Mobile Legends Lunox Guide - How to burst every hero even tanks

Lunox is known as a tank killer, Karrie's mage counterpart. She can melt down the tankiest tanks like an Enraged Minotaur, Grock and Khufra, relatively quicker than most heroes. Here's a guide on how to use her effectively.



Passive: Dreamland Twist

Lunox has lost all sense of time and reality and as a result, she does not benefit from Cooldown Reduction. However, any Cooldown Reduction will have different effects depending on her current Power.

Power of Order: Lunox will gain 2 Physical Defense and Magical Defense for every 1% Cooldown Reduction.

Power of Chaos: Lunox will gain 1.5% Magic Penetration for every 1% Cooldown Reduction.

Skill 1: Starlight Pulse

Lunox summons a rain of starlight upon nearby enemies, dealing 200 / 230 / 260 / 290 / 320 / 350 (+110% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and restoring 60 / 66 / 72 / 78 / 84 / 90 (+20% Magic Power) points of HP for every enemy hit.

If any enemy hero is hit, the heal will be doubled to 120 / 132 / 144 / 156 / 168 / 180 (+40% Total Magic Power).

Gains 1 Stack of Power of Order after use. This skill is learned with Chaos Assault and shares its CD.

Skill 2: Chaos Assault

Lunox unleashes chaos energy to a single enemy, dealing 200 / 220 / 240 / 260 / 280 / 300 (+130% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage and slowing enemies by 10% for 1 second. If an enemy hero is hit, Lunox deals an additional 1.5% / 2% / 2.5% / 3% / 3.5% Max HP Magic Damage.

Skill 3: Cosmic Fission

Lunox uses the Power of Order and Chaos to deal 300 / 340 / 380 / 420 / 460 / 500 (+150% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage to targets along the way and slowing them by 40% for 2 seconds.

Ultimate Skill Power of Order: Brilliance

Lunox became invulnerable and dealing 100 / 120 / 140 (+50% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage every 0.5 second to nearby enemies for 2.5 seconds.

Lunox can deal up to 6 instances of damage for a maximum of 600 / 720 / 840 (+300% Total Magic Power) Magic Damage

During this state, Lunox cannot cast Spells or attack.

Ultimate Skill Power of Chaos: Darkening

Lunox blinks in designated direction and deals 250 / 330 / 450 (+100% Total Magic Power) points of Magic Damage to nearby enemies. For the next 4 seconds, Chaos Assault has no cooldown.



Battle Spell

Flicker is the most viable spell to take for Lunox. She has limited mobility after entering Chaos form and a flicker can be essential to chasing an enemy, or escaping. It will also allow her to dodge slower incoming abilities such as a Chou knockup, or an incoming Gatotkakca ultimate.

Purify is also a viable spell to take for lunox. Only consider this over flicker if enemies have a lot of single target lock-on such as Aurora freeze, Eudora stun, Chou knockups, etc.


Go for Custom Mage Emblem unless you did not level it up. Common Magical Emblem is enough from Warrior to Grandmaster.

Go for Max Movement Speed, Magical lifesteal, and Magic Worship. This will allow Lunox to roam faster, sustain better in lane or versus multiple enemies, and deal greater burst damage to a single target.

The next best option is Common Magic Emblem.

Go for Max Mana Regen, CD Reduction + Magical Lifesteal, and Magic Power Surge. This will allow lunox to sustain both mana and hp better, as well as give her some bonus magic penetration and bonus temporary burst damage.

Item Recommendations
  1. Demon Shoes - Lunox's skills drain a lot of mana. Demon Shoes helps to sustain it.
  2. Clock of Destiny - for HP sustain and mana plus synergy with the Lightning Truncheon item.
  3. Lightning Truncheon - Gives a significant increase of burst damage or poke damage from the item's passive.
  4. Winter Truncheon - Vital in potentially saving your life and allowing you to change back to light form.
  5. Divine Glaive - This is for Magic Penetration.
  6. Holy Crystal - This allows you to continuously deal significantly high damage to squishier targets.


Tips and Tricks

These are some tips to play lunox in high ranks versus other great players where if you aren't careful, they will exploit every single mistake you make. If playing in lower ranks, feel free to play more aggressively.
  1. When roaming around the map, always ensure you have 1 light orb below your hp bar.
  2. Only roam around the map in Chaos form when the enemy team has no significant crowd control abilities.
  3. It will take her at least 4 seconds to revert back to light form from chaos form by casting her light skill twice.
  4. Never use your light ultimate to poke enemies in higher ranks, they will capitalize off this and target you the moment your invulnerability is wearing off.
  5. The chaos ultimate skill and skill 2 are Lunox' main source of damage and the reason why she can kill even tanks very fast.
These are just some recommendations to play Lunox effectively. The item build may change depending if you also need defense items or you really just want to burst enemy heroes super fast.
