Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to the guide about Jayce, an Ad melee/range. Jayce is a perfect champion for people who like to jungle, solo or just do a heap of damage. This guide will consist of the many needed things that will help you become a wonderful Jayce.
For runes, you would build straight ad, as Jayce has low starting AD, this bonus AD is much needed!
Full runes consist of;
Marks- Tier 3 (Greater Mark of Strength) (+0.95 AD) x9
Seals- Tier 3 (Greater Seal of Strength) (+0.43 AD) x9
Glyphs- Tier 3 (Greater Glyph of Strength) (+0.28 AD) x9
Quintessences- Tier 3 (Greater Quintessence of Strength) (+2.25 AD) x3
This all adds up to be a total of 22 bonus AD
With Dorans Blade as your first item, you would have 85 AD.
For masteries I take 21/9/0
Taking all AD Enhancements in offense.
In defense, I take;
Full Magic Resist
+6 Health per level
This gives Jayce the much needed early game bonus of health and survivability.
I open up with 1 Dorans Blade, when enough gold is obtained, I move into my second Dorans Blade.
I then go straight into boots of speed, then build into either Mercury Treads or Ninja Tabi (I almost always build Mercury Treads if there is even one AP user). I then go straight into Phage as it gives bonus health and attack. Once I have roughly 1900g, I buy both a Sheen and Vampiric Scepter, as this gives the bonus basic damage when changing from both Hammer and Cannon along with the lifesteal. I build into a Trinity Force, with this being one of my main sources of damage. Once the Trinity Force is done, I move straight into a Phantom Dancer, as the movement speed and attack speed greatly help. I buy a B.F Sword and build into a Bloodthirster. Once This is completed, I move into more damage, buying Infinity Edge and then a Black Cleaver. Once the build is complete, I buy all potions, (Ad/Ap/Health/etc)
This build is more of a straight out damage dealer.
When laning in 3v3's or 5v5's, I always take a solo lane, as farming for items is much easier. I tend to harass champions in ranged mode, switching to melee when I feel like adding that extra amount of damage before ending it. In range mode, I poke at the champion, lowering there health until they start to back. I get into range and fire my Acceleration gate (e) then I fire off my shock blast (q). If this hasn't finished them off, I chase while changing into melee for the speed. I jump on them with "To the Skies" (q) then land a "Thundering Blow" (e). This should do the trick into ending most fights.
While wanting to start into a fight, I always go into range and use my e and fire my q through it, making sure it hits the champing. I change into melee and q the champing, (while using q, make sure you use w for the bonus AOE damage) then landing a solid e. I continue to basic attack while changing into ranged for the bonus basic damage and range.
For the people who are new to Jayce, I suggest using Heal and Flash. As this makes it easier to survive and escape quickly.
For the players who feel more confident, I suggest either Ignite and Flash or Exhaust and Flash.
Overall Jayce is a fun champion to play, dealing a heap of damage no matter who you are against.
