Summoner Spells Back to Top

Summoner Spells

Untitled-1.png

4.pngFlash is the best summoner around and should be taken every game. Flash provides an instant result that can be used to engage, disengage or even escape. This summoner is the best in the game.179.png
12.png I recommend taking Teleport because it gives you global map pressure. This summoner spell allows you to help other lanes, get back to lane quicker or even used to escape. I recommend using teleport on your first back, then saving it to help counter gank lanes.179.png
14.png  3.png  I do not recommend taking Ignite or Exhaust, however you can if you wish. If you are comfortable in killing your enemy laner then you can take either one. You will be missing out on the global map pressure but you will have dominance over enemies who take teleport.179.png


New Runes Back to Top

Press%20the%20Attack.png?width=32For Jayce I recommend Precision and Press the attack. This is good on Jayce because you can easily auto enemies 3 times in a row.

Presence%20of%20Mind.png?width=32 Presence of mind is good on him as Jayce uses a lot of Mana especially early, so having this regen is good on him. Legend%20Tenacity.png?width=32 Legend Tenacity is a very good Rune because it allows him to get away easier and it cancels out some CC. Jayce can get tied down with CC very easily and is quiet squishy so taking this will help him survive.

Cut%20Down.png?width=32 Cut down is good as you deal burst damage to enemies, and realistically will not be healthier then the majority of enemy laners.

The next tree should be Sorcery and taking Transcendence.png?width=32 Transcendence and Manaflow%20Band.png?width=32 Manaflow Band. These two Runes will help you out in dealing damage and being more of a nuisance to the enemy.

Jayce's Passive is Hextech Capacitor!

Whenever Jayce switches between Hammer Stance and Cannon Stance, he gains a brief bonus in movement speed


Screenshot_1.png
179.png

Jayce's Q is To the Skies / Shock Blast!


Hammer Stance: Jayce dashes to the enemy slamming is hammer dealing damage and slowing enemies

Cannon Stance: Jayce fires an orb to detonates upon hitting an enemy or reaching the end of its path dealing damage.

Tips: You can increase your Q speed/damage if you use your E while using your Q. You can do either E + Q or Q + E. Make sure the orb goes through the gate. I think Q E is a better combo because it is more surprising. Beware of this skill shot and the range as it sometimes looks like will hit when it doesn't. Make sure to poke the enemies whenever possible with your Q.

Jayce's W is Lightning Field / Hyper Charge!


Hammer Stance: Jayce surronds himself with an electric field dealing magic damage to enemies in its radius

Cannon Stance: Jayce gains extra attack speed on his next 3 basic attacks

Tips: This ability (Cannon form) is an auto attack reset and you can use it on towers to take them down quicker. If you're low on mana, go into melee form as his W passive grants extra mana each time he hits an enemy with basic autos. This will regenerate your mana quicker, however be careful.

Jayce's E is Thundering Blow / Acceleration Gate!


Hammer Stance: Jayce swings his hammer to an enemy target knocking them back.

Cannon Stance: Jayce deploys a gate for 4 seconds granting all allies who pass through it bonus movement speed.

Tips: You can increase your Q speed/damage if you use your E while using your Q. You can do either E + Q or Q + E. Make sure the orb goes through the gate. This ability also has a high cooldown, so do not spam it. I recommend using his E whenever you are trying to engage or escape in the game as the speed up is great. When trading, use your melee E last because of the knock back.

Jayce's Ultimate is Transform Mercury Cannon!


Hammer Stance: You go to melee form.

Cannon Stance: You gain range.

Tips: In most situations, you want to be in ranged form. This gives you a lot of maneuverability and makes you more of a menace in game. I recommend staying in ranged form as much as possible. You can use your ultimate on and off when running to lane to gain extra speed- It doesn't cost mana so use as much as you can. When going for trades you can switch out to melee form to do extra damage and gain a speed boost. Alternatively you can use your E then run through and use your ultimate for a double speed boost!

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Dorans Blade is good on Jayce
    This is the best start for Jayce because of the sustain it gives.

Core Items

    First core item will be Youmuu's
    Jayce's 2nd Item
    Remember to upgrade your boots!
    4th item black Cleaver
    Edge of Night 5th and Guardians Angel 6th

Situational Items

    If you're against a heavy AP enemy.
    Good if enemy has lots of CC
    Good if you need more health.
    Strong defensive items
    Remember to get one these if you're versus tanky enemies

Your first core item will be Youmuu’s. This item is good for Jayce because it provides extra AD which he really needs. It also grants some extra cooldown which will come in handy. Your 2nd item will be Duskblade. This is really strong on him as it grants cooldown and added damage. The multiple passives on this item make him much stronger as well. Remember to buy boots beforehand and have them upgraded as your 3rd item. Your 4th item will be The Black Cleaver. This item will give us max CDR and allow us to be a little bit stronger because of the health it gives us. Your final items will be Edge of Night- for team fights (remember to use the passive). Followed by Guardian angel.

Jayce is a champion whos itemization can be swapped out for other items depending on what you need. You can also change The Black Cleaver to be your 2nd item instead of 4th if you wish.

Early Game Back to Top

Jayce is best against melee champions and enemies who are squishy. In the early game levels 1-3 you want to poke as much as possible and abuse your range to the fullest. If you’re versus tank champions such as Dr Mundo, Nautilus or Maokai you want to be poking the enemy with your auto’s and abilities as often as possible. Level 1 you want to push for the level 2 advantage, and try your best to deal as much damage to the enemy as possible- you really need to poke them down so you can have an easier laning phase and get ahead. When you’re against a fighter or somebody who can beat you or go equal, you need to play slightly more defensive but still aggressive.

Your main job is to farm up and try to deny the enemy as much as possible, your abilities deal lots of damage and you have a lot of burst as well. Make sure to abuse this. Remember that Jayce’s abilities cost can be quiet high and that does add up when you for a combo. If you have your level peaks and enough mana you can go for a greedy combo and try to burst the enemy down. W+Q+E+R+Q+E is an example combo.

In the early game, you main job is to:

Farm

Poke

Deny


Mid/Late Game Back to Top

In the Midgame and team fights you want to poke as much as possible.

Jayce isn’t good in team fights…….Well. Not exactly bad, he just can’t straight fight 5v5. Your job is to poke as much as possible before the game starts. You can use your Q+E / E + Q Combo and poke them down as much as possible. Your job is just to keep poking and trying to get the enemy low before going for a fight. Remember, do not go out of mana and keep enough up for your other abilities.

Jayce is very good at taking down towers. You want to rotate around the map and start taking the towers. If your team is grouped mid, you should look to split push and be prepared to teleport and help your team. Always watch the map when you’re split pushing.

In the final stages of the game Jayce will fall off. In fights, like before-you need to poke down the enemies and catch the squishies. You can easily win the game by a few good poke opportunities.

Remember. Poke Poke Poke.
