1. Introduction.



What is it really about, being an assassin? It is about being able to achieve what one want in shortest time possible. By what one wants it is obvious i mean eliminating all the obstacles that lay on the way to victory

In this guide, i am going to lecture you, my dear reader, how to be a viable assassin. Starting from tower diving, through killing techniques and finishing at successful ganking.

Please have in mind, that i play my assassins in a particular way, which might not suit other people. I bet on utility and survivability. If you want to make a squishy damage dealing machine out of my precious assassins, get out of here as soon as possible. Though this guide may change your point of view on assassins i still don't want any comments concerning the subject of making carries out of them. Thank You.

Akali - the swift assassin!


Soon to come!



Ezreal - the sniper assassin!


Soon to come!


Jax - the fighting assassin!


As of the new patch coming in soon, i decided on rushing the guide for Jax - my personal favorite hero who was underpowered (or rather under-made). So, here it comes.

IMPORTANT:

RECENT CHANGES TO JAX!:
Jax
Equipment Mastery tooltip updated to show health gained from each source dynamically
Leap Strike
Cast time reduced by 20%
Travel speed increased by 20%
Ability power ratio reduced to 0.7 from 0.8
Empower
Now only deals damage to a single target rather than to an area of effect
Now resets Jax autoattack timer when cast
Damage increased to 75/110/145/180/215 from 40/60/80/100/120
Ability power and damage ratios increased to 0.4 from 0.2
Mana cost reduced to 20 from 35
Cooldown increased to 9/8/7/6/5 from 5/5/5/5/5
Tooltip corrected to accurately state it deals magic damage
Fixed bugs where Empower incorrectly did less damage when used at the same time as Leap Strike or each 3rd Relentless Assault strike.
Counter Strike damage increased to 80/110/140/170/200 from 80/100/120/140/160
Relentless Assault

New Active: Grants 20/35/50 + Jax's dodge percent in bonus magic resistance for 5/6.5/8 seconds upon activation. Costs 80 mana. Cooldown of 60/60/60 seconds.


Buff icon now dynamically shows the number of Relentless Assault stacks which Jax is benefitting from
Tooltip correctly indicates that Jax gains up to 10 stacks of Relentless Assault
Recommended items updated

The active ability of Jax ultimate makes it A LOT easier. Why, would you ask? That is because Jax'es weakness were always MAGES. As of that, he needed Banshee's Veil. Now, with his short cooldown ulti, he doesn't need banshee's veil, which can be replaced with another Gunblade or a Guardian angel making it much more easier to play.

GUIDE


Core build:


Ninja Tabi
Phantom Dancer
Hextech Gunblade
Hextech Gunblade


These items grant Jax what in my opinion what he needs the most. That is: dodge, running speed, ability power, damage and LIFE.
Some math:
With full build, items grant us:
4*60*3+75*2*4=12*60+8*75=1320 hp!!!!!! That is an ENORMOUS AMOUNT! No other character can have such high ability power and attack damage with this amount of health!
4*75=300 ability power!
131+4*60=131+240=371 attack damage!
460 movement speed!
46% dodge!
30% critc chance!

Laning:


Even being able to solo-win every champion possible, Jax still have some handicaps. The most problematic one is being on a lane with bad suited enemy champ. The worst possible is Tristana, whose long range doesn't allow you to farm gold. The worse champions to lane against are:
Tristana
Ezreal
Heimerdinger
Kennen
Nidalee
RYZE
Teemo(hate his mushrooms)
Vladimir

To help us do a good job at farming, we need some good lanin partners, the best of course are tank and support champion. We love Taric, Shen, Janna, Amumu and many more.

Shaco - the backstabbing assassin!


Soon to come!



Twisted Fate - the teleporting assassin!


Soon to come!
