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.
Hello, my summoner name is Tempest Gaming lvl 30. I main Jax and am very comfortable with him with my build. This build is for a mid game assassin and late game bruiser. mid game gives incredible burst damage and 1v1 chances to be in your favor.
I choose flat ad reds(marks), flat armor yellows(seals) and flat Mag Resist blues(glyphs) and the quints 1 arm pen quint and 2 flat ad quints will give you ease in the jungle and early ganking capabilities.
I choose 24/6/0. I choose 24 in offense because the 10% magic penetration is crucial with jax's W and R. with the rest of the masteries in the ad tree. I choose 6 defense for the extra armor and mag resist.
As a jungler I will always start off with the cloth armor and 5 pots. Its also viable to start off with a vampric scepter. But I advise the cloth and 5 pots for jungling ease. with your first trip back I would get Boots, and some health pots if you can.(Ill explain jungling routes, when to b and when to gank in a seperate chapter)After you do a few jungling routes, and gank once or twice, you'll want to B and get a vampric scepter and amplifying tome. After the amplifying tome your going to want to save up for the hextech gunblade(Crucial to have for Jax)After the Hextech your going to want to get a Trinity Force for the extra burst, and tankiness. After the Trinity Force youll want to get the Guinsoo's Rageblade for the Attack Speed and AP steroid. Now your done with your attack items and the enemy team will smarten up and start to focus you. Your going to want to get the Warmogs Armor and farm that up to its max health and health regen. Hopefully by then you can get the Force of Nature for the insane Magic Resist and extra 40 health p/5. Your build is now complete and have fun destroying enemies at your conveniece :)
I get Smite for jungling. Extremely helpful for red and blue buff. Then i get Flash for ganking and escapes.
Creeping / Jungling
Your going to want to start off at Blue(get leash from mid and top). If they both help you will only have to E once auto attack once or twice and smite the Ancient Golem for Blue Buff, now you get wolves, wraiths and then Red. If done correctly and fast your smite should have 15 seconds left on cooldown and your only going to be level 2. so make sure you have health pots ready. your going to want to start hitting red buff before your smite is available again. make sure to counter strike and empower whenever you can. Smite as soon as its available. Now get the golems. After Golems you have cleared your jungle. Go and kill wraiths once more and you should be level 4.Now you put in a gank to the lane that has enemies over extended. after the gank, b get your items. And now jungle at your ease and dont push yourself. ALWAYS WATCH OUT FOR COUNTER JUNGLERS.
