Intro
Hello.
Early Game Back to Top
So basically your whole kit is based around that thing I refer to as your W (or ). It roots and allows your ADC to do damage, and you can also join in and pretend to do damage (which has the same effect as a fly headbutting your arm - something you will notice, but also not really care about).

Landing is a necessity to playing this champion in any position, so you better get used to it.

Playing around a "bad" ADC
ADC isn't the most interesting role to play, so some people get a little bored while playing it. Often times, the reason for your ADC flaming everyone (as they do) is because they either don't know their champion or they don't feel that you aren't doing enough in lane - and I will be the first to say: yes, I saw that play, it was bullsh*t and there really wasn't anything you could have done to counter it. And no, it has nothing to do with the champion you are playing, the enemies are just both the #1 ADC and Support on Oceanic.

Anyways, if you start falling behind in lane (in either kills or CS - or both) then there are a few things you can do to actually salvage the lane (or even the rest of the game if you're feeling spicy). Right, so first, if you're laner is down 40 CS or more, that's an obvious problem. If the problem is that they just don't know how to last hit because they just installed the game and are playing on a trackpad on a 1980's laptop salvaged from the scar left behind by Cherynoble, then there actually is a solution to this (and ONLY do this if your laner explicitly gives you some bs excuse about how they can't farm). Basically, just farm for them, so that the CS isn't just wasted. If this pisses them off, too bad, they shouldn't be in a position of financial ruin. Not your fault.

Falling behind in kills is a bit harder to recover from, though. But, who cares ultimately. You are playing Jhin. So when the jungler or even the mid-laner starts flaming the both of you for being 0-12, just say, and I quote, "At least we have team fights to look forward to!" Trust me, it works every time and the other members on your team will finally leave you alone. Well, up until the team fights when your ADC does -12 AD. At least they tried...right...?
"The Team Fights" Back to Top
If you don't have any form of engage, you will have to be the one to carry that burden, so watch out for that when your team is locking in. Generally, an engage will be started by your ADC (assuming that they aren't playing f*cking Yasuo) throwing a skill-shot or landing a cheeky auto-attack on an enemy. Then, you follow up with that one ability you use - you know, .

As a precursor (and I'm just too lazy to scroll up slightly and type it a little farther up) You should probably tell your team (if you are the one with the best engage on your team) that you will be making engages. This is ACTUALLY IMPORTANT.

If you somehow tank a little too much damage during a team fight, at least you have that other useless ability to use and pretend to deal damage with, often referred to as .
Final Words Back to Top
Jhin Tank is probably one of the best options for support right now. I can't tell you why, because if I did then I would most likely give away all of the secrets given to me by the gods.

Also if you see a Jhin support in your game (maybe even on the enemy team), just make sure you tell them that you are better than them because you read this guide and they probably didn't.

On the other side of the coin, if someone is to be so rude as to assume that you haven't read this guide, just reply saying "LmAO/?"


Anyways, have a good day/night/afternoon/evening, and good luck learning this amazing new support.
