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.
-This in my opinion is the best way to build Jax. The reason being, with your summoner spells, ult, and item actives... you literally become an unstoppable beast. Remember this is a dominion guide.
-I know the text portion of this guide is not pretty. That is because i have no idea how to work Mobafire's stuff. Forgive me.
Pros / Cons
+ MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DAMAGE WHILE ACTIVES ARE UP
+ Pretty good sustain
+ Very versatile.
- Kinda squishy
- Need item actives to wreck families.
-Zerker boots will give you the attack speed you will be lacking. With this along with runes, you will have enough attack speed. You will have enough to buy a Long Sword and a hp pot.
-First trip back, get Phage. You need Phage on Jax, or everybody will just get away from you.
-Next, get a Vamp Scepter, or a Hextech Revolver. I recommend getting the Revolver first, but just buy whatever you have enough money for. But buy both of them before you buy anything else, and do not upgrade to Gunblade. These two items will give you the sustain a Gunblade gives, but without spending a lot of money. You need that money to get more damage.
-Next buy a Brutilizer. This will give you the armor pen you are lacking in runes. The CD reduction is also very nice.
-Next buy an Avarice Blade, you can choose to hold onto it for a while or just upgrade to Yomus. Once you buy Yomus, you will be able to kill a lot more effectively.
-After Yomus, get a BF Sword. You will use this BF sword to upgrade your phage into Entropy. The active on Yomus and Entropy make you do stupid damage, even on tanks. Pop Ult> Yomus> Entropy> Surge> Exhaust, to do maximum damage. In this state you can probably 1v3 enemies when they are at full hp. (depending on the type of cc they use on you).
Next you are going to want more attack speed. Buy a recurve bow, then later upgrade it to Wit's End. More attack speed is going to allow you to make the most of your item active frenzy.
-Last, upgrade your Vamp, and Hextech Revolver into a Gunblade. The game should be over by this time.
-IF FOR SOME REASON the game is still going after you buy the Gun Blade, buy a Warden's Mail. This will make you impossible to 1v1. Of course if the game drags on longer upgrade it to a Randuins.
-Go bottom. You are going to need a lot of farm.
-FARM FARM FARM FARM KILL FARM FARM KILL FARM KILL KILL KILL
-Eventually, you will want to switch with one of your teammates when your lane opponent builds to counter you. Make sure whoever you switch with, is not countered by the item they bought. [EXAMPLE: AD Nidalee built a Wardens Mail to counter you. Switch with Ryze, and go top.]
-Take and Defend top, or roam. It's up to your best judgment. You can 1v1 people very easily, but i recommend you fight with your team.
-Yep, so there is my Jax Guide. Hope you wreck families like I do with this build. I'd enjoy to read your feedback, whether it be positive or negative. I don't really care if you like the build or not, I'd just like you to try it for a few games. (THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX WITH THE OLD RAGEBLADE/GUNBLADE/TRINITY PEOPLE!) He's a whole new monster nowadays.
