Lux Gameplay tips and tricks: 

Now, let’s move on to the some Lux gameplay tips and tricks we have found for you,

1. After hitting an enemy with light binding or lucent singularity remember to hit them with your basic attack. As when you hit the enemy with your skill they will get illuminated, and your passive skill becomes activated. So, when you do basic attack, it will deal bonus damage based on the level.

2. If you are not carrying the ward and want to check the bushes, then you can use your third ability lucent singularity to check inside the bush. Just cast the skill where you think the enemy might be hiding and if skills hit them, they will get illuminated.

3. User your 3rd skill just after your first skill. Your first skill will root the enemy so you can cast your third skill easily. If you have your ultimate unlock, then you can form a combo.

4. Always aim in the ally champion direction before casting your second skill as a prismatic barrier will provide a shield to your allies so they can last longer during the team fight.
