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's Abilities


Get Excited! (Passive)

When Jinx gets a takedown on a champion or structure that she has damaged within the last few seconds, she gets bonus movement and attack speed for a few seconds. This makes Jinx insanely strong and unstoppable in the late game and the attack speed can go over the cap.

Switcheroo! (1)

This allows Jinx to swap between her weapons, Fishbones the Rocket Launcher and Pow-Pow the Minigun. Fishbone's attacks cost mana but gain long-range and explode to deal damage to the target and enemies around it. When using Fishbones, your mana goes down fast so make sure you use it at the right times (when you're at the back of team fights and want to stay away from the enemies carries).

Pow-Pow's attacks grant bonus attack speed for a few seconds. This effect stacks up to 3 times gaining more attack speed each time. Pow-Pow also has shorter range compared to Fishbones, but it's great for single target damage and when you get into 1 vs 1 situations.

Zap! (2)

Jinx fires a shock blast that deals damage to the first enemy hit, applying slow. This ability is a long-range poke and is great during laning phases and to finish off an enemy at range. Zap is also great for checking bushes, dragons or baron to see where the enemy team is if you have no vision.

Flame Chompers! (3)

Tosses out 3 chompers that arm after a brief delay. Chompers explode on contact with enemy champions, interrupting their dashes and rooting them. Chompers last for a few seconds and will explode automatically if no champion triggers them. This ability is Jinx's only crowd control and self-peel ability to help keep herself alive.

It has a long cooldown so it's best to know when to use them. Use this ability to block off the enemy's escape routes or in a choke point so the enemy can't go through. You can also use this ability as protection from melee champions. When they jump onto you, just tap the ability to throw the chompers below you and you will have a bit of time to walk away to keep your distance.

Super Mega Death Rocket! (Ultimate)

Fires a mega-rocket that gains damage and speed over the first second it travels. The rocket explodes on the first enemy champion hit, dealing damage. This ultimate is global, meaning the ability can travel across the whole map. This ultimate is a great execution tool as it does more damage if the enemy is missing more health.

Not only does this help when killing champions, this can also help when trying to steal dragons or baron, just make sure you hit a champion for it to explode.

Jinx Build Breakdown


Infinity Edge
Runaan's Hurricane
Rapid Firecannon
Mortal Reminder
Guardian Angel
Gluttonous Greaves - Quicksilver

Jinx does really well when building attack damage items and also benefits a lot from attack speed. Infinity Edge is a powerful first item for Jinx. It gives you a lot of single target damage that can work really well early on because if you can get an early takedown in a teamfight you can get access to your passive and start running around the map and killing everyone. 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.

Hunter - Vampirism

The only problem with this build is that there is not a lot of physical vamp to help keep Jinx alive. This is where vampirism comes in to help. As an AD Carry, you will always find yourself getting takedowns which will allow you to get more AD and vamp.

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.

Sweet Tooth

A great rune for if you get low in the laning phase and need that extra bit of healing and get some free money.

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!
