: People wouldn't be playing her support if it wasn't for Aftershock, though.
Lux support has been more popular than mid Lux since pre season 4 actually. As in, over 3x playrate. Once people stopped being obstinate and insisting she belonged mid she went to her intended location.

: well if I didn't craft them they're weak and also have NO COUNTERBALANCE
They're made and wielded by giant magical demihumans with customizable genitals. I bring up the latter because the weapons are probably meant to balance those out.
: My inle issue, is I think her ult does way more damage than just about any other 'finisher' ult like ezreal or draven.
Ezreal's ult does significantly more base damage and has better scaling than Lux at every rank. She does outdamage draven- if he only hits one part of his ult. Ashe has a massive stun, Jinx has an execute, and Caitlynn is targetted. Lux has lower range than all of them, and only matches or is above 3 of them damage wise. These 3 have additional effects making up for it. The real issue with Lux is her ult reset and the fact _she has the strongest base shield in the game and properly cooridinated it can target her whole team at rank 1_.
: Shedding some light on the situation?
Im really irritated how a bunch of people are hating on Lux mains claiming they're defending her gameplay state. We called for nerfs when her playrate rose above 5%. It is now 26%, and nearing 8x as many people with a still increasing winrate. It's _annoying_ seeing the same fucking people who insisted she was fine now screaming favoritism.

: I had one of the best games of my life last night [Master Elo]
Those are always the best games, where it's about fun instead of winning. I remember one game I was really fucking tilted, 5 game loss streak with trolls and afks then we were in a 3v5 at the end and someone teased me and I kind of snapped. Then I made a dumb typo and just started laughing like crazy and started joking around with everyone and got 7 new friends at the end of the game.

Isn't that just his actual hand though?
: Yet she's never seen with it in the comic. And I suspect it'll be Tianna who orders Sylas executed, so why would she want to imitate her?
Because she hasn't ordered Sylas executed yet but trained Lux in the way of the sword and is a highly respectable person that would probably impress an impressionable young Lux? We've yet to see Lux fight one way or the other, only occasionally use a bit of magic for light or breaking a lock. Why would she have a weapon with her?

? Lux was never the leader of an army I don't think. She was a skilled tactician originally though. I still kind of miss "Tactical decision summoner!"
: Will the Lux comic detail how she gets her wand?
Lux does not actually have a wand, it's actually a military baton she refers to as one. Something to note, batons are generally carried by military Marshals. Since her Aunt Tianna is a Marshal in the Demacian military, Lux's baton would probably be seen as her imitating her aunt.

: Quick Gameplay Thoughts: June 14
Any changes for Lux planned? She's become stronger and stronger for a while now. I'd guess it was because the BA and Prestige skins to make them sell better, but she's hitting a point where people are complaining about her. I'd like her to nerfed without having to be gutted. Since you guys tend to wait till she's a problem before over nerfing her, then slowly buffing her back to broken status.
: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/lying I don't know brother, tell me. What does lying mean? Inaccurate statement? Knowingly saying untruth? You obviously knew that after 6 months (you can guess how many patches and changes these are) the meta changes. But downvote as much as you want. And talk shit as much as you want too, if it makes you feel any better.
A lie is an intentionally false statement. A liar is someone who tells a lie. I didn't say anything false let alone intentionally. So no I'm not a liar. Also not 'talking shit' so... Maybe don't interject into an already finished convos to insult someone?
: It's not a huge mistake. Dumping a champ just because people who can't play the game complain makes zero sense. If you intend on climbing, you should also intend on understanding match ups. Plat+ is the perfect sample size plus the right elo to measure how OP champs are because at high gold/plat people become better mechanically. Also picking a statistic from over 6 months ago just shows your bias and how wrong some posts are. It's not valid which means it's making up numbers to validate your biased opinion. You sir, are a liar.
You... Don't know what lying is.

Plat+ stats are less than like 20% of the games stats and going entirely by them is a huge mistake. Furthermore, I said last I checked, last time I checked was over 6 months ago. Don't go acting like an arrogant jack.

