Introduction

Hi everyone.

I am a really experienced Jax player and this build is both perfect for 5vs5 and 3vs3 games.


Guide Top

Runes

Marks I go for magic penetration as jax is highly based on ability power.
Seals dodge. Obvious here...
Glyphs are situational, I usually get focused by mages so I chose magic resist runes.
Quints dodge. The more dodge jax has, the higher success of winning against anyone!

Items

The item sequence which I present in this build is my favorite for jax.

Why I don't buy Guinsoo's first?
- Because Zeal give me the same attack speed at the lower levels, and good moving speed, which i prefere + is cheaper and easier to get in early game.

The last item ( in the sequence is banshee's veil ), this is a SITUATIONAL item. If you are doing well and aren't getting too much focused by CC's, then you may buy another Hextech instead of it!

Early Game

As Jax you are not going to have an easy time on the lane, especially versus ranged champions.
Try to get as many last hits as possible and farm until you are level 6.
To harass the enemy just do the standard combo, W, Q and go back.

At level 6, if you aren't farming too well on your lane, go to the jungle and get the money for the Hextech Revolver. When you got that, you can pretty much own the entire jungle.


Guide Top

Solo fights, Team-fights, Ganks

This is probably the most important section of this guide. How to fight with Jax!


1.

If possible, even at the low levels, try to get some enemy minions around you right before engaging in a fight! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, as the minions will keep on hitting you, and with 31% dodge, you will be able to pretty much stun the enemy every 4 seconds.



2. Be persistent, you are a great chaser.

3. Never, ever be afraid of engaging 1 vs 1, unless you know that you are under leveled or that the enemy back up is nearby. Jax is a master of solo fights, scared of tryndamere? Totally not, he is gonna be scared of you after two stuns and 3 hits from your ulti.
