Lex is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Outer Tribunal is made up of merciless, oathbound judges, none more dedicated than Lex. He and his partner, Androxus, traveled the fringes of the Realm together, tracking down infamous criminals and battling all manner of horrors on behalf of the Magistrate. After encountering a sinister goddess, though, Androxus abandoned his duties and quickly rose to the top of the most wanted list.

Lex, unable to turn his back on the law or the Magistrate, vowed to one day take his former partner in, dead or alive.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Lex is a flank champion who specializes in close range duels. He relies on good use of his mobility to outplay his opponents. His skill In Pursuit is his tool to kill elusive targets who are on low health, and Retribution grants vision on a random target and bonus credits for killing them based on their current kill streak. Combat Slide allows Lex to quickly re-position himself during fights and to disengage. His ultimate, The Law, instant kills targets within the area of effect who are under a health threshold, which makes it a great tool for cleaning up team fights. However, Lex lacks vertical mobility, deals low damage from afar and relies on having clear line of sight of his targets to deal any damage.
