out in Normal draft matches.
