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, i created my build on how to inform people to play jax. iv'e seen alot of disgusting builds and they really just aren't good. One thing that makes me mad is people that rush Madreds Bloodrazer. biggest waste of money. anyways, i focused on lane jax and jungle jax. They are bascially the same builds except one is for solo and one is for lane.
Attack Damage Reds: i took attack damage reds for that early game extra damage and last hitting, nothing else really fills this spot for jax
Defence Yellows: Basically so i can sustain my lane better and its pretty much the only good choice for jax
Magic resist per level Blues: he really lacks magic resist so by going magic resit per level he really benefits from it late game
Movement Quints: i choose these which are really expensive, but the reason i do is because with boots 1 you have enough movement speed the whole game to do whatever you want and it saves you 850g from merc trends that you can build toward an extra pickaxe which really gives you the ability to nuke kids with jax
Frozen mallet: for the slow and the good sustain
Trinity: little bit of everything
Rageblade: works very well with frozen mallet on getting the stacks to 8 - Locked in on jax
Hextech: Amazing lifesteal and ad and ap - Locked in on Jax
Merc trends: hate CC - Locked in
Warmogs: over frozen mallet if u wanna be more tanky
Bloodthirster: exchange this out at the end and sell your lantern for that extra 77 ad and 5 percent lifesteal
Gaurdian angel: always good
Atmas: always good with warmogs
Basically you Leap on them with the Q, then you hit E to stun them, and then instantly after every auto attack hit W because it resets your auto attack timer and also does bounus dmg, Always use your ult, never not use it the cooldown is pretty short and it gives u a huge boost
Exaust - Locked in best spell for jax
Ghost - movement speed buff because i take awhile to get boots 2
Flash - you can use sight wards and hop on them with ur Q
Smite - jungling of couse
ignite - not recommended
Pros / Cons
-Has a skillful stun
-best 1v1 champion
-nukes any squishy pretty quick
-A little Squishy early game
-Not as good as the old jax
-Gets focused alot in team fights
in Ranked play, you counter irelia and gankplank solo lane. Also, Nasus counter you...
when i lane against gankplank and irelia, i get 5 pots and a cloth armour, against nasus, i would reccomend a regrowth pendant. or if there is a nasus solo top, dont pick jax.
Jax's Role is to take down the ap carry and ad carry (such as any characters role) your supposed to sit in the bushes, when the team fight engages, jump on the ad range stun them pop everything on them, kill them, get out alive, and repeat.
