Introduction

Well I'm Pief and this is my build for Jax, i'm bad at writing long introductions and such so i keep it brief. This build is what i use in 3v3 and not for RANKED it may seem like a bad set up to most people but it works for me.


Guide Top

Runes

I choose these runes because Jax is most efficient(i may spell wrong) when he uses both AP and attack power, so the runes matches up, however i went with a little more AP as the hextech gunblade gives more attack power than AP.


Guide Top

Masteries

This mastery set up i think works best, the deff masteries benefits jax alot as nimbleness is awesome for him and gives you a bit more dodge wich allowes your counter strike to proc more freqently and give you lots of stun.

Items

So i went with berserkers greaves for the attack speed, Hextech gunblades proved attack power and AP and also gives you lots of lifesteal and spell vamp wich will give you enough survivability in my opinion, i threw in a phantom dancer for a bit extra attack speed(wich you get alot with Jax's ulti aswell).

Skill Sequence

This skill setup i won't go into much detail, it is what i prefere to start with as Leap strike provides alot of damage with the runes you have allready on lvl 1, empower is great to proc before using leapstrike when you get it at lvl 2 as it increases the dmg your leap strike does.
And then it's time for counter strike, and in my opinion its the main ability for Jax as it does damage and stuns your enemies,maybe not last long but with your ulti(wich you get at lvl 6) the small stun is enough to take down the enemy health greatly.

Summoner Spells

Ignite is great to use when people flee after you taken down their health, and flash well, lets face it, everyone uses flash as a mean of escape or tower diving(wich i do alot mind you.)


Guide Top

Team Work

I find Jax efficient together with 1 melee and 1 ranged as his melee himself, do keep in mind this is for 3v3.


Guide Top

Summary

Well thats all i have to say may edit it in the future , i wrote this while being exhausted but i been wanting to do it for a long time so i just did it now, This build might or might not please many but this is just my build of Jax and as such it is my opinion i've gone after.
As said in introduction, this is a 3v3 build but it does work great in 5v5 aswell but its a bit harder as they can take you down easier, but in 3v3 i often find myself in 3v1 and i often come out of it with little health but taken all 3 due the high lifesteal and spell vamp.


I hope people will like this build but as said, i did this as a fun thing and i'm well pleased with how the build works for me.
