How it works

  1. You rush Trinity Force.
  2. You play Jax as Bruiser. You build some damage and go tanky.

How to play

  1. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. Are they heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  2. As Jax playing Bruiser, your skill order depends on a situation. In general, max Empower (W) for damage. Against ranged or for reach, max Leap Strike (Q). Against heavy melee or lots of auto attackers, max Counter Strike (E).

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Jax can Leap Strike to friendly units, including wards. You can use them to plan your escape.
  2. Jax benefits greatly from items that have both Ability Power and Attack Damage such as Guinsoo's Rageblade and Hextech Gunblade.
