The new character of the game will be Jinx, a belly-to-the-ground hoodlum. Looking at League of Legends Jinx, most people see a crazy girl with a deadly weapons arsenal. But some remember the almost innocent girl from Zaun, with big plans for the future, who did not want to adapt to others. No one knows how this sweet child turned into a reckless bully, notorious for her thirst for destruction. But the fact remains: as soon as Jinx burst into Piltover like a hurricane, legends began to circulate about her unique talent to cause mayhem.
At first glance, it seemed that the unknown weirdo chose her goals by chance and was driven solely by the desire to sow chaos. And yet, her tricks led to unspeakable havoc.
Of course, the city guards attributed some of her antics to gangs of cheated punks from the lower city. Jinx did not like that her crazy plans were credited to someone else, so she began to try to be noticed at the scene of every crime. And soon, they started talking about the mysterious blue-haired girl from Zaun in the city, carrying with her a chemical explosive, a grenade launcher in the shape of a sharp-toothed shark, and a repeating gun. However, the authorities considered these rumors to be sheer nonsense. Indeed, where would such a formidable weapon come from among the street scum?
It seemed that the series of daring crimes Jinx would never end, and the guards’ attempts to apprehend the intruder invariably failed. At the crime scenes, she began to leave bright inscriptions and other mocking messages to Peacekeeper Wai, Sheriff Piltover’s new ally in the fight against crime.
Over time, Jinx’s fame grew. The opinions of the zaunites were divided: some considered her a hero. Others called her a dangerous psycho who threatened to worsen the already strained relations between the two cities.
A few frantic months later, Jinx revealed her wildest intentions. On the Eclipse Vault walls, one of Piltover’s most trusted treasures, she has painted an extremely unflattering Peacekeeper Vai’s caricature with her signature bright pink color, accompanied by a detailed plan of her future heist of the vault.
In the days remaining before the date of the promised robbery, suspense reigned in Piltover and Zaun. Many even doubted that the criminal would have the courage to appear where she would almost certainly fall into the hands of justice.
Jinx still walks free, remaining an eternal headache for Piltover. Her antics gave rise to imitators, a lot of satirical performances ridiculing the guards, and even a few new colloquial expressions in both cities. Until now, no one knows what Jinx is seeking, but one thing is for sure: she is not going to stop and commits more desperate and reckless crimes.
Under normal conditions, high movement speed allows you to pursue enemies very effectively when it comes to team battles. The undoubted skill advantage is that it works even if Jinx helps in killing the enemy. It gives an incredibly massive bonus to movement speed and a decent duration (but the acceleration effectiveness will gradually weaken). Frequently, it helps to get out of the battle after a successful lightning-fast kill. The attack speed bonus will also be useful, but it will only work if we kill or help kill more than one champion enemy.
The main Jinx’s feature is the ability to switch between weapons instantly. The machine gun is great for shooting a single enemy in no time, and the bazooka is ideal for massive battles, as it has splash damage and increased firing range. You could run with one bazooka, but in this mode, it won’t last long. Please note that if you first fired a machine gun and then suddenly switched to the bazooka, the attack speed bonus would disappear instantly. In general, you need to learn how to combine weapons and understand when to use them.
Zap’s a solid fighting skill, which deals good damage and slows down the target. Unfortunately, the skill has a preparation time, and the enemy can dodge the projectile. Besides, only the first target receives damage, and if the enemy is hiding behind the minions, it will be challenging to hit him. The skill has a good increase in damage, and even at a game’s later stage, deals decent damage.
It’s the greatest controlling skill. Of course, traps do not last forever, but there are 3 of them, and enemies are likely to step on them. It is especially good to use the skill after your ally has already applied some control skill to the enemy. In this case, traps can be thrown directly at the controlled enemy and thereby prolonging the target’s control. Please note that the trap does not stun but chases the enemy to the ground. The enemy can still attack or use skills but cannot move.
It’s the most challenging skill to apply. It can be compared to Ezreal’s Trueshot Barrage Ultimate or Ash’s Enchanted Crystal Arrow Ultimate. The ult deals a lot of damage, especially if the target is already pretty beaten, but the ult still needs to be hit, and this is the most difficult thing. The ult is often not applied immediately since the damage is highly dependent on the target’s missing health. In other words, the skill is ideal for finishing off fleeing enemies. The range of the ult is not limited.
Jinx can safely launch a rocket from the bottom lane and hit the enemy, for example, on the top lane, but it is vital to understand that the farther the rocket flies, the harder it is to hit. Please note that the ult can hit several targets at once. The rocket crashes into one target and hits those nearby. Neighboring targets do not receive full damage, but the total damage is impressive. It is especially good to use the skill in team battles since, it will be much easier to hit with a rocket.
If there are champions in the lane against you that can reduce the effects of healing, it is better to use Barrier instead of Heal. When the enemy team has many powerful control skills, it makes sense to use Cleanse. In most cases, it is better to use the standard treatment and jump option.
First of all, it is better to boost the Switcheroo! With each level, the bazooka’s firing range will increase, making it easier to farm and damage enemies from a long distance. Besides, the machine gun will shoot much faster. Zap does good damage and can greatly slow down the enemy. Be sure to use the Flame Chompers. It will allow you to initiate a battle and provide a way to escape at a difficult moment. At the initial purchase, it is best to increase your damage, and a standard sword is ideal for this purpose.
