|Imperial Lux, probably one of my favorite splash arts ever.|
It looks like the Lady of Luminosity is going to be recieving some buffs. Check out what Jatt had to say about Lux and where she could use some love :
Short answer: she's really hard to play, and playing her optimally requires alot of kiting and patience (something most players lack)Jatt, Associate Game Analyst, via the official forums.
Long answer: Lux relies on landing her entire damage combo in order to be effective, unfortunately her Q comes with a very high mana cost and a high cooldown. If you want to become aggressive in lane, you are forced to shoot Q after Q, which will deplete your mana pool quickly assuming you are using your E to clear the creeps (which most good Lux's do)
Pros: Full 3 spell combo (Q into E(explode) R is devastating on single targets and in team fights. W is extremely potent with only 1 point at shielding multiple people in team fights. Great farming capability with E and R. Exceptional kiting
Cons: High mana costs, unreliable, hard to pull off spell combos, extremely unforgiving when missing spells.
Good news everyone! Lux is getting mana cost reductions next patch. Making it easier for Lux to take more chances in lane, and play more aggressive. We like that Lux is a hard to play mage with high rewards (seriously, practice Q - E- R combo), so we're trying to make her less punishing.
As some the more keen eyed summoners have noticed, there seems to be a bug with Pulsefire Ezreal and the range on his Q. If you check out the video below, it seems that the Q of Pulsefire Ezreal has a slightly longer range than the normal Ezreal Q.
Riot is aware of this, as Greeves posted an announcement about it earlier, which said " As you know we've always taken a firm stance against the idea of selling power in any way, and though the effects of the Pulsefire skin are arguably minor, we are going to be fixing them as soon as possible. Our goal is to have an awesome Ezreal skin for you guys to use with the exact same gameplay functions as all the others." Simliarly, RiotMontag assured us that "We have Top Men working on this. Going to figure out what's up. We have reports of this happening on other skillshots as well, so we're going to look at those, too"
Speaking of Ezreal, Riot also put out a champion spotlight for him, highlighting his abilities, playstyles, and builds! Check it out if you might be wondering how to make the best of your new skin purchase.
Edit: Turns out its just a bug with Ezreal's Q and it gaining additional range after leveling up.
Further investigation on this revealed that this wasn't Pulsefire Ezreal specific but is a general Ezreal bug that has to do with leveling his Q. We'll be fixing it in an upcoming patch. We take the quality of our skins and content in general quite seriously (hence my spending my Saturday on it!) and definitely wanted to make sure we aren't selling power.- Geeves, Game Designer, via the official forums.
