I know he's a hybrid. I've gone off-tank for awhile with Jax, but I'm alot better as a total support.
Here's the thing, I love Jax. I usually support w/ Ali, but i LOVE Jax.
So. Support Jax I want to makes. Nice things like Runic Bulwark and TriForce. Some fancy boots yes?
Kind of thinking about being able to close the gap (LEAPS!!!) and stun so the ADC can catch up and finish 'im off. Would I need AS for such an endeavor? What about AD?
I want to be able to sit, tank the ADC, and rip Auto-Attacks on 'em like a MoFo. You catchin' my drift here?
If I'm not being smart about this let me know. But I know this can happen well. If there's already a build lemme know too. I'll continue searching.

I wouldn't see it as being AS helpful as a normal support such as Sona. But, I could see it working with the tankniess the ult gives you and the AOE stun from your E. I would build SOME attack speed and totally get frozen mallet or rylais so your adc could catch up.
Thnx to Nameless bard for making it

Seems like it's possible, but not as viable as most other supports. Yeah he can tank, and yeah he has one stun, but other supports generally have a lot more to bring to the role such as a heal or more CC.

A support needs to scale into late game without CS or kills. Jax is a hyper-carry that needs kills and CS. I honestly would only take him bot in a kill lane. For your sake don't do this as you will just get yelled at and reported for trolling.
If you felt I contributed or am just cool, drop me some rep +1 rep?
This and anything I say are my opinions (in no way facts), that are continually evolving as time goes on,
as I am far from an expert and always striving to learn more.

But, a support usually supports the adc...
This usually includes healing, shielding, and CC.
Jax only has CC O.O
Maybe not as good as other supports, but still viable.


+rep me if you think I did something cool enough to deserve it!

Because biltzcrank and Leona can do what he can but 10x better with 1/10th of the gold necessary.

A build would probably go something like

Ruby Sightstone
Ninja Tabi
Twin Shadows/ shard of true ice
zeke's herald
Runic Bulwark

Or something like that. Maybe Trinity Force for last item if you and/or your adc are super fed up the ***.

In other words, no.

Well that was helpful. I understand that he's not a healer or anything like that, but I'm not talking about Ranked games here.
I've played plenty of games where something like this isn't necessary, but neither is making Ali go mid because "I can't have any other lane because I can't play any other lane." I've been forced into plenty of ridiculous situations in normal games. This might be a little fun.

If you want to improve, you'd be better off practicing Jax in top lane or supporting with someone like Leona.
Thanks to Nyoike for the sig!
