Get Excited! (PASSIVE)
Jinx Passive Ability
Threats & Synergies
She's easy to poke, and pretty weak early on. She isn't really a threat.
Jhin and Corki are easy opponents, just watch out for Jhin's damage late in the game.
Kalista can be hard to hit due to her jump mechanic so play a bit safer around her to avoid getting poked and caught,
Kog is easy in lane until he get's ult which has an extremely long range. Try to bully him early and get ahead in farm and he shouldn't be a problem!
All these champions aren't too bad. Ashe is like you and doesn't have a good get away so use that to your advantage.
Against Vayne, be aware terrain and walls to avoid being stunned!
Tristana is a pretty even match, however she's hard to poke and can easily run away. Make sure you don't go chasing kills and bully her in cs numbers.
Again, Jinx doesn't have a great get away ability so try to be squirrely to avoid his shotgun splash damage.
Miss Fortune is a real pain due to her E and her Ult. Try to avoid getting caught by her barrage and poke her often.
Be squirrely and on the move constantly with Twitch and Varus. Twitch's slow causes DOT which can really hurt and make you have to recall. Varus' arrow has extreme range and his Ult is a pretty hefty stun so avoid being poked at all costs and play safe.
Ezreal's pokes are nasty and his teleports are even nastier which makes him both annoying and difficult to poke. Rather than using your W to poke, trap him with your [[Flame Chompers!]] and poke him with [[Fishbones the Rocket Launcher]]
Draven's stacks allow him to poke you quick and hard even with basic attacks so make sure he pays for catching his axes by laying down your E or poking him with your W
Lucian's speed and pokes hurt hard. He's a nasty match up for Jinx so play safe and try to beat him in the CS department. Zero kills and Zero Deaths is better than 3 Kills and 3 Deaths. Also remember that about 20 CS is the amount of gold a kill gives you. If you can beat Lucian early on in his CS you should be able to be him later on in the game
Sivir is almost impossible to poke with her shield and even harder to run away from with the movement speed she gains from her Ult. Be aware of her cooldowns on her shield and use her CD's against her. Poke her when you know her shield is down
Welcome to my Jinx guide!
I hope this information helps and is useful for anyone who wants to learn the basics of Jinx gameplay! She's an extremely fun champ to play who also happens to pack a lot of power!
+ Fantastic poke
+ Switcheroo! passive grants tons of attack speed
+ Great wave clear and poke damage
+ Really nice Attack Speed Bonus with her Pow-Pow, the Minigun
+ Ult causes tons of damage if well aimed
+ Really good passive to escape teamfights
+ Nice Stun spell
- Hard to master
- No escape spell
- Early mana problems
- Short range with Pow-Pow, the Minigun
- Loss of attack speed with Fishbones, the Rocket Launcher
Jinx receives massively increased Movement Speed and stacking Attack Speed whenever she damages an enemy champion, tower, or inhibitor that is then killed or destroyed within 3 seconds.
Your passive is your only real means of escape so use that to your advantage, if you can kill an enemy or a tower and you have opponents coming your way, kill them and make a break for it!
Jinx modifies her basic attacks by swapping between Pow-Pow, her minigun and Fishbones, her rocket launcher. Attacks with Pow-Pow grant Attack Speed, while attacks with Fishbones deal area of effect damage, gain increased range, and drain Mana.
Jinx swaps weapons.
Pow-Pow, the Minigun:
Basic attacks grant bonus Attack Speed for 2.5 seconds. This effect stacks up to 3 times for a total bonus of % (bonus scales with spell rank and Jinx's level). Stacks fall off one at a time and only benefit Jinx's first attack after switching to Rocket Launcher.
Fishbones, the Rocket Launcher:
Basic attacks deal 110% Damage to the target and nearby enemies, gain 75/100/125/150/175 range, drain Mana, and scale 25% less with bonus Attack Speed.
Cost: 20 Mana per Rocket
Your Pow-Pow, the Minigun is the damage of your kit. Use it to melt down opponents' health to quickly trigger your passive Get Excited!
Jinx uses Zapper, her shock pistol, to fire a blast that deals damage to the first enemy hit, slowing and revealing it.
Jinx fires a shock blast that deals 10/60/110/160/210 (+140% Attack Damage) Physical Damage to the first enemy hit, revealing it if it is not stealthed and slowing it by 30/40/50/60/70% for 2 seconds.
Cost: 50/60/70/80/90 Mana
Jinx throws out a line of snare grenades that explode after 5 seconds, lighting enemies on fire. Flame Chompers will bite enemy champions who walk over them, rooting them in place.
Jinx tosses out 3 chompers that, once armed, explode on contact with enemy champions, rooting the target for 1.5 seconds and dealing 80/135/190/245/300 (+100% Ability Power) Magic Damage over 1.5 seconds to nearby enemies. Chompers last for 5 seconds.
Cost: 50 Mana
Super Mega Death Rocket!:
Jinx fires a super rocket across the map that gains damage as it travels. The rocket will explode upon colliding with an enemy champion, dealing damage to it and surrounding enemies based on their missing Health.
Jinx fires a rocket that gains damage over the first second it travels. It explodes on the first enemy champion hit, dealing 25/35/45 (+10% bonus Attack Damage) to 250/350/450 (+100% bonus Attack Damage) Physical Damage plus 25/30/35% of the target's missing Health. Nearby enemies take 80% Damage.
Cost: 100 Mana
For your secondary summoner spell I would recommend either Heal or Ignite
Heal: I would recommend heal for summoners who aren't quite settled with Jinx's abilities yet. Heal offers Jinx beginners a lot of room for mistake or sticky situations that may happen due to Jinx's immobility/squishiness
Ignite: Ignite is great for the intermediate Jinx main who's ready to get crazy. Ignite is helpful when going against a lane that you know is going to be tough to poke and it's especially helpful in early game against a bully to help you get the advantage and pick up a kill or two before you hit level 6. In mid to late game, ignite is great for helping take down fleeing opponents when your Super Mega Death Rocket! is on cooldown.
