Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Pre-warning, kind of a rough quick build, more to come for now basic guide
My jax, the nom nom monster.
We can all enter a practice game and read abilities so i'm not going to waste my time listing them. starting with items
start off by buyingand 1. You will be selling dorans sheild later to complete any item you barely cant finish, up to you.
buildasap nothing like a good pair of wheels.
has the most priority, if you stay in lane long enough to build it before tabai do so. Rage blade is essentially your only core item, you can build almost anything after it and still be powerful as jax.
now that you have ninja tabai and guinsoo's rage blade its time to star building. Once you haveget a, at any time if you have the extra cash grab a. Buyif you are behind and jungle up buffs.
now that you have your first bf sword you can do reasonable damage. getfor frozen mallet. that slow will allow you to really keep down your enemies.
After phage upgrade to.
after blood thirster upgrade to
then buy your bf sword and save up for.
bot is your lane as jax, kill dragon as much as possible, helps your team gain that extra edge of xp and gold. also eat the bot side buffs as much as possible, gives you that extra power that you need to steam roll your lane.
This is jax's only weak point you basically gotta rely on harassment once your enemy is low enough just leap strike and exhaust, having counter strike ready before you leap will secure the kill. so farm as much as you can until the perfect opportunity shows its beautiful little face. do not waste your exhaust or cleanse, you may need them to seal the kill or escape as needed. patience is your virtue for 1-6.
now that you should have your guinsoo's and hopefully zeal its time to start ganking, keeping mid on its back will ensure your teams victory. A well pushed mid is very hard to recover from. DO NOT RELY ON MID essentially mid is the weakest lane, when you forget your mia call it can turn the game for the worse, make frequent stops at mid and try to get into team fights early. Leaving the stragglers alone and prime for the ganking(your specialty). remember killing
once you have your life steal jax is extremely efficient at killing neutrals, remember hog them buffs and dragon further feeding you and your team, all about gaining the advantage. Always remember to be there for your team mates, nothing sucks more than a selfish carry.
Now that your items are coming together you are capable of destroying towers, after a team fight break off and push another lane, but keep an eye on your enemies death timer.
all about the push, encourage your team to baron often, as soon as possible. Once again having monopoly of the buffs makes it much easier for your team to "steam roll" your enemies for all those delicious influence points.
as jax you want to go in early, just after your tanks to hurt squishies. once a couple squishies have been knocked out their team will fall apart.
yes jax is op, yes he is easy to play. These things I don't care about, my goal is simple win the match and a well played jax will win matchs.
