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

MarkFromSingedMains says “Submit to the hammer. His E in hammer form is basically a better Singed E and his damage is bonkers. He has all the hard to fight qualities of an AD bruiser whilst also having the hard qualities of an AD ranged. You likely won't win this lane and that's alright. Jayce falls off if you keep him in lane, just weather the storm.”

xPetu says “Recommended: Standard Runes & Teleport Tips: Your W blocks his R-enhanced AA and his CannonW-AAs. Passive shield his Q and AA poke. Engage when he transform from Hammer to Cannon, because then he doesn't have access to Knockback-E during the trade.”
PH45 says “One of the tougher matchups for Jax. He will poke you a lot and if you engage on him he will melee form E you away. Build Steelcaps and try to bait his E. The best moment to engage on him is when he swaps back to cannon form as then he cant knock you away. Jayce's are usually pretty squishy so if he gets caught he should be relatively easy to kill.”
Drake6401 says “Probably won't see him until you get to higher levels because low elo can't play Jayce for this lives. You get a bit of an edge post 6 but staying even for that long is a challenge. Pick a sustain start because Jayce has early mana problems and it will cost him mana to poke you outside of auto attacks which don't do much damage early. Keep minions between you and him so he cannot poke with Q. From my experience, you do outscale this guy if you make it out of laning phase because he doesn't build many defensive stats and is mostly lethality. It will usually require catching him by surprise though because his Hammer form E knocks you away and his Cannon form E gives him moves speed.”

I Am Goliath says “Jayce is pretty hard early game but the longer the game goes the easier this matchup gets, and since Urgot is ranged with a pretty safe kit (having an escape + shield) you should be able to survive, try not to trade with him very much early game and dodge his Q's the best you can. once you have Black cleaver + ninja tabis you should be able to win 1v1, you can also go Q max in this matchup if you're wanting to play more safe and just looking to poke him out of lane since you shouldn't be all inning or trading much early game.”

Sovereign Kitten says “Jayce has been one of the hardest counters, for quite a long time. He has range, gap close, CC, mobility and better wave control and better burst. Avoid getting into an extended fight with Jayce, keep your distance and use minions to body block his (E) > (Q) range combo. Never let him get behind you, he will CC into lane cutting off your only route for escape. Maxing your (Q) can help with poking him from a distance as you want to not get too close. Also be aware that good Jayce players will (Q) > (E) in fast succession making it really hard to dodge his combo. He tends to fall off in comparison to our burst unless he purchases Maw of Malmortious. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP IN HIS FAVOR. DODGE HIS POKE. RUSH STEELCAPS. CONQUEROR IS BETTER FOR CLOSER FIGHTS/IF THE JAYCE IS GOOD. DONT FIGHT BEFORE LEVEL 3. TRY TO FIGHT AT LEVEL 6. Jayce is not too strong in the meta at the moment but a great Jayce player can make him work anyway. Read the Ranged Matchup Playstyle I have written below for a good idea on how to play against all ranged champions. With Jayce, it is recommended to go for an early Steelcaps rush as that will completely gut him. Most Jayce players opt to go for Lethality early on in order to snowball too which would be negated by Tabis. Against Jayce, Conqueror is a must as you won't be building damage early. Try to dodge his skillshot poke early on and get used to it. It does a LOT of damage, even if the Jayce is inting. Being poked down like that can lead to him just killing you in a single combo which is sometimes just sad as you watch yourself try to crawl to him and he knocks you back and puts you down with autos. His form change has a cooldown so you can try to play around him not having access to his melee form if possible. The most important thing when fighting a Jayce is positioning. He is a VERY good trader and E->AA->W->Q Combo is just not going to cut it as he will just dash to you, knock you away, go ranged form, auto you 3 times and then fire his blast at you. And at a closer range like that you will not be able to dodge it which will just lead to you getting pushed out of lane. What you have to do is to just all in him every chance you get. Just drag the fight out. What you have to do is E and then just walk behind him or walk between him and a wall. It is no problem if he knocks you back before you can. Just try to make sure that you E or W him. Darius’ abilites are unstoppable so even if Jayce knocks you back, the slow/pull will still lock him in place which gives you time to catch up to him with ghost. If the E WORKS however, don’t use AA or anything. Just walk behind him and THEN do you combo. He will either A, Flash+knock you back for a disengage or B, knock you back behind him and start kiting you. Ghost will help you catch him at this point. You will probably be able to catch up to him regardless and kill him anyway. A Steelcaps rush helps in a situation like this as it prevents him from killing you before you catch him. If you need even more tankiness, buying and sitting on a Chain Vest is great. A Jayce matchup is somewhat oppressive early on but he really should stand no chance after level 6. Just try not to die to him.”
Anoying bro5 says “Jayce is a big lane bully and will punish you if you let him. Either parry his knock back or when he jumps on you. A lot of Jayce players hold their knockbacks which can be tricky. You mainly want to farm this lane so take corrupting potions or Dorans shield and wait the lane out. You outscale him.”
Olaf Only says “This lane is really easy if you can survive until lvl 6. If he has Phase rush, avoid all-ins and keep poking. Olaf is better in teamfights.”

