update! :o

shortly after making this guide, i quit playing jax. this guide will not be updated, and the info in this guide may be irrelivant. BUT i plan to try to make more guides for characters i play with frequently, so check out my other builds if they intrest you,


Guide Top

Chapter 1

Intro
I decided to make this build after the recent hallowed patch where a lot of changes were made to Jax that people considerd to be nerfs. I made this build to show the Jax isn't nerfed, hes just different than before.
(remember this is an AP build, with lower survivability than a hybred, or damage)

Build / Reasoning
i always start off with cloth armor, 2 health pots, and 1 mana pot(you can buy more pots than that, i just choose not to), boots are nice to start with if you prefer, but it leaves you with lesser survivability and less potions to heal up with
The core items in this build are yor ninja tabi (ALWAYS buy these boots as jax) rageblade, nashors tooth,rylai's crystal scepter and lich bane (even though ive never gotten far enough to actually buy it, i think zhonya's ring is great, just for the flat ap,or a hextech gunblade, but you can put whatever you want as the last item such as a veil if theyre heavy on mages)
once you've gotten your rageblade and nashors tooth, youre pretty much unstoppable, (rageblade, nashors tooth, and your passive work together to get your attack speed to about 2.4 attacks per second within 10 attacks ((which doesnt take long))while keeping your ability power fairly high) your only threat would be a mage nuker, such as ryze, or anivia even though your ultimate keeps you relatively safe.

Gameplay
As long as flash is up, its usually fine to turret dive at low levels (less than 5) if they have about 200 health left, as long as you flash out before the second shot from the turret.
Even in late game, be weary of mages, they can still burst a large chunk of your health out of you if youre not careful
When im laning around level 8, and have a fair amount of survivability, i like to attack the back line of minions to lure them to attack me, that way your stun is up more often than not.

Last Words
I would like to quickly say thanks,and note that i will be updating this guide as long as i am playing LoL, and I progress as a player.
