Threats & Synergies
She is soooooo god darn strong against you. I would ban her if I were you!!!
If he grabs you it's GG!!!!
Her long range is annoying as hell....
He used to be like super strong against Jhin but now he is just the biggest joke ever in League of Legends.
Skill matchup, if you have a good support then you might be able to win (also depends on your skill!)
This guy is strong as hell in the early and late. If you ever got 1 shotted by Draven then you know. I hate playing against him because there is nothing that you can do to prevent that axe from 1 shotting you, except building full tank.
Ezreal is a skilled matchup because of his mobility and his insane poke. You could be able to win if you play right!
Really annoying due to her insane mobility and her ability to weave in and out battles whenever she pleases
When she roots you root it is really that simple....

I hope you find this guide useful and enjoyable!
See you guys on the Rift!
is an amazing champ to play and he has his pros and his cons like every champion. so here they are.
- Great Damage
- Good CC if you hit your
- Viable every game ( In my opinion )
- Has good synergy with every support
- Looks really cool
- No escape
hitbox sometimes feels weird
- 5 skillshots ( 1x
- Takes some practise
- Weird hitbox for W
- Is an ADC in 2k18
is great on jhin because it gives you more health and movement speed when you press it. Also heals your support and that can help you survive longer. Always stay nice to your support btw :D
Helps you get out of sticky situations and I take this in 100% of my
ADC games. There's no summoner spell that could replace flash because it's just the best summoner spell there is!
Passive - Whisper
DEATH IN 4 ACTS: 's basic attacks use ammunition and his attack speed cannot be improved except through growth by level-up. Jhin can attack 4 times before having to Disarm icon reload for 2.5 seconds, and does so automatically after 10 seconds of neither attacking or using an ability.
The fourth attack is guaranteed to Critical strike icon critically strike, dealing 15 / 20 / 25% of the target's missing health bonus physical damage. The fourth attack will still Critical strike icon critically strike against structures, but deals 44% reduced damage and doesn't apply the bonus physical damage.
EVERY MOMENT MATTERS: 's Critical strike icon critical strikes grant him 10% (+ 4% per 10% bonus attack speed) bonus movement speed for 2 seconds, but his total critical damage is reduced by 25%.
Additionally, he gains 2% - 40% (based on level) (+ 4% per 10% critical strike chance) (+ 2.5% per 10% bonus attack speed) AD as bonus attack damage.

W - Deadly flourish
PASSIVE - CAUGHT OUT: Enemy champions damaged by 's basic attacks, his allies, or inside a are marked for 4 seconds.
ACTIVE: After a delay, fires a shot in the target direction, stopping at the first enemy champion it collides with, dealing physical damage.
deals 75% damage to non-champions along the way.
PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 50 / 85 / 120 / 155 / 190 (+ 50% AD)
Damaging a Caught Out champion Root roots them and grants the movement speed Every Moment Matters' bonus movement speed.
E - Captive Audience
PASSIVE - BEAUTY IN DEATH: summons a captive audience size 50 under every enemy champion he kills.
Additionally, periodically stores a captive audience size 50, up to a maximum of 2 stored at once, which are unaffected by Beauty in Death.
ACTIVE: places a captive audience size 50 at the target location that lasts for 2 minutes. The captive audience size 50 blooms if an enemy walks over it, Sight icon revealing all enemies caught inside for 4 seconds.
Blooming captive audience size 50 slow all enemies inside for 35% for 2 seconds before detonating, dealing magic damage to all enemies caught in the explosion. captive audience size 50 deal 65% damage against non-champions and champions recently hit by one.
MAGIC DAMAGE: 13 / 52 / 91 / 130 / 169 (+ 78% AD) (+ 65% AP)
R - Curtain Call
FIRST CAST: channels for 10 seconds and fully assembles his weapon before taking aim in the target direction, and gaining the ability to reactivate
up to four times.
SUCCESSIVE CASTS: fires a
round in the target direction that stops at the first enemy champion it collides with, Sight icon revealing them for 2 seconds, dealing physical damage to all enemies hit and Slow icon slowing them by 80% for 0.5 seconds.
「 MIN. PHYSICAL DAMAGE: 50 / 115 / 180 (+ 20% AD) 」
's damage is increased by 2.5% for every 1% of the target's missing health, and the
's final shot critically strikes for 100% × (1 + bonus critical damage) increased damage.
is always a good option on . But is also a great option because it gives you and extra 2 ad which the Doran's blade doesn't give you and it's handy with .
For the first back you have 2 options; Option 1: , is the best first back that you can buy with simply because it is not expensive and it gives 40 AD. For your second option you have and , these 2 also give you a lot of AD because 's Crit and AS get turned into AD.
For your core you are going to get; , and . You get these items because they make you get more crit and in my opinion crit is the most important stat on , simply because it makes you do more damage on your auto attacks.
