Scyrine's Experimental AP trap Jhin guide

By Scyrine
Hey everyone!

Today i'm going to be going over AP Jhin that focuses on trap placement and bursting down the opponent with AP abilities. In this guide i'll explain where to specifically place traps and abuse jhin's AP characteristics.
Pros / Cons Back to Top

Although Jhin could struggle with this AP build, it works quite well once you get used to it. His E damage scales really high and his Q scaled with his AP also. Scroll down to see trap placements and where to place them for an advantage
Trap Placements Back to Top

Trap Placements In Lane

These are the best in-lane trap placements. you want to place them near the bushes so the enemy laner can walk into it. Immediatley after that you should try to hit your W.

Trap Placements for Ganks

these are the other placements I would put my traps in lane. When you're going to play agro or expect a gank from enemy jungle, place the traps in these specific positions. After that, if you have a chance try to hit your W and play agro into it.
Conclusion Back to Top
Although this Jhin build isn't necessarily the best for jhin, it's always good to try something new maybe in draft or somewhere to experiment. I've won several games using this AP build and in teamfights where it might seem useless, placing a trap where the enemy is slows them and eventually does damage. hope everyone enjoyed the guide!
