How to play Jinx




Jinx is a dragon lane champion that focuses on attack damage to kill the enemy team. Jinx is not the best in terms of early game damage. The later the game goes and the more items she gets, the stronger she becomes. This is because of her insane range with her rockets from Switcheroo (1st Ability) and insane attack speed with her mini-gun at close range. She also has one of the best passive's in the game Get Excited. Every time she gets a takedown she gains attack speed (exceeding the maximum attack speed limit) and a bunch of movement speed to chase down enemies and kill everyone.

Jinx Build Breakdown


Blade of the Ruined King
Infinity Edge
Runaan's Hurricane
Mortal Reminder
Guardian Angel
Gluttonous Greaves - Quicksilver

Jinx does really well when building attack damage items and also benefits a lot from attack speed. Blade Of The Ruined King is a perfect 1st item for Jinx. It gives her attack damage and attack speed that is needed but also has a great passive. The passive is when you hit a champion with 3 basic attacks or abilities steals movement speed from that champion. Blade also gives you physical vamp which can help Jinx survive in the early laning phases. Runaan's Hurricane is another core item for Jinx. When you auto-attack you strike 2 additional enemies that are nearby. This is a really good item in combination with the rockets from Jinx's 1st ability. Not only will your attacks spread but they also will be doing area of effect damage from the rockets.


Onto the runes, we have:

Conqueror

With the high attack speed and long range, Jinx can get stacks really easily. This allows you to deal even more damage.

Brutal

This helps out Jinx in the early game get that extra bit of damage when last hitting minions and trading vs the enemy champion.

Hunter - Titan

As an AD Carry you will always find yourself either getting a lot of kills or assists which works really well with this rune. You will gain health each time you get a unique takedown.

Mastermind

A very unique rune for Jinx. She takes towers very quickly with mini-gun so always look to use this to your advantage and get early towers to get more gold and XP. Not only that but also her Super Mega Death Rocket (Ultimate) does insane damage to objectives early on so it's great for trying to get them clutch steals.

Flash
Barrier

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get you out of a bad situation or allows you to flash into the team to get that killing blow! The go-to 2nd spell is Barrier. The most important thing to note with barrier is that it does not last a long time so you need to make sure you use it when you are about to take damage.

Early Game


Jinx is not the best champion in the early game. You can use Jinx's rockets from Switcheroo (1st Ability) to try and poke down the enemy but be careful as every auto-attack will cost mana so don't waste it all at once, make sure you use the minigun to last hit minions so you can save your mana for rockets and your other abilities. You want to stay as passive as you can and try not to die so you can farm up to get your core items.

Late Game


Once you reach the late game and have your core items this is where Jinx can use her Rockets at range and kill the whole team. Make sure you slow down the enemies with Zap (2nd Ability) and when you are in trouble use Flame Chompers (3rd Ability) to trap the enemies and escape. It's always best as an AD Carry to stay grouped with your team. You want to stay as far back from the enemies as possible and allow your front line to go in front of you to tank all the damage. Most of the time you are the main damage output, so if you are caught by yourself and die then your team is in trouble, so make sure you stay safe at all times.

Conclusion


Jinx is a great starter champion if you want to give Dragon Lane a try! Her abilities are really simple and she has a great play style for beginners that are just starting to play Wild Rift. If you're looking for a champion that is really strong in the late game and has the potential to solo carry team fights with good positioning then Jinx is the right champion for you!
