First you get Dorans sheild. You get dorans to get hp regen in lane and some Hp Stay in lane long enough to get Atleast Ninja Tabi or get boots of speed if u have to go back with only 350-550. You can get Merc treads but i rarely get it because in my opinion the dodge is so useful. Then Get Guinsoo Rageblade. Start off with blasting wand unless u can get the full item right away. Then after that u get hextech gunblade. Start with Hextech revolver then get bilgewauter cuirass and start that item with the pickaxe. Then After that u get trinity starting with sheen,phage then Zeal. Or before getting trinity u can get a defensive item like thornmail or banshees or something like that depending on their team. After this u can get whatever u want but i usually go with another hextech gunblade.

Summoner Spells

Almost all the time get Exhaust and ignite so once u jump then u can DESTROY and so they cant get away. Also Ghost is pretty good on jax for chasing and running away and flash is ok on him. Do not get calirovoyance/fortify this is a tanks job or a support. You can also get cleanse so u can survive a battle and not get stunned for the whole time (since u dont have mercs) or atleast u shouldnt.
