What kind of Champs is Jax?

Well, Jax can be called "OP Char" for some reasons.
He has great sustain and a high damage output due to his skills and passives.
He has good escape/engage skills and can be played in many ways like offtank,ad and hybrid (not often seen after the patch)



When, you hear "Patch" you will think Jax was nerfed,NOT!!!!!!!!!!.
He is remade in a good way, ok it may be possible that the old jax had better better sustain and Damaga-Output, but this was before the Hextech nerf.Today Jax turned into one of the best Offtanks in the entire game.

Which Build

Well the first two Builds are pretty much the same :/ only with another order of the Items and Some changes.


I prefer the first one, this is my main Jax build.
Well with the first too build you will go more tanky,with a medium-high damage output;- i recommend this build if the enemies have many damage dealers


The third build,well, lets say it more an experiment. I tried this shortly after the Patch to find a good build for jax , it works relatively fine, because of the damage dealt buy your ultimates passive.

Skills

Leap Strike


Great ability,which scales on both AD and AP.
This skill is used as a gap-closer whichworks even otherwise, because, you can jump to your Allies and sight wardWards too.
This why allways remind that you will have a Wriggles Lantern.



Empower


The main ability of Jax.Its the main damage ability of Jax and can be used before Leap strike to deal additional damage.




BAM BAM BAM...wrong game, but its almost the same. its the ability that makes you counter every ad carry. It deals up too 200% percent damage for every aditional hit taken from enemy units/champs.Why BAM BAM BAM?Because while the duration of the dodge you can feel free to deal as much damage to your opponent(s).The main function of this skill is the stun which apllies after channeling. The stun is AoE.(Area of effect)
This skill is VERY useful in the jungle.



Grandmaster´s Might


After you skilled this ability you can Jungle,jungle and jungle(ganking included)
On activation you get a medium boost of armor and magic resist.
and on every third attack you will deal´bonus magic damage.

Laning/Jungling/Harrassment/Combos

Laning


Your goal in the laning phase is to get as much farm as possible.Thats all.
But you want some kills too,ofcause you want.
Before you can get some kills its nescessary to harrass you opponent buy simple tactics
Activate your E+ Q + W.
If your opponent starts too attack you you should flee until you can do your last combo.
But if you´re already level 6 do this.
Activate your Ultimate.And do the following: Autoattack,Autoattack + instant
this will deal a good amount of burst damage.



Jungling


Jungling is pretty easy.
Ask for a pull/cover of the blue buff.
Attack the Golem with basic attacks and frequently cast your .
now go to the wolves and use your then.
Now you can finish of the wolves. Repeat the last step at Wraiths,Golems;Red buff, until you hit lvl 3. now you can gank



Thats pretty much the same what you do in teamfights.
