Why Jax DOESN'T Need a Phantom Dancer

So I spent a long time playing Jax before I gave up cause he's **** at 5v5. He is great at 3v3 though. The one misconception people have is that as soon as you get Guinsoo's you HAVE to get Phantom Dancer. I don't think that's true at all. Jax is not AS dependent. The point of Guinsoo's is that if anybody thinks they CAN take you 1v1, they soon regret it. But once your Jax is kicking ass, everybody runs, so you need strong AD to keep them around. I personally like to do Tabi, Guinsoo's then Bloodthirster or Cleaver depending on the state. What do you guys think?

"Everybody runs" - So you don't think an item with movement speed, and dodge which would allow you to stun and/or keep up, is a good idea for runners?

I'm confused.

Get Phage/Mallet if you want to stop people from running away, not Phantom Dancer.

Yeah after Guinsoo I would probably go with Mallet.

I go dancer/dancers not for the AS/MS, it's purely for the dodge.

WTB more items with dodge on them!

I saw a jax on TT with 6 pairs of Ninja Tabi...it was a *****. You couldn't hit the sob between all the dodges and stuns he would throw down. His only weakness was the lack of MR...so a AP heavy nuker could end him quick if they got lucky enough to drop their load before he jumped their ass. Other wise it was stun lock...die, or run and die anyways. His damage output despite no true offensive items was still good enough to nail us bad, on TT at least. Prob not viable at all on SR, but funny as a smack in the face with a lampost fopr sure.

Is ninja tabi the most cost-effective dodge item? If so, that's a pretty good idea on TT haha.

You have a 5 second leap and a stun. Why are you worried about people running?

No, he doesnt need a PD. He also doesnt need a Mallet.

All Jax needs is Tabi->RageBlade->Gunblade->Situationals

You dont need items to chase. Jax does it quite well as it is. If you want more, get lizard buff.
