Top 5 Builds for Jhin

Jhin is a cold-blooded murderer who sees killing as the most sublime art.

Jhin, the virtuoso is a marksman, bot laner, with HUGE damage per shot. He has low attack speed (fixed rate, it increases per level up). The fourth shot is a guaranteed crit with bonus damage based on missing health. Crits grant a short burst of movement speed. 

The huge damage comes from getting bonus AD based on current AD, converting bonus attack speed into AD and receiving bonus AD for crit strike chance.

His Q is a point-and-click grenade that bounces 4 times, increasing its damage for each unit killed. His W is a skill-shot with long-range, that roots the first enemy champion who has been recently damaged by Jhin or his team-mates. His E is a trap that slows and reveals enemies who step on it, dealing magic damage in a small area after a considerable delay. Jhin’s ultimate fires 4 shots at extreme range in a cone, with the fourth shot guaranteed to crit and to deal bonus damage based on missing HP.

Build 1-The classic build: 100% crit, big movement speed, and armor penetration

This is the classic build on Jhin, good for most situations, good movement speed and most importantly: pretty cheap, so it is best implemented in games where you fall behind with farm or kills.

Build 5-Maximum amount of damage: full potential JhinNo, it’s not a troll build. It works best on URF, but if a normal game goes into a super-late game phase (around 1-hour long game), 4 I.E.s and a B.T. should do the trick. 100% crit, 20% life steal and over 1000 AD: a late-game Jhin like this is almost unkillable.

Cost: 18.200 gold (yes, this is the most expensive one)
