With the change in meta to tanky top lane solos Jax has found a new home top lane vs these match ups. Jax is an amazing counter to lane udyr and lane Warwick. He beats both in lane and is stronger end game.
I try to stay in lane until I can grab wriggles plus boots.
I only go dodge boots on jax if the enemy team only has one hard cc. If they have anymore than that stick to the mercs.
I build the pick axe portion of gunblade first due to the slow being amazing for following up leap strike combos. I finish hextech and
Grab rage blade.
Once you have these items your
Core is done and anything else is luxury. If you are having trouble living then build tanky if not then grab dps items.
I max e last it is a one point wonder.
Refer to the link below for jax skill info and other things.
Until you can get wriggles and Boots so focus on that cs!
Once you have wriggles and boots you can go far more aggressive.
Vs melée walk up autoattack w then auto again to harass. Vs range press w then leap strike to the enemy and then run back.
If you are ganked don't forget you can Leapstrike to your own minions toGet away.
Before engaging on some one auto attack minions to build up you ultimates stacks. This way you can go crazy on them when you leapstrike to them.
Once Jax has hex and wriggles you can usually 2 man baron so drop a pink ward on baron and grab an early baron.
