Summoner Spells

Ghost is always nice to have to either flee battle when dying or to catch a enemy running away. (If you'd rather use Flash that's good to, makes it easy to turret dive for the kill and Flash to safety.)

Exhaust is simply amazing, it can turn a fight around in seconds. The 70% damage decrease to the enemy along with slowing them to a crawl so they can't flee is very good. *WARNING* Master Yi cannot be slowed with Highlander active, so if he's in a losing battle and running away try to save Exhaust for someone else.

Skill Sequence

Leap Strike is first because you can innitiate a fight or get to a team fight faster, also very good for escaping when targeting a friendly.

Empower is basically your spam attack when in a fight, it comes back fast and does a lot of damage.

Counter Strike is the second most important because of the dodge chance and the AoE stun. It can help you drastically in a fight and it also helps you flee if you need to escape certain death.

Runes

I've chosen Greater Mark of Attack Speed and Greater Glyph of Attack Speed because of Relentless Assault, it does bonus damage every third hit and why not get that bonus damage faster. I also used Greater Seal of Evasion and Greater Quintessence of Evasion because you need all the dodge you can get so you can proc Counter Strike as much as possible and avoid alot of damage.

Masteries

I went the offensive route because Jax is supposed to do a ton of damage. Defense is not really what he's there for, sure he can dodge alot but that doesn't make him a tank. Utility isn't nessasary because there's no benefit for this character, he just loses damage output and you don't want that.

Items

You're gonna want to start off with Cloth Armor, 2 Health Potion, and 1 Mana Potion so you can brush off some of the minion damage.

The first time you recall you want to get Ninja Tabi for the extra dodge chance.

Next you want to pick up Blasting Wand for that extra damage from Empower.

After that if you can afford Guinsnoo's Rageblade than pick that up, if you come up short just buy Pickaxe and upgrade to Guinsoo's Rageblade next time you recall.

Now get Stinger for that extra attack speed to help with Relentless Assault's and Guinsoo's Rageblade's passive abilities, and work your way torwards that Nashor's Tooth.

Pick up Nashor's Tooth if you can, if not get Fiendish Codex and pick up Nashor's Tooth on your next recall.

Now you need to get Needlessly Large Rod and focus on getting Rabadon's Deathcap.

Get Sheen and work your way to Lich Bane.

Now to work on gettin the final item. Get Hextech Revolver and save up for Hextech Gunblade
