League of Legends: Wild Rift Jax Gameplay Tips

As mentioned above Jax as a Fighter, is usually played in Baron Lane. With his abilities and skillsets, Jax is better played as a solo Fighter. The Wild Rift’s map is a mirror so understand the map side before laning. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Jax guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game.

Early Game

In the early game, Jax is very squishy and handling Baron Lane is quite a difficult task. The enemy will probably be a Marksman accompanied by a Tank. Never engage as you don’t have enough damage and the enemy tank will be interrupting you while you target for their Marksman. Keep clearing the minion wave and ping for help if you are constantly ganked. Always remember to have map awareness and complete the objectives.

Mid Game

With enough farming, you must have grabbed two core items of Jax. Try to execute your combos on time, while engaging with the enemy. Use your skill 1 for escaping by using it on minions. By now your whole team must be rotating and you must target the DPS champions. Use your skill 2 to stun them and help your team for a group fight. And as always secure the objectives.

Late Game

Jax scales up with his level. At this stage, he can pretty much 1vs2 if you are ahead in gold. And also the enemy champion would not come near to you for a clash if they do not have any dash or blink skill. This stage would be the right time for team fight. Always strike at the backline of the enemy. Your main priority should be slaying the enemy carry. Use your summoner spells judiciously as they have a long cooldown. Hide in bushes and surprise them by using his combos. You can use your combos like-

Skill 1 + Skill 3 + Skill 2

Additionally, Jax forms strong pairs and serves as Best Combos with Ahri, Oriana and Master Yi.

Final Thoughts

We can conclude that Jax is moderately difficult to play Fighter with massive hybrid damage output. Go for securing objectives like Towers, Drakes, etc. With the above guide, you can easily practice Jax in LoL Wild Rift. As mentioned about the difficulty of the champion, it requires quite a practice to land perfectly timed combos. Play a few matched in Normal PVP and then head off to Ranked.
