Introduction ♥

Welcome, fellow Summoner!

Hi guys. My name is Trixi. I am currently a Bronze 1 player, since i dropped out of silver, for not playing for a long period of time (i was on vacation for a month , lol) and in this guide, i am going to teach you the basics of Jayce, and advanced tactics, to secure dominance, and control overall in the progressing game. ♥

Jayce excels good, at holding control in lane, and being ready for every situation he gets in, AND he is one of the champion with the strongest poke in the game, since he can go to ranged form, and just keep basic attacking the enemy until they are low enough, to make him go all in, and kill the victim. Jayce is an AD Bruiser, who primarily should be used, as a top laner, but he can be used in the mid lane etc. since he shines everywhere! ♥

Jayce's Q ( Shock Blast), E ( Acceleration Gate) combo is ridiculously strong early, and late, which makes him a strong top laner, in every parts of the game, he uses mana, but you have to be careful with the mana usage, since you gonna switch stances and use multiple abilities simultaneously. His E ( Acceleration Gate) is basically a free movement speed buff for your team, in some occasions. Jayce is surprisingly good, against the though top champions like Garen.

These changes has changed the way you play Jayce alot. They have been nerfing his Thundering Blow because you could use too often in the early parts of the game, and the % damage was too crazy, but i like the fact that they buffed his To The Skies! because that spell was a bit useless, you used it only for the slow, you couldn't feel the damage, it was basically like just used for the slow, nothing else, it is nice for farming i must say though.

The speed on the accelerated Shock Blast has been increased on the initial speed, but it decays over time, so you see it coming from a large distance with incredible speed, but then it decays, and gives the enemy a bigger change of dodging it, and the range of the AoE has also been decreased..

The mana cost on Acceleration Gate has been reduced very much. Now it cost 20 mana instead of 50, and i really like that, because sometimes when you were totally out of mana, and were escaping from an enemy, you didn't have enough mana for Acceleration Gate, and now you can use it more often, hopefully.

Runes ♥

For an ordinary Jayce i like to go 9x Greater Mark of Attack Damage because it gives me overall damage, and a very strong early-game. These also helps me last hit alot better. Now i go for 9x Greater Seal of Armor which gives me a huge amount of armor, which helps me in the early part of the game, to minimize the enemies damage a bit. For the glyphs i go 9x Greater Glyph of Magic Resist, which helps me against ability power damage, in case you want to go Jayce mid, and last but not least i go for 3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage for the overall damage. :) ♥

Items ♥

Starter Items ♥

This is the most typical starter items for a Jayce, the Faerie Charm gives you mana regen, since Jayce is very mana hungry in the beginning of the game, so this definitely helps on it. The Sight Wards are for vision, to make sure you don't get an ugly surprise from the enemy jungler, and last but not least the Health Potions are for the sustain in lane. ♥

This build can be used, if you come again an heavy attack damage opponent. The Cloth Armor minimizes the opponents damage, this helps alot in the early parts of the game, and can give you a huge advantage in the lane, just the fact that the enemy is dealing less damage than you. The health potions are for the sustain, and you need 5x of them. ♥

This build can be used, if you are going for an early first blood. The elixir will give you some extra health, and a bunch of damage, and that little boost, can mean a huge thing and can secure you a first blood. The Elixir of Fortitude is really an amazing item, but you have some limited choices now, since its price got higher, because back in the days it was even better combined with other items in the early parts ♥

Mid-Game Items ♥

Manamune is a MUST when playing Jayce, because of its passive, and it's damage, it's cheap, good and excels perfectly on Jayce. The The Black Cleaver is a really strong item, since it gives you health, damage, AND armor pen. I really like the Manamune especially for its super awesome passive, it gains damage, based on your maximum mana, so this combined with other mana items, can be seriously heroic.

Late-game Items ♥

The Bloodthirster is a really nice item, it gives you a nice amount of damage - especially when fully stacked - and a very good amount of lifesteal.
