IntroductionHey guys, second guide to another one of my favorite top laners, the reason being is because he hits like a truck, he's FUCKING fast, and he can be melee and ranged, the only problem with him is his mana issue, but with this guide i promise, your mid and end game will be amazing.
Masteriesthe reason i go 21/5/4 is because the extra mana regen is very helpful, trust me...he uses so much mana early game, it could be the difference between a kill or going oom while the enemy is ganking you and not being able to use your speed gate.
Runesjust simple standard runes, you could replace the quints with move speed but i like the extra damage because usually i face melee champions top, and i can just auto attack them with cannon and/or punish them when they go in for CS. up to you really.
simple and obvious summoner spells for a top laner, exhaust COULD work, but honestly, ignite helps me a lot with trades and winning the lane. you could use ghost but really, flash saves lives man...
Item Buildscrystalline flask...okay, everyone who starts boots 3 health...ready? STOP. it's not as good anymore. more and more high ELO players are realizing this, i tell everyone i'm friends with to stop doing boots 3 and open crystalline flask, 5/4 health 1 mana, and a ward. the reason being? SUSTAIN. if you can out farm your opponent, it's gg. get them behind 40-50 cs, you'll beat them every exchange and that snowballs you into late game. trust me. okay look, if i face a riven top as jayce, and she opens boots 3, i'm gonna poke her all game with my cannon form, and dive on her when i know the jungler is in another lane. she had to recall. at that point, i shove the lane, she loses gold and exp, i roam or back and buy. repeat. it's so simple, sustain beats any other starter item out. i promise, try it one game and you'll be hooked. (for champions who don't use mana, start 9 pots 2 wards. i know...it sounds crazy, but it comes down to making sure you have a solid laning phase. get ahead in cs and you win.)
also...boots of mobility? why they ask. jayce is fast already with his ulti and his speed gate, throw that on top of the speed of mobility boots...you can shove a lane, roam and be there before they have time to type it or ping. (not really, but you're really fucking fast...). need to back? no probably, drop a gate in the shrine, regen the health and mana, use the speed from the gate, your boots and spamming your ult to get back to lane before you miss a CS. it's so helpful, i wouldn't build any other boots on him. NEVER.
Final Commentsi'd really appreciate if you guys gave me a like and if you did try the build and loved it, leave a comment and let me know! this is only my second guide but it sure as hell is a solid one. thanks a lot guys.
