Threat Champion Notes
2
Lux Hardly any threat since she has to lane her bind to do anything to you. Just side step it. Start Dorans Blade

Morgana Dodge the binding and you should be ok. if she chases you while she has ult on you, place your chompers down.

About Jinx Mid?

So recently i noticed that Varus was being placed in the lcs, which infact yes his kit is well suited to be used there due to his poke range and a whole other range of features. So it got me wondering if any other ADC/Marksman could use this roles to their advantage.

After a number of tests on various marksman, i have come to a conclusion that jinx is actually pretty good and well suited as a Varus mid type champion and i will explain a little why.

Abilities:
Switcheroo!
Her Q doesn't serve much of a point other than to farm and kill champions and since you will be going with CDR, there isn't much use for it on her Q anyway. However when you have Manamune, soon to be Marumana, it becomes a real pain to deal with both in lane and teamfights. The AOE on her Q is small but if the group in teamfights it soon starts to shred them. During the laning Phase it can be quite good since you are at a range advantage most of the time to poke with it and stack up your tear

Zap!
Her W acts like Varus' Q. although the range might be slightly lower it scales off much more ad. 140%, to be exact, which is insane! When CDR comes into place it becomes a real pain to deal with aswell since you can spam it alot at such high damage output.

Flame Chompers!
Her E is good for escapes and to stop the enemy in their tracks, however you have to place it correctly on defense since once it is used you are pretty much out of escapes other than your flash (unless you decide to take a different summoner spell). Other than escaping and trapping your opponent, that is all it is really used for.

Super Mega Death Rocket!
Her ult (IN MY OPINION) is just a way of finishing an enemy off. The way i see it is that an enemy got away with flash so now you are gonna ult to try to get the kill.
