LUNOX’ SKILLS EXPLANATION

PASSIVE

DREAMLAND TWIST

 

Lunox has a bar under her MP bar, this bar is divided into 2 segments, Light and Dark. Light: Increase Lunox’ Magic RES, Dark: Increase Lunox’ Magic PEN. To increase her Light: Use 1st skill, Dark: Use 2nd skill.

 

1ST SKILL (UPGRADE CONNECTED WITH 2ND SKILL)

STARLIGHT PULSE

{Increase Light Passive} Lunox will generate a light which will hit enemy in the area, like Rafaela’s first skill. She also recovers HP from this skill, if she hits an enemy hero, HP recovered will be higher than hitting minion. Combining this with Ice Queen’s Wand will slow down enemies and help you and your teammate.  

 

2ND SKILL (UPGRADE CONNECTED WITH 1ST SKILL)

CHAOS ASSAULT

 

{Increase Dark Passive} Lunox targets and slows an enemy by shooting a dark ball forward. If the enemy has a “Chaos Mark”, then this skill's CD immediately refreshes. When attacking enemy heroes, this skill deals an additional 3% of their total HP in Magic Damage, which makes this Lunox’ main damaging skill. Combining this with Divine Glaive / Concentrated Energy will increase the damage.

3RD SKILL

COSMIC FISSION

Lunox uses a fusion of energy to deal Magic Damage in a rectangular area that you set up, causes a slow effect to enemies in area. This is good for escaping or to slow down enemies so they can’t run away. Combine with Ice Queen Wand for additional slow.

 

ULTIMATE SKILL

ORDER

 

If her passive is fully stacked at the Light part, her ultimate will become “Order”. When she uses the power of order, she turns into a form of light which will become invulnerable, and deals continuous damage.

CHAOS

 

If her passive is fully stacked at the Dark part, her ultimate will become “Chaos”. When she uses the power of chaos, she dashes forward and deals damage to enemies near her, then for the next 4 seconds, her 2nd skill will have no cooldown and you can continuously hit enemies.

LUNOX’ ITEM SET

Lunox relies at Magic PEN and any CD Reduction will be converted to either Magic PEN or Magic RES. She doesn’t have to build that strong on CD Reduction since her CD is short already, so it’s better to build around Magic PEN.

 Build movement items first to give Lunox high mobility from the start. 

Arcane Boots is great for adding Magic PEN to ensure she takes down enemies faster.

 Concentrated Energy adds Spell Vamp and Magic Power. This item will add Spell Vamp so her skill would deal extra damage and also this amplifies her 1st skill so she would heal more.

Ice Queen Wand adds Spell Vamp and Magic Power. This will slow enemies after getting hit by Lunox’ skill, so her 1st skill will have a slow effect and also her 2nd and 3rd skill deals additional slow.

 Holy Crystal adds more Magic Power and also deals extra magical damage after skill. Combine this with Chaos + Chaos Assault for high magical damage.

 

Divine Glaive adds Magic PEN which adds more magic penetration to Lunox’ passive, this item also adds magic power, perfect for facing tanks. Can also be used to kill low hp enemies faster.

 

Blood Wings adds high Magic Power points and a lot of HP. Its unique is also great for Lunox since she has a low HP, every magic power earned will turn into HP. A must have item for mages.

 

LUNOX’ EMBLEM BUILD

TALENT TREE

FLOW

 

Adds magic power. Since Lunox does not benefit from CD Reduction, it’s better if you use this talent rather than the CD Reduction talent.

OBSERVATION

 

Adds magic PEN. Since Lunox has a strong side of accumulating magic PEN, it’s good if you use this talent since it will give Lunox extra magic PEN

 

 

.

IMPURE RAGE

 

Deals magic damage 3% from enemy’s full HP, when you hit enemy hero you’ll regain MP. Good for early game and you can hold on from buying MP regen items.
