How to play Jinx! [S3]
Not Updated For Current Season
Hello! My name is TJOOMBA im an AD carry diamond player(season 3). This is my 1st guide and i chosed to do one on Jinx because i think she is alot of fun to play and probadly one of the best AD carrys atm. I feel like she is a bit underestimated. Anyway enjoy.

Now lets get to it!
Those runes are the standard runes for ad carry the only thing u can do different is to take Scaling Mrpen instead of flat. I choose to take flat beacuse i use them most. And i take flat ad instead of arm pen just because it's much better early game.
These masteries really benefit on Jinx, they are almost like any other ad c page
In offensive tree i chose Destruction instead of 3/3 in havoc wich allows me to take a turret much faster with minigun atk speed and 5% more dmg on turret though i lose 0.77% damage output nothing i notice. I take Summoner's Resolve in defensive tree because barrier shield 20 more and if i take cleanse it increases the duration with 1 second that can be the difference between life and death. I also choose to nly take 6 points and i choose to take 3/4 in durability instead of 4/4 so i can get 2/3 in hardiness wich increases my early trades.
In the utility tree i get 3/3 in meditaion because Jinx got some mana problems.
Start of with a Dorans blade. Then try build as fast as you can into Bloodthirster but don't forget to buy boots! Then you go for stattik shiv, lw and infinity edge, there you go. Thats you core build then you buy whatevers necessary.
The thing with Jinx is you wanna benefit with your passive so you wanna be able to burst some one fast. Some might say that infinity edge is better for bursting fine withh AAs yes, but Jinx W and R has really good scalings and deals massive damage thats why i get bt 1st. I can go for Infiniy edge 1st but only if im winning huge.
Why do i take stattik shiv instead of phantom dancer? Thats simple you want the burst and the extra damage from stattik shiv is really gonna help you out with that.
Why do i get Bloodthrister instead of Blade Of The Ruined King if i want burst? Again a full stacked bt gives you more burst with ur W+R than botrk.
Of course you take a point in your ultimate whenever you can! (6,11,16)
Your maxing Q instead of W because of with q you get alot of atk speed with you minigun wich makes it easier to farm under turret kill turrets and ur 1v1 potenitonal is huge with the atk speed of minigun.
You max W second instead of E because rank 5 w slows 70% and deals alot of dmg wich is huge for sieging.
I choose to take flash because it can secure kills and can get you out of scary possitions and help you survive. There is no other spell better than flash.
Second spell i take barrier simple cuse it's better than heal. Barrier shields for 455 dmg in lvl 18 (475 if u take summoner's resolve) and heal heals you for 355 wich is a big difference.
Sometimes there's smarter to pick cleanse for example they got Elise jungle and Taric support and Ashe ad c. You must cleanse those stuffs. I use barrier more often though.
Pros / Cons
*Fun to play
*Really good at sieging.
*Got insane atk speed steriod.
*Can snipe over whole map.
*Once you get a kill in a fight ur unstoppable.
*Good duelling potentional.
*Nice crowd control.
*Can be very lane dominate.
*Long range with SWITCHEROO!
*Good wave clear with Q
*High mana cost if spamming Zaps and using Q to clear waves.
*No escape ability.
*Skill shot oriented.
*Takes some games to learn, She aint a right clicker.
* No boobs :D
When playing as Jinx in a teamfight you should allways make sure your behind the frontline so you dont get caught off guard. Then just poke with long range Q and W and when u get a kill in the fight jut kite/chase them down and get pentakill.
Jinx is a really strong but high skill capped ad carry. But after some practice she can carry you to diamond!:d Have fun trying out my build. And for those that need to know i really am diamond.
