Dont take Phantom before bloodthirster : with ulti and rageblade you have high AS already after a few hits, but you lack DMG. Phantom should be taken much later, if ever.

Personaly i wouldn't take phantom dancer at all (unless they have a team of ALL AD) if you lurk the forum a little more you will find out that attack speed is pretty useless especially on jax and crit is meh, but phantom dancer is too expensive for what it does what i do on jax is
1.Tabi
2.Rageblade
3.Situational HP item(Sunfire/Force of Nature)
4.BloodThirster
5.Gunblade(remember to use the slow)
6.Situational item

I recommend a dodge/AS rune page for maximum effectiveness.

Get your ult (R) whenever you can. Max out leap strike (Q) as quick as possible. Get at least one level of each of W and E quickly.

I don't see much difference between W and E and which to max first, but I've heard that W is the better skill to max.

Something like:

Q, E, W, Q, Q, R, Q, W, Q, W, R, W, W, E, R, E, E, E.

That's actually a very good order of items for Jax, IMHO. You get your dodge and your rageblade quick, then get a defensive item to help keep alive, then your lifesteal item, then back to the spendy gunblade.

Atmas is better than sunfire for jax. Only situation I wouldnt get atmas on him is if you're against full magic damage, in which case id get FoN/Banshees.
