Quick tips to play Jax

Try and stack your Passive up on minions before looking to trade to get extra damage out on from your auto-attacks.

Don’t be trigger happy with your

JaxCounterStrikeE

. Only use it when the enemy is a real threat to you as it does have a long cooldown, and you’re quite vulnerable while it’s down.

To fully utilise your champions kit, make sure you auto-attack before using your

JaxEmpowerTwoW

so you get some extra damage out in a trade.
