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.
JAX! The champion that can solo life. In my opinion Jax can be one of the most rewarding and enjoyable champions to play in solo que. Im NOT saying this will be a good guide for high level ranked games. Just fun for the occasional pub-stomp ;)
READ: EVEN THOUGH THE BUILD ONLY SAYS HE WILL HAVE 1971 HP HE WILL HAVE MORE...ABOUT 1585 MORE. MAKING HIS HEALTH WITH THIS BUILD ABOUT 3556 HP.
If you know anything about Jax, you know that he has a magically wonderful ability called "counter strike". This ability gives you a stun and passive dodge. The stun is only usable after the dodge procs. I like to base his quintessences and seals off evasion, so buying the Ninja tabi is NOT a necessity. It gives you more options for your boots...Say if the enemy team is CC heavy you can get Mercury Treads....Which I usually like to get anyways because CC is one of the few things that could be shut you down, if you don't prepare properly. For glyphs I just get some mana-regen because I don't really find any of the other runes that helpful. And lastly for Marks I get attack speed runes. It helps buff his AS because I only get 1 AS item and...well he needs it.NUFF SAID!
Well these are mostly self explanatory....dodge....yada-yada....improved summoners....yada-yada....spell pen %....If you haven't noticed this is an AP build for Jax.
This is where the fun begins :) I start out with Boots of Speed because I LOVE to be aggressive and harass the living **** out of my lane. With the pots i'm usually good until I get a kill or have enough CS to buy. By the time you get to buy you should be aiming to get your Hextech revolver.
Proceed to mid game.=====>
By this time you should be farming and pushing your lane hard. Most of the time you will be able to have good control over a lane and a fairly formidable foe. At this time you most likely should have a couple kills and start ganking other lanes. You want to start working to get out your first Gunblade. After that you want to get your 1 AS item Nashor's Tooth. If your not feeling that so much i'd recommend Phantom Dancer. Both give really nice AS. Next you want...guess what? YOUR NEXT GUNBLADE! WHY do you ask? Well it works sexy with your passive, increasing your survivability. It gives you additional lifesteal AND spellvamp, basically making you indestructible. Low on HP? Throw down your q,w. combo and get a **** tone of health back :D
Proceed to Late game.=======>
At this point you own everything except Baron... :( and 3(and up)v1 situations. Time to push this AP thug(thats you, Jax) into over-drive. Get your Deathcap...OBVIOUSLY to become a real pimp, with a real fly hat to match your purple suit. The extra AP and boost to overall AP is nice too I guess. And Lastly you will want to get the super-late game Lich Bane. BTW Once you get deathcap...Baron...is your *****. At this point if you ever reach it,( and well you really shouldnt ever)you are god and Q is your law.
End of the Road...
At this point i've thrown down the basics of my Jax. I can't ensure this will work for you but i'm sure after enough practice you'll make something of yourself :P
More to come...If wanted :P
I'm just throwing this up as an idea. If peeps like i'll put more work into the guide and will make an actually detailed gameplay guide. As of now its mostly just a build.
