Who wins the lane? I know counterstrike reduces aoe damage by 25% but would it be enough for jax to win in trades?
depends, i've won and lost it as riven.
Jax and Riven should be pretty equal. It's really hard to take her down early game and you run out of mana really easily. She probably has an edge over you before you reach about 9.
After your Sheen and Wriggles Jax wins, but only if Riven lets Jax get to her. Her mobility is the biggest problem for Jax's stun.
Edit: Jax wins if not for the mana earlygame.
IF you lose that lane as riven pre 6 you're probably not good at riven. (assuming you didn't get camped).
If you stand there and trade directly into Jax's E and then don't dash from stun, well you deserve to lose.
If you bait his E, dash, then rape him with Q, you deserve to win.
Surprisingly i've seen Jax dominate the lane hard. I think jax does more burst earlier in comparison without items
Riven pre six
Jax after six.
Yeah I guess Riven has to play really aggressive pre-lvl4 to win.
Both have some pretty bad sustain until they get lifesteal...
But I would go with Riven on this one. Riven may win the lane, but late game Jax will win the game.
