Hey Guys. This is the first guide I have made so far in league. Let's start with some background.
As you can see, I'm currently gold 2, and will hopefully get to plat by the end of this season. Now, I understand that a lot of yall want to get into dat dank gold. Here's a guide on how I dealt with afks, trolls, and feeders by playing the ultimate trolling machine riot has endowed upon us - Jax.
Anyways, for summoner spells I typically go Smite/Flash. Flash, obviously is a great utility spell, for getting out of tight spots, to chasing, to trolling the enemy team at their nexus. Smite is, of course, obvious as well. Pretty damn hard to jungle without smite, trust me.
Other spells i've run jax with before are ghost, exhaust, and, yes, ignite. All of these have quite a few advantages, such as ghost being perfect for sustained escapes, exhaust for winning jungle skirmishes, and ignite for picking off those pesky little champions that refuse to die for some reason. All of them have their advantages, but in the end I would recommend , due to its pure utility. But that's up to you, summoner. :D
The mastery tree I use for Jax is quite standard for many AA based champions. On occasion, I take Warlord's Bloodlust over Fervor of Battle due to being better for 1v2 and 1v3 engagements where you have to lifesteal as much as possible to kill others.
Fervor is standard on agressive Jax, but when the situation demands it, taking Strength of the Ages is a great way to build up innate tank stats without having to waste item slots on health.
Another alternative is to try to assassinate enemy champions as fast as possible before making a quick escape. Thunderlords is a great keystone for those who wish to kill as fast as possible in a burst, but know that it falls off to an extent late game.
Pretty simple, start with counterstrike at Krugs and smite it and kill it. Putting a skillpoint into empowered strike, Auto cancel using it to deal extra damage to the brambleback and kill it as fast as possible, using counterstrike as soon as it comes up. Clear raptors and wolves, then kill blue buff and execute with smite or whittle it down. Recall or kill scuttle and then recall. Get Saber and a dagger. You are now ready to gank lanes and dominate, or ambush enemy jungler. (More will be written later, tired)
