Champion Build Guide
Jax is a fundamentally simple champion. However, being fundamentally simple means that it relies more on game knowledge and base mechanics. The outplay potential Jax brings is more about mind-games of his counter strike, not fancy dancing around like Fiora/Akali.
Basic knowledge of Jungle paths, awareness of the enemy jungler's pathing, and proper keystone/itemization are key. Use this guide for the itemization and keystones.

In the jungle, you'll start most camps with AA + Empower + Counter Strike. You want to use your W to reset your auto attack animation, and immediately start using Counter Strike as well. Your counter strike is not dependent upon your auto attacks, which means you can start it in the middle of an auto and it won't cancel the auto.
