Introduction-About Me, and why no Tank?Hi,
My name is WhiteGuyFly, and I play on the NA servers. I'm not actually the best at this game, so I focus on build that will work on low ELO or just normal solo queue play. Some of you would call me a n00b, many would be right, but I enjoy playing the game for fun, and enjoy making fun builds for low levels. I recently picked up Jayce and found him to be ridiculously OP. For me, a tanky Jayce is a waste of a character. Jayce is built for massive AD poke and being able to burst down carrys, and still have reliable exits.
Other StuffI really don't like to go over a bunch of stuff about runes and masteries. I go move speed quints to chase down runners early game, but the rest, including masteries and runes are pretty standard. With the items, I just stack as much AD as humanly possible in as little time as possible. An early is a great way to slow and harass opponents for kills easily and deny kills. As soon as you are able to get you , your harass and sustain goes way up, and teamfight ability goes up as well. The is a personal preference, the CDR and armor pen along with the active make it worth the money. With it, Jayce's Q becomes more available, which equals more harass.
Early GameEarly game, Jayce is a monster. Sit back in cannon form and farm to your heart's content, harassing when the enemy gets to close, denying them CS. When you hit lvl 2, start the E to Q poke combo, and put the enemy down to low enough health for a hammer jump and a kill. A well played early game Jayce doesn't actually need a jungler.
Team FightsJayce's role in team fights is not to jump right in, but wait for the initiate, and stand to the back in cannon form, constantly harassing the other team, until it's cleanup time. Then jump in and steal all the kills for a great success!
Final CommentsThis is my first guide, hope you guys like it. I like seeing the top lane as a second carry, not just a tank. I find this effective at low ELO and solo unranked, but would not recommend it in higher ELO games. This is mostly just a fun thing to play.
