Jinx's Runes

The strength of Jinx comes from her attack speed. That’s why I choose runes that give more attack speed to ensure Jinx maximizes her power. Lethal Tempo is the rune I will choose for any team composition. I have tried Conqueror, Kraken Slayer, and all of them cannot bring the best power for Jinx.

If you already have attack speed and if you don’t know, Jinx deals damage based on her basic attacks mainly. Therefore, I choose Brutal. Increase damage for each basic attack. I affirm that Jinx must definitely choose this rune.

With the start of team fights, you always have to stand in the back line, leading to most of the initial damage being aimed at the champions with a lot of health. I will choose Giant Slayer to deal more damage to high-health champions. However, if the enemy team is mostly low-health champions. I will choose Coup de Grace. This rune is especially scary for champions below 40% health.

Legend: Alacrity is definitely the rune to choose because it gives an additional 3-20% attack speed.

Finally, you can choose RESOLVE: PERSEVERANCE to have magic resist and tenacity.

Jinx Build

The most important equipment of Jinx Wild Rift are all items that deal physical damage and give attack speed. Multi-target and increase crit chance to 100%.

Besides, Angel Armor as an insurance equipment helps Jinx live longer in teamfights.

The replacement equipment depends on the situation such as whether you want to increase armor or magic resistance or increase armor penetration:

Switcheroo is the skill you need to max out first. Can customize each situation to shoot single or multi-target.

Jinx abilities

PASSIVE GET EXCITED! PASSIVE GET EXCITED!

Increase 140% movement speed and 12% attack speed after killing a target. This is the passive that gives Jinx a sudden burst of power in team fights. Increase DPS and mobility instantly.

SWITCHEROO! SWITCHEROO!

With Fishbones, the Rocket Launcher increases range and area damage. Suitable for poking enemies who stand far away. But I remind you that you should only use it when you are sure to hit the enemy. Because each shot consumes a lot of mana. In the laning phase, I only shoot once and retreat immediately to avoid the damage from the enemy.

Pow-Pow, the Minigun, on the other hand, gives more attack speed and does not consume mana. Suitable for close combat. Kill minions nearby.

ZAP! ZAP!

Shoot a beam of light that has a fairly long range. I use this skill to check vision. And use it to chase targets that are far away. Because this skill can slow down the enemy. This skill is also a skill shot. Need to calculate the direction of the enemy before using.

This skill is also the skill to poke from afar for huge damage if you build Jinx items in the direction of armor penetration.

FLAME CHOMPERS! FLAME CHOMPERS!

Throw out 3 flame chompers. The purpose of this skill is to create pressure that prevents the enemy from chasing Jinx. In any team fight, I will place the chompers in front of me to prevent the enemy from easily approaching me.

It can also be used to corner, block the retreat direction of the enemy. Note that this skill has a long cooldown and consumes a lot of mana. Need to consider before using.

ULTIMATE SUPER MEGA DEATH ROCKET! ULTIMATE SUPER MEGA DEATH ROCKET!

Shoot a super rocket. Area damage and damage depend on the distance of the rocket. The farther the damage, the greater. And this is also a skill shot. Leading to the enemy being very easy to dodge.

I will choose a position that is out of sight to create surprise. In addition, the range of the rocket is the whole map. So watch the whole team fight happening on every front. Support or look for kill points from afar.

How to play Jinx

Early game:

Play safe, focus on farming without trying to poke enemy champions. Keep the minion position always close to the turret. Because Jinx is quite weak in the early stages, it can't do too much damage.

Use Tráo Hàng! splash damage on ranged minions if you want to poke even more enemy champions.

Mid game:

Always go to support, do not go alone to rob large targets on the map. Jinx is a champion that will benefit in prolonged matches, and even in long-term teamfights, thanks to his passive. Increased attack speed and movement ability to help Jinx fly kites well.

End game:

At this point, teamfights will take place often next to big targets like Baron or Dragon. Choose a safe standing position, do not be targeted at the beginning of the fight. Just have a chance to shoot you will destroy the whole enemy team.

Tip: Combine Lựu Đạn Ma Hỏa! with an ally's CC to tie down enemy champions and deal more damage. Specifically, as soon as the enemy champion is hit by CC, throw it at the enemy's feet, at least it will force the speed of the enemy. Combining it with Giật Bắn!  will give double the effect.

Always check the minimap, look for enemy champions in the remaining lanes with low health to use

 Tên Lửa Đạn Đạo Siêu Khủng Khiếp! support or even network ks.

Lựu Đạn Ma Hỏa! always put at your feet or press the corner because Jinx just not letting the enemy champion close is enough to create loads of damage.

Jinx pros and cons

Pros

  • Possesses a huge amount of AOE damage.
  • Fast attack speed.
  • Easy to play.

Cons

  • Very easy to take damage.
  • Orientation skills are easy to dodge.

Jinx counters

Focus on poking Jinx early in the game. Regularly call the jungle to gank. Or choose an assassin champion that ramps up damage quickly to capture Jinx individually.

Conclusion

Jinx Wild Rift is very strong when she has enough items. But she is very weak when she is targeted by assassins. I hope that the item build according to the latest Meta of Kicdo will help you master this champion.
