Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png14.pngMy preferred summoner spells, insanely easy to snowball with ignite and take control of the game
4.png12.pngFor rough lanes top or to keep yourself from getting out pressured globaly by enemy teleport
4.png1.pngGood against hard mid lane cc (not including malz) so you can build BT instead of QSS
4.png3.pngSafer than ignite against Zed, Yasuo, Talon but majority of the time I prefer ignite.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

These masteries are pretty much mandatory with the exceptions of the choices of

1. Double Edged Sword and Feast
2. Precision and Intelligence


Sorcery over Fury?

We have enough attack speed from our quints for last hitting and our W for a 4 second cool down steroid. Plus making our Q hit harder is a huge plus.


Double Edged Sword and Feast?

I believe personally Feast is better as it makes laning phase much safer for Jayce and is free unlike Secret Stash, the catch is Double Edged Sword applies to yourself as well so taking more damage is not something I think is worth.

What about Secret Stash or Runic Affinity?

I do not ever recommend secret stash as potions are only used early game and the 20 instant health and mana are not more valuable than 2% more damage as that 2% adds up as the game goes on.

Runic Affinity is more of a Jungle Mastery as you won't have buffs on you for majority of the game.

Always Max Q>W>E


Your ultimate can no longer be leveled but lolking hasn't updated that yet.


Early Game Levels


Your first four levels should always be Q>E>Q>W
with almost no exceptions.


To the Skies! / Shock Blast

One of the most underused abilities, Your Q is AOE and can easily be abused by jumping to minions or the closer target to damage both.

Shock blast will reveal enemies in the fog of war and can be used to jump walls by q'ing jungle camps switching forms and using To the Skies!


Lightning Field / Hyper Charge

Really nice AOE wave clear and the extra damage really helps with all ins.


One of the most broken abilities in the game especially when building crit. This ability combines with your burst is why no ADC can duel you.


Thundering Blows / Acceleration Gate

Extremely powerful knock back that can be used to interrupt enemy dashes, cc, and is the reason you can win some of the hardest match ups for Jayce by completely removing their ability to delete you.


Another one of Jayces least abused ability. Can be placed sideways to allow for a longer move speed buff


How to place Jayce Gate Sideways


Mercury Cannon / Mercury Hammer

Reduces your enemies armor and magic resist which is really nice for all ins.


Nice boost of magic damage that sadly scales off ap instead of a tiny AD ratio.



Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

    Complete ASAP
    2nd or 3rd most games
    one of the most undervalued items in the game, goes extremely well with most core items

Situational Items

    Insanely good against burst, combined with maw against double ap and you're unkillable
    Same as steraks
    Strong against poke comps
    Against tanks a must have

Dorans Blade 1 hps

This is the default start for most match ups as Jayce can normally bully most opponents.


Long Sword 3 hps

This my typical start against 59.png157.png62.png38.png7.png105.png91.png41.png as staying healthy against these targets allows you to potentially bully them or survive laning phase.


Corrupting Potion

Can take this against 7.png91.png105.png62.png420.png though I don't particularly recommend this start over Long Sword start.



Items


3042.png

The most important item for Jayce, it might as well be given to him level 1 like viktors item as you'll basically never not build this.


3812.png

Deaths Dance is a new and exciting item for Jayce. the damage reduction and overall healing has a really nice feel to it and on top of that you get 10% cdr to reach that cap faster.


3147.png

Duskblade is the newest item to hit the rift and is by far one of the strongest new additions to Jayce's item build routes, gives him an even more assassin feel as combined with his very fast burst and rotation he can very quickly get someone low enough for this item to do its magic. if Riot goes through with its original idea of making this item "Melee" only it'll be even stronger.


3072.png

One of the nicest sustain items in the game next to Deaths dance, Deaths dance is better against burst as it allows you to sustain through it while this is nice against poke in my opinion.


3156.png

Combined with Steraks makes it almost impossible for double AP comps to kill you or even burst you to half.


3053.png

In my opinion one of the best defensive items on Jayce, not only does it stop burst but it gives you a bit of more damage and tank stats that can be combined with other items to feel extremely overpowered.



3142.png

Not a fan of this item which has recently spiked in popularity for Jayce players, the attack speed is practically useless because of a 4 second w CD and the only semi valuable stats are the armor pen, movespeed during active, and the AD.

VS

Aatrox

Easy

Poke with autos and Q and do mini all ins where you jump in auto slap away and walk away until cool downs are up. Repeat until dead.

Do not get hit by his knockup  aatroxQ.png or input buffer your E  jayceE.png so he can't do anything after it.

VS

Ahri

Medium

Skill based match up, whoever lands more Qs is most likely going to win this match up.

Try to place yourself next to minions so you can easily dodge charm and keep up as much vision around mid lane as you can. Dying to a gank can completely end the lane for you as she has much better gank setup than you.

You can abuse your Q being AOE by q'ing to a minion to land slow to make pre 6 ganks against her super easy as most people don't understand how Jayce  Q works.

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

Get early boots and just Dodge is Q while poking and do your best to stay out of silence range. Never dive silence will destroy you if you make the mistake of diving a Cho.

