: That's a problem with the players, not the champion. People tend to play Lux "support" when they don't want to actually support. She has better base combat stats and higher scaling, meaning if the person playing her knows how to avoid damage at all, she's a better support. Additionally, she has a shield (which was recently significantly buffed), giving her supportive utility Brand and Zyra don't have. Over this season, I have a 52% win rate as Lux support. Recently, my win rate has been close to 60%. That isn't luck. She has utility and the base damage, along with the greater range, that Brand and Zyra lack. Lux support has been stigmatized and labeled trash for so long that people only play her when they don't want to support. Again, that's a problem with the players, not with the champion.

: Don't get me wrong I love playing lux I think she is great but she has major flaws. But it's not just the champion it is the player playing the champion. In my case it is not I just wanted to State that. Yes if you have skill and play smart you can overcome the issues in an character witch I have but I feel to improve the game play you need to improve what you are playing with

: she is a long range burst mage ... she should be squishy. her shield is a bit gimmicky ill give you that... another ability might be better suited the rest of her kit works fine as a burst/zone mage

: i put in caps cuz i thought it be easier for you to read cuz when it wasnt in caps you didnt grasp the context of my comment they buff her damage , they buffed her ult giving it a cd reset then this last patch they just buffed her more for mid lane they know she isnt viable as a support at all and buffed damages to help her in mid Q - Light Binding COOLDOWN 15/14/13/12/11 seconds ⇒ 13/12.5/12/11.5/11 seconds

I already wrote this all out etc

You don't need to get all caps I am here because I want to see what everyone has to say and learn and look at different perspectives I am sorry I stand corrected mrfawknsunshine but we both agree on what we are saying and thank you everyone for commenting

: Lux Support has a win rate 46.20% for Platinum+ players whilst the very best Lux's are earning a win rate of 55.40% with the average rank of these top players being in Diamond IV. LoLalytics ranks Lux at 35 amongst Support champions earning a tier grade of Silver. This ranking takes into account the win rate of Platinum+ players, the pick/ban influence of Lux, the win rate and average rank of the best Lux players. http://current.lolalytics.com/champion/Lux/Support/ SHE RANKS 35TH AT SUPPORT !!!! she isnt a support... she cant protect the adc, she cant stop dives/engages her only form of CC is her Q and if she misses she and the adc are dead her entire kit is damage her shield is sub par at best and cant really target any one with it she cant enhance anything the adc does

Nipsahoy (NA)
: Lux is in a pretty bad state in my opinion. She's fine for bronze/silver pub stomping but once you get to higher ELOs and people are good at dodging skillshots she's pretty easy to beat. She can still be good if she pops off but it happens much less often. She often sacrifices wave clear for harassment and her mana costs are fairly high early on. Her shield is pretty horrible also despite the recent buff.

I don't think so but if they did it did not help much. And I dont want her ultimate to be buffed that's not her problem

Search up lux role and see what comes up
: Lux (please click)
If you look at her profile she is a mage support and no they did not. Her ability cooldowns are long AF and she has no mobility or escape whatsoever. And mana is a huge problem with full AP builds. Her E (most damaging ability) drains it all up and costs more to use than her ult at upgrade level 4. Lux can get two shot by a fed assasin, and once her snare is dodged, she's just done. Like many other champs, she requires skillshots to function.
