Hello,
This is my first guide (ever) and will be a very short one.
I've been playing Jax for long ... around 100 games with him.
I tried almost every build that was posted and wasn't happy with anyone's, so i tried to build something different and this is what i play now. I play this build in normal games so i dont know how much it works in ranked but this makes you less dependant on your team.

Spells

Ghost- one of the best summoner spells on jax, it vastly improves your chasing ability and gives you escape which jax lacks.

Exhaust/Ignite - some people want finishers, some want chasing. I choose exhaust because again, it gives you survivability at low levels until you are able to solo 1v3. Ignite is good too but i dont prefer it.

Abilities


Leap strike- your main chasing and bumping ability, no need to describe more.

Empower- your bread and butter in this build, combined with leap strike deals loads of dmg to those pesky casters that want to kill you and at last level, takes 1/4 of Yi's health on lvl 18.

Counter strike- makes you huge threats in teamfights and improves survivability which is esential, it isnt recommended to max this because it doesnt scale well.

Item build justification

With this item build, i am trying to do an equillibrium between hp and dmg, when you have phantom dancer, no one will kill you. I focus on early survivability and find this build a lot easier to farm out, which is very difficult on other builds.

This is all, thanks for your time,
feel free to copy and improve this build and send me your ideas.
