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.
This is my First build at Mobafire so plz be nice for me ^_^
i hope you'll gonna like it :D
Masteries- If you want put out more damage, go for offensive masteries, if you want more survivability go for the defensive masteries. I use offensive when my team is has enough tanks that the extra defenses are not needed. If my team is squishy, I'll go for defensive. The same goes for starting items. Any of the three dorans items are a good choice, each with differences. If it looks like the other team is gonna harass and do a lot of damage, go with the dorans shield. If it looks like you can auto-attack without heavy harassment, go dorans blade. If you and your laning partner have the ability to do good harassment, go for dorans ring. The extra AP and mana regen let you spam Leap Empower combo's, which can take away a good quarter of your enemies health.
RunesAs for runes, you can either go with AP marks. For Seals, damage synergizes really well with your E, so those are a necessity. For glyphs i chose mana regen because i like to spam my skills, allowing for longer output, or the ability to leap on that one guy running away for the kill. That's why i chose mana regen cuz, it happens much times that i didn't have enough mana to leap on him... Flat dodge quintessences because i have found myself running away from so many fights >Dodged all the attacks (maybe not all) But i survive many times. :)
Item ChoiceDorans's (Shield, Blade, Ring)- Gives great starting health, and depending on which one nice AP/Armor/AD, as well as lifesteal/health regen/ mana regen
Health Potion- You'd be stupid to not get one at the start. Allows you to lane longer.
Ninja Tabi- Nice cheap boots, they give nice armor as well as needed dodge. With your E at rank one and these boots and your masteries and your seals you have a good amount of dodge so you can get off some nice stuns, without needing something like a phantom dancer.
Guinsoo's RageBlade- Absolutely key item for Jax. Synergizes extremely well with your ulti, getting you up to 10 and 8 stacks easily, adding AP along the way. The AD and AP it also gives you some nice health from your passive.
Malady: The new malady is actually pretty good for jax. 25 AP and 50% Attack speed are nice, but it's passive is great. It shreds enemy magic resistance, so if you find that your enemies are building some magic resist, this is a good buy. Another item to consider if they're building magic resist is a Void Staff, good AP and it makes 40% of their magic resist go away.
Hextech Gunblade- Excellent item, especially after the patch that buffed it. Great AD and AP, and the 20% lifesteal and 20% spell vamp return quite a bit of health. It's active serves as a nice extra spell/slow.
Atma's Impaler: Because of Jax passive, (gets health by AD and AP) he has a great amount of health. That's why i chose Atma's Impaler. It get 2% of yur health away and changes the health into AD, and because of that AD you get health again cuz of yur passive. So you get a great amount AD without giving yur health away. :)
Leap-Empower: This will be your main combo from lvl 3 onwards. It allows you to jump on someone and deal a ton of damage with just one move. It's very simple. Just activate empower and then use leap on your target, and bam you fly through the air to hit them with an empowered staff, and because empower resets your auto-attack timer, you get an extra auto-attack as well. This is a combo you can repeat every 3.5 seconds, and in those seconds you're auto attacking and stunning like a champ. Chances are you'll get CC'd, or they'll start to attack you because they realize you're decimating their team. If you do find yourself getting focused (Odds are you will be), leap outa there and then run back in if they stop chasing you. But still. *******. When you attack 2 times a second, in 5 seconds you can just devastate a squishy. So that's the power of leap-empower.
Early Game- Start out with your choice of a Dorans item and a health pot. head down your chosen lane. Try to get a lane with someone who can disable, or harass with you. Supports are always nice too. I personally love to lane with Fiddle, Sona, and Rammus. Shen and Sion are fun too. Focus your attention on farming last hits, and once you hit lvl 3 just start doing leap-empower combos on the squishiest enemy, hopefully forcing them to go back. Don't get too aggressive, because they will kill you if you try to get them under the tower, unless they have like 100hp and you can just flash away. Once you hit level six, farm like a boss and really go for kills.The first time you go back you should have a kill or two, or at least enough gold to buy full boots and a blasting wand. If you only have enough for boots, pick up a ward or two. Put them in strategic places, by buffs, or if you want to get fancy, in places you could leap too as a get away, like in the bushes by the enemy tower.
Mid-Game- Lane as long as you want, but as soon as team action starts, go right to your team. Try and run around ganking, and in team fights always focus the squishy. Leap-empower in then run out, or keep beating on them if there team allows it. Focus on getting enough money for Guinsoo's and hextech, and go for lizard and golem whenever they're up, especially the enemies. You can take down Golem, Lizard, and Dragon really fast after you have guinsoo's. Backdoor if you can, you are a champ tower killer and taking down one or two towers can really help your team push.
Late Game- At this point you should have most of your items, at least guinsoo's, hextech gunblade, and nashor's. Focus on wrecking the squishies in fights (Leap-empower should take away anywhere from 1/4-1/2 or more of their health, especially to champions like veigar and ezreal), and stunning whenever you can. Put up wards at buffs, and wait to see if you can gank enemies there. One match i got 4 kills from doing that, it was pretty sweet. After you have nashor's you pretty much should have won the match, unless of course the other team is better than you and is wrecking.
Things you must NOT do
- Never initiate. You will die if you initiate a team fight. You are an assassin, to fly out of bushes and the mists to 2 hit their casters, not someone to take the brunt of the damage. The only time you should every initiate is perhaps for a gank, or if it's 1v1 and you know where the other 4 team members are.
- Don't think you're invincible. I have this problem. All too often I do crazy things like running at fights my head knows I can't win, or chasing people way to far. Try to be cautious. Don't do stupid things. Yes you have a stun but you can't stun constantly, and if they slow you chances are their team will jump on you and you will die.
I really really like this build cuz my teammates always ask me to come :)
In the beginning i played LoL i always losed...
i didn't know what char was meaned for me, but then... Jax! (\(^_^)/)