Doran’s Blade is an excellently balanced artifact for the damage dealer. Of course, it can no longer be improved in the future, but it will serve you almost until the game end. It is worth selling it when you run out of space in your inventory, and you need to buy something more expensive and powerful.
At the beginning of the game, you need to farm a lot and hard since the first artifacts are very expensive. Of course, it will be much easier to manage to kill the enemy 1-2 times or if the forester helps you. But in general, the bulk of the money will be earned by finishing off minions. Usually, at the beginning of the game, there is a small choice between the two artifacts, Infinity Edge and Runaan’s Hurricane.
Of course, both can be used in the final build, but it will depend solely on the situation and how well you farm at the beginning of the game. If you don’t like Runaan’s Hurricane or it doesn’t fit the current game, it is best to replace it with Statikk Shiv. Berserker’s Greaves take boots in the overwhelming majority of cases, accordingly, increase the hero’s combat potential to increase the attack speed.
It is essential to understand that Jinx is primarily a carry hero who must deal with a lot of damage, and therefore the bulk of artifacts is bought with damage. Usually, one artifact is more than enough for protection. Moreover, protective items are bought at the very end. The following are good for the artifacts for damage: Rapid Firecannon, Bloodthirster, Phantom Dancer (used very rarely), and Lord Dominik’s Regards (buy if opponents have very good defense). Of the defensive artifacts, the Guardian Angel, Banshee’s Veil, or Mercurial Scimitar are usually used (if the enemy has a lot of control).
Jinx experiences the greatest difficulties against enemies with a good attack range and the ability to wage trench warfare. Enemies with solid initial damage will also be problematic. Below we will look at a few enemies that can cause severe difficulties.
Ashe is not the toughest champion to start the game, but she has a good attack range, unlike Jinx, and can cause insane damage to you. At level 6, Ash will have an extremely powerful Ultimate, Enchanted Crystal Arrow. At this point, you need to make sure that there are wards on the approaches to the lane since you will not have a chance to escape. In general, you can stand against Ashe, the main thing is to stay away from her fatal arrows.
On the one hand, it may seem that Miss Fortune has a reduced attack range like Jinx, but her skills and high potential offset for early harassment. If she plays competently and aggressively, then she will simply torture you with her Double Up and Make It Rain skills. It is challenging to dodge these skills. Break a leg, warriors.
Draven will have the advantage due to the Spinning Ax skill from the first level. Do not try to kill him, as it will not be in your favor. At this point, you can use your Flame Chompers or Zap. If there is a champion with Draven in the lane who can stun you, then things can go really bad. In this case, it is better not to risk it and keep your distance, finishing off enemies with your bazooka. Draven has a small attack range, and Jinx has the advantage when she attacks with a bazooka.
Jinx is one of the best champions for quick minion kills and lane pressure. This is due to her Switcheroo skill. At the beginning of the game, Jinx does not have any super abilities and largely depends on how her lane ally plays. Think out of the box and play the entire beginning of the game on farming. Try not to miss a single minion. As soon as an enemy gets close to finish off a minion, you can abruptly switch to the bazooka and fire a few shots at it. If you have a good ally on the lane with you who can attack enemies perfectly (Leona, Taric, Blitzcrank), you must help him every time he lunges towards the enemy. It is worth remembering that Jinx has phenomenal Flame Chompers.
Jinx begins to reveal her full potential halfway through the game and has the maximum Switcheroo skill’s attack speed bonus. And the powerful ultimate Super Mega Death Rocket, which can instantly change a battle’s outcome. You can play aggressively in the middle of the game and constantly push opponents in the lane. Even if you fail to kill the enemy damage dealer, you can quickly kill the minions and gradually demolish the tower.
As soon as you succeed, you can ask your forester for help and move towards the Dragon. The enemies will already be much more difficult to resist you since the safe zone will be far away (the first tower on the bottom lane will be destroyed). Remember that you need to kill the Dragon with the maximum number of allies to waste as little time as possible, and the enemies could not react quickly. It would help if you always acted as part of your team and not try to run on your own.
Bear in mind that Jinx has no escape skills and can die quickly at any moment. Be sure to use traps in any team battle, as they make it possible to pin three opponents to the ground at once. Ult is an excellent skill, and it is not necessary to use it to finish off fleeing opponents. If you see that the opponents are heaped up and have already lost part of their health, you can safely use the ult and inflict good massive damage.
At the end of the game, Jinx will be a no brainer, but you should make sure that your team is always there to protect you. If the opposing team wants to kill you quickly, then they will do it without any problems. And without a damage dealer, your allies will die in a heartbeat. Of course, you can no longer influence your allies’ game. If they played poorly and scattered, then you will not be able to drag the game. Always keep in mind the important neutrals: Dragon and Baron. By the way, the Baron plays a crucial role in massive battles. The team that received his buff gets a solid bonus to damage and can easily beat in a mass mix. Try to constantly monitor these neutrals and kill them as soon as possible.
Overall, Jinx is a powerful champion and a tough nut to crack. You need to play at least a few dozen games to understand this champion’s play style. Jinx can do a lot of damage, but you need to learn how to farm well throughout the game and quickly react to all dangerous situations. If you like damage dealers and have not yet decided on your favorite hero, try playing Jinx. Do not forget about the fineboosting.
