Tips Against Jax in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

I Am Goliath says “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.”

RivalOCE says “Riven can safe trade at level 3. Lead with Q, auto, W, auto and disengage. Jax will either take the trade or Q and E on you, which you can just E the damage away or look to all in. After his E is down, Jax loses really hard. Look to build advantages early, Jax wins hard with items.”

Anoying bro5 says “If he takes E lvl1 dont fight him and possibly even Q out of the range if necessary. His counterstrike can be triggered early and there is about a .75 sec window of failure. I usually count 1 sec in my head and then parry, but it depends on the player. You have to get used to their style as this is a skill match up. lvl 3 and on, look to riposte as soon as he Q dashes onto you. You will negate all the high dmg, and when he Es after, Q out of the way or walk (since he should be slowed by riposte) and then rengage on him and you win.”

MrDomian says “Don't go into long exchanges. It is most effective to use Q frequently. If he misuses the jump, destroy it with your R.”
kimmothy says “Beat him pre 6 and keep him down. If not he will outscale with his mix damage and e cooldown later on in the game. Grasp bone plating”
SaltCat says “So you would have realise irelia loses to broken champs ;D, jax wins level 1 if he started e , you beat him if waste his e, if not then you lose, try to use your q on minions to dodge his e ”
PH45 says “Make sure to not use your W when he uses his E since it block your knockback autoattack. Can also jump away from you so can be tricky to kill. With junglers help and your lockdown you should be able to kill him unless his ahead a lot or you don't make unnecessary mistakes.”
RTO says “if you can bait out his E, then you should be able to out trade him. If you waste your W on his E, then he can probably kill you. ”

PH45 says “You can outsustain him but if he gets a chance to all in you and you miss your Q you are forced to burn Flash to get away during early game. Get Steelcaps and potentially a bramble vest and he is much less threatening. He is quite squishy so he can actually die quite easily if his E is down.”
quinn adc says “Jax is an incredibly easy matchup. The main point to note is that Quinn's E can cancel Jax's Q damage and it will interrupt his Leap from his Q. To play this matchup, save your vault in lane only to counter Jax's engage. Typically, Jax will active his E, Counter Strike momentarily before he will engage with his Q. The timing is important, but essentially just be ready to vault Jax when he is in mid air. By doing this, you should leap out before he could get his stun off, and if you can avoid being stunned by his counter strike, then the matchup is quite easy. Keep in mind that Jax's Q is now on an incredibly low cooldown, so he can leap onto you before your vault will come back up. If you use your vault at all against Jax, be mindful of your positioning and do not walk in leap range of jax if your vault is down. If you are able to successfully dodge Jax's E stun, then you should aggressively auto attack him quite a bit because he will have no way to trade with you cancel his leap/counter strike. Important interaction is that Jax CANNOT use his Q to hop onto wards OR enemy champions, including you, if he is blinded. If Jax activates counter strike and you blind him, he is unable to leap onto you so long as you stay out of his vision range, so you can screw jax over super hard if you're able to do this :) If you have the opportunity to trade flash for flash with jax, do it becasue his only counterplay is E-Flashing you. If he doesnt have flash, you can E his Q jump, and then run him down after because he has no way to ever land his E stun on you without flash.”
