Hey guys, I'm AchetezDuLait, and welcome in my Jax Jungle Build Guide! I'm a LoL player since Season 6. Jax is my main since Season 7. I'm also Jungler main. I've decided to make a guide to show you guys what I've learned about him.

Hope you guys enjoy!

All you will need with Jax Jungle is health ans damages. Jax can 1v1 almost all the champions in League or Legends, but if you don't care of your health, you're just going to die stupidly. Jax is easy to play ans deals lots or damages... That's why I recommend you to play it Jungle.


+ Can 1v1 almost all the champions
+ Can tank a lot with Grandmaster's Might
+ Very strong late game
+ Has a built-in escape with +
+ Damage Dealer

- Can be killed with CC
- Hard to get back in the game if behind
- Difficult matchups sometimes in drafts
- Can be hard to play in teamfights
- He has a street lamp instead of a weapon

As a Jungler, is essential. Use it in early game to kill monsters and gain life and during mid game and late game against your opponents to reduce their damages and to inflict them burning status.

This Summoner Spell is the best and most useful spell of the game. You can use it to escape through walls when you are in an unfavourable position or to get a takedown when an enemy is low but far from you.

This Summoner Spell is a good alternative to ; use it on wards, minions and towers to go and help your teammates almost instantly ; or you can also use to teleport to your spawn by the transit of a close tower if you are ina bad position.

You can replace or by Ignite if you think it is better. Honnestly, I never take Ignite because I think that Challenging Smite is better especially if you are playing Jax as a Jungler. However, I thought it could be good to give you some ideas...

PRECISION :Improve your attack speed by 9%
Attack Speed is very important on Jax so...

INSPIRATION :Doubles the bonus of the other rune class.
Combined to PRECISION, you gain a bonus of +18% of Attack Speed.

Relentless Assault :Every time Jax attacks an enemy he gains 3.5-11% increased attack speed for 2.5 seconds. The percentage is increased every 3 levels. This effect stacks up to 8 times and will still stack if the attack is dodged or misses due to blind.
I recommend you to hit minions (or jungle creatures) many times to get the attack speed boost before launching an attack on your opponents.

Leap Strike :Jax leaps towards a target. If it's an enemy, he attacks, dealing 65 / 105 / 145 / 185 / 225 (+60% of ability power) (+1.0 per bonus attack damage) physical damage.
Use this ability to get on enemy easily and quickly, dealing damages ; or to escape from a complicated situation by targeting minions, or plants or anything (except towers).

Empower :Jax charges his weapon with energy, causing his next attack to gain 50 range and deal 40 / 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 (+60% of ability power) additional magic damage.
This ability is very powerful ; a low cooldown and a lot of damages dealed. You just have to spam against monsters or opponents.
Tip : wait for a basic attack and press immediately your [W] key to get a second attack instantly.

Counter Strike :Jax dodges all incoming basic attacks for 2 seconds and reduces AoE damage by 25% while he is dodging. At the end of the duration, Jax deals 55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+0.5 bonus attack damage) physical damage to nearby enemies and stuns them for 1 second. This spell deals 20% (up to a maximum of 100%) increased damage for each attack dodged. Jax has the option to activate the ability again after 1 second to end the effect early.
One more time, you can use this ability to escape or to attack. If you are chasing an opponent, and that you are scared of him to you can press [E] again 1 second after pressing it to stun your opponent quickly. On the contrary, if someone is chasing you, you can stun him, and you will be safe.

Grandmaster's Might :
Passive: Hitting 3 consecutive times enhances Jax's next attack for 100 / 140 / 180 (+70% of ability power) bonus magic damage.
Active: Jax gains 30 / 50 / 70 (+50% of his bonus attack damage) armor and 30 / 50 / 70 (+20% of his ability power) magic resist for 8 seconds.

Honestly, Jax's ultimate is really powerful. First, his passive will make you dealing lots of damages, and then, his active will make you become a tank from American Army! You will become very bulky so pushing will be easier.



















+ Ward + Q :
Use this combination to escape from opponents.
Tip: As you surely understood, Oracle Lens is very useless on Jax

+ => E + Q => E :
Press E first, then Q on your opponent, and after that repress E to stun him IMMEDIATELY.

+ Q + W :
Press W first, then Q on your opponent, and he will take several damages. You can combine this with the second trick.



Magic Resistance

Attack Damage

Ability Power


Trinity Force, power of the gods.
The best and most important item for Jax, as Jungler or Toplane. It gives you EVERYTHING you need: damages, attack speed, some mana (good when you are toplane or nice even for Jax Jungle at lategame, health (which is always good), movement speed, quite nice when you have to reach your opponent with you Leap Strike but that he is still too far, and cooldown reduction, which is according to my view, one of the best boosts you can get in the game.

Titanic Hydra, Titan's weapon
This item is very interesting on Jax because, first, it gives Health, which always a good thing(especially on Jax during late game), and also some zone damages, which is such a nice thing in teamfights, because you deal some cheap damages on almost everyone.

Finally, Jax is a very good champion... You can play as Jungler or Toplane, he is still very strong and easy to play. None of his abilities are diffiult to understand or anything.
I'm sorry if this guide is not finished right now... :'(
