I just played a match where I started with Doran's Blade, and it made a big difference. I still took some early deaths, but not nearly as many.

After Doran's I went with the Rageblade, then the Ninja Tabi, then Bloodthirster. After that I got Lich Bane, but the game was already pretty much done.

I find it usfull to pick up one level of empower early on to help with harassment. Empower>leap>counterstrike(if avaible) can be nice harassment (depending on who you lane agaisnt) Granted empower doesnt hurt as bad as pre-buff, but it is alot easier to get off becuase they dont run away ****ping their pants when they see your lamppost glowing lol.

Don't always buy dodge boots, but buy them more often then any other

for dmg, get Ap first, rageblade works wonders and is only about 2k

after that there are some good options:

Trinity, Atmas, Bloodthirster

Trinity gives you everything you need, but at the cost of being expensive

Atmas gives you more survivability with a nice dmg boost

Bloodthirster gives you alot more dmg, with a nice health boost


The best jax is hybrid jax, because AP scales so well early game, but piss poor late game... use that to your advantage since jax has great AP ratios
What i do is
1.) Doran's Sheild
2.) Ninja Tabi (unless it is a stun/magic intensive team then merc)
3.) Rageblade
4.) Bloodthirster or Infinity...i have been liking Bloodthirster better though

Game is over when i have my blood thirster normally, so i havn't had a chance to try much else. I have seen a Jax use the same build as me except he got a soulstealer and he was being a pain. I am not a fan of snowball items myself but i have considered throwing it in before/after rageblade.

SO if 2 ranged guys can completly contain early jax...and they can.... isnt that a probelm?

That makes him weak, he will remain outfarmed to these guys. They will be rich and the same level. And he is no good without gear, so he needs to not be outfarmed.

I feel like some more magic resist would really help with this problem.
Ask for a lane change.
