By Sentimental
Hello my name is Sentimental and this is my guide on Jayce top lane the goal of the guide is to help people learn playing top lane with [jayce]] correctly.

I Started playing league of legends at 2012 playing mostly mid lane Zed and jungle Kha'Zix then i started playing top lane Jayce i was fascinated with how damn good intense and hard that lane and champion was and still is today that's why i kept playing.Now with the release of the new rune system Runes Reforged i want to help people play the champions i enjoy playing.

Manaflow Band
  • Manaflow Band: Jayce has always been a mana hungry champion this rune helps you kinda overcome that problem with the 250 extra mana and the extra mana regen.

  • Transcendence: Cooldown Reduction is essential for early kills,and ofc that extra bit of AP/AD.

  • Scorch:You basicly have a few extra burning damage all game and great for poking early.

Sudden Impact

Ravenous Hunter
Pros / Cons

+ Strong early game
+ Long range poke
+ Good mobility
+ High dmg throughout the game


- Difficult learning curve
- Weak from behind
- Some mana issues
- Can't frontline
Your first core item will be Youmuu's Ghostblade. This item is good for Jayce because it provides extra AD which he really needs. It also grants some extra cooldown which will come in handy. Your 2nd item will be Duskblade of Draktharr. This is really strong on him as it grants cooldown and added damage. The multiple passives on this item make him much stronger as well. Remember to buy boots beforehand and have them upgraded as your 3rd item. Your 4th item will be Black Cleaver. This item will give us max CDR and allow us to be a little bit stronger because of the health it gives us. Your final items will be Edge of Night- for team fights (remember to use the passive). Followed by Guardian Angel.

Jayce is a champion whos itemization can be swapped out for other items depending on what you need. You can also change Black Cleaver to be your 2nd item instead of 4th if you wish.
Summoner Spells
Flash is the best summoner around and should be taken every game. Flash provides an instant result that can be used to engage, disengage or even escape. This summoner is the best in the game.

I recommend taking Teleport because it gives you global map pressure. This summoner spell allows you to help other lanes, get back to lane quicker or even used to escape. I recommend using teleport on your first back, then saving it to help counter gank lanes.

I do not recommend taking Ignite (Only In Mid) or Exhaust, however you can if you wish. If you are comfortable in killing your enemy laner then you can take either one. You will be missing out on the global map pressure but you will have dominance over enemies who take Teleport.
Jayce is best against melee champions and enemies who are squishy. In the early game levels 1-3 you want to poke as much as possible and abuse your range to the fullest. If you’re versus tank champions such as Dr. Mundo, Nautilus or Maokai you want to be poking the enemy with your auto’s and abilities as often as possible. Level 1 you want to push for the level 2 advantage, and try your best to deal as much damage to the enemy as possible- you really need to poke them down so you can have an easier laning phase and get ahead. When you’re against a fighter or somebody who can beat you or go equal, you need to play slightly more defensive but still aggressive.

Your main job is to farm up and try to deny the enemy as much as possible, your abilities deal lots of damage and you have a lot of burst as well. Make sure to abuse this. Remember that Jayce’s abilities cost can be quiet high and that does add up when you for a combo. If you have your level peaks and enough mana you can go for a greedy combo and try to burst the enemy down. W+Q+E+R+Q+E is an example combo.
Mid Game/Late Game
In the Midgame and team fights you want to poke as much as possible.

Jayce isn’t good in team fights…….Well. Not exactly bad, he just can’t straight fight 5v5. Your job is to poke as much as possible before the game starts. You can use your Q+E / E + Q Combo and poke them down as much as possible. Your job is just to keep poking and trying to get the enemy low before going for a fight. Remember, do not go out of mana and keep enough up for your other abilities.

Jayce is very good at taking down towers. You want to rotate around the map and start taking the towers. If your team is grouped mid, you should look to split push and be prepared to Teleport and help your team. Always watch the map when you’re split pushing.

In the final stages of the game Jayce will fall off. In fights, like before-you need to poke down the enemies and catch the squishies. You can easily win the game by a few good poke opportunities.
Thanks again for taking the time to read my guide about how to climb elo with Jayce and I hope I answered everyones questions and concerns they may of had whether before or after reading this.
