Threats & Synergies
He is very annoying early game, but you should get him easily.
Who let the dogs out? Who, who, who. Don't let him stack with your combo, and you should be golden.
Satan is hard to counter with all champs. Get first item and make your E W Q combo and you should get him.
Cut the tree. He has a lot of cc, and by a lot, I MEAN A LOT.
Send him back to Zoo. Buy a pink ward and place it down everytime he uses his W. He is very annoying but you should be able to kill him early.
Avoid his cleavers. He is dead anyway. Has a lot of sustain and you might need an item with grevious wounds or take ignite.
Fight him when your E is up and you should win
Break his watch.
Might be a challenge. You might want to ask your jungler for a gank.
Counter DUNK IT. Do NOT engage a 1 vs 1 fight before level 6 because he will destroy you with his passive. And do not engage when you have 5 stacks of blood.
Sushi. He is hard, but if you manage to avoid his ult, you are pretty much golden. Unless it's a fed challenger fizz...
Might be a problem. His crits are too big. Avoid his barrels if you can and try to avoid his ult. In my opinion his easiest stage is early game, so deny him possibility to farm and finish fast so you don't go into the late game. YOU ARE A PIRATE.
This match up has 2 ways. One of them, it's cheese where the Irelia started playing an hour ago. Or, it's a tryhard next challenjour. Ask for ganks and try to sit next to your turrets.
After update he became pretty damn strong. Try to harass his and if it doesn't work with the jungler.
hasaki. His passive gives him sort of protection, so when his bar fills up Q on him and then do your combo.
RIVEN MAINS. If you can put a ward down and jump to it and escape her ult/q/w, cheese.
You shouldn't be so afraid of him, but you can kill him if you manage to avoid his W and engage when he has no escape.
destroy before he reaches level 6, or ignite him when he ults. If he is fed, he's deadly.
Pretty damn annoying. Try to avoid her tentacles and dodge her pull. When she hits 6, be very careful since she can slap your face with her tentacles, and if your team ganks her and she ults...
Let's make some lunch... OUT OF LAMB MEAT. Pretty easy match up unless she kites you. Farm, and whenever she tries to farm punish her.
A problem if fed. Harass him as much as possible with your combo and ask your jungler for ganks. Make him regret every second of choosing renekton against god JAX.
Show him sunlight, should work?
"10/10 Would harass again" - Fiora Harass her carefully before level 6, and if done correctly you might get her.
He is extremely annoying because of his w, which simply knocks you back. Trading with him is extremely dangerous because of his passive and his 400 dmg bite at level 6.
Mirror Match up. It's clearly who gets fed first/who is more skilled/ who gets ganked first.
Jump on a ward or a minion when he ults you. I haven't got in any trouble against this champion.
He is relatively easy, but hard to keep control. If you let him proxy, he will simply leave you out of Exp. If you don't kill him, he will take your minions. Hope that the person isn't a proxy Singed main and ask your mid laner for help.
This match up is pretty hard if she knows how to hit her spells well, Other than that, cheese.
His CC is pretty damn hard and he is tanky aswell. Try to ask your jungler for help and build items against cc and tanky champs.
Pretty strong after the update, but shouldn't be very hard to fight against. Sure he is tanky, but you can 1 vs 1 him quite easily.
When he throws you back, q on him. Try to stun him and unleash your combo. Dodge his range attacks because he hits like a truck
He is quite hard to fight, that he doesn't rly loose his stacks, he became pretty hard to fight against. Try to fight him before 6, and when he hits 6 be very careful because his ult does quite the damage. You can bait his spike attack from the ground (Sorry, I'm braindead) by not moving.
Pretty easy because you counter him. When you initiate a fight use your E. He will try to bait you to use it and then ult you or Q you, so be ready for that.
She is really fast and will annoy the hell out of you. Care for what happens and don't act dumb.
Strong but quite fragile.
He is quite strong because of his shields, so be careful when engaging and watch out when you have low health.
Should be pretty easy
god damn rat
Just like a swedish meatball, spicy at first but easy on the tongue afterwards
You can escape his ult with a trinket + q
Same like Yi
Has a bunch of CC but you win trades
Overall annoying to deal with and you can hardly fight him, if you can pin him down early
Introduction & Summary
Jax is a wonderful champion to play. Not only he is cheap, but he is easy and has crazy damage when played right. I personally played him somewhere 1500 times both in top lane and in jungle. This is my first guide ever, and it would be wonderful if you take your time and read my guide. I love for his passive, and his E W Q combo which stuns the enemy, does crazy damage, and closes the gap between you and the enemy. scales well with both AP and AD which is perfect for a hybrid build. So lets start. Please excuse me for the poor quality of the guide; I'm currently learning how to use Mobafire.
Also, The VS CHAMPIONS is available only in the top build, so if you are using the jungle build just navigate to the top build
3 games I played with Jax: (for example)
NOTE: THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY GOOD GAMES I PLAYED WITH JAX.
Screen shots of people using my builds: (I am adding here submissions, send them in the comments)
W > Q > E > W > W > R > W > Q > W > Q > R > Q > E > Q > E > R > E > E
E > W > Q > W > W > R > W > Q > W > Q > R > Q > E > Q > E > R > E > E
So, W should be used almost every time you have and it when you are in a fight, as well as the ult unless you can do without it. Also, when you get used to Jax, you will know what abilites to use. Jax isn't a high skill champ and doesn't require you to press a lot of keys in order to make a combo, which is why I like him.
W+Q on the enemy
Running away from someone:
E, ward and then Q on the ward
In a teamfight you want to use your ult to stay alive. In a 1 vs 1 keep using your E and W to negate damage and hopefully kill the enemy.
