Threats to Jax with this build
|Sion||Jump on a ward or a minion when he ults you. I haven't got in any trouble against this champion.|
|Singed||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.|
|Master Yi||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.|
Introduction & Summary
I AM BACK, AND I HAVE BROUGHT MEMES WITH ME. (in progress)
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

NOTE: THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY GOOD GAMES I PLAYED WITH JAX.

Another amazing thing with Jax is that he is very versatile, and literally everything works on him. There are just so many builds that make Jax effective, that even a troll build would work. I personally enjoy the hybrid Jax build since guinsoo's was introduced to league of legends, and It's one of the most fun builds out there. The trinity + hextech + guinsoo combo is basically bread and butter, and items such as titanic hydra are a topping to what we have. For your own personal good, I recommend trying both tanky hybrid,(Steraks + Titanic Hydra + Trinity), build as well as a classic hybrid Jax build.
Below are the skills you need to take. Now let's discuss the combos.
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.