I saw a rioter say this when Azir was released and I saw it again when the Darkin got updated. They were just misc comments on the boards though.
: he is one of the first legendary skins id assume if he gets a vgu or vu they might upgrade his legendary
I actually think he was the first true legendary wasn't he? Like the first one to get a new Voice Over? Technically he could even be considered the first ultimate, since he was the first skin with a new model and a new VO, breaking every standard limitation at the time.
Pakushy (EUW)
: I made a Neeko Animation (but this time I posted it in the right sub-board)
: Yeah, but Ezreal is a specific type of anime trope. He's the cocky, rebellious edgy boy that the girls love. Taric, alternatively is THE heartthrob. He's the Tuxedo Mask, the gloriously mysterious, dapper as fuck hero who flings a rose as a calling card, and enters the room with a flourish of rose petals. He's that trope, which was pretty iconic in Sailor Moon, and which the Star Guardians are currently lacking. So to claim that he's not needed in a skin line that draws heavily from sailor moon is not right. Ezreal doesn't fit the Tuxedo Mask characterization - Taric does. And Zoe isn't really Aurelion's protector. She's kind of adopted the idea of him as her giant pet, but he's plenty capable of protecting himself. And he's a dragon, not a star. So she's not a literal star guardian since she's not protecting an actual star.
Uhhh I'm sorry? You realize that Ezreal is the one analogous to Tuxedo mask right? The show off, suave pretty boy who flirts with the main hero? I mean, you do know about all the Debonair Ezreal x Star Guardian fanart right? Taric isn't Tuxedo mask, he's Major Armstrong. First off, body shape. Honestly this alone excludes taric. The dude is a musclebound body builder. Mamoru and Ezreal share a Slender body frame. This is also shared by Ekko, Tobias, Talon and Kayn. They're the main characters. They're the love interests. They have the super powered evil sides. Moderately wide chest, visible but not overly pronounced muscles. Pretty boy face. Bishonen. Taking this a step higher you have the buff anime dudes. In League these characters are: Yasuo, Jayce, Xin Zhao, Pantheon, Graves, Varus, Sylas and Rakan. Wider upper body, more pronounced and obvious muscles. They fulfill the Big Guy and Lancer roles. They're usually the Slender's best friend who's probably more experience both in battle and in romance. They're often a mentor figure. Masculine face, square jaw. Handsome and rugged. Then you have Tarics class. As I like to call them, the Armstrongs, for obvious reasons. Taric, Braum, Garen and Darius. These guys are ripped. Their bodies are simply unbelievably muscular without constant exercise. They're side characters. They occasionally pop up as the muscle in a dangerous situations and tank hundreds of hits but are never the one to defeat the villain. Now which of these characters come in Sentai? Slender and Buff. The whole point of Sentai is the '[teenagers with attitude](https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RecruitTeenagersWithAttitude)' trope. You can't just throw every good looking dude in there. Especially a character who is very blatantly a late 20's adult. You have to stop and seriously consider the character's body type, their personality, their facial structure and more. Braum, Taric, Darius and Garen type characters would never star in a non parody. They're too old looking, and don't have the proper jawline, the proper body shape or the proper personalities. Simply put they don't fit the required sentai anime appearances as anything other than a minor side character. This means the only role Taric could fulfill is that of a veteran guardian. But since Ezreal is the first boy, _Taric doesn't fit_. Fabio doesn't compare to Tuxedo Mask. And also, no, if you read their lores you'd know that Zoe often protects Sol from the other aspects particularly Pantheon who's the most brutal.
: She isn't isolated though because of her work with the Illuminators.
She's isolated into high society and as a mage. Being part of a social group or humanitarian group doesn't automatically unisolate you, that's not how that works.
: She also receives the best education and has been [helping run her family estates](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/champion/lux/) since she was a young child.
Maturity is not the same as wisdom and knowledge. Plenty of intelligent people can be emotionally immature. Her isolated nature would actually exacerbate it.
: She's not a kid, [she's 19](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/AsE2ETod-spoilers-lux-issue-nr-1-feedback-discussion-and-questions?comment=0010).

