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.
BUY THE ITEMS IN THIS ORDER. I have tried all the other basic jax builds. I don't know if anyone has ever thought of this build before but i think it is by far the best build i have ever tried on jax. MUST TRY.
Why these items?
The items i buy are perfect for jax IMO, they max him out. With the items, runes, and masteries i have chosen you will eventually have, 3500hp, 350 ad, 400 ap(with rageblade stacks), 60 life steal, 60 spell vamp, and close to 2.5 attack speed.
reasons for buy items..
starter vamp scepter- for lasting longer at laning at start + one item closer to gunblade.
ninja tabi- obviously perfect for jax since he is very reliant of dodge.
gunblade as 1st big item- gives another exhaust for ganks.. w,e,1 combo + dmg and life steal + perfect hybrid item.
rageblade- perfect hybrid item- stacks with jax's ultimate.
vamp scepter THEN hextech- this will give you more life steal sooner. buy the cheap vamp scepter then the hextech this will give you 12% ll and 15% sv asap. then after you have that u will finish the vamp scepter into a cutlass.
2nd gunblade- stacked life steal and spell vamp, to ap and ad dmg.
nashtors tooth- late game cooldown reduction, for faster w,e,w,e action.(more stuns+more empowers= more death) + more base attack speed to get your ulti and rageblade to max stacks faster + will put you at about 2.5 attack speed with max stacks. + bonus ap.
3rd gunblade- you know...
Game play tips
- Farm by last hitting creeps your lane, when they are alittle under half life empower to farm gold faster(This is why i pick empower 1st unstead of leap.)
-If other players come close auto attack and if empower is up pop it and auto.
-When you get leap, harrass your enemy by empowering and leaping.
-When you get counter strike, do empower,leap,CS,autoattack combo. you can do this to harrass or initiate a battle.
-at level 6 farm by auto attacks your ulty will do everything for you.
-You should mostly harrass at the beginning dont get to greedy jax is squishy at early stages.
- when ever you are in a battle continuously push, W,E,W,E,. until its over.
(should have gunblade,boots,rageblade for mid game.. ownage time.)
-roam from lane to lane and try for ganks
-if you catch an enemy alone, empower(w), leap(q), gunblade(1), auto attack, then w,e,w,e. If they still havent died, exhaust them and repeat.
-also if u think you will need it ALWAYS push or be ready to push R(ulti) for bonus magic res this is a huge help!
-in team battles, try to stay out of sight of big damagers/CC until tanks get in there. look for the squishies, empower,leap,gunblade,auto. this will quickly turn the fight into a 4v5. but watch out you will be targeted fast. as soon as you kill one squishy find another and leap to him.
-dont ever be scared, just always target the squishies, and always be attacking so you will always be healing. its better to die and take someone with you instead of dieing for nothing.
Teleport- for saving towers, backdooring, getting into team fights.
Exhaust- for ganking, slows target for more hits, and reduces damage.
All the runes i have chosen are perfect IMO. you can switch your MARKS with attack dmg runes.
what i have is
magic pen marks- more dmg from all spells. or attack dmg/level marks- more ad for better auto at
dodge seals- for more dodges and chance for stun.
ability power/level- more dmg from all spells.
