Hey everyone, this is my guide to jax. I have played jax for quite some time now and even though they did nerf him a while back i have still had fun playing him in the jungle or solo top. But then i was teaching my friend to play LoL, so we went in a Co-Op vs AI game and duo laned in bot. About when i had 12 kills to 0 deaths in laning phase i realized that jax bot may be viable in real games. And what do you know, i tried it out and i have like a 85% win ratio with him now. :D
Just to let you know you wont be playing Jax support like a normal support, we'll get into that later.
How to play Sup/Tank Jax
So. To play Jax as a support tank u really want an ADC with High CC (eg. Ashe, MF, and maybe draven.) Once you have your setup you want to play with a ADC thats your friend. Because to play Jax this way you need to take 20% of the CS so you can still kill anyone on the other team.
When you start You want to play EXTREMELY aggressive. as soon as you hit lvl 2. do a W-Q combo on their adc or support, whichever tries to CS. If you can continue to 'zone' them back from their minions they wont be able to CS. Once one of them is like at 300 hp and come in to CS immediately jump on them, auto attack, W quickly after exhaust then auto attack again, this should apply your ultimate passive and will be an easy kill. If you ADC follows up you can drop enemies from 100% to 0. Btw, dont be afraid to take kills, try to take 50% of the kills because if ur not scary enough you could get killed while trying to zone/
After you adc gets some minions take a heap aswell and then look off to roam like a jungler would. But make sure your adc is fed enough to hold a 1v2 lane. You should try to coordinate ganks with the jungler to get easy kills and keep pressure on the enemy team. Use your teleport to roam and get back to your lane quick so you dont fall behind.
How to play late game.
At late game you should have around 4.5k HP at your full build. In teamfights you want to initiate, since you are so tanky. Proc your counter strike and jump on the enemy closet to the middle of thier group, if they are all together they should all get stunned and you just pulled off an amumu ult :P. After this your team should follow up and you most likely wont take more than 2000 dmg from doing this. You also play a big part in cleaning up. You want to chase down the low hp enemies and do a W-Q jump to kill. If they try to focus you then... well... your adc will hoopefully pentakill. A well played jax can survive for ages even in 1v5s if your adc got fed like he should he might beable to kill them all before they even hurt you.
