The change on his ult lets him supposedly build glass cannon again and still be Tanky as hell. Personally, I'm not sure, but I think building items that give AP/AD and health like Rylai's Crystal Scepter and Frozen Mallet, etc would be really good on him.

Maybe even Gunblade, Rageblade, Atmogs, Triforce, and boots would make him really strong again.

Thoughts?

Better than before but not even close to the real Jax.

You're not tanky as hell, you're just a bit more tanky and not forced to build complete metagolem, while lacking a definite type of dmg resulting in a decrease of penetration and lifeleech utility.


IMO you're now just forced to build your dmg depending on the enemy team.

- TF
- If not: Rylai's or F.Mallet.
- Zerker's -> Mercury's/Ninja's
- Hextech
- Guinsoo's
The enemy got an unbalanced dmg output on physical/magical -> build AD/AP.

Sth like his pre-nerf build with more focus on some early HP.
But still, he's way weaker than his former self.
Ok, pre-nerf Jax was a ***** after he got hands on his 2nd item, but that remolded E bugs the hell out of me.

I think TBH that Atmogg's / Infinity Edge is a potentially viable build now.

^Thats a very biased and unreasonable vote >_>

And you forgot to take into account how well a good Jax player would do against you.

I'm thinking Jax now has a lot more item choices but he's more restricted to building certain items against the other team.

Gold:Stat wise, he's weaker than old, random dodge Jax.

He's certainly strong now but in no way as strong as old Jax. Hybrid is stronger than ever now because of how his ult works.
