Threats & Synergies
She usually win the early for her Q, but after your first back you can easy start to poke her with rockets
HOW TO USE Q
Most of the Jinx i see, can't switch their q. That's the FIRST reason of losts.
If you are near an enemy, you are supposed to use POWPOW (the minigun) because you have more attack speed for the passive, so you can give more AA in less time=you steal more life in less time.
Instead, Fishbones (rocketlauncher) is supposed to be used when you are far away from you enemy and you want to poke. In the late game you will pratically only use Fishbones, because its less attack speed is offset by the fact that you are full build, so you will have more damage (also AoE) and more range to hit like 3 enemies at the same time with the runaan.
In early, before you buy Runaan, you should only farm with POWPOW, because it uses a lot of mana and u will probably need it to use e and w for an engage or to block an enemy gank.
HOW TO USE W
If you have stunned an enemy, it would be good to slow him with W right after the stun finished, so you can easily kill him without let him escape.
FOR GOD SAKE never use your W when an enemy is near you hitting you.
It has a LOT of damage, infact it has its basic dmg(+1.4 AD) but you will usually use it only when someone is escaping and you are winning the fight, not when someone is right on you to kill you.
HOW TO USE E
First of all, remember that it is your only way to protect yourself and it has a lot of CD so be careful on its use.
Second, when you place your traps, they take 0.5 second to activate, so you should predict a bit where to place them o they will be useless.
In fight they are very useful because in the mess, usually nobody see them.
HOW TO USE R
You will probably think about your R, most of the times, as a way to SECURE your kills.
It has more dmg when the enemy has less life, so never use it before the enemy has more than 40% of his HP.
You also must remember that the R increase its damage after 1 second of time since it's been shooted, so you obviously mustn't be right in your enemy's mouth, or it will do LESS damage than one AA.
