Jax Rework Concept
by Kurooaisu

Runeterra's greatest weapons master, Jax is the only survivor of the Kohari—champions sworn to the defense of Icathia. But when the Void was unleashed against the Shurima Crest icon.png Shuriman empire's Ascended Host, Icathia was destroyed, leaving Jax without a home or purpose. He gathered the “last light of Icathia”, a symbol of his hope to one day defeat the Void, and now travels the world, searching for warriors strong enough to face the coming darkness by his side.

He holds a very important part in fighting against Void. However, the in-game Jax doesn't reflect that. Here, he is a champion very capable of using many different weapons, to the point of being able to defeat anyone. Feeling to strong, instead of using real weapon, he uses a lamppost to give his enemies a fighting chance. "iMagINe if i hAVe A reAAAAAAaaaL weApON."

So, to give him a reflect the current League of Legends lore in a better way, we decided to give him a visual and gameplay update, as well as a lore overhaul.

For the gameplay stance, we want to give him a sense that he is a sort of this veteran warrior hardened by his combat experience instead of a boastful troll who holds lantern. Now we're giving him a real weapon (I know, surprising, right?)...

Um, okay. For this gameplay rework, our goal is to give Jax more capabilities to turn the tides of battle. While we want to maintain his combat mobility and the iconic E, Counter Strike, we want to increase his skill floor and outplay potential, which will also increase his skill cap as well. However, we want to maintain Jax as a simple champion. So, eventually, we believe our final approach for Jax is the best solution for all of these goals. We've been working on him for a while, and we can't wait to see what kind of tricks you can pull off with our new Jax on the Summoners Rift.

Lorewise, we want to give him a sense that he is really the last light of old Icathia to fight against Void, as well as pushing his lore forward. So, finally, we give him a chance to gather the strongest Runeterra warriors, and they finally go to Icathia and cleanse away Void from the world, once and for all.

Sadly, the army isn't strong enough. As they were in the middle of battle, the amount of soldiers were dwindling. Many lives were lost, claimed by the madness of the Void. Until there left the last man standing, Jax. With his willpower and his weapon, he tried to get out from the ravaging Void, but the Void were too strong. The Void were shaping him, reforming him, but he managed to came out alive, changed...

Null Bonk and Void Bonk are the same thing. I'm sorry if I might confuse those two terms a lot because they're both related to void/zero. The official term is Null Bonk.