When you have to choose or , keep in mind that is for lifesteal and if you are feeling like you get one shotted in a teamfight. is for if they have a lot of tanks that you need to one shot.
I will explain the boots really fast
, get these when you need to face a mobile champion e.g.: Ezreal, Lucian e.t.c.
, get these if you need to roam a lot e.g.: if you are really fed and mid is feeding.
, get these if you need/want more damage.
, if you are facing a fed poke champion e.g.: Ezreal or Jinx. Especially Jinx because she is oh so strong when played right against a
Whisper-Death in 4 acts-Every moment matters.
- Jhin's hand cannon, Whisper, is a precise instrument designed to deal superior damage. It fires at a fixed rate and carries only four shots. Upon firing all four shots or not attacking for 10 seconds, Jhin has to reload for 2.5 seconds.
Jhin imbues the final bullet with dark magics, guaranteeing it to critically strike and deal 15 / 20 / 25% of his target's missing Health as bonus physical damage. Against structures, the critical strike damage of this bullet is reduced by 44% and the bonus damage is not applied.
Jhin's critical strikes deal 25% reduced damage, but grant 10% (+4% per 10% bonus attack speed) movement speed for 2 seconds.
Additionally, Jhin's attack damage is increased by 2% - 40% (based on level) (+4% per 10% critical chance) (+2.5% per 10% bonus attack speed).
This is Jhin's signature thing, his four bullets. The fourth one comes in really handy dandy when you want to oneshot that 100 hp Zed that has been killing you for the entirety of the game
Fleet Footwork: It comes in super handy when you want to kite someone or get a tiny bit of HP back. It also really helps when you're escaping from people like a Miss fortune or Lucian because that extra movement speed may save your life.
Triumph: The 12% HP may look like nothing but it comes in handy when you're doing a massive teamfight and when the enemy tries to take you down. E.g. The enemy jungler comes to gank you and you kill the enemy botlaner, normally you wouldn't heal that 12% but now you do
Legend: Alacrity: It really helps you because you get PERMANENT attack speed from this (that means PERMANENT AD)
Coup de Grace: This helps when that Miss fortune is on 200 hp and you have your 4th shot.
Celerity: Gives you extra MS (Movement Speed) and that movement speed is also AD (Darn this rune is complicated) But it is still one of the best runes there is!
Gathering Storm: You get free AD or AP from this, who would't want that? Plus it can help you when you're behind!
These are my recommendations for runes, of course you could go whatever fits you!
has a really strong laning phase if played correctly. He can clear waves really fast with his
and AA's. So in this chapter I'm going to talk about his laning phase.
This is the stage in the game where you want to AA/ Last hit a minion 3 times and shoot the 4th bullet at your enemy. The 4th bullet is great for harrass and for farming, so don't be afraid to use it on a minion if no enemy champion is nearby!
This is where you are beginning to get strong, so start going all in on your enemy to get some kills or/and a gold lead. What's also worth being mentioned is that you still need to farm in the mid game ( So dont focus on kills ). Instead of focusing on kills you could ask your jungler to do drake when it is up, you do this because drakes are alawys useful. Also place your in the river bush to root unexpecting enemies. A lot of people don't know this but the objective in the game called "League of Legends" is winning and not getting kills but still losing...
Just AA and you will be fine......JK!! Positioning is key in late and that should be your main goal ( BEING POSITIONED WELL IS KEY!!!!!!). Just stay at a safe range from the enemy and try to make use of your ultimate.
Some of the tricks with jhin that I found are:
AA = Auto Attack
AA + AA + AA +
+ AA, This is great for some level 1 damage.
, This is your
setup move, because you root the person for a free hit.
AA + + W + AA, Do this when someone is on a .
+ AA, If you land the root and the 4th bullet, you can dish out a lot of damage on to your enemy.
AA + AA + AA + (Support) Ability +
, this is useful in the laning phase.
AA + AA + AA +
+ AA. this is a standard root.
+ , When you cast
, you are locked in place except if you flash in the middle of the animation!
As you have to reload frequently, so I suggest doing your on the minions when you are out of bullets.
Later in the game you can use your and to farm, but now lets stick to the
If you are about to miss a minion you can AA or
to get it. If you are in tower and a minion is very low but you know you cant kill it, just AA and
at the same time to dish out some of that sweet damage to the enemy minion.
Jhin hasn't been touched :DDDDDDD
Jhin was not touched in this patch :D
Captive Audience Captive Audience
BUG FIX: No longer fails to play sound and animation if the trap is triggered in brush.
BUG FIX: The fourth shot now overrides Stormrazor item Stormrazor's guaranteed-crit damage modifier.
Base stats changed to the point where the only good ADC is Vayne or Caitlyn
