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.
Threats to Jhin with this build
|Lucian||High threat, as q and w are quick and lucians are quite mobile, outweighing jhins bursts|
|Varus||Varus q does lots of damage, which jhin is very vulnerable to. Varus also has a stun, which keeps you in place for an e/q combo.|
|Ashe||Ashe has a slowing q, and a stunning e and r. Jhin relies on speed to poke, and ashe can take it away.|
Jhin is an ideal adc, with long range and good poke. But he can also play mid, top, and jungle. In mid, he is ideal against squishy mages (xerath,ezreal,annie), but gets destroyed by assassins (zed,yasuo,katarina). Jhin can play top in some cases, he just needs to have tanky items incorporated (phage,black cleaver,frozen mallet). Jhin can also jungle, just get attack speed items and devourer/trackers knife
Jhin is ok in ranked, just play adc or mid for the best results, as many champs that destroy squishies like jhin appear in ranked.
Farming with jhin is quite easy. Just wait for the creeps to be at about 20% health to basic attack. On your 4th shot, you do bonus damage. This makes farming easy as 50% creeps can be killed. You can also save this shot for poking. However, jhin is quite weak after this, because he needs to reload. This is a good time to use your q, which bounces and does bonus damages with every bounce.
Pros / Cons
Pros:Good farmer, high damage with basic attacks and w, great teamfighter as his ult is a good finisher.
Cons:Squishy, vulnerable after 4 shots, trap damage is avoidable, and ultimate shots stop on champ hit
