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.
Whenever a champion or tower that Jinx has dealt damage to within the last 3 seconds is killed or destroyed, she gains 175% movement speed that decays over 4 seconds.
Pow-Pow, the Minigun
TOGGLE OFF—POW-POW, THE MINIGUN: Jinx's basic attacks grant bonus attack speed for 2.5 seconds, stacking up to 3 times. The stacks decay one at a time when she stops attacking with her minigun.
ATTACK SPEED: 10 / 18.3 / 26.6 / 35 / 43.3%
TOTAL ATTACK SPEED: 30 / 55 / 80 / 105 / 130%
Switching to her Rocket Launcher will not clear any active stacks, but they will not grant attack speed after her first attack.
COOLDOWN: 0.9COST: 20 MANA PER ATTACK

BONUS RANGE: 75 / 100 / 125 / 150 / 175
Additionally, her attacks will splash, dealing full damage to all enemies in a ~150-radius area. The bonus damage to her target and the splash damage both scale additively with critical strikes.

how to last hit with her
Jinx is a very cool harassing champion. With her Switcheroo! she can harass enemys easily without taking damage. Everytime when the enemy adc comes near to kill a minion, hit him with Jinx´s rocket´s. But dont forget to last hit. Last hitting is much important than harassing. Only harass if you cant make last hits at the moment. Harassing is really important to zone the enemy adc.
Dont forget your Trinket and use it everytime you can.
What you should do in Lane:
Harrass your enemy
Play for farm, not for kills
make it difficult to farm for the opponents
