Introduction

Hello & welcome to my Jax Solo Top Guide!

READ: Mobafire doesnt add the 1.5 percent of max heath to damage, you final damage will be 240 not 195.


Guide Top

Runes

I choose the runes for 2 reasons, 1. For the early game burst & 2. For the extra heath to take some harass and still be fine.


Guide Top

Masteries

9-21 is just the way to go & the way I have it setup works the best for a better all around top game.


Guide Top

Items

Now the items I choose is the standard but this can change due to different opponents. If your verusing opponents like Trydamere & Irelia ( Auto Attack Tops ) then I would sub Mercury Treads for Ninja Tabi. If you feel that you are not taking as much physical damage then sub Atma's Impaler for Gun's Rageblade. CORE: Trinity Force, Hextech & Guadians Angel regardless of team comp.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Empower is your big damage source plus it resets the attack timer for a double hit. Leap is your good get to move that is your 2nd big damage tool. Counter strike's main purpose is for the stun so I would max that last & Your ult whenever possible to level up.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

I always run ignite but since Jax can leap, sometimes I sub Flash out for Exhaust to win those tough 1 v 1 fights.


Guide Top

Summary

Basically stick to the core items & change a few based on the enemy team. Always get ignite & the masteries + runes.

Ranked Play

My build is pretty solid because in ranked, people are smarter with focusing and generally the level off skill is higher. If you go all damage on Jax, you will be focused and die. If you go all tank and no damage you will not be focused right away but will not be much of a help. My build leaves the opponent unsure to focus or not because you got almost 200+ Armor and MR but still do 200 dmg and 100ap.

Pros / Cons

Pros: [*] Very good & usefull in all points off the game.

Cons: Not to many unless: 1. Your team feeds other champions or you get counter-picked.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

Whenever your not in lane or team fighting, always try to get some jungle creeps & remember to give blue buff to your AP Mid and red buff to your AD Carry.


Guide Top

Team Work

Ask your team for ganks if your having trouble, if you are winning your lane and have pushed up to the enemy turret try to get objectives like dragon or gank mid to help out.
