decent build, although I never thought of using stark's fervor, but paired with phantom dancers makes attack speed hella good, plus its helping the team, so thanks for that, but I'll stick with regrowth pendant off the start, I'm too aggressive for lifesteal :P

Dodge tanking only works against physical heroes, Jax in general sort of sucks against too many casters.


I wouldn't say Jax sucks persay against casters, it just requires better play like trying to have a stun ready by pulling their mobs/neutrals or going into towers for dodges to proc a stun. Suffice to say it's not easy to get an early kill on a caster but if you pick up all three skills (dodge, then empower or leap in whatever order) you can generally get a kill on a solo caster or jump ahead in exp/gold.

God this build has been awesome for the last few days, winning matches with 10-3 scores and even better I got a 21-1 in a game earlier today. Teaming endgame Jax up with anyone that has a good stun move is just lethal. so much fun.

Oh, it's "Ninja Tabi", not Tabai. Close though.

wow, Jax' lifesteal build has saved my ass on more than one occasion against multiple enemies. It's extremely satisfying to see their health go down and yours go up and they're like, "wasn't I winning just a sec ago?"

Thanks for a good guide

The main problem with a lifesteal build is that you get one stun, snare, fear, etc in a team fight and you'll be dropped so fast because you have no survivability.
