Abilities

Edit

Relentless Assault

Relentless Assault.png

Innate: Jax's basic attacks Pix, Faerie Companion.png on-attack grant him a stack of Relentless Assault for 2.5 seconds, stacking up to 8 times while refreshing the duration on subsequent attacks. Each stack grants him 3.5% − 11% (based on level) Attack speed icon.png bonus attack speed, up to 28% − 88% (based on level) at 8 stacks.

Stacks expire one at a time, by one every 0.25 seconds.

Info
  • No additional details.

Edit

Leap Strike

Leap Strike.png

Active: Jax Dash.png dashes to the target unit's location.

If the target is an enemy and they are in range upon arrival, Jax deals them physical damage.

Physical Damage:
65 / 105 / 145 / 185 / 225 (+ 100% bonus AD) (+ 60% AP)

Jax will be ordered to basic attack the target afterwards.

Info

Edit

Empower

Empower.png

Active: Jax's next basic attack or Leap Strike Leap Strike against an enemy within 10 seconds deals bonus magic damage. If Empower is used on a basic attack, it will gain Range icon.png 50 bonus range.

Magic Damage:
40 / 75 / 110 / 145 / 180 (+ 60% AP)

Empower Bladework.png resets Jax's basic attack timer.

Info
  • Empower does not apply to structures nor will it be consumed against them.

Edit

Counter Strike

Counter Strike.png

Active: Jax enters Evasion for 2 seconds: a defensive stance that causes him to Counter Strike.png dodge all incoming non-Turret icon.png turret basic attacks and take 25% Damage reduction icon.png reduced damage from all area of effect abilities sourced from Champion icon.png champions.

Counter Strike can be recast after 1 second, and does so automatically after the duration.

Recast: Jax deals physical damage to nearby enemies, increased by 20% for each attack dodged up to a 100% increase, and Stun icon.png stuns them for 1 second.

Minimum Physical Damage:
55 / 80 / 105 / 130 / 155 (+ 50% bonus AD)
Maximum Physical Damage:
110 / 160 / 210 / 260 / 310 (+ 100% bonus AD)

Info
  • The initial cast and the manual recast count as ability activations for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Sheen item.png Spellblade and stacking Force Pulse Force Pulse.
  • Counter Strike will also dodge abilities that can trigger on-hit effects (Parrrley Parrrley, Mystic Shot Mystic Shot) which will count towards Counter Strike's increased damage. There are exceptions however.

Edit

Grandmaster's Might

Passive: Jax's basic attacks On-hit icon.png on-hit grant a stack for 2.5 seconds, stacking up to 2 times while refreshing the duration on subsequent attacks. At 2 stacks, Jax's next basic attack On-hit icon.png on-hit consumes the stacks to deal bonus magic damage.

Magic damage:
100 / 140 / 180 (+ 70% AP)
Grandmaster's Might.png

Active: Jax gains Armor icon.png bonus armor and Magic resistance icon.png bonus magic resistance for 8 seconds.

Bonus Armor:
30 / 50 / 70 (+ 50% bonus AD)
Bonus Magic Resistance:
30 / 50 / 70 (+ 20% AP)

Info
  • The bonus magic damage can be dodged dodged and blocked blocked but it cannot Blind icon.png miss.
  • The empowered attack at 2 stacks does not activate against structures and wards, thus not consuming the stacks.
  • Grandmaster's Might's bonus resistances are calculated both on-cast and will update dynamically every 0.25 seconds over the duration.
  • Spell Shield.png Spell shield will only block the bonus damage from the third attack if it is empowered empowered.
