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.
Hey, this is my way that I build jax. This is my first guide so pls be nice and give me constructive critisism :D!
Hope this build works for you and pls try it out and give me your feed back so I can amke the necassary adjustments.
VERY VERY good at quick burst!
One of the best 1v1 champs in the game!
He is kind of squishy but hopefully they wont be able to hurt you enough to matter :D
Stages of the game
Beginning of the game
At lvl 1 you should focus on getting to lvl 2 as fast as you can. once you hit lvl 2 you should ebgin to harass. With the combo from your Q (leap strike) and W (empower)you should be able to hit for atleast 200. So whenever your able to hop in with an empowered leapstrike and let the damage flow. WHen you hit lvl 3 yo should try and get the aggro from minions and take the hits until you dodge one there attacks. When you dodge one of there attacks you should have 7 seconds to hop in with an empowered leapstrike then stun with your W (counter strike) and then have time to get in an auto attack or two... combined with exhaust, I think you should be able to get the kill if there far enough away from there tower and there squishy..(Aka caitlyn...evellyn...twitch).
WHn you hit lvl 6 you should start ganking the other lanes. If you have good communication with your teammates then you should be able to gank with ease playing as jax. Im not saying dont gank but dont leave your lane unattended for to long as you don't want to lose your tower or your presence ina lane. (You dont always have to be the one to leave for a gank, you can call for agank in your lane so you can push the tower after finishing the gank.... providing that it was succesful).
By now, you should be into the teamfight phase and starting to really shine! Being jax, when a teamfight erupts you should use your full combo of r-w-q-e to jump over there team to massacre there squishy. If you do it right you should be able to nuke down there squishy and be able to turn around and hop right back into the fray. Hopefully taking minimal damage from the enemy team as they will be busy fighting the rest of your team. Even if your not chasing anyone never underestimate the power of there reduced damage output (It has helped me win more than a few fights!)
Dorans Ring- The reason that I buy dorans ring first is for that extra bit of damage on his Q abilty whne faced with a lvl 1 bush fight.
Guinsoo's Rageblade- Combined with his ult guinsoo's is easily the best item for jax as his ult gives him passive attack speed per hit (max of 10) and guinsoo's give him an extra 4% attack speed per attack or spell cast and 6 ability power per attack or spell cast! so an overall beastly combination with his ult.
Mercury Treads- Mercury treads are good for most champs as it gives decent enough speed and some extra magic resist and reduced cc. Nuff said
Sheen- Sheen is good for jax because after you use any ability, sheen makes your next attack have an extra base dmage of 100%. Again nuff said
Hextech Gunblade- Hextexh gunblade is an all around great item as it gives you lots of ability power, attack damage, life steal, spell vamp AND you can acticate to deal dmage to all single target!
The Black Cleaver- The black clever is especially good because of the passive. Aside from giving you attck speed and some good attack damage each attack lowers the enemy's armour by 15 (stackable up to 3 times).
Rylai's Scepter- Again all-together good iem as it gives you 500 hp and 80 ap. I mean really???? Thats just to good to be true!!!
So I hope my build works for you as it has for me in the past and pls help me out if i missed something as this is my first build.
