League of Legends: Wild Rift Jinx Gameplay Tips

Being a marksman, Jinx is usually played in the Dragon Lane accompanied by a Tank to soak damage and provide vision. 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 Jinx guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game in the game.

Early Game

In the early game, it’s relatively difficult for any Marksman to farm on their own. For the ease of farming bring a tank to help you farm. Take the Red Brambleback which provides True Damage to the enemy when you use your basic attack. Last hit the first minion wave and hold on to your lane. Remember destroying the turret plating grants extra gold.

Mid Game

By now you can hold the lane on your own. Let your tank help others to gank. Keep an eye on the map and roam. In the team, you have the most damage dealing ability so always position yourself behind the tank.

Late Game

With all the necessary items with you, you’re now capable of killing mages, marksman, and assassins with a perfectly timed combo. But keep in mind, the enemy has also that amount of damage. So, positioning yourself matters the most. Never engage alone.
Apart from this, accomplish the objectives like clearing lanes, killing the dragon, Baron Nashor and Drakes. You can use your combos like-

Skill 1 + Skill 3 + Skill 2 + Skill 4

Additionally, Jinx forms strong pairs and serves as Best Combos with Leona, Blitzcrank, and Thresh.

Final Thoughts

We can conclude that Jinx is a moderately difficult Marksman with high damage output and sustain. Therefore, keep in mind that your HP is quite less and remember to stay in team fights for kills and securing objectives. 

With the above guide, you can easily practice Jinx in LoL Wild Rift, and before heading to play ranked matches practice a little bit in the PVP mode.
