Hello summoners! My name is Totalplank, and this is my guid to Jax! A little about myelf, I've played League of Legends since the start of season 2 and I would like to think I know quite a lot about the game. I've played every role extensively, and I have found that my best role is probably in the top lane. I used to love jax before his rework, with hundreds of dodges, but after his rework, I stopped playing him for a while. I started playing him again with his new E mechaninc, and I still find his a great solo top and fantastic for Solo-Q. I'm Currenly Gold 4, and I'm hoping for Platinum by the end of season 4. Jax recently received a nerf to his base damage, armor, health and magic resist, but I still believe he is very good, although his early game isn't quite as strong. But this does free him up in ranked games, because previously he was a perma ban in middle ELO games. I hope you enjoy my guide, and if you do, remember to give it a thumbs up! If you have any questions or faults, please let me know if the comments. This is my first guide, so any help on laying this out, would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
What Does Jax Do?
Jax is a an Off-Tank Semi-Carry, who excels at sustained fights, tanking and dealing a surprising amount of burst in lane. He has great dueling potential with his kit, but is quite item reliant. He is a lane bully versus almost anyone apart from Ranged Casters like Ryze or lissandra, but he can beat them in a straight up fight with not many issues. He has a great Mid and late game, being able to split push brilliantly and then participate in fights. He can also destroy baron and dragon once he has a BOTRK.
Pros / Cons
Great at split pushing
Great lane precense
Great Burst with Sheen Q W Ulti
Hybrid Damage so hard to counter with items
Great chase and escape
Item reliant (Requires Tri-force and BOTRK to become effective in mid game)
Countered hard CC
Can be bursted by assassins
Overall, Jax is a great sustain damage dueler, who can easily take objectives and also teamfight. He's really the whole package. A very solid pick for any team.