VS

Dr. Mundo

Easy

Take ignite
dont get hit by cleaver
auto to low
burst with combo GG

VS

Fiora

Hard

If you lose early Game you lose all game. Never use your E in trades and only use it after baiting her parry or else you'll get completely destroyed.

I tend to start Long Sword in this matchup and do I best to stand near minions as her q can be weird around minions and target them instead. If you win early harass auto under turret to make laning phase super easy just make sure to keep Tri warded. If behind let her shove and sit under turret as long as you're only 10 cs - 20 cs down you shouldn't be able to be dived without her jungler. Pray your team shuts her down in team fights.

VS

Gangplank

Easy

This lane is only hard if you start Dorans Blade, Just dodge his barrel explosions and slowly poke him out of lane. Care for standing near the brushes as he can hide a barrel in them for easy explosions.

VS

Garen

Easy

Auto to win. Smack him away when he Q's you, laugh as they gutted his W making him 1000000 times easier to lane against than old Garen that would trainwreck you.

VS

Gnar

Easy

This is a super one sided match up. Gnar is extremely squishy early game and his Q is worse than yours, just don't get stunned and you win.

VS

Irelia

Hard

In my opinion one of the biggest skill match ups depending on how Irelia decides to play, Irelia players normally go in with the mindset they are stronger when in reality your early game is much much stronger, especially pre 6. If you get one pre 6 kill by gently poking her without getting stunned in her minions you should easily be able to kill her. Once you have a level advantage she shouldn't be able to jump on you and kill you.

VS

Jarvan IV

Hard

Jarvan is extremely frustrating to play against if he lands his E Q, getting hit once early game can end your laning phase completely for you, Survive early game and you should do much more than him.

VS

Jax

Easy

Smack him away during his Jump with stun by input buffering and you auto win lane. Just poke him down.

VS

Kennen

Easy

Extremely easy match up as long as you don't let him freely poke you with q, your q is much much better. Try to not trade while his passive is up or he gets a free auto w on you. As soon as you get either lifesteal or hexdrinker you should win most 1 v 1s unless you heavily mess up.

VS

Malphite

Medium

If he gets ahead he can just ult you and kill you.

Try to zone while farming to keep him as under tanky as possible normally it's not possible to kill this guy unless he starts corrupting potion and does stupid trades. You can do more in fights as long as you play right and your team doesnt bundle together in team fights.

VS

Nautilus

Easy

Dont get hit my Q, auto win lane cause you're poke and harass is insane.

VS

Nidalee

Medium

Skill match up especially if it's AD nidalee. DO NOT step in bushes or she gets a free long range jump to you thats cd gets lowered after landing on you. poke her while doding her Q and her traps and you should be able to come out on top or scale into the late game where she falls off.

VS

Olaf

Hard

Dodge or pray for ganks.

Your chances of winning this are next to none, It's like trundle vs Yorick you'll never kill him and he'll always kill you.

VS

Pantheon

Medium

just survive early game, taking teleport might be a good idea and just go b as soon as you get low, dying to him and losing cs is worse than being 20 cs behind. If you are able to somehow out poke him or input buffer his stun you should be able to have more pressure than him in fights.

VS

Poppy

Medium

You can easily poke her out of lane just don't get stunned and don't jump on her when her W is up.

VS

Renekton

Medium

You should be able to poke him out of lane and input buffer his dash to completely stop his damage. Sit back until your knock back and switching forms is back up after levels 6.

VS

Riven

Medium

Input buffer your E and poker her down at the same time, you should easily get ahead not be kill able as long as you play it right. Rush CDR items.

VS

Rumble

Easy

Poke down, don't stand in his Q, all in pre 6 and GG lane phase is over.

VS

Sion

Medium

If he has half a brain you shouldn't be able to kill him. Just farm up and do more than him in fights, you can easily assassinate almost any carry with items.

VS

Swain

Easy

Do not get hit by his snare and you should win early game so hard his level 6 won't even matter. One of the easiest lanes in the game for Jayce especially with ignite.

VS

Syndra

Hard

One of the hardest match ups for Jayce, not only can she interrupt your Dash she can stun you in the process and proceed to 100-0 you. Best bet is getting MR and boots and waiting for ganks, you CAN out team fight her in fights as long as you play to farm and stack manamune.

VS

Vladimir

Easy

Longsword 3 pots, just auto and poke with q GG.

VS

Wukong

Hard

This match up is skill based, and guessing what he does with his w, if you Q onto him don't instantly use E as he most likely cloned and you'll waste your damage. Try to safely poke early game and as he leaps to you shock blast him to the face before jumping on him, remember your Q is AOE so even if he uses clone instantly after jumping in it will still damage him.

About Me Back to Top

       Hi my name is Ariah but I go also by "Zay, righ-righ, ZayL" and I've been a Jayce main since his launch.
Jayce very quickly became my favorite champion to play as he was unique in the sense of having no ultimate but the ability to switch between melee and range which made me feel like I was playing the ultimate champion. Some of my other favorite champions are Orianna, Azir, Lucian, Jax, and Nidalee.

I typically can be found logged in on my Ariah or Zaylison account and for now don't mind accepting friend requests for any questions. You can also reach me at any of the links below.
