That said, this guide is a good starting point to helping you get to grips with the champion and making an impact in your games.

Jhin benefits greatly from items that boost his move speed, as he can be quite immobile in the early game. Thanks to his kit and his exceptional range, he's a good ADC for pushing the lane, but given he has no escape tools, you'll need to be extra vigilant against ganks from the river.

  • Level 1 - Take Q - Dancing Grenade, for the wave push and poke potential. 
  • Level 2 - Take W - Deadly Flourish, for more poke and damage.
  • First Back - Pick up your boots for the move speed, then work towards your Galeforce.

Tips & Tricks

  • Dancing Grenade gains extra damage if an enemy is killed from one of the bounces. Try to kill three minions with it before it bounces to an enemy champion.
  • Deadly Flourish can stun an opponent, providing the target has been very recently damaged.
  • Your fourth auto-attack and fourth shot of Curtain Call inflict extra damage based on the enemy's missing health, so focus on targets that are low. 
  • Pay attention to your positioning during Curtain Call, as you'll be vulnerable briefly after your fourth shot.
