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.
Hi guys my name is Austin or ign Best Marksman US, if you havnt guessed by the name, YES I main JUNGLE!... No Just kidding I am a pure adc main, I know how to play other roles but I go at least 90% of all my games with adc/marksman. I have been playing since season 2 Jayce patch and have been playing as much as I can each season. I am a 15 year old sophomore in highschool and I hope I can overall give some good tips and advice on one of my favorite champions JINX Anyway enjoy reading!
Jinx is a ranged adc/Marksman and is a very strong pick Season 4. Jinx eccels at kiting, and long ranged poke and sniping with a very sexy ult!
Jinx relies on abbusing her passive "Get Excited" to really dish out extra damage and ways to escape/kite in teamfights.
If you like long ranged adc's with high burst and kite pick Jinx!
Jinx lives to wreak havoc without a thought for consequence, leaving a trail of mayhem and panic in her wake. A manic and impulsive criminal, she despises nothing more than boredom, and gleefully unleashes her own volatile brand of pandemonium to the one place she finds dullest: Piltover. With an arsenal of deadly toys, she unleashes the brightest explosions and loudest blasts - all the better to shock and surprise the hapless authorities. Always just out of the law's reach, Jinx's favorite game is to toy with Piltover's finest - especially Vi.
Piltover had long been known as the City of Progress, a place where peace and order reigned. That serenity was challenged when a new kind of criminal arrived, the likes of whom had never been seen. This mysterious outlaw unleashed a series of warped and destructive capers that endangered the entire city, and left its people reeling from the worst crime spree in Piltover's history.
As the string of crimes without rhyme or reason hit the city, sightings of the lawbreaker emerged. Though the young woman's origins were a mystery, some saw traces of Piltover hextech in her firearms, while others described the street fashions of Zaun in her dress. Because her arrival always brought trouble with it, those who crossed her path soon gave her a name: Jinx.
Jinx's rampage escalated. Caitlyn - the sheriff of Piltover - responded by declaring a state of emergency and organizing a city-wide manhunt. In typical Jinx fashion, the criminal marked the Piltover treasury, the city's most secure building, with a direct challenge to its most abrasive officer. With a caricature of Vi's face splashed across the treasury's facade, and with a time and date of her supposed raid, Jinx was openly daring the enforcer to stop her from robbing it.
Determined to put the troublemaker behind bars, Vi watched and waited outside the treasury until Jinx's time had finally come. True to her scrawled promise, the smiling menace showed her face. Knowing this was her chance to capture the outlaw, Vi gave chase into the building's interior. She smashed through wall after wall to chase down Jinx, who giggled as she lit up the evacuated treasury with fiery explosions. Vi finally cornered the criminal inside the vault, but Jinx wasn't done just yet. With a maniacal laugh, she fired a barrage of rockets, bringing the entire building down upon them both.
X Teaser When Vi finally crawled out of the ruins, the battered enforcer found no trace of Jinx. Adding insult to injury, not a single ounce of gold had been taken from the ruined vault. Instead, the criminal left a parting message to her favorite officer of the law - a challenge only now visible through the gaping opening in Piltover's skyline. The lights of the city spelled out a simple taunt: you'll never catch me. As Vi read the message, she heard the distant laughter of her new nemesis, and the city plunged into utter darkness for the very first time.
Oh look - I'm opening my box of care! Oh wait - it's empty!
Pros / Cons
PROS AND CONS
High attack range (700) with rockets
Can kite well with assists and passive!
Has AOE auto attack
High attack speed
Has 2 forms!
IS VERY ATTRACTIVE XD
Has no ACTUAL gap closer without kill/assist
Has a hard to use E (positioning)
Hard time vs thresh/leona lanes
I Start the game with a doran blade and a health potion, you can also go with a longsword and three health potions but doran start is much safer with bonus hp and lifesteal.
The best Item to rush is a Blood Thirster since it does tons of damage and is an essential early game damage item on nearly all adc's.
Once you have a Bloodthirster you will want to farm up 30 stacks asap then either engage a fight if you can or switch mid and push mid down assuming you pushed bot already. (Note if you take bot tower take dragon too!!!)
My second essential item is a Static Shiv, this is because of Jinx's passive Get Excited
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. Take Shiv for the as sits, You never know if that lightning may bounce to someone that your Rocket splash didn't!
After the Shiv I get a LastWhisper for the bonus 35% armor penetraition which is ALOT. But if enemies don't get Armor only one of them, instead get an Infinity Edge
Then You want a defensive item, Get Banshees Veil vs Heavy CC Crowd Control Comps such as Leona, Malzahar, Lissandra, Nami, Malphite. Or GA = Guardian Angel
