The stock standard mid Lux build is Comet with Manaflow/Celerity/Scorch, and Inspiration with Dematerializer/Insight. Dematerializer is non-negotiable on her, because it's the only way that you can hit the damage breakpoint you need to one-hit melee creeps with E.

So many times this patch I've been staring at the screen wondering if I should get hat or manaflow.

According to lolalytics Hat has both a higher pickrate and a higher winrate.

Thank you very much! Your post's totally hot!



I'm having a ton of fun as Trundle right now, he doesn't need a leash if you don't want one and can gank pretty early. His bite starts doing a ton of damage pretty quickly too.

Your mana is still godawful in lane, and you want to go Dematerializer/Cosmic, which locks you out of Biscuit. Ultimate Hat doesn't benefit Lux much, especially at max rank, where the difference between an Ultimate Hat R and a non-Hat R is something around 4-5 seconds (1 second if you get a kill with it).

Her R cooldown is very low already, and a free Lucent Singularity every minute is a lot more useful in her laning phase.

You take Transcendance for some free CDR ontop of your Morellos. Manaflow+Comet+Scorch on her E is some great and free harass

Yeah I wasn't talking bout lux in particular. Hats nice and all but honestly manaflow is practically mandatory for laning phase unless you want to flop about auto attacking

I have spent so much time flopping around d auto attacking staring at a light blue button that is my R. I should run mana to see it again.


Or I should play Aery Garen...

Or you can play midlane like before and actually manage your mana instead of blindly spamming spells

on lux you should 100% go Ultimate Hat because you want your ultimate to always be up on her and she doesn't have hideous mana issues lategame anyway.

Manaflow band is best on champions with enormous mana costs that tend to build huge mana pools and so benefit the most from the 8% max mana restoration as well. Like Anivia or Morgana.

The reduction on her R from Hat is negligible compared to the free mana from manaflow band during her weakest portion of the game, IMO.

Yeah, no one is getting mana band for lategame, but itís insane in early laning.

Donít take minion dematerializer on any champ ever. Instead learn how to last hit and manage your minion waves and mana.

The free 450 gold you get from magical boots is worth more than 6 minions that you can kill one every 10 seconds or whatever.

It gives you a permanent damage increase to the minion type and it lets you avoid the Lux zone where you're constantly 2 damage short of killing all the ranged creeps with E.

If it works on super creeps then it could have a use in some kind of hell siege scenario but the game is so snowbally and lethal right now that sieges are basically an impossibility.

It's the only way to effectively one-hit melee minions on Lux without being full build. Ekko takes it for similar reasons.
