Jinx's Switcheroo gives her great lane-clearing ability. Switching to the minigun is good for close-combat encounters. Otherwise Rockets provide good range to damage from a safe distance.
Try to keep a good range with Rockets during teamfights unless there is a need to get in close with minigun. Staying far can ensure that you dish out damage for a long time.
Q: What are the strengths and weaknesses of Jinx in League of Legends?
A: Jinx can ramp up her attack speed through her skill. This means that your LoL Jinx build can focus on more attack damage and/or on-hit items instead of on building attack speed directly. Jinx can also discourage chasing and ganks with her flame chompers. She can also execute fleeing and other low-health enemies with her AoE nuke. While Jinx has a lot of strengths, she also has one very large weakness. She has little ability to escape if her chompers miss or she's being attacked from two directions. Focus on your positioning and don't get into unnecessary danger!
Q: How should I use Jinx's crowd control abilities?
A: Jinx's chompers are great to throw on top of enemies who have already been CC'd to keep them locked down for an extra long time. Her Zap ability is great to prevent chasing champions from catching you or to slow fleeing enemies. It is also a great poke, but since it can be dodged or intercepted, it's not a reliable source of damage. It's sometimes better to save it for when it's needed rather than throwing it out for more poke.
League of Legends Jinx players will likely find her to be a complex champion to build out properly. You'll see that her build changes when she is up against either generic or specialized team comps, meaning you should not select the same Jinx build every single game of League of Legends
The most critical items to incorporate into your champ's build include: Infinity Edge, Phantom Dancer, and Bloodthirster. Those who added these pieces in their builds had a higher win rate than players who used other Jinx builds. Likewise, if you are battling a varied enemy team composition, you should really consider grabbing her the Precision, and Inspiration runes. In recent matches, she won the greatest fraction of her games when built with these runes.
