Welcome to my Jax Build.

Sorry for any grammar errors because English is not my native Language.

Hope you like it!

Runes

Main rune set

Greater Mark of Insight
It's great for Jax's abilities.

Greater Seal of Evasion
With this seals Jax will be better in being a "dodge *****".
_____
Greater Glyph of Potency
Good for making your abilities stronger early game.

Greater Quintessence of Evasion
More dodge? Why not!

Dodge is a must on Jax,so I go 21 points with the defense mastery tree,and 9 in offense for the 15% Magic penetration.
Note: If you are taking Exhaust as your summoner spell (instead of Cleanse) then you're mastery tree should look like this:

Summoner Spells


Cleanse
Jax's real weakness are CC so when you get CCed you can just Cleanse it and get away/kill them as it also reduces the duration of CC while it's active.


Flash
This spell is important for every champion including Jax.
If your not Level 12 (don't have Flash), take Ghost.
_____
Ignite
Ignite
Not too important for Jax, but nice for finishing your enemies and you also reduce healing effects by 50% which is very nice.


Exhaust
Good for shutting down the ad carry and also slowing the enemy so u can catch up with him/run away from him...
If you're gonna take it transfer your 1 mastery point from Deadliness to Cripple.

Items


Doran's Shield
I prefer Doran's Shield because with it u can stay longer in lane, of course only if you play careful.
Some people are using Doran's ring for Jax but I think that it isn't so good on him.
I know that Jax is hybrid but you don't need AP on start, he doesn't have ranged abilities so you can't harass enemies with them. If you use Leap Strike on levels 1-2 to harass enemies with it you will probably get raped,so you should just sit back and last hit minions.

Ninja Tabi
Dodge and armor, two of the most important defensive stats for Jax.
If you don't have enough gold for the whole boots, first buy boots of speed because you have Doran's Shield to give you some armor (also buy Health Potions if you need them).

Malady
Often i don't have enough money to buy Guinsoo's Rageblade so i decided to find some cheaper items that can be useful before buying it.
The Malady is a pretty good item, because it gives a nice amount of AP and an attack speed boost,and also a passive that lets your spells hit harder the more you auto-attack.

Guinsoo's Rageblade
It gives you a good amount of damage and AP.
Also it stacks per attack, so it can be very useful if your farming or going 1 on 1 with other champion.

Hextech Gunblade
Great item! It gives u everything (AD, AP, life steal, spell vamp).
And it has a good active.
Overall the best hybrid item in-game!

Rylai's Crystal Scepter
Gives u AP and a lot of HP.
Also passive slows enemies when they got hit by your abilities.

Atma's Impaler
I wasn't sure about should I put this item or Rabadon's Deathcap.
But I choose this item because it gives u more AD, 18% critical strike chance and some armor.
Rabadon's Deathcap gives you more AP and HP (Jax's passive) but you're kinda mooooore powerful with Atma's Impaler in the end because Jax is melee champion and it makes you more deadly in combination with Guinsoo's Rageblade and Malady.
