Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Jax like Champion is good champion i always played with him and i never LOSE with him so i will just say to try to play with him...........
With Masteries i go with defensive masteries!The extra dodge and extra movement speed on dodge is wonderful, if someone is attacking you u can easily dodge that attack and if enemy run away u can stun him very easily and kill him!SO IF U ARE PLAYING 1v1 TRY JAX!
For runes i go with DODGErunes for better dodge chance, some ATTACK SPEED and someDAMAGE.I use Attack speed for jax ultimate ability for faster using of it!and Attack damage is very good with jax but u can replace it with some Megic Penatrations marks!
For summoner spells i use this:
Flash: Perfect for escaping through walls, flashing to get off that extra leap, just an all around good summoner spell.
Heal:For Better surviving and long staying at line!
For items i select this:
Doran's shield-Good Health Regeneration,Some Armor and Some health are good for surviving in the lines and for long stay, so many players select Doran's Ring like frist item but why?It give u Health but what with mana regenration and Ability Power?Yes, you need some ability power but its better to select Doran's Shiled like frist item if i should select doran's ring they can easily kill me and gank me!
Ninja Tabi-It's good beacuse it give u some Dodge chance and armor + Speed!Heres Example why u need it!Let's say pantheon is ganking u what you will do?like frist with some attack u will gain dodge chance and beacuse masteries u will gain some bonus speed Frist combo E+Q Stun the enemy and jump on minion or your teammate-No one in your area?Try with some WARDS
Guinsoo's RageBlade- Absolutely a key item for Jax. It synergizes very well with your ultimate, getting your attack speed up super fast, while providing more AP. The AD and AP gives over 200 health from your passive too.
Rylai's Crystal Scepter- This item is so freakin sweet. It bulks you up like a champ, giving you 660 health including your passive, only 80 less than a frozen mallet would give. The slow is awesome, and it lets you get kills you usually wouldn't have and escape when you usually would've died.
Randuin's Omen-VERY VERY Sweet item for Surviving it give Such a big value of Health and Armor so you are like tank!
Leap-Empower: This will be your main combo from lvl 2 onwards. It allows you to jump on someone and deal a ton of damage with just one move. It's very simple. Just activate empower and then use leap on your target, and bam you fly through the air to hit them with an empowered staff, and because empower resets your auto-attack timer, you get an extra auto-attack as well. Now I'm going to do something I hate doing. Math. I did some calculations to determine the exact damage a leap empower combo does with this finished build, considering that Hextech Gunblade gives 60AD and 70AP. So you in fact have 240AD and 280AP with your finished build. Onto calculations. Leap: 150+196(70% of AP)= 346 DMG
Empower: 215+ 112(40% of AP)+ 50 (40% bonus AD) = 377 dmg. Auto Attack: 240 dmg. Added all together, that's 963 damage, not figuring in the enemies armor. With that figured in, it's still probably going to be 700-800 damage, unless it's on a tank but you shouldn't be focusing them anyway. This is a combo you can repeat every 3.5 seconds, and in those seconds you're auto attacking and stunning like a champ. In 10 seconds you can do 2'400 damage with just leap empower, and easily another 2k or so from auto attacks, considering every third consecutive hit you do on a single target does 240+210+ 196(70% of AP)= 646. That's 646 damage from one auto attack.That's if they don't focus you. You will rarely get the chance to attack nonstop for 10 seconds. Chances are you'll get CC'd, or they'll start to attack you because they realize you're decimating their team. If you do find yourself getting focused (Odds are you will be), leap outa there and then run back in if they stop chasing you. But still. *******. When you attack 2 times a second, in 5 seconds you can just devastate a squishy. So that's the power of leap-empower. *NOTE* The math here is a little off now, because I changed my build. However, it only changed for the better, because my edit's increased my AP, so the combo actually does more damage now.
Early Game- Start out with your choice of a Dorans item. Head down your chosen lane. Try to get a lane with someone who can disable, or harass with you. Supports are always nice too. I personally love to lane with Fiddle, Sona, and Rammus and Soraka. Shen and Sion are fun too. Focus your attention on farming last hits, and once you hit lvl 2 just start doing leap-empower combos on the squishiest enemy, hopefully forcing them to go back. Don't get too aggressive, because they will kill you if you try to get them under the tower, unless they have like 100hp and you can just flash away. Once you hit level six, farm like a boss and really go for kills. The first time you go back you should have a kill or two, or at least enough gold to buy full boots and a blasting wand. If you only have enough for boots, pick up a ward or two. Put them in strategic places, by buffs, or if you want to get fancy, in places you could leap too as a get away, like in the bushes by the enemy tower.
Mid-Game- Lane as long as you want, but as soon as team action starts, go right to your team. Try and run around ganking, and in team fights always focus the squishy. Leap-empower in then run out, or keep beating on them if there team allows it. Focus on getting enough money for Guinsoo's and Hextech, and go for lizard and golem whenever they're up, especially the enemies. You can take down Golem, Lizard, and Dragon really fast after you have Guinsoo's. Backdoor if you can, you are a champ tower killer and taking down one or two towers can really help your team push.
Late Game- At this point you should have most of your items, at least Guinsoo's, Hextech Gunblade, and RylaiÃ�ï¿½Ã�Â¢Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½s. Focus on wrecking the squishies in fights (Leap-empower should take away anywhere from 1/4-1/2 or more of their health, especially to champions like veigar and ezreal), and stunning whenever you can. Put up wards at buffs, and wait to see if you can gank enemies there. One match i got 4 kills from doing that, it was pretty sweet. After you have RylaiÃ�ï¿½Ã�Â¢Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½Ã�Â¯Ã�Â¿Ã�Â½s you pretty much should have won the match, unless of course the other team is better than you and is wrecking.
