Jax Build

Jax will build equipment for attack speed first, then resistance equipment, lifesteal. Trinity Force is the most suitable equipment when giving Jax all important utilities. A short-armed gladiator will be at a huge disadvantage when facing champions with long ranged attacks. In addition LEAP STRIKE to the ability to use the approach "Three Fusion Swords" also provides movement speed. To make sure the enemy is always within Jax's reach.

If you take Jax to Top, you will be interested in equipment for lifesteal on the 2nd purchase because when you regularly trade damage, having lifesteal equipment will help Jax stay on the road longer. And if he used Jax to split push, Jax wouldn't run home every time he ran out of blood.

If you take the Jax jungle, you should build resistance equipment right from the second item. A solid Jax won't hesitate to jump on enemy champions when ganking. At this point you will need to turn early COUNTER STRIKE before jumping into the gank because damage and CC will focus on you relatively most especially when ganking bot lane.

How to play Jax

Early game

Need to farm a little to get to level 3 as soon as possible. When level 3 Jax will have enough combos that can attack without fear of being ganked. If it dies too early, it's relatively difficult for a short-handed champion to farm minions in the turret.

Mid game

Split pushing is Jax's forte and if the enemy team is going to send someone up against you at this stage Jax doesn't mind solo 1vs1.

Late game

Still continuing to push retail. Of course, if there's a teamfight next to big targets, you have to be present.

Combo

LEAP STRIKE EMPOWER COUNTER STRIKE GRANDMASTER'S MIGHT

Combo 1:

COUNTER STRIKE + LEAP STRIKE + AA + EMPOWER + COUNTER STRIKE + AA

Combo 2:

AA + LEAP STRIKE + AA + EMPOWER

Combo 3:

COUNTER STRIKE + AA + EMPOWERLEAP STRIKE + COUNTER STRIKE + AA

Jax pros and cons

Pros

Possesses mixed damage.

Fast turret push

Mobility.

Cons

The cooldown of the control is relatively long.

Jax counters

Do not attack while Jax is on "COUNTER STRIKE" while staying away from the affected area. The quick pick doesn't prolong the trade dame to avoid Jax from accumulating enough passive. Mainly trading dame with Jax at the first level is the most advantageous.

Conclusion

Jax Wild Rift is a champion that will get stronger towards the end of the game, pushing many skills to escape COUNTER STRIKE. If going to push odd need to keep . And if the trade damage is good before allin needs to basic attack to accumulate the passive to get attack speed before using EMPOWER. With the build, Jax mostly focuses on building attack speed and resistance items. Hope you will terrify your opponent with the blows, the steals, the odd catch of the Grandmaster at Arms.
