Introduction

Okay, I haven't played Jax for too long, but I have already been called "pro" and done very well, so I thought I'd just make a guide on him. He is a very fun champion to play as and always gets a ton of kills. :)

Runes

I actually don't have enough ip points to buy all the runes, so just try to buy runes that compliment your playing style. For ex:
If you find yourself dying too much, get some health of defensive runes.
If you like to spam abilities too much, get mana regen or ap runes.
Etc.

Masteries

Masteries are easy to set up. Try to go defensive, making sure to get Evasion and Nimbleness. After putting up your defensive tree(for more survivability), just put your points into offensive masteries so you can kill and destroy more often.

Items

Jax can have a lot a variations to his core item build. Always start off with a Doran's Ring. Next, always get Ninja Taibi for dodge. Sheen, Guisinoo's Rageblade, and Hextech Gunblade are completely necessary for most games. Because of your awesome passive, you will be getting extra health too. Sheen's passive is devasting combined with the Empower+Leap Strike Combo, and it gives mana for early game lane endurance. Guisinoo's has another awesome passive, and increases both your AD and AP capabilities. Hextech Gunblade is sort of like a powered up Guisinoo's Rageblade, except it gives you that useful spell vamp and lifesteal. So, if you're low on health, farm some minions or jungle a bit to regain it. After that, you can either upgrade your Sheen into a Trinity Force or Lich Bane. Finally,the last choice is yours. You can get items like Atma's, Hexdrinker, Abyssal Scepter, malady, or even another Hextech to finish your build. Just build what bests adapts you to your enemies.

Skill Sequence

Your idea is to get your Q up as much as possible to harass enemies, escape, and kill. W is the next most important, as its combo with Q is devastating. Counter Strike is valued last, although you will be using it at first rank a lot. Obviously, rank up your ult whenever possible.

Summoner Spells

Flash and Ghost are my choice summoner spells, because they let me escaoe my enemies and chase them with ease. Other viable options are cleanse( to save your life becuase you don't have merc treads) and exhaust(to kill some more people with). Just mix and match, but make sure to change your masteries accordingly.

Summary

Well, this is my first guide, so I hope you enjoy it. Jax is definitely a very fun champ and can be built in different ways, so have fun and build him the way you like to play.
