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 has always been my favourite champion.
I have played more then 300 games with him and now I would like to share my experience with the world.
As none of the other builds on mobafire are correct.
Let me explaine why I chose those runes:
-Greater Mark Of Strenght (+0.95 Attack Damage): Jax's passive gives extra health/attack damage lvl, so with these runes you get attack damage + health.
-Greater Seal Of evasion (+0.75% dodge): Quite logic as Jax is the ultimate dodge champion.
-Greater Glyph Of Potency (+0.99 Ability power): Jax's passive gives extra health/ability power lvl, so with these runes you get ability power + health.
Since they changed the mastery tree, a new era for Jax has begun.
Now the best thing you can do is putting all your mastery points in offense.
As you gain massive lifesteal, attack damage, ability power,... just everything jax needs to be an unstoppable killer.
I start off with a Dorans blade, it gives you attack damage (which results in more Hp due to jax's passive) and some lifesteal, which is needed the whole game long, and makes you able to lane longer. When you need to recall while you are laning and you don't have enough money to buy Ninja Tabi, go for another Dorans Blade.
Then you go for Ninja Tabi, it gives you enough speed to catch enemies and alot of dodge chance.
After Ninja Tabi the deadly stuff is coming, when you get a Hextech revolver, you gain alot of AP and Spell Vamp (life steal from abilitys).
Instead of finishing Hextech Gunblade, it is much better to buy a Guinsoos Rageblade first.
Then you finish the Gunblade.
Now you have the 2 core-items for Jax.
When the game isnt over yet, go for a rabadons deathcap, it gives you tons of AP and makes your leap-empower combo even more lethal.
Then you should buy an atmas impaler, a very special item for jax, as it gives 2% of your health in attack damage, while your passive gives health from that attack damage.
(Its not an infinitive loop like most people think, it only does it once.)
When the game still aint over yet, you should go for trinity force, it gives you everything you need to finish the game!
Ignite is the best spell you can get for Jax and other melee champions, as it is so hard to make that last hit to kill your opponent, you can let ignite finish it.
Then you need a evacuation spell, when you fail. As the mastery pages have changed, ghost is a better spell now to use than flash(look to the offensive tree).
You can also use this spell to chase enemys.
I am still working on this to finish off the details,
plz post some comments below.
Hopefully this helps all other Jax players.
