jax is free on rotation this week and I decided to try him. I found out that I really like him and I use AD for him but I've seen a lot of attack speed Jaxes using phantoms etc, while I use bloodthirsters etc and it works very well for me (10/0/x scores etc) but I was wondering does attack speed jax work?

Build rageblade and watch as you faceroll everything.

Yeah I always get that ;p

I get ninja boots > rageblade > mallet > bloodthirster > something else I forgot. But does attack speed jax phantoms and all work?

Rageblade+Jax's passive will give you around 1.8 attacks per second. Anything over 90% AS is probably wasted because you'll cap out at 2.5 attacks/second.

I use attack speed Jax for Twisted Treeline. Rush Malady and you can grab all of the buffs on the map!

Does rageblade stack? - Or will you just build stacks of the effect faster? Or nothing?

my build currently is:
-ninja tabi
-rageblade
-hextech
-atma
-Banshee if there are much casters, mallet if not

2x rageblade doesn't stack, but you gain stacks at double speed.

You can basically fit 1 IAS item after Rageblade, pick wisely - usually for AD-centric build you would get Last Whisper.

But your passive gives you HP only from AP and AD, so Phantom is considered a fairly weak item for him right now, except perhaps on the rare occasion that you face a team that is only physical DPS and support, in which case the Dodge and chain Stun could still work out well.

Personally I've switched to a fully AP build after the Rageblade, in which case if you really still want more Attack Speed, then Nashor's would be your friend. I prefer to go Rageblade > Rylai's > Lich Bane though, and if the game continues, work on a Zhonya's. There's nothing quite like doing an Empower + Leap Strike for 1000+.

You could get Rageblade and then a nice big item like IE. Otherwise what else is possible for Jax would be the Gunblade thing, Atma's, and then evaluate the team.

You don't need that much AS for Jax. Rageblade and his Ult give you quite a bit. Late game if you are getting Elixers, Elixer of Agility will cover whatever AS gap you may have pretty well.
