hello there summoners! As you see the title on this thread is about Jax on the mid lane!!! I know it sounds very weird but i have tested him and his surprisingly strong mid laner! I have played about 10 games and most of them i TOTALLY CRASHED mid opponents like Ashe Teemo Ahri Annie Orianna LeBlanc Xerath...the only champion he did some fine job against me was Katarina.I lost 2 of 3 duels but on the second one she left with 5 hp! So it was kinda tie...The thing i noticed that is really funny is that your mid opponents have no experience about facing Jax on the mid PLUS the true fact that he is the best 1v1 champion,make them play defensively and in frustration! Leap Strike+ Ignite+ Exhaust+ Relentless Assault is a great ''poke'' combo before minions come!!! :::D Either you get first blood against a squishy guy without escapes or he Flashes back with minimun health and recalls back so you can easily farm the first minion wave, or he will stand like an idiot under his turret with 60 hp watching you farming and the right moment you jump in their face and u have the kill! :::)
Jax has a very powerful harass Empower+ Leap Strike for squishes mid champions and a counter ability for ad carries Counter Strike.He is tougher than the most mid champions he will face and farming is unexpectedly easy... and farming for Jax its very crucial because he is item dependant,but on the other hand he is also a lethal ganker. So what is the lane that provides both ganking opportunities and wealthy farming? MID! I strongly think about playing Jax mid exclusively!!! So if he is considered to be the toughest 1v1 guy and one of the most OP champions,then MID lane would be the proof for this statement!
Any thoughts? :::)

P.S PLZ VISIT MY BUILD ON Jax THE JAXMANIAN DEVIL! happy holidays and...lamp shaped bruises! :::D

Er, first of all, Jax is not considered the best 1v1 dueler in the game, at least not by many. Secondly, if you aren't running Flash or Ghost mid lane, you are doing something wrong. The fact that you have to Leap Strike to get close should be an easy warning that you will get ganked because of it. Lastly, since when did Jax become a lethal ganker? There are many other characters who are much better at ganking than Jax.

Still, it's an interesting idea, so I'll give you props for thinking of it. I just think Talon or Pantheon would still do better.

If I helped you, click that +rep!

hey friend thnx about posting your thoughts...well just played another game Jax (23/11/9) mid vs Gragas! a new challenger for me...wellllll...i totally destroyed him!!! then around 5 lvl Mordekaiser came mid to ''handle this weird mider'' as he said...but... :::D as for my summoner spell picks let me tell you this..if you build movement speed and tenacity believe me that you will end up with an uncontrolled beast! if you read the background story of Jax everyone admits Jax is the supreme duelist and besides the story i think that many people believe that too.yes its true that are many better gankers than Jax but he is doing fine with ganks and can handle easy an enemy gank in mid with the Counter Strike OR Leap Strike on a ward under your turret!!!!!...plz give a try on him mid! he rules!

I've never lost a lane to a Jax as a Mordekaiser. And while this would work out wonderfully against people like Gragas and Teemo who have no hard form of CC, I really can't imagine champs with really hard forms of CC like Zyra, Ryze and the like would have a hard time against him. Champs that go to mid lane and are mele have a harder time in general, but they usually have long range abilities to harass and keep the enemy champ away or at least afraid to get close. My personal opinion is, keep him in your roster as a "wtf" surprise champ (as I am always game for the unorthodox), but doing exclusive jax mid probably wouldn't work out for you in the long run.

I've certainly tried it, but his laning isn't great and he can get outpoked reaaaaly easy.

mr.nighthawk... Jax mid is a very weird choice and u have to experiment with many runes/masteries combos till you get some fine balance so i really do not encourage average Jax players to play him mid ESPECIALLY in ranked games.Yes he can get outpoked reeeeeally easy BUT on the other hand Jax has a very powerful and EASY harass to land at 2 lvl...

If I can beat a Jax solotop with Yorick (never lost lane to a Jax in ranked... about 4-5 games), rest assured that I could probably own him mid-lane as well. The only thing I can think of for playing Jax mid is his roaming power, since he can jungle as well, so ganking power doesn't decrease there.

Also, what summoner level are you?

I have never seen an Ashe mid in draft/ranked unless it was to cover for a DC/AFK. So why you'd be facing her is beyond me.

mr.sirell... the thing about Jax mid is that surprises the enemy team! YOU WOULD NEVER PLAY Yorick mid lane in a normal game with a normal team composition right ;)so about 90% the adc or the ap caster will face Jax mid. So after playing about 30 games mid with Jax] so on, i ended up with a rune/mastery/starting item/spells recipe that TOTALLY CRASHES MOST MID LANERS! if u are really interesting about my secret recipe i can PM you ;) I play LoL 2 years now and i have played 2000+ games so to answer you for my summoner lvl :)

Jax goes mid, meets AP Master Yi and cries. Oh, actually, every champ does that.
