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.
Why would you choose jax?
- I choose jax because jax is a great deal of damage!
- Jax is a great group fighter because of his Counter Strike and, Empower! There both AOE (area of effect)
First you want to get boot get boots of speed and two health potions.
I usully get Ninja tabi's first but if you want to do more damage early you should go with the Guinsoo's Rageblade. After getting your second item you need to get phantom dancers, i say get this becasue you need some attack speed with jax. I only say that for his ult, if you have some attack speed then you Rip other champs to shreds! Next you are going to want to get a Bloodthirster, you want one of these so that you can have some damage and also some attack damage. After getting that you want to buy rylai's crystal scepter, you want this item for the health and also the ap, ap is good for jax. And finally you want to get zhonya's ring, of corse you need more ap!
Exhaust: I say you use exhaust because its great from: fighting, running, and chaseing.
Ignite: Ignite is great for last hits on other champions, or if the other champ has low hp you can tower dive and put ignite on the other champ! So you should always go with ignite if you are looking for a second spell to use.
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.
Cost 65/65/65/65/65 Mana
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 an additional 40/60/80/100/120 (0.2 + ) magic damage to all nearby enemies.
Cost 35/35/35/35/35 Mana
Counter Strike - Jax's prowess 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.
Cost 60/60/60/60/60 Mana
Relentless Assault - Jax's greatest talent lies in his ability to grow stronger with every attack. Successive attacks 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. Additionally, every two attacks enhances Jax's next attack for 140/170/210 (+0.7) bonus magic damage.
Attack speed stacks up to 10 times.
Equipment Mastery - Jax's prowess with weapons and armor increase his fortitude as he gains equipment:
Jax gains 3 health per point of Attack Damage received from items.
Jax gains 2 health per point of Ability Power received from items.
Begining of the game:
Jax is an ok fighter at the begining but he is not the best. So what you want to do is taunt. When i say taunting with jax, i am saying have Empower ready before you Leap to them, then Leap and u get 2 good hits in then run. You are going to want to do this until you get your second item. You need to get lots of last hits on minions so that you can get your good exp, plus your good gold. Because if you have your gold you can get your items to start killing people easily.
At this point it should be 11-14 minutes in the game. Right now you should start ganking into the other lanes This is the time were Jax begins to get op. He cant completely shred there health yet but he can do some good damage. Meaning dont get to greedy and start tower diveing yet! If you have full health and they have barley any health then go ahead, just do it quick! The items you will have at this point should be Ninja tabi's, And guinsoo's rageblade. And now you should be going for the Phantom Dancers. When you get Phantom Dancers you should be able to run faster and kill faster.
End of the game:
It is time! If you have all of your items you should be able to shred there health very easily! When i say shred there health im meaning 5-6 hit people that has 2000 hp! The end of the game is why i play jax!
Well have fun and hope the build helps!
