Mages (otherwise known as AP carries) are the jacks-off-all-trades. Just as their class name implies, mages control the battlefield through potent spells and game-changing abilities. AP carries can overwhelm their opponents with magic damage from the other side of the fight, but they usually find themselves at a loss when their enemies close the distance. Much like AD carries, they can make great use of offensive items, but they also get a lot of power from levels and experience. Examples of this champion class are Lux, Syndra, Vel’Koz.
