100% CRIT, 800 MS, 800 AD JHIN
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.
If you've ever played Jhin ADC with just pure AD, then you're playing him wrong. If you follow this build and your support doesn't suck, then you should be going positive every game. Now then, let me show you how Jhin should be played.
Why Attack Speed?
It's fairly simple. Jhin's passive Whisper has a special feature that scales attack speed items into AD and MS. So in other words, building AS allows your 4th shot to do increased damage AND give you a movement speed boost.
Wouldn't Building Flat AD Do More Damage?
Not against this build it won't. This build utilizes the Whisper passive and allows you (towards mid to late game) do a crit on each shot, not to mention that you'll be running faster than Zilean with his speed boost.
Why Is MS So Important?
" Jhin has No escapes" "If you get caught off in a fight you're dead" " Jhin has no mobility" NOT ANYMORE BUCKOS. Each crit that you hit with Whisper makes you go super fast as I have previously stated. If you have 100% crit chance then you can auto attack that pesky Udyr that ganked you and outrun him if you're lucky.
Early game I tend to try to refrain from heavy poke, and I usually just use my Whisper shots on each minion then use my Dancing Grenade to last-hit the minions. Make sure to use your 4th shot on a cannon minion if possible. If support puts a mark on an enemy, use your Deadly Flourish to snare them, and get some poke, but remember you don't have a consistent escape early game.
Mid game is when your damage starts getting stronger. I usually try my best to get as much poke as possible in order to get the enemies low. Try to put marks on enemies and stun the with [deadly flourish], get them low and find a safe location to ult, but be smart with how many shots you use. DON'T USE Captive Audience IN THE LANE. THERE IS NO POINT IF YOUR SUPPORT CAN PUT MARKS ON THE ENEMY. Use Captive Audience to prevent ganks and zone areas.
If you have picked up a couple kills by now you should be doing tons of damage. Each shot should be a crit doing insane damage and youll be speeding around the map. Just remember that you are still fairly squishy so make sure to stand behind your tanks. As long as you stay behind your teammates and keep getting those Whisper shots off to weaken the enemies.
