Summoner Spells Back to Top

Heal and Flash for Bot lane. The movement speed and healing is amazing to Jhin especially early game.

Ignite and Flash for Top lane. Ignite is great for early game kills and Jhin top is all about snowballing.

Ghost and Flash for Top or Mid. Need movement speed in Mid lane and some TopsĀ  (zeds, yasuos, rivens, ect.)

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Alright. So if you going ADC or Mid, I'd take these masteries. They are really good because your ult can proc DFT. If you are going top lane. You can take Thunderlords. I don't recommend it but it was really good and can still work if you want to go combo Jhin. If you do take 5 in Intelligence aswell.

My usual Route. You can put a point into w at level 4 for extra snare time if you have a lux or thresh. But only if you know you can have them hit a cc and you can aswell as its usually a guaranteed kill. And please start Q, I see way too many Jhin players start W and feed first blood because of it. And you can just farm and deal more damage with Q first.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Easily the best start. Lifesteal for early game with feast will heal you a bunch, Health is amazing for Jhin if your looking to snowball. and damage is amazing of course.
    You can go this if your top. Its not as good but it still works if you need to rush a BT.

Core Items

    Try to atleast get one of these first back. Any of them are good but best is BF Sword with boots.
    Main Build (Path in notes) (If your fine with healing and have good peal get Phantom dancer before BT)
    A good item if you don't need lifesteal, Especially top and mid, very nice for snowballing.
    A lot of people put down BOTRK because its all about the attack speed that comes with it. Its not a terrible item on Jhin. If you against a tank with speed (ie, Mundo) I really isn't a bad item, though i would sell it later ingame for last item.
    Really good item if going top lane and against someone tanky, even if you don't go combo Jhin.
    A very good item if going top combo Jhin. For kiting and chasing, and tank stats with a slow and damage.

Situational Items

    Common mistakes. Youmuu's Ghostblade. Ok before everyone crys. Yes this is a good item. Not good enough to rush it. Especially on Jhin, Who needs crit to snowball. This is a good item for armor pen but there's better items to get for armor pen and you shouldn't be rushing GhostBlade. Unless your playing combo Jhin (which is usually top) you shouldn't rush this.
    OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. Please. Please just dont rush this. Its a embarrassment to everyone who mains Jhin and sees someone rush this. Even Youmuu's is a better rush. Its a really good second Item though.
    Ok, So why essence reaver? Because you get crit first of all. That means more movement speed (which you need for kiting and reloading) and also its amazing in lane whilest chasing. Second of all, Damage. Its a giant damage item that boosts WITH the crit already on the item because of Jhins passive. AND finally CDR and the passive. This item is one of the best for CDR especially on crit champions. Jhin needs its for his q and after this item just spam and zone the enemy out of lane. The passive is what allows you to do that so you can have infinite mana at first buy. This is exactly why you should rush essence reaver. In any lane really.
    Ok, After the nerf, They are still really good. Especially on Jhin. He needs in combat movespeed adding on to his crits. Now if you are going mid or top lane as combo Jhin you should probably take Ionian boots for the 45% CDR.

My Main build path Is: 3508.png -3031.png-3094.png-3009.png-3072.png-3046.png
This gives you all the stats you want and need. You'll be snowballing if your given 1 kill. This is my main ADC build and sometimes mid build.

Combo Jhin (Explained Below): 3508.png-3158.png-3022.png-3142.png-3147.png-3036.png
This is my main build for Top. As its called combo Jhin because it is all about a combo between your auto attacks for armor pen and you CDR for your spamming Q, W, And E. You can take out Frozen mallet for Iceborn Gaunlet if you really wanted to as sheen is really good for this build but you lose tanky stats.

Carry Build: 3508.png-3031.png-3009.png-3072.png-3147.png-3036.png or 3033.png (depends on who their carry is)
This is the build you want to do if your team is really behind and your not snowballing hard enough. It will give you a insane amount of damage and be able to 1 shot any squishys and even tanks at times.

VS

Alistar

Easy

Alistar is pretty easy just because he has to get his combo off to be any good. just watch out for it and you should be completely fine. and don't let him push you towards his turret as that's a guaranteed death.

VS

Annie

Hard

A long ranged mage support with stuns every 10 seconds. How does that sound to you?

