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.
if your laning against an ad champ(autohit based) your combo should be q,e,autohit,w .Why the autohit ? because your w resets the autohit animation and your able to give a autohit more
if your laning against an ap champ you start with your e instead of your q so you can stun immediately after qing then again an autohit and w.
importent post lvl 6 is to charge your ult passive twice before engagin/harassing! so you will do 2 autohits against a minion and then q, e , autohit(with ult passive its additional dmg) and then w .
there are a few special configurations where you engage with your e against an ad champ this is the case if you fight against an ad caster which deals less damage with his autoattack then with his abilitys ...
against champs with silence i recommend to charge your q with your w before using it becuase you wont be able to cast your w and would miss the dmg.
its always usefull to keep a ward/ward trinket/masterie ward as escape tool with you because you can q to wards
you are raping simply everyone which is ad based in laning phase there are some exceptions they are :
-elise(even if not ad)
you can outplay everyone of this !(except elise and malphite)
you can win the lane but need to rely on your jungler and skill!
how to play against elise :
elise is the maincounter you start with flask rush instant maw of malmortius and hug your tower and spam pings to your jungler
how to play against malphite:
just dont get greedy , keep calm and wait til lvl 6 and your gunblade then with the help of your jungler you can kill him easy!
how to play against DARIUS:
against him you have to play a bit different ... incase of his e ( the grab ) you should run a different tactic... you should walk to him (not q) with your e poke him with the stun duration and your w and q away ! because if you attack him with your combo you wont get away anymore incause of his e
as jax you need to be farmed . you are very good to farm under turrets aswell. try to combine farm with harassing the enemy ! do 2 autoattack on minion ( and kill it ) then do ur qew combo and leave the enemy alone
try always to go in long trades incause of your passive ! also your itembuild will profit from that (gunblade cooldown drops 1sec every time you autoattack a champion , rageblade stacks, blade of the ruined king also does extra dmg , spellbalde passive from trialforce )
jax is mightfull weapon to isolated targets in teamfights always try to kill or punish someone whos positioning is wrong . if your team has a tank let him engage and jump on the enemy adc and nuke him down . if your team dont has a tank you have to build a bit more tankier in earlygame and engage by your self
in lategame you can always do the jungle ! yours and the enemys ! you can do solodrake with the right items and splitpush all the time . if your jungling in the midgame care of raping your mana not to much ! dont use your q while jungling this is to expensive !
