Introduction

Hi! This is my first mobafire guide and it is on Jax, Grandmaster at Arms.


Guide Top

Ranked Play

Jax is a great champion for solo top ranked play. He can be a great addition to any pre-made group, or can be an amazing champion to carry in solo/duo queue.

Items

[*] Hextech Gunblade
This is Jax's signature item. It gives him ability power, which increases the damage from his ultimate passive, his Leap Strike, and his Empower. It gives him attack damage, which increases his overall damage on his basic attacks, his Leap Strike, and his Counter Strike. It also gives him lifesteal, spellvamp, and an amazing active for chasing enemies down.

[*] Trinity Force
This item is also great on Jax. The proc from Sheen works very well with his Empower, the passive from Phage is great, and the movement speed, attack speed, and critical chance is also very helpful.

[*] Guardian Angel
This is a great item for almost any champion. It gives you armor and magic resist, which makes you more tanky, and an amazing passive that can allow you to last longer in fights.

[*] Guinsoo's Rageblade
This item is amazing on Jax. It gives him ability power and attack damage, and a passive that grants even more ability power and some attack speed with every ability and basic attack. At 8 stacks, this item gives you 35 attack damage, 93 ability power, and 32% attack speed. Those are insane stats for an item that only costs 2235 gold.

[*] Aegis of the Legion
This item is great to finish off jax's build. Combined with guardian angel, this will make you very tanky and help your teammates out in fights by giving them some extra armor and magic resist as well.
