Best Overall Build
Hey guys, I'm 41Val. I am a Jhin one trick and in this guide I will show you how to play Jhin even when behind, with this build you will always be useful to your team. The axiom build makes Jhin's abilities really shine, they are his main dmg (with this build not in general) and that's exactly why it is so good/safe. You can spam R thanks to axiom and contest objectives or kill under tower with it. Once you get your 4th item (eclipse) your auto attacks start dealing serious dmg too, at that point it should be impossible to lose. Even if you fall behind and don't have gold, your R can turn around games (stealing objectives or sniping people with bounties).
Jhin is in his nature a lane bully, that is why we're running arcane comet. It can be proccd more often than other runes and in lane more often than not your enemies wont have the movement speed(MS) to dodge the comet. Celerity is also a very good choice for Jhin since he gets MS from his 4th shot and from his W, which gets amplified even further from celerity. Cut down is situational but most of the time even if they have only 1 tank cut down will still do more dmg than coup. If they have 0 tanks though you can just pick coup.

Most of the time you'll be going heal/flash but if they have a lot of cc (for example Leona/Veigar, Braum/Varus etc) get cleanse/flash instead.
- Summs (Role 1)
Don't forget to use your E in bushes for vision or in the jungle to slow down a gank etc.
- Skill Path
Get tear immediately after axiom so you can start stacking it, Muramana is very good because it let's you deal a lot more dmg with your abilities. It is important to get Seryldas and not Lord Dominiks because with Seryldas when you hit someone with your W they wont be able to dodge your Comet unless they use a dash/flash. The W + Comet alone will be doing around 500-600 dmg. Your ult will be very strong too, don't be afraid to use it to contest objectives or to try and kill someone under tower. 5th item is situational, most of the times Ravenous Hydra is good for the sustain + AOE dmg, but rarely if and when their team is still squishy in the late game you can go Collector.
- Item Set 1
I don't think that there are any matchups that completely ruin Jhin with this build, most bad matchups like pantheon/leona can be easily countered with good positioning and Cleanse. Tanky supports with CC are best for Jhin, so Leona,Blitzcrank,Thresh etc synergize very well with him. Supports like Yuumi and Soraka are a bit useless with him but it's playable.