tbh ive tried and tried but i can't even make a good concept for that. I'm wandering how it'd look tbh.
: I was waiting for someone to do a post like this one! I've been trying to predict the future star guardians too. Here are my predictions: {{champion:44}} - Taric's last skin was the pool party one 3 years ago. The Star Guardian skins have a "cute" theme, and among the boys who could fit the theme well is Taric. Im speculating that he could be kind of like the "boss" of the star guardians. {{champion:498}} {{champion:497}} - Even though these two got skins not too long ago we know that team skins don't count, and their last non-esports skins were the sweetheart ones a year and a half ago. They're popular, can fit the "cute" theme and their abilities would look good with sparkly effects. Almost a safe bet. {{champion:142}} - I don't think this needs much explanation. Her last skin was almost a year ago and she just fits the theme too well. Im not sure on this one but I wouldn't be surprised by it. {{champion:518}} - Ok, hear me out on this one. She fits the theme, and even though she was released not too long ago, we know that popular new champs get their second skin fast (hi, Pyke) also, we know for sure that there's a skin for her in development since they explained that Winter Wonder Neeko would go to the legacy vault next christmas but she would get a skin before that. Since the Star Guardian skins usually come with cinematics, lore and all that stuff, they probably pick the champions very early so if they already knew she was getting a skin for sure maybe its cause she's part of the future star guardians. {{champion:10}} {{champion:25}} - I wouldn't call them "cute" per se, but just like Syndra, they could be cute if they decided to make them. Morgana's last skin was almost 3 years ago and Kayle's was almost 2 years ago and since they worked on them recently I wouldn't be surprised if they were working on a skin for them and I think it could perfectly be star guardian skins. {{champion:163}} - Honestly this is more something I hope than a prediction. This lady has a lot of potential for cool skins yet all she got since release was an esports skin that doesn't even count. I get she's not the most popular champ, but still. Let Taliyah be a Star Guardian! {{champion:92}} - So yeah... I fear she might be chosen for the skin line. Just like they did with arcade, they'll have to pick one of the super popular champs for star guardian to get money, and her last skin was a year ago... still, I hope she gets the PROJECT one and not this one. {{champion:133}} - People constantly forget she exists but her last skin was 2 years and a half ago, and even though she's not very popular I think she would look good on star guardian, there are a lot of cool concepts. {{champion:1}} - She clearly fits the theme and everything and her last skin was almost 2 years ago so yeah. Not too excited about this but it could be.
Taric isn't cute... he's fabio. Ezreal fits because anime. Ekko would also fit because anime. It's pretty obvious they'd only go for bishonen characters if there's anymore males and Taric isn't bishonen. He's also much older and looks much older than other guardian characters. He can't be a boss because Ezreal is the first male guardian so it's literally not possible. Furthermore they don't have a boss, they have First Star.
: Err. Your "best bets" are somewhat questionable. Taliyah is the most probable of that list, and _possibly_ Sona, but I'd be really hard pressed to assume Annie, Zoe, and Kayle are going to be thrown into the skin line. They seem like a bit of a stretch to me, especially considering that the line tends to have a lore focus on girls who can get away with being high school age in appearance, with the Yordles fulfilling that youthful, but secretly alien position. Annie and Zoe would be a bit out of place with that, and Kayle doesn't really fit the thematic for me. I think Taric is a really high bet at this point. His last skin was years ago, and he's been interestingly left out of some recent skin lines that seem like a shoe in for him. As for the rest of your "possibles," I don't think any of them necessarily work. Ashe is ok, but meh, and Xayah and Rakan are hard NOs for this skin line to me. Neeko also wouldn't particularly fit this skin line, and Urgot is a FUCKING HARD NO. Urgot SHOULD NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER be in the actual Star Guardian skin line FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER. He can get a joke skin next April Fool's that's like bad cosplay of the line or whatever, but he will absolutely ruin the skin line if they put him in there for the point of a meme. That said, if they do finally do villains for the Star Guardians, Urgot would make a great villain, as would Annie, as the demonic child with a savage pet is very anime for villains. And Lissandra, of course, would have to be the Queen Beryl of the universe.
Zoe would fit perfectly. She acts as ASol's protector. She is the only literal star guardian in the game. Furthermore the theme is magical teenagers. Zoe is a young teenager. Zoe is magical. How does she not fit? Taric could possibly fit, but not as a new star Guardian. His design would only lead towards him being a mentor like Syndra and Janna. But Ezreal is the first male guardian. Which means there's nowhere for someone like Taric to go. Ezreal is allowed in because he's very blatantly an anime character. Taric is _literally_ Fabio. If he is ever added it will be after several other boys get added and they're out of characters.

Well there are different things they could be strong in then just the elemental arts. Take Azula and Zuko from Avatar, for example.
