The Virtuoso Jhin is one of the most popular ADC champions in LoL. his main role is a marksman and you will see him on bottom lane playing as attack damage carry. Every champion in League of Legends has its uniqueness. Jhin’s one is in his passive skill.

Jhin’s hand cannon, Whisper, is a precise instrument designed to deal superior damage. It fires at a fixed rate and carries only four shots. Jhin imbues the final bullet with dark magics to critically strike and deal bonus execute damage. Whenever Whisper crits, it inspires Jhin with a burst of movement speed. That’s why most builds are focused on increasing crit damage.

Recommended Setup





The classical choice for ADC is flash and heal. It helps you stay safe on lane while farming. But if you are playing with a healing support it might be useful to choose another spell like Cleanse to get away from control spells in dangerous situations.

Lord Dominik's Regards

This is the best build for Jhin if you want to play on a safe side and win. Of course, you will also see a lot of lethality builds and other variations but they are good only against a weaker team or a team without any tanks. As for our Jhin build you’ll see that it is great in any situation, you will be able to kill tanks fast and that will give your team an advantage.

General Tips

There are no particular winning tips. But when you play with Jhin you need to remember that his main weakness is speed. He moves very slow actually. But he has long-range and stronger auto attacks. So stay far and try to fire every 4th shot at the enemy champion. That’s how you keep them low health and far from your minions. Also, be careful and count your shots as after every 4th shot you’ll need to recharge and that takes some time. Keep that in mind and go into the team fight only with a full bar.

In addition, don’t forget to root champions that have been hit by your support. If you get the second level before your enemies you can rush for a kill if you manage to root an enemy. that will give you a great advantage on a lane.

In addition, to Ashe and Vayne there is also Lucian and Miss Fortune that can give a lot of trouble to Jhin. But if you see champions with lower range or as slow as Jhin be sure that Jhin is a great choice against them. As for supports. Any support with heal or control is a great helper for Jhin. Sometimes it is wise to pick Alistar that has passive heal and is tanky enough to give Jhin time to deal damage.
