So I been using Jayce for a month now and gotten really good with him. So I been asking around alot and the majority of people tell me Jayce should stay top..But what I notice is that all bot lane is ranged or a support. And Jayce is ranged..So can he be a "good" bottom laner?

Well I've seen this only once... and he failed. But IMO you can play nearly every char bot. I even tried Wukong support and did fine with it.

His range is short. That's why he stays top lanes, where you don't see as many ranged champs.

If you played him botlane, you'd have to play him like a bruiser. But I don't suggest that.

Well I guess he thinks about playing as support, doesnt he?
The dude who failed played support.

Jayce can so long as you have a Support that can close the gap for him. Give him someone like Volibear or Blitzcrank and bring the squishies to him.

It's not 'His range is short.'

Jayce is half melee, and while that doesn't matter much early on, late game if you don't build damage you are severely handicapping your team, while if you build only damage + 1 survivability item once you go hammer form you get 1 shotted and become useless.

It's only really works imo as a kill lane.

Jayce just functions better in a lane where he can build damage and tankiness, he can't do that in bot lane near as well without handicapping the team by dropping an ADC or an actual support.

Hmm thanks everyone for the interesting response. I guess I'll have to stick to the top lane.

Jayce has same range as sivir maybe she should also go top. She could be burst caster like jayce.

used to be able to much better in S2, but he's now easily countered by other ADCs.
