I'm realative new to LoL, and still got much to learn.
But what do you think about Jayce being a tank?

I tried it in a bot game, and got pretty good stats
500 AP
4750 HP
199 Armour

The reason why i made him Jayce AP as tank, is because of the Lightning Field,
which at lvl 18 ticked for 860dmg/4 sec

I got the "To the skies" which does minor dmg but slow the enemies for 50% for 2 sec

I also got the acceleration gate, to help my team to get away or hunt down enemies.
I could probably get better stats, since i did not use proper runes and mastery.

What you guys think, would it work, i dont "dare" to try this without someone with more expertice comment on it. :)

Randuin's Omen
Sorcerers shoes
Rod of Ages
Will of the Ancients
Rabadons Deathcap
Warmogs Armour

Thanks in advance

surprised you're going for the aoe damage when you arent also building a sunfire cape..

in all honesty, jayce is better built with atrimogs, then as a tank. since he scales extremely better with ad.

I have found that I can play him much more as a tanky-DPS. I played one game, and I find that this build can wreck squishes, while still giving you extreme tankiness. I got to 3400 health, with Mercs, Atmogs, Bloodthirster, Infinity Edge, and Trinity Force. I was also able to get to around 190 armor in Hammer Mode. The best part about this however was the 401 damage. While some would see this as overkill, late game with 58% Crit chance the W on Cannon Form is devastating, easily destroying enemy AD Carries. I'm sure that there are other ways to play Jayce, and ways that are better, but if you are doing well (And you should be if you are Jayce) you can easily snowball and carry you team, while being tanky.
Thanks to jhoijhoi for the awesome PsiGuard-loving sig!

Playing him as a Trinity Tank is probably slightly better, although I don't see why you couldn't build him as an AP Tank. I'd probably try your build if I bothered to purchase Jayce =b