VS

Ashe

Medium

A very iffy champion to face. If shes any good she will be able to keep you zoned until your 6. Make sure you take her ult for account when you ult aswell. And be VERY carful is they have a hook or stun as one of those will get you caught out and killed or very far behind.

VS

Bard

Medium

This is pretty iffy. Bard is quite powerful especially because his ult can just stop yours, and his stun with a adc is quite scary damage. so be careful and farm up, playing aggressive after 7 is pretty safe.

VS

Blitzcrank

Hard

DONT GET HOOKED AND DONT WALK IN BUSHES. That or get a snare and kill him. SIt behind minions and farm if he can land hooks.

VS

Braum

Easy

Be careful of him, Don't let him hit his Q's and he also has a jump to get out of your ult. beside that hes pretty easy

VS

Caitlyn

Hard

Another sniper without bullets basically. Depends how good they are. watch out for those traps and try to get a early kill on her support as trying to chase her is basically death to you. And take in her E for account when you ult.

VS

Corki

Easy

a very easy lane. he relies on you letting him farm so just get a early kill and don't let him do anything.

VS

Draven

Easy

Pretty easy. Too many people think the Tyler1 build is good and will end up feeding because they don't understand how items work. just W where ever his Q's go and you can get a easy snare into kill.

VS

Ezreal

Medium

Hes very iffy like bard. He has a good escape but is all skillshots. focus on just dodging shots and farming until late game, Unless you get a early gank this is hard to snowball against.

VS

Graves

Hard

This guy just does too much damage and can burst you before you can even get a shot off. Or how I say it. NO COUNTERPLAY. if hes not fed then just try to get a snare on him and a few shots with ult. Hes still really squishy.

VS

Janna

Easy

Very easy match up. just dodge tornadoes all day and farm. at 6 make sure you remember people have movement speed towards her.

VS

Jinx

Medium

Against a Jinx you want to becarful if she gets 1 kill as she is a snowball hyper carry. If you can kill her off early game you will destroy her in a late even if shes fed. Just don't let your support or you die to her early on.

VS

Kalista

Hard

A really hard matchup. She has a insane amount of mobility and also a discombobulant against you which really can fuck you. Just play safe and wait for ganks.

VS

Karma

Medium

This is iffy. She has ult level 1 giving her a amazing early game and a shit ton of damage so be careful of what she does. she has everything she needs so play around her more than her adc.

VS

Kog'Maw

Easy

Very easy lane now he got nerfed again. He has to rush a trinity force to be any good in game and even if hes fed in late you can still kill him easily. Remember his passive though.

VS

Leona

Hard

3 stuns is really hard to play against so try to stay back and wait to go in until abilitys are down. Just keep a eye on cooldowns.

VS

Lux

Hard

CANCERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, CANCERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR EVERYWHEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

VS

Miss Fortune

Hard

Ok this dumb bitch is super fucking broken right now. No matter what anyone says. her ult does a million damage at rank 1 and you don't have a lot of mobility to get out in the first place while she can kite and slow you easily.

VS

Thresh

Easy

Even though he's one of the best with jhin, Thresh can't do a lot against jhin. The best way to counter Jhin is to out place him or burst him. Thresh moves him a bit, but not to the point of instant death like blitzcrank. Just watch out for hooks and his ult and you should be ok.

Who am I? Back to Top

Hi, I'm Zillano, I main Jhin and Kled and I'm currently Silver 3 and going for gold. I've been playing League for 2 years with this account and my favorite champion ever is Jhin. I have always found Jhin building wrong and just making a complete fool of themselves and it almost makes me mad about it haha. But I hope you enjoy this guide. I hope me being in Silver doesn't scare you away. I don't play ranked as I find it way too stressful and annoying on how it relies on your teammates more than you. I think I'm a bit better than Silver but you never know. Either way. I made this guide because I love Jhin to death and thought he needed a new guide. I love Jhin so much I will and have never gotten a penta with him as he loves the number 4, Cant make him go to 5 XD.

My Youtube Back to Top

My youtube is: My channel
I just edit and upload my moments with my friends. I have a video or 2 on Jhin if you want to see how I do it. Thanks a lot for reading my guide and I hope you enjoyed. Good luck in games with him.
