I've played as jax a lot of times and pwned a lot of champions 1 v 1 and even 1 v 2! in fed conditions jax can even 1 v 3! in a TT map!. after knowing that jax is an OP champion, i decided to go co-op and try to defeat baron nashor. jax defeated baron with 1200 hp left (with hextech gunblade jax gets a lot of hp back, and dps helps him heal much faster with lifesteal)

back to the point
champions that can defeat jax:
* Shaco
* warwick
* malphite
* darius
* olaf

defeating jax 1 vs 1 is not an easy task, but it is possible to shut down jax before late game. try engaging with jax.
PS. defeating jax isn't a child's play, you have to play smart.
in team fights always focus jax first because he is the damage source
the common thing most jax players do is trigger counter strike first, then empower and then leap strike on you, and then trigger the hextech's active to kill u or even drain u down to almost 300 hp - 600 hp in late game. key to defeating jax is that you should have huge amounts of health, Armour, and MR (50% mr and armour is fine and cheap) whenever jax triggers dodge, move away from him (when he triggers counter strike(dodge) his weapon spins around his hands, so just move away from him) and then again start fighting him.

the above stated champions that can defeat jax do both magic and physical damages.

a shaco can spam boxes in a brush and try to harras jax into the brush and then kill him effectively without much ado.

warwick has great healing powers at the start of the game, and he can easily defeat jax till level 8.

malphite is a champion who shut downs ad champions, you just need to get minion fed so that you have the required items to defeat jax.

darius's ult deals true damage, so just try harrasing jax and hit him in short bursts, and then trigger your ult.

olaf also deals true damage and his passive will just shut down jax early- mid game.

just remember to shut down jax early game so he becomes shet late game

---ill continue this guide later, have some work to do lol---

In teamfights he gets nuked down probably first by any caster.

And honestly , new Jax ,after the overhaul, is a Joke compared to the old one and even then i beat him more often then he did beat me as Shaco.

Just to make killing jax even harder, im going to give a tip to anyone playing jax

the common thing most jax players do is trigger counter strike first, then empower and then leap strike on you

Yes, they do do this often, but it is NOT the way you can get the best burst damage. Ive been doing this for a while and it works really well to burst someone really hard (this works even better going pure ad, not as) First, you activate your ult for bonus AD and resist, then jump to them for closing the distance and doing some damage. Once you jump on them hit them with a normal auto attack once, then activate empower right after you attack, this will give you 2 attack and the 2nd one will be empowered, now that you've used all your ability's that will do some good burst damage activate counter strike while waiting for ability's to come off cd, wait as long as you can to stun unless they can get away from you (flash, more speed, etc) so that your ability's will come off as much cd as possible, then stun them and do the same thing as said earlier to your best effect (maybe no leap or ult) This does so much burst, and its almost impossible to run because you arnt just auto attacking.

Your're wasting 2-3s of your ult doing this, and that's bad. The correct order is E, then Q, R, autoattack, W, autoattack, then go from there. Usually, you can nail 4 autoattacks before they can even respond that way and you maximize your R uptime. From there you have the option of using your item actives and/or Ghost/Flash if necessary (usually not needed due to the low cd on Q). Sometimes its best to not use E at all until you've already engaged a target, since E does damage based upon how many attacks you've successfully deflected. In that scenario you would Q, autoattack, R+W, autoattack, then E to setup a more sustained combo vesus a tank or tanky dps opponent. Rushing that E and R is wasted versus an opponent you cannot 5 shot.

Edit: I meant to mention that Jax's ult no longer grants damage at all, only armor and MR. So you do not want to activate it until you anticipate you're about to take damage. That means if you're leading with a E--Q, then you're going to want to wait to use R until after your stun ends, otherwise you're simply throwing your cooldown away for nothing.

stop trying to 1v1 jax and just blow him up in team fights. anything with an execute will do the trick. or you can force him to lane against an AP

Trundle counters Jax completely and entirely, but nobody plays Trundle nowadays.
