[2.3] JINX GUIDE
Best Build Guide for Jinx
Item Build Description
Additional information on the items
Blade of the Ruined King and Runaan's Hurricane are the core items of Jinx 's build, providing her sustain, %hp damage (effective against tanks) and faster waveclearing. With a "squishy" composition against, you can change Blade of the Ruined King with Infinity Edge as first item, and go for a 100% crit chance build. Guardian Angel is most effective when you have a great advantage and you need to snowball, or you really need it against assassins (Zed, Fizz and others). As boots, both Gluttonous Greaves and Mercury's Treads are both viable (the second one against high CCs compositions), with both Stasis Enchant and Quicksilver Enchant viable as well depending on situation. Mortal Reminder absolutely necessary if you have someone with much sustain or very tanky (like Dr. Mundo , Malphite , Draven and similar).
Best Runes for Jinx
Missing "Lethal Tempo" rune from League of Legends, Conqueror is right now the best main rune for Jinx , providing her bonus AD when she hits an enemy various times. Triumph synergize well with Jinx 's damage output, allowing her to deal more damage to low health target, so helping her activate her passive [jinx:passive] sooner. Bone Plating and Sweet Tooth are mainly for Jinx 's survivability expecially in laning phase.

Jinx Matchups & Counters
Detailed information on how to play matchups and counters
Jinx is one of the best Xayah 's counters right now, because she can bully Xayah from laning phase, even if Jinx can get poked by Xayah's passive Clean Cuts . Jinx has bigger spikes of Xayah in various phases of the game, so it's an easy matchup for Jinx .
Even if off-meta, Ashe can give an hard time to Jinx in laning phase and in the transition of early to mid game. Recommended to buy Mercury's Treads and Quicksilver Enchant against her to negate her CCs.
Draven is a very hard matchup for Jinx . Draven 's burst damage and sustain makes difficult to apply Jinx 's damage output on him. Jinx can use Draven 's Spinning Axe 's passive to know where he gets and shoot him there, or make him miss his axe.
