I dont see him fitting in with the carries bottom or the solos top but maybe the jungle would work nice for him with something like a wriggles,wits end,mallet or maybe a trinity force as he seems to use his spells alot finishing off with randuins and another defence item.

He can definitely solo top and carry bot. His early level harass, if you can land it, is insane.

Jayce's early Jungle skill power curve is REALLY wonky.

W is the best level one skill, by far, and Q+W is the best level 2 setup followed closely by Q+E, but 2Q + 1E is the strongest skill set at level 3 for jungling, so inevitably you're going to be weaker than you could be at some point.

He's extremely hard to keep safe in the jungle with any build that isn't Cloth5, until you hit level 5, when through the wonders of synergy, your 3 points in Q through E + Hammer Q completely destroys minor minions no matter what your starting item choice, and he magically goes from an HPNegative jungle to an HPPositive jungle instantly.

The thing is, a Cloth5 start slows him down from reaching that level 5 by about 45 seconds on nothing but jungle mobs. It's got a roughly equivalent level 4 time, but you've got a lot of running to do to get to the small camps you need for level 5, with subpar ganking ability because of his 310 base MS. At the same time, a Boots start without a good leash will most likely leave your HP too low to gank.

Overall, Jayce is probably the most leash dependent champion in the game. The effectiveness of his clear is completely based on how quickly he levels and how much damage he takes early, and by the time you'd have the money to get it, Wriggles is completely unnecessary. If you can get a HARD leash and hold Smite on the blue buff, you can safely start Boots + Q and go for the level 3 strength of 2Q+E with a level 4 gank.

He's capable, but probably not viable. If you take even a little bit too much damage, or if you're counterjungled at all, it completely cripples him.

yeah but when you think about if you go carry then you lose your ability to use your hammer form which is really powerfull becasue if you jump on some one with it ona team fight you will get 2 hit, and top if you build him really tanky to go top cuz most tops are tanky ppl or brusiers then he cant use his other forms well.

Jump on their support, knock away their carry and secure the kill. Then switch to your cannon and use your hyper-gate to escape, and to launch a shock blast through to the enemy carry probably chasing you.

He's a very viable carry for bottom lane. And he never runs out of mana.

Jayce can pretty much play wherever he wants. Top, Bot, Jungle... maybe mid.

You underestimate how much the cd increase on his Q will hurt him
