Leave me a comment and a vote :)
DONT DOWN VOTE BEFORE YOU TRY IT >:(
I would have to admit, that Jax has never quite been my main champ on LoL, infact, I never really jungle because I have always hated jungling, however, Jax has been the one champ that I have success jungling with because of his simplicity and great ganking protencials and now I main him in the JUNGLE.
I am not the best at league, you wouldn't be either if you are looking at my guide :P I am just making this guide because I feel like I am good enough to help other people at playing Jax.
BTW - Jax is a VERY FUN champion to play !!!

-Copies Master Yi's mask, ewwww >:O
|I run this most of the time because it is more RELIABLE than Flash in my opinion, it also provides better chasing ability on fast champions such as Singed and Garen.|
|This is a must have with every junglers ! It increases jungle clear time and lets you secure objectives such as Dragon and Baron , it also allows you to steal the opponent's buffs , dragon or even Baron !|
OTHERS YOU CAN HAVE
|You can replace Ghost with this, if you prefer :)|
|You can replace Ghost with this too, basically Leap Strike in, activate Counter Strike and then Exhaust them to secure the stun.|
|You can also use this, oh wait, who the f*ck uses this any way? Most useless summoner spell in the game. If you are going to be dying enough to use this, you probably suck anyway xD'|
For masteries I feel21-9-0 is the best way to go. Since Jax is a offtank damage dealer, you will need to be taking the offensive masteris. Jax deals both AP and AD damage, therefore you need to be taking Weapon Expertise and Arcane Knowledge to maximise your damage output.
Since I am jungling, I will be taking Summoner's Resolve to get the extra 10g every time I use Smite, this will be around 300 extra gold per game, it doesn't seem to be too much but you are only sacrificing 2 MR.
I also take Bladed Armor to increase jungle clearing speed, it is basically a mini Thornmail ^^
Greater Mark of Armor Penetration
Greater Mark of Attack Speed
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Speed
|This rune is a must on Jax for early game armor shredding, since ( about ) 70 % of Jax's damage comes from AD. These runes will make Jax's ganks much more deadly, most champs will run ARMOR runes so having a bit of armor pen is always nice.|
|Some MR to tank the AP mid's burst in late game, since you won't be in lane with them, there is no point in getting FLAT MR.|
|These runes help with clearing the jungle faster, which means faster jungle clear and more ganks. Also a bit more pushing power on turrets and split pushing etc.|
|MORE ATTACK SPEED !! :D
I put a point in Counter Strike(e) at evel 1 because it reduces the damage you take from the jungle camps, also it does AoE damagewhich ]speeds up your jungle time.
At level 2 I get (Q) to do some level 2 ganks, Counter Strike + Leap Strike = guaranteed or even a kill.
Then I get Empower(W) at level 3 and max it first because it does the most damage.
I leave Counter Strike at level 1because the stun duration does not increase, so there are no point in upgrading this spell.
Ofc I take Grandmaster's Might(R) when ever possible.
CHOOSING YOUR BOOTS
It is very important to choose the right boots, as you will be walking in them ALL GAME. It depends on the enemy team comp, if they have lots of AD damage champs, take Ninja Tabi, if they either have lots of CC or lots of AP damage champs, take Mercury's Treads
Trinity Force is one of Jax's core items. It gives you a 150% of your base damage as bonus damage ON HIT after casting a spell. This is perfect for Jax because he has a very spammable kit, with his W being on a 3 second cooldown it means that you'll proc the trinity force's passive every 3 seconds. TONS OF DAMAGE ! :D
Trinity Force purchase sequence; Phage, Zeal and then leaving the Sheen till last
EXPLAINING SEQUENCE REASON
Phage first because getting health early game is very strong, and the extra AD is nice too. The slow chance is very good for securing kills, the 25% chance of slowing is actually much higher, as when Jax goes in for a gank he stuns first, letting him hit the opponent a few times before they can move, therefore increasing the chance of procing the passive.
Zeal second because of the mobilty it gives, this allows you to land your stun easier and will guarantee a Flash or even a kill. The extra attack speed stacks well with Jax's passive too.
Sheen is last on the list because the other two are a lot more important, the health, AD and attack speed is simply better than what the Sheen offers, it is still a nice item though.
I buy the Bilgewater Cutlass after the phage to sustain my self easily, the lifestealand the active slow makes your ganks really deadly,this means that even when your phage fails to slow you will still have a 100% chance slow.. Then I finish the rest of the Trinity Force off and then build the Blade of the Ruined King
Blade of the Ruined King is a must have for Jax in S3, the 5% damage at the target's current health goes really well with Jax's built in attack speed, the blade also gives Jax additional attack speed , ad and lifesteal, giving Jax immense sustain in fights. Also do not forget the active !!! The movement speed steal combined with the rest of Jax's kit will make Jax stick to his target like glue, ok, super glue. ( Brand can probably heat the glue off, but you get my point )
Welcome to the League of Warmog's Armor, basically every off tank should have one of these because stacking health is just sooooo strong right now. The health regen is also very nice. This gives Jax the much needed survivability.
This item is very good for Jax, it gives armor which stacks well with Jax's passive making him very tanky and it also gives AD depending on your health, which is why this item goes soooo well with Warmog's Armor !
This is such a strong item, it gives CDR, Health and also an armour shredding passive, perfect for heavy armor teams, you will probably be getting this in most games because armor is easier to stack than MR.
Jungle Route ! REALLY OLD UPDATING SOON :O ( I AM LAZY I KNOW !!!! :c )
So, this is the jungle section, I have one main jungle path for Jax and it works great.
If you spawn on the blue side ( the best side ! ) :
( 1 ) Start wolves, ask your mid lane and top lane to help out, it doesn't matter if they get the smaller wolves, just make sure you get the big one in the middle.
( 2 ) Now get the blue as Jax requires mana and the CDR is nice on him, always ask for a smiteless to give you a boost to your jungle.
( 3 ) Now you have quite a few options:
1 ) If you have received a smiteless you can go quickly go counter jungle the enemy's red buff
2 ) If you did not receive a smiteless you can go give top or mid a quick level 2 gank. ( this is what I do most of the time )
3 ) Go do your own red
( 4 ) After you have got your red/ countered their red/ ganked, go do the wraiths and look for more gank opportunities, you should be at about 75% health so you are able to gank.
If you spawn on the red side ( the worst side D: ) :
You do pretty much the same, just that instead of a quick gank for top, you can give a quick gank to bot. ^_^
Mini Tactics Sections
There are a few fun tricks you can do with Jax
1) Jax's Q Leap Strike can be used on allies and wards, this means that if you place your wriggle's lattern down on the other side of the wall you can Q to it, basically a free Flash !!
2) When clearing camps make sure you leave Counter Strike on for as long as possible, this is because it will do more damage depending on the amount of attacks you've dodged, also you will take less damage from the camps.
3) I am sure I have mentioned already, but incase you didn't see it, Jax's W Empower is an auto attack resetter, this means that after you auto attack, use W, then your next auto attack will happen straight away. Timing this correctly will maximise your damage output.
4) When ganking, you can wait till the enemy uses Flash first before Leap Strikeing to them, this will mean the opponent has wasted Flash and has took damage too. ( This will not always work as some players don't panic, or if they are playing champs with a lot mobility such as Ahri and Lee Sin )
Woah, you have actually reached the end of this ugly guide? ^^
Over all Jax is a very strong jungler, he is not the easiest to master, but with enough practice you can surely carry your team.
