“Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite
Tips: Your W blocks his W and Passive R. Fight him with Q and when he E's, wait 0.75 sec and then E backwards through him to prevent stun completely. Repeat this and win the lane.”
“If the Jax you are fighting is going (E) into (Q) into (W) you simply hold your blind for when he initially lands on top of you. This will prevent empowered damage once you are stunned. However, if he is using (W) into (Q) into (E) you will most likely have a very bad time since you can not blind that initial combo so (Q) him after he is on top of you and he uses his (E). Don't attack him while he is in his (E). BOTRK was buffed and it makes him an absolute monster late game, so try and close out the game before it gets to this point. Focus all of your attention to (Q) him in fights.
you can fight him level 6 but I like to bait out his Ult so I dont have to damage through the insane amount of armor he gets from it.
Play around your Conqueror.
Try to parry his Counterstrike, if you're able to do it you will win the trade. *Some Jax will vary the timing at which they stun you so you're gonna have to learn to predict that*”
“Jax wins if his stun is up if (14-8 sec cd if no cdr).
If you can bait it, then you have a small window to trade before it comes up again.”
“He beats you level 1 unless you have minions set up for passive, but usually its better to start with e. Don’t be afraid to auto him because if he presses e then you can just simply stun him and run away. This will screw up the wave and it will push to you and you can keep going for sneaky autos because your auto range is a lot longer but if you just go for farm its also fine. You can use this to get level advantages which are pretty big early on. Try to keep your passive at 5 stacks and auto attacking him whenever he is in range, if he is close enough you go for an e and if you land your e don’t be afraid to q on him and auto. After lvl 6 It gets easier but it also gets very punishing if you make any mistakes after this point. At level 6 jax gets a lot of extra damage from his R passive every third auto and is really tanky with his ult. You have to start with a full passive in every fight and you also have to make sure that his passive is not stacked, if it is his full passive is stronger than yours. This is generally how the lane plays out until level 11. If you have not gotten ahead of him after lvl 11 do not try to 1v1 him unless you have help on the way. His ult passive does too much damage and his E cooldown will be very short but if you are ahead the same concept from above applies.
“TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP. KEEP AN EYE ON HIS PASSIVE STACKS. HE CAN DODGE YOUR Q EASILY WITH HIS Q. IF HE JUMPS IN AND USES COUNTER STRIKE, USE E AND THEN Q WHILE WALKING AWAY. DON’T TAKE TOO MANY BAD TRADES. FREEZE WAVE INTO HIM. HE SUCKS VS FREEZES. CONQUEROR IS GOOD. Jax is a very strong champion and can be tricky to beat for a newer Dariuses. You really do not want to die to Jax in this lane. If he gets fed he will be too strong to match on a splitpush and will easily be able to 1v2. The removal of Spear was nice as you can actually play around his E now as opposed to him permeanently having it up before. But a Bork rush also makes Jax INSANELY hard to 1v1. This is why a Bramble + Steelcap rush is very effective against him. But if he goes for Triforce/Sunderer, just go for Steelcaps. If he takes E level 1 which is what most Jaxes take, try to land as many Qs onto him as possible. You want him to use up his corrupt pot stacks as much as possible as him surviving your bleed stacks thanks to it is the most tilting thing on the planet. A good Jax will most likely jump into you with Q if you try to Q him so try to be wary of that. If he jumps onto you with his counter strike up, you want to pull him in and then Q him as you walk out. This will give you both free damage and stop him from properly utilising his stun. You want to keep an eye out on his passive, as if he attacks you with it stacked up, he will beat you down very quickly. You treat Jax like you would most other DPS heavy toplaners. By kiting him. Having a higher AA range along with ghost and your W slow makes this very doable. Try not to use your W when he uses counter strike. There is a trick you can pull off where you activate your W and then hit him with it JUST as the stun goes off. This way, even if you are stunned, the animation for the W will continue playing and it will actually hit him. But doing this requires you to have knowledge of how long Jax’ counter strike is. He is VERY easy to kill if you have the wave pushed into your side of the lane and you spike harder than him at level 6 (provided you are both at high hp). Steelcaps + Bramble is a good combo vs him. If he goes ignite, DO NOT FORCE ALL INS WHEN YOU ARE LOW HP. HE WILL BEAT YOU. If you are a higher elo player and have better wave control, try your hardest to thin the wave before it hits your turret. Your goal is to make sure that the wave gets stuck juuust outside your turret. This is the prime all in distance, because at this point, Jax cannot Q into your Q because he will take turret shots. This is the point where you want to sneak in a few stacks on to him here and there while he is trying to shove the lane and then try to all in him with Ghost. But for this to be even possible, you HAVE to thin the wave a bit.”
“Hard matchup if the jax is good, I recommend going PTA in this lane and playing for the early game because he is very squishy early, the big things against jax is you don't want to fight him if he gets his passive stacked up on minions first so don't let him do that on minion waves, and the other big thing is his counterstrike blocks your W, so in this matchup I like to E into his counterstrike right when I think he is going to release it, to do this you have to first bait his counterstrike out first with auto attacks which most of them will do, and then just E into him right as it's going off (they can activate it early so you have to judge the timing) and then you can trade with W, overall this matchup isn't too bad unless the jax is really good, you can be very agressive early on in this lane, and you will also outscale jax surprisingly now that spear of shojin is gone.”
“Scary matchup if vs a decent Jax.
E away from him when he Q jumps on you. You will NOT escape his Counterstrike Stun range BUT you can get away from him while Counterstrike is active so he wont auto you for free!
YOUR W Armor/Magic Resist buff is VERY strong vs him due to Jax being Mixed Damage!”
“Season 11 Jax was a lot weaker compared to season 9/10 (imo). This used to be an unlaneable matchup. Now there are ways to deal with him. Level 1, walk up and allow him to E you and the wave. Boneplating should block some damage so it doesn't hurt too much. This allows him to push into you faster. Try to stand in the pocket in front of your turret, so he cannot full shove the wave into you. Sit there and afk farm. First back bramble kindlegem. This should completely stonewall jax from killing you. Upon 2nd back (sheen), look for all ins. Ping mia if Jax is off the map, he can easily get random kills which is probably the most annoying part. Mid- Late Nasus hard out teamfights Jax. Force fights at objectives to prevent Jax from splitting all game.”
“Mostly skill matchup. It's a fight of "I dare you". You always want to work around Jax's E. If he fails to block your stun, you win. If you try to stun his dodge mode, you lose.
You want trades to be short and he likes them long. His Q makes this tricky. To counter this, I suggest not using E as your engage. You both have no ranged poke so he can't kite you. Try to outsmart his stun and hit yours. At the point use your dashes to either chase him for double dash to a safe distance for round 2.”
