General info

This comp uses the Dark Star bonus to buff up powerful carries like Jhin. The comp focuses around Jhin, until you are able to hit level 9 to add in a unit like Xerath.

When to make

When you have good items for Jhin. If you have early Dark Star units early, that will help, but don't only buy Dark Star units.

Game plan
Early game

2 frontline and 2 backline of any kind will work, but these transition best.

Mid game

Snipers and Vanguards will be a solid mid game, with 4 Dark Star providing good damage.

Additional comp tips
  • Snipers will do the most damage when placed in the corners, but make sure to scout for enemy Blitzcranks and Zephyrs so you know how to place your Jhin.

  • Since this comp is heavily AD based, you can throw magic damage items on Ashe, or wait until you are able to fit in Xerath.
