Threats & Synergies
Draven is a full counter of jinx you sould only poke him when he grabs his q and avoid all fights against him alone.
Ezreal can be a little dangerous in early with his e+q, then in late if you win your lane this threat is reduced.
A multi infinity edge jhin is extremly dangerous for jinx so play safe and stack with q or w.
Kai'sa have a huge burst on you. In this case you just stay safe and scale for late and stack safely.
For MF you just need to say how her supports move,the avoid all q and go away from her ultimate then in late you can crush her.
For ashe just stack and when your support cc she put an e+w combo and can be a sure kill if she not have any summoner on.The problem can be over level 6 when she engage with ulti.If she have a good early, scale for late
For Lucian the major risk is when he angage at level 3+, his combo can kill you in few seconds,to caunter him and stack safely just wait your support for an engage and put e under him.Late is lesser than early against him.
When you face a caitlyn the risk his taked by her support,the she can do a full combo against you,the suggest is avoid any support engage and stack safely.Late against she is more easy after you complete infinity edge,critical hit and draktar.
For tristana you can go to stack by engage her support,if you have a winning early you can get she with lesser difficult than in a normal lane.For late watch out on her combo,that can kill you anyway.
A lane with varus seems easy but it become dangerous when he reaches 6 and hard counters you with r,your goal is take advantage in early to delete the threat.
A lane against vayne is dangerous,you are costatle threated,by her q and by her potential engage after level 6,your aim is punish she when comes too much near you and then use your e to secure an engage by your support.You must avoid all 1v1 vs she,if you are fed you can kill she.
Lane against xayah is dangerous when she build 100% critical hit chane and boots you with her e,so you should focus she in lane and in teamfights.
Kog'Maw not have so much mobility so when your supp engage him put e and w him and you get him.The reisk become major when he gets fed or when he finish core items.
For twich you should watch out when he ults yo cause can kill you easly,but he can be countered by a grab or a boot by your e.
When you are with a blitz is theorically a winning lane, cause when he grabs and knockup your target ,you put your e near him and is a free kill,in contrary case you can just stack safely and wait a good engage.
Same For Thresh, wait an engage and the combo to the rest and you have a mobility bonus by his w wich can reposition you istantly or safe in a bad situation.
For leona is a well lane phase cause her engage can be very usefull to stack your rune spell and after 6 you can go all in with she.
A lane with morgana is well bcs when se boot your target you have the time to put your e on target and get the kill,more too you have a shield which protect you against cc spells.
Normally a lane with lulu in another rune set is the best,but for dark harvest rune is less effective with a normal rune set,but she can save you in bad situation with shields,speed bonus and ulti
A lane with sona is good cause she can heal you and ger q add you ap damage bonus to hit one target,use it at your advantage.When she ults put e and w,if the target not die use ulti.
Lane with pyke is very good cause he grab and stuns target for you,the work you just do is only boot the target with e and get the kill.
Champion Build Guide
I will be as clear as possible to explain you how this build works.
This Build is made to get advangate in early with the dark harvest rune path which opens you an arly scaling and a possible oneshots caused by the critical hits that can touch over 1600 of damage.I created and tested this build personally for months and it can be used in ranked too,i suggest to use it only you feel ready to use it or it can be a disaster for you,i warned it.
Main Aim of this build:
Your main Goal with Dark Harvest is stack,stack and stack to scale for the next time of the game,so when an enemy is under 50% of his health use your rocket or zap to collect the soul.
In addition of damage bonus of items your ultimate is boosted by the cd reduced of 35%(cause you have the rune ultimate hunter which reduce it by 25% and duskblade which reduce it by a 10%)and the damage(yes lethality is calculated in ultimate)boosted is an enemy is under 50% of his hp,generally if you are at 12+ stacks you can oneshot him at mid distance(like distance between the allied and enemy turrets) and at 20+ you can kill at lower distances,always if he is under 50% of his hp.
Avoid to be engaged by assasins like Zed,Talon,Pyke and Sylas,they can snowball you,you can try to disengage by putting your e near your feet and run,if the enemeies get booted,attack him with your ability combos(e+aa+w+q)or(e+w+r+aa)depends on the situation.When you have the rapid firecannon up you can poke them to try to trigger dark harvest and them finish him with ultimate.
w+Flash summoner spell: when you are treated by a cc,like grabs,booting morgana balls or sonas ulti you ca disengage by usingg w and in the same time use the flash to another position,so the zap hit go in the same direction before you are using flash
r+Flash summoner spell: this trick have the same role of w+e
e+w:Use your mines and in the same time use w to secure a snare,then attack him
-Avoid to overextend in lane to stack souls,if u feel in danger recall
-After you get a kill or a tower not waste passive to circle for nothing,use it for escape or to kill someone
-Stay sticked with your support,the build works if you and your support are near
-As i said up support have a huge influence in your lane,especially in lane phase,if he is filled or not isn't in fit or he simply flames you,mute him and stack safely
This is all,the build if used in the correct mode can be usefull in team and in ranked too. Therefore i greet you and jinx'em all.
