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.
this guide is about Jayce. I want to teach you how i play him (and win 9/10 games). The masteries arent that important cause i dont know which i should use. So I randomly took my old masteries of tristana & all the other ad carrys for him. Maybe you guys find another good compilation. Same to the runes. I dont know if they´re the best or the best composition. I just use them for all of my ad carrys and yea, that rockz!
Most important info: Use your ULT (R) to run fast! And you can play whatever you want. Jungle, Sololane, Midlane or Botlane. Its all the same :)
Basically, you use ad-carry-runes for him. Hes one of the best nukers (Q -> Nidalee (Spear), W -> Tristana (Attackspeed), E -> Team-Buff-Blitzcrank (speedup)) and a strong melee (Q -> Jax (jump), W -> Shyvanna / Amumu (AoE-damage), E -> mix of Alistar (knockback) & Varus (slow). So important should be, that you get armor-penetration, magicresist & armor for earlygame
The items I use for Jayce are listed above. I´VE TO TELL YOU THAT I´VE NEVER REACHED THE LAST ITEM IN A SINGLE GAME! Each game i playd ended after my infinity-edge or the 1.650gold Sword for BT. And all of these games were victorys ;)
Your skill-sequence should be like that:
First skill: Q
Second skill: E
Third skill: W
Everytime it´s possible for you to skill your ult, do it. If not, skill up Q and E the same amount. W is useless until lategame (in my opinion) so you should level up that skill at the end.
After you got your trinity, you should switch your ult that fast as possible in fights. Cause of your trinity, you toggle the sheen-skill for bonus damage every skill. Your normal effect does the same. Means: You transform from melee to range, shot your enemy and he´ll get basic attack damage, bonus damage (cause of ult) and the basic attack damage will be increased cause of sheen. Same is with your W-Skill.
As summonerspells I pick Flash (for overwall-jump to get away or to kill someone) and Ignite. Thats because ur fast enough.
Maybe you could use exhaust (for less damage) too, but i take ignite.
Pros / Cons
Lategame high damage output
The skill-cooldown of melee is not the same like range! Means: You activate melee-Q, switch to range and you dont have cooldown on range-Q!
Low mana at beginning
Good aiming is important
Try to shot on enemy champions ONLY by using your E and your Q! It provides more damage, harder to dodge cause of increased speed
Jayce is a medium tanker too. Your Q is to jump like jax to nearby champions, your E is to knock them a little range back and slow them. Your E will deal damage based on the max hp of the target! That means: Your damage is percentaged!!!! Thats very useful in teamfights so you can focus the high-hp dudes easily by using your E. Activate your W (AoE-damage) in teamfights the same so you can easily deal damage just while u tank. You can even switch your form after used your W back to the Range to gain the extra damage-bonus and after 6 more seconds, just switch back and activate your skills again.
