Jax of all Trades
You may want to fiddle with the runes, but I find AD helps Jax early in the game, having the ability to have a higher attack speed early game then other champs, it also helps if your jungler allows you to grab blue. After grabbing blue, if jungler doesnt have a problem with it, head to the closest lane. Stick to last hitting the minions and try not to use your abilities on them if you weren't able to get the blue buff (save them for the enemy champs). Once you are able to buy stinger from the shop, you will notice that your passive ult, and your abilities will be supporting your small amount of AD. Stinger is used to make jax better a initiating combat and passive ult hit more often, with this build I have been able to survive in combat with no defensive items as long as I am hitting an enemy champ. Even with this build being mostly AP, after every game when I check what type of damage I had done it is mostly Ad. If you ask me this is the real hybrid Jax, he is better at initiating, his abilities are stronger, and by end game with surge you can be hitting 2+ attacks per second, which make his passive ult that much better, plus low cooldowns on his abilities, and hands down stand toe to toe with melee AD champs including a fed Master Yi, if you use his dodge ability.
