Ok, so I'm Jax in 3v3 and every time any tank decides to buy a Thornmail my hp just drains w/in seconds. My item build is mainly attack speed and hp drain w/ a attack. I have tried that one claw that does 4% of max hp as magic dmg it allowed me to halfway kill the tanks any suggestions for me solo'ing a tank w/ Thornmail as Jax?

dude.. thornmail returns physical damage (auto attack) by 30% back to you, so the faster you attack him, the faster you damage yourself xD. also, it gives +100 armor, which is quite a lot. armor penetration will do wonders, and not being totally squishy will help too.

If you can't figure this out, maybe you shouldn't be trying to solo a tank as jax?

Thornmail deals 30% damage as magic damage. magic resist (aegis) will help you with taking away the damage a bit, while making jax a little tougher anyway.

yeah u have to not stack attack speed and more AP/AD. He has speed and you don't need much past rageblade, and you're building rageblade first every time, right?

Stack more damage and your hp will go up and you will need Armor pen like brutalizer and black cleaver. Only speed item i would get is last whisper. But for the most part if everyone on the team gets thornmail that means they are weak because they rushed it or your team should have almost won or you're already losing anyway. After that just don't attack the guy with thornmail. Get some casters or something.

It wouldn't matter if he built more AD instead of attack speed he'd still get hurt.

The only way to counter thornmail is through lifesteal and Magic Resist.

Maybe try not attacking the tank?
Also, 5 bloodthirsters? How long was that game? In 3v3 no less.. :S
Thornmail is not OP, it won't be nerfed or removed.

how do you not attack a hero who's there? i just trot on by him and attack the nexus? and that game was only 40 mins like i said i own w/ jax i was feeding until he got thornmail. and yes 30% dmg reflect is op its ridiculous at least make it cost like 4k instead of 2k
