Hello Everyone this is Pink Stink and this is My Jax build and pretty much a guide on how to play him effectively... Jax is a very powerful character even after they nerfed him a bit He can really tear up a **********er 1v1 hell even 2v1 IF built and played right and no I'm not saying your gonna look at this build and **** your pants with your 2222-0 score next game I'm not guaranteeing that But i can guarantee an improvement in your play style and kill death ratio because we all know that is what its about. Okay! enough of me ranting on like i love to do Now its time to explain the build and add my little guide on playing him!
Okay Allow me to one-over the general theme of what I believe Jax is about in point form.
- HE IS NOT A TANK. The reason he is not a tank is that melee is reluctant of attacking him due to his aoe stun, which everyone knows he has. He has 0 CC (crowd control) unless he is being attacked.
- He is not burst. Why you ask? Because he has a warm up period that is discussed in his Ult passive and his other 2 abilities only do low amounts of AP (ability power) dmg.
- Jax's dps benefits the most from ATTACK SPEED but his survival comes from AD, HP, and MR. It is a combination of these 4 that will make Jax viable.
- Jax is an anti-melee fighter. Like veigar he can have a big problem with the opposite class.
- AD > AP. Sorry AP does not supply the lifesteal or the HP anymore.
Now onto his Spells!
Jax's prowess with weapons and armor increase his fortitude as he gains equipment:
Jax gains 4 health per point of Attack Damage received from items.
Jax gains 2 health per point of Ability Power received from items.
Leap Strike - Jax leaps toward a target. If it's an enemy, he smacks it in the face with his lamppost.
Jax leaps towards a target. If it's an enemy, he attacks it and deals an additional 50/75/100/125/150 (+0.8) magic damage.
Jax main ability used for opener finisher and Kser xD
Empower - Jax's charges his weapon with energy, causing his next attack to damage all nearby enemies.
Jax charges his weapon with energy, causing his next attack to deal 40/60/80/100/120 damage (plus 20% of his attack damage and ability power)to all nearby enemies.
Counter Strike - Jax's prowless allows him to dodge enemy attacks frequently. After avoiding an attack Jax can quickly stun surrounding enemies.
Passive: Increases Jax's dodge chance by 10/12/14/16/18%.
Active: Jax stuns surrounding enemies for 1 second and deals 80/100/120/140/160 (+0.6) magic damage to them.
Usable only within 7 seconds of dodging an attack.
Relentless Assault - Jax's greatest talent lies in his ability to grow stronger with every attack. Each successive attack increases his attack speed temporarily, and every 3rd blow will devastate his target.
Jax's basic attacks increase his attack speed by 6/10/14% for a short duration, and hitting the same unit 2 consecutive times enhances Jax's next attack for 140/170/210 (+0.7) bonus magic damage.
Attack speed stacks up to 10 times.
Now to start off the match we go withx2
Then we head down to start lanning
And this is when the fun starts!
You go down your lane don't be to pushy just stay back let your minions go in first get some levels.while occasionally leaping to push them back a bit but do not try to go for the kill as it will end up terrible because jax is not to great till about level 6
Anyways, Your gonna wanna stay in your lane till you can getWhich is gonna cost you 850 seeing on how you picked up Doran's shield for the boost in health armor and health regen
Then by then you should be about level 6 now it starts getting fun and you start getting them kills and more money. The next item you will be getting isorThis is depending on the situation your in if you are having troubles getting burned down go with Phange if not and you are doing pretty good health wise go with the Rageblade. Don't worry you will get Phange later on because you will be buildingAfter getting all that your gonna wanna go withThis is a MUST i mean a MUST for a successful jax with out this its pretty fail and to end off your item build i recommendAndI will be adding more on this build in the next day or so but right now i am hella hungry i got the mad munchies!
