How it works

  1. You play as Jax Grasp.
  2. Your build is survivability oriented. With some damage and tons of HP and defense.
  3. You auto attack a lot.

How to play

  1. As Jax playing Grasp build - you need ot adapt to an enemy team and to the game! Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. Are they heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.
  2. Remember to consume your Grasp of the Undying procs!
  3. As Jax playing Grasp, 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.
