Jax also takes 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.

At the end of the duration, Jax Stun icon.png stuns all nearby enemies for 1 second and deals physical damage to them, increased by 20% for each attack dodged, up to a 100% increase.

Info
Notes
  • The initial cast and the manual recast count as ability activations for the purposes of on-cast effects such as Spellblade and stacking Force Pulse Force Pulse.
    • If the ability is not manually recasted, the secondary effect will trigger without being considered as an ability activation.
  • 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.

COST: 100 mana
COOLDOWN: 80
Grandmaster's Might.png

  • Spell Shield.png Spell shield will only block the bonus damage from the third attack if it is empowered empowered.
