Hello, I decided to buy Jayce as he seemed like a champion I'd like, a range carry that can go bruiser, I enjoy him but I'm having a big problem, my scores.I have tried a large variety a builds, but If I go AD I'm too squishy early on, if I build tanky I do no damage and lose the lane. Any help and advice would really help, but don't flame, make it constructive.

You have to combo people and be much smarter than them. Jayce has a very good burst early game, however his cooldowns are long. Just try to harass as much as you can and when someone comes to help or you have the advantage, go in for the kill.


Edit: I'm also not sure what lane you're going in. I feel like he's actually safest jungling or bot as ranged carry. As a jungler you'd want bruiser items like Trin force, Rnduins, Wit's end, etc.

Carry Jayce is a bit riskier but his kill potentional is so high.

I can't, any attempt to harass ends up either me taking heavy damage or missing and getting oomed, then leading to a death.

I just quit a game after dieing 2 times in 3 minutes, after 10 really bad games I'm starting to doubt Jayce.

Edit: I've tried solo top, top with tank, bot with support and bot with tank, all ends up losing.

I've had 4 great games with him today. I typically poke people with the Gate/Shock blast combo, then hammer stance, too the skies and walk behind them to use thundering blow into the turret, usually ends up in a kill

I try doing that but I always miss and end up oom, or they just hide behind minions and I waste mana.

You kind of have to pick a form, and build specifically for it. Have you tried VAI with him? To me, he does not seeem like the kind of champion you can just start playing pvp immediately with. Or, maybe Jayce just isn't your cup of tea after all.

Thanks to DuskToGlory for the sigs. LOL :)

Working on a Pantheon guide, will finish when I get around to it, could be never.
+Rep? I don't need it, but if you really want me to have it, I wont stop you.

I did one Vs AI and I did moderately well against intermediate bots, would you reccomend jungling, if so, what are his ganks like?

Jayce has very high mobility, a ranged initiation, as well as a slow and knock back. I liken his ganks to Hecarim or a half ***ed Alistar. They are good. but not the best.

So as Jungle Jayce, I shall have the AD Jungles Masteries, with Ad marks, AD quints, armor seals and MR glyphs, I will start with cloth + 5 pots, build that into a wriggles. For abilities I will level R>Q>W>E.

For ganking should I use the speedbuff to run in, use my skillshot then go to hammer to knock back and hopefullly get a kill?

Edit: Just did a custom game with cloth + pots. I did Blue, Wolves, wraiths , golems and had to recall as I was on low hp and no pots.

Did it with scepter, had to recall after blue.

Doing it with cloth pots but with a more tanky masteries, taking w first but maxing E because of the % of hp damage, did a level 3 gank barely (on my own) but counterjungling could be an issue.