Stinkee says “A good Jayce is hard to deal with as Sion but most Jayce players are not good enough to abuse you. In most situations you can just slow him with your E and Q him when he tries to go up and poke you. If he jumps on you with hammer form he will try to cancel your Q with he hammer form E. This is fine as it puts your Q on a 2 second cooldown and if you can catch up to him you should be able to win the trade.”

Tips Against Jayce in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

eiensiei says “He won't be able to land his Q if I stay behind my creeps, so I'll go for E-AA trades; if he tries to trade back with E, that puts him in melee range and it's fairly easy to land a Q into another passive proc. He can't out-trade Lux, especially not through her shield. The fact that I buy Seeker's Armguard/Ninja Tabi (or both) gives him just as much of a rough time as his Hexdrinker gives me.”
[11.4] eiensiei's guide to Lux | Mid by eiensiei | Lux Player
Avucado says “Low pick rate mid so I don't have a ton of info for this champ. Don't engage with E. Look for hooks and try to poke him out until you can all in. He's not too tanky but he does take lethality and can easily kill you. Make trades short and save E to get out. Stay behind minions so you don't get hit by his Q. Ganks make him easy to kill.”

RezoneVerified says “Care his Hexdrinker rush. Laning phase will be hard but try to land a grenade when he engages with his Hammer + Q. Without MR he is quite squishy. Pre level 6 you should win the lane.”

Polarshift says “Don't get hit by his projectiles when he shoots them out of vision. Getting tabi's/seekers armguard will make him less of a threat to you. Definitely Jayce favoured, but given you don't die you will outscale him, since he falls of really hard if he can't get ahead.”

Ambitieux says “Jayce is a trickier matchup because of his ability with cannon form. But he is quite squishy. Hide behind minions and push him into turret to look for early game pressure with ur jungle to get an easy gank off. It is not needed to be 6 to have him ganked. Save charm for hammer form. Once he has his hexdrinker try to mostly look for ganks or roaming. If not you can almost always all in him and kill if you have ignite. ”

Yasukeh says “ He's someone who can hard poke you out, then if you try to get on top of him, he can disengage very easily. Try to CS as much as possible without getting poked out pre 6. Phase Rush allows you to chase him down despite all of his disengage. ”

Aegox says “Jayce's early game is extremely strong, stay behind minions and CS as much as you can. you can probably start destroying him really late game.”
LunarVortex says “He hurts. Try to not miss your Q (duh). If you do, he will run you down. Play safe while it is on cooldown. Thankfully, nobody plays this guy. Buy an early Seeker's Armguard if necessary.”

Katawina52 says “Go Dshield and second wind here, Seekers rush is really good aswell. You can go for trades, but make sure you're healthy enough and that you're not fighting in a wave. Make sure to always E out after a trade to prevent his melee trades. You should be able to trigger your abilities before him, so minimizing the time he has to use his after yours is the best approach to the lane, dont bother trading if he has hexdrinker.”

Tips Against Jayce in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Suseri says “Similar to Gnar try fighting after your Items. Safe your Q after his knockback. Get 1 or 2 more points in W if he pokes you to much.”

Ribbit says “I find his range to be extra hard for Jax. He can knock you off of him (Jax has 1 engage), and he can use long range spells instead of autos. His lane pressure is unbeatable sometimes.”
LFS_aXent says “I never found Jayce an actual problem when I was matched agaisnt him. He's very predictable, and easy to dodge with your movement. Considering you'll be a little tanky, dont let it go to your head, he can combo and kill since he builds lethality.”
VTEC Jhin [UPDATED] by LFS_aXent | Jhin Player
McDank says “Avoid his poke. Save your ult for when he tries to go melee on you and make him pay for it.”
KingZogu says “its a tossup when ganking him, depending on his positioning he might be able to hold his ground without having to run to his turret as his E can cause major problems for karthus either slowing you to a slog to maneuver around it or poking you so hard you'll cry Another scenario is that he's over extending and you can either sandwich him with your laner or catch him before he can fully orient himself with his e and close the gap slightly.”

triger34 says “Jayce is hard champion to play against with jax.He has big range,If you try to engage him he can punch with his melee abilities.Try to farm and call you jungler to help you.”

TheFalco62 says “There is not much to do against a skilled jayce. Taking dorans shield and [[resolve]] secondary is good here. He has ranged poke to make sure your shield is always down. He will E you in hammer form to stop your dash onto him and follow up with his burst. You are looking to safely farm with Q and take as little poke as possible. Try have your jungler helping, and play passive until you outscale, or he makes a mistake you can capitalize on.”

WiskeyANDGin says “early game u cant really beat him , only if he is out of mana, in middle or late game try and ult him to get closer to him. The most important thing is not letting him kite or escape”
