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.
This chapter is designed to tell when I have updated the build, and the reasons why I have updated them.
Because of school, I have to cut this short for the time being, but will come back to edit this later on tomorrow. So if you readers are looking for this part, it won't be complete until sometime next week. I am sorry for the time being.
Hey, Rasumii here talking to you about Jax, the Brutalizer. Now I've played Jax quite a lot, with this build especially. This build is designed to do a lot of damage and to do it fast, give Jax a lot of health, and have some armor. While playing Jax with this build, my best score has been 30/4/6. This build is designed for Classic 5v5. Yes, I know this is not the most in depth guide on here, but I just put this on here to show everyone my build.
This is my first guide on Mobafire so bare with me while I go through this.
My choice in runes for Jax are pretty simple.
My Marks/Quintessences are designed to make Jax do a significant amount of damage. With the added Glyphs of Attack Speed, it is designed to do loads of damage, and to do it fast. The seals give Jax to armor. Why? Because armor is good to have. Even with a lot of health, the extra armor can help if they don't stack on armor penetration.
My masteries are 29/0/1. Why? Because for this build for Jax, doesn't need Summoners Wrath, so instead I gave him the 1 point in utility to improve his Flash and Teleport. I gave him points in Offense to do massive amounts of damage as I've stressed before. He also got points to boost his Ability power because his moves do damage based on ability power.
Now everyone might be asking "Why did you choose these items?" or "Why are most of them the recommended items?" Why? BECAUSE THEY MAKE SENSE! Alright now seriously, they do, and I've played with these items before this new patch came out.
Mercury Treads - Well everyone loves boots... I usually get Mercury Treads because I'm usually playing with magic users. If you aren't, however, fighting magic users, I would get Berserker Greaves for more Attack Speed.
Trinity Force - Trinity Force gives the player Ability Power, Attack Speed, Attack Damage, Critical Attack, Health, Mana. That's pretty good, especially for Jax.
Hextech Gunblade - Again, Attack Damage, Ability Power, but this time it includes Lifesteal. This really makes Jax very hard to kill, because he can just gain life, ontop of having so much health, it's pretty good.
Guinsoo's Rageblade - Attack damage and Ability power. 'Nuff said
Warmogs Armor - ALRIGHT FOLKS THIS IS A BIG ONE. Warmogs armor gives a little over 900 health. That's a LOT of health. Needed? Yes, I suggest this one the most. You need this one if you play Jax. AND you can get a max of 350 EXTRA health for killing Champions/minions. Health Regen as well is very good.
Banshee's Veil - This one, is not needed. I either get this or Frozen Mallet, so you have a big chance of getting the clean kill.
I have this specific skill sequence for a reason. I get everything to level 2 first (Not inclduing Ult) Then max out Leap Strike, then Empower, then Counter Strike, while putting points in Grandmaster's Might whenever possible. Some possible alternatives is getting each skill to 1, then Maxing Leap Striker, then Empower, then Counter Strike, and putting points in Grandmaster's Might whenever possible.
Why I Play Jax
Why do I play Jax? BEACUSE HE'S BEAST! And the fact he's pretty sweet. The thing that got me to buy him was the lore. He was so powerful, the league had to put restrictions on just him? I mean, come on, that's pretty sweet. He has to fight with a lamppost. He's not even bad at fighting with it. He also looks pretty sweet too.
Wrapping it up
Now, I'm glad you've read this far, and I'd like everyone to TRY this build out if you're going to downvote it. If you still want to downvote it, please leave criticism in the comments and I'll see what I can do about it. Thanks for checking out my Jax Build!
