This. Bomb on Jax Leap Strike.

Soraka is also very good. Constant mana and heal he can harass like hell.

Taric, Sona, Janna Right behind.

Janna> All
Shield with AD = extra HP for Jax b/c passive.

You're forgetting Blitzcrank. he grabs the fools and drags them into turrets or to jax, allowing jax to refresh cooldowns and destroy even more.

You're forgetting Blitzcrank! He grabs people and drags them back to him/jack allowing more time for another combo of destruction.

Though I've never run with a healer.... :P

Xin + Jax is a nightmare lane.. at least for me.

i'm trying to take the worst case scenario for every lane setup.

with xin+jax or jarvan+jax we would have a really, really hard time, against ranged + support.
if jax jumps the ranged, he'll get stunned, and the enemy retreats, while doing some more dmg on jax, and healing up the dmg they took

so far janna seems to be the best pick (not including maokai)
but her ulti has bad synergy with jax

Jax Jumps on the ranged, Xin charges in knocks up, they die. You now dominate the lane.

You just have to play aggressive vs ranged... unless they're Caitlyn, who is usually mid.

Mao is a great partner, especially if twisted advance is taken first. Jax can muder anyone at level one and if they're rooted, goodbye! This will give you a great start at your lane and ensure a quick turret. Just don't zone them out with sapling since Jax need them up close for face smashing and mao needs them up close for roots.

Finally convinced one of my friends to quit playing Miss Fortune / Caitlyn for a game or two and we duo'd as Jax and Soraka. Definitely encourage someone to try that, but any other support looks like a great combination. You don't want to eat up the CS from a Jax by duo'ing with someone who needs it.

I'd say janna will be really nice.
Shield will up his qw combo's damage as well as protect him from the usual damage he gets while doing it.
