Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Critical Strike

This build is the classic JhinJhin build. Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge and Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon are core items on this hero. We go Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade because Jhin is incredibly slow at walking without this item. It is also cheaper than Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge which means if you CS right, you can get it before the first Dragon. 

For the boots, always get Boots of SwiftnessBoots of Swiftness . With Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade , this makes you quite fast and can help in teamfight positioning. Tier 3 enchants are [stasis enchant], for reasons I need not explain. Quicksilver EnchantQuicksilver Enchant is also a good alternative if there are no hard lockdown or assassins that can burst you. A less common one is Protobelt EnchantProtobelt Enchant . Only ever get this when you are ahead, and the enemy team cannot punish the lack of a safety net in your build. 

Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder is always good, and Guardian AngelGuardian Angel never hurts on immobile ADCs.

One thing is, you can replace Guardian AngelGuardian Angel for Phantom DancerPhantom Dancer . It saves you sometimes, but again most of the time, Guardian AngelGuardian Angel is better.


Lethality

Only ever do this build if you crushed the lane. Reasoning is that this allows you to make your lead even larger. This build can make you one or two-shot some targets compared to a Critical Strike build which usually takes three shots to kill. Youmuu's GhostbladeYoumuu's Ghostblade and Duskblade of DraktharrDuskblade of Draktharr gives you a lot of armor penetration. 

Infinity EdgeInfinity Edge and Rapid FirecannonRapid Firecannon are self-explanatory, and Guardian AngelGuardian Angel is never bad.

The boot enchantments are the same as mentioned above.

During my play, I found that ConquerorConqueror is usually better on JhinJhin . It is much better than that Energized effect Fleet FootworkFleet Footwork gives you.

Hunter VampirismHunter Vampirism is always nice. It gives you that physical vamp, which is good for lane trading.

Hunter TitanHunter Titan is nice because of the tenacity it gives. When you don't need tenacity (although I doubt that happens), you can go for Adaptive CarapaceAdaptive Carapace .

Sweet ToothSweet Tooth is self-explanatory.

Combos

Dancing Grenade
1st
Auto Attack
AA
Deadly Flourish
2nd
Captive Audience
3rd
Curtain Call
Ult

This combo is good for the laning phase. Most of the time, you don't need to commit the ultimate. This essentially ensures that you get some reasonable amount of poke in lane.

Captive Audience
3rd
Deadly Flourish
2nd
Curtain Call
Ult

A simple root. Remember that you traps automatically mark the target when they step on it. Take note of this, root them and find the right timing to go all in.

THE BASICS

1. Jhin has lots of damage on his fourth attack due to WhisperWhisper . It may take some time to get used to this, but learn to last hit minions using this. Another use for this is poking the enemy. Learn to threaten your enemy by getting a little aggressive when your fourth shot is available.

2. In conjunction with the first point, you can last hit with Dancing GrenadeDancing Grenade . Keep in mind that this bounces four times, and always prefers champions over minions. Aim the skill to get a feel for it's bounce range, and learn to poke your enemies when they walk up the the minion wave. In addition to your fourth shot, this can deal a chunk to your enemy's health.

3. Deadly FlourishDeadly Flourish can be used to poke your enemy, or clear the minion wave with Dancing GrenadeDancing Grenade . Do not forget that this ability has quite the long cooldown at level 1, so use it sparingly to avoid not having it in better situations. With Captive AudienceCaptive Audience , you can root people.

4. Captive AudienceCaptive Audience has multiple uses. It can be used as mini-wards. Placing them in bushes also gives vision and slows. This is helpful for when you're pushing the lane. Always remember to put a trap in the river entrance whenever it comes off cooldown. Since Captive AudienceCaptive Audience also slows, with the item build, you can catch up to your target and place a trap in front of them to slow them down. It also marks the enemy when they step on it, so you have a great root available.

5. His Curtain CallCurtain Call is not just a finisher. It is good for stealing major objectives like dragons or Baron Nashor, as the fourth shot from Curtain CallCurtain Call is stronger than the other three. It can also be used to slow down escaping targets when your jungler goes for a gank. The slow is quite helpful for your team to close the gap. Always mind your positioning when activating Curtain CallCurtain Call , as it can kill you if you're not careful.

Jhin

THE END

Although Jhin isn't a top ADC right now, he has the power to carry games all by himself. Have fun in your games by creating pieces of art with the blood of your victims.
